for the first time in six seasons, the FEU Tamaraws have failed to reach the Final Four. However, they have ended their season on a high note as they demolished the UE Warriors in four sets 25-17, 25-22, 22-25, 25-16 at the San Juan Arena.
The FEU Tamaraws displayed their signature balanced attack with five players scoring eight points or more. Although they are known to be undersized team, FEU’s supreme athleticism allows them to keep up with taller opponents, as they out-spiked the Warriors 49-35. Open spiker Jeric Gacutan and middle blocker Greg Dolor paced the Tams with 14 points apiece while Joel Cayaban dished out 13 markers. Joshua Barrica and Lucky Margate finished off FEU’s flurry with eight points each.
UE rookie sensation, Edward Camposano, finished the season off leading his team in scoring in every match as he scored 17 points to spearhead his teams attack but was unable to keep his team afloat as FEU had just way too many weapons to throw at the Warriors.
Playing in his final UAAP game, UE team captain Ace Magdani put in a solid 10 points with five blocks. Magdani started the season off strong offensively but was hampered by an ankle injury suffered late in the first round.
FEU finishes their UAAP season in fifth place with 6-8 record while the Warriors finish the season without a win.
