NCAA: Jed Mendoza’s cry just may be a rallying cry for JRU

The cheers rained down on Jose Rizal University as it scored its first win – on the basketball court, that is – on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Struggling for all of the first round of the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament, those cheers was all Heavy Bombers top gun Jed Mendoza wanted to hear. “Alam ni Lord, alam ng team na gustong-gusto kong manalo. Every game naman, binibigay ko lahat,” he said. Mendoza and his teammates lost all of their first seven games before a league ruling overturned one of their losses and turned their 0-7 record to 1-6 last Thursday. A day later, Mendoza and his teammates were celebrating their first win – on the basketball court, that is. That is even truer as throughout their terrible start to the season, Mendoza has been at the receiving end of heavy criticism. And so, when that final buzzer sounded, the third-year guard could only let out all those tears. “Parang nabawasan ako ng tinik sa dibdib talaga. Ngayon kasi, pag sinabi na JRU, ako nagre-represent e as captain ball and superstar,” he shared. He then continued, “Parang pag binabatikos yung team, ako kaagad e,” he shared. That was why from start to finish of their school hymn, he was crying and pointing at the JRU crowd. “Hindi na para sa akin ‘to, para kay Lord na ‘to, para sa team, para masuklian ko yung binibigay nila coach. Nahihiya na rin kasi kami sa JRU community na todo-suporta pa rin sila,” he said. While he was doing that, his father figure on the team was fighting back tears of his own. “Hindi ako naiyak sa panalo e. Dito ako naiyak,” head coach Vergel Meneses told reporters, referring to Mendoza who was sitting beside him in their first post-win interview in the season. He then continued, “Nakita kong gustong manalo talaga e. I hope yung ibang players ko, madala rin yun.” All season long, coach Vergel has been preaching patience and perseverance for his rebuilding crew. “Nakita ko pa lang sa Filoil (Preseason), prangka na ako sa kanila at sinasabi kong swerte na tayong manalo ng tatlo o apat,” he shared. That is exactly why the Philippine basketball legend, always the competitor, changed up his coaching style for this season. For example, in one instance in the endgame, Mendoza was forced into a turnover which then led to a timeout for Emilio Aguinaldo College. Instead of giving him a scolding, however, the usually fiery coach Vergel just kissed him on the head. All of this, the Heavy Bombers’ mentor understood, will just be part of their process. “We take all the criticism as a challenge. Naging constructive criticism na lang that will help us,” he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

La Salle finishes fourth in South Korean tournament

While De La Salle University fell short of a podium finish in the 2018 Asia Pacific University Challenge, the experience they earned there will still go a long way as they commence a new era. The Green Archers fell to host Yonsei University, 80-92, last Saturday to wind up their campaign with a 2-3 record. That standing was only good for fourth-place in the invitational. Still, the Taft-based team welcomes the promising showings from the likes of scoring dynamo Aljun Melecio, hardworking forward Santi Santillan, and super rookie Encho Serrano. “Malaking tulong ‘to sa amin cause, first of all, we all know na yung team na ‘to is rebuilding so kailangang mabuo namin yung confidence namin sa isa’t-isa,” Melecio shared. He then continued, “Both on and off the court, yun yung nagawa namin.” In particular, Serrano, playing for the first time in green and white, showed several flashes of why he was once considered the top high school player in the country. “Masarap at masaya na makapaglaro na finally sa La Salle. Sobrang thankful ko rin kasi big experience para sa aking makalaro at makalaban yung mga team sa ibang bansa,” he said. A fully healthy team captain Kib Montalbo, who sat out much of the 2018 Filoil Preseason due to injury, was also a welcome sight. “Man’s greatest victory is to conquer himself. We learned a lot about mental toughness there,” he remarked. Now, La Salle will bring that experience to the looming UAAP Season 81. The Green Archers opened the tournament with back-to-back wins against Japan and Chinese Taipei before falling to UC Irvine, Russia-select, and Yonsei. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Volleyball star De Guzman shows hops with double-handed slam

With the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference, still a couple of months away, power-hitting John Vic De Guzman keeps on balling. The men’s national team skipper showed his leaping ability but this time in a different kind of ball game. De Guzman, also an actor, during a shoot for a scene in a short film made a slick double-handed slam dunk off a bounce after an own lob.           He didn’t need no double or any adjustment with the hoop, the guy just got hops. Aside from excelling in volleyball, the former NCAA Most Valuable Player from College of St. Benilde is also regular fixture in barangay cage leagues in his hometown in Calamba City, Laguna.   The PLDT Home Fibr team captain and product endorser this offseason is busy with his showbiz career, shooting a short film set to be released online on August 30 and will be entered in international film fests and a couple of full-length movies expected to be included in the Metro Manila Film Festival......»»

