Atene de Davao University opened its campaign in the 2017 SM NBTC National Finals on a high note, hacking out a convincing 80-33 demolition of Ormoc City National High School at Palm Coast Marina.

The Blue Knights, reigning Davao City champions, went all guns ablaze right from the start of the match with the local champions from Ormoc.

Coach Miggy Solitaria had the luxury of resting his big guns Francis Gabriel Escandor and Axel Doromal for the bigger game against Laguna’s St. Benilde  in the nightcap of their doubleheader.

The Blue Knights are playing St. Benilde as of presstime.
