UP titos Ronnie Magsanoc, Benjie Paras congratulate '16Strong

Gone are the days that Ronnie Magsanoc, Benjie Paras, Eric Altamirano and Joey Guanio are the only benchmarks of University of the Philippines basketball greatness. In the UAAP Season 81, Paul Desiderio, Bright Akhuetie, Juan Gomez de Liano and the rest of the modern day Fighting Maroons made history by making it back in the Final Four since 1997 and the Finals since 1986. Now, just spectators and UP titos, both Magsanoc and Paras just can't help but feel very proud of the achievement. "Doon palang sa makarating sa Final Four yung manalo pa lang sa La Salle, very happy saka very proud sa nagawa ng mga bata sa kanilang Coach Bo [Perasol], sa lahat ng sakripisyo nila, sa lahat ng mga tumulong, naramdaman mo na nagbunga," said Magsanoc, "It was the realization na they were in the right direction saka natutuwa ako na nabuhay yung pride sa community." "Congratulations to Coach Bo, his coaching staff, his players na nagpakahirap para dito. We're here, we are still here to support in other ways," chipped in Paras. If the two had it their way, they would not want any exposure anymore as the 1986 champions thinking that this year is no longer their time. They said that this is the #16Strong's time. But when ABS-CBN Sports pressed them for some sort of reaction or message regarding this year's splendid run of the Maroons, they tipped their hats off to two entities: the coaching staff and the UP community. "[Hindi na ako nagulat sa dami ng tao.] Expected na yan na once pumasok sa Final Four ang UP, or any other team, pag pumasok yun, talagang buhos lahat ng support and for that team to win again and in the Finals," Paras said. "More than gulat eh natutuwa talaga ako para sa mga players kasi you see people coming together for them. Maski naman noon, mayroon naman talaga na mga loyal fans pero ito kasi it has bridged three decades of different generations eh," Magsanoc added. "The coaching staff has done an outstanding job from the players na tinatawag na 16 Strong, whatever happens here we will be very proud of the Fighting Maroons so nagpapasalamat kami kasi they have put the fight back in the Maroons after a long time," Magsanoc said. Season 81 was a year of rewriting history for the Fighting Maroons - Final Four, Finals, MVP. With that, both UP legends expressed that against Ateneo de Manila University, win or lose, the #16Strong are legends. "Whatever happens in the series, I think they have cemented themselves sa legacy ng school, nung sport, sa UAAP. Job well done for Coach Bo and the Fighting Maroons including the staff," Magsanoc shared. This year proved that UP basketball is no longer just about Magsanoc, Paras, Altamirano, and Guanio. They are now joined by names like Desiderio, Akhuetie, and Gomez de Liano. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @the9cruz.....»»

CHAMPIONS AT LONG LAST: Reliving UP’s successful 1986 UAAP revolt

It was the year of People Power, a revolution like no other. And, who would think that such an “uprising” has spilled onto collegiate basketball the same year as the stronghold of the UE Red Warriors was overran? What other ball club can best depict this EDSA Spirit than the 1986 UP Fighting Maroons? Its putsch in the UAAP was carefully plotted since legendary coach Joe Lipa took over the coaching reigns in 1981. This began fierce onslaught only a year later when the Maroons made a rare march into the UAAP Finals against the UE, which boasted a fearsome shooter named Allan Caidic. Title contender Led by the high leaper, Vincent Albino, the Maroons made that shocking feat, yet succumbed to the Warriors’ fiery offensive and lost. But, UP showed nevertheless they had what it takes to be a title contender. And the rebuilding continued in 1983 when UP successfully recruited two big names in the NCAA--Ronnie Magsanoc and Eric Altamirano, stalwarts of the 1982 juniors champs San Beda Red Cubs. With Magsanoc directing plays and Altamirano scorching hot from all angles, UP further advanced in its ferocious plan of taking over the UAAP. But Glenn Capacio and Harmon Codinera of FEU frustrated the upstarts and dealt UP a painful loss in the Finals after being so close to winning the championship. Missing link Their frustration became deeply rooted as the Maroons stumbled the next couple of years finding that “missing link” to glory. And months after a dictatorship was toppled, UP’s powerful missing piece to its years of rebuilding came walking into the Maroon bench—the sensational 6’4” center Benjie Paras, also a hotshot alumnus of San Beda. Paras became the answered prayer since the Maroons had players with an average height of 6’1” at the time, surely a no-match against the burly inside operators of other UAAP teams. Now with a dominating center manning the paint, UP was set to finally chase that dream. And also they had an answer to the best big man of that era, Jerry Codinera, who had puzzled opponents with his shiftiness, defensive prowess (called the Defense Minister in the PBA), exceptional perimeter shooting, and versatility. Best starting five Also, UP has the best starting five in the league, all of them from that sensational Red Cubs basketball program concocted by coach Ato Badolato—Paras, Magsanoc, Altamirano, Joey Mendoza and Duane Salvatierra—with the sweet-shooting sixth man Joey Guanio, a rookie from La Salle Greenhills, providing added artillery and standout Ramil Cruz bringing in his outstanding all-around play. Despite this, however, their title shot wasn’t smooth sailing. Codinera and the Warriors defeated them twice in the eliminations and UE came close to a sweep that would automatically serve them the trophy. But a loss to rival FEU in the last game in the eliminations paved the way for UP, who landed second place after winning a knockout match against the Tamaraws, for that hard-earned slot in the finals. They were however saddled with a twice-to-win disadvantage. Title hungry This didn’t matter to the Maroons, as their hunger for the title brought out the best in them. With thousands of UP supporters trooping to the ULTRA in October 1986, the Maroons were unstoppable. Using a merciless zone, the Maroons were able to stifle Codinera from doing his thing in the paint. This led to UP’s emphatic decisive win in Game 1, 86-75, that arranged a winner take-all championship match three days later. And, in that rubber match, with the whole venue filled with UP students and alumni, from students, faculty, administrators to virtually the entire political spectrum to even former Diliman Commune leaders in the 1970s all coming in droves to cheer them on, how can the Maroons fail them? Altamirano’s true worth From the first time the buzzer sounded, the Maroons never allowed the Warriors to even move an inch, with its prolific scorer Altamirano showing his true worth. After subbing for a fouled out Magsanoc with a good four minutes left to play in the match, Altamirano shone with his playmaking skills and blazing marksmanship with his 27 points leaving the Warriors with no room to breathe. He ended up the tournament MVP that year. Paras likewise prevailed in his giant duel with Codinera with 19 points and 10 rebounds. With an insurmountable lead going into the final seconds, and coach Lipa reaching to the sky in triumph, the buzzer sounded with UP winning by nine points, 98-89. More than a dream come true And their first UAAP title in 47 years is now in their hands, more than a dream come true for the national cage mentor and the UP community he served. It brought a startling “revolution” into fruition, with UP taking over the reigns of the UAAP. Unfortunately, however, the celebration was short-lived, with the Ateneo, La Salle, and UST dynastic runs succeeding their memorable feat. Now 32 seasons later, UP has a chance to finally taste that sweet, scintillating victory again......»»
