Alapag takes notice of Bolick, Perez: ‘A lot of talent, athleticism’

Robert Bolick and CJ Perez had memorable duels this past NCAA season for their respective schools San Beda and Lyceum, but as members of coach Chot Reyes’ “23-for-23” list, their impressive work on Monday’s evening practices at Meralco Gym caught the eye of one national team deputy.

The two got the attention of Gilas Pilipinas assistant coach Jimmy Alapag, who observed the short practice session where Bolick, Perez and the rest of the young bloods worked out with the veteran national team members.

“Bolick and CJ, having watched them in the last NCAA Finals, there’s a lot of talent, a lot of young energy, a lot of athleticism out here. I’m excited for them,” the former Gilas captain said.

Standout performances from Bolick and Perez shouldn’t come as a surprise given their accomplishments in the collegiate and amateur levels.

Bolick led San Beda to back-to-back NCAA titles and took Cignal HD to the 2017 PBA D-League Aspirant’s Cup crown where was even named MVP while Perez was the anchor of Lyceum’s impressive run in the NCAA Season 93 where the Pirates pulled off an 18-0 elimination round sweep.
