Rike doesn’t mind physicality in UAAP but not dirty plays

Troy Rike is never the one to shy away from physicality inside the basketball court. After all, the National University forward relished banging bodies with the likes of June Mar Fajardo and Japeth Aguilar in the Gilas program. What Rike, however, isn't a fan of are the extra curricular motions that are borderline illegal inside the court. The Wake Forest alum said going up against the big men of University of Santo Tomas in the UAAP Season 81 men's basketball tournament introduced him to a brand of rough play that was too dangerous for his liking. "If you chest me I won't like it but I won't complain, but don't go after my knees because that's what I will use to make a l...Keep on reading: Rike doesn’t mind physicality in UAAP but not dirty plays.....»»

Gilas cadet Troy Rike won’t be joining NU in Season 81

Just nearly two months after joining up with National University, Troy Rike said on Thursday that he will not be playing in the looming UAAP Season 81. “Due to factors out of my control, I will not be able to play in UAAP Season 81. The news was devastating to me and I feel great regret that I won’t be able to take the floor with my teammates this season,” the Filipino-American big man said in a statement posted in his Twitter account. It is still unclear what “factors” were “out of his control,” but he made it clear that he remains in NU and remains hopeful to return to action there sooner than later. “It always has been and will always be my dream to play basketball in the Philippines. I hope to be able to pursue that dream here at NU and get back to playing soon,” he said. Rike played for four years for Wake Forest University in the US NCAA before coming back home to the Philippines to suit up for the Gilas cadets in the recently concluded 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup. He already holds a bachelor’s degree from Wake Forest, but has enrolled for a master’s degree in NU. As per UAAP rules, a student-athlete from a non-member school who is pursuing graduate studies in a member school shall not be subject to residency. As a post-graduate student, however, the 22-year-old will only have one year of eligibility for the Bulldogs. Now, it looks like that won’t be happening – in the looming Season 81, at least. Still, Rike showed much gratitude to the Sampaloc-based school in his statement. As he put it, “I would first like to thank NU, my coaches, my teammates, and management for welcoming me with open arms into the community the past couple of months. He then continued, “Although I’ve only been at NU for a short time, it really feels like home and I will always be thankful to have been part of the NU family.” The Gilas cadet then ended his statement by saying he will be cheering on the Bulldogs in the looming Season 81 tipping off on September 8. “I’m behind my teammates 100 percent and I’ll be cheering the squad on all season – no matter where the future may take me,” he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Joyce Bernal: I’m doing Sona as an ‘iskolar ng bayan’

  "I'm not sure if I could call this a directorial job," said film and television director Joyce Bernal of the work she has done for President Duterte's third State of the Nation Address (Sona) on Monday. "I am not actually directing him. He is the President and not an actor," Bernal explained. "I couldn't rehearse with him. Unlike actors, I couldn't just slap him to bring out the emotion I wanted him to feel for a particular scene." Bernal said it was Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Martin Andanar who called her about the assignment. Last week, she visited the House of Representatives, where the Sona was held on Monday. On Saturday, two days ...Keep on reading: Joyce Bernal: I’m doing Sona as an ‘iskolar ng bayan’.....»»
