The Ateneo Blue Eagles completed a historic 4-peat. After winning Game 1 82-64, they followed it up with an 82-69 rout. They once again made their run in the 3rd period with 22-9 advantage. They turned a 35-36 deficit into a 57-45 advantage going into final period.

An 11-2 run in the middle of the 4th period orchestrated by senior Emman Monfort broke the backs of Tamaraws as Ateneo lead 76-57 barely 3 minutes left in the game. Ateneo’s reserves just held on to clinch the title for the Eagles.

Nico Salva was voted as the Finals MVP after shooting the lights out of Araneta in 2 Final games. He won his 4th title in his collegiate career. It was a banner season for Ateneo awards-wise with Kiefer Ravena winning the Rookie of the Year. Greg Slaughter and Ravena made it to the UAAP Mythical Team this season.

Ateneo lost only once this season. The Adamson Soaring Falcons is the only team that beat Ateneo in Men’s Basketball this season. The Falcons captured 3rd place this year after losing to the FEU Tamaraws in the Final 4 even with a twice to beat advantage. Ateneo will try to go for a 5-peat next season.
