UP rises second (4-1) in the first round of standings. When asked about the preparation of the team against DLSU today at the Mall of Asia Arena, Coach Perasol answered, “Susubukan naming mag-improve pa rin from our previous games. And I hope that we can be better to make sure that we can have the chance against a powerhouse team like La Salle.”
ICYMI: It’s another nail-biter, one-point lead win for the UP Fighting Maroons against the winless NU Bulldogs, just days after Adamson’s Soaring Falcons suffered the same fate in the previous game.
It was a nail-biter reminiscent of last season’s finals bid: the UP Fighting Maroons head to head with the Adamson University Soaring Falcons. Last year’s semifinals saw UP snatching the finals spot away from Adamson, knocking away its twice-to-beat advantage in what was arguably the two most exciting games of Season 81 of the University Athletics Association of the Philippines (UAAP) men’s basketball tournament.
The team’s effort proves inadequate against the UST Growling Tigers’ scoring prowess.
It was a blatant 103-48 win for the UST Growling Tigresses over the UP Lady Fighting Maroons on September 7, 2019 at Smart Araneta, in their first round match in UAAP Season 82 Women’s Basketball.
First game, first win. The UP Fighting Maroons took the Far Eastern University (FEU) Tamaraws by the horns to win its Season 82 opener in the University Athletics Association of Philippines (UAAP) men’s basketball tournament on September 4 at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
