Rondina at loss for words after UST’s fourth straight loss
Cherry Rondina has established herself as one of the UAAP’s most animated players, be it on the floor and off of it.
She usually screams for joy whenever she scores a point, sometimes an angry growl, and she once sang in front of the media when University of Santo Tomas lost in the Final Four of Season 79.
That energy, however, was missing when the Golden Tigresses lost to University of the East, 25-23, 18-25, 28-25, 26-24, in the second round of Season 80.
This was the first time that UST lost to UE since Season 56, and Rondina was lost for words.
“I really can’t say anything,” said Rondina in Filipino Wednesday at Filoil Flying V Centre. “Well, we’ll just fight on whatever games we have left.”
“We’ll just fight for ourselves and fight for our university.”
The loss sent UST skidding to their fourth straight loss and a 2-6 record, a precarious place where one loss could ultimately eliminate the Golden Tigresses from the Final Four race.
