UAAP 2012 Men's Basketball Finals GAME 2: Ateneo vs UST Full Video Replay
MANILA, Philippines - The Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles made sure that there will be no repeat of 2006 as they defeated the University of Sto. Tomas Growling Tigers, 65-62, in Game Two of the UAAP Season 75 Finals to win their fifth straight men's basketball championship.
Over 20,000 fans trooped to the Araneta Coliseum Thursday to watch Game Two, with the Growling Tigers looking to pull off their most epic comeback yet and force a do-or-die Game Three.
UST had pulled off that feat once before -- in 2006, when they bucked a 0-1 series deficit to defeat the Blue Eagles in 3 games and clinch the Season 69 title. The stage seemed set for a 'Repeat of '06' after the Ateneo won Game One, 83-78.
But the four-time defending champion Blue Eagles made sure that history would not repeat itself, and instead, re-wrote the record books.
In another wild, back-and-forth contest featuring three deadlocks and 10 lead changes, it was the Blue Eagles who came up with the biggest plays in crunch time as they swept the best-of-three series.
