With how University of Santo Tomas went through in the stepladder semifinals, there's no doubt that collegiate basketball fans are excited about the UAAP Season 82 men's basketball finals between the Tigers and the Ateneo Blue Eagles, which begin on Saturday.

The Growling Tigers didn't win a single game against the Blue Eagles in the eliminations, though, but former UST player Khazim Mirza said coach Aldin Ayo and his squad have a better chance now.

"UST is peaking at the right time," he said in an interview on "GameTime."

Former Ateneo player Bacon Austria said the Blue Eagles will have to use the right strategy to offset UST's energy.

"For Ateneo, one thing that they need to do is match the energy of UST," he said. "Preparation is key." -- Gametime, ANC, Nov. 14, 2019
