ACTION AND REACTION. Sidney Onwubere said he was only giving back what Bright Akhuetie was giving him.
University of Perpetual Help and Emilio Aguinaldo College engaged each other in a defensive struggle that saw the two teams miss 91 of their 135 shots all in all.
Right in the middle of the battle of attrition were the Altas’ Bright Akhuetie and the Generals’ Sidney Onwubere – both inside operators who were more than capable of imposing their will on their opponents.
Without a doubt, something had to give between them on Tuesday and as such, there were more than a few times when they got up close and personal with each other.
Asked about his intimate interactions with Akhuetie, Onwubere said, “That was nothing. Of course, parehas lang namin gusto manalo.”
However, the EAC enforcer was quick to clarify that he had nothing to do with how it all began between the two of them. As he put it, “I wasn’t really starting to trash talk. I was just trying to do my defense on Bright then he started talking to me.”
He then continued, “I was just giving him back what he was giving me.”
Onwubere then claimed that he was never the kind of player who would do much talking on the court. “Actually, kay Bright lang naman talaga ako nakipag-trash-talk. The rest of the big men, I’m good with them because they weren’t starting (anything).”
He also added, “If you don’t start trash-talking with me, I won’t be trash-talking with you.”
For his part, however, Akhuetie said he wasn’t even paying any attention to whatever Onwubere was doing. FULL STORY HERE.
