Shortly after the team's victory over FEU Tamaraws in the recently concluded Game 1 of the 73rd Season UAAP Senior Men's Basketball Finals, the Ateneo Blue Eagles found themselves in the worldwide trending topics list of the popular social networking site, Twitter.
The defending champions completely dominated the game, keeping the rather lethargic FEU squad at bay. The final score was 72-49, in favor of Ateneo.
This year, Ateneo Blue Eagles' roster of players include Eric Carlo Salamat, Nicolas Raymond Salva, Raymond Leonard Austria, Carlo Balmaceda, Arthur dela Cruz, John Paul Erram, Edwin 'Jumbo' Escueta, Jeric Estrada, Frank Golla Jr., Ryan Clarence Buenafe, Justin Shaun Chua, Christian de Chavez, Emmanuel Monfort, Luis Lorenzo Gonzaga, Jeffrey Kirk Long and Juan Miguel Tiongson. The official coach of the Blue Eagles, on the other hand, is the legendary Norman Black.
