Grand Slam Buddies: Coach Tim crushed with news of Coach Aric s passing

Coach Aric Del Rosario was so good he had a hand in building two separate basketball dynasties that somehow overlapped. As Del Rosario won the UST Growling Tigers four straight UAAP titles from 1993-1996, Aric Magic was also present in the third-ever Grand Slam team in the PBA. Coach Aric was one of the assistants to head coach Tim Cone in 1996 when the Alaska Aces swept the PBA season to capture the triple crown. In fact, Coach Aric was Coach Tim's first-ever assistant when he took over the Alaska job some seven years prior to the Grand Slam win. And with the passing of Coach Aric Thursday, Cone is obviously one of the most affected. "It is just crushing news to me," Coach Tim said on the news of Del Rosario's passing. "Especially at this time when I cannot pay my respects to him and his family [due to COVID-19 and community quarantine]. He was such a steadying influence on me when I was a young coach. He always kept me grounded and taught me so much about humility," Cone added. With 22 PBA titles and two Grand Slam wins, Cone is without a doubt he greatest coach in league history. I'm broken up because of the loss of Coach Aric. I am so sorry I can't pay my respects to him and his family. He was such an influence early in my coaching career, teaching me about humility and compassion. He touched so many lives through his journey. He will be terribly missed. — Tim Cone (@manilacone) March 26, 2020 However, Coach Tim says that one of his first mentors in the PBA deserves more credit than what he originally had in terms of being one of the coaching greats in the country. "The winning he accomplished at UST and the players he touched was unsurpassed," Cone said of Coach Aric. "His humility and low-key personality prevented him from being on that conversation of the best coaches of the country. But that was wrong, he was incredibly underrated and certainly should have been. He was truly a great coach and a better friend," Coach Tim added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE in Singapore to be a closed door event

ONE Championship recently announced that the company has made the decision to convert one of its live events into a closed-door event. ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE, which is scheduled for Friday, 28 February in Singapore is to proceed as planned, but the Singapore Indoor Stadium will be closed off to fans and media. The decision was made with regards to the situation in Singapore surrounding the Novel Coronavirus (official name COVID-19).  Singapore’s Ministry of Health recently raised its Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON) level from yellow to orange after having confirmed 75 cases of infection. ONE Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong made the announcement to convert their event in Singapore to a closed-door event initially on his social media accounts. Shortly after, Sityodtong fielded questions from the media on a global conference call. “In light of the coronavirus situation in Singapore, I have made the decision to convert ONE: King of the Jungle on February 28 into a closed event for broadcast only. The Singapore Indoor Stadium will not be open to the general public, but the event will proceed behind closed doors as scheduled live on all TV and digital platforms across 150+ countries around the world,” Sityodtong wrote on his official Facebook page. Fans who purchased tickets to the event will be given a full refund through Sportshub Tix, ONE’s official ticketing partner in Singapore. All bouts are to proceed as scheduled, and will still be available live via TV and digital platforms worldwide, as well as through the ONE Super App. The main event of ONE: KING OF THE JUNGLE will see two-sport ONE World Champion Stamp Fairtex of Thailand defend her ONE Atomweight Kickboxing World Title against Janet “J.T.” Todd of the United States. In the co-main event of the evening, reigning ONE Strawweight Kickboxing World Champion Sam-A Gaiyanghadao of Thailand will take on Lachlan “Rocky” Ogden of Australia for the ONE Strawweight Muay Thai World Title. Representing Singapore on the global stage is former ONE World Title challenger Amir Khan, who is accompanied by fellow Singaporean stars Tiffany “No Chill” Teo and Radeem Rahman. In addition, Singapore-based athletes Troy Worthen and Ritu “The Indian Tigress” Phogat are set to see action. “We just felt that this was an incredible moment for us to ignite hope and strength across the continent of Asia and to our fans all over the world during this difficult time,” Sityodtong said during the global conference call. “I also want to say that it is only by love, compassion, and resilience that Singapore as a country and Asia as a continent can overcome and conquer the Coronavirus.” Sityodtong also says that while Singapore will proceed with its closed-door event, other events the organization has scheduled in other countries will proceed as planned. ONE Championship remains firm in its promise to deliver at least 50 events this year across all of its properties, and will make decisions to alter its events based on various factors as situations change. “It was not an easy decision for us. In fact, many people were pushing us to cancel the event. But I thought back to why I started ONE Championship in the first place. And our mission since day one has been to unleash real-life superheroes who ignite the world with hope, strength, dreams, and inspiration,” Sityodtong continued. “It’s a very different mission than all of our other global competitors. Yes we want to put on the greatest fights. Yes, we have the greatest martial artists in the world but there’s a deeper mission for ONE Championship. And in a time of crisis, in a time of fear in the continent of Asia, our heroes are ready to inspire the world.”.....»»
