MANILA, Philippines – The Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles have been the best team in the UAAP so far in the Season 80 tournament, compiling a spotless 6-0 record while playing entertaining basketball on both ends of the floor.

De La Salle University center Ben Mbala won't deny that their archrivals have greatly improved since their showdown in the finals last year, but stressed that the Green Archers will be prepared for the Blue Eagles for their first meeting this season.

The defending champions Green Archers and the Blue Eagles clash on Sunday at the Mall of Asia Arena, with the top spot at the end of the first round at stake.

"They're an improved team," Mbala conceded on Wednesday, after torching University of the East for a career-high 39 points on 10-of-12 shooting from the field. "They play better than last year, and they have the best record at 6-0."

"They'll come prepared," he added.
