Sidney Onwubere's steady improvement is poised to continue as he heads to the PBA.
Before the PBA Draft this Sunday, let's revisit some of the college highlights of this year's top projected picks to offer a kind of glimpse of what they could bring in the pros.
SCHOOL: Emilio Aguinaldo College
Sidney Onwubere has slowly turned himself into a star during his NCAA stint with Emilio Aguinaldo College.
Starting out as a vaunted defensive specialist in the NCAA juniors, the Filipino-Nigerian was raw heading into college.
As a part of the Generals, he kept improving, year in, year out, and as a result, his final year with EAC was his best.
Showcasing an improved outside shot to complement his established inside game, Onwubere has since proven that he can get buckets while holding off the other team's best scorer.
As EAC's primary option in the NCAA season 93, he helped power the Generals to a respectable 7-11 record, even without their reinforcement Hamadou Laminou.
His all-around game is an intriguing part of his stock. Add in his experience as a proven leader, and he's a solid pick.
