Yap reveals secret in winning 3-point shootout contest

The 36-year-old Yap first won the prestigious event in 2009 when his closest pursuers Stanley Pringle and Terrence Romeo were not yet playing in the PBA.

“Ang tagal rin akong hindi nanalo sa nakalipas na siyam na taon sa 3-point shootout”, said Yap.

Ask what he did to bring back his deadly shooting touch Yap said he rediscovered it during practice.

“Parang mas kumpiyansa ako kapag sa kanan ko kinukuha ang bola bago mag shoot”, said Yap. Dati kasi sa kaliwa nakapuwesto yung rack bago i-shoot,” added Yap.

About five days before the competition he asked their ball boy to pass the ball on his right side before launching it just like what he did during games.

“Kaya dun sa competition nag-adjust ako at pumuwesto ako sa bandang kanan ng rack” added Yap.

He also revealed another secret of his deadly touch from the 3-point arc.

“Kailang maisipa ko yung kanang paa sa harapan. Pag nagawa ko yun mas malamang na pumasok ang bola , pero kung hindi malamang hindi pumasok ang bola”, said the owner of two PBA MVP awards.
