UAAP 82: 9-hour flight from Dubai to Manila all worth it for FEU coach Olsen Racela

This time last night, Olsen Racela was on the sidelines for Ginebra as they waged war against NLEX in the 2019 Governors' Cup. The game, however, was Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai. It just so happened that Racela had to be back in Manila by 4:00 p.m. on Sunday as he had to coach Far Eastern University in its matchup opposite the University of the Philippines in the UAAP 82 Men's Basketball Tournament. Safe to say, Coach Olsen's travel from Dubai to Manila was far from stress-free. It all started with the Gin Kings' game tipping off later than expected - and then, that game going into overtime. And so, Ginebra's game was only done at 12:45 a.m. Philippine time. Right after, Racela rushed to the airport and, fortunately, made his flight and also fortunately, had his flight taking off on time at 3:45 a.m. Philippine time. Nine hours later, the Tamaraws' mentor was in NAIA and there, his mother was already waiting to take him to MOA Arena. And at 4:30 p.m. he saw his boys take charge right from tip-off. Of course, he also saw his boys lose a 16-point deficit before leaving it all on the floor and pulling out a gutsy triumph over the fancied Fighting Maroons. And in the end, Coach Olsen was nothing but glad to have made that trip, no matter how stressful it was. "Mahirap talaga, but looking at these young men and how much they wanted to win, yung pagod at saka yung antok at saka yung pinagdaanan ko, it's all worth it with this win," he shared. He then continued, "Actually, sa nilaro namin, yung resulta, bonus na lang. (Bottom line), yung nilaro namin, sulit yung pinagdaanan ko." And so, after a nine-hour flight, Racela and FEU have their biggest win thus far in the tournament. "Beating the no. 2 team shows we can compete, but you for that to happen, everyone has to contribute. We're hoping that we could sustain that." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Bong and Mozzy feeling bittersweet with Thirdy leaving Ravena nest

Without a doubt, Bong and Mozzy Ravena want the best for Thirdy. And right now, they are adamant that Japan's B.League is the best for their second son's young career. "Sobrang proud namin kay Thirdy," mama Mozzy said just hours after it became official that Thirdy will be suiting up for San-En NeoPhoenix. "Gustuhin man naming nandito siya sa atin, as parents, we want yung best sa kanya. Playing internationally is where he can reach his potential." The three-time Finals MVP with Ateneo de Manila University is the first player to be joining the Japanese league by way of the "Asian Player Quotas" instituted in November of last year. The rule aims to open doors for more and more non-Japanese Asian players to join the B.League to "enhance competition in daily games… and expand business in the Asian market." In essence, Ravena will play as an Asian import for San-En NeoPhoenix. That's exactly why Papa Bong's first and foremost advice is for Thirdy to play like an Asian import. "I just told him to focus, play hard, play smart, and play as an import," he said. For the proud parents, they have no doubt whatsoever that their child will only keep on making them proud. And so, the greater worry for them is the fact that their 23-year-old son will have to live independently for quite some time. Of course, Bong and Mozzy will make sure that they will still be taking care of Thirdy. As the former put it, "Mahirap para sa magulang na mangibang-bansa ang anak. We're already planning on taking turns going there para may kasama siya." He then continued, "Pero same lang din with Kief before, pupuntahan namin siya kung sino man sa amin ang pwedeng pumunta. Better lang for Thirdy because Japan is closer." The Ravena matriarch was of the same mind. "First time mawawala nang matagal sa amin si Thirdy kaya siyempre, may worry rin kami as parents, pero alam naman namin ni Bong na kakayanin niya mag-isa," she said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogogo......»»
