ADMU vs UST (Round 1)

When I arrived Araneta Coliseum about 2 hours before game time, I realized that we were using the same locker room as the one we used in the previous loss against FEU. I settled in a different cubicle so that maybe i won't suffer the same unlucky fate as with FEU. Sometimes we players can get superstitious. After our regular mass presided by Fr. Nemy in the locker room, players were walking out to peek at the NU vs FEU game that was on-going. I constantly reminded them to forget about that game and just focus in on our battle vs UST because i figured that FEU would win anyway. So when we were doing our final stretching in a narrow corridor, I was informed that NU was up by 1 with less than a minute to go. I thought he was playing a joke. Then i heard a roar that was pretty much unexpected in a NU vs FEU duel. I figured it must have been an NU 3-point shot and both UST and ADMU fans were extremely delighted as FEU slipped to 5-2. It was a great relief for us! Now we had a chance to take solo lead after round 1. And we did!

I vowed to the coaches that I will be more aggressive in this game not just in terms of scoring but in creating for my teammates as well. And i won't settle too much on outside shots unless it's really there. At least it paid off, i ended up with 9 rebounds and 7 assists. But it was really the team game that gave us the victory. One disappointing observation is our inability to close out teams when leading by as much as 10 during the early part of the 4th quarter. Same thing happened against FEU. But at least against UST, we were able to regain back the lead after a threatening run which gave them a 3 point advantage midway through the 4th. In the end, it was really our defense which kept us in the lead - extra credit should be given to Nonoy Baclao for his amazing blocks!

Although only scoring two points, he finished with 11 rebounds and 4 blocks (1 each on Allera, Mirza as well as the crucial ones on Ababou and Jervy). He practically stopped the entire UST! Nonoy ended up being best player, and i totally agree with that! Points do not always have to be the basis for being best player. He is truly an example of a 'team player' , knowing his role and getting the job done! Of course, I want to thank the Lord for the victory. But what i truly pray for is that everyone is kept free from any serious injury and that the officiating will be fair in every game! May the best team win.


P.S. I have to admit that we might have benefited a little more than UST in some 50-50 calls that could have gone either way. And thank you Tito Philip Sison for the photos.

Good job Chris and to the rest of the team! I am delighted that you guys took the loss against FEU as a motivation to play better. :o)


Nette said...

Congrats again!

Godspeed for the Blue eagles!

BlueSoul said...

Thought I'd share my feedback on the game...

Great game by the Blue Eagles! Awesome game by Nonoy Baclao - he should be named Defensive Player of the year! Also loved his "nakaw shot" from Jai ... we should have more of that.

Also, excellent assist in the final few minutes of the game! That was really our winning break, allowing Jai to make that uncontested 3-pt shot! Thank you for that VERY SMART play, Captain!

I'm also very happy with the way Ryan has played against the Tigers. That's the way to go! Use his upper body strength and go to the paint! He shouldn't settle for those 3s, no matter how open he is.

Rabeh is our BIG MAN! Loved that drive to the basket with 5 seconds left in the 2nd q. That was simply fantastic!

I'm waiting for Nico's break-out game..and maybe Jobe can learn a thing or two from his big buddies Nonoy and Rabeh? :)

You guys made our day, but then again, WIN OR LOSE, Go Ateneo pa din!

Good luck against the Tams in the 2nd round!

bluesoul said...


I do not agree with the 2nd travelling call on Ryan... that was bad officiating! But then again, NABRO is not known to be good at that...

karlandrew said...

congratulations for the win! it was raining but we still watched....

nix14 said...

hey! i just wanna say congrats again 4 your win against ust even though i did it yesterday on your other entry. :) i'm just really happy that you won. haha. just keep on believing to God and always do your best! take care and good luck again :)

Philip said...

Good team game for you guys. This is just my observation but hopefully you would be able to share this with your team mates.

1. Rabeh should stop shooting those jump shots. He may have a shot but he is more effective inside (I think no one can stop him there).

2. Ryan Buenafe should mature. I mean he should not be tempted to take those outside shots. He may make those during your practice but it's totally a different ballgame when you have an opponent. He should continue to attack the defense - this is his specialty and i believe he would be fish a lot of fouls.

