MANILA, Philippines — San Beda got its first win with a second inning, thanks in large part to the efforts of big man JB Bahio.
Bahio received the nod as this week’s NCAA Player of the Week award was decided by the Collegiate Press Corps after leading the Red Lions to a 9-4 record.
The veteran has produced two doubles in multiple matches this week for the currently third-seeded San Beda team.
Against Arellano, Bahio finished with 10 points and 14 rebounds.
The center forward then saved the team mentored by Yuri Escueta in stoppage time with San Sebastian where he finished with 11 markers and 16 boards.
“I am just following my role. Whatever is lacking in the team in recovery, I will make up for it with hard work and effort. That’s what’s missing from our team,” he said in Filipino.
Bahio zoomed through Louie Sangalang and Fran Yu of Letran, John Barba of Lyceum and Joaqui Garcia of Mapua for the weekly plums presented by major sponsors the Philippine Sports Commission and the San Miguel Corporation.
