I still take pride for San Beda Red Lions when they win games in the NCAA because deep in side me–tucked away in the darkest of place–there’s still a heart of a lion. Especially when they win games in these kinds of manner!
San Beda Head Coach Ronnie Magsanoc, calls them the ‘Super six’. They consist of Francis Abarcar, Ritchie Villaruz, Jun Bonsubre, Yvan Ludovice, Art Dela Cruz and Dave Moralde. They amazingly won over Arellano University with a 10 point lead. (81-71) in the NCAA Season 88 at the San Juan Arena today.
Other Bedan players, including, Baser Amer, Jake Pascual and Kyle Pascual was given a one game suspension for their involvement in brawl at a NCAA Volleyball game last year while Nigerian Ola Adeogun should be out for 4 games in total.
Magsanoc, who replaced Frankie Lim as the team head coach says, “It’s all heart. It was exhausting for them but extremely rewarding. Trinabaho ng mga bata every possession.”
Imagine the look on everyone’s faces! Will this be a warning to the other NCAA schools that San Beda Red Lions are pure power with or without more than half of the team, retain in their throne and get another back to back Championship? Maybe.
