Father-daughter Richard and Juliana Gomez came to support their school, the University of the Philippines (UP), at the recent basketball semi-finals match of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) tournament.
They cheered for the UP Fighting Maroons in a crucial game against the University of Sto. Tomas (UST) Growling Tigers. Richard is a UP graduate, while Juliana is currently studying in the Diliman campus and training with the volleyball team UP Lady Fighting Maroons.
In between cheering for the team, they posed for selfies and Richard reconnected with Gilbert Remulla, his former teammate from the UP College of Mass Communication basketball team.
UP had a twice-to-beat advantage, but in the end, UST won both games, with game two ending at 68-65. Richard said, “Maybe next year will be a better year for the Maroons. It was a good fight!”
