‘Losing isn’t when you come in last or second; it’s when you don’t give your best’

Visit us on Instagram To be You; Facebook: To be You; e-mail inq.tobeyou@gmail.com The De La Salle University swimming team finished UAAP Season 81 last November on a high note. The women's swimming team (Lady Tankers) won third place, while the men's swimming team (Green Tankers) came in second. Among the members in the team is Green Tanker Rochmond Santos, 20, a third year sports studies major. Santos started swimming lessons when he was around nine years old. He didn't want to take the lessons, but his mother insisted. She told him that swimming was a "clean sport." He eventually fell in love with it.

PBA: Defiant Arwind says he’ll still do Spider-Man dunk if given the chance

Arwind Santos’ signature Spider-Man dunk could be no more. The PBA released a memo to all 12 PBA teams last Jan. 15 regarding players hanging on to rims after made dunks. A particular note in the memo read that players who hang on to rims after a dunk and “places either or both of his feet onto the backboard,” will be given a technical foul. [Related: PBA: Arwind's signature Spider-Man dunk now merits a technical foul] Literally only one PBA player does that and the league could have named the whole thing as the “Arwind Santos rule.” The new ruling was met with interesting responses to say the least with some saying it’s about time while others say that the PBA has singled out Santos, robbing him of his individuality. Well Arwind had this to say on the new rule. “Ako, hindi ako sang-ayon,” he said. “Kasi sabi ko nga, sabi nila Alex [Cabagnot], suporta rin. Magi-isponsor nga sila na kahit may fine daw, babayaran nila. Nakaka-tuwa naman. Na-touch ako. Pero ang akin kasi, trademark lang ba. Wala namang masama sa ginagawa ko,” Arwind added. Santos argued that the PBA could focus on better things, fixing issues that really needs fixing. Arwind feels that his trademark move is pretty much harmless, maybe except for opposing teams on the receiving end of his slam dunk. “Maraming mas pwede nating pagtuunan ng pansin na ipagbawal. Wag na yung Spider-Man dunk,” he said. “Mayroon rin kasing mga batang gustong-gusto makita yung Spider-Man dunk, [media], lalo na yung mga fans ko,” Santos added. Given the chance, Arwind says he’ll still do the Spider-Man dunk. As for the supposed danger the trademark dunk poses, Santos said accidents happen and things could still end up wrong regardless. “Kapag may chance, gagawin ko pa rin. Maliban sa alam kong may fine, hindi ko naman sinusuway pero para sa mga fans ko, kapag may pagkakataon, gagawin ko pa rin dahil kung sinasabi nila na may madidisgrasya, naniniwala ako, kapag madidisgrasya ka, madidisgrasya ka. Di ba?” Arwind said. “Kahit  anong ingat mo, sabi ko nga, meron nga dyan natutulog lang sa loob ng bahay, nabagsakan ng eroplano. Nag-iingat o hindi? Ano tawag doon? Aksidente diba? Aksidente. Pag maa-aksidente ka, maa-aksidente ka. Di ka makaka-iwas. Kung sakaling babagsak ako sa Spider-Man dunk, wala akong sisisihin. Baka nakangiti pa akong bumagsak eh. Sa totoo lang, pag nangyari yun,” Santos added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Makati s MPBL win run goes on; QC gets payback on Manda

Makati picked up where it left off in the latter stretch of 2018 and started the new year on a winning note to extend their streak in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Datu Cup. The Super Crunch outlasted the Pasig Pirates, 76-71, to sustain their winning run and notch their ninth straight victory.  With the win, Makati has improved its win-loss record to 15-4 to climb into a tie for third spot with idle San Juan in the tough northern division of this tournament. But in picking up their latest win, the Super Crunch had to endure a hard test and head coach Cholo Villanueva admitted his squad’s struggles. “You can see that we’re a bit sluggish. This is our first game in three weeks and most of the players are still on a vacation mode,” added Villanueva. “But this win means a lot because we were able to climb to third spot and has a chance to improve further.” Leading the way for the Super Crunch was veteran Mark Isip, who knocked in 11 of his 19 points in the opening quarter to keep a hold of the rest of the team. The Super Crunch extended their winning run to nine a row and they are the second hottest team in the tournament after the Tigers of Davao Occidental, who are having a 12-game winning streak. Joseph Sedurifa added 12 while Jeckster Apinan and John Rey Villanueva had 11 apiece for Makati. Pasig absorbed its 15th loss in 18 games to stay at the cellar. Earlier, Quezon City settled an old score with Mandaluyong by winning, 86-76, in the other game. It was a rematch of the game that was ordered to be replayed after the Capitals filed a protest on the El Tigre for fielding in Ronjay Buenafe, who was ineligible to play......»»
