Lumpia, pancit key in Magpayo s coaching for US NCAA Div. 1

Mike Magpayo was not born and bred in the Philippines, but he is Filipino through and through.  The Filipino-American head coach of University of California-Riverside remains proud of his roots - roots that are, actually, big pieces to the puzzle in his first time coaching in the big leagues.  "Relationships are huge for me," he said in Coaches Unfiltered. "That's how I am in life and that's how all of us Filipinos are - we love to be around people, we love to talk to people."  For Magpayo, establishing and then reinforcing bridges with players is the first step to success.  From a tight bond between coaches and players, everything else will follow.  Since Day 1, the founder and president of the Asian Coaches Association has been making sure of that tight bond with the help of Filipino food. "I love to invite them to my house. Like Thanksgiving, my mom's making all that food and I get our players to my house and they love it," he shared.  He then continued, "They eat my mom's food and they love everything - lumpia, pancit, everything. So that's my thing, relationships are huge for me."  And so, through meals of lumpia and pancit, Magpayo gets closer and closer to his players - and that will be the foundation for their hoped for continued contention.  And who knows, that may very well just the big boost to propel them to March Madness. "We're not competing with Kentucky (in recruitment), that's not our goal. Our goal No. 1 is to win the Big West (Conference) because if you win the Big West championship, you're gonna go to the NCAA tournament," he said.  He then continued, "We're just putting together the best group of young men we can find and my hope is for them to have great attitude and great work ethic and be really, really proud to be in UC-Riverside."  ---  Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo. .....»»
