Blue Eaglets go all-out vs Bullpups to finish off season sweep

Kai Sotto and the rest of Ateneo are knocking on the door of something not even the likes of Enrico Villanueva and Kiefer Ravena didn't accomplish for their school
Game on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre
4:00 PM – NU vs Ateneo
Ateneo de Manila High School is on the verge of history.
The Blue Eaglets are nothing but determined to take that final step on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre when they wage war against still dangerous Nazareth School of National University.
Yet another win, what would be their 16th in a row, will wrap up for Ateneo a clean sweep of the entire 80th Season of the UAAP Juniors Basketball Tournament.
That would make the Blue Eaglets only the second squad to do so in the Juniors in the Final Four era.
Towering teen Kai Sotto, court general SJ Belangel, and versatile wing Dave Ildefonso will again be at the forefront of the Katipunan attack which will be center stage anew starting at 4:00 PM. All of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
Ateneo is hoping for an exact repeat of its Game 1 win.
Of course, the Bullpups won’t be giving that away that easily and will go all-out to extend the championship series to a do-or-die Game 3.
Without a doubt, Rhayyan Amsali, Terrence Fortea, and Migs Oczon will give their all to prevent history from happening.
