In the early minutes first quarter of the first game I suffered injured right little or pinkie finger for being tangled and I'm playing hurt. I made a successful and one play. I played limited minutes cos I hurt badly. In fourth quarter I made couple of lay-up finished 7 points. We loss the game. In game 2 I didn't play the first 3 quarters. Due to injury of the ace player of our team. I substituted him. I missed couple of shots wound up zero point. And we suffered our 2nd losses. In last of our game, I made a lay-up, a jump shot and in the crunch time the big swished three points shot crowd are screaming down by seven but we did not sustained the rally and lost the game and we finished 4th and last place.

Goodwill Basketball Games (as missionary in Bicol)

(1996-1998) First in Manila I made an approximately 90 ft. bank shot. In Buhi, Camarines Sur, I'm 20 years old but look like a Senior High. We played a goodwill game with the a varsity and his classmates (Lyceum High). My teammate is a 6 footer American wrestler who took care of rebounds and medium range shooting while me I connected 20 three points shots. Very nice game.

We played a goodwill game with the a varsity and his classmates (Lyceum High). My teammate is a 6 footer American wrestler who took care of rebounds and medium range shooting while me I connected 20 three points shots. Very nice game. They are also smart but we're lucky. We played in municipal basketball court and it is fun the local people, Americans, New Zea lander and Samoan. We have games also in Iriga City, in a clear fiber glass board goal. Nice to play with the NCAA American missionary so strong guard and my weapon against him was a quick 3 points shot, I made also a mid court bank shot there. We played also in Bulan, Sorsogon, Mindanao MVP, Tarlac player and Pangasinan player they are so strong. We lost with my friends in Manila and Rizal. In this same place I made Mid court shots with each goals the 1st is nothing but the net the other is bank shot and all net, too. In Polangi, Albay Street ball 9 ft goal. We always won the game with my 6'2" Tongan fellow missionary. I made lots of 3 points, awesome Jordan lay-up like vs. L.A. Lakers against Polangi MVP I did that twice. Tomahawk dunking I love it. Two guys guarding me I parted the Red Sea to make that Tomahawk Dunk. In this same place we played against Korean tourists, and we won the games with the local guys. Koreans are so quick and strong but don't have much exposure to basketball cos they love baseball and soccer.
