* [UAAP 73] DLSU beats ADMU after 2 years

One of the most awaited basketball event here in the Philippines is a La Salle and Ateneo game in the UAAP. July 24, 2010 is the date for the first meet up between the two schools. DLSU lost the last 6 games againts Ateneo for the last 2 years and finally last Saturday DLSU ended the streak and defeated the Blue Eagles with a great comeback 66-63.

DLSU team consist of a new head coach Dindo Pumaren and a bunch of rookies battled the back to back defending champions Ateneo Blue Eagles with Eric Salamat, Kirk Long, Ryan Buenafe and Mico Salva on the team. It was a close game for the first half exchanging baskets between the two teams but Ateneo is still in the driver seat because of the Ryan Buenafe's and one plays. During the last quarter we thought that DLSU is already giving up and key players like Maui Villanueva is struggling in the game, an unexpected hero Sam Marata came along with two triples and a Simon Atkins free throw for the DLSU Green Archers to get the victory against their rival. Sam Marata and Joshua Webb had 12 points followed by team captain Simon Atkins who had 9 points.
