It's a 3-peat! ADMU is UAAP Season 73 Men's Basketball Champion

The Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) Blue Eagles have claimed the championship title of the UAAP Men's Basketball for the 3rd consecutive year.

It's a 3-peat as they say - three and repeat!

After winning Game 1, the Blue Eagles won again over Far Eastern University (FEU) Tamaraws during Game 2 of the UAAP Season 73 finals held today, September 30, in Araneta Coliseum.

FEU actually started the game right by collecting 22 points during the 1st Quarter, with a 9-point lead over Ateneo, but the latter proved in the remaining 3 quarters that as the defending champion, they're not that easy to beat.

The final scores were 65-62.

Points earned in every quarter
1st Quarter: ADMU 13 FEU 22
2nd Quarter: ADMU 17 FEU 9
3rd Quarter: ADMU 22 FEU 19
4th Quarter: ADMU 13 FEU 12

Ateneo's Ryan Buenafe was the best player and the Finals MVP with 23 big points, his highest score ever this season. He won P30,000 cash prize from PSBank. (Did you see it? He also won a sweet and gentle kiss from teammate Raymond Austria!)

ADMU Blue Eagles were all prepared for their 3-peat victory as they wore white t-shirts with "Three-peat Champions" printed on them. (I also like to have that shirt!)

Congrats Ateneo! So proud to be an Atenista!
