Eagles try to stretch unbeaten run; Archers vow rebound

Flashing improved performances from last year, Thirdy Ravena and Chiz Ike have gotten their share of the spotlight in Ateneo’s unbeaten run in UAAP Season 80, but there’s a slew of unheralded players who equally deserve the credit in the Blue Eagles’ five-game winning streak.

“It’s a luxury that we have very good point guards, and it’s also a luxury that these guys have very good attitudes,” said Eagles assistant coach Sandy Arespacochaga.

“There’s no jealousy and that’s actually a big thing for a team, so we’re also lucky with the attitude of our guards. Most of our players, they have no problems with sharing the ball and sharing the limelight.”

Hoping to continue to draw fine games from playmakers like Matt Nieto, the Eagles face another tough task on Saturday as the Eagles tangle with a National U team known for its suffocating press at Smart Araneta Coliseum.
