Manila, Philippines - The Ateneo De Manila Blue Eagles may have been struggling in this year's UAAP Season with an unusual 2-4 win-loss record. I said unusual because they're the defending champs and they're one of those teams that played really well in the Pre Season Tournaments i.e. in the Fr. Martin Cup 2013 and in the FilOil Flying V Hanes Pre Season Cup 2013.
There have been some growing pains in the hearts of the thousands of Blue Eagle Fans due to the losses that their favorite team suffered early this Season.
But I'm sure that the Blue Eagles won't be in the same predicament in the succeeding years because of their new recruits.
For the first time in the history of the Ateneo Blue Eagles Basketball Program, they will be having African players. Take a look at the picture below. From left to right: Gueye (7 ft 1 in), Ikeh (6 ft 10 in) and Ewenike (6 ft 10 in). They are the Ateneo Blue Eagles' towering African recruits for the succeeding seasons of the UAAP!
