Game Preview: UE Red Warriors vs UP Fighting Maroons

UAAP Season 73 | Game Preview: UE Red Warriors vs UP Fighting Maroons | Round 1


On Saturday, July 31 2010 at the Araneta Coliseum, Coach Lawrence Chongson’s squad, the UE Red Warriors will face the UP Fighting Maroons. Both teams are looking forward to end their own 4 consecutive defeats and to get their 1st win since season 73 had started.

Looking Back: The Red Warriors had done great in their last two games, just to fell short in the last stretch. Always Paul Lee is one man wrecking crew for the Red and White. James Martinez who had struggle in the past 3 games, made an impressive show-off in his game over the NU Bulldogs. Even with a cold performance of the athletic big man Ken Acibar was still able contributed 7 points.

Moving Forward: The Red Warriors welcome back their assistant coach Rene Baena after bailing out the team because of misunderstanding with head coach Lawrence Chongson. But even with the help of Assistant Coach Rene Baena was not enough to give positive result as the Red Warriors went 0-4 in team standings, one of the worst record in Red Warriors’ history. Obviously, there is a sense of concern because this is just the 1st round of elimination and every game now is important if the Red Warriors even wants to enter the Final 4. Mathematically 3 more defeats in all the remaining games. Then, we have to kiss this season goodbye or hold their fate in other teams misery. UE’s perennial problems were already discussed in the previous game previews and reviews, and nothing left for us than to hope and pray that miracle and lady luck would went to the Red Warriors’ big men who cannot even jump, outbox, and give proper screen.

Prediction: A Mark Silungan and A Paul Lee show will certainly this game is heading. So expect that these guys will be heavily guarded. The UP Fighting Maroons obviously have more edge over the UE Red Warriors, they have a core veteran line-up that are very experience inside the court. The Red Warriors should also take a note on Magi Sison for no one in the UE squad can match his presence inside the paint. The perimeter shooting of their guards and forwards should never be taken for granted. Regarding coaching issues, we don’t care the coaching problem over UP as we have still to solve ours.

Keep in mind the difference between a winner's and a loser's mentality. Winners focus on winning big—not just how to win, but how to win big. Losers, however, don't focus on losing; they just focus on getting by!


Each Warrior wants to leave the mark of his will, his signature, on important acts he touches. This is not the voice of ego but of the human spirit, raising up and declaring that it has something to contribute to the solution of the hardest problems, no matter how vexing!
