Fierce on the court, fun off of it.
UST Golden Tigresses libero Bernadett Pepito and NU Lady Bulldogs ace Bella Belen go a long way back. They played volleyball together during their ‘nene days’ of representing the National Capital Region in the Palarong Pambasa. After finding themselves on competing squads in the UAAP, they remain good friends to this day.
On Saturday, both Belen and Pepito were sharing the court once again, not to compete, but to pose for photos at the Shakey’s Super League Pre-Season Championship.
When it was UST’s turn at the mandatory team photos, Belen couldn’t help but zoom in on Pepito—who is looking fine per usual.
“Mas fresh pa sa fresh milk,” Belen wrote on Instagram as she uploaded a video of her volleyball buddy.
Whether Belen means that as a compliment or as a diss remains a mystery, but fans likely won’t mind calling the affable Pepito fresh.
In fact, she knows it, too. The UST floor specialist believes she’s got what it takes to be a crush ng bayan.
One thing’s for sure, the reigning UAAP Best Libero and her squad knows how to win, as proven by their 3-1 victory versus the Perpetual Help Lady Altas at the aforementioned preseason tournament.
Belen and the rest of the UAAP should brace themselves for this UST squad.
