They were rivals in college, but UAAP champions Michele Gumabao and Dennise Lazaro did not let the rivalry prevent them from being sisters who got each other’s back on the hardcourt.

Gumabao and Lazaro are not teammates in SuperLiga team Cocolife, and the two-time UAAP Best Receiver Lazaro made it a point to express her love for the former UAAP Finals MVP who just celebrated her 25th birthday.

Gumabao responded that she loves Lazaro just as much.

Your friendship is just so sweet, ladies!
