The De La Salle Green Archers earn a ticket to the PCC Sweet 16 as they defeated the UNC Grey Hounds 91-38 today in Naga City. Placing 6th in this past UAAP Season, the Archers had to go the extra mile in order to have shot in defending their title in this nationwide collegiate tournament. The team breezed past the opposition in this 3-day Zonal meet.
What really made news is not the Archer’s dominance in this event but perhaps the lavish treatment they got from the people of Naga who watched the games. Throughout their stay there, the team was constantly mobbed by fans like they were some rock stars. How they were adored back there just shows that the popularity of the Archers is not only limited to the school community but also to the many people around the country.
The Sweet 16 starts Nov 23 in Manila. It’s now Win or Go Home from hereon.
