We won! Ateneo vs UST UAAP Finals – Game 2

Game 3 – Championship update here!

 —

A quick update:

I just got news that the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers finally grabbed a huge chunk off the Championship trophy! The UST Tigers won Game 2 of the 69th Season of the UAAP Basketball Finals, ending the match with a 87-71 score. Weeh! I am so happy!

Go USTe!!!

The Ateneo Blue Eagles won Game 1, 73-72, last September 23. The Tigers and Eagles are now tied with 1-1 card. Game 3 will surely be an interesting game.

Random Fact #1: This is the first time that ADMU and UST faced off in a UAAP Finals.

Random Fact #2: UST last won the title in 1996. Will it this year’s team bring the Glory of ’96 back to UST in 2006?

We, Thomasians, certainly hope so!

Full update next time! I’m just so happy that I had to post this! More info about Game 2 next time. Hahaha. See you in the Finals, guys! =)

    Mr. brenan roldan, may mga reaction lang ako sa comment mo dito.

    Una, ang san beda ay nanalo lang dahil may isang nigerian na unggoy na pumasok sa kanila. Ganun yata kadesperado ang san beda dahil nag recruit pa talaga sila ng malaking unggoy. Kung wala si Ekwe, walang kwenta ang san beda team. malamang nga di sila aabot sa final four kung wala si Ekwe e.

    Pangalawa, napaka-jologs mo para magsalita ng ganyan. Malamang nga squatter ka kasi ganyan ka magsalita dito. Wala ka ng respeto sa may-ari ng blog na ito.

    Pangatlo, confident ako na kung sino man ang mananalo sa UST vs Ateneo, e kayang-kaya nun talunin ang San Beda.

    Di ako taga-UST o Ateneo. Ayoko lang talaga sa San Beda ngayon dahil nag recruit pa sila ng foreigner na walang bahid man lang ng dugong Pilipino para lang manalo. Napaka-pathetic e. Kaya di ko mapigilan na di mag reply sa comment mo Mr. Roldan (kung totoong name mo nga yan).

    Sa may-ari ng blog na ito, pasensya na po sa amin. 🙂

  3. Toni Said:

    haaay… eto nanaman ang kabaliwan. tsk tsk.

  4. erock Said:

    We are the champions!!!! congratulations to my fellow thomasians! and to the thomasian community.

    Whew! what a game! without Jervy and Evangelista in O.T. no less! it was a cliffhanger!

    hats off also to ateneo for putting up a good game and a worthy opponent.

    GO USTe!!!!!

  5. Michiko Said:

    @ Brendan Roldan: Kindly watch what you’re saying. That’s all.

    @ Maverick: Apology accepted. Hay naku. Kelan kaya darating ang panahon na magiging matno ang mga magpo-post ng comments? *iyak*

    @ Toni: True, true

    @ Erock: w00t! tara, kanta tayo! “God of all nations….” Muhahaha. FINALLY!!! Go Uste! Go Uste! Go Uste! Go Go Go Go! 😀

  6. don Said:

    now we’ll be looking for the next 3 more championships,ganun ang ginawa ng ust the last time na nag-champion sila, apat na sunod. bata pa ang mga players nila and they are grroming jervy cruz as the next enrico villanueva! astig uste….kudos to the coaching staff and the players! helluva game!

  7. Michiko Said:

    True, true! I share the enthusiasm. I salute Jervy Cruz; I dunno if this is true but I heard from the commentators on Game 1 that Jervy used to be just on the practice team and that he was a bit overweight. But I guess Coach Pido saw the amazing potential that this kid has and got him in a more ideal weight. He seems so comfortable with his body. Given more training and experience, he’d be a really good basketball player that UST won’t forget. I saw the major improvement too on Anthony Espiritu. I still remember him as a rookie… hehe, he was still kind of awkward when he holds the ball then. Operative word was “then” Hehe.

    JC Intal, J. Reyes and Chris Tiu of Ateneo were also really good, but it was the play of M. Quimson that catches my attention. Like Jervy, give him more training and experience, gagaling pa lalo. Buti binigyan si Quimson ng mas maraming playing time.

