Juan GDL, Carino reinforce Mapua-laden Marinerong Pilipino

Two former B.League imports will beef up Marinerong Pilipino in the 2022 PBA D-League Aspirants Cup. 

Juan Gomez de Liaño and Kemark Carino will play for the Skippers in this conference.

Marinerong Pilipino head coach Yong Garcia confirmed the development to Tiebreaker Times.

Both Gomez de Liaño and Carino played in the B.League’s second division last season.

De Liaño, a 6-foot-1 guard out of University of the Philippines, played in 17 games for Tokyo Z, averaging 5.3 points, 2.4 assists, and 2.2 rebounds per contest.

Meanwhile, Carino, a 6-foot-8 big man out of San Beda, normed 1.9 points and 1.7 rebounds in 24 games played for Aomori.

Composing the rest of Marinerong Pilipino are student-athletes from NCAA Season 97 runner-up Mapua University.

The Cardinals are set to have a busy preseason, as they will also compete in the 2022 Pilipinas Super League Under-21 tournament and the 2022 Filoil Ecooil Preseason Cup.

Marinerong Pilipino, who joined the PBA D-League back in the 2017 Aspirants Cup, is looking to win its first crown. The Skippers came close during the 2019 Foundation Cup, only to lose in the best-of-three finals to BRT Sumisip Basilan-St. Clare.

Marinerong Pilipino will open its campaign against Apex Fuel-San Sebastian on Saturday at 12:30PM.
