Finals hero Isaac Go says entire Ateneo team is ‘clutch’

Isaac Go has displayed many attributes that make him not just a good basketball player, but also as a better human being.

And one of those is his humility.

“I’m just lucky to get an opportunity to play for Ateneo,” said Go after producing another one of his late-game heroics in the Blue Eagles’ 88-86 title-clincher over De La Salle in the UAAP Season 80 men’s basketball finals Sunday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Go sunk the dagger three with 24.7 seconds left in the game that gave Ateneo the 85-80 lead, making the play his fourth clutch moment in the playoffs of the UAAP.

His first two came in the Final Four in their 88-84 win over Far Eastern University when he sent the game to overtime with a three-pointer and the other one was an improbable kneeling shot in the extra frame.

The third was in the first game of the championship round when he converted on a three-point play that closed out Ateneo’s 76-70 victory.
