MANILA, Philippines – Last season, the FEU Tamaraws watched their championship dreams disappear in a flash at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, thanks to the NU Bulldogs.
On Saturday, November 28, Coach Nash Racela and his boys will have an opportunity to ease the pain of last year by beating the UST Growling Tigers in game 2 of their finals. (READ: Victorious FEU wants to avoid last year’s UAAP Finals mistake)
Spearheaded by superb rebounding and clutch shots by their players, FEU was able to avoid a collapse in game one and will need similar contributions to close the deal in game 2.
The Tamaraws are also hoping to erase all the heartbreak that transpired in their past 3 finals appearances since 2010, each one resulting in defeat
UST is hopeful of avoiding a loss in the finals for the third time in 4 years, and of extending the college careers of their main guys: Kevin Ferrer, Karim Abdul, and Ed Daquioag. (READ: UST motivated to avoid same letdown from past two finals appearances)
