James Yap dished out one of his finest performances and scored 30 points to carry B-MEG to a 91-81 victory over Rain or Shine in the ‘Governors’ Cup finals.’
It happened on the third death anniversary of his former mother-in-law and former president Corazon Aquino.
Yap dedicates his victory to the No. 1 fan Cory Aquino. Aquino was a basketball fanatic who always watched Yap’s games when she was still alive.
‘Cory’ was such a big fan when she was on her sickbed, she still made it a point to catch Yap’s games.
The basketball cager was once married to Aquino’s daughter Kris Aquino.
Yesterday August 1, the Aquino family, led by Kris and her brother President Benigno S. Aquino III commemorated their mother’s death anniversary with a mass at the Manila Memorial Park.
Yap could not join them because they were playing in the finals, but he is planning to visit Mrs. Aquino’s grave.
