My series on the UAAP has featured one BFF after another like a soap opera for the saints. Last Sunday, in yet one of another twists in this already twisted season that featured Maierhoffer arrogantly shooting a failed game winner, Ilad reminding UE of how 80’s basketball was played, and Chris Tiu bailing out Ateneo one game after another, the inevitable has happened. (and that is one looong sentence)
St. Thomas, who is the patron of basketball miracles (whatever school it is), helped St. LaSalle to win because St. Ignatius beat him up last week sending St. LaSalle to the finals instead of his former BFF.
Congrats to Ateneo for 5 gruelingly astig and fiercely fought games. Chris Tiu wont be returning next year which is really sad. I’ve become a fan of his last second heroics.. but it seems Maierhoffer’s arrogance rubs off on everyone. Still, A for airport! Plus, look on the bright side, you’ll be facing St. Thomas again in the battle for bronze. Please dont lose this time..
Now can anybody tell me who UE’s patron saint is?
