Dream Game: Eagles seek revenge vs Archers June 2


ATENEO has a score to settle with La Salle when the fierce rivals  slug it out again in an exhibition match named Dream Game: Revenge slated June 2 at Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay.

After the Green Archers won by 13 points in the first duel last year, the clamor for a return bout has been enormous.

Playing for these squads are former  standouts now playing or are in lineups of the  PBA ballclubs. Chris Tiu and Eman Monfort will debut for the Blue Eagles.

Don Allado was the hero last year with 23 points and will again be strutting his stuff for La Salle. Last year, he did his own version of the “Tebowing” at midcourt after leading the Archers to a 117-104 victory.

Simon Atkins, who now plays for Air21, will be the new addition for La Salle.

Franz Pumaren will call the shots for La Salle with Sandy Arespacochaga, who also serves as Norman Black’s assistant at Talk ‘N Text, coaching Ateneo.

“I think this kind of exhibition game held between rival schools will be good eventually not just for the PBA, but for college tournaments as well,” said PBA commissioner Chito Salud.

Also suiting up for La Salle are Mike Cortez, RenRen Ritualo, Joseph Yeo, JV Casio, Rico Maierhofer, Carlo Sharma, Mac Cardona, Ryan Arana, TY Tang, and Willy Wilson.

Comprising Ateneo are Wesley Gonzales, Rich Alvarez, Rabeh Al-Hussaini, JC Intal, Doug Kramer, Rico Villanueva, Paolo Bugia, Noy Baclao, Eric Salamat, and Magnum Membrere.
