It was just last week when the Ateneo Blue Eagles made the crowd go wild after winning against the UP Fighting Maroons with the score of 99-81 at the 81st UAAP Men's Basketball Tournament. Students and fans who watched it live saw how intense the game was and how dedicated the players were in the court. Claiming back-to-back championship, the Ateneo Blue Eagles proved that they deserved to be the kings of the court this season.
What really makes their team unbeatable is the closeness that the players built through the years of playing a sport they all enjoy. It's not only about their friendship, it's more about how they became a family to the point that they learned a lot of things about each other other that we, as audience and fans, wouldn't easily guess.
We know you want to get to know the Blue Eagles more, so we invited #BEBOB members Thirdy Ravena, Mike Nieto, Matt Nieto, Jolo Mendoza, Anton Asistio, William Navarro, SJ Belangel, and Gian Mamuyac for a quick Chalk Challenge that would give us insider info about their team. From the player who would most likely ditch practice for a date to the player who always gets pranked by his teammates, watch the video below as these Ateneo Blue Eagles spilled some team secrets you would only hear here!
