Caidic relishes first foray in NCAA: ‘Medyo memorable for me’


Allan Caidic showed that there is a lot left in the tank after a great outing for Team Heroes in the NCAA Season 98 All-Star game on Saturday.

Caidic, who was one of four guest all-stars, had a vintage performance, scoring 14 points on four treys, dishing six assists, and grabbing two rebounds in their 98-95 win against Team Saints.

With the game bringing his competitive juices back, one of the PBA’s top players of all time could not help but yearn for more.NCAA-Season-98-All-Star-Game-Heroes-def-Saints-Allan-Caidic Caidic relishes first foray in NCAA: 'Medyo memorable for me' Basketball NCAA News  - philippine sports news

“Etong game naman na to is for fun,” said the three-time UAAP Most Valuable Player out of University of the East. “Makikita mo naman na nag-eenjoy lahat ng mga players and nakakatawa nga kasi almost all players na kakampi ko ako hinahanap, pinapasa sakin parang nakakatuwa nga, nakaka-challenge din na kailangang i-shoot ko yung tira ko.

“E medyo in a way, sa sarili ko lang ang dami kong misses kaya na-frufurustrate ako sa sarili ko. But nevertheless, overall, natutuwa ako kasi naging part ako ng All-Star na ‘to.”

It goes to show Caidic’s heart and passion for the sport since he led the legends in scoring and was only behind All-Star MVP Nat Cosejo in points for his team.

Speaking of Cosejo, he was one of two student-athletes who caught Caidic’s eye, with the other one being Allen Liwag.

“Yung dalawang taga EAC na teammates ko. Si Liwag, matangkad very promising siya. Saka etong si MVP [Cosejo]. Syempre yung iba naman nakapag-contribute din,” said Caidic, a formre PBA MVP.

“Pero syempre di mo naman makikita sa ganitong game yung laro mismo ng player eh. Almost lahat naman yan definitely deserving na mapabilang dito. So I’m sure na magagaling talaga yang mga yan, even yung sa kalaban namin,” he continued.

Despite having a stellar resume, this was actually Caidic’s first time in the NCAA in any capacity.

And the 59-year-old said that he enjoyed every single minute of it.

“Imagine, I’m 59 and halos lahat yan parang mga anak ko na yung mga teammate ko. And nakakatuwa dahil nabigyan ng chance nga kasi first time ako ma-involve sa isang NCAA event. Medyo memorable for me.”
