Calisaan left disappointed as Stags fall short, admits Adeogun wore him out



Michael Calisaan had the gargantuan task of defending Ola Adeogun during the San Sebastian Stags’ battle against the San Beda Red Lions, and admitted it was the turning point, as the hulking big got the better of him in the end.

“Sobrang hirap depensahan ni Ola. 6-foot-9? Lalo na apat na yung fouls ko kaya umiilag rin ako sa loob,” Calisaan shared.

The Stags did not have the best of frontlines to stop the Red Lions’ bigs, and it allowed Adeogun to dominate with 28 points and 14 rebounds.

“Mismatch talaga kung titingnan ko. Ako 6-foot-3 lang tapos ang laki pa ng katawan,” Calisaan added.

It did not help that San Sebastian’s lone legitimate big man, Bradwyn Guinto, was nursing foul trouble, as Calisaan was left with no choice but to try his best in containing Adeogun.

“Bangaan, mapapagod ka talaga. No choice na lang rin siguro dahil si Bradwyn (Guinto) ay foul trouble na rin. Nagsakripisyo na lang rin kami,” he shared.

Calisaan did finish with 17 points, but admits he could have done better, although all the contact underneath wore him out offensively. The forward also fouled out amidst the Golden Stags’ comeback attempt, making it even more disappointing for him.

“Sayang, nandoon na yung momentum namin, tapos ganoon pa ang nangyari. Sayang talaga.”

But Calisaan says he will not stop developing himself into an even stronger forward, as his family pushes him to do his best each time.

“Ready naman ako (in the future). Para sa pamilya ko to. Ginagawa ko silang motivation.”
