Perasol says hard-fought Game 1 showed UP ‘can beat’ Ateneo

first_imgView comments Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Still it was a lesson Bo Perasol and the rest of the Fighting Maroons have to learn in order to beat Ateneo—a team that owns nine titles in the UAAP.“It’s a lesson we have to learn and we need to understand also that if we had done this sort of performance we could probably give them [the Blue Eagles] a tougher game and we could probably have won,” said Perasol.Still, it can be considered as a moral booster for the Fighting Maroons who were able to gut it out with Ateneo until the final moments since it was a common knowledge that the Blue Eagles had supreme advantages over UP.Ateneo represented the Philippines in the last Jones Cup and topped the Season 81 ladder with a 12-2 record while UP struggled in the early part of the competition, even going 3-5 in its first eight games.There’s also the disparity in terms of titles with Ateneo owning nine and UP with two—the first one in 1939 and the second one in 1986.ADVERTISEMENT Like Adonis Creed going toe to toe with Ricky Conlan in the latter rounds of their fictional fight, everything was going right for the Fighting Maroons against the defending champion Blue Eagles.And just like how Conlan emerged with a decision victory in the end, the Blue Eagles were able to go out with the 88-79 victory.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissThe only difference was the way it ended with Creed landing the final punch of the fight that knocked down Conlan, it was Ateneo’s Matt Nieto who got to deliver the final haymaker.Nieto capped off Ateneo’s 14-2 run late in the game to take an 87-73 lead with 2:07 left to play, a disappointing finish to an otherwise inspirational run the Fighting Maroons gave throughout the contest.

With a little tweaking and probably a little rest my team could give Ateneo its money’s worth.
