Despite being the clear-cut favorite to win the NCAA Season 98 Most Valuable Player, Will Gozum is still focused on the bigger prize.
And that is to win the championship for the College of Saint Benilde.
"Next goal naman, manalo kami para mag-finals naman," he said after the Blazers' 82-73 victory over San Beda. "Ilang years na since huling nag-finals, 20 years. So hopefully."
Benilde is already assured of a twice-to-beat advantage after being the Red Lions for the top two spots.
The Taft-based squad won an NCAA title in 2000 and last appeared in the Finals in 2002.
Which is why the UP transferee is determined to win it all for Benilde.
Siguro pag nag-champion kami, di lang kami yung happy kundi buong community yung happy," Gozum said. "Kapag individual award lang, ako lang yung masaya doon kaya unfair naman sa iba."
"Gusto ko buong community yung happy."
