Thank You, Jack!

by Jose Antonio A. Conde

PASIG CITY–Thank you, Coach Jack Santiago! Without Coach Franz Pumaren, DLSU could still win. The DLSU Green Archers shocked the UST Growling Tigers because of a one player who made the unforgettable shot that would simply never forget, rookie Maui Villanueva.

The DLSU Green Archers won over the UST Growling Tigers, 81-79 in Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City thanks to that shot. It was actually LA Revilla who supposedly made the shot simply because he is a fast PG, but he didn’t made but suddenly Villanueva made that shot and in! Thus, this was the coaching debut of Jack Santiago who temporarily takes over DLSU from Franz Pumaren. Pumaren is in Iran for the RP Youth Team purposed who are playing in a basketball tournament. At first, it was DLSU who ran over the lead but UST fought back in the next period but in the 3rd, both teams have exchanging performances like Jervy Cruz and JV Casio, a strong comeback was made by JV Casio and Maui Villanueva who had superb performances respectively.

Technically, Coach Jack is a Mapua Cardinal. Formerly a successful poing guard in the amateurs, Jack made some noise while playing for the PBA. He played for the Sunkist Orange Bottlers and Sta. Lucia Realtors, he is a member of SLR’s first ever championship in the 2001 Governor’s Cup vs. the San Miguel Beermen, 4-2. He was technically on the bench then. He later eventually retired and joined the DLSU coaching staff in 2002 wherein former SLR assistant Franz Pumaren was the head coach until becoming Franz’s chief assistant in 2005, a poisition he holds up to this day.

Now Jack has proven that he could also do it in the reigns of coaching in college hoops, he may have a bright future as a coach in any schools, either MIT or DLSU. Good luck Jack! And thank you! So well…

Here’s Coach Jack’s Interview (from YouTube) after the game. Thanks to the InboundPASS, a college hoops source.

    bro. i hope you don’t take this the wrong way, but you really need lots and lots of practice before you become the sportswriter you want to be. your articles are really bad. but i hope you improve. just work on your stuff.

    Ton this is my reply for the concerned person…
    I know you are concern about my friend, I’m not being rude to you ok…
    I think you should be amazed at my friend cause we are just grade 6 and he can right articles in his age but I think you’re right because my classmate really needs practice to reach his dream to be a sportswriter and I believe that he can do that he just need somebody to believe that he can do it and not to tell him that he’s a bad writer cause I believe in him…

    Thanks for the advise that’s really nice…

    Jack was a member of Mapua’s Back-to-back championships in 1990 and 1991 led by Ruben Dela Rosa and Coach Joel Banal.
