MANILA, Philippines — Ateneo Blue Eagles seek to defend their crown in the UAAP Season 84 men’s 3×3 basketball tournament while National University Lady Bulldogs eye ‘three-peat’ in the women’s division on Thursday at Casobe Resort in Calatagan Batangas.

Ateneo is going to field Chris Koon, Geo Chiu, Inand Fornilos, and JC Fetalvero, with Sean Quitevis as reserve player in the return of the 3×3 tournament, which it won in the previous edition last 2019.

Standing in its way is University of the Philippines, which captured the men’s basketball tournament crown in dramatic fashion last month. The Fighting Maroons are banking on Gerry Abadiano, Harold Alarcon, AJ Madrigal and Brix Ramos, with Bismarck Lina and RC Calimag serving as reserves.
