UST Growling Tigers Head Coach Official Statement


The UST Growling Tigers had a heartbreaking loss against FEU at the 78th season of UAAP.  Two months after the championship games, the Growling Tigers is facing a controversy. There are issues about hazing, bullying and game-selling. 

As a Thomasian, it is very difficult for me to accept that these things are happening. I don't want to judge any members of the Growling Tigers. I have watched the basketball games and I have witnessed how they've given all that they've got. I know that there were games the star players were not as productive as we expect them to be. But those things happen.

The coach, Bong dela Cruz, is a UST high school star. I know he loves UST as much as we alumni do. I pray that the issues being thrown at him are not true. I would like to share the official statement of Coach Bong dela Cruz.
