UE Red Warriors out to clash with FEU Tamaraws this weekend

UAAP Season 73 | Game Preview: UE Red Warriors vs FEU Tamaraws | Round 1

feu vs ue

Prior to the Red Warriors’ win over UST last thursday (August 12) few of us would have thought that we could be heading away from our bid for a final 4 spot. A disappointing 1st round finish matched by controversy over our coaching staff “LQ” with head coach Chongson and by a lacklustre performance of our players. But the start of the 2nd round is different. The Red Warriors are seem to be blazing on fire when they finish off the Growling Tigers. The hope to enter the Final 4 is again set anew, even this is an almost impossible task to attain. We’re still praying that the “Will of the Warriors” would show us a better campaign throughout the 2nd round.

Next up are our neighbours from across Morayta Street who are currently at the peak of team standings. We managed to give a nerve on them last time, but after a good game we still went home empty handed.

On August 15, the battle of the East rivarly will be set to renew. Even with a shocking loss over the Adamson University, expect the FEU Tamaraws to be a more tougher opponent, especially with a dangerous line-up they have and considering that they are not going to afford a back-to-back losses in the start of the 2nd round.

The FEU Tamaraws have sweep the 1st round and only have one defeat over a tip-in by AdU Falcon Camson, so the Red Warriors’ defense will have to be on top form if we want to keep our quest for a Final 4 slot.

Paul Lee who scored his UAAP career high 27 points against FEU in the 1st round, will be the usual quarterback of the Red Warriors. Playing in wing will be Ken Acibar and Adi Santos. At the moment we’re not sure if Sam Razon’s injury he sustained in their game against UST was an ACL injury or not, but one thing is for sure that his service in the middle will take its toll on their game against FEU. The lack of players at the center position will be troublesome, so Coach Chongson should consider some option, especially that Kit Rosopa isn’t that good at the middle. By the way, our backcourt line-up are always consistent so just hope that they will deliver much better in this game.

Over FEU, this will be a big game if they want to secure the 1st standing. RR Garcia will be a good match up against Paul Lee, both contenders in the MVP title. Playing off-guard this season is the reason why he’s on top of the individual standings. Paul Sanga and the RP Gilas players are always dangerous both inside and outside the paint. And with a deep bench, it’s improbable that they can exploit so many option over the Red Warriors.

If the Red Warriors get a win against them we can close the gap between NU, UST, and DLSU to sneak into the 4th spot. But, if the Red Warriors lose(?) then it is curtains for our quest on that 19th UAAP title…

Keep in mind the difference between a winner's and a loser's mentality. Winners focus on winning big—not just how to win, but how to win big. Losers, however, don't focus on losing; they just focus on getting by!


Each Warrior wants to leave the mark of his will, his signature, on important acts he touches. This is not the voice of ego but of the human spirit, raising up and declaring that it has something to contribute to the solution of the hardest problems, no matter how vexing!
