ADAMSON failed to win the UAAP Season 81 3x3 tournament last Sunday, yet Jerrick Ahanmisi was still wearing a smile on his face.
Well, the Falcons downed University of the Philippines in their clash, 13-11, with Ahanmisi himself delivering the dagger to gain a measure of redemption after the Maroons' shock win over Adamson in the UAAP Final Four last season.
"I’ve been waiting for this for quite some time, honestly," he bared. "Definitely, I had a bit more energy for this game."
The boys from San Marcelino squandered twice-to-beat advantage to the Maroons and that painful feeling still lingers for Ahanmisi after seeing seniors like Sean Manganti weep three months prior.
And that's why even though the Falcons only mustered a 2-4 record in the 3x3 game, the sweet-shooting guard can pump his chest knowing that one of those victories were at the expense of the Fighting Maroons.
Ahanmisi's not satisfied just yet, though, as he aims to settle the score once UAAP Season 82 rolls on later this year.
"It's a little bit of revenge, but not whole yet. Next season, we’ll be more prepared," he said. "I’m really prepared. The coaches taught me well to lead the group to where we could go this season."
