Racela apologizes to seniors Dennison, Trinidad for FEU’s Final 4 exit

Ron Dennison and Jojo Trinidad bid goodbye to Far Eastern University, and if there’s one person who is saddened to see the two leave is head coach Olsen Racela.

Racela and the Tamaraws failed to enter the UAAP Season 80 men’s basketball Finals after losing to Ateneo, 88-84, in their rubber match and this will forever be in the former PBA star’s mind as he regrets not seeing his seniors play for a title.

“I would like to apologize to these two because I couldn’t bring them to the Finals in their last year,” said Racela in Filipino Wednesday at Mall of Asia Arena. “These two are very good players, not just good players, but very good people.”

FEU, which finished fourth in Season 80 after a 7-7 record in the elimination round, was able to force Ateneo, the top-seeded team with a 13-1 slate, to use its twice-to-beat advantage in the semifinals with an 80-67 beating in the first game.

Ateneo, though, battled back in the second game to secure a win in overtime and set up a Finals date with defending champion De La Salle.
