Scottie Thompson wants to play a Perpetual home game

"Sana nagkaroon ako ng opportunity na makapag-laro ng home court sa Perps dati kasi iba yung home court eh."
University of Perpetual Help almunus Scottie Thompson ended his stellar college career in 2015, two years early since NCAA On Tour started with home and away games. Now, a Finals MVP and a three-time PBA champion, Thompson looks back at his college self wishing he could have played a game in his home court in Las Pinas.
"'Yun yung di ko naexperience talaga. Sana nagkaroon ako ng opportunity na makapag-laro ng home court sa Perps dati kasi iba yung home court eh."
"Diba sa Ginebra, iba, daming crowd, daming suporta. Ganun din sa NCAA, mga estudyante gustong sumuporta. Gustong pumuntang venue pero hindi nakakapunta so dun sila sa home court mabibigyan ng magandang laban," said the now Ginebra star guard.
The Altas successfully defended their home land three days ago, Thursday, against San Sebastian. It was a thriller with Prince Eze drilling a game clinching buzzer beater putback.
"Actually, dapat manonood ako noon kaso hangover kami nung Finals kaya di na ako nakapunta," Thompson said sheepishly.
Perpetual's home game win just came a day after Brgy. Ginebra's PBA Commissioner's Cup championship, thus the hangover.
"Pero nanonood ako sa TV. Nalungkot ako nung tinambakan sila. Buti nakahabol yung team namin tapos buzzer beater."
It would have been nice for all Perpetualites to witness the triple-double monster collegiate Thompson but since it is too late, maybe they will have to see it on the PBA instead.
