Bolick missing good quality basketball between San Beda and LPU

Lyceum of the Philippines University was the biggest thorn of San Beda University during Robert Bolick's time playing for the latter. The Pirates and the Red Lions went at it in the Finals for back-to-back years - back-to-back years that coincided with Bolick's last years in red and white. Of course, San Beda won out both times. Still, the Red Lions were, most definitely, given a good run for their money. Not only that, most, if not all, of those games were neck-and-neck - and Bolick only has fond memories of all of them. "Yung pinakagusto ko sa games namin ng Lyceum, yung pinakahindi ko makakalimutan, yung laro namin, hindi dumi eh. Never kami nagsisikuhan, never kaming naggugulangan," he shared in his appearance on The Prospects Pod with LPU's CJ Perez. He then continued, "Pagalingan lang ng depensa, pagalingan lang kung paano mag-opensa." Indeed, the head-to-head record of the two teams was 5-3 in favor of San Beda. In the three games that went the Pirates' way, they won by an average of 4.7 points. For their part, the Red Lions' average winning margin was 10.4 points. In those eight games, the biggest win was 15 points by the red and white. All of them, apparently, remain must-see TV for Bolick even today. "Palagi ko nga pa ring inuulit sa YouTube. Sabi ko lagi, ang ganda talaga," he said. Up to now, "Big Shot Bolick" is in awe at how San Beda and LPU just tried to outdo each other without ever going overboard. As he put it, "Walang hawakan, dikdikan lang talaga. Good quality basketball talaga." He then continued, "Ang bilis nila tapos kami bagal-bagal yung laro. Ang sarap talaga." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
