December 9 - Friday

The Lion Is Not King
[Ateneo Outrebounds San Beda 37 to 21]

December 9, Friday
Arena, San Juan

[Eagles - 76     Lions - 63]

Greg Slaughter [above] along with Nico Salva [below] combine to haul down
a total of 16 boards, only 5 shy of the Bedans game total of 21.
Slaughter topscores with 20.

Kiefer Ravena nets 18 markers.

Salva follows suit with 17 of his own.

Justin Chua puts in 6 points.
Here, he intimidates Bedan Baser Amer.

 Tonito "Zags" Gonzaga escapes with 5 points.

Lion-heart Jessmar Villahermosa challenges the Eagles with 
21 points and 4 assists of his own.
 [above and below]

 - but by and large [pun intended], Lim's Lions are not able 
to solve the problem that is Greg Slaughter.

As far as the Red Lions are concerned, offensively, Greg is headache, defensively, he is a nightmare - the boys from Mendiola can't seem to get their offensive rythm going while the Katipuneros in Blue and White find a way to get good looks more often than not.  Ateneo hits 59% while San Beda manages only 42% from the field

- Hex Man -
Michole Solera hands off to Baser Amer as the Lions try to get
 something good going, while Norman Black [in the background]
appears to be putting a hex on Amer.

- Off To The Races -
Justin Chua is a step ahead of anyone as the Eagles eye to start a break.

- Rebound ! -

- Never Give Up On The Ball -

 - Salva vs Solera -

Kirk vs Rome
[2 photos]

 Roaring Red Lion Rome de la Rosa converts on 6 of his 8
2-point field goal attempts.  He scores 2 free throws to total 14 in the game.
And like Villahermosa, dishes out 4 assists.

- - - In the early part of the match - - -

 Even with the absence of Garvo Lanete, Black and his Boys in Blue know that the NCAA Champion Red Lions are still very much capable of beating them.

Some anxious moments here:

In the end the Blue & White soars to victory.

 - Salva's Slam - Signed, Sealed, Delivered -

 - Happy Fan -

- Happy Man -
Greg  flashes a great big smile while being interviewed by

- Blue-teed Beaut Bea Coronel -

Who's next for the Blue Eagles ? - the deadly Golden Stags,
who have twice-to-beat advantage.
