    ATENEO looks to keep its unbeaten run going as the Blue Eagles face winless University of Santo Tomas on Wednesday in the UAAP Season 80 seniors basketball tournament at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    The Blue Eagles, on top of the team standings with a 4-0 win-loss record, take on the Growling Tigers at 4 p.m.

    Ateneo is fresh from an 83-65 win over University of the East to post its fourth straight win in the tournament on Sunday.

    UST, on the other hand, continued to struggle as the Growling Tigers lost to Far Eastern University, 78-65, on Saturday.

    Ateneo coach Sandy Arespacochaga said they are treating the UST game as any other game.

    "We can't be complacent and we can't think 4-0 na kami. We can't afford to think like that," said Arespacochaga.

    "We can't fall into the trap of looking and enjoying our record," said Arespacochaga.

    Focus will again be on Thirdy Ravena, who had 21 points and eight rebounds against UE and is averaging 18.8 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists, while shooting 22-of-33 from two-point range.

    Far Eastern University and National University, both with 2-2 records, collide at 2 p.m.

    The Tamaraws are looking to score a second straight win, while the Bulldogs are hoping to get back on the winning track after losing to Adamson, 83-76, on Sunday.
