As if that wasn’t sufficient to ship a message to the remainder of the sphere that everybody is just about taking part in for second place, College of the Philippines (UP), maybe the one workforce that may match Ateneo’s expertise depth, came upon how troublesome it’s to remain in keeping with the Eagles.

We’re speaking throughout the gamers, mentally we have to come to the sport with a killer intuition. I feel at this time, we truly confirmed a little bit little bit of that. I feel transferring ahead, it’ll simply maintain going up and up.”

“I feel that’s a grand thought to have and I would love for that to be true,” mentioned Baldwin after their blowout win. “However I feel that we’ll solely know whether or not that’s true or not if we observe it up with different video games the place the gamers actually maintain their shoulders to the grindstone and maintain working laborious proper all through the sport and stick collectively and work with each other.”

Little victories

And as catching up with Ateneo has develop into an not possible activity, a minimum of for the classification spherical, colleges should look to have a good time no matter victories they’ll handle.