    Waah! Sana sunodsunod ulit for UST! w00t!

  8. joman Said:

    Im sorry to all UST supporters but you won’t taste the championship next year because DLSU will be back in the hunt fo the championship. D-L-S-U Animo LaSalle!

  9. Robbie Said:

    Joman,

    No offense ha, pero i’m actually wishing DLSU was part of this years tournament. Unfortunately, hindi e. Bakit nga ba? Kindly refresh my memory naman. thanks!

  10. keith Said:

    to joman,

  11. keith Said:

    d mo ba alam na nandaya ang DLSU at season 68?
    kasi nman, pineke pa nila ung papers of eligibility sa skul
    ng player nilang d naman gaanong ginagamit.. c mark Benitez..
    yun! binawi pa nga yung championship trophy nila nung nag champion sila with mac cardona!

  12. jpf Said:

    wekj. go USTe..!!! Nope.. this is not the first time that UST and ADMU faced off!!! 75 yeatrs ago im NCAA

  13. tremorz Said:

    End of the day story, I think that the UAAP has truly evolved to be an independent and powerful sports institution. In the absence of any school (DLSU or otherwise) the game between ADMU and UST will go down the annals of collegiate basketball as the best game (if not one of) in collegiate basketball history…a truly superb game played by 2 teams from the best learning institutions in the country. A brave and galant fight from Ateneo but UST has a destiny in its side….Go USTE….

  14. erock Said:

    USte will host season 70 next!! and there is an old tradition that whenever UST hosts the season ….. they hold on to the championshp! 4peat all on\ver again!

  15. Michiko Said:

    Victory party later (Oct 4) at UST, 6pm =)

  16. joey Said:

    to our friend from la salle, joman… we’re not suppose to read your comment here coz you cheaters should be suspended right? so just go back next year pal… you know this is unbelievable on how some people really had the guts to post his argument where on the first place he should be ashame of his team/ school caught of CHEATING… PANDARAYA… PANDARAMBONG!!! dyan kayo magaling… may pa animo animo ka pang animal ka!… mandarayang garapal naman kayo!!!…

    to my ALMA MATTER…
    lets enjoy the moment… looking forward for more… CONGRATS TIGERS…

  17. Jethernandez Said:

    Congratulations to the Thomasians.

    I’m an Atenean at heart. Pero, it’s a good series… games played well. UAAPs purpose is to foster goodwill among the universities… secondary na dito ang sportsmanship.

    So… till next chaompionship.

  18. meenoll Said:

    go ateneo one big fight!
    i believe in ateneo!
    for me they are the real champ!
    go admu!
    go go go!!!!!

  19. andy Said:

    that was unfair to the lasallian…

    Please remember that it was a voluntary effort of lasalle to uncover this anomaly done by one or two of its administrators. At least they were decent enough to return the trophies and concede defeat when they could have indefinitely hidden the truth.

    Let’s not spoil our victory with uncalled for bashing. We are educated individuals aren’t we?

    Go Tigers! No doubt that you will dominate next year by crushing the archer’s arrows and the eagle’s wings with one mighty pounce.

    Go USTe!

  20. kobe Said:

    mr. maverick, fyi. di naman pinilit si ekwe na maglaro sa san beda. kung alam mo lang ang dahilan kung bakit niya pinili ang san beda para magalro.. well, di ko naman dapat idetalye pa… tignan nalang naten sa mga susunod pang mga events kung sino ang mananalo sa ust o ateneo versus san beda….

  21. gracie Said:

    ok! ok!
    BRENAN ROLDAN, wag ka naman maxadong mataas ang tingin sa sarili at confident at baka madapa ka.. masakit rin ang madapa ha?! let’s see if mananalo nga yang bet mo next season.. kung mananalo, then congrats pero pag hindi *slap*.. ok? kaya dahan-dahan sa pananalita.. wag kakalimutan na papasok na ang DLSU next season.. tsk.tsk.tsk…

