As campaign season heats up, it pays to know where our candidates stand on several issues that Filipinos confront. After all, they are wooing us for our votes. If we do not know how they stand on things that matter to us, we cannot make an informed decision on who to vote for on May 13.

For many young people, getting into UP is a dream come true. Aside from the chance of getting a UP education, there is always excitement about turning over a new leaf, brandishing newfound freedom as one takes a step towards college life far away from the usual humdrum of their provincial hometowns. Independence, at last!
Although Bright Akhuetie managed to get the crowd going with the first shot for UP, Blue Eagles Kakou Koume and Anton Asistio were quick to follow through and establish a lead. Top-scorer Juan Gomez De Liano and Paul Desiderio amped up their defense, alongside the Gelo Vito and Jun Manzo tandem that earned them a two-point advantage. Blue Eagle Thirdy Ravena put a stop to UP's short-lived lead, bringing the score to 15-15 before timeout.
De Liano (Juan) and Akhuetie opened the first quarter with back-to-back shots, signaling a good start for UP despite UE’s Alvin Pasaol threatening to break through their progress. The first quarter ended at 12-7, in favor of the UP dribblers.
