La Salle back in the mix for ‘two-and-thru’ Zavier Lucero

Zavier Lucero and his camp met with officials from De La Salle University through Zoom, Monday morning (Manila time).

And the Lucero family liked what they heard from them.

“The bosses from La Salle told Zavier about their championship aspirations for the upcoming UAAP seasons,” said Fil-Am Nation Select founder Cris Gopez.

“So, La Salle’s offer is still on the table.”

With this, Lucero is choosing from three schools for his master’s studies, according to Gopez — namely La Salle, Ateneo, and University of the Philippines.

Lucero played for four years in Cal State Maritime Academy. During that time, he also obtained his degree in International Business and Logistics.

In his first three years with the Keelhaulers, the lanky and athletic 6-foot-6 forward averaged 15.0 points on 49.3-percent shooting and 8.3 rebounds. During the 2019-20 season alone, he normed team-highs 19.4 markers and 10.2 boards per contest.

During his junior year, he was part of NAIA Division II’s All-American Team to add to his many personal feats — including three All-Cal Pac Conference First Team selections and a Freshman of the Year Award in 2018.

Just like in the NCAA, NAIA will not count the senior years of its student-athletes due to it being affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Lucero is set to arrive this August to visit each campus before making a decision.

Due to him already obtaining his collegiate degree, the 22-year-old Lucero will immediately be eligible come UAAP Season 84. He will have a maximum of two years to play in the UAAP.
