MANILA, Philippines—When Robert Bolick wants something, he apparently gets it.

On Saturday at Araneta Coliseum, NLEX routed Converge, 115-93, behind Bolick’s new career high–something he didn’t even realize he was gunning for until the latter part of the game.


“At the start of the game, I didn’t know. It was only towards the end that I found out,” said Bolick in Filipino when asked if he had been aware that he was close to his new career-best.

With the game already set in stone, 112-93, Bolick looked up at the scoreboard and asked for the ball with time expiring.

Above him was his name and his score that read 43.

Back in 2022 in Northport’s overtime win over Meralco, 101-95, the San Beda product exploded for 44 points to set a career-high in scoring.

Before the buzzer sounded, Bolick pulled up from deep to notch a new best with 46 points with eight assists and five rebounds to match.

Another thing he wanted and is about to get: a baby boy.

“That’s the best. This whole basketball thing is nothing compared to that. I prayed so hard for our baby to be a boy and it’s a boy,” said an ecstatic Bolick after the post-game conference.

“I have that on the way so of course, that’s an inspiration to me. I’m happy that she’s (Cassandra) there and she’s safe with our baby. Only a few months to go until the baby comes.”

Apparently, he’s also been asking around the team for fatherhood advice and fortunately, the Road Warriors have been delivering.

“All of them, I ask players who are already fathers, even the coaches. I’m ready, I’ll give it my all and I’m just proud that I’ll be a dad soon,” he said.
