Clint Escamis dominates NCAA 99, hailed Rookie MVP


For the third straight season, the NCAA Most Valuable Player is a transferee from the UAAP.

Clint Escamis has been hailed the NCAA Season 99 Seniors Basketball Most Valuable Player, winning the award via a wide margin.

Escamis, 23, garnered 53.16 PAV – way ahead of the rest of the field to win the top honor in the league.

As a transferee, he was also the Rookie of the Year.

Escamis dazzled in the elimination round, averaging 16.28 points, 5.83 rebounds, 4.22 assists, and 3.78 steals per game.

Escamis transferred from University of the East to Mapua a year ago.

The last two MVPs of the league were former UST winger Rhenz Abando (Letran) and ex-UP big man Will Gozum (CSB).

Others who won MVP in their first year in the Grand Old League were San Beda’s Sam Ekwe in 2006, Philippine Christian University’s Gabby Espinas in 2004, Mapua’s Allwell Oraeme in 2015, and Abando in 2021*.
