‘He made me into an MVP’: Bolick repays Fernandez’ trust with NCAA crown

San Beda head coach Boyet Fernandez putimmense trust on Robert Bolick in leading the Red Lions, and when it mattered the most the mustachioed guard delivered and repaid his mentor with the championship.

Bolick finished with 18 points, five rebounds, six assists, and a dagger that embedded itself to the collective heart of Lyceum.

With San Beda holding an 86-82 lead with a minute remaining, Bolick took his spot at the top of the key and launched a triple in the face of Mike Nzeusseu that gave the Red Lions an 89-82 lead with 50.9 seconds left.

San Beda eventually won 92-82 to clinch its 21st NCAA seniors basketball title and that championship trophy was Bolick’s payment for the confidence Fernandez had given him.

“I want to thank coach Boyet, because he was the one who helped me grow as a basketball player,” said Bolick in Filipino Thursday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. “He made me into an MVP, although I didn’t win the award because I was thrown out.”
