Undoubtedly, Fran Yu was the undisputed star of stars during the entire NCAA Season 95 Seniors Basketball Stepladder.
For him, though, the bigger trophy was much more important than any the individual honor.
“Masarap pero mas masarap maging champion. Wala ‘yung individual award as long as makuha namin ‘yung malaking trophy. ‘Yun ‘yung pangarap naming lahat tapos ako hindi ko naman pinangarap ‘yung individual award,” said the 5-foot-10 floor general, who averaged 13.7 points, 3.3 rebounds, 6.0 assists, and 2.0 steals during the Finals.
“Ang pangarap ko maging champion ako at lahat kami magaangat ng trophy.”
However, after the post-game pleasantries, Yu was left scrambling.
He lost his gold medal.
According to the league, officials had already distributed all the gold medals to each Knight and head coach Bonnie Tan. Well, all except for Yu’s.
And Yu vows to find it before heading home.
“Importante ‘yun! Sasabit ko ‘yun kasama ‘yung jersey ko na ito, sasabit ko sa bahay. Oo, hahanapin ko ‘yun.”
UPDATE: Medal found!