    MAVERICK, wag mo naman sisihin si ekwe kung biniyayaan siya ni Lord ng hieght at magaling siya mag basketball.. kasi kung super magaling talaga ang player kahit dambuhala at higante pa ang kalaban niya eh matatalo niya.. *peace*.. kung pagbabasihan ang fact, lamang nga ang san beda dahil kay ekwe pero remember na ang basketball ay team work.. kaya aanhin ang isang magaling kung wala namang team work.. ok? gets?! kaya, kung mananaloman ang san beda, they deserve it!! o kahit sinong team na mananalo, u guys deserve it!!

    dun sa mga taong natalo ang bet, magaling naman ang players eh kaya lang may mas magaling lang talaga at mas may determination.. at wala pa akong naririnig na literaly puro panalo’;walang talo.. so ganun talaga ang lyf.. may panalo at may talo.. but whats important, we learn to achieve the spirit of sportsmanship..

    *peace out*

  22. crook Said:

    san beda is justa a bling bling trying to asociate with ateneo dlsu ust and up. please lang and as far as i know ust TEAM B defeated san beda in the recent homegrown. duh

  23. crook Said:

    kahit saan ba naman MAYAYABANG ang mga trying hard na taga san beda

  24. mr crook loser Said:

    wag ka masyado mataas… di ako taga san beda pero ito lang ang masasabi ko, nood ka ng pbl…. nangangamote ust…. mas trying hard kayo and mga players nyo…. walang dating! hehe

  25. crook Said:

    not really, im confident with our team…just so you know the TEAM B of ust scrappped this obnoxious bedans. know your history, baka lamunin ka ng sinasabi mo.

    you’re far away from our insitituion.

  26. warrior Said:

    UST? Sa lahat ng UAAP schools, ito ang mahilg dumikit sa Ateneo, La Salle at UP.. sobrang tring hard mg estudyante…hoy! sinusuka kayo ng 3 paaralan na yan..pati na ibang kasama niyo sa UAAP. Magpakatotoo naman.

  27. warrior Said:

    UST?

    Gigibain namin kayo next year.. asa pa kayong manalo laban sa La Salle…

    TH talaga… Utot Sabay Tae! bwahahahaha…

  28. warrior Said:

    Sabi ni Andy:

    “Go Tigers! No doubt that you will dominate next year by crushing the archer’s arrows and the eagle’s wings with one mighty pounce.

    Go USTe!”

    Archers at Eagles daw o…trying hard magpakasosyal ..hahaha..

    Ibabasura lang namin kayo next year!

  29. xent Said:

    Wow, we never associated our name with Ateneo, UST, or even DLSU…We have our own League and we have our own “name” that we are proud of. The Bedan community is small, yes, and we are contented. No BS, no Media exposure, no nothing… just behind the lime-light.

    As to being “MAYABANG”, well, all schools have their own breed or group. That’s the common notion among Bedans because SBC is an “all-boys” school (before)…everyone’s rowdy, noisy and out of control…but have you guys met a Bedan? I mean, truly met “ONE”? Those obnoxious, proud and conceited “bedans” usually gets kicked out after 2 years and still associate themselves to San Beda even if they’re already enrolled in another school.

    Regarding Sam Ekwe, we never scouted for him. He came to San Beda because he wanted to be a Benedictine Priest, he doesn’t even play Basketball in Nigeria, he’s a “soccer freak”. That explains why he only knows one shot, and that’s the “DUNK”. All the basics, he learned here courtesy of Coach Koy Banal and Freddie Abuda. Guys, get real…how would you explain Pep Moore of San Sebastian?
    he too is not a Filipino…but not a stone was thrown at him

    I guess what happened is, nobody’s expecting San Beda’s Triumph in the recently concluded NCAA. An under-dog for the last 28 years then Boom! Sweet Victory Baby! well, so much for the under-dog…

  30. xent Said:

    Oh, by the way, to the owner…

    I just can’t tolerate some uneducated people thrashing on San Beda’s name. Sorry if my post is off-the-topic…

    for the record, brenan roldan is not a Bedan…I’ve checked the records. I guess he’s a fan.

    Anyway…

    To the Winners, congratulations! to al the LOSERS, better luck next time…

    Animo SAN BEDA!
    GO SAN BEDA FIGHT!!!

