Ateneo High vents ire on UE for solo third as NU-NS, FEU-D continue runs in UAAP 82

Ateneo High School took solo third in the UAAP Season 82 Boys’ Basketball Tournament after booting out first round tormentor University of the East with a 78-54 beatdown, Wednesday at Blue Eagle Gym.

The Junior Warriors kept in pace with the Blue Eaglets in the first quarter, even leading by a point after the period, 18-17. But it was all Ateneo after that, outscoring its foes in the middle frames, 49-18, to put the game away, 66-36.

“‘Yun talaga ‘yung naging mindset namin today — atonement. ‘Yung seniors na rin namin ‘yung nagsabi na in the first round, we took UE lightly and we lost,” said Ateneo coach Reggie Varilla. His team previously lost to UE in the first round, 81-80, off a buzzer-beating putback by Natz San Juan.

Jynno Ladimo had a field day with 21 points on a remarkable 4-of-6 shooting from deep to go with 10 rebounds as the Blue Eaglets improved to 7-5.

Lebron Lopez added 13 points and four rebounds, while Josh Lazaro unloaded 11 markers and 18 rebounds.

On the other hand, CJ Austria was the lone bright spot for the 3-9 UE with 16 points and eight boards.
