Huling hirit! Miro Quimbo wants UP to cheer the loudest for basketball team


Days after a dismal loss to the UST Growling Tigers, this former politiko wanted the UP community to come and cheer for the team louder than ever.

Former Marikina Rep. Miro Quimbo now has more time to spare for school pride as he’s out of politics. His latest fixation: the Fighting Maroons’ bid for another finals appearance, and a chance at the UAAP men’s basketball championship.

“PANAWAGAN sa UP Community. Time to stand together in support of our @upmbt. Our boys deserve a united alumni cheering them on,” Quimbo said.

He didn’t want a repeat of Sunday’s game where he claimed that the yellow fans “outcheered” the maroon crowd in the stands.

Will students and alumni step up?
