We know that most of you are stuck at home during these challenging and unprecedented times. And we also know that you all miss watching live sports.
Given the general uncertainty as to when all leagues shall resume or begin their season, many sports fans are currently content on watching re-runs of past games on TV. There’s also that much talked about “The Last Dance” documentary series which takes us back in time to the 80s and 90s.
For your viewing pleasure, we managed to dig deep in the YouTube archives to collate some past UAAP games of the Green Archers from the late 80s up to the dawn of the new millennium. Don’t expect clear video quality though as they were just recorded on Betamax/VHS tapes (To all millennials reading this, ask your parents what these are)
