UP Fighting Maroons looking for results

Coach: Bo Perasol
Last Season: 5-9 (6th Place)
Holdovers: Paul Desiderio, Diego Dario, Javi Gomez de Liaño, Noah Webb
Additions: Juan Gomez de Liaño, Jun Manzo
Key Losses: Jett Manuel, Dave Moralde

For coach Bo Perasol, it’s high time for University of the Philippines to not settle with just fighting but also start winning.

And this UAAP Season 80, the Fighting Maroons are setting the bar high.

“We really would want to enter and barge into the Final Four. That is really our ambition this season,” he said. “It’s going to be really tough for us, but we have to up the ante in terms of what we want to happen with our program. We were able to get five wins last season so we don’t expect to get a lower win-loss slate this coming season. The logical direction for us is to have that Final Four spot.”

Cebuano scorer Paul Desiderio will lead the Maroons along with uard Diego Dario and sophomore Javi Gomez de Liaño and promising neophytes Juan Gomez de Liaño and Jun Manzo.

Only in his second year at the helm, Perasol is firm in his belief that for the first time in a long time, UP truly has nowhere to go but up.
