MANILA, Philippines - All good things come to an end, and luckily for the UP Fighting Maroons, so too do the bad.
It had been 720 days since the University of the Philippines men's basketball team had savored victory and the wait only seemed to make the jubilation that much more enjoyable. When the final buzzer rang with UP leading the Adamson University Soaring Falcons 77-64, the UP contingent at the Mall of Asia Arena erupted.
Led by Mikee Reyes' 28 points and JR Gallarza's 24, the Fighting Maroons halted their losing streak at 27 in the battle of winless squads to close out their UAAP Season 77 first round campaign with a bonfire to look forward to. (FULL STORY: UP ends two-year losing skid with rout of Adamson)
