Alfred Aroga had a monster game in NU's championship clincher against FEU, and he dedicated his dominating performance in the 75-59 Game 3 win to his family.

Aroga told Dugout Philippines that the loved ones he left back home in Africa motivated him to play what could be the game of his life.

"My motivation was my family. I think about them everyday," the 6-7 center said.

Aroga particularly talked about his mother.

He said, "I can see how my mom is doing her best to take care the rest of my siblings."

To return the love she gave to him, Aroga vowed that he will play at his finest.

"I say to myself every time I go to the game, 'I need to give my best,'" he continued.

Aroga added, "Before the game, I called them. After the game, I called them, 'We won the championship today. I'm so thankful."

He concluded that he will communicate with them again through Skype.

Aroga scorched for 24 points on 7-of-11 field goal shooting, 18 rebounds, and two blocks to lead the Bulldogs to the win.

Not known for a good clip from the free throw line, Aroga made heads turn as he converted ten of 14 charities.

With a solid performance in the entire Finals series, Aroga was hailed as the Finals MVP.
