Player of the Week again, Serrano spreading his wings even further

UP, UP, AND AWAY. Encho Serrano and Adamson are aiming for nothing but even greater heights.
Make that three weeks in a row with an Adamson High School Baby Falcon as the top individual performer in the UAAP 79 Juniors Basketball Tournament.
Better yet, make that two out of four weeks with Encho Serrano as Player of the Week.
Posting what has now become his usual double-double of 22 points and 15 rebounds, the “all-heart” rookie was yet again at the forefront as Adamson simply toyed with lowly University of the East before ultimately obliterating them by 83 points, 130-47.
Making good on 63 percent of his field goals, there wasn’t an opportunity Serrano left to waste. “Trabaho pa rin lang po talaga,” he expressed as his non-stop effort has proven itself to be no fluke.
Banking on his huge heart, the five-foot-11 swingman edged out teammate Gerry Abadiano, Nazareth School of National University’s Rhayyan Amsali, and Ateneo de Manila High School’s RV Berjay for the weekly citation.
The Baby Falcons swept the first round and have yet to find their match in the tournament. Without a doubt, Serrano is a major reason for that.
