JJ Domingo finds his inspiration


If there’s one word to describe JJ Domingo so far in his four-year stint with the College of Saint Benilde Blazers, it’s inconsistent.

After a standout rookie year, the 22-year-old guard has struggled to put up consistent numbers. Even in his senior year, Domingo is averaging just 2.2 points on 23.5 percent shooting during the first six games of the season.

Tuesday afternoon against the EAC Generals, Domingo finally had his moment.

The 6-foot guard dropped 22 points on 10-for-16 shooting, to go along with seven rebounds and four assists.

“JJ finally is back. We’ve been patient, waiting for this day to come,” expressed second-year head coach TY Tang after their 84-71 win. “We know what JJ can do. It’s just a matter of getting his confidence back and being able to contribute in a way we know he can.

“Finally, he got his confidence coming and getting a breakout coming.”

Domingo did not look far to find his inspiration. Sitting in the audience was his son.

And having him in his life changed his perspective on life.

“Actually, everyday. Alam ko siya yung inspirasyon talaga. Siyempre, anak ko siya. Kailangan sa bawat laro ko may parang mapatunayan ako sa anak ko na, kaya ko maglaro, ” said the product of the FEU Baby Tamaraws program. “Sila inspirasyon ko paggising ko. Naging emotional talaga ako ‘pag nakikita ko yung baby ko ganoon. So parang nacha-challenge ako, every game.

“Inspirasyon ko talaga ang girlfriend ko and family ko.”
