As one of UST’s most clutch hitters in UAAP Season 82, Renzo Subido has the greenest of green lights to shoot for the Growling Tigers.
The senior guard usually takes over the scoring duties at the point while his young backcourt tandem in Mark Nonoy handles the facilitating duties.
But with Nonoy, the newly-awarded Rookie of the Year, waxing hot for 16 points in UST’s sensational 89-69 win over UP in Final Four play Sunday, Subido was more than happy to take over as the Growling Tigers' more traditional point guard.
Renzo served up 12 assists in the victory over UP, matching the Fighting Maroon’s entire output as a team. The Growling Tigers dished out 23 dimes overall.
“I have teammates na magaling sa scoring,” Subido said as he racked up assists dishing it off to guys like Nonoy and Rhenz Abando.
“Today, my teammates were open and binigay ko lang bola sa kanila and na-shoot naman nila,” he added.
Subido has a role to play in this Growling Tigers team.
Some days he’s in charge of hitting clutch three-point shots to bury the opposition and some days he’s tasked of being the team’s true no. 1 point guard.
Just all in a day’s work for the graduating senior.
“Every game I play this season, I’m always there to do my role,” Subido said.
“Coach Aldin wanted me to be a cerebral point guard kaya I just did my job. I saw my teammates open, and I gave them the ball,” he added.
