Meneses lauds Teodoro’s heroics vs Pingoy, Adamson
If there’s one person Jose Rizal University head coach Vergel Meneses trusts, it has to be Teytey Teodoro.
Meneses virtually put Teodoro atop a pedestal after the Heavy Bombers blasted Adamson, 67-56, in their quarterfinals matchup in the Filoil Flying V Preseason Premier Cup.
Teodoro had Falcon guard Jerrie Pingoy hounding him throughout the match but JRU’s husky wingman still managed to put up a game-high 23 points.
“Actually, he didn’t find any difficulty against Pingoy,” said Meneses as they advanced to the semifinals of the pre-season league. “If there’s one person who’ll stop Teytey, it would be Teytey.”
“Well, there are two people who can stop Teytey, himself and me. If I don’t put him in the game, then I stopped him. If he doesn’t want to play, he stops himself.”
Teodoro, however, isn’t a man to talk about his talents that much, and he said he was just following Meneses’ orders.
“I’m just ready every game, it depends on coach Vergel on how we will play,” said Teodoro. “Whatever the game plan is, that’s what I’ll do.”
