Bobby Parks Jr. changed his mind. Instead of going abroad for a possible stint in the Georgia Tech University men's basketball team, he stayed in the Philippines to play for the National University Bulldogs and play under NU's new coach, Eric Altamirano. Bobby Parks Jr. ignited the Bulldogs as they beat the UST Growling Tigers yesterday. NU won with the score of 60-52. The NU Bulldogs join the Blue Eagles with 2 wins and 0 losses in the 2011 FilOil Flying V Premier Cup while the Tigers go down with the record of 1-1. The Tigers are now tied with San Beda in the team standings.
Kyle Neypes and Cedric Labing-isa, the two very controversial UST pay High School graduates, along with Bobby Parks Jr., led the NU Bulldogs in beating the UST Tigers.
Coach Eric Altamirano felt happy about his team's chemistry despite their youth. He praised his new ace player, 6'6 Bobby Parks. He is young but he is the key for this team's success.
Bobby Parks Jr. scored 17 big points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists. He was helped by Marion Magat who scored 8 points and Denice Villamor with 7 points. Their lanky big man, Emmanuel Mbe didn't play in this game because of personal issues.
UST's big man, Karim Abdul didn't go down without a fight. He had 13 points and 23 rebounds for the Tigers.
