ROBERT Bolick of NCAA three-peat titlist San Beda and Thirdy Ravena of UAAP back-to-back champion Ateneo headline of the Mythical Five in the 2019 Chooks-to-Go Collegiate Awards on Monday at Amelie Hotel Manila in Malate.
Bolick ended his collegiate career with a bang, averaging 16.8 points in 49.1 percent shooting, 5.4 rebounds and 4.8 assists in the Red Lions' 20-1 romp through the 94th Season of the NCAA. That included a 50-point outburst against Arellano in the elimination round -.
For his part, Ravena averaged 14.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks as the Blue Eagles' dominated UAAP Season 81 with an overall 15-2 record, ending the run with the Finals MVP award.
Completing this year's All-Collegiate Team selected by the Collegiate Press Corps, made up of scribes from print and online outfits covering the NCAA and UAAP, are NCAA 94 MVP Prince Eze of Perpetual and the UP pair of Bright Akhuetie and Paul Desiderio.
Eze put the Altas on his back all season long as they barged back into the playoffs. Akhuetie's own MVP campaign as well as Desiderio's heroics were also more than enough to bring the Fighting Maroons to their first Final Four since 1997 and first Finals in 32 years.
The NU Lady Bulldogs who will receive the Award of Excellence, Ateneo's Ange Kouame and San Beda's Javee Mocon will receive Pivotal Player plums, Adamson's Sean Manganti and Lyceum's CJ Perez will receive Impact Player citations, Red Lions' mentor Boyet Fernandez and Blue Eagles' tactician Tab Baldwin will be recognized as Coaches of the Year, while UST's Sisi Rondina and Arellano's Regine Arocha have been named Volleyball Players of the Year.
