UAAP Season 76: Following The Games Online

It's not the ideal way to catch the games, but you can follow GMA News Online's live-scoring if you can't watch the UAAP Men's basketball tournament live at the game venues or on television, or if the available online livestream is slow). Sometimes the person/s updating the scores get caught up in the game too. Check out these score updates from the ADMU–UST game earlier today. The elation at big plays leaps off the (web) page.

[Post 750] UAAP Season 76: Opening Day Scenes



I didn't get to watch it, but the Season 76 opening ceremony gets a thumbs-up, if only because it featured Philippine Basketball Association greats and former San Miguel Beer court generals Hector Calma and Olsen Racela (who rocked an Ateneo jacket  like a boss).
