first_imgJo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netArvin Tolentino had his fair share of the spotlight during his time for Ateneo while Hubert Cani had been a prized recruit of the Blue Eagles for Season 78.Both, however, are now under Far Eastern University and the two produced enough moments that caused heartbreak for Ateneo in the Final Four of the UAAP Season 80 men’s basketball tournament. ADVERTISEMENT For Cani, competing against Ateneo wasn’t all about sentiments.Cani looked at the basketball aspect of the game and not the emotion of playing against his former school.“That’s the school where I came from,” said Cani in Filipino. “I know how hard it is to beat a team that is so disciplined.”Cani was the one that capped off FEU’s 20-6 run in the third quarter with a layup that put the Tamaraws up 58-44.He then, beat the shot clock buzzer with long triple with 2:45 left in the game that saw FEU take a 75-58 cushion.ADVERTISEMENT Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours LATEST STORIES Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Tamaraws force deciding game, stun Blue Eagles Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity.
