TIP’s athletic forward Ximone Sandagon goes to FEU


Far Eastern University picked up one of the most intriguing players from the now-defunct Technological Institute of the Philippines basketball program.

Athletic forward Ximone Sandagon will head to the Tamaraws, according to FEU head coach Olsen Racela.

“Ximone has already committed to FEU. He will sit out one year and will have three years of eligibility,” said Racela, as Sandagon is only 21 years old and is an incoming junior transferee.

During the 2019 PBA D-League Foundation Cup, Sandagon showcased his versatility on both ends. The 6-foot-4 player averaged 7.6 points and 4.1 rebounds in 20 minutes of average game time.

Sandagon’s addition will be a welcome one for FEU come season 84, as Kenneth Tuffin and Brandrey Bienes will have graduated by then.

“FEU has always been on the lookout for long, athletic, and versatile players like Ximone. We recruited him because we needed help at the four-spot since KT and Rey will be playing their final year.”

Sandagon’s teammate Bryan Santos committed to UST two months ago.

TIP’s athletic program was disbanded due to the effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
