"Nung dati I really hated San Beda eh, sa totoo lang" --- Babes Bolick

Oh yes, back when he was still a La Salle Green Archer, Robert Bolick couldn't stand San Beda.

Robert Bolick sure enjoys handing San Beda NCAA championships now but there was a time "Babes" absolutely despised the Red Lions.

Oh yes, back when he was still a La Salle Green Archer, Robert Bolick couldn't stand San Beda.

"Nung dati I really hated San Beda eh, sa totoo lang," Bolick, who won a UAAP title with the Green Archers in Season 76, said Thursday after he won his second straight NCAA title with the Red Lions.

"When we play against them sa FilOil, si coach Boyet pa yung coach sa kabila, I really hated them because they're really good eh. Pag San Beda kalaban I really don't like [it]," he added.

After leaving Taft for Mendiola in 2015 though, Bolick has nothing but love for his new-found home now.

His love was evident in the Season 93 Finals against the previously-undefeated Lyceum Pirates, hitting clutch shot after clutch shot to the delight of all San Beda fans.

In hindsight, his decision to leave La Salle and go to San Beda was the best thing Bolick has ever done so far, basketball wise.

And after this latest title, Bolick says he's staying one more year to complete his stint in San Beda. Why? Because he's loves it  there.

"That's why I stayed for a year, because of them. Pwede na ako magpa-draft, pero it's my responsibility to give one more year for San Beda. The way they treat me, galing pa lang sa teachers, sa fathers, sa tao sa cafeteria, mga guards, kahit sino-sinong nandoon. You're inspired to play for them because they have the passion," he said.

"I love San Beda," Bolick added.
