Far Eastern University dropped the shocker against Ateneo who had the twice-to-beat advantage going to the Final Four. FEU cast doubt on the potential Ateneo-La Salle finals match-up and could very well just complete the upset this coming Wednesday.

Thirdy Ravena meanwhile steered the losing Blue Eagles with 17 points and 6 boards, Mike and Matt Nieto contributed with 13 and 11 markers apiece.
FEU and ADMU will face each other in a do-or-die match this Wednesday at the Mall of Asia Arena, with the victor booking the UAAP finals ticket opposite the De La Salle Green Archers next weekend.