3. Consistency on the outside shooting. Your opponents in the 2nd round may give you different looks in terms of their zone defense. It is imperative that Jai Reyes and your shooters need to make those outside shots as there will be games that you'll find it hard to score inside.

4. All of you should remain healthy. You'll win the championship this season as long you guys are healthy and at the same time cut on your turn overs. Turn overs means less chances of getting points.

Anna said...

Amen. Happy that we pulled off a win and kept injury-free.
Loved the hustle you showed on the court. I think your teammates take their cue from you.
No comment nalang on the refs. ;-) Kulang pa yan after ALL the dubiousness of the past games, ay years pala. hehe.
You guys are definitely on track to reach the Final 4. OBF!!

_gLy_ said...

Congratulations for winning the game against UST…
Hope to see you in person someday… C=
God bLess you and the whole team in your incoming games…
Hope this year ATENEO will be the champion…
Take care always especially in every game… C=

nina said...

hi chris!

it was my first time to watch a game live yesterday and it was sooo worth it! we were cheering like mad whenever ateneo would make a shot even if we weren't from ateneo ourselves. congrats on getting the top spot after round 1! hope the streak continues! good luck and God bless for the next games! OBF!

blue eagle at heart,

Anonymous said...

Congratulations and good luck in round two. :) I believe that Ateneo deserves to win the championship! More power to you guys. Take care.

Anonymous said...

Congrats! You guys can win the championship, just stay focused. I also agree with all the comments made by "philip", above.

As our defense remains priority, I wish you guys more luck in your outside shooting.We are doing good in under-the-basket drives and stabs.

Good work you did in keeping the plays coherent, as well as your more daring drives and rebounds.

Congrats in landing #3 in the MVP top ten.As the second round progresses, I really pray either you or Hussaini win the coveted award.

God bless you and the Team. Stay healthy and injury-free.

Bea said...

Hey Chris!
How did you save those pictures from Fabilioh? My brother and dad have a picture there and we want to save it. Haha
By the way, Congratulations! Great assist to Jai! ONE BIG FIGHT! :)

jonessa said...

hi Chris! congrats on the win and for taking the lead again. i hope the wins just keep pouring in. i have to say though that Ateneo is really missing Salamat...the intensity that he brings to the team is really missed, and i think that's one of the reasons that for the past two games, Ateneo failed to maintain the big leads. i hope he gets better, and i also pray for no more injuries for the team.

oh and btw, congrats for the new show in GMA...i just saw the ad on tv. =)

cleng said...


happy na ko kasi your team won!!!

Go Blue Eagles keep it up!

sherwin said...

actually, yesterday game for me is your best game so far.. because you didn't settle much for 3s and you show a lot in different areas of the game(9 rebs and 7 ast). almost a double-double performance from a guard position..

well as i look on your averages dis 1st round and heres what i got (I got it from the internet and I hope its correct)..
14 points/game,
6-30 3 pt area (20%),
24-46 2 pt area (52%)
32-39 FT (82%)
3.1 asts/game
1 stl/game
1 error/game

quite good and an all around performance especially having 6 rebs per game from a guard is quite impressive but to tell you the truth (and sorry for this opinion), i was shock in your 3 pt percentage.. 20% from a clutch shooter who buried a lot of heartbreaking 3s in ADMU-DLSU game.. i think your well guarded ryt now.. and the good news in that is your not settling in 3pt shot, but your trying ryt now to be aggressive and attacking the basket.. so good luck and hope to see a lot of improvement in that statistics..

for ADMU team, i'm happy ryt now that you're the # 1 in the UAAP dis season.. you might not have the best athletic team this season ( i think FEU and DLSU) but ADMU have the highest Basketball IQ in dis season and the second is million miles away.. so hope that you make in the championship and hope that nobody gets injure..(most of the team are plaguing with injuries)

so see you in Aug 9, vs FEU ( am i ryt?) i know you will avenge your only loss in the 1st round...

Jhen-17- said...


You really deserve it.,
I've watched the whole game,and i can say that it was one of the most exciting games for the 71st season as of now...Watching you,blue eagles, play really make me happy and will always do..
What you have shown against UST was undeniably an "A".

