Bolick: ‘I love playing against Perpetual’

first_imgThe Altas also kept San Beda’s offense in check, limiting them to a 26-percent clip, a stark contrast to the Red Lions’ average of 42.1 percent. They also held the foes to just 11 assists, far from San Beda’s average of 17 per outing.Bolick took responsibility for the Red Lions’ dismal performance.“Ever since, my role here is to get my teammates involved, and I didn’t do that today. I was looking for my shots, forcing my shots, and it’s my fault. I should get my teammates involved.”The senior guard, though, said that San Beda should charge this to experience as it looks to come out better in its next game against EAC on Friday.“We should be better. We should understand that (Perpetual is) a good defensive team, and we should execute,” he said. “But again, I’m happy for us. We’ll take this one and we will improve as a team.”ADVERTISEMENT For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity.
