QMB is UP’s final piece for UAAP Season 87 puzzle


University of the Philippines’ big-time plans for a big-time bounce back in UAAP Season 87 just got a big-time boost.

Six-foot-10 Filipino-American Quentin Millora-Brown is joining the Fighting Maroons for their redemption campaign, commencing on September 7 at the Araneta Coliseum.

He will be eligible right away as a masters student-athlete.

The modern big, nicknamed ‘QMB,’ suited up for Citadel last year and posted per-game averages of 11.2 points, 9.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.5 blocks.

Prior to that, he played three years with Vanderbilt after seeing action for Rice University in his rookie season.

The 2020-21 season does not count on his ledger as it was under pandemic conditions.

Millora-Brown is expected to be yet another weapon for State U head coach Goldwin Monteverde, especially following the departure of former MVP Malick Diouf.

He joins Nigerian Dikachi Udodo, Francis Lopez, Aldous Torculas, Gani Stevens, Sean Alter, Mark Belmonte, and Seven Gagate in the maroon-and-green frontline.

“Malaking bagay na naman para sa atin yung pagpasok niya kasi makakatulong siya to step up para sa pagkawala ni Malick,” said Monteverde.

The transferee is slated to arrive in Manila this coming weekend and will be thrust right into training with the MBT, fresh off a weeks-long training camp in Serbia.

The Fighting Maroons won it all for the first time in 36 years in Season 84 and then finished with back-to-back silver medals.
