AMA Online Education changed its earlier plans and picked homegrown playmaker Reed Baclig as the top selection in the 2020 PBA D-League Draft, Monday at PBA Office in Libis. 

The Mark Herrera-mentored Titans selected the little-known 5-foot-7 guard, who was part of the school’s grassroots program.

Projected top selection Jamie Malonzo slid to Marinerong Pilipino at second, giving the Foundation Cup runner-up a foundational talent in the 6-foot-6 high-flyer.

The 23-year-old Malonzo graduated from Portland State before taking his act to La Salle for one season. He was even a part of the Mythical Team this past UAAP Season 82.

Marinero were the clear winners of the draft, as coach Yong Garcia chose standouts like Joshua Torralba and Jollo Go of La Salle; James Spencer of UP; Darrell Menina of University of Cebu; and Miguel Gastador of University of San Jose-Recoletos.

Karate Kid-CEU also picked Gilas pool member Jaydee Tungcab as third overall pick, as it enters a new era under coach Jeff Napa.

Besides Tungcab, also joining the Scorpions are John Apacible of UE; Jboy Gob and David Murrell of UP; and Jerie Pingoy of Adamson.

Wangs-Letran participated in the draft after the fourth round after taking in school-based players in the first four rounds.

There were forty-one total draftees from the 137-strong pool, which lasted until the 20th round.

Eleven of the 12 participants in the upcoming 2020 PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup are school-based teams, with the tourney set to tip-off on February 13.
