The Ateneo Blue Eagles' electrifying run in the 40th William Jones Cup has ended, but they did not forget to thank their fans for their support.

 

Thank you for all your support 💙 One Big Fight para sa bayan! 🇵🇭 #Puso

Ateneo's 5-3 win-loss slate may not entirely show it, but the Blue Eagles stood tall as the first-ever collegiate squad to represent the Philippines in the tournament.

The reigning UAAP champs fell to Iran yesterday, 70-63 to settle for fourth place.

From Ravena's dazzling plays, to Matt Nieto's unforgettable game-winning three against the national team of  Taiwan, Ateneo's gallant stand against more experienced national and club teams was a sight to see for every Pinoy hoops fan.
