The UP Lady Maroons currently own a share of the lead in the UAAP season 81 women's volleyball tournament after their pulsating five-set win over the defending champion DLSU Lady Spikers.
From missing the Final Four last season, the Diliman-based squad is slowly proving that they are on their way up.
More than their record, however, the Lady Maroons' improved play and the movement on the court has brought hope to the UP community, as well as their fans.
And as it turns out, among UP's fanbase is Kapamilya star Kim Chiu.
