Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) chairman Butch Ramirez said he sees the reported ill-advised training bubble made by the UST Growling Tigers amid the health crisis as something beyond basketball.
"The issue, for me, is much bigger than sports. It touches on a sensitive facet of our society that questions our priorities," Ramirez said in a statement yesterday.
Doncic nails buzzer-beater,
Celtics, Raptors sweep rivals
Luka Doncic wasn't about to let a sprained ankle slow him down, nailing a game-winning three-pointer at the buzzer to lift the Dallas Mavericks to a 135-133 overtime playoff win over the Los Angeles Clippers yesterday.
The 21-year old Slovenian phenom, who was playing with a tender ankle and missing his offensive sidekick Kristaps Porzingis, finished with 43 points, 17 rebounds and 13 assists to level the first-round NBA Western Conference playoff series at two games each.
"This game was from another planet," said Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle of Doncic's heroics.
