Renzo Navarro still adjusting in his return to San Sebastian
Going back to his roots, Renzo Navarro admits that times truly have changed since he left San Sebastian.
“There’s still a lot of adjustment for me,” the diminutive guard said.
The same goes for him basketball-wise as the former Golden Staglet standout prepares to suit up for the Golden Stags this upcoming NCAA Season 93.
A year of residency really helps, and Navarro said that he’s slowly getting his groove back, thanks to no less than coach Egay Macaraya and his staff.
“I’m still adjusting, but with my teammates and coaches’ help, I’m adapting,” said the La Salle transferee.
The 19-year-old Navarro did admit that he’s still far from his usual form, but vowed that come the collegiate season, he will be able to get to his desired shape.
“I believe that I still need to improve my conditioning. I’m still at 70 to 80 percent, but I think I can eventually achieve that game weight,” he said.
And Macaraya expressed confidence with Navarro going forward as San Sebastian continues its preparation for the collegiate season.
“We have no problem with Renzo because he’s a kid from Baste,” said Macaraya. “The only thing is that he has to be fit for our running game. He admits that he’s still having difficulties going back in this kind of competition, that’s why we’re playing him in every league we join in so that come the NCAA, he’ll get used to it already.”
