hehe thats a unique name...for sure you will see a big banner with bold prints tomorrow...
overeacting wont help UFC/basketball ADMRT Squad from winning...and Besides La Salle simply won against UST (who gave you a lost) w/o its 2 key players...so better keep yourself calm and just watch the game...
As the mantra goes...
ANIMO LA SALLE!
Animo La Salle!
Win at all costs!
NEVER SHALL WE FAIL!
baka may extra ticket kayo.
If AVO decided to man up against Slaughter on defense, then we have a big chance.
DLSU by 3-5 pts. ANIMO LA SALLE!
what avo needs to do is to adjust to the calls. he was part of the lineup that made the comeback against ateneo in the first round.
AVO is the key to winning this game. He has to guard Slaughter for his life. Hopefully he should know by now how to guard him without incurring fouls. This game will put Jun Limpot's training skills to the test.
I think Kiefer's defense is underated. I think Teng and Ravena will cancel each others out but his basketball IQ to find open teammates is a different story. Salva will play a vital role again for pop ups once GS is doubled team. With school pride in play I think maturity and experience still counts.
For DLSU LA needs to play, his more consistent and willing to pass more. Their first meeting is fear the bear. I hope he could live to his name this second duel.
ADMU by 5-10.
The key to beating Ateneo is taking out Slaughter. DLSU big men once again have their hands full but i believe it can be done.
This La Salle team is ready.
Seems impossible, but hoping for a La Salle win pa rin. Animo!
Good Luck to the Blue Eagles.
Mary, For You.
For Your White and Blue.
One Big Fight!
Ateneo's confident on this. Pure teamwork!
Go for 9-1

Mode: serious, mamaya na yong alaska (o hikbi lol)
Even on their last championship year, La Salle only managed 2 as against Ateneo's 3 over their rival. That was the last of its dynasty year and it prompted then coach Pumaren to coin his now famous math 2>3.
The year that followed was the start of ADMU's dynasty (and DLSU's die-nasty). They never won a single game against ADMU, 4-0, which prompted Pumaren to seek greener pasture in politics but lost just the same, and their alumni led by tgm to endlessly rant till kingdom come, or in their case, limbo lol
Trend/pattern lookout --- it's an established fact that since 2007 (after the debacle in 2006 and fluke loss) NB and ADMU have never been 'repeated over', by that, I mean no team has won twice (in succession or consecutively) against them. On the contrary, you beat them once, and the retribution has been great in the next; a good testament to their great ability to adjust. Also, they mostly won by a single digit on their 1st round games, but double in the second. You may attribute that to proper pacing and peaking at the right time. Or simply showing that the first was no fluke.
So if the script/pattern keeps true to form, I expect this game to be yet another double digit win. The first round was more closely fought than what the final score indicated. It took a rookie boboo by the 'scorer' himself, for that to get to double.
