Blue Eagles trample Generals for 7-0 slate
Ateneo de Manila University cruised past Emilio Aguinaldo College for its seventh straight win in as many outings.

Ateneo de Manila University clobbered a helpless Emilio Aguinaldo College side, 108-44, Monday to keep its perfect record intact in Group A of the 12th FilOil Flying V Preseason Cup at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

All of the 14 players in roster saw action and each one chipped in on offense with Matt Nieto leading the way with 14 points while Jolo Mendoza scored 13 for the Blue Eagles, which easily manhandled the Generals for their seventh win in as many games to climb at the top spot.

The Katipunan-based squad displayed their fluid game on both sides of the court in a basketball clinic that saw Ateneo dish out 30 assists and pluck 44 rebounds while hitting 36 of their 61 field goals.

Adrian Wong and Mike Nieto finished with 10 each for the Blue Eagles, which sent EAC reeling to its sixth loss in as many outings.

In the other Group A match, University of Perpetual Help snapped a five-game skid with a breakthrough 95-75 victory over University of the East.

Luke Sese showed the way for the Altas with 25 points while Edgar Charcos had 15 markers and eight assists.

The Red Warriors slid to 3-5 mark.    

Meanwhile, Bradey Bienes scored 13 points to lead Far Eastern University past San Sebastian College, 78-66, in Group B action.

The Tamaraws improved to 6-1 slate for the solo top spot while the Stags absorbed their fifth loss in eight outings.
