S74 Schedule V2.0

First posted (as far as I can tell) on ArcherPride, courtesy of a user jdcastro this is the revised schedule put forth by Ateneo after complaints from other schools (the original schedule, circa May, can be found in the comments section of my original post about the schedule).

Comparing this schedule and the "should be" schedule shows that there's still a big difference between the two. I don't know if the schools will continue to protest this, but it looks clear that Ateneo really has no intentions of following the formula for whatever reason. As I said before, my position on this is just go out and play. If your team is title-worthy, they'll go out and be competitive against any opponent placed in front of them.

Hilariously, as pointed out on another forum, DLSU was complaining about having to fight FEU-ADMU-UST-ADU in the original draft of the schedule. The poster correctly pointed out that Ateneo's first four games last season were FEU-ADU-UST-DLSU.

Another thing to point out is the fact that the game times have been made earlier, with all of the first-round match-ups featuring 1pm/3pm start times, as opposed to the 2pm/4pm start times from last season. This I feel, was a concession to get the Araneta Coliseum, what with certain PBA games scheduled there at 7pm.

This was also a much-complained about issue for certain La Sallians, as the original draft of the scheduled had the San Juan Arena as an alternate venue for ADMU-DLSU (as if the UAAP board was ever going to let that one slide). Based on this schedule, all save for six games will be played at Araneta. In contrast, last year's first round had 12 contests in the Philsports Arena, and two at the Arena in San Juan.


  1. Ey Adrian. Have you seen the S74 rosters posted on Inboundpass already? Did Estrada really get in? I was expecting Siarot to be the 3rd-string big man there. Thought Estrada was having a tough time with the acads.

  2. I think it's an interesting choice. Estrada was not on the summer roster but he was statskeeper for the team in every game in the summer leagues. Maybe Coach Norman wants someone who's been there before?
