Janrey Pasaol to remain in FEU

Janrey Pasaol – the newly-minted UAAP Boys Basketball champion and Season 85 Mythical Team selection – has committed to moving up from the Baby Tamaraws to the Tamaraws and will continue his career in green and gold.

The 5-foot-11 guard led Far Eastern University-Diliman’s surprise championship run, which saw them dethrone National University Nazareth School and topple top-seeded Adamson University along the way, averaging 15.7 points, 6.7 assists, 4.9 rebounds, and 2.4 steals.

Pasaol will now reinforce longtime Tamaraws playmaker L-Jay Gonzales and stand next in the school’s long line of talented guards.

“I chose to stay at FEU because I am so grateful to them for the tremendous help they have given me, not just in basketball but also in life,” he said.

“I am also thankful because this is the school that others dream of attending, and I was given the chance to study and play here.”

The 18-year-old Davaoeno is the younger brother of current Meralco player Alvin Pasaol, who once scored 49 points for UE in a UAAP game. Janrey has shown glimpses of the same scoring prowess while also possessing a court general’s vision that allows him to set up his teammates.

FEU is looking to bounce back into playoff contention after seeing its eight-year Final Four streak snapped last season.

School legend Denok Miranda is its new coach, and the Tamaraws will continue to rely on Gonzales, as well as rising stars Patrick Sleat and Bryan Sajonia.

“He will be a big help to the team, especially since he already knows my system,” said Miranda, who was a constant sideline presence during the Baby Tamaraws’ season, of their new recruit.