Good Luck to your next games!!!
You and your fellow eagles will always be in my prayers.



katrina mae said...

congratulations!! good game... your team really is the best defensive team.. but hopefully come second round you will be a complete team.. but the team must not be toocomplaisant becuase their is still 7 more games in the elimination and the teams are stronger in the next round... goodluck to all!!! i wish that each member would grow and play all out all the way..

francine17 said...

I enjoyed the game. For the last few minutes, it was a bit nerve-wracking. Good pass to Jai Reyes. It was the turning point of the game.

It was a low-scoring game. But the points you nail are well earned after the tight defense of the UST.

Hope you will maintain your team standing for the 2nd round. Good Luck and God Bless!

P.S. Although I'm from Davao, I promised myself to watch your game if ever the Blue Eagles will have a shot in the Finals! Go Ateneo. I'll keep my fingers crossed! :)

christina said...

im just happy to see everybody working hard. you surely learned so much from the previous loss. im also happy to see eric salamat in good shape. good luck on round 2!

God Bless everyone.

I truly admired your game yesterday. It's a sweet victory on your part after you had a 3 point deficit in the last few minutes. I agree that Nonoy Baclao deserves to be the best player of the game although he only had 2 points. COntinue to fight blue eagles till the end of this season. Good luck. May God be always with you. Take care dude!!! You're the man!!!!!!!!

Hi chris!
Congrats to you and the whole team for winning the game against UST. :D
The highlight of the game for me was your assist to Jai that made him throw a 3-pointer. I so love that!! And I know you were quite happy that he delivered well. hehe. You guys looked so cute with the chest-bumping action. haha. And yey for Ateneo for taking the no. 1 spot~ Good luck on the game on Saturday~ We'll be there!


sharleein said...

hi chris! just wanna say congrats! :)) i was there too at araneta coliseum. you're right that ateneo and ust fans were happy that feu lost because their record became 5-2. good luck on your next game! btw, who's your next opponent? :D

Joe said...

Isn't it funny that almost after every game there's a commentary on the refereeing? What does it say bout the uaap? The refs should be crowned champions..... I think when you win, its easier to say the refs called a good game.

Go ateneo!

val said...

Guilty! I was cheering for NU. I came in the coliseum with only around a minute left in that game, and I was soooo surprised that NU was winning. Talk about an upset. ;)

Congrats on the win! I'm glad you guys are first in the standings again. Hope you will be able to sustain that place. Remember that if you're on top, the only place left to go is down.

Work hard! Show everyone what you and your team is made of.

God bless!!

congratz! i was there and i really enjoyed the game! we ended round 1 at number 1!!! it doesn't guarantee anything though but it was a big morale booster! hope you'll do better in round 2 and finals (?).. well, you said in chalk that you're going to be the champions this year, i'm not pressuring you but i expect you'll be really the champions this year! :)

i cried when you lost to FEU..i was hoping you'll make crucial shots again for us to win.. i miss your game-winning clutch plays i must say! hope to see them again soon!

you said, may the best team win.. if that's the case, then ateneo blue eagles should!!

Anonymous said...

Fans can be as superstitious as players - after last Thursday I stopped wearing the "lucky flipflops" I've been wearing to Ateneo games since the Nike Summer League semis against La Salle. I also switch seats with people and have other little pregame rituals. I'm sure it sounds peculiar to people who aren't hardcore fans, but those like me will try anything to help our team to victory!

Anyway, congratulations to you, Chris, and the rest of the team :) The NABRO winds were indeed blowing a bit strangely last Sunday, but that's better than the usual direction and hey, you guys won legitimately.

I'm glad my last Ateneo game of the year was a great one. This is probably more than you need to know about me, but I'm leaving this weekend to start grad school in the US and I'm going to miss watching the Blue Eagles a lot! (I don't know if you ever heard me yelling during the summer tournaments, but I was one of those who watched the off-season games in FEU, San Beda and God knows where else. Good times!)

Good luck on your last season, Chris (and to Yuri, too) - I'm praying it pays off after all the effort you've poured in over the years :) Keep posting!

