Preview: UP vs. Adamson

One of the most highly-anticipated matchups in the opening games is between the University of the Philippines (UP) Fighting Maroons and the Adamson University Soaring Falcons.

Both teams have their own narratives, aspirations, and a burning desire to excel in this new season.

The UP Fighting Maroons, led by coach Goldwin Monteverde, are determined to bounce back after a heartbreaking loss in the Finals of the previous season.

In Season 85, UP made it all the way to the championship series but fell short against Ateneo in a thrilling contest that ended 2-1 in favor of the Blue Eagles. Now, UP is looking to recapture the glory they tasted when they clinched the championship in Season 84.

The Adamson Soaring Falcons enjoyed a triumphant return to the Final Four last season after a four-year absence from the playoffs.

This achievement was a testament to their growth and development as a team under the leadership of Coach Nash Racela. In UAAP Season 86, the Falcons have their sights set on climbing even higher and possibly securing a championship berth.

UP is eager to redeem themselves, while Adamson aims to continue their upward trajectory in the league. This matchup promises to be a showcase of skill, strategy, and the unwavering spirit of UAAP basketball.

Will UP make a triumphant return to the championship stage, or will Adamson build on their recent success and reach new heights?

One thing is certain: UAAP basketball is back, and the excitement is evident as these two teams clash in pursuit of redemption and glory.
