MANILA - His team may have lost the game, but Calvin Abueva sure felt the love and support of his friends.

"It's Showtime" host Vice Ganda, together with Ryan Bang and Karylle, supported Abueva on Friday's PBA quarterfinals game Between Phoenix Fuel Masters and Meralco Bolts at the Araneta Coliseum.

Meralco pulled off an improbable 108-103 overtime win to unseat a second-seeded Phoenix in the PBA Governors Cup.

After the match, Abueva was seen taking off his jersey and giving it to Vice.

He also received a hug and a kiss on the cheek from his "sweet friend."

In a post on his Instagram Story, Vice also showed off the jersey he got from Abueva.

Vice and Abueva have been vocal about their close relationship. The former, however, clarified that they are just friends.

According to Vice, Abueva is not afraid to be seen with him, unlike many of his other basketball player friends.
