BANAL AT THE HELM AS EAGLES BATTLE TAMARAWS

Manila, July 17, 2003 (MALAYA) Coach Joel Banal will call the shots today when defending champion Ateneo takes on Far Eastern U in the resumption of the 66th UAAP basketball championship at the Araneta Coliseum.

Banal missed the Blue Eagles' first game last Sunday, a 68-69 loss to University of the East. Banal will be up against his brother, Koy, who guided the Tamaraws to a 57-53 win over Adamson also last Sunday.

"It will be a very tough game for sure," said Banal. "FEU is coming off a victory so I'm sure Koy will do his best to keep his team on the winning track. We will do what we can to redeem ourselves from that loss to UE."

The other seniors match pits Santo Tomas against National University.
