UAAP Blurbs

The UAAP season for basketball has been uneventful. The first round is about to come to a close and the team to beat is clearly the Ateneo Blue Eagles with a perfect 7-0 record. There are two things that are probably bothering the other teams. Two rookies to be precise.

The other one small

Kiefer Ravena

The other rookie extra large.

Greg Slaughter

The two rookies don't play like rookies. Especially Kiefer Ravena. He scores a lot on what I'd like to call "nakaw" points. He runs the court extremely well and gets to the basket the quickest time possible. He knows when to push and when to pull which is rare for a rookie. He picks his spots and knows when to score and how to score. We may have a rookie/MVP in our amidst.

Greg Slaughter on the other hand. is one big mother father (hehe). He's so big yo momma would be just one foot. Kidding aside, he has got so much size he would be a mismatch to whoever guards hims. He's got skill and soft hands around the basket. He can also shoot jumpers which would make him a threat on a nightly basis only if he could stay out of foul trouble.

UE has finally won a game despite being probably the weakest and youngest team among the bunch. The most disappointing so far is FEU. Despite their good record they seem to have lost the invincibility of the previous seasons.

Based on the games so far, I think the only threat to Ateneo's 4-peat is the Adamson Falcons.

Will we see two birds in the Finals? We'll find out soon enough!
