ROBI Domingo and Gretchen Ho get to hang out with Filipino basketball icon Danny Ildefonso as their campus tour in the show “University Town” makes a stop at National University this Sunday on S+A and S+A HD at 1pm.

A pride of NU and a former UAAP star, Danny introduces to Robi and Gretchen his son Shaun, who recently transferred to the Bulldogs’ bastion in the hope of following his dad’s footsteps. The duo will also meet other great Bulldogs, Gelo Alolino and Glenn Khobuntin, who are members of the Season 77 champion team.

This is the third leg of the “University Town” this season, which is on its second year of featuring the eight schools competing in the country’s premier collegiate league.

Also featured in the NU special is Bulldogs’ best man on the football pitch, Mark Marcaida, a partially deaf and mute player who proudly wears NU’s colors in the UAAP Football competition. What makes Mark greater in the eyes of his peers is his ability to pick up game plans and execute them despite his handicap, as well as being able to juggle the life of a student and athlete who lives far away from his hometown in Masbate.

“U-Town’s” latest episode also gives the spotlight to members of the different competing teams of NU in the UAAP that have been dominant in their disciplines and has shone for the NU athletic program like the Women’s Basketball Team, their Lawn Tennis representatives, the Cheerdance squad, and their Badminton shuttlers.

Don’t miss the chance to get to know more about the NU Bulldogs and their competitive spirit as a community as Robi and Gretchen come down to Recto and tour with “U-Town” on S+A and S+A HD this Sunday at 1 p.m. with a replay on Monday (July 24) at 8 p.m. For more information and stories, visit ABS-CBN’s sports hub sports.abs-cbn.com and follow @ABSCBNSports on Facebook and Twitter.
