During the UAAP Season 77 Finals, things were billed as a match-up between FEU’s offense and NU’s defense. The Bulldogs, as we know, held the Tamaraws below 60 points in their two wins, and went on to claim their first UAAP title in decades.
Fast-forward to Season 78 though, and it was FEU’s defense that did the trick this time.
NU scored just 59 points, and FEU stormed ahead thanks in large part to a 16-6 third period.
Check out the highlights of the game below:
FEU finished with a 6-1 record, but will have to settle for second place, as the number one team, the UST Growling Tigers, were the only squad to defeat them in round one. NU meanwhile is at 3-4.
