Supreme Court (SC) Justice Marvic Leonen has issued his dissenting opinion on the outcome of the University of the Philippines (UP) Fighting Maroons and University of the Santo Tomas (UST) Growling Tigers semifinals elimination match for the basketball crown.
The UP alumni reacted to the declaration of UST alumni Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta that the Growling Tigers will defeat the Maroons
“I am confident that the true facts of this controversy will be proven without a shadow of the doubt within the next few days. #UPFight,” read Leonen’s Twitter post on Friday (Nov. 8).
The twice-to-beat Maroons will be facing the Tigers this Sunday (Nov. 10) in the seminals.
The team who will win will be going to the finals and challenge defending champion Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles.
The Blue Eagles has been men’s basketball champion of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) for two consecutive years.
