'Atin 'to, papasok 'to' takes on new meaning for Desiderio, UP

MANILA, Philippines – If the UAAP Season 80 Final 4 started today, the University of the Philippines (UP) Fighting Maroons would make it as the third seed.

But it is still very early in the season, and UP has played only three games, not 14. What Paul Desiderio and the Fighting Maroons want to make sure of, is that what holds true for today will still hold true come the final day of the elimination round.

In this regard, the Fighting Maroons are taking heart in Desiderio's now famous proclamation of "Atin 'to, papasok 'to" in their first game of the season, when the UP captain knocked down the game-winning three-pointer to defeat University of Santo Tomas (UST).

"'Atin 'to, papasok 'to' para sa Final 4," said Desiderio of their new battle cry for Season 80. "Sana, makuha namin."

"One game at a time lang," he added. "Dahan-dahan lang, prepare lang ang sarili. Kaya 'yan."
