The 3-point loss to Ateneo in the NO-BEARING match can no doubt only FIRE UP the proud and never-say-die defending Champions Green Archers in the FINAL 4.
As Coach Franz says its good that the loss came this early and NOT in the FINAL 4. Sure the valiant Green Archers lost but not after seizing the lead with just 1-1/2 minutes to go after trailing by 10 points in the final 10 minutes. Another example of the Green Archers' fabled never-say-die ANIMO SPIRIT.
The Green Archers will definitely play at peak strength and resolve in the FINAL 4.
The Green Archers will ACHIEVE the THREE-PEAT this UAAP Season.
Congrats to the Blue Eagles for beating the Green Archers by 3 points in the 2nd round.
It was as usual a very good game in the tradition of past classic De La Salle-Ateneo matches.
But remember the Green Archers massacred the Blue Eagles by 24 points in the 1st round.
ANIMO LA SALLE!
