Ricci Rivero could not help but break down after University of Santo Tomas eliminated University of the Philippines from the race to the UAAP men's basketball finals on Wednesday.
Rivero wept as he prayed in front of an image of Jesus Christ inside the Mall of Asia Arena following the Fighting Maroons' 68-65 loss to UST.
Growling Tigers head coach Aldin Ayo, who mentored Rivero at La Salle where they won a title together, embraced his former player.
"Ginawa mo naman ang lahat," Ayo could be heard saying.
