Subido, Haruna, FEU troika to try luck in PBA Draft


UST’s Renzo Subido, Saint Benilde’s Yankie Haruna, and FEU trio Barkley Eboña, Ino Comboy, and Hubert Cani have thrown their names in the 2019 PBA Rookie Draft on Wednesday.

The most surprising of the bunch was 5-foot-7 Subido, since he still has a commitment to MPBL club San Juan Knights.

Subido was undoubtedly the star of the UAAP Season 82 Men’s Basketball stepladder, with his heroics propelling the Growling Tigers to an unexpected Finals appearance.

And he is looking to build on this.

“I feel excited about living my dream, which is being able to play in the PBA if given a chance. The PBA is what all my hard work was for,” said Subido, who averaged 8.8 points on 34-percent shooting from threes, 3.8 assists, and 2.1 rebounds during his final year.

Meanwhile, Eboña, Comboy, Cani, and Haruna were expected to enter the draft after their stay in their respective colleges.

Eboña will be one of the tallest prospects entering the draft, standing at 6-foot-5. In his final year with the Tamaraws, he averaged 7.07 points and 7.07 rebounds per game.

The 6-foot Comboy and the 5-foot-10 Cani normed 10.27 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 1.87 assists; and 2.87 points, 1.93 rebounds, and 1.33 assists, respectively.

The trio led the Tamaraws to an unexpected fourth-place finish.

Finally, Haruna is an athletic 6-foot-3 winger who posted norms of 8.8 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 1.5 assists.

The annual rookie showpiece takes place on Sunday, December 8 at Robinson’s Place Manila.

With this, Subido, Eboña, Comboy, and Cani are no longer eligible to play in the UAAP Season 82 3×3 tournament next year.
