Tata Dha is 'the real MVP' behind Kevin Quiambao's success

BACK in October 21, 2023 when Kevin Quiambao was one assist shy of a triple-double versus University of the East, La Salle head coach Topex Robinson bared how his sophomore ace nearly sat the game out altogether.

That same day marked the fourth death anniversary of his 'Tatay' Dha Argana, Quiambao's grandfather who he described as one of two father figures who taught him the game of basketball.

"Kevin (Quiambao) came here in this game with so much emotion because it’s his lolo’s death anniversary. He was even contemplating on missing this game because he grew up with his grandparents.

That’s why he said prior to the game: ‘Coach, ikaw na’ng bahala sa ’kin. I might not really be okay.’ It’s because it’s something so attached sa kanya," Robinson said after La Salle's first-round win against UE, in which Quiambao posted 17 points, 12 boards, and nine assists.

Just over a month later, Quiambao stands tall as a newly crowned UAAP champion, Finals MVP, and league MVP after also being hailed Rookie of the Year back in Season 85.

And more than the historic feats he had set all-year long, the immeasurable chance to honor the memory of his Tatay Dha was his greatest prize of all.
