Cebuano Ron Marvis Dennison gearing up for tough semifinal battle ahead in PBA
Cebu City, Philippines — His numbers may not pop out but best believe when a defensive stop is needed, Cebuano wingman Ron Marvis Dennison will be ready when his number is called in the semifinal round of the PBA Philippine Cup.
Although the Phoenix Fuel Masters have yet to know who their opponent will be in the semis after TNT pushed the reigning champions San Miguel to a deciding Game Three in the quarterfinals, Dennison — the former University of the Visayas Baby Lancer — said he’s preparing himself for a tough battle up ahead.
Either way, he will be re-acquainted with familiar faces with San Miguel featuring prolific guard Terrence Romeo, Dennison’s former teammate on FEU and TNT boasting of fellow Cebuano Roger Pogoy, another former Tamaraw teammate.
“Sa ngayon, hindi ko pa alam. Basta mag-peprepare lang kami kahit sino pa ang makalaban namin. Lahat naman malalakas. Kailangan lang talaga na maging handa kami,” said Dennison who is averaging two points and a rebound in just seven minutes of action in the 10 games he’s played in so far.
While he is appreciative of Phoenix’s achievements this season, Dennison asserts that there remains a lot of work to be done.
“Siyempre thankful kay God na nakaabot ang team namin sa semis. Pinaghirapan talaga namin maabot ito at alam namin lahat na ito pa lang ang simula talaga ng laban at kailangan pa namin talaga mag practice pa para maabot din ang finals,” he added.
Dennison also admitted that he already has learned a lot in his first conference as a rookie and is taking everything in stride especially when defending some of the PBA’s finest perimeter players.
“Sa ngayon, medyo nakapag adjust na ako sa pro level. Marami na din akong natutunan at masasabi ko na iba talaga ang pro level lalo na ang mga binabantayan ko mga veterans na at puro magagaling. Iba talaga makalaban ang mga beterano.” /bmjo
