Someone really loves the UP Fighting Maroons so much!

A Twitter user named @angkee named her five adorable puppies after the famous key figures from the UP men’s basketball team — one of which were Bright (Akhuetie), Javi (Gomez De Liaño), Bo (Perasol), Mikee (Reyes), and Cap (Paul Desiderio).

Even the UP import himself gave her the seal of approval.

It is no surprise that the UP Fighting Maroons have become a huge phenomenon after advancing in the Finals for the first time in 32 years.
