Hooray for UAAP Final Four weekend!!!!
UAAP Season 80 Final Four weekend sure was interesting to say the least.
Both games had their fair share of intriguing storylines, storylines that could even carry on beyond this season and into the next.
However, those are for a different article and here, we just enjoy numbers, numbers, and oh yes, more numbers.
It's UAAP By the Numbers for a reason. Okay let's just do this.
Total number of points scored in UAAP Season 80 through the first two rounds of play.
For comparison, the total number of points scored in Season 79 was 7,959 points. In Season 78, it was 7,915 points.
Number of UAAP teams that scored 1,000 points or more this season, first since at least 2003.
Defending champion La Salle scored the most points at 1,291 while UP ended up last with 1,041 points.
39 and 12
Number of free throw attempts and number of fouls for La Salle during the Green Archers' Final Four showdown against the Adamson Falcons.
Down by as many as 15, the champs would turn the game around with free throws to take the win and advance to yet another Finals.
5 and 33
Number of free throw attempts and number of fouls for Adamson during the Falcons' Final Four showdown against the Green Archers.
Throughout the game and immediately afterwards, the Adamson staff were fuming mad about the supposed biased officiating that went down in their Final Four loss to La Salle, which was their second in as many seasons.
While those sort of things almost never get proven, the numbers tell quite a telling story. It's up to you how to look at it.
Number of Final Four series this season that will go to sudden death, and it's the same one as last year.
FEU turned the table on Ateneo this weekend as the no. 4 Tamaraws stunned the no. 1 Bue Eagles to force a do-or-die.
The Tams came alive in the second half to hand Ateneo one big L, the Blue Eagles' second straight after winning 13 conseuctive games.
