Arellano University head coach Obet Javier is a man of few words, preferring to give direct answers every time he goes to the post-game scrum.

But, after his Lady Chiefs clinched a three-peat Tuesday evening, Javier needed to get something off his chest.

“Itong championship na ito para talaga kay coach Nes,” Javier said, abruptly pausing the press conference.

The four-time NCAA champion pointed out that it has been almost a month since Pamilar passed due to sepsis.

Pamilar, one of the architects of Philippine volleyball, was a father-figure to Javier.

The Lady Chiefs head coach had served as assistant coach to Pamilar in his past club teams since the Cagayan Valley Lady Rising Suns.

Though Javier did not say any more, the long silence that followed his mentioning of Pamilar was symbolic of the student paying tribute to the master.
