Bolick seems like not a rookie in his professional basketball career debut.
In the first quarter alone, he immediately registered 10 points. The kid definitely has a high basketball IQ. He knows when to shoot his three-pointer and know when to step up the pedal for a quick sprint to the basket.
Coach Pido Jarencio inserted the former San Beda Red Lions standout as one of his starters along with Stanley Pringle.
Bolick logged 26 points with a very sharp shooting from the field. He converted 10 shots out of his 12 attempts. He also made three rebounds and three assists.
“Swerte lang ako sa team, ang babait nila eh. Yung mga beterano, yun pa yung mababait. Sobrang swerte ko as a player na ganito kaagad yung napuntahan kong team,” said Bolick.
For the Blackwater side, their rookies also played well in their first PBA outing.
NorthPort Batang Pier next game is scheduled on January 20 against the NLEX Road Warriors while Blackwater Elite next game is on January 19 versus the Meralco Bolts.
