    UP

    The elusive 14-0 for ADMU (aka the 13-1 records of ADMU).

    Season 80: Spoiled by DLSU in the last elimination game.
    Season 74: Spoiled by ADU in the last elimination game.
    Season 72: Spoiled by UP (round 1 loss).
    Season 71: Spoiled by FEU (round 1 loss).

    If the Maroons play the Blue Eagles the way they played the Archers, then UP will definitely lose. Too many individualistic plays if you ask me. The Maroons fell in love with one on one plays for their athletic stars which worked during the first and half of the second quarter. But when their shots began to falter, then La Salle was able to mount a comeback because theirs were more team oriented basketball. They stuck to their system of setting up their designated shooters on specific plays. Its just that sometimes the more talented and athletic team wins at the end. But this won't happen to a well disciplined team like Ateneo.

    Congrats to UP for clinching the Twice to Beat advantage but that win vs La Salle shows they're still too trigger happy and iso heavy. Ateneo by 18.

    ADMU S'77 has the blueprints for the 17-0 immaculate season.

    I'm praying to the health of the players.

    Outside of establishing whether its going to be step ladder or the traditional way the F4 is played, this is, for all intents and purposes, is a "no bearing" game. That said, I dont think both teams are gonna treat it as such lest of course they suffer the same fate as that team who fiddled with a "no bearing" game last year.  ;)

    What will happen in a stepladder format? no 3 vs no 4 with twice to beat to number 3. then the winner of matchup will face UP who also has twice to beat. Then the winner will face Ateneo in the 3 game finals. Is this correct?

    #3 vs #4 knock-out game
    #2 (twice-to-beat) vs #3 or #4

    #1 vs stepladder survivor in best-of-3 finals

    Isolation will NEVER work against Ateneo. unless maybe if you had a Lebron and not a Kobe.

    With regards on one-on-one and isolation, I can say that only PARAS and Javi GOMEZ DE LIANO can somehow be their (UPMBT) advantage kung pag-uusapan lang ay brute force and sheer athleticism. 
  • pretradginpretradgin PEx Rookie ⭐
    The key for Ateneo in this game is to dictate their pace. It would be foolish for them to match UP's fast pace which favors the athleticism of the Maroon stars. Kobe Paras, Ricci Rivero, Manzo and Juan De Leano brothers all thrive in a go go environment. What the Eagles should do is execute their half court offense and mix it up with opportunistic fast breaks. 
  • feelingerofeelingero That darn rookie. PEx Guru 🎖️🎖️
    Go Ateneo! Sige inyo na. Lol.

    Chill lang muna kami. Makaexperience man lang ng non-intense game for once this season.

    Basta importante walang ma-injure, at makakuha ng enough rest to recover and regroup ang UP coming into the semis.

    UP's advantage is that they are used to cardiac games. They will no longer be unfazed by sizeable leads, and know that they can squeak by if the game is close towards the end of the 4th quarter. They know how to take advantage of opponents who step off the gas pedal.

    Ateneo on the other hand seems to have learned from that close call against FEU. Furthermore, they have managed to give their bench significant minutes during their last two games, allowing guys like Andrade and Malilin to figure out their role in the team; this will allow Tab to field in effective unknowns into the court.
