An injury to Robert Bolick prevents the rematch between the top two NCAA teams, San Beda Red Lions and Lyceum Pirates, in the PCCL finals to have a full cast of characters.

Still, Bolick have faith that his teammates will prevail over the Pirates.

“Full trust ako sa teammates ko na kayang-kaya nila iyan,” he said.

“Kayang-kaya namin yan. Basta stick together lang at gawin naming pinapagawa ni coach. Kaya namin yan, tiwala naman ako sa kanila. May magste-step- up din, I’m sure.”

Bolick’s injury frustration escalates as he was really looking forward to compete with the best colleges in the country.

“Yun nga sa Ateneo gustong-gusto ko na maglaro siyempre champion sila sa kabila pero nanalo parin kami so ok lang, Eto naman, siyempre gustong-gusto nila bumawi sa team at isa ako sa mga leader sa team pero hindi makakalaro, medyo frustrated.”

The Red Lion’s captain said that his injury will heal in a couple of weeks. His inactivity caused him to miss his practice commitments with the Gilas program as well.

“Getting better. Ok naman siya medyo masakit pa talaga eh so ganito parin nararamdaman ko, wala talaga ako sa Thursday,” he said. “Natamaan lang sa gilid, tuhod to tuhod. Medyo namamaga na siguro.

Ice lang ng ice pero ngayon medyo ok na siya hindi kagaya dati na hindi ko ma-bend.”
