Perasol believes top Maroons playmaker will get better with Mighty stint
University of the Philippines coach Bo Perasol believes that playmaker Juan Gomez de Liaño would become a better player after his stint with the Mighty Sports in the Dubai International Basketball Tournament slated on Feb. 1 to 9.
“I personally know the strength of the competition there. I am sure that Juan will gain tremendously from that tournament,” said Perasol of his veteran guard, who made heads turn with his performance during the team’s Final Four duel with Adamson in the UAAP.
“I am sure that whatever experience Juan will gain from the Dubai tournament, he will share to his teammates,” added Perasol.
The UP Maroons beat the twice-to-beat Falcons in the semifinals to advance to the Finals for the first time in 32 years, with De Liaño coming up with clutch performances anchored on his hot shooting.
