Rivero: La Salle gave everything

As confetti rained on new UAAP men’s basketball champion Ateneo, La Salle’s Rivero brothers stayed and hugged on court.

It was a poignant moment that similarly happened in Game 2, where Prince tried to straighten up his younger brother Ricci, who picked up his fourth foul early but later recovered in the second half to help the Green Archers force a decider.

This time, it was Ricci who tried to console a devastated Prince after the Green Archers bowed to the Blue Eagles, 88-86, in the thrilling do-or-die Game 3 showdown on Sunday.

“It’s really hard,” admitted Ricci. “We know there are ups and downs, and now, we’re down. We just have to think of ways to recover.”

The Archers had a strong shot at winning their second straight crown, before the Eagles unleashed a 14-2 run to take a double-digit advantage, 80-70, going into the last four minutes.
