At least, the boys were humbled down.”Silva saw the differences—from the practices to the bus ride to the venue, to moments before Game 3 started — that Ateneo is hell-bent on bagging its first title in three years.“We had the right mindset coming into this game. We really knew that we wanted the championship,” he said.And just like the last time he hoisted the trophy with his Blue Eaglets, Silva still revels in the celebration of this recent success.“We took the same route but its a different cast of characters, different experiences. Both are fulfilling,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Pussycat Dolls set for reunion tour after 10-year hiatus Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university PLAY LIST 01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City Stephen Curry shatters hotel table after golf blunder LATEST STORIES Read Next Finishing with a perfect 14-0 sweep of the eliminations, Ateneo seemed poised to complete the rare perfect season.As much as Silva and the players tried to downplay the situation, they knew that eventually, the streak would get in their heads — something which happened in Game 2, when the Blue Eaglets fell for the first time, 70-67, last Tuesday.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“If I’ll mention in Game 2, I felt that the sweep got in our heads.
