Jett Manuel proud of his boys as UP finally makes UAAP Final Four

Although not being able to personally bring the UP Fighting Maroons to the UAAP Final Four, Jett Manuel was just as happy as he learned of his team's feat. The boys from Diliman have made the postseason for the very first time since 1997, when they were led by the late Bryan Gahol, Joseph "Ogie" Gumatay, and Paolo Mendoza.  Since then, the squad has experienced heartbreak for the next two decades, including a few winless seasons. Manuel, who donned the maroon and white from 2010-16 was not spared from UP's mediocrity, compiling an overall 10-60 record in his five-year playing career, including two 0-14 seasons and the infamous UAAP Season 77 bonfire back in 2014, which celebrated their only win of the campaign. The former team captain admitted that he was following the game while his team, Ginebra, was at shootaround at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum, trying to keep their season alive, facing archrivals Magnolia in Game 4 of the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup semifinals. "Well, I was secretly following the game throughout my pre-game preparation. Di nga ako nag-pre-game shooting para mapanood ko yung game," Manuel shared. UP was already up by 23 when the opening jump took place for Game 3, so Manuel had a good feeling his alma mater had made it and never knew the actual final results until much later. Despite not leaving the bench the entirety of the game, Manuel went home a happy man as the Fighting Maroons downed the DLSU Green Archers, 97-81, while Ginebra forced a Game 4, 107-103. "I’m sad na I wasn’t there in person, but at least I got the win here today." But before some of his former teammates, now the veterans of the squad entered the hardwood, Manuel relayed a good luck message for the team, who were playing at the Mall of Asia Arena. "I spoke to Paul [Desiderio], I spoke to Diego [Dario], to Gelo [Vito] this morning, just telling them good luck, and yung usual ano, I mean, I’m always there for them. I’m just really happy for them. Yun lang talaga." The licensed engineer also shared how he expected that one day his teammates will bear the fruit of his squad's labor, an accomplishment the UP community has eagerly waited for a very long time. "Me personally, leaving UP with that goal na I wanted to leave something behind, leave a culture behind and try to start something, which will eventually lead to this." However, Manuel felt mixed emotions that UP's victory came at the expense of the Green Archers, where his younger brother, Joaqui plays for as a rookie. "...50-50 yung puso ko eh. I’m Maroon-blooded as well as a Manuel. So at the expense of my brother, yeah, I feel sad, but I’m more happy now that finally, finally [UP made it]." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»

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 — 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......»»
