The Tiger Cubs suffered a lopsided loss against the Ateneo De Manila Blue Eaglets (ADMU), 63–94, in the UAAP Season 80 juniors’ basketball tournament at the Blue Eagles Gym, Sunday, Nov. 3.

After starting the second period with an 18–2 Ateneo blitz in over five minutes, 36–20, UST Head Coach Chris Cantojas was thrown off the game after being slapped with two technical fouls for entering the court and using profane language while complaining for a non-call.

Down at 56–41 during the third period, UST’s Cyril Narvasa was also ejected for throwing a fist.

Ateneo would then capitalize on that aftermath, unleashing a 10–0 run led by Sean Ildefonso, 66–41. Cantojas was not shy to call out the officials for their questionable calls during the game.

“Ang daming mga flaws [sa tawag]. Kumbaga hindi rin naman natin kailangan na isisi sa kanila, pero ang pangit eh,” Cantojas aired. “Ang ganda ng nilalaro ng mga bata and then kokontrolin nila [yung laro].

UST had the edge in the rebound department grabbing 65 boards compared to Ateneo’s 41.

However, Ateneo dominated the painted area with 60 inside points compared to UST’s 20. Nonetheless, Cantojas praised his players for their efforts in trying to contain the Blue Eaglets.

“Yung mga bata naman lumaban. Ang problem lang naman kasi mahirap maglaro kapag ang kalaban +3 sa loob,” Cantojas said.

UST had the lead in the first canto after Vince Dolido buried a triple at the buzzer, 18–15, but Ateneo claimed all three quarters to cruise themselves to victory.

John Cansino led the team in scoring with 20 points while John Lina contributed 10 points in a losing effort.

ADMU’s Kai Sotto tallied a double-double with 20 points and 13 rebounds while Ildefonso had 19 markers. UST will try to bounce back against the De La Salle University on Dec. 9, Saturday at the Filoil Flying V Arena.

Box scores: UST (63) — Cansino 20, Lina 10, Manabat 9, Dolendo 6, Baquial 6, Palencia 4, Anunciacion 2, Estrella 2, Biag 1, Co 0, Relucio 0, Narvasa 0, Villapando 0; ADMU (94) — Sotto 20, Ildefonso 19, Belangel 15, Jaymalin 14, Manuel 10, Diaz 6, David 4, Credo 2, Chiu 2, Escalona 2, Lopa 0, Ong 0.
