UAAP season 70 fearless forecast

Only a few days to go and we’ll get to see college sports at its best – whoo bias. Lol.

UAAP season 70!!!

Last season the UST Growling Tigers got a Cinderella finish by finally capturing the senior men’s basketball championship after a 10 year title draught. Aside from that, UST was also the overall UAAP champion for the nth time and the Salinggawi Dance Troupe won the cheer dance competition for five consecutive years. Super Cool. What a great way to graduate and exit the school with those bragging rights eh? Sorry, just reliving the great past. Hehe.

 The aftermath of UST-Ateneo game 3

So yeah, here are my senior men’s basketball final four teams:

1. UST Growling Tigers – the team is pretty much the same and I assume that they have a great drive and spirit to defend the title this season.

The biggest lost of the team will be the absence of Jojo Duncil, the season 69 finals MVP. Why is he leaving? There are some issues regarding his eligibility to join this season because of his age, but that was cleared a few days ago. But then again, he decided to drop his supposedly last UAAP year and has his eyes set for the PBA draft in next month (same thing with UP’s Marvin Cruz and AdU’s Ken Bono).

On the other hand, the team still has Jervy Cruz, who is obviously the main man of the Tigers. Plus there’s Cuan, Ababou and Espiritu. So nevertheless the group is still intact.So they will be pressured, I just hope they can handle it.

2. DLSU Green Archers – they were suspended last season so they probably want to redeem the name of the school. The team has always been a strong contender anyway. And yeah I’ve always been an Archer fan. They still have good players like Jv Casio and Ty Tang (not sure if they will play, but if they will getting the Archers to the finals wouldn’t be a problem. Lol).

3. Ateneo Blue Eagles – Like the archers, this team was always part of the final four. But without Kramer, Escalona and Intal… I don’t know. Not sure if Tiu will still play. Nuff said.

4. UE Red Warriors – I’m quite impressed with this team actually. They have a solid defense plus a number of great players. I’d go for the UP Fighting Maroons but the team is still young, and the fact that Marvin Cruz will not play this season, that would cost them big time. I don’t know about Nestor David though, but if he will play I don’t think he can lead the team to the finals.

My top 5 players:

1. Jervy Cruz (UST)
2. Woody Co (UP)
3. Jai Reyes (ADMU)
4. JV Casio (DLSU)
5. Bonbon Custodio (UE)
** sorry, he will not play this season so I’ll put Marcy Arellano instead.

  2. allan on

    bro, no offense meant, i don’t think david (up) and custodio (ue) are playing this season.

  3. Saisho on

    @ allan: yeah, thanks. I already included the custodio correction in my post yesterday, but hey, i appreciate it really.

    Oh I’d put Marcy Arellano in the no.5 slot instead.

    GO USTE! GO USTE! GO USTE! GO! GO! GO! haha:P

    if the UST Tigers defeated the strongest team last season, which was the ADMU Blue Eagles, why wonder kung matalo yung iba? The Ateneo accepted their defeat, why others wouldn’t? Uhh, just askingü

    but yeah, if they made it last season, there’s no doubt that they can still make it this year –ng walang daya. *wink* db? after all, cruz, ababou, taylor, cuan and the other great players are still there. 🙂

    Well, look at the current standings. From there make a LOGICAL guess..

  12. Saisho on

    @ Josh: well thanks for checking out my blog. that’s why it’s called fearless forecast right? guessing who will make it to the final four before the season even started.

    and don’t worry, if you check my other post it includes the team standings. and again, that’s why this certain post is a ‘fearless forecast’ right.

    I’m a journalist so I know what i’m doing or posting.

    thanks for the “logical” comment. i’m sorry, logical isn’t even the right word.

    cool.

  13. nix on

    Oh, bitterness.

    it’s funny how bitter people use Bonbon’s name just to get others’ attention. Really, I could not believe that after almost a year, meron pa din magclaim that he was paid. Excuse me, Tigers won over the Eagles, who were way better than *ehem* —what’s the name of that school again? Haha. Whatever.

    And yeah, Josh, I also think that “logical” isn’t the right term. Are you from…what’s that school again?? Hahaha. Maybe you have to think first before you say anything — better yet, READ. Iba ang fearless forecast sa nangyayari NGAYON. And the team standings would still change. Like, if you know what I mean. …Got it? I really hope so.

    How pathetic you guys can be? –Ok, you got our attention. Happy now?
