Justine Baltazar, John Lloyd Clemente, and Neil Tolentino represent different schools and squads in the UAAP Men's Basketball Tournament.
Still, it wasn't that long ago that they were teammates in Nazareth School of National University's championship teams.
And deep down, all three are and will always be Pampanga's pride - and proud to play for their province as evidenced by their stint for the Delta in the National Basketball League Season 3.
Until now, Balti, JLC, and Tolites remain true to their roots - and when given an opportunity to get away from Metro Manila and the community quarantine brought about by COVID-19, decided to spend their time in Lubao.
There, the collegiate rivals, but good friends bolstered their bond.
Make no mistake, however, they are also taking care of themselves. "Maingat kami rito. Lagi kaming naghuhugas," Tolentino shared.
For sure, De La Salle University, National U, and University of the East have a lot to be thankful to Pampanga for.
