UAAP: What it feels like to be with 21,000 UP-Adamson fans in the Araneta Coliseum

After the University of the Philippines forced a do-or-die game versus Adamson University last Saturday, Paul Desiderio expressed how much he loved the support of the UP community present at the Mall of Asia Arena. To him, the cheers and the chants pumped him up for every play. When asked if Saturday's crowd was the biggest crowd he has ever played in front of, he had this to say. "Hindi pa ito, mayroon pa sa Wednesday," said the team captain. With his 'Atin 'To' promise from last season came another prophecy fulfilled from Desiderio. Come Wednesday, this time in the Araneta Coliseum, nearly 21,000 fans clad either in blue or maroon filled the coliseum to the brim. The blue side came earlier than the maroon side. At least 45 minutes before the tipoff, a jam-packed Adamson side was already belting out their signature cheers while waving their blue and white balloons.

Classes were suspended and bus services were provided. The Adamson supporters consisted mostly of current students and youthful fans. Bright Akhuetie shared hearing those cheers while he was still in the locker room preparing for the match. "When I was in the dugout I actually asked someone if there was a game going on. Seriously, I asked, 'Who's playing out there? Are we playing after that game?' and they were like 'No, nobody's playing,' then I said 'Why are they shouting?," said the Fighting Maroon in between laughs. As the tip-off neared, the UP community composed of students, middle-aged alumni, and even senior citizens caught up and started filling their side of the coliseum. Team captain Paul Desiderio made a quick eye test of their crowd and deduced a funny observation which head coach Bo Perasol revealed after the game. "Sabi ni Paul pagbalik niya, sabi niya 'Coach talo tayo sa crowd.' Sabi ko, 'Bakit?' Sabi niya, 'Matatanda 'yung crowd natin, mga bata 'yung Adamson. Napaka-energetic, sigaw ng sigaw.' 'Eh 'yung atin?' 'Nakatunganga doon, matatanda.' Sabi ko, 'Mga alumni natin 'yan!," said Perasol beside a laughing Desiderio. "[Adamson] got kids and they hyped! They were super hyped but wow," Akhuetie added. When the game started, it was pandemonium. All game long, both jam-packed sides were screaming out loud with their cheers. There was rarely a moment that neither "UP Fight" nor "Unawakanahimo" was heard. One can literally feel the magnitude of every shot courtesy of the fans' jumping in the stands. Desiderio's observation that Adamson's crowd was more youthful can be validated by the fun gimmicks the blue-and-white supporters did during timeouts. There were times that Adamson supporters raised flashlights from their smart phones and there were also times that they would do waves around their half of the venue. The Maroons on the other hand just did the classic variations of their cheers -- the UP Fight callbacks and the U-nibersidad verse complete with actions. The usual trash talk between both sides was also present. The boos, the lutos, the iyakins were all there. The mood of the crowd was telling. Something spectacular was really about to happen. Jun Manzo's spin move and scoop shot in regulation happened. Jerom Lastimosa's game-tying triple to force an overtime happened. Then the crazy back-and-forth extra five minutes happened. Then Desiderio's jumper that provided to be marginal basket happened. The final buzzer sounded and it signalled the end of the Finals drought for the Maroons. After 32 years, UP is back in the biggest stage of the UAAP. It was UP's turn to raise their flashlights. "I saw a lot of maroon. All I saw was flashlights. Everywhere. I was like, 'Oh my God, these people, they came out ready," Akhuetie shared. The supporters who Desiderio referred to as young once screamed and jumped their hearts out. "Eh ngayon naman, tumayo din kahit matanda. Umingay na rin, namaos na rin ang mga alumni namin from the ages," Perasol narrated. Tears of joy and screams of relief were heard from the maroon side while sighs of frustration and exasperation creeped through the blue side. But everyone still went home with a warm heart and a memory of their school cheer sung by the whole coliseum. As per UAAP tradition, the UP Pep Squad Drummers played the A-D-A-M-S-O-N cheer as the whole 360-degrees of the venue joined screaming every letter and syllabication of the name of the school that just gave them the toughest yet sweetest game. UP fans pay tribute to the Adamson University after the do-or-die thriller. #UAAPFinalFour #UAAPSeason81 pic.twitter.com/IUvWQQ6ai8 — Danine Cruz (@the9cruz) November 28, 2018 The Adamson Drummers paid the favor back and hit the U-nibersidad cheer as everyone regardless of color celebrated the victory of a history-seeking team. Adamson University's turn to sing U-nibersidad after the close game. #UAAPFinalFour #UAAPSeason81 pic.twitter.com/vFD73yIvLy — Danine Cruz (@the9cruz) November 28, 2018 It was sportsmanship at its finest.  After the high of that instant classic match, one thing is for sure -- UP and Adamson just gave the fans the most complete UAAP basketball experience. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @the9cruz.....»»

Standhardinger, Hong Kong fall in OT to Saigon anew

Akeem Scott and super Saigon continue to have defending champion Hong Kong’s number in the 2017-2018 Asean Basketball League. Scott dropped 38 points while also stuffing the stat sheet to tow the home team Heat past Eastern, 118-115, in another overtime classic on Sunday at the CIS Arena in Ho Chi Minh City. For the second straight game, the two teams needed an extra period to settle the score. There, the home team raced to a 5-0 start and a 108-103 lead they would nurse until Filipino-German Christian Standhardinger pulled the defending champions to within 113-116 with 29 ticks to go on the clock. Hong Kong would be unable to get any closer, however, as the Vietnamese defense forced a missed jumper from Marcus Elliott and then a turnover from Standhardinger the rest of the way. With that, Hong Kong fell for just the second time in 11 games – both times at the hands of Saigon. Scott was a star for the Heat yet again and also tallied 38 points, eight rebounds, six steals, and five assists. Backing him up were Maxie Esho wo had 27 points, seven rebounds, and two blocks as well as Filipino-American Mikey Williams who had 23 markers, nine boards, five assists, and three steals. With another upset of powerhouse Eastern, the Heat now stand at 5-5 – well within striking distance of fourth-running 8-4 Alab Pilipinas. For Hong Kong, Standhardinger topped the scoring column with 31 points on top of 18 rebounds. --- Follow this writer on twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Treat your skin gently at all times

  There is a portion in the childhood classic "Heidi" by Johanna Spyri where the child protagonist is told by her grandfather to wash up one morning before she can go up the mountains with her friend Peter. When she reappears, she has scrubbed her face, arms and neck clean that "as she stood there, she was as red all over as a lobster."   That squeaky clean feeling might seem like the ideal of cleanliness, but is actually proof that we've gone overboard. As Dr. Mara Huber, a and member of the Philippine Dermatological Society, pointed out recently, "Cleanser is the most damaging part of our regimen because of the surfactants (surface active agents) that don't diffe...Keep on reading: Treat your skin gently at all times.....»»

A good watch, a go-to bag–9 staples to keep as you declutter

  As the year comes to a close and we welcome Christmas gifts, there is no better time than now to declutter and assess what you really need.   I recommend keeping these nine staples:   A black blazer. But not any will do. A good blazer should have a classic look and should fit just right: not too tight and not too loose.   A white T-shirt. I get mine from James Perse.   Jeans are a standard pick. A good pair will see you through many wears and occasions. Choose a pair that gives your butt a good lift. Make sure it falls straight and has a slim fit.   Pencil skirt. An alternative to jeans is a classic pencil skirt...Keep on reading: A good watch, a go-to bag–9 staples to keep as you declutter.....»»
