The first win of the UP Fighting Maroons is just overwhelming! It’s like a long-awaited rain after a much-dreaded drought. Everyone is all giddy and cheery about this significant development. Who can blame them? UP has been in the bottom of the league for several years now. I think it’s just fine to celebrate even the littlest of accomplishments.

Anyway, since this blog is turning out to be a UAAP Resource Pool, why not live up to it? Haha. Here’s a fearless forecast from Enzo Flojo of GMANews.TV on the Maroons’ performance this season:

The Fighting Maroons of coach Aboy Castro have nowhere to go but up. Armed with a core of hungry players, and the motivation of their Centennial celebration, these guys are ready to show up this season.

People haven’t forgotten their winless performance last year, and have used this to dismiss this squad as this generation’s version of last generation’s NU. However, the UAAP has a way of turning the tables on unsuspecting individuals.

Pure talent runs through the veins of UP’s cagers, and they just might upend everybody’s gloomy outlook for their team. Woody Co, Jay Agbayani and Magi Sison should be serviceable frontliners to compliment their gunners in Martin Reyes and Migs De Asis. Arvin Braganza and Mike Gamboa will split the court generalship chores, while Mark Lopez and Paul Sorongon should prove to be competitive swingmen.

Getting a single win would be a significant improvement, a couple more would be welcome, at least four or five will be momentous, and actually scraping a Final Four berth will be nothing short of a miracle.

Coach Castro has his work cut out for him, but I’m pretty sure his wards will go forth guns.

The thing with fearless forecasts is that they’re that… a mere forecast (unsure, unreliable). I think, more than predicting what’s going to happen in the future, these forecasts are meant to be a challenge. So to UP Men’s Basketball Team, rise up to the occasion!!!

Anyway, here are the photos as the title of this post suggests:

    JM, as a concerned friend, NEVER take the name of Chris Tiu in vain.

    i should know very well… has severely dangerous repercussions. hell hath no fury like a tiu-natic scorned. 🙁

    but since you put it that way, kung “baby” lang naman ang turing mo kay Chris, i would be MORE than willing to change his diaper and feed him “milk”.

    hahaha! scandalous!
