Ateneo Head Coach Tab Baldwin REACTS To Loss To Adamson (VIDEO)

UAAP Free Live Stream, Updates, Team Standings, Schedule and Results. (September 9, 2018) Adamson University (AdU) Soaring Falcons defeated the defending champion Ateneo de Manila University (AdMU) Blue Eagles, 74-70 to open its campaign in the UAAP men's basketball tournament Season 81 on a winning note on Sunday at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Ateneo head coach Tab Baldwin gives his thoughts on Ateneo Blue Eagles' loss to the Adamson Soaring Falcons; as per
"I thought that some of our younger players played like deer caught in the headlights,"

"They needed to settle into the job quicker and I don’t think Adamson allowed them to. I think there was a little bit of blood in the water and (Adamson) were the sharks, really went after them and they were effective doing that."

"We know our young players are good players. We know that they will learn from that experience. They feel bad and they feel that maybe, some of this is on their shoulders. But I told them, 'No it’s not.'"

"When we give up 14 offensive rebounds and 18 second chance points, it has got nothing to do with rookies. It has something to do with defense, being in position to box out, boxing out. All of which we failed to do. That ain’t a rookie issue, all errors are crucial errors when you lose by two points or whatever we lost by. Nineteen turnovers are unacceptable."
