Amsali, Sanchez, Ynot commit to San Beda Red Lions


The championship core of San Beda-Taytay will head to Mendiola.

San Beda University secured the commitment of do-it-all Rhayyan Amsali, big man Justine Sanchez, and defensive specialist Tony Ynot on Sunday.

And their experience playing together will be a big boost to the Red Lions, who are in the midst of their preparation for the NCAA Season 96 Seniors Basketball Tournament slated to begin on August 1.

“We are very happy with their decision to join the Red Lions team. They will surely add more depth to our team, which as you all know lost key players from last season,” said Red Lions team manager Jude Roque.

“They will also add championship experience to our young roster, having won the NCAA Juniors title last year.”

With the three leading the charge, the Red Cubs defeated Lyceum-Cavite in the finals to regain the juniors crown after three years.

Amsali, who stands at 6-foot-3, averaged 16.6 points, 9.0 rebounds, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.6 steals to lead the way for San Beda.

Six-foot-five Sanchez, on the other hand, had a breakout senior year, posting norms of 13.5 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 1.1 assists per contest. Ynot, a 5-foot-11 combo guard, also showed that he was more than just a stopper, averaging 12.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.5 steals per game.

The three were also instrumental for San Beda’s runner-up finish in the 2019 PSSBC tournament.

San Beda is still waiting on the decision of Yukien Andrada, who asked for more time before making his decision.
