Tigresses want to spoil UP's Final Four party

Carmela Tunay and the Golden Tigresses want to make an already confusing Final Four race a little crazier.
One of the most feared UAAP teams in the past, the UST Golden Tigresses have struggled to find success in the last couple of years.
And after failing to meet huge expectations this season, missing the Final Four for a fourth straight year, Espana's finest are reduced into the role of party spoilers as they try to prevent one team from entering the playoffs.
"It seems na mukhang ako lang yung may gustong mag-finals appearance, pero hindi ko naman pwedeng ipilit yung sa akin lang," head coach Emilio "Kung Fu" Reyes said as his first season out of a successful high school stint ended up being a bummer.
With another game before formally ending Season 78, the Tigresses want to make the already confusing Final Four picture a little more crazier.
Misery loves company right?
"Last game, ang aim na lang namin is mang-gulo kami sa standings," Kung Fu added as UST hopes to make life touger on the young UP Lady Maroons.
For senior Carmela Tunay, every game still counts and she would obviously like to at least cap her collegiate career with a win.
And of course once again, misery loves company.
"Hindi naman kami supposedly naglalaro lang para sa sarili namin, give tribute pa din for the school, syempre maglaro para sa UST," she said.
"Kung hindi man namin na-fulfill yung makasali sa Final Four, siguro makigulo na lang kami yun yung goal," she added.
"Syempre kahit hindi naman namin yun gawin for them [UP] para magulo sila, parang para sa sarili na lang din namin, sa kung anong maiiwan sa team. Para pa din kaming panalo kasi na-close namin yung season na panalo."
