PSC questions UST training ‘bubble’

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.

The "sensitive facet", he said, pertains to moral challenges he described as "one glaring reality that we face in the field of sports, as in all other aspects of life."

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.
