UAAP Finals: UP got farther because the seniors went the extra mile

Doing extra work beyond regular team practices is a common thing all athletes do - extra skills training over here, extra shooting drills over there. It is always part of the trade. But for a team with a deep-rooted losing culture like the University of the Philippines had six years ago, extra work was not normal. At one point, it was even made fun of. The losing tradition was so deep that going beyond what was required was so foreign to the players. The mindset then was, "You're going to lose anyway, why even try?" It was something that the rookies then - Diego Dario, Gelo Vito, Jarrell Lim, and Paul Desiderio - had trouble understanding. "Before, nung rookies kami, since fresh from high school, masipag kami. Kunwari after training, extra work, shooting-shooting. Pero ang problema namin, tinatago na yung bola [after practice]. Ayaw na kami pag shootingin. Hihiritan pa kami ng seniors namin, 'Oh, baka mag-PBA ka na nyan, itigil mo na yan.' Hindi namin yun ma-gets," Lim shared. "Noon, after ng final huddle, may sisigaw na diyan ng 'Mga bola!!!' So kaming mga bata, wala naman kaming choice, parang ito na, sige na nga," Vito said. But just like any rookie with big dreams, they pressed on and brushed off the jokes of their seniors.  "Nung 'dark days,' after training, wala ng tao sa court, kami na lang! Mga rookies - ako, Jarrell, Gelo. Nagsho-shooting kami, extra work kami," chipped in Dario. In addition to staying after team practices, Dario, Lim, Vito, together with a few older Fighting Maroons created a 6 a.m. workout habit. From the self-initiated morning sessions to the team practices scheduled from the afternoon to the evening, they made sure that they put some extra work in to better their games and to ultimately transform the losing mentality of their team. It all started with a bunch of rookies who were fed up with the nightmare of losing seasons and were hungry for the dream of contention. "Pinromise namin sa isa't isa na ito yung culture na papalitan namin sa UP kasi walang nag-eextra work. Bawal mag-extra work," said Vito. "Even when Coach Bo [Perasol] wasn't here [yet], our batch ni Gelo, Jarrell, all our batchmates made a decision na I think we should change the culture off the court. We should be humble, we haven't reached anything yet, we have to do the work. We made sure even with the younger ones who were coming in, we lead by example," added Dario. During the time they were rookies, UP was a bottom-feeder in the standings and the butt of jokes of other teams. They barely had any financial support and they trained in faulty facilities, but that did not stop them from trusting the process.  After one late night extra work session back in 2014, Dario's father, Edwin, said something that was a vision of the future. It was something that Dario and Vito held on to. "Andun kami sa Old Gym sa labas, may tulo tulo pa yung court," Vito said as he described the lowly state of their only basketball facility then. "Late night, Team A na kami nun, finally. This was few weeks before my dad passed away. Nung nag-eextra work kami, papa told me, 'Yung batch niyo yung magfa-Finals, yung batch niyo ang magdadala sa team sa championship,'" Dario narrated. At that point, it was a vision that sounded so preposterous. From 0-14 to the Finals? What a joke. But for some reason that could only be described by faith, these rookies believed. As Dario put it, "Sa old UP, hindi mo maririnig yung mga ganung pangarap. Pero kaming batch yung nagsimula nung, 'Oh ano, Final Four?' Pinagtatawanan na kami ng mga tao." Despite the faith, the laughs never really went away. From Season 76's 0-14, UP's record in the next years improved, but it was still far from Final Four material, let alone the Finals. UP was still one of the league's whipping boys. They still didn't make it to the Final Four and they were still inconsistent. So much so that it casted doubts on whether Dario, Vito, Lim, and Desiderio should still play their fifth and final years. Dario was mulling over sitting out Season 81 just so he can improve his game on his own. Vito, given all the bigger names entering the team, was considering retiring from playing basketball altogether. Lim was so heartbroken from Season 80's finish that he avoided touching a ball for months. Desiderio was thinking of leaving college basketball early to try getting into the PBA. But they just couldn't let go of the vision they had when they were still rookies - that their batch will reach the Finals, that their batch will change the culture of UP. Fast forward to Season 81, with the help of new recruits, support from management, and a rabid fanbase, their vision turned into reality. "After our Game 2 [versus Adamson in the semifinals], na-realize namin before 'UP Naming Mahal,' ito na yun! Ito na yung sinasabi ni papa! Magfa-Finals na tayo! It's true!" Dario narrated. "May nagtanong sa akin after the semifinals, 'Fifth year ka na, hindi ba parang masakit sayo na you're not playing in those kinds of moments na crucial?' Sabi ko sa kanya, I would never exchange this moment na pumasok kami sa Finals after 32 years for playing time. It's not about yung moment lang na yun eh. Yung process na pinagdaanan namin, para marating yun, naghirap kami nun, it was part of it," Vito added. 'Trust the process' may be one of the most overused phrases of athletes nowadays, but graduating seniors Desiderio, Vito, Lim, and Dario proved that they are the ones who truly know what it means. From being shamed for doing extra work, now, they are proudly wearing a silver medal around their necks. Coming from 0-14, who would have thought and believed? They did. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @the9cruz.....»»

