1. It was Verrayo who lit up the coliseum, not arena yet, as it was called.
2. It's the biggest win, in terms of margin, against Dlsu (and by either team on the other), a feat almost but not quite replicated by Dlsu in another game and season.
3. Halftime was most memorable with the 'jacket switching' routine; doon lang naman sa halftime cheer naka-abuso ang Ateneo lol aside from this game na na-molestiya ang La Salle. Dito rin ata nauso yong bansag na DLRT hehe
peace La Sallians!
ps: also, an afterthought, their present/current coach now was the starting pg for La Salle then. I may be wrong though.
Through the years, just my observation, Dlsu had done well with strong big guys and mediocre guards than the other way around. With the exception of JV (who had a slasher in Yeo, shooter in Ritualo, and good big in Rico but which was the tailend of their 'dynasty'), their formula had always been Limpots, Telans, and Allados (read: big dominating centers), never Pumarens (Dindo), Monasterios, Abanillas, or even a Casio. Oh also, the first to recruit amboys^^ which the other teams followed suit with all the Cameroonians lol. No, Steve Watson doesn't count as a foreigner^^ back in the Ncaa and the jump to Uaap. So enough of the 'mercenary' talks already, ok.

Agree, DLSU was the first to recruit players with foreign blood, and everyone criticized them for it then. Now, everyone is doing it. How times change.
My favorite teams, however, were the teams which had a lot of pretty boys…Mon Jose, Dominic Uy, Cali Orfrecio etc.
Parang Duke-North Carolina lang yan! Walang pakialam ang mga fans sa standings! Its the rivalry that counts!
Slaughter has shown his weakness when he is defended roughly (San Sebastian showed this on the finals of PCCL). i guess the only thing for lasalle to do is to play tough defense against him and they have a chance of winning this game.
AVO has just been admitted to St. Luke's. Dengue daw.
Statistically, Ateneo would most probably win over La Salle, even by a big margin (I'm guessing 6-8 points). However as the ADMU-UST game showed, the ball is round and the Archers are starving to beat the blue team more than anyone else.
Kawawang Ateneo, naexpose ang weakness nila - "Pag minamalas nga naman"
dlsu 46 (end)
admu 55 (halftime)
anu kamo? isang half ang partida? Sobra naman yan!
Well I personally don't think the UST game exposed a weakness of Ateneo. It was more of a bad hair day for the Blue Eagles rather than UST exploiting the achilles heel of Ateneo. It's La Salle whose weakneses are already a public secret among teams (bad free throws, unable to do perimeter shots etc)
