PBA mourns passing of the legendary Aric Del Rosario

The world of Philippine Basketball took a heavy loss Thursday with the passing of legendary coach Aric Del Rosario. [Related: Four-peat UAAP champion coach Aric Del Rosario passes away] While Coach Aric's magic was most fondly remembered in the college game, especially after he guided the UST Growling Tigers to four straight UAAP championships in the 1990s, Del Rosario was also a prolific coach in the PBA. In the 45-year history of the league, Del Rosario will be remembered as one of the best assistant coaches ever. "The PBA condoles with the entire family of the late former Alaska assistant mentor Aric Del Rosario, one of the friendliest and well-respected coaches during his time with the league," PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial said. "We will always remember him with fondness," he added. SMC sports director and former Glowing Goldie Alfrancis Chua also has some good memories of the legendary coach. It was Coach Aric who recruited Chua to play for UST in college. "Dalawa kami ni Gido Babilonia na dinala niya from Letran to UST. He's a passionate coach na napakabait na tao," Chua said. "Parang tatay namin yan dahil parang anak niya kami ituring. Imagine, ginagastos niya ang sarili niyang pera para pakainin kaming mga players. Gumagastos din ng sariling pera yan para sa team-building sessions namin," boss Al added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

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 .....»»

Kababayan Jerom Lastimosa was Matt Erolon s clincher to choose Adamson

Adamson High School won its first playoff game in the Mike Fermin era in the recently concluded UAAP 82 Boys Basketball Tournament. Even better, the Baby Falcons will be back for more next season with a mostly intact core. Fronting the charge is, of course, rookie MVP Jake Figueroa - and right there with him is Matt Erolon. As Figueroa takes care of the inside by being a near-automatic double-double machine, Erolon takes care of the outside by being a knockdown shooter. At the same time Adamson can thank Pampanga for Figueroa, it can thank a certain Soaring Falcon for Erolon. "Tinanggap ko yung offer ng Adamson dahil kay Jerom Lastimosa," Erolon shared. "Na-inspire po ako sa kanya. Ginusto kong mag-Adamson para sundan ang yapak niya." As it turns out, the sharpshooting Baby Falcon and the Soaring Falcons' veteran playmaker both hail from Dumaguete and both played for Asian College. And so, a difficult decision on whether to go from Negros to Manila became a no-brainer for Erolon. "Wala po kasi akong kasama rito. Mag-isa lang ako so naisip ko, at least, nandito rin sa Adamson si Jerom," he said. Make no mistake, though, the 6-foot guard worked his way to his break in blue and white. Before he was swishing nets in the UAAP, he first opened eyes in the 2019 National Basketball Training Centre League National Finals where he led St. Louis of Don Bosco to the Division 2 Fantastic Eight. And in the Three-Point Shootout, he reigned supreme. "'Di ko po talaga akalaing may mga kakausap sa aking school dun. Dream ko rin naman siyempreng makalaro sa UAAP kaya binigay ko lang yung best ko," he shared. Even come Season 82 itself, the 17-year-old still could not believe how far he had come. "Nung first game, first quarter ko po rito, na-pressure ako. 'Di ako makapaniwalang nandito na po ako," he said. Slowly but surely, though, he got to showcase the skills that made Adamson recruit him in the first place - and in the end, put up per game counts of 15.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 1.7 steals all while totalling a league-best 62 triples. With his first year over and done with, Erolon is only looking forward to taking on Coach Mike's next challenge for him. "Ang binigay ni coach sa akin na role para next year, maging point guard daw po. Kailangan daw po yung para kumpleto ako pagdating sa college," he said. Fortunately for him, the clincher for him to choose the Baby Falcons just happens to be one of the top young playmakers in all of college. Asked if Lastimosa had already been in touch to mentor him, he answered, "Opo. Nag-uusap na po talaga kami anong dapat gawin para magawa ko yun." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
