College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills is not resting on its laurels as it nears the beginning of its title defense in the NCAA 94 Juniors Basketball Tournament.
Already with Mythical selections Joel Cagulangan and Inand Fornilos leading the way, the Junior Blazers are now also welcoming Batang Gilas player RC Calimag into the fold.
With the move, Calimag will be transferring La Salle campuses – already having played two seasons for De La Salle Zobel.
A year ago, the 17-year-old normed 14.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, and one assist, but the Junior Archers missed out on the Final Four.
Now, Calimag will be teaming up with Cagulangan, Fornilos, and Joshua David as CSB-LSGH tries to go back-to-back.
The 6-foot-2 swingman will be placed in the spot left behind by now-University of Sto. Tomas player Makoy Marcos.
He will be bringing along with him the valuable experience he earned from representing the Philippines in the FIBA Asia Under-16 Tournament.
