IN PHOTOS: Ateneo vs UST – UAAP Season 82, 2nd round
MANILA, Philippines – Ateneo nipped University of Santo Tomas, 66-52, in a battle of attrition to continue its unbeaten run in the UAAP Season 82 men's basketball tournament on Saturday, October 5 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Unlike in their first-round meeting where the Blue Eagles escaped the Tigers by a whisker, 71-70, the defending champions made sure to control the game all the way.
Defense dictated the tempo in the low-scoring affair which saw Ateneo hold the league's top offensive team UST – which is averaging 81 points per game – to a season-low 52-point production in a tough 28% field goal shooting.
