KaTropa unleash new weapon in Jericho Cruz

TNT has a new weapon in Jericho Cruz. He was promptly unleashed Wednesday in the 2018 Philippine Cup.

Playing his first game for the KaTropa, Cruz, acquired from a trade with Rain or Shine, started at guard and led the team in scoring with 17 points.

He was one of the keys in helping TNT get a crucial win.

"I'm excited kanina kaya medyo kinontrol ko lang yung sarili ko," Cruz said.

"I put in the game kanina and good results naman. At tsaka syempre, yung tiwala ni coach Nash sa akin sobrang taas kaya gusto ko lang suklian," he added.

Cruz's arrival at TNT solves some of the team's glaring issues on offense.

And his first game certainly showed that that's the case.

"Major contribution," head coach Nash Racela said. "It's no secret that at this point, our team has no depth, and the addition of Jericho helps us in our rotation. It gives us an extra gut whom we can give major minutes."

"Malaking tulong si Jericho samin. Kasi kung makita niyo naman kanina, kahit nasa bench ako, at least may nago-operate ng offense," Jasyon Castro said of his new teammate.
