East West Private continues to help the Filipino prospect find a chance to shine abroad.
Far Eastern University-Diliman’s Cholo Anonuevo arrived in Ohio, USA yesterday to train with EWP.
“Tomorrow let the training begin! We are excited to help you reach your dreams,” EWP’s Instagram post read.
The 6-foot-4 all-around swingman averaged 9.2 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.6 assists, and 2.0 steals in 27 minutes during his second and final year with the Baby Tamaraws.
Right after the UAAP Season 82, the 18-year-old committed to play for FEU.
However, Anonuevo’s priority is not with playing for the Tamaraws come UAAP Season 83 tournament, according to FEU head coach Olsen Racela. All he wants for the nephew of his brother Nash is for him to improve his game with EWP and find opportunities in the US.
Racela also assured that FEU is always there for Anonuevo when he decides to come back.
“There are actually a lot of options for him this coming year, and FEU is still one of them,” said Racela.
“But right now, his focus is to get better and take advantage of this opportunity that East West Private has given him.”
Fellow Tamaraw Ken Tuffin is also making waves abroad, playing for Taranaki in the NZ NBL.
Another Filipino training with EWP right now is seven-foot big Fil-Hawaiian Sage Tolentino.
