UAAP Finals: Pumaren sees Ateneo with the upper hand vs UP

As neighbors Ateneo de Manila University and University of the Philippines dispute UAAP Season 81 men's basketball supremacy starting Saturday, Adamson head coach Franz Pumaren sees it as an advantage for the defending champions. The Blue Eagles, Pumaren says, have the advantage of a longer break, since they defeated the FEU Tamaraws last Nov. 25, while UP just advanced following a hard-fought 89-87 overtime win Wednesday evening. "Advantage right now is Ateneo. Why? UP's gonna be tired of the emotions, everything physically," the coach said. However, if one thing's for sure, the boys from Diliman could always harness energy from their electric crowd, whose cheers reverberated througout the Araneta Coliseum in the winner-take-all encounter. The 54-year old also praised the Maroon-clad crowd for their overwhelming support for the team, which advanced to their first championship series since 1986. "[The crowd's] just like a typhoon surge that is hard to stop. But the only question is when will the surge stop? Kasi they won purely because of heart and because of the support of the community," he shared. Game 1 of the UAAP Season 81 Men's Basketball finals start on Saturday, Dec. 1, on ABS-CBN S+A, S+A HD, and via livestream on sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/uaap. __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»
