Matt Nieto reaping rewards of hardwork over off season

Matt Nieto just went from twin brother to just about anything for Ateneo.

Joining the team in 2015 together his twin brother Mike, Matt struggled to find his form in the first two seasons with the Blue Eagles as he averaged just 4.4 points as an on-and-off rotation player.

Season 78 eventually saw Matt develop into his own as he grew into one of Ateneo’s main offensive threats.

In Season 80, Matt has more than doubled his career scoring average to 10.8 points to become Ateneo’s leading scorer behind Thirdy Ravena, who averages 17.4 a game.

“I’m just doing my job, I’m just finding open lanes, looking for my teammates, and it’s just a bonus that I can make my shots,” said Nieto Wednesday after the Blue Eagles’ 94-84 win over University of Santo Tomas.
