ATENEO defeated TNT, 103-86, on Saturday in a tuneup game at the Moro Lorenzo Sports Center in Quezon City.
Dwight Ramos had 22 points and Tyler Tio added 13 points for the Blue Eagles. Angelo Kouame had nine points and nine rebounds.
TNT was playing its first tuneup game in preparation for the 2020 PBA Philippine Cup.
The KaTropa played without Poy Erram, who was on the bench in his first day since the trade between NLEX and Blackwater became official.
Top guns Jayson Castro, Roger Pogoy, and Troy Rosario were also used sparingly.
The match was still close, 74-68, entering the fourth quarter but the reigning UAAP champions took control in the final period.
The Blue Eagles are preparing for the Philippine Collegiate Champions League Final Four set next week.
