IN PHOTOS: Ateneo vs NU – UAAP Season 82, 1st round

MANILA, Philippines – Ateneo made sure to avoid a heart-stopper against National University.

After seeing the Bulldogs push their first 4 opponents to the limit, the Blue Eagles came out charging from the get-go to hack out a lopsided victory, 71-50, in the UAAP Season 82 men’s basketball tournament on Sunday, September 22 at Ynares Center in Antipolo.

"Generally, I thought our effort was where it needed to be," said Ateneo coach Tab Baldwin.
