FEU's Dennison relishes challenge of stopping UP's Desiderio

MANILA, Philippines – Ron Dennison and Paul Desiderio added another chapter to their long personal history on Sunday, when they took the starring roles for their respective teams in the UAAP Season 80 men's basketball tournament.

Dennison, now the team captain of Far Eastern University (FEU), again drew the tough assignment of trying to stop Desiderio, who has firmly established himself as the primary option of University of the Philippines (UP).

Heading into the game, Desiderio had been averaging 21.0 points, second in the league. He was coming off a career-best 30-point explosion in UP's 98-87 upset of De La Salle University last week.

However, Dennison was prepared. He did not bother to watch game tape of Desiderio – "Hindi ko na pinanood, para hindi ako ma-stress," he quipped – but the FEU veteran was armed with years of experience against his UP counterpart, dating back to their days as teammates in the University of the Visayas.

"Alam ko na rin ang mga galaw niya, kasi teammate ko siya noong high school," said Dennison. "Kaya pamilyar ako sa mga ginagawa niya."
