Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netThough there’s still a remote possibility of Emilio Aguinaldo College squeaking into the NCAA Season 93 Final Four picture with a 6-10 card, Sidney Onwubere has already accepted his team’s fate.The Generals were often inconsistent as they struggled fight through injuries to their key cogs through the course of the season.ADVERTISEMENT But though the season is already lost, the Fil-Nigerian forward said that EAC can still finish the season on a high as it faces St. Benilde on Thursday and Perpetual to cap off its eliminations schedule next week.“I just told my teammates to enjoy our remaining games. Maybe that’s our goal right now, to finish the season strong,” he said.As Onwubere’s collegiate career winds down, he’s also hoping to impart some valuable lessons to his teammates in their final two games.“I want to show them that we can achieve a lot if we work hard. That’s something I want them to learn: the work ethic,” he said. “Even though we’re missing some of our teammates due to injury, we still have to work and show that we’re competing. In these last two games, I want them to do their best, work hard, and enjoy our game.”But if there’s one thing Onwubere won’t settle for, it’s ending his collegiate career on the losing end.ADVERTISEMENT Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award “All I want is for us to win,” he said. “I don’t want to graduate on a losing note, that my last game in EAC will be a loss.