Kai on missed dunk over Majok: 'Sayang konti na lang'

Despite playing only about six minutes against Lebanon, Kai Sotto sure tried to make the most out of his limited action. In the third period of Gilas Pilipinas' practice game against the Lebanese Sunday, 16-year-old Kai tried to dunk on 6'10" Ater Majok. Sotto's two-hand power slam ultimately missed as he was challenged up top and fouled by Majok. The Ateneo high school star got a high five from the Lebanese powerhouse afterwards and made two free throws before he was subbed out. Majok liked what he saw on Kai on even offered some advice on Sotto on how to improve and play international basketball. "He reminds me of a young me," Majok said on Kai. "When I saw him come out, he was little bit nervous so I told him to relax and enjoy the game and I have him a couple of tips. Because skinny guys they tend to get banged around so I showed him a couple of tims where he's more in control of what's going on," he added. As for Sotto's brave attempt to put him on a poster, Majok was cool about it. When reminded that Kai is still only in high school, Lebanon's anchor in the middle was all the more impressed. "He got a little foul, I gave it to him. You know, he's got a bright future," Majok said. "I knew he was young but I didn't know he's in high school. He's gonna be something special. The Philippines has a bright talent ahead of them," he added. Sotto was happy to play against a center the caliber of Majok, saying he's thrilled about the fact that Majok has good words on him. The two had the chance to have a little chat after the game. "Malaking bagay sakin yun kasi natuwa siya," Kai said. "Habang naglalaro kami sinasabihan niya ako na easy lang ako. Kasi alam ng lahat siya gumagawa sa team, so as much as possible, di naman ako star ng team natin, ginagawa ko lahat para ma-stop siya. Binaback-stop ko siya, tinutulak ko siya. Sabi niya: hey easy young fella," he added. As for his dunk attempt on Majok, Kai rues a missed opportunity. "Sabi niya, 'that was a good one!' Sayang konti na lang madadakdakan ko na siya," Sotto said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

UAAP: Don t stop Bo-lieving, hold on to that feeling, UP!

When head coach Bo Perasol exited the dugout of the University of the Philippines inside the MOA Arena last Wednesday, he was serenaded with cheers, applause, and “UP Fight!” A fitting welcome for Coach Bo Perasol from the UP community outside the arena. @abscbnsports pic.twitter.com/3AjE56nGxS — Danine Cruz (@the9cruz) Nobyembre 14, 2018 For the mentor who guided the Fighting Maroons to their first Final Four since 1997, it was nothing but well-deserved. After all, as early as the first round of UAAP Season 81, there were those who were questioning if Coach Bo was the right fit for a State U side with grand plans of breaking through the proverbial glass ceiling. “Yung journey, definitely wasn’t easy,” he told reporters as he looked back at what they went through to get here. This season was always supposed to be when UP ends its 21-year playoff drought. At one point, however, they stood at 3-5, tied for the sixth and seventh spots in the eight-team tournament. Of course, Coach Bo could only admit that then, he himself had doubts. “Pag naririnig niyo akong sinisigawan sila, I wanted to leave them kasi parang iniisip ko, is this worth it? If I keep pushing you then you are not responding, I have an obligation to the community na if I’m not effective as your leader, then I might as well step down,” he shared. He then continued, “This is not about me. This is about winning for the community.” Indeed, the 45-year-old mentor reiterated that ever since he took this post back in 2016, giving the UP community just what they deserved was always his first and foremost goal. As he put it, “Yung burden ko kasi is to win it for the community. There isn’t a push from them na you need to win eh – it’s the other way around.” He then continued, “You see them, you’ve been in UP for a long time, and makikita mong they’re hungry for it. You want it to deliver it to them. Yun yung stress ko, pero alam ko naman na kaya eh.” Now, the Fighting Maroons have proven their coach correct all along – poised to play in their first Final Four game in 21 years. And all of it began because Coach Bo believed – and kept on believing no matter what his doubters said. “Sometimes, you doubt yourself, tao lang tayo eh, but I have to be an example of confidence at what we’ve put it. Mararamdaman natin ang pressure, but you need to go through that para ma-achieve mo yung gusto mo,” he said. With that, the entire Diliman community is, for the first time in a long time, believing – or more pointedly, “Bo-lieving.” For all of those who did not and still do not? “Wala akong masasabi kasi hindi ko naman sila masasagot din eh. Wala akong social media,” the architect of UP’s rebuild said through chuckles. He then continued, “Bahala na lang ang mga players kong sumagot.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PBA: Manuel after beating SMB: 'Finally, naka-isa kami'

Since 2015, Alaska has lost three PBA Finals to San Miguel Beer. Two of those ended in seven games with one being the now-iconic "Beeracle" run for San Miguel. In the other one, the Aces got dominated and were swept by the Beermen in the championship round. Alaska's playoff struggles to San Miguel didn't stop there though. After finally making it back to the semifinals in the 2018 Commissioner's Cup, the Aces ran into the Beermen again. They lost in four games. And so after finally beating San Miguel in the 2018 Governors' Cup quarterfinals, it's not at all surprising that the Aces are savoring this victory. "Sobrang sarap sa pakiramdam kasi nga after ilang series kami nagta-tapat, hindi kami nakaka-isa sa kanila. Finally ngayon, nakakuha kami ng isa," forward Vic Manuel said. "Talagang ang sarap sa pakiramdam na matalo namin sila ngayon. After nung game, during game, parang sobrang emotional na ko eh. Parang gustung-gusto ko talaga manalo, makabawi man lang sa kanila. Nung tumunog na yung buzzer, sobrang saya ko talaga na finally yun, naka-isa kami," he added. Alaska's twice-to-beat edge meant that they only needed one win to eliminate Sn Miguel and th Aces made full use of that. Still, a lot went right for the Aces before they were finally able to take down San Miguel. A signature defensive performance in the third quarter, where they held the Beermen to only seven points, gave Alaska the opening to go for the win. "Talagang ginawa namin yung game plan ni coach," Manuel said. "Talagang nag-focus kami dun. Siguro yun ang naging key para manalo kami ngayon," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
