MANILA, Philippines—After opening the season with nine straight losses, Emilio Aguinaldo College finally entered the win column behind veteran Nat Cosejo.

The 6-foot-3 forward dropped a career-high 24 points on 65 percent shooting that went with nine rebounds and a block in the Generals’ breakthrough victory over league-leading College of St. Benilde last Sunday.

In his last two outings, Cosejo averaged 13.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and a block, earning him the Collegiate Press Corps NCAA Player of the Week, presented by the Philippine Sports Commission.

“I hope this win will give us confidence because we lacked confidence in the past that’s why we’ve been coming up short. Hopefully, with this victory, we’ll continue to win more games,” he said in Filipino
