I don’t particularly like kicking other teams when they’re down, but coming into yesterday’s game against UP I wasn’t concerned whether the Green Archers would come away with a win or not.
The UP Fighting Maroons nailed three shots from rainbow country in the second quarter, two by sophomore Henry Asilum and another one by Martin Pascual that sailed through the net as the halftime buzzer sounded, handing them a seven-point lead, 42-35, as both teams headed to their respective locker rooms.
Right after yesterday’s win that enabled the Green Archers to brush away a huge monkey off their back, there was one play that stood out for me the most.
With our collective adrenaline hoop levels just starting to return to normalcy after the sublime 2-week Gilas experience, one just has to shake his head and admit that there’s nothing like starting the delayed second round with a win courtesy of a game-clinching shot in overtime.
