MANILA, Philippines – Ateneo de Manila University center Chibueze Ikeh is the second Blue Eagle to earn Player of the Week honors in the UAAP Season 80 men's basketball tournament.

In his third season for Ateneo, Ikeh has emerged as one of the key cogs of the team, and has been crucial in their 6-0 start to the tournament.
