Adamson closes out the first round with a 73-68 win over UP
The Adamson University Falcons closed out the first round of the UAAP Season 78 Men's Basketball tournament with a win over the University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons, their first of the season.
The Falcons led almost all of the way, before nearly giving the game up to a UP run late in the fourth.
Fortunately for the league's current cellar-dwellers, they managed to hold on for the win thanks to 26 points from Jerome Garcia and big plays from Joseph Nalos and Jaydee Tungcab down the stretch.
As the seconds ticked away, the Adamson faithful in attendance, who barely filled out a small section of the Mall of Asia Arena, cheered wildly for their Falcons, you would think that the place was packed with Adamson fans.
Adamson will head into the second round of action with momentum from the win, and will look to give their die-hard fans more reasons to cheer in the future.
