The UAAP Season 77 game between the Ateneo Blue Eagles and FEU wasn't the only nail-biter involving an Ateneo de Manila basketball team last Saturday, September 13, 2014. Earlier  in the day, from 10:30 am to 11:30am, Ateneo de Manila beat La Salle Greenhills by just one point in their PRADA midgets encounter at Xavier School in San Juan. The final score was 41-40. It was a very suspenseful game because La Salle was up by one point with only 22 seconds remaining. Playing on this page is video of the game's last few seconds.

Ateneo currently has a win-loss record of 6-1 in the PAYA midgets basketball tournament.

The members of the Ateneo de Manila PAYA midgets team are Tomy Tanjuatco, Kobe Deonio, Tim Oscaris, Teo Hosaka, Gio Divino, Marcus Lao, Miguel Cabradilla, Vito Martin, JC Baltazar, Migo Narciso, Luigi Soliven, Joaquin Cortes, Troi Balisi, Tim Orda and Don Onia. They are coached by Patrick Borjal and Ron Perada.
