UAAP 70 champs

They’re back and they’re number one.

Congratulations to the DLSU Green Archers for winning the UAAP 70 senior men’s basketball championship!

I was disappointed with UE’s performance. What happened to them? I was expecting a close and exciting fight. Well, 14-0 is nothing if you won’t win the championship right?

Anyway, congrats again to the Archers! They’re back.

Best in assist – Japs Cuan (UST)

Defensive player – Edwin Asoro (NU)

Mythical 5:

Point guard       – Jv casio (DLSU)

It was a great season. Proves that power and confidence without passion can’t win you the gold. I was really disappointed with the game. Sigh.

Anyway. Can’t wait for next year. and of course, PBA starts soon!!

Until then, I’m on blog leave.

Back to work!!

UAAP team standings (as of 090207); Final four predictions

UE       12-0                FEU     6-6

DLSU    9-3                 NU       4-7

ADMU   7-4                 ADU     1-10

UST       7-5                 UP       0-11

The Warriors still secure the top spot of the final four as they defeat the Tamaraws 79-72, hoping to for a sweep as the end of round 2 comes closer.

The Archers, following closely behind in the second spot, slammed the Bulldogs 78-64.

On the other hand, Ateneo managed to soar into the top as they fortify their position into the final four with back-to-back victories over UST and AdU.

Though they lost to the Eagles, the Tigers managed to get back as they overpowered the winless Maroons 77-61. Meanwhile, FEU still proves to be a contender for a final four spot.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

There are only a few games left guys and the final four will finally be revealed. Will your team make it to the FINAL 4?

A few months ago, a week before season 70 started, I predicted the four teams which I think will make it to the top four in the post UAAP season 70 fearless forecast which you can find here.

The forecast was based on the team rosters and their standings on the previous season. Also included in the post are my top five players.

I’ll post it here it again, just to recap. And I’ll also add who I think deserves the Rookie of the Year award.

Again these are MY opinions or predictions, it doesn’t necessarily mean that this will happen or what, I might be wrong yes (sorry, I just have to say it coz there are people who keeps on posting weird comments).

UAAP Final Four (in no particular order):

1.      UST Growling Tigers

2.      DLSU Green Archers

3.      ADMU Blue Eagles

4.      UE Red Warriors

Top five players:

1.      Jervy Cruz – UST (the guy who truly deserves to win the MVP award)

2.      Woody Co – UP

3.      Jai Reyes – ADMU

4.      Jv Casio – DLSU

5.      Marcy Arellano – UE

My Rookie of the year prediction:

Kashim Mirza (UST) – if you’ve seen him play, then I guess I don’t have to explain further.

or

Mike Gamboa (UP) – the next Marvin Cruz, the boy’s got great potential.

UAAP games cancelled

Thanks to Typhoon ‘Egay’, the UAAP board decided to cancel the UAAP games today, August 16.

 

For the senior men’s basketball, the supposed to be matches for the day were defending champions UST Growling Tigers to face the winless UP Fighting Maroons while the NU Bulldogs against the DLSU Green Archers, with the latter hoping to get a comeback after their recent lost.

 

Jv Casio was injured during the Archers match against the Tigers where they lost 73-81. I’m not sure if we will see him in action but his absence, if he still hasn’t fully recovered, will be crucial for the Archers.

 

DLSU is tied with UST and FEU in second place. UE on the other hand is still invincible with 8 straight wins while it is the opposite for the young team of UP still at the bottom of the tally board.

 

Meanwhile the Eagles, who suffered three consecutive loses against the Warriors, Tigers and Tamaraws, is tied with the Bulldogs with a 4-4 standing.
