Something miraculous happened today: the UP men’s basketball team won the first two consecutive games of the season, which hasn’t happened since 2005; and they beat DLSU for the first time in six years.

This win can’t just be luck, it’s most definitely a combination of better coaching, individually talented individuals, teamwork, and rigorous training. It’s been years, but that just goes to show that excellence isn’t immediate: it’s earned through hard work, one day at a time. I hope they keep up this trend; nevertheless, I’m keeping this memento of how, in my lifetime, UP was on top of the basketball leaderboards of the UAAP! 😉
Tomorrow, I’m beginning a battle of my own.
