FEU's Tolentino insists no 'bawi factor' against old team Ateneo

MANILA, Philippines – Arvin Tolentino's inspired play against Ateneo de Manila University on Sunday had nothing to do with getting "revenge" against his former team, according to the Far Eastern University (FEU) standout.

Tolentino scored 11 points, all in the fourth quarter, but it was not enough as the Tamaraws bowed to the Blue Eagles, 94-82, for their second loss of the UAAP Season 80 men's basketball tournament.

It was Tolentino's highest scoring game to date, as he is still operating under a minutes restriction due to a nagging injury in his left leg. But the Season 77 Rookie of the Year insists that his performance had nothing to do with Ateneo, and everything to do with FEU's own UAAP campaign.

"Extra motivation siguro, hindi dahil Ateneo ang kalaban. We want to pick ourselves up, kasi 1-1 kami. 'Pag natalo kami, 1-2, so mahirap na posisyon 'yun," Tolentino explained after the game.

"Yun lang siguro ang naging extra motivation ko. For me and Hubert (Cani), wala naman kaming 'bawi factor' para sa kanila," he stressed.