  31. crook Said:

    sus, trying not tring BOBO. UST is the tower in academe and sports. UST sominate in all field. that’s flexibility. UST is UST

  32. crook Said:

    erratum: dominate

  33. lizzie Said:

    UST isn’t really the only tower in academe. Each school has their own field of expertise. I don’t think that UST dominates in all fields. Maybe the reason is because UST has a huge community of people who don’t need to study as hard as the other schools.

  34. snowhite Said:

    nakakatuwa naman basahin ang mga posts dito. first of all, im a UST alumni AND a San Beda college of law student. bakit napunta sa schools ang away eh basketball ang pinag-uusapan dito?
    lahat ng schools may mga trying hard, feeling, mayabang, etc. all i can say is, UST is a center of excellence pagdating sa bachelor of arts. Beda naman, college of law. Kaya nga dito ako pumunta. DLSU din, i heard magaling ang mga computer courses, Ateneo naman, creative writing ata. So lahat ng schools may “best.” Sa totoo lang, nagulat ako na nanalo ang UST, magaling tlga si coach Pido. Minsan, nasa coach tlga ang pagkapanalo ng team. And Ekwe is a nice guy. Wag naman laitin. Madalas na nga asarin sa quarters, pati ba naman kayo. =)
    Go USTe!

  35. Don Said:

    Well excuse me… we dont need to associate ourselves to Ateneo, DLSU, UP, and most especially UST for us to have a name…
    We’re Damn proud of our school…
    SAN BEDA CAN STAND ALONE…
    We, Bedans, are proud of our school’s spirit…

    By the way… I’ve been monitoring the San Beda-UST matches and San Beda won more games dumb ass…

  36. Don Said:

    And Brenan Roldan, I dont know if your a fan, a bedan, or a former bedan (if ever you got kicked out).. Please dont use the name of San Beda while acting like a total jack ass…

    If you want to act like a total jerk dont use San Beda’s name… its literally unBedanly…

    Go use Letran’s name instead

  37. Vejano Said:

    Tiga UST ako… kami ang pinaka-magandang eskwelahan sa buong mundo!!!

    We spit on Ateneo’s face
    We are a far better school than La Salle
    Our COLLEGE OF LAW IS BETTER THAN
    SAN BEDA
    and we OWN UAAP!!!

    Mga dukha ang ibang eskwelahan…

    GO USTe!!!

  38. USTe sucks Said:

    I would like to comment on Vejano’s “Tiga UST ako… kami ang pinaka-magandang eskwelahan sa buong mundo!!!” statement.

    I pity you in your shallow belief, maybe as a result of hasty thinking or to say, EMPTY thinking as there is so much less to think.

    If the basis of an excellent university is on the victory of a basketball game (which was made for the sole purpose of promoting athletic activities w/in universities and entertainment for fanatics) then no wonder the Philippines is plunging in deeper pits.

    “Dukha” is a very relative word, as you mentioned. But no matter how i look at it, USTe may be the most “dukha” of all the 4 schools you mentioned.

    ADMU boasts of its unbeatable educational system
    DLSU brags of its great facilties and airconditioned buildings

    and USTe?

  39. greenieobserver Said:

    duh!!!

    HOY MGA TAGA – UNIBERSIDAD NG SANTO TOMAS!!!
    FACE THE REALITY!!!
    SABIT LNG KAYO SA
    LA SALLE, UP and ATENEO!!

    MGA NAKIKISABIT LNG KAU KAYA WAG KAYONG MAYABANG!!!

    UST is JUST UST!! isang T.H na eskwelahan ng mga iskwater!!

    id rather choose SAN BEDA na makilinya saming mga tga la salle w/ UP and ATENEO!!

    UST sucks!

  40. Vejano Said:

    San Beda duh?!?
    you rather have San Beda be associated with
    UP, Ateneo, and Lasalle than UST?
    Yuck! You obviously dont have taste..
    you rather have mongrels, mga patay gutom at dukhang Bedan be with you?
    well Bedans kiss USTe’s ass while UP ATENEO and LASALLE are next in line!
    siguro tiga Lasalle ka?
    actualy, you should be erased from the top 3 schools and UST shall claim its rightfull place
    UST,UP, Ateneo…
    with San Beda kissing our toes…

  41. the just Said:

    hmmm…dami’ng proud sa mga schools nila, however, the behavior being exhibited here by said people won’t be one their respective schools would be proud of.

