    ROBERT Bolick will forever be grateful to San Beda and NorthPort for helping him build his confidence that led to an invitation to join the Gilas Pilipinas pool.

    "Kung hindi dahil sa kanila, hindi ako makakarating dito," said the rookie after attending his first national team practice on Monday.

    "San Beda ang nag-angat sa akin, tapos NorthPort ang nag-pick sa akin sa PBA. Kung hindi ako binigyan nila coach Pido (Jarencio) ng kumpyansa, hindi ako magiging ganito."

    Bolick is one of the new faces in coach Yeng Guiao's Gilas pool and he's just overjoyed having this opportunity this early in his PBA career.

      "Sa akin, blessing ito at challenge para sa akin. Inaaccept ko lang yung honor na makasama ako dito," said the Ormoc-born playmaker, who has been having a tear in the 2019 PBA Commissioner's Cup to average 17.1 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 5.1 assists to help NorthPort clinch a quarterfinal seat.

      Whatever his fate may be in this first stint with the national team, Bolick said that he'll always treasure this chance.

      "Masaya na akong nandito ako. Pag nakuha, mas tatrabahuin ko. Pag di ako nakuha, may kulang pa ako, yun din ang tatrabahuin ko. Blessing lang sa akin. Ina-accept ko lang yung honor," he said.
