July 17, Sunday
I managed to watch the First Half of the Ateneo Lady Eagles vs UST Lady Tigresses match last Sunday at the Blue Eagle Gym before rushing to the Araneta Coliseum to finish the Second Half of the NU-UP Men's game. Both the Ateneo and UST Women's Team won their opening matches. UST had beaten the Defending Champion Lady Falcons while Ateneo had triumphed over NU so I was looking forward to a close match. Unfortunately, for the Lady Eagles, they were outhustled and intimidated by the tough Tigress defense.
Juvelyn scoring one of her four 2-pt. field goals.
Her 2-pt. field goal percentage was a low 28% but she hit three out of five 3-pt. attempts. She grabbed 7 boards and dished out 3 assists.
Rookie Danica Jose was renderred scoreless [6 missed attempts] by the swarming UST defense.
Samantha Ong, the heroine in the Lady Eagles' Game 1 comeback triumph over NU last July 13, again topscored for Ateneo, but it simply wasn't enough to beat UST. Ong was the only Atenean with double figures [13 pts.].
Three Tigresses, Andaya, Laud, and Galicia [who also got 15 boards] combined for 42 points [all three Tigresses scored double figures].
