Where Were You When Aldeguer Hit The Shot?

September 5, 2017
Where Were You When is a video series from BuhayBasket and SLAM Philippines, presented by Gatorade, that looks back at the most iconic moments in UAAP Basketball. In this first episode, we ask: Where were you when Aldeguer hit the shot?

It’s Game 3, the final game of UAAP Season 62. The winner walks away with the championship; the loser goes home with nothing. The De La Salle Green Archers are down three points on the last possession. Good thing they have Renren Ritualo, one of the best shooters in Philippine basketball. On any given day, he would have been the one to take the game-tying three-pointer to save the team.

October 9, 1999 was not one of those days.

La Salle also has Dino Aldeguer, who in Game 1 airballed a game-tying three-pointer and was a non-factor in Game 2. He is holding the ball at the top of the arc with three seconds left.

He can change DLSU history with one shot. The Shot.

Without hesitation, he takes it. He makes it. The moment becomes one of the greatest in UAAP history.

Where were you when this happened? #WWYW
