MANILA, Philippines – Exceptions are made to the Ateneo Blue Eagle whenever Ange Kouame asserts his dominance in the ring.

Blue Eagles rode on Kouame’s shoulder and their great match to beat the National College Bulldogs, 77-60, on Wednesday night during the UAAP Season 85 men’s basketball tournament at Philsports Arena.

The aggressive giants netted 17 points and 12 rebounds while Forthsky Padrigao buried three of the crucial straits and finished with 13 points, his effectiveness underrated compared to the rest of the Blue Eagles. .

“I am happy that we are leading 2-0, but there is still a lot of work to be done. Ateneo head coach Tab Baldwin said:

Shooting 50% from the field, the Blue Eagles nailed a 10 with Sean Ildefonso and Bryan Andrade getting a few good looks from a distance that kept the Bulldogs chasing them most of the time.

Michael Malonzo leads the Bulldogs with 13 points and Jhon Lloyd Clemente has nine more in his first loss of the season after his season-opening win over UE Warriors.
