Nico Salva scoops one in
The Father Martin's Cup proved to be the debut of the most sought after High school star Kiefer Ravena. Ravena started the game against NAASCU contender St Clare Saints in the Blue Eagles first game of the season. Kiefer did not waste time as he scored from a drive on the baseline and eventually topscored in his first game with 17 points. Rookie hotshot Mark Tallo, former Junior Archer Gwynne Capacio and Ravena's sparring partner Von Pessumal had enough minutes and showed that they have adjusted to Coach Norman's system.
Mark Tallo showed good ball handling skills
Visibly missing on the Blue Eagles bench were Ryan Buenafe, Art de la Cruz and Chris de Chavez who were all having academic problems while Oping Sumalinog and Greg Slaughter were not there for various reasons. The five missing guys opened up a lot of big minutes for the rest of the Blue Eagles who were unforgiving in their 102-60 conquest of the saints.
Ravena,. off to the races
Five Blue Eagles were in double figures. Besides Ravena, Justin Chua was unstoppable inside as he scored 16 points while his back up Jepoy Erram responded well in the fourth quarter that gave him a career high of 16 points. Former Blue Eaglet power forward showed tremendous versatility as shooting guard as he sank four three pointers enroute to 14 points while the very reliable Nico Salva gave his share by scoring 14 points as well. Capacio had five points while Pessumal and Tallo sank one three pointer each.
