Robert Bolick, CJ Perez still a cut above rest on a storm-ravaged week in NCAA
CJ Perez and Robert Bolick continue to shine despite a storm-ravaged week in the NCAA.

ROBERT Bolick and CJ Perez continue to be the top performers in NCAA Season 93 after leading their respective squads to big victories in the lone playdate of a storm-ravaged week.

Bolick worked major minutes in San Beda’s 81-74 victory over rivals Letran last Tuesday, pumping in 22 points to go with five rebounds, five assists while defending Knights star Rey Nambatac for majority of his 38-and-a-half minutes on the floor.

Perez's form may have dipped from his usual high-scoring ways as he finished with just 16 points in Lyceum’s 99-65 drubbing of Arellano, but he still played a major role in the win.

The versatile wing man scored 14 points in the final 20 minutes as the Pirates broke the game wide open and cruised to their most comfortable win of the season.

For the season, it has been the two players who have emerged as the top individual studs as well.

Perez is averaging a league best 20.5 points per game to go along with 5.5 rebounds and 1.3 steals. Bolick, on the other hand, continues to fill the stat sheets with averages of 15.4 points, 7. 4 rebounds and 4.8 assists a game.

Save for the two, a lot of players have also turned heads, starting with Bolick’s teammate JV Mocon who also played a huge part in the victory over the Knights.

The veteran forward went two assists shy of his first triple double in the NCAA as he finished with 17 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists against the Knights.

The San Beda lifer did most of his damage in the second half, together with AC Soberano who also had his moments by scoring all 16 of his points in the final two quarters of the game.

Emilio Aguinaldo College also got big production from its players after its 77-72 win over Mapua, particularly from forwards Sydney Onwubere and Juju Bautista.

The tireless Onwubere scored 24 points, grabbed eight boards to go along two assists and two blocks as the Generals evened their record to 2-2 (win-loss).

Onwubere has been the driving force behind the Generals’ campaign, putting up averages of 15.8 points, 11 rebounds and 1.5 blocks through four games.

Bautista, on the other hand, made a triumphant return after an injury kept him out in their loss to San Beda, with the transferee finishing with 12 points and 11 boards.

Players from teams in the losing end also showed up individually, starting with the Letran pair of Jerrick Balanza and Bong Quinto who did all they can against the Red Lions only to fall short in the end.

Balanza put up a career best 20 points, including some big shots to power a late Letran rally in the fourth, while Quinto had a monster double-double of 19 points and 15 rebounds.

The effort went for naught though as the Knights fell to the bottom of the standings with a 1-3 record.
