Belangel scores 20 points
as Blue Eaglets tame FEU

Bacoleño Samjosef Belangel continues to shine in the UAAP junior basketball as he scored 20 points to anchor the 68-65 Ateneo Blue Eaglets win against Far Eastern University Saturday at the Filoil Flying V Center in Metro Manila.

Belangel's big game was complemented by a 16-point production from teammate Kai Sotto while Joaqui Manuel delivered 12 points and Dave Ildefonso with 11 points.

The win allowed the Blue Eaglets to keep a clean slated at 10-0.

It was a hard fought game as FEU was up by eight points late in the third quarter which the Blue Eaglets managed to bring down to 3 going into the final quarter.

Belangel and Manuel picked the right time to sizzle as the Junior Tamaraws dictated the tempo of the game in the first half. With their combined efforts, the Blue Eaglets outscored the young Tamaraws, 15-10 in the third quarter.

RJ Abarrientos led FEU with 16 points.*
