    Greg Slaughter Cleared to Play For Ateneo Blue Eagles In UAAP Season 74 Men's Basketball

    “Just got word that I am cleared to play in this year’s UAAP. I’m good to go."
    That's what Greg Slaughter said in a text message after he heard the news that he was cleared by the UAAP Eligibility Committee to play for the Ateneo Blue Eagles in the upcoming UAAP Season 74. The committee gave their verdict last June 28, 2011.

    Before he was cleared, the minority of the UAAP Board questioned his eligibility. They were saying that he violated a rule in the league that a player is not allowed in a professional basketball league like the PBA. We may recall that Aldrech Ramos and JR Cawaling didn't suit up for Smart Gilas in the PBA Fiesta Conference because they were not allowed by FEU because of the said UAAP rule. Greg Slaughter was the only college baller who stayed with Gilas during their stint in the PBA. But here's the catch, he didn't undergo the usual PBA Draft which is a requisite to be called a professional PBA player. Therefore, his stay with Gilas can never be a hindrance for him to play in the UAAP because Gilas is still considered as an amateur basketball team and not a bona fide PBA team.

    Thus, the new center of the Ateneo Blue Eagles will now be able apply the lessons that he learned from his stay with the University of Visayas Lancers and from his stay with the Smart Gilas Pilipinas Basketball Team in the upcoming UAAP Season 74 cage wars. The Ateneo will try to get their 4th UAAP Men's Basketball Title.

    They will start their quest on July 10, 2011, Sunday, at 4:00 p.m. against the Adamson Soaring Falcons.
