As I clinched my fist and pumped it in the air as the entire La Salle gallery sang “Hail, Hail, Alma Matter,” in unison, I can’t help but shout “Go La Salle” as a second voice after each stanza of the song. … Yes, like most die-hard Green Archer fan, I was in Araneta to support La Salle specially in the crucial last two minutes of the game and smell the sweet victory after the final buzzer. Securing the second spot is crucial because La Salle gains the twice to beat advantage while Ateneo needs to beat UST to get a chance to play with La Salle again.
I have to congratulate Norman Black and the Ateneo squad for their first win against La Salle under Norman Black as coach in 3 years…. Congratulations is also in order for the wonderful half time show by the Blue Babble Battalion and gang.
Yuchengco Hall crushed our memories of the central gym where all the La Salle Basketball greats used to play…. You would know the Alumni Generation you belong to by the number of buildings and halls you remember.
