crush­ing bas­ket­ball big­gies like warped wa­ter­mel­ons?

When UC trimmed a 13-point deficit to just 4 at 44-48, Justin heaved a triple and next drilled in a long two for Ate­neo’s 53-44 4th-quar­ter lead.

Of­ten as­signed to shackle shoot­ers from the perime­ter, Justin’s new-found of­fen­sive sock was em­bel­lished all the more when he un­leashed a mighty put-back for a 57-47 bulge that fi­nally took the fight out of the to­tally out­classed Baby Webs. Stun­ning.

Justin is the son of Mayra and Chris, whose par­ents May and Ra­mon Uy (he turns a new leaf on Sept. 14), are my dear­est friends in Ba­colod.

Chris is one of a kind. In­stead of en­dors­ing his son, Justin, to me for a bas­ket­ball try­out in Manila’s Ate­neo some years back, Chris in­stead rec­om­mended SJ Be­lan­gel. SJ is now a star at Ate­neo Manila.

Now, at the rate Justin is play­ing, the door to Ate­neo Manila seems ajar. With or with­out Chris’ say-so, I might yet make my own move. Soon. Right, Mayra?

BAGUIO BIT From Herr Bautista of Baguio City: “I read your col­umn [06/09/17]. May I sug­gest? 1. PSC should pick 10 cities out­side Metro Manila. 2. Give P2M a year each to the Top 2 schools for ath­let­ics in these cities to aug­ment their sports bud­gets. I think this small in­cen­tive will re­vi­tal­ize our provincial pro­grams. No part of the sub­sidy should go to bas­ket­ball.” PSC Chair Butch Ramirez, your move.
