Arwind Santos cheers victory of 'superstar-less' FEU

MANILA Philippines – It has been well over a decade since Arwind Santos last suited up for Far Eastern University (FEU), but he continues to keep up with his alma mater's campaign in the UAAP.

One of the most dominant players that the UAAP has seen in the last 20 years, Santos led FEU to three UAAP titles before going to have a successful PBA career as well. With the professional league on a break before its 43rd season, however, Santos took the opportunity to watch the Tamaraws play in the Season 80 Final Four against Ateneo de Manila University last Sunday.

Wearing his famed No. 19 FEU jersey, Santos was part of a huge green-and-gold crowd that cheered ecstatically as the Tamaraws stunned the Blue Eagles, 80-67, to force a winner-takes-all game for the last spot in the finals.

"Masarap pagka nanalo," said Santos, whose No. 19 is one of three numbers that FEU has retired. "Ngayon, nanalo, mas masarap 'pag manalo kami sa Wednesday."

"Dumaan sila sa twice-to-beat na kalaban. Alam naman natin na mas masarap talunin 'yung mga ganoon," he added. "Hindi naman imposible 'yun, basta tumibay 'yung trust nila sa isa't isa."
