Asset Managers sign up Lastimosa, Klisura; Gumabao out
Cocolife continued its extensive house-cleaning after it reportedly let go of team leader Michele Gumabao in favor of former University of Santo Tomas standout Pam Lastimosa.
Sources said Gumabao is taking a breather from volleyball to compete in a beauty pageant.
Lastimosa, who played for Sta. Lucia Realty, will bring firepower to the Asset Managers, along with two more acquisitions to be finalized soon.
Cocolife manager Joshua Ylaya also revealed their lineup of imports for the coming Philippine Superliga Grand Prix.
Sara Klisura, who saw action for Foton where she recorded the most number of points in a single game at 41, is in the list.
She will be joined by Taylor Milton in the conference that will begin Feb. 17.
“Hopefully we can be teammates and be successful together,” said Milton of her Serbian teammate. “I don’t mind having a permanent coffee date.”
On its maiden season, Cocolife finished fifth in the All-Filipino and fourth in the Grand Prix.
