There’s just something about the UST Growling Tigers that motivates Kirk Long to perform well.
It was in the second round meeting of the Blue Eagles and the Tigers about two years ago when Long fortunately nailed a buzzer beater over the outstretched arms of UST’s superman Jervy Cruz for the win. Ateneo was trailing throughout the entire match.
Recently, Long shot a career high of 21 points against the UST Growling Tigers, again in their second round meeting.
Hopefully he improves in the coming seasons.
Off-court however, Long gained that swagger and confidence, leaving behind the shy and stuttering freshman from Faith Academy. Such a cutie!
