The first day of the UAAP Season 74 men’s basketball competition started with last year’s finalists repeating over their Season 73 final 4 match-ups. Far Eastern University Tamaraws beat the De la Salle University Green Archers 74-65 while last year’s champs Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles survived the Adamson Falcons 55-51.

FEU was led by Season 73 MVP RR Garcia who topscored with 21 points and big man Aldrech Ramos (16 points 8 rebounds 2 assists 2 steals and 1 blocked shot).  They negated the magnificent performance of the come-backing LA Revilla who led the Archers with 18 points 5 rebounds and 5 assists. No other Green Archer reached double figures in the game.

In the main game, Ateneo rallied from a 7 point deficit in the last 7 minutes to frustrate the Falcons who have not beaten the Eagles since 1997. Greg Slaughter dominated the shaded lane and scored 23 points while grabbing 8 boards. Only reserve guard Alex Nuyles (11 points) reached double figures among the Falcons.

Games on Wednesday will feature the debut of Ray Parks for NU who will play the UST Golden Tigers.  The main game will pit the UP Fighting Maroons against the UE Red Warriors.
