Player of the Week Dagangon taking charge for Altas

With Earl Scottie Thompson already in the pros, Perpetual Help’s first order of things was to find a true leader.

Enter Gab Dagangon.

Dagangon has assumed the leadership role after Thompson left and, recently, dropped a 22-point, nine-rebound and two-block performance to help the University of Perpetual Help System Dalta Altas down the Arellano University Chiefs, 76-62, in the 92nd NCAA basketball tournament at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan City.

For his effort, Dagangon bagged his first ACCEL Quantum/3XVI-NCAA Press Corps Player of the Week award.

“Gusto ko lang tulungan ang team namin at mag-lead sa mga bata naming players,” Dagangon said.

Next to Nigerian teammate Bright Akhuetie, Dagangon has been the second most consistent player in the Las Pinas-based team’s fold as he has been averaging 14 points, 8.2 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and a block a game.

He could step up big too if necessary as seen in the huge win over the Chiefs.

Dagangon bested Emilio Aguinaldo’s Sydney Onwubere and Hamadou Laminou and Letran’s Rey Nambatac for the weekly plum.
