Quiambao hopes good pal Baclaan goes to DLSU

For the past few weeks, Kevin Quiambao has been nostalgic.

Even before Kean Baclaan bade farewell to National University, the reigning UAAP Most Valuable Player had been posting photos of him and his best friend when they used to play in rec leagues.

“Si Kean, matagal ko nang kaibigan yan. Kababata ko siya sa Muntinlupa,” Quiambao shared to Tiebreaker Times.

“Nakaka-miss din siya makasama sa court, sa totoo lang, kasi masaya siya kasama.”

That is why when Baclaan left NU, Quiambao immediately called up his friend, wooing Baclaan to join him at De La Salle University.

“Tinawagan ko siya kagad nun paglabas niyo ng storya,” he recalled.

“Sabi ko, sana kami piliin mo.”

Quiambao did add that Baclaan remains undecided, still searching for what is best for him moving forward.

For his part, the 6-foot-6 all-around forward is back in the lab, preparing for Strong Group Athletics’ campaign in the 33rd Dubai International Basketball Tournament.

“Tulad nga ng sabi ko, gagawin namin ang lahat para mabalik yung championship dito sa ‘tin,” the Gilas pool member continued.

By the time the tournament ends, Quiambao hopes that Baclaan has already made his decision.

“Sana pagbalik ko, sa amin na siya naka-commit,” quipped Quiambao.
