Ateneo sweeps 25-under, 19-under titles in Milcu summer showcase cagefest

ATENEO collected the 25-under and 19-under crowns of the Milcu Sports Basketball Summer Showcase recently in two separate venues.

The Blue Eagles defeated Our Lady of Fatima University, 67-50, to rule the 25-under final held at the Lyceum gym, while the Blue Eaglets overcame Far Eastern University, 59-39, to capture the 19-under title.

Anton Asistio had 14 points and three rebounds for the Blue Eagles in the 25-under championship game of the tournament organized by Got Skills and Gamboa Sports and sanctioned by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas.

Dave Ildefonso, meanwhile, tallied 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Blue Eaglets in the lopsided victory over the Baby Tamaraws in the tournament also backed by Gatorade, LGR, Clyde Shoe Cleaner, Basketball TV, Gerry's Grill, Rain or Shine, Honda Cars Greenhills, FMR Bus Services, Coach Athletic Tape, Mighty Sports, Patricio's Online Sneaker Store, and Secret Fresh.

The titles by the Ateneo seniors team coached by Tab Baldwin should bode well to their preparation for the coming season of the UAAP that is set to begin in September.
