For Robert Bolick, championship starts and ends with mom

Heading into Game 2 of the Finals, with San Beda College needing one more win for back-to-back championships, Robert Bolick did not get a good night’s sleep. “Hindi ako makatulog kagabi,” he told reporters as the Red Lions still found themselves down 1-2 in the season series against Lyceum of the Philippines University. Good thing then that the 23-year-old had his lifelong comfort zone there with him. “Dasal lang ako nang dasal. Katabi ko nanay ko, dasal lang kami nang dasal,” he said. Apparently, the prayers worked as he scored seven points in the last five minutes to lead the defending champions in blanking the Pirates in the championship round. In the end, he had 18 points, six assists, and five rebounds and was one of the major reasons in the Mendiola-based squad’s 10th title in the last 12 years – and 21st overall. “Kapag nanonood si mom, talagang ibibigay mo ang best mo,” he said afterward. Not long after, Bolick was celebrating with the very same person who gave birth to him. “I just want to thank my mom. Simula sa pagiging bench player ko, she buys me shoes kahit wala kaming pera, she buys me gatas para mainom ko,” he shared, in front of the crowd at the Araneta Coliseum and for everybody watching. Through those words, the Ormoc, Leyte native was clutching his mom at his side. To top it all off, he had one more message for Zeny Bolick. “I love her to death,” he expressed. And so, Robert Bolick’s championship-winning Thursday essentially began with his mom by his side. And soon enough, Robert Bolick’s championship-winning Thursday essentially ended with his mom by his side. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

She s always telling me to bring out my A-game -- Bolick

Robert Bolick credited San Beda coach Boyet Fernandez, his Red Lions teammates and even his mother Zeny for inspiring him to work hard and deliver in the 93rd NCAA Finals series against Lyceum of the Philippines University. But the proud son of Ormoc, Leyte gave special thanks to the person who pushed him to unleash his “beast mode” when needed the most. He was grateful to have his long-time girlfriend Aby Marano by his side to motivate and boost his confidence. Unfortunately, Marano missed San Beda’s 92-82 Game 2 win at the Big Dome Thursday as she had a scheduled match in the 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix held at FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. “Of course, si Aby. (Sayang) may game siya,” said Bolick, who had 18 points including the dagger trey in the closing stretch of the match.  “She's always telling me, when it comes to championships, you have to bring out your A-game always,” he added. “Kahit siya, nagagalit siya sa akin. Dalawa ang nagagalit sa akin, si Coach Boyet, tapos pag-uwi ko sa bahay, si Aby naman,” Bolick joked drawing a good laugh from reporters inside the press room during the postgame interview. “But you know, inspired lang,” he added. Marano, who watched the series opener last Friday, may have missed the game but the couple will definitely have a double celebration after her team F2 Logistics kept its unbeaten slate intact with a straight sets win over Generika-Ayala.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
