SJ Belangel will still be wearing blue and white in college
UAAP champion Ateneo de Manila University is turning its strength to an even greater strength.
The Blue Eagles are all set to welcome Juniors champion and Mythical selection SJ Belangel to their loaded guard rotation. “Mag-stay po ako sa Ateneo,” he told ABS-CBN Sports.
Belangel will be another jewel in Katipunan’s dazzling backcourt crown that already has Anton Asistio, Aaron Black, Gian Mamuyac, Matt Nieto, Tyler Tio and the returning Adrian Wong.
The will six-foot guard will be the perfect sparkplug for the defending champions while he waits his turn at the steering wheel.
Belangel finished third in the UAAP Juniors MVP race on the back of per game counts of 17.2 points in 52.3 percent shooting, 5.2 rebounds, 4.6 assists, and 1.7 steals.
He also acted as the court general who steered the Blue Eaglets onto their first championship in three years.
