The Sweetest Win, An Unbelievable Defeat

Just how exciting UAAP (University Athletic Association of the Philippines) Men’s Basketball is?

Well, let us go back in 2006 UAAP Finals, Game 1, Ateneo de Manila University (AdMU) versus University of Santo Tomas (UST) and see how fortune swings fast in UAAP Men’s Basketball. Ateneo needed only a second to win


As they say history repeats itself and so it does and so it did on August 30, 2007. With 2 seconds left, UST ahead by 1 point, a long shot by Kirk Long, and the rest was a repeat of history. Ateneo won.

Today at 3pm at Araneta Coliseum, ADMU meets DLSU for the third time this season. Which side and what color will you be? Are you going BLUE or GREEN?

    then yesterday, it was dlsu’s sweet revenge. even though my bet was admu by 3, i already had my doubts, i didn’t even like to watch. the last shot could have been a 3 pointer, but nay, the pointer gave dlsu a 1-pt win.

    on sunday it will be ust-admu at the araneta at 3 pm. it is now a very hard path for admu, it must win the game with ust, then another 2 against dlsu for it to move to the finals. sigh! the game with NU really spelled the difference.

    i will still shout ONE BIG FIGHT!

    myepinoy says, That is what my son said also. Yes, ONE BIG FIGHT, that’s the spirit. BTW, i learned that animo means spirit. LOL

    I watched the video clip and man, that was an unbelievable win, the worst upset I’ve ever seen. If this happened in professional sports, the UST coach wouldn’t be around the next season. You can’t lose with 1 second to go !😦

    myepinoy says,This win is really unbelievable. Fortunately, UST won the championships for this season so the coach stays. ha ha ha.

    Manuel Buencamino of Uniffors and I sat on opposite sides. He wore blue and I wore green. It was a sweet victory in the end but I will not call it revenge.

    myepinoy says, You are playing safe ha… Just kidding..
