Menina leaves Mapua, transfers to NU
Darell Menina is now a Bulldog.
The 5-foot-8 playmaker has transferred from Mapua University to his new home in National University, leaving the Cardinals where he spent his first two years in the collegiate level.
The Cebuano guard confirmed his supposed transfer, sharing that he has already enrolled in the Jhocson-based campus.
“Yes, I’m already in NU. I also want to play in the UAAP,” said Menina in Filipino.
Mapua coach Atoy Co is aware of the development as he braces for NCAA Season 93 without Menina.
The Cardinals have already suffered a huge blow with reigning two-time NCAA MVP Allwell Oraeme opting to sit out this season.
Menina averaged 8.9 points on a 27.3-percent shooting from three, to go with 1.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists in his sophomore year in Mapua, as the Cardinals advanced to the Final Four for the second straight season.
He will sit out this upcoming UAAP Season 80, but will be eligible to play for three years for the Bulldogs.
