UP’s ‘short-shorts’ fad just a wardrobe mishap


UP Fighting Maroons went old school with their shorts.

The Diliman-based squared garnered a lot of attention with their “short-shorts” uniform during their opening matchup against FEU Tamaraws on Wednesday.

However, it was a just a uniform mishap according to UP head coach Bo Perasol, and he also admitted that the 70s-inspired aparrel became a distraction for most of his players.

“That was a distraction for them in the beginning. I told them we have to go through that,” Perasol told reporters.

“Also, it was just a lapse.”

Fortunately, the Fighting Maroons were able to slither past the Tams with a 61-55 victory.

However, fans from Twitter would blew up the moment they saw UP’s unconventional shorts, and some of them were satisfied on what they saw.

Will the UP squad embrace the short-shorts fad? We’ll see about that!
