Let us reserve this section on featuring the basketball players of the STI College Olympians. The first Olympian we would like to feature wears jersey # 9.

Erickson " Eric" Dia
Point Guard
5' 7", 150 Lbs
November 12

Ever since his entry in the 2ND STI Basketball Showdown the league adjusted to the tenacious defense shown by Eric. His speed is enough to outlast almost anyone in the league. That was the reason why his team, STI College Makati made it to the finals that year.* He is also dubbed as "the one man pressing machine" since he can cover almost anyone in the court and defend 100% for forty minutes.

These attributes were the reasons why Coach Vic Ycasiano got him.* The fast paced game suits Eric very well and Coach Vic inserts him in the game when most point guards are scorers.* His intensity is unmatched and most of the time he is the one who gets the better end whenever the press is on.

Eric is the only one remaining from the original group of Olympians and his sacrifices has been reaping its dividends lately.* With the body of a god and the speed of mercury, Eric will surely be a force to reckon with.

Eric Dia gave a credible performance this morning specially on defense. His speed is still instrumental in forcing opponents commit turnovers. Well i hope he continues his brand of defense and learns a lot from his opponents in time for the NAASCU wars!

bakit biglang nawala iyung mabayo sa lineup ninyo? injured ba?

Wala na ba si Mabayo sa lineup ng STI, Sir Mhel?

Ramon Mabayo was injured. He he is now back practicing with the Olympians just this November.
He would have been a great help during the championship. He and the two other forwards who got injured.
Well as they say, thats the way the bounces ball.
Mhelly Christmas to all!
