    FROM defending top Lyceum guns in CJ Perez and MJ Ayaay, Bong Quinto now turns his focus into defending something more personal.

    His thesis.

    Playing his final collegiate game following Letran’s 109-85 loss to Lyceum in the Semifinals of the NCAA Season 94, Quinto hopes that he’ll get his bearings back quickly to defend his paper back in their school.

    He can only hope that his partnership with JP Calvo will work better in this aspect.

    “Di ko alam yung pakiramdam eh. Di ko alam gagawin ko. Di ako makapag focus kasi after nito may thesis pa kami, defense namin mamaya,” said Quinto.

    “Dalawa kami ni JP, kami ang magka group mamaya,” he added.

    The thesis defense will come after a horrific game against the Pirates where Quinto was limited to just 12 points, though he did get seven assists and six rebounds in the loss.

    Quinto was pretty hard on himself after the loss, saying that he should have a done a better job leading the team with Calvo out.

    “Di ko ineexpect na ganun yung lalaruin ko eh. Kumbaga wala akong natulong sa team namin yung laban na to kasi yun nga, inaasahan ako sa team natin, lalo na si coach Jeff inaasahan ako,” said Quinto.

    “Nakadagdag pa yun nga, nangyari kay Toto (Calvo). Kasi di makadating samin yung bola sa baba eh. Kaya di kami makapag set ng play namin. Pero yun nga, di naman excuse yun kasi pinaghandaan talaga kami nung Lyceum. Story nga ng game yun sakin talaga. Kundi ganun nilaro ko, siguro hindi ganun yung nangyari.”

    Quinto said that he couldn’t bear to look at the crowd after the loss – but he assures everyone that he’ll always be backing Letran, long after his playing years.

    “Alam ko talaga sa sarili ko na ano eh, isa ako sa mga malaking reason kung bakit natalo kami kasi yun nga performance ko di ganun. Di yun yung inexpect ng skwelahan namin. Di ako makatingin sa mga crowd, di ako maka iyak alam mo yun?” Quinto said.

    “Parang di ko alam kung pano ako haharap sa skwelahan namin. Natapos na yung sitwasyon sabi nga nila namnamin namin pagkatalo namin pero bawi na lang siguro. Kasi matutulong ko na lang sa team namin next year yung suporta eh.”
