Isaac Go, Eagles foil Archers' comeback try to regain UAAP supremacy

MANILA, Philippines — Ateneo de Manila University insisted all season long that a domination of the tournament’s elimination phase was not their goal — that a championship was all that mattered. De La Salle had other plans, taking their rivalry into a do-or-die cagefest Sunday night.

But in the fourth period, Matt Nieto and Anton Asistio were just too much for the reigning champions. The pair knocked down successive triples to give Ateneo a 74-68 edge halfway the final frame.

Isaac Go, who had his picturesque moments in the playoffs, had a Kodak moment when he drilled a triple with 24.7 ticks on the clock. The pass? Orchestrated by Ravena.

"Honestly, I thought about a couple of things. One was, when I released, Kib flew by. So I thought, maybe I should have dribbled it, should have shot-faked, but I think that's bad," Go said of his crucial basket.

"Coach Tab (Baldwin) said you shouldn't think of anything when you shoot. So when I released the ball, I just let it fly," he added.
