The UP Fighting
Maroons closed out their season yesterday by beating the NU Bulldogs, finishing fifth with a record of 7-7. This included, of course, the unbelievable six-game winning streak after losing their first six games, stepping up to the hallowed doors of the UAAP Final Four and taking a couple of knocks.
The 0-6 start wasn't totally unexpected, given that: a) the two most talented players on the team, Marvin Cruz and Kenneth Robin, were still recovering from injuries (Marvin turned the ball over like he was still missing Jolina, and Robin looked like he needed Rustom); and, b) there was no one in the regular rotation who stood over 6-3.
But as they say, it's not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog. Don't you just love the UP Fighting
Maroons? They fight so hard that you couldn't help believing, and they win just enough to break your heart.
