Robert Bolick postponed a potential career in the PBA as he chose to stay at San Beda for one more season.

And the thing that made him choose school over professional hoops? That is the love for San Beda itself.

“I love the school,” said Bolick in Filipino after leading the Red Lions to a 73-68 win over rival Letran Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre in the NCAA Season 93 men’s basketball tournament.

“I’ll just repeat what I’ve been saying all along, I was just a bench player when I started for San Beda and they’ve accepted with a full heart.”

Bolick had planned on submitting his draft papers but ultimately decided against it.

San Beda head coach Boyet Fernandez welcomed Bolick’s plan of staying.

“The only advice I gave him is look at the future because it will always be better if he graduates,” said Boyet of the Marketing major. “I really appreciated that Robert took the other way and stayed with San Beda. I cannot ask for more, having Robert in my lineup next year will be good for us.”

Bolick is averaging 12.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 5.3 assists for the Red Lions, who are Final four bound for yet another year.

He also posted similar numbers in the PBA D-League for Cignal with 12.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 3.3 assists.

“I went to the States because of San Beda, and I’m an American and that was my first time going to the US. I love everyone, from the security guards, to the janitors, to the teachers, everyone.”
