Albay Vice Governor Edcel Lagman lauded UP Fighting Maroon’s JD Cagulangan for “stealing” the championship from the Ateneo Blue Eagles.

“Ang 5’9” na si JD Cagulangan hindi nanggulang para manalo ang UP sa last second 3-pointer niya. Pwedeng “ninakaw” niya yung laro para mag-champion ang UP laban sa Ateneo,” said Lagman, who obtained his undergrad degree from UP.

“Pero hindi siya literal na magnanakaw, ha? Yung ibang klepto po yun. Lol,” he added.

UP bagged the championship in UAAP Men’s Basketball after beating the Blue Eagles, 72-69 in overtime.

“Maswerte lang talaga itong bagong alamat ng Maroons suot ang jersey no. 13 niya on Friday the 13th. The luckiest day for his team after 36 years of hard luck,” said Lagman.

“Mabuhay ka, Joel! Congratulations, UP! Siguradong hanggang tenga ang mga ngiti nina Benjie Paras, Ronnie Magsanoc at Eric Altamirano. Nasundan yung huling kampeonato ng UP noong 1986 na buhay pa sila! Sa wakas,” he added.
