Ateneo remained spotless in the UAAP Season 80 men’s basketball fending off Far Eastern University, 94-82, Sunday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

FEU battled back in the fourth with Arvin Tolentino cutting the lead down to nine, 87-78, on a triple but Matt Nieto had the quick counter hitting a three of his own to put Ateneo back up by a dozen, 90-78, with 3:09 left.

Ravena, then, essentially finished FEU after tipping in Anton Asistio’s missed three at the 2:30 mark to give Ateneo a 92-80 lead.

Ateneo coach Sandy Arespacochaga was proud of what his team had done on the offensive side of the floor but he wanted more effort on the defensive end after they allowed FEU to score more than 80 points.
