2012 FilOil Battle for 3rd place-Ateneo Blue Eagles vs. San Beda Red LionsThe Ateneo Blue Eagles claim 3rd place of the FilOil Flying V Preaseason Tournament with a win over the San Beda Red Lions, 66-55 and finish with an 8-3 record.

After the 3rd deadlock at 8-all, the Blue Eagles went on a 10-4 tear for a 16-12 lead.

The Red Lions momentarily took the driver’s seat at the 7:56 mark of the 2nd quarter, until Keifer Ravena and Greg Slaughter ignited an 8-0 run for a 24-17 lead with 3:26 left in the 1st half.

San Beda came to within 2-points after two free throws from Ola Adeogun, at that point, when Ateneo sparked a 9-0 run, for a 49-38 lead at the end of the 3rd quarter, they were virtually unreachable.

Greg Slaughter scored 12 of his 24 points in the 4th quarter including 11 rebounds to put the Red Lions at bay in the final period.

Jake Pascual had 15-points while Adeogun had 12-points, and Baser Amer with 10-points, losing their 2nd straight game in the preseason tournament.

  • Baser "The Hammer" Barocca says:

    Mas deserve ni Baser Amer ma include sa Mythical 5 kaysa kay Kiefer Ravena in my opinion.

    • boxingCHAMP says:

      opinyon mo yan eh pero wla durog lang tlga kayo, Amer at Ravena parehong Overrated mahinang klase.

  • Spinning Back Fist says:

    Fr. Martin’s Champion, Filoil 3rd place, two trophies in three days, Okay na yun.

    Congratulations Eagles.
    Go Ateneo!!
    One Big Fight!!

    • seven says:

      Give the Blue Eagles some time to rest and tweak some irritants… The UAAP will be a great show…

    • boxingCHAMP says:

      wala naman wenta mga kasali sa Fr.Martins iilang team lang kasali don at team B karamihan ang sinasali nila kaya wag ka mag angas lolo

      • Spinning Back Fist says:

        So the F*** what kung “walang wenta”? It’s not who or where you beat eh. It’s how you finish the preseason heading to the big one. I think its important, though not really “very”, to go to the UAAP wars with confidence by grabbing some trophies here and there.

  • Old Blue says:

    Aside from Baser Amer, LA Revilla was my candidate for the Filoil Mythical 5.

  • seven says:

    ADMU is lacking one piece: a Kirk Long…

    • Navigator says:

      They’re hoping that Von Pessumal, a 6’1″ defensive whiz during his Blue Eaglet days. will be Long’s successor if not this year, maybe next year.

    • boxingCHAMP says:

      wag na mag dahilan, cno sa One Piece ang kulang? c Monkey d Luffy? ung Kirk Long di nmn kasali un sa Once Piece,baka si Zoro sinasabi mo.

    • Senile Old Coot says:

      about the twins being back in sbc?

      “walang wenta” talaga! after saying nag regress sila, they’re coming back to regress some more!!!

  • SCD Redux says:

    the RL’s weaknesses came out during the crunch. that void left by armon at 2 has not been solved.

    dls was able to read the open court game of the RL’s…they didn’t give it to them!

    we’re becoming predictable off the fastbreak.

    and then there is Ola…oh Ola. torres toyed w/him and he looked lost there.

    ronnie’s got his work cut-out for him.

  • SCD Redux says:

    and then there’s the thing about our rotation. we’ve got a great bench. for some reason, ronnie didn’t use it to it’s full extent.

    benefit of the doubt. he’s still tweeking? well, barely a couple of weeks away from opening day. we need to get our acts together real quick!

  • SCD Redux says:

    suggestion lang naman. sorela was benched on the dls game. why not try him out at 2? he’s got size and agility.

  • SCD Redux says:

    …instead of insisting on koga?

  • boxingCHAMP says:

    SDC Redux- pare wag na mag excuse talo talga kayo nuod ka nlng ng replay baka sali manalo kau

  • wolverine says:

    What happened to Armon? Left because not getting paid enough locally? Did he get a better offer to play in the US? Is he a mercenary too like the Semerads?
