Prince Orizu bids FEU Tamaraws farewell


The Prince Tamaraw signs off

After four fruitful years with the Far Eastern University Tamaraws, Prince Orizu has decided to move on to the next stage of his life.

Saturday afternoon, the 6-foot-8 Nigerian expressed his gratitude to the 91-year-old institution for five great years.

“I always bleed gold and green,” the 23-year-old tweeted.

“Maraming, maraming salamat FEU community. Sobrang nagpapasalamat ako sa mga pagkakataon na nabigay niyo sa akin.”

With this, the Tamaraws will enter the UAAP Season 82 Men’s Basketball tournament without six key student-athletes – Orizu, Jasper Parker, Axel Iñigo, RJ Ramirez, Richard Escoto, and Arvin Tolentino.

When their Season 81 campaign ended, FEU head coach Olsen Racela confessed that he wanted Orizu to have one last run with the Tamaraws.

“Prince Orizu, hindi ko pa alam. He has one more year left next year, but hindi ko alam ang plano niya, so mag-uusap pa kami,” disclosed Racela.

In the ongoing 2019 PBA D-League tournament, however, Cha Dao-FEU have fielded Cameroonian slotman Patrick Tchuente.

Orizu made the Final Four in every year he played for FEU, finishing his collegiate career with one gold and a silver medal.

In his final year, the Nigerian Men’s National Basketball team player posted norms of 8.3 rebounds and 7.2 points.
