UAAP 81 Finals By The Numbers: The Thirdy Show
Paul Lintag on Dec 08, 2018 03:45 PM
Ateneo scored 187 points in the UAAP Finals. Thirdy Ravena scored or assisted in 95 of them.
Today would have been Game 3 of the UAAP Season 81 men's basketball Finals.
Game 3 of the Battle of Katipunan.
But oh well, blame the Blue Eagles of Ateneo for ending the series rather early.
Maybe they just wanted to proclaim "This Is Atin" already. Or is it One Big Fight? Anyway, the Blue Eagles are still champions and it appears that Ateneo has another dysnasty on the way.
But before all of that, one final By the Numbers for this season because it was a good one for sure.
