MANILA, Philippines—University of the Philippines continued to beef up its frontcourt after successfully acquiring the commitment of big man Gani Stevens.

Stevens, who originally arrived in the country last year for University of Santo Tomas, moved to University of the East for UAAP Season 85 and now found his new home in Diliman.

“Adding another young, hardworking center in Gani will certainly give us more versatility in our frontcourt as we continue to build our program in the seasons to come,” coach Goldwin Monteverde said.


Stevens is expected to fill in the center position when Malick Diouf exits the Fighting Maroons camp in Season 87.

The 6-foot-7 bruiser showed glimpses of his paint presence last season with the Red Warriors after posting norms of 9.4 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game.

The Filipino-American will have three playing years with the Season 85 finalists.

Stevens is just one of the squad’s big signings in the offseason, joining the likes of Seven Gagate, Luis Pablo and Sean Alter.
