At this point in the series, the UST Growling Tigers and the De La Salle Green Archers have both proven that they would fight tooth and nail for the UAAP championship. You've done us real good, kids, and heading into Game 3, we have one little favor to ask of you: Please make us witness history this Saturday.
The thing is we're too invested here; too involved. All we want is to see a nail-biter. A clincher; a buzzer beater; a last second jumper. Please live up to our standards and expectations and play as intense as you can. Tigers and Archers, we need you to give us a good game, is all.
So as we head into the deciding game, here are our mga huling habilin to UST and La Salle's key players:
It's up to you, Jeric and Jeron Teng, to anchor your respective teams' offense in the final game of the season. Both of you are going to have to repeat your outstanding scoring performance from Game 2—Jeric finished the game with 28 points, Jeron wasn't too far behind with 19 points and nine boards—and take this sibling rivalry to heart. You've done your daddy proud, boys; now go make sure the rest of the world takes notice.
It's on you, Jason Perkins, to play bigger than your size—and that's saying a lot, considering how physically imposing you are. Invest on putbacks, spend more time on the boards, and protect the paint. Use your heft to carve out space underneath the basket, son. Score like Millsap. Dominate like Sir Charles. Better yet, be your own man. Heck, be a man!
