Things That Make Me Smile: UAAP

Even though the UST Tigers lost to Ateneo in game 2 of the UAAP season 75 basketball finals, the live game experience is still one of a kind. I have a lot of reasons to smile despite another heartbreaking loss.

Hearing the Go USTE cheer live is really an experience. There is something momentous in cheering for your alma mater with all your heart. Truly, college basketball is one of the best.

The players

Both Ateneo and UST gave their best in this game. It was so close that the game can go either way. In the end, I would say that Ateneo’s experience and UST’s free throws cost us the game. Hats off to both teams – including a more subdued Coach Pido 🙂

Ateneo vs UST: game 2 of UAAP 75 finals

Hail, Ateneo, Hail!

I commend the UST crowd for giving a standing ovation and clapping wholeheartedly right after the game, after Ateneo sang their hymn and when the team was awarded the Championship trophy. That is good sportsmanship.

One Big Fight!
One Big Fight!

Go USTe! 

I got teary eyed and goose bumps when we sang the UST Hymn and again felt proud when the crowd kept cheering GO USTE even after the game. Even after the loss. School pride makes me smile. 🙂

Go USTe!
Go USTe!

So despite the loss, the experience was all worthwhile. Coz at the end of the day, Ang tomasino May Puso, Pride at Palaban. Bawi na lang next year 🙂