“Can Aby your boyfriend?”: How Robert Bolick won Aby Maraño’s heart

Aby Maraño is everything you want in an athlete. She’s strong, driven and passionate about her sport. So, when basketball player Robert Bolick saw her play volleyball for the first time…he saw himself. The only difference was she was a three-time champion, two-time MVP and team captain, while he was merely a rookie and a bench warmer. Robert was also three years younger than her. Aby was way out of his league, it seemed. But, this young man was no loser. He was determined to shoot his shot and find some way to win her heart. His first move was to ask for a little favor from his former teammate, LA Revilla, who was the starting point guard of the DLSU Men’s Basketball team at the time. Robert needed LA to find out whether Aby had a boyfriend. Like he usually does on the hardcourt, LA delivered an assist to Robert in form of good news - Aby was single. Now, that Robert knew that his target was open, all he had to do was take a shot. And he took it at the most unexpected of moments. They were inside the school bus on the way back to DLSU after a Green Archers game in the UAAP. Aby, who was undergoing her on-the-job training with ABS-CBN Sports, the official broadcast partner of the league, hitched a ride with the team. There was a lot of joking among his teammates, but all Robert could think of was the soothing smell of Aby’s hair as he was seated right behind her. It was at that moment when Robert decided to crack a joke of his own. “Oy, Pre! Makinig kayong lahat!” announced Robert before motioning towards Aby. “Aby ka ba? Can Aby your boyfriend?” The entire bus erupted. It was as if they were back inside the MOA Arena where fans where screaming their lungs out. Robert looked at Aby’s face and sensed a positive reaction to his sudden revelation. “Ay. Parang kinilig ah,” he thought. As soon as they got off the bus, Robert and Aby shared their first dinner. When it was time to go home, Robert reminded Aby to take care and that they should continue communicating. “Text, text na lang tayo! Text mo ako ha.” he told her. “Paano kita ite-text? Wala naman akong number mo,” she replied. Little did Aby know that Robert didn’t ask for her number directly to avoid getting “busted.” His game plan worked as they started talking and spending time with each other more often. Upon Aby’s advice, Robert even asked her coach, the multi-titled Ramil de Jesus for permission to court her. Although Robert admitted that he was intimidated at first, he knew that he had no choice but to ask for Coach Ramil’s blessing to ensure a smooth passage to Aby’s heart. “Para sa akin naman, wala namang dapat katakutan pag alam mo na gusto mo talaga. Gusto ko naman si Aby eh.” Today, August 8, 2018, Robert and Aby are celebrating their 5th year anniversary together. A lot has happened in their lives since then. Robert has transformed himself into an accomplished athlete like Aby, winning three championships (1 UAAP title with La Salle, 2 NCAA titles with San Beda), a PBA D-League championship and MVP award among many accolades. They both have also become national team athletes as Robert was included in the “23 for 23” Gilas Pilipinas roster for the 2023 FIBA World Cup while Aby was named Captain of the Philippine Women’s Volleyball Team. “Hindi niya ako minahal dahil magaling ako mag-basketball. Minahal nga niya ako na bangko pa lang ako,” said Robert as he reminisced about everything he has been through with Aby throughout the past five years. While watching their careers blossom, following their love story is equally entertaining. The two are very open with regards to how they feel about each other. Aby even proudly declared during an interview on “Down the Line” that she would agree to marry Robert is ever he proposed to her.   We throw it back to an episode of #DownTheLinePH when @MrPureBusiness and @denniselazaro asked about Robert popping the big question to Tyang Aby! — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) August 8, 2018 Despite Robert and Aby being just 22 and 25 years old respectively, marriage has been a topic of conversation between the couple. “Sinasabi na nga niya sa akin na gusto niya na ‘Maraño-Bolick’ pag naglalaro siya,” revealed Robert. “Sabi ko naman sa kanya, ‘Take time lang. Total, five years na tayo magkasama. Di naman natin kailangan madaliin yan. Focus ka lang muna sa kung saan ka ngayon. Eventually, pag nag propose na ako, gusto ko yung ready ka na magka-anak.’” One of Robert’s biggest dreams in life is to be able to play with his future kids as a young father, preferably in his 20s. “Dream ko talaga na while naglalaro ako, makakalaro ko yung anak ko,” said Robert. “Kung magka-lalaki man lang ako, whatever na sport ang gusto niya, makakalaro ko man lang siya. Makaka-takbo-takbo man lang ako.” “Sabi ko kay Aby, ‘Tell me pag ready ka na.’” Only God knows what the future holds for these college sweethearts. But, right now, the King Lion and Tyang Aby are living their best lives. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!  .....»»
