With the likes of Bryan Bagunas, Francis Saura, Madz Gampong, and Kim Malabunga leaving due to graduation, UAAP Season 81 Rookie of the Year Nico Almendras of NU is in search for a new mentor.
“Una siyempre ‘yung adjustments namin, kasi madami [‘yung] seniors na grumaduate at madami din [kaming] bago na dumating,” Almendras explained.
“So, ‘yun ‘yung pinakamalaking adjustment na ginawa namin ngayon.”
Luckily for him, though, a former UAAP Rookie of the Year in Edward Camposano has taken him under his wings.
“Siyempre masaya kasi nakasama ko sa team si kuya Edward.
“Bilang isang kuya mas naga-guide niya ako sa game at crucial moments kasi madami na din siyang naging experience,” he said.
Camposano, the Season 77 Rookie of the Year who transferred to NU from UE back in 2017, has been a big boost for the young Sta. Elena Ball Hammers, providing them with veteran presence and stability.
Almendras is just glad to have Camposano by his side especially now that his seniors have already graduated.
“Okay naman kasi ginampanan niya ‘yung pagiging isang mabuting leader sa team.”
