“Binibigay ko credit sa players kasi sila naman nagtatrabaho sa practice. ‘Yun ang gusto namin — makakuha ng twice-to-beat. Hindi mo rin pwede biruin ang Ateneo, UST, Adamson eh, kasi malakas din sila,” said FEU coach Allan Albano after his team improve to 10-1.

Meanwhile, Ateneo High School grabbed a piece of the third spot after squeaking a 79-74 victory over University of Santo Tomas.

Down by four, Rojan Montemayor’s putback off a Jethro Escoto missed triple put UST within two, 76-74, with 19.2 seconds remaining. They then fouled Blue Eaglet Lebron Lopez, who split his charities.

In the ensuing play, with a chance to knot the game, the Tiger Cubs went to Escoto on the left-wing. He fired a trey, but airballed. Lopez then grabbed the board and made the insurance freebies.
