Marwin Dionisio knows: This season will be special for JRU

Marwin Dionisio came alive in the fourth quarter for Jose Rizal University.

The 6-foot-4 forward scored a crucial 11 markers in the final canto, to complete his 15 points and 10 rebounds outing that helped JRU prevail against Lyceum of the Philippines University, 63-57.

And of course, JRU head coach Louie Gonalez noticed the effort of his third-year bruiser.

“Yeah with Marwin naman it’s given eh – what’s good with that guy. Kaya as the season progress, nabi-build niya na ‘yung confidence at ina-accept niya na ‘yung role niya na he is my best forward. Talagang di lang aside from his skillset ‘yung responsibility na binibigay ko sa kanya he’s really up to the challenge,” said the Heavy Bombers head tactician.

“And, his composure in that last few minutes ‘yung closing out, talagang tinake over na ni Marwin ‘yun eh, and maganda rin naman ‘yung all five naglalarong yon, sinupportahan nila si Marwin,” he continued.

This is a huge one for the Heavy Bombers as they improved their record to 5-2 good enough for the second spot.

And for Dionisio, it was a much-needed win so that they won’t fall into the middle of the standings where all the chaos is.NCAA-98-JRU-vs-SBU-JRU Marwin Dionisio knows: This season will be special for JRU Basketball JRU NCAA News  - philippine sports news

“Syempre una sa lahat inisip namin na pag natalo kami ang laki ng ibababa ng standing namin so talagang pinilit namin kahit nung una masyado kami gigil nung first half. Sinabi ko sa kanila na controlin lang namin yung laro, hindi sila yung magcocontrol ng laro kasi gusto namin manalo e, so yun,” said the 22-year-old all-around guard.

During Season 97, the Heavy Bombers struggled only winning one in nine games.

It was a much better showing for them this season as they already won five in seven games and are on a roll to rack up more.

And Dionisio believes that this season is gonna be special for them.

“Syempre last year wala sila [Agem] Miranda, [John] Amores, Ry [Dela Rosa], tapos yung mga rookie namin nandyan, tumutulong samin,” said Dionisio.

“Sa tingin ko buo na kami ngayon eh, hindi tulad last year na wala nakami ganito, wala kaming ganyan. So eto ngayon, ipapakita namin sainyo na kaya namin to hanggang sa dulo.”
