Big boys Arana, Calma, Ambohot enter PBA Draft

Three of the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s finest big men have thrown their names in the 2022 PBA Rookie Draft.

Arellano’s Justin Arana, San Sebastian’s JM Calma, and Letran’s Jeo Ambohot have all submitted their draft applications over the past week.

Out of the three, Arana is seen as a sure top four pick.

Arana, who is set to win his second Defensive Player of the Year award, averaged 14.78 points, 17.11 rebounds, and 2.78 blocks during NCAA Season 97.

He was the frontrunner to win the MVP award had the Chiefs made it to the Final Four as he tallied 62.875 Player Average Value (PAV) for the season.

Calma, meanwhile, averaged 16.89 points, 10.33 rebounds, and 1.0 blocks for the Golden Stags while Ambohot is norming 10.56 points, 9.78 rebounds, and 1.56 blocks per contest for the Knights.

The trio are set to be part of the NCAA’s Mythical and Defensive teams.

Other NCAA players that are set to enter the draft are Letran’s Christian Fajarito and Allen Mina; Lyceum’s Jerwin Guinto; and EAC’s CJ Cadua.

The draft is set to take place on May 15.
