After failing to pick up the Most Valuable Player crown last season, as the Perpetual Altas did not make the Final Four, Prince Eze can finally declare that he’s done it.
Monday afternoon, the graduating 6-foot-10 Nigerian was crowned the Most Valuable Player of the NCAA Season 94 Seniors Basketball Tournament.
Eze averaged 17.9 points, 16.3 rebounds, and 3.3 blocks per game to accumulate 61.39 Player All-Around Value points.
Joining him in the All-NCAA team are Bong Quinto of Letran and the San Beda troika of Robert Bolick, Javee Mocon, and Donald Tankoua.
Tankoua was not supposed to be part of the Mythical Team, but CJ Perez was disqualified from receiving any post-season awards due to a suspension slapped on him. Perez tallied 58.28 SPs.
Eze also bagged the Defensive Player of the Year plum.
Completing the All-Defensive Team are Hamadou Laminou of EAC, Mike Nzeusseu of Lyceum, Michael Calisaan of San Sebastian, and Tankoua.
Clement Leutcheu of Benilde was supposed to be the last member of the team, but was suspended during the season. Tankoua once again benefited.
Larry Muyang of Letran was adjudged the top freshman of the year, while Archie Concepcion of Arellano was awarded with the Most Improved Player plum.
