Baldwin, Goorjian face off anew as Ateneo takes on Bay Area in tune-up

After 14 years, Tab Baldwin is set to meet a former rival again on Saturday.

Baldwin and the Blue Eagles are scheduled to take on Brian Goorjian and Bay Area in a tune-up game on Saturday at Moro Lorenzo Gym in Quezon City.

The game is set to tip off at 4:45 PM and will be streamed on SMART Sports.

Baldwin and Goorjian have gone a long way.

Both Baldwin and Goorjian dominated the New Zealand-NBL and NBL-Australia, respectively, in the 90s with the former winning five crowns and the latter taking two.

Of course, being the best coaches in their respective countries, Baldwin would coach the Tall Blacks while Goorjian coached the Boomers.

The two would trade wins in the Oceania wars, earning each others respect.

Definitely, the two rivals turned pals can’t wait to see each other on Saturday.2022-World-University-Basketball-Series-Ateneo-def-NCCU Baldwin, Goorjian face off anew as Ateneo takes on Bay Area in tune-up ADMU Basketball EASL News  - philippine sports news

Ateneo, meanwhile, is coming off a three-game sweep of the inaugural World University Basketball Series in Tokyo.

Kai Ballungay emerged as the leader of the squad while Paul Garcia, Dave Ildefonso, and Geo Chiu provided support.

Expected to return to the Blue Eagles for the game is Angelo Kouame, who suffered a partial ACL tear back in July.

Bay Area has had two tune-ups in Manila, beating Blackwater twice.
