Manganti nailed the game-winner in Adamson’s 73-71 win over UP in the first round of the Season 80 tournament and he replicated that in the Falcons’ 69-68 thriller over the Maroons in the first round of Season 81.“It’s just a series of coincidences,” said Manganti, who finished with 10 points and six rebounds.What was different in this dagger and his game-winners of the past was this one had Jerrick Ahanmisi in the mix.Manganti’s previous clutch baskets against the Fighting Maroons were layups at the end of the shot clock and were primarily his own doing, this time there was Ahanmisi, who found him open in the right wing.“It’s just the connection, I went to the basket and I didn’t have anything so I pulled back and saw him in the corner and I passed it to him,” said Ahanmisi, who had 24 points, six rebounds, and three assists.ADVERTISEMENT Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown MOST READ Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Another side note, Manganti was shooting just 22 percent from deep entering the game.This led Adamson head coach Franz Pumaren to joke about Manganti’s confidence.“In short, makapal ang mukha (he’s barefaced),” said Pumaren whose team improved to an 8-2 record and earned at least a playoff for a Final Four spot.As for UP’s heartbreaker, he just doesn’t shy away from big shots.“I never shy away from a shot like that and I want to take those shots,” said Manganti. “I never think of percentages.” Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?