Good day to you Chris!! It is very nice of you to admit that some of the calls made by the referees where kind of unfair for the UST basketball team. Eventhough I was watching only from upperbox B, I witnessed that some of the calls made by them were unfair. I personally think that there were fouls that should have been called to Ateneo. I am not being biased to UST just because I'm one of them but I am a basketball fanatic. I'm fully aware of the rules and regulations in basketball and some of the fans of UST were disappointed with what happened. But I don't blame Ateneo for any of the calls made because I believe that you guys play fair and I admit that I am one of your biggest fans. I actually did cheer for you even if I'm with the Thomasian community.

I hope I didn't offend you with this comment. I'm just sharing my views about the game.

Anyway, Congratulations for winning. I wish you all the best. I know how much you want to win the championship this Season '71.

Take Care and Godbless!!:)

Helene said...


is there such word as awed?

oh no, I can't believe what I saw last Sunday.It was a different Chris Tiu.Mr nice guy no more.

hmm, I was a bit worried during the first 2 quarters of the game because there were too many turnovers and I should say, too many uncontested shots made by UST.No defense.

Just the same, I hope you'll improve more on questions about the offense,you guys are fair but not excellent.Grabee si kuya Nonoy, hahaha we used to tease him capre coz he was the tallest in their team in our ligas (enough of old memories).

regarding those calls, believe me, your team took the advantage through the free throws you shot.

I personally would want to congratulate you for being aggressive in all aspect of the game.But I wish to see you improve in your defense.

Can't wait for your game on Saturday. :) One Big Fight!

Hello Chris!!

Congrats congrats congrats!! Good job on the defense, I hope that you guys keep it up taken that part 2 of the game isn't that far away. Hehehe.

Best of luck to all of you! I hope that Jai will keep his game up. Thanks to his shots, we got the lead! :) and so to Nonoy Baclao who is forever improving. I hope he will keep it up us well.

I am glad to see teamwork. I hope though that you guys remember to rebound and defense, defense, defense! Keep it up Ateneo!

Win or lose, it's the school we choose! :D

i love the way you play...though you didn't scored much but the way you directed your game and your aggressiveness kept your team spirit..of course your teammates were all great.they did their part well...

what more can i say?'re the BEST team of the season....


stay fit!(i know you are...*)

glaiza said...

I think as a group you must work harder for outside points... "Bilog ang Bola" we never know what will happen its better if u have strong defense inside at the same time scoring outside... Baclao, Salamat, Reyes, Rabbeh and you of course really work as one continue to work hard. Learn from mistakes before and use it as strength for the upcoming game. Play as one... I hope for your success... Thats my b-day wish also....

glaiza said...

In my opnion you shouuld work harder for outside shots... i really agree two thumbs up with rabeh and nonoy, but as a whole team I think if you will not work harder for shooting... winning could be 50/50. You, Rabeh, baclao, reyes and salamat really work as one. Continue to improve the shooting and th rest are properly done. In rebounds, deffense and etc. the team is doing a great job. Learning from previous mistakes and take it as strength will help the team alot. Gud luck to the team....

I know all along you will beat UST that day.

The Hail Mary crowd was cheering for NU (as we wait for the main game). The over-cheering FEU crowd started cheering BITTER BITTER BITTER! ahahaha After the game, most of the FEU crowd transferred to the UST side to cheer. Who's bitter now?

I just love watching UAAP live!

Congrats Ateneo! (--,)

Hey Chris!

just dropped by to thank you again for doing me that big favor of greeting my bestfriend a happy birthday, and for signing the shirt too. i really thought that i would no longer be able to see you coz you were not in Jsec the whole day..i waited pa naman.. haha. pero it's ok, at least i got to you before you did your interview. the whole thing was really worth it.

my bestfriend wanted to thank you very much. told you she'd love the gifts! she cried when i surprised her with the video and the shirt. haha.. you really made her day!!! so im really really thankful that you were able to give me at least 5 mins of your busy schedule. SUPER THANKS! if you need anything, just tell me..hahahaha.. i'll be glad to help too..

i think we'll watch the ADMU vs UE game, come next next week? i hope that we catch you at the end of the game kasi gusto pa nia ng picture with you.. :) hehe.

and CONGRATULATIONS for winning the game against FEU!

btw, i'm Pau.. sorry, i keep forgetting to introduce myself. haha. thanks again!!!