  42. Isko Said:

    I find it pathetic that a number of you guys think that your school is the best solely because you won championships in sports.

    Let’s just face the facts, okay?

    PHILIPPINE SCHOOLS IN WORLDWIDE RANKINGS:
    UNIVERSITY OF THE PHILIPPINES- 299
    De La Salle University – 392
    Ateneo de Manila University – 484
    University of Santo Tomas – 500

    Enough said.

    @ Vejano: Go kiss my MAROON gluteus maximus. I may not be an Archer fan, but UST is better than DLSU? The best in the world? C’mon, stop taking spliffs and smell the roses. You need some reality check.

    We may not be the best in university sports programs, but WE ARE THE BEST WHERE IT COUNTS. U.P. is THE premiere university of our motherland. THAT is a non sequitur.

  43. Isko Said:

    Yes, we Maroons are a proud breed of people. We don’t just talk the talk. WE WALK THE WALK. We’ve got empirical data to prove it.

    What about you, Vejano? What’s your basis?

    U.P. following the coattails of U.ST.? Maybe in sports. Maybe in Men’s Basketball. That one I can concede.

    But over-all? Us UPians next in line after Thomasians? HAH! Check the stats. UST is down at 500. That means you are 201 universities behind us — and that is world wide. From where we are standing, you’re looking at the butts of U.P., DLSU, and ADMU.

    If Jose Rizal came at a time when U.P. was already established, he’d probably be a Maroon too.

  44. Isko Said:

    And in case you think I’m making this all up, check the website:

    http://www.topuniversities.com/worlduniversityrankings/

    @Vejano: Rightful place you say? Don’t make me laugh. I’m sorry but I really find it pathetic and quite insulting that you’ve got the balls to include U.P. and glorify your school at our expense without factual data.

    I take pride in being from U.P. — the bastion of Academic Excellence in the Philippines. I come from a family where being a Maroon is the norm. Don’t you dare take out that pride. If you do, prove it.

  45. daphne Said:

    oh c’mon guys, kelangan ba talaga na mag-away kau?

  46. Isko Said:

    @daphne: To tell you the truth, I find it quite childish when people do ad hominems when they can’t substantiate their cases with cold hard facts and just stick to the issue. All they do is blah and blah’s, jeers and sneers. As if winning the UAAP crown makes you a better student, a better university.

    I’m not fighting anyone, dearie. I’m just arguing. There’s a difference there.

    UST won the championship and that’s a fact. The Tigers are the best for SY 06-07. Whoever won the finals, bar any form of cheating or technicalities, does deserve the crown. We all should acknowledge that. The UAAP crown was never given in a silver platter. All those who participated know pretty well the hardships and sacrifices they have gone through the season.

    DLSU can’t make a case that if they participated last season they would have been champions. If they do, then they assume too much.

    Ateneo should (and they did) accept the defeat gracefully.

    U.P. should try harder. We have almost always end up being the doormat next to N.U. I guess my alma mater would rather concentrate pulling our resources to improve our quality of education and not be complacent of being on top when it comes to academe-related issues.

    Winning the UAAP Men’s Basketball was never U.P.’s top priority or at least one of the urgent items to address. We don’t need it to affirm ourselves and take pride of our institution.

    I couldn’t say the same when it comes to other schools.

  47. haaay Said:

    hay nako. aanhin ang magandang skul kung bobo ka nman??? ako taga ust ako. pero wla akong pinipili. bsta nagtest lang ako at pumasa. khit saang skul ok na. mga pa-SOSI dyan wla kayong kwenta. mga inutil. wla kayong alam kundi magpataasan ng ihi. grumaduate muna kayo bago kayo magyabang.

  48. Keep up the wonderful piece of work, I read few content on this internet site and I believe that your weblog is real interesting and has circles of fantastic information.
