RON Dennison isn't ready to see the end of his UAAP career with Far Eastern University, but at the same time he doesn't want to put any more pressure on himself ahead of the sudden-death match against Ateneo on Wednesday.
"Sa akin, mindset ko enjoy the game," said Dennison after the fourth-seeded Tamaraws' 80-67 win sent their Final Four showdown against top-seeded Ateneo to a deciding second game. "Hindi ko iniisip na last game ko na o last year ko na. Enjoy the game lang."
The 23-year-old Dennison finished with 17 points, eight rebounds, three assists, and two steals in Sunday's win and, more importantly, played the role of a leader to younger teammates.
"Ayoko rin matapos UAAP career ko na matatalo kami. Gusto ko pa maglaro sa finals. Nung bago ng last practice namin, kinausap ko sila na ibigay na namin ang lahat. 'Yung takot namin, iwan namin sa practice, 'yung lakas ng loob dadalhin namin sa game," Dennison added.
A member of the 2015 championship squad of FEU, Dennison said experience will go a long way in the knockout game.
"Marami na rin ako naranasan sa mga ganitong laro. Shine-share ko rin sa kanila," said Dennison.
