Coach Bo is asking us to “keep on cheering for the team no matter what happens.” Let’s support the UP Fighting Maroons as they start off the second round with a match against the FEU Tamaraws on October 6, 4:00PM, at the Mall of Asia Arena.

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.
