CJ Perez has been leading the way for the best team in the NCAA
It’s been an exhilarating start for the NCAA Season 93! Here, we’ll talk about the standout performers so far, the players who are bringing out the swag in every game and propelling their teams to victory.
CJ Perez, LPU Pirates
CJ Perez’s comeback tour after his three-year hiatus from the league has been nothing short of spectacular. The leader of the only unbeaten team in the NCAA (with an 8-0 record as of this writing), Baby Beast has been posting stellar numbers in the first month of the season. Perez leads the league in points per game (18.6) and also averages 3.2 assists, 5.3 rebounds, and 1.5 steals. The early MVP candidate has been doing it all, but he also never fails to involve his teammates.
Kent Salado, Arellano Chiefs
Filling that Jio Jalalon-shaped void is no walk in the park. But Kent Salado stepped up, and it’s like Jio never left. With him at the helm, the Chiefs remain a respectable squad despite being in a slump recently. In the first month of play, he’s second in the league in all of these categories: points per game (18.3), assists per game (4.5), and steals per game (1.7). There’s a reason why Coach Jerry Codinera now refers to him as the team’s heart and soul.
Robert Bolick, SBC Red Lions
Anointed as the new King Lion, Robert Bolick has been living up to his stature this early in the season. Bolick may not always lead in points, but he’s been contributing in a variety of ways that go beyond scoring. SBC’s main man leads the league in total assists (40) and assists per game (5). He also averages 12.4 points and 7.7 rebounds. Bolick’s versatility is why the Lions have only one loss so far, and the reason many regard him as the amateurs’ finest two-way player right now.
Rey Nambatac, Letran Knights
The Knights started from the bottom with a 1-3 record and now they’re here, sitting pretty in third place with a 5-4 mark. Leading the crusade is team captain Rey Nambatac, whose well-rounded game (he averages 17.3 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game) has steered
Letran to a four-game winning streak. And despite their starting center Jeo Ambohot’s injury, Nambatac and the rest of the Knights intend to keep their streak going.
Sidney Onwubere, EAC Generals
EAC is regarded by some as this season’s dark horse, and Sidney Onwubere is bent on stampeding all over the competition. The Filipino-Nigerian believes that this is the Generals’ best chance to make the Final Four, which is why he’s been leaving his all on the court in every game. EAC’s captain has been a monster, so far—he scores 14.1 points and grabs 11.13 rebounds per outing. This is similar to his numbers in the previous season; only this time, Onwubere has an even more potent offensive game and is primed to lift EAC to new heights.
