Heritage rape in Manila: Free Press building demolished, Binondo art-deco landmark to go down

UAAP: Gerry Abadiano is the leader the NU Bullpups deserve

The match-up between Nazareth School of National University and Ateneo de Manila High School last Saturday was heated, to say the least. The rematch between last year’s Finalists featured a total of 77 fouls and 101 free throws. That number of calls led the contest into lasting for two and a half hours. All throughout, though, it was the Bullpups who seemed to be in complete control and ultimately, they tallied a 78-62 takedown of the Blue Eaglets. In the face of the gravity of the match-up, the physicality of both teams, and the difficulty with how the game was called, one NU player proved consistent in making sure his team towed the line. Of course, that player was none other than Gerry Abadiano – a veteran in the UAAP Juniors as well as a stalwart of Batang Gilas. “’Di kami sumuko kahit ganun yung tawag ng mga referee. Kahit naman kasi sa Ateneo, pangit tawag e, pero kami, composed lang kami sa game,” he said afterward. For leading the Bullpups to victory, head coach Goldwin Monteverde was nothing but satisfied with his team captain. “Okay naman ang leadership niya. They were really tested kanina, pero ang maganda, hindi sila nag-give up dahil he kept encouraging his teammates,” he said. Indeed, with all the firepower they have in their arsenal, Coach Gold needs a floor general to see to it that their game plan is followed. And that’s just what Abadiano does. “Matagal na akong kasama ni Coach Gold kaya alam ko na kung anong gusto niya. Lagi ko talagang sinasabi sa mga teammate ko kung anong kailangan nilang gawin,” he shared. That is exactly why the 17-year-old lead guard doesn’t have to be the team’s best scorer, that’s Terrence Fortea, or their best two-way presence, that’s Carl Tamayo. What he has to be is the team leader that makes sure Fortea, Tamayo, and the rest of NU are on their game. “Habang nandito ako, lagi ko silang iga-guide, lagi kong ipapaalala sa kanila to focus lang sa game at maglaro lang nang laro namin,” he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
