Desiderio struggles, praises ‘great defender’ Dennison in UP loss to FEU

Paul Desiderio and Ron Dennison have a long history together.

The two were teammates in University of Visayas and entered the UAAP in Season 76 and have crossed paths ever since.

But their duel has been one-sided and the trend continued on Sunday when Dennison led Far Eastern University, 78-57, over Desiderio’s University of the Philippines in the first round of the UAAP Season 80 men’s basketball tournament.

Desiderio, who was averaging 21 points a game heading into the matchup, ran into Dennison and FEU and he had little to show with only nine points on 4-of-12 shooting from the field.

“I was expecting Dennison to come out like that,” said Desiderio in Filipino. “He knew everything that I was going to do, and I really struggled on offense.”
