MANILA, Philippines – Rome dela Rosa won't lie: There were moments in his rookie season when he felt impatient and frustrated, wondering why he was not getting any consistent playing time for the Alaska Aces.
The Aces made the 6-foot-3 Dela Rosa the first pick in the second round of the 2014 PBA Rookie Draft, but it took the former San Beda College standout until the final conference of his freshman season to break through Alex Compton's line-up.
Dela Rosa played only eight games in the Philippine Cup with an average of 5.7 minutes per game. In the Commissioner's Cup, he played in only five games for an average of 6.5 minutes.
"It's part of the process," Dela Rosa said diplomatically when asked if he was ever impatient. "I have to admit, there would be days like, 'Hey, what's going on? I wanna be on the court. I wanna play.'"...

“Our organization has always tried to help someone in the team change for the better. It’s not just Calvin,” Bachmann confided to Philstar.com on Wednesday....
MANILA, Philippines – Former National University (NU) forward Troy Rosario has heard rumors about where he will be picked in the upcoming PBA Rookie Draft.
But the high-leaping forward said he won't believe anything until he is actually selected.
"Marami akong naririnig," Rosario told ABS-CBNnews.com on Tuesday at the San Juan Arena, where he watched the NCAA game between San Beda College and University of Perpetual Help. "First pick, second pick, mga ganoon."...
