NCAA: San Beda adds two more recruits
MANILA, Philippines—The busy offseason continues for the San Beda Red Lions.
After gaining the services of Richi Calimag and Joe Celzo last month, the Red Lions have locked in Far Eastern University’s Bryan Sajonia and University of the Philippines’ Bismarck Lina—in only one week.
Lina made the move to Mendiola on Wednesday while Sajonia followed suit the day after.
“I decided to move for my personal growth. I had to think long and hard about this,” said Lina.
The big man played sparingly for the Fighting Maroons despite having a promising high school career in UST.
He was a member of the UAAP Season 82 boys’ basketball tournament’s Mythical Five. Lina was also a former player for Batang Gilas back in 2016.
Sajonia’s entry to the team is something coach Yuri Escueta is highly excited for as well.
“He is not just a shooter but also a very good defender,” Escueta said.
Sajonia, who was a huge factor for FEU back in Season 85 with 11.17 points per game, has a game similar to Tony Ynot.
Ynot left the team last month along with Justine Sanchez.
Lina and Sajonia will have to sit out one year due to residency.
