Tiu stresses values in sports as
NOPSSCEA season starts
Recounting his rookie days when he was a benchwarmer and was given a few minutes playing time, celebrity-athlete Chris Tiu encouraged student-athletes to work hard in their game at the opening of the 32nd NOPSSCEA Season yesterday at the Colegio San Agustin-Bacolod Gym.
Tiu, former team captain of the UAAP men’s basketball champion team Ateneo Blue Eagles, said he needed to put in an extra effort and practice a lot since he is not a naturally-gifted player.
The times he spent on the bench watching his team play on crucial games strengthened his resolve to work harder in order to get better, Tiu said.
