UE Subdues Defending Champs

APPARENTLY, the University of the East is in it to win it.

James Martinez scored 22 points, including four three-point bombs in the fourth quarter, to lift the Red Warriors past Ateneo de Manila, 62-60 in UAAP Season 73 at the Araneta Coliseum last Thursday, August 26.

It was a reversal of roles from their first encounter where Ateneo erased a UE lead in the fourth quarter. With Ateneo up by seven at the beginning of the payoff period, Martinez opened up Ateneo’s perimeter defense by nailing four of his six threes on a day where he shot 60 percent from beyond the arc.