Good Morning Chris! Nothing much this will be my last. A month ago I've told you that it was my first time to make comments to stuff like this and I made a few more after that, but I got disappointed a huge disappointment so decided I to go back to my old self just reading no vocal reaction if I have I'll just keep it to myself.

If you don't post this I'll understand. But I hope you'll read it at least.

God Bless and Good Luck on all your upcoming games and agendas.

Sorry if I bored you with such a long non-sense comment.

Just remember that: "Patience is a virtue." and "If you are humble, nothing will touch you, neither praise nor disgrace you cause you know what and who you are... Humility is the only virtue that the devil can't imitate..."

My friend told me once that and I quote: "Forgetting the feelings you have for someone is one of the things that could never be easy. After the long times of loving, here you are now, trying to forget but loving in silence..." I know I sound stupid and yet it's embarrassing to state all of this to you but I just wanna share it to you.

Anyways, take care always! As usual don't overworked yourself and take time to rest. Stay healthy.

P.S. I'll stand anonymous this time but your a smart and intelligent guy. I'm sure you'll figure out who I am.

"Kudos" Chris.

angel 17 said...

well, since you haven't posted an entry about your victory over FEU, i'll just post my comment here!=)

congratulations!!!7-1!it could've been 8-0 but it's ok..we need some pain in order to get better! you've learned your lesson and it's better to lose early that to sweep games and lose the most important ones! you guys have proven you can beat not just FEU but all the other teams as well.. hard fought game but you were all great!! kudos to blue eagles! i knew you could make it! we're halfway through the season and i dread the day when you'll be playing your last game =(..but i pray you''' win the crown so it won't be so sad..i hope you'll always play the way you did last saturday, total team effort! please win the championship! i don't wanna shed tears of sadness on your last game..i've been doing that the past 3 seasons..please don't make it 4..=)..i always include you in my prayers!best of luck on the next games! keep winning cause la salle's just breathing down your necks! stay at number 1 all the way!

fly high king eagle tiuperman!!
fly high blue eagles!!\

Chris, careful on the court. Saw how those UST guys pounced on you, not good. And I'm sure there are players from other teams who are like that, so take care.

Jeri said...

Hi Chris! :)
You haven't got any new posts lately ha, busy?

Anyway, congratulations on your second round game with UST!

Thank you for signing the poster I've made for you and the rest of the team! All of you made me happy last night!:)

Actually, sobrang di ko inakala na maaapproach kita and makakausap nang ganun - you're such a humble person! :)
(Ako at yung friend kong guy yung nakasabay mo palabas ng Ultra kagabi...yung parehong may face paint na A! ha ha)

I felt glad nung nakita ko rin ang buong team! Super bait ni Nico, ang kulit kulit ni Nonoy and Jai! Jai even asked where did I get the poster, sabi ko I was the one who made it. The Ateneo Blue Eagles are the coolest persons on earth!!! Woooooh! :)

Good luck on your game this Sunday!:) I won't be able to watch it kasi my field trip kami this weekend.(the third ADMU game that I will miss this season!)

Thank you so much! :)
God Bless you and your team! Saludo ako sa inyong lahat! :)

Lee_Anne said...

I'm really amazed with you, Know Why?? You're a model, an endorser [im really suprised your endorsing volvo cars, it reminds me of edward cullen :">], a host, an SK Chairman, the blue eagles team captain, an ateneo student and yet you still have time to blog for your fans[maybe?]. Woow, How do you manage your time!? You're Incredible! and I adore you for that :) May you Inspire more people like me :))! Yun lang, God Bless :) GO ATENEOO! :)

hi. honestly, i don't know where to start. uhm, obviously, i'm not a blogger. i would like to ask something to you Chris if that's fine with you and please answer my question if you don't mind. do you have a facebook or multiply account? or some of them are just really posers? i'm very curious about it and one more thing, i want you to be my friend. i know that's impossible but.. anyway, if you have time, just answer my question. thanks a lot and in advance. i hope you'll answer my question.

PS: good luck to you and your next game tomorrow with adamson. God bless your team.

-i want to meet you and rabeh. haha.-
