Jason Credo, Kyle Ong in Ateneo’s COVID reserve pool

Jason Credo will be on Ateneo’s reserve list for the UAAP Season 84 Men’s Basketball Tournament.

The 6-foot-4 swingman, who played in six games during Season 82, is nursing an ankle injury that forced Tab Baldwin to put him on the reserve list.

Also in the 17-20 slot of the Blue Eagles is 6-foot-7 big man Kyle Ong.

Both Credo and Ong were in Gilas’ pool during the national team’s build-up for the FIBA Asia Cup Qualifiers.

Completing the reserve list are guards Jacob Lao and Sean Quitevis.

Leading the four-peat-seeking Blue Eagles are seniors Angelo Kouame, SJ Belangel, Gian Mamuyac, Raffy Verano, Tyler Tio, Jolo Mendoza, Geo Chiu, Troy Mallillin, RV Berjay, and BJ Andrade.UAAP-82-MBB-DLSU-vs.-ADMU-Kouame-3999 Jason Credo, Kyle Ong in Ateneo's COVID reserve pool ADMU Basketball News UAAP  - philippine sports news

Verano and Mendoza were not part of the Season 82 team due to academics.

Also set to make his return to Katipunan is Dave Ildefonso.

Completing the team are rookies Chris Koon, Gab Gomez, Joshua Lazaro, and Forthsky Padrigao.

Baldwin said that the sessions of Ateneo for this year greatly differed from years past.

There were no international camps, no team-building events, and no send-offs.

“The bubble setup offers its advantages and disadvantages.

“We’re spending time together, and that’s an advantage with off-court time, and working on the mental side of the players,” he said.

“But it’s an abbreviated buildup since January. It’s such a short time to get these teams and players ready. That probably will be reflected by the performance of the teams. Nonetheless, the excitement of everybody will counterbalance the fact that we might not be playing our best kind of basketball, but it’s great to be back,” he continued.
