WHILE Jerrick Ahanmisi and Robbie Manalang starred in Adamson’s win over University of the Philippines, another rookie in Sean Manganti provided the highlight for the Falcons on Sunday.
With only two minutes left in the game and the result of the game already settled, the 6-foot-4 Manganti gave Adamson fans another reason to make noise by throwing down a two-hand dunk over UP’s Noah Webb.
“I just had a wide open lane, took it. He (Webb) decided to jump with me, we just met at the top,” said the 22-year-old Manganti as he recalled what was easily the play of the game.
Manganti celebrated the dunk animatedly with Terrence Mustre, admitting that he got caught up with the reaction of the Adamson crowd.
“The reaction was live, man. Our crowd is really behind us and it was very exciting,” said Manganti after the 104-85 win over the Maroons.
Manganti, however, refused to get too excited over the victory, admitting that Adamson actually played a bad game.
“It’s a huge win. There were a lot of expectations. I think we did a bad job, though. We had 27 turnovers. We should be able to do a lot better,” he said.
“There’s a lot of potential in us. But potential is just potential until we proved something,” said Manganti.
