Playing at the UAAP Season 75 Goodwill Games
With less than 30 seconds to go and with only 3 points lead, the jam packed MOA Arena is filled with cheers and jeers as the opponent tried its last ditch with a shot from the rainbow territory. A whistle from the referee after they missed from the three, as the loud drumbeats adds intensity to the anger of the coach of the other university, the game ended at 78 – 83.
My favorite team Ateneo grabs the first game with a five point lead in the best of three series against UST. The Stats/Table team starts to prepare for the game versus the NU Bullies as the crowd of the MOA was being cleared.
In our game, NU took a big lead early in the opening half but the Stats/Table persisted and tied the game at 40 then turn the tide at 44 – 40 before the closing of the 1st half. Adamson’s Coach Leo Austria, playing for NU finished it with 4 of his 18 points from the triple to take back the lead at 47 – 44. The rest of the second half was a one sided game after NU bullied the Stats/Table by leading as much as 20 points. Jens Knuttel, playing for the Stats/Table made a triple double of 28 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in the NU 93, Stats/Table 80 final salvo. Our next game will be on August 11, 2012 against UAAP Press Corps at the Smart Araneta Coliseum after the ADMU vs UST Game 2 of the best of 3 to be followed by the ABS-CBN vs NU Championship match.
After the game, everyone enjoyed the burger meal from Ma’am Jen and Ma’am Andy while reviewing the photos taken by Sir JR Contreras. Here are some of the photos from Sir JR.
