Ateneo Blue Eagles end series, win back-to-back UAAP crowns

MANILA, Philippines – The Ateneo Blue Eagles denied the UP Fighting Maroons a chance to extend the series, fashioning out a 99-81 rout to annex their second consecutive UAAP men’s basketball title at the Smart Araneta Coliseum Wednesday.

The fancied defending champions banked on the exploits of Thirdy Ravena, who exploded with a career-high 38 points as the Eagles spoiled the Maroons’ bid for an elusive UAAP championship.

Ravena took home the Final MVP plum after averaging 29.5 points, 8 rebounds, 7.5 assists and 2.5 steals in the series.

It was a stirring followup by Ateneo, who drew first blood, 88-79, last Saturday.
