We won!

The Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles beat the De La Salle Green Archers 62–51 and are the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Season 71 men's basketball champions! Woohoo!!! This is the entrance to the Blue Eagle Gym of the Ateneo de Manila University where a projection screen was set up for those who couldn't watch the game at the Araneta Coliseum because they couldn't get tickets or had classes in the afternoon. A tarpaulin poster of the boys has been hanging there the entire season. From left to right: 17 Chris Tiu, 5 Jai Reyes, 12 Kirk Long, 13 Ryan Buenafe, 19 Rabeh Al-Hussaini, 7 Nonoy Baclao, 4 Yuri Escueta, 10 Jobe Nkemakolam, 20 Tonino Gonzaga, 11 Eric Salamat, 8 Raymond Austria, 14 Nico Salva, 16 Mike Baldos, 15 Vince Burke, 6 Christopher Sumalinog, 18 Justin Chua. Congratulations, boys! We are so proud of you!
