It just so happens that this was a bad game for us.”ADVERTISEMENT Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. center_img MOST READ LATEST STORIES La Salle boosts Final Four bid, dumps UST by 41 points Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity.
