Game 3: It all comes down to this

All of the UAAP Season 75 basketball champs have been vanquished.
The FEU Baby Tamaraws didn't even reach the finals this year.
The FEU Lady Tamaraws were screwed of a playoff berth this year, after a player played outside the UAAP while the UAAP season was ongoing. (The "ligang labas" rule, another rule which doesn't make sense.)
And of course, the Ateneo Blue Eagles legitimately didn't even make it to the playoffs this year.

It's not just the defending champs were dethroned: at least on the two already finished tournaments, the losing finalist last year won this year. In the yet unresolved men's tournament, last year's losing finalist, UST, is still in the running:

Also, 2013 will be the first year since 2001 where no Ateneo team won a UAAP basketball title. From 2002 to 2012, an Ateneo team, at least one amongst its men's, women's or juniors' teams has won a UAAP title per year. They haven't won all 3 titles in a year though, a mark that belongs to the 1994 UST Growling Tigers, Tigresses and Tiger Cubs.
