MANILA, Philippines–Kevin Quiambao’s game has been on an upward trend for La Salle Green Archers but that did not surprise coach Topex Robinson one bit.

After the Green Archers’ dominant 101-79 victory over Letran, Robinson lauded Quiambao’s all-around effort that pushed them a step forward in the Filoil EcoOil Preseason Cup.


“Coming here, or at least when I came in, we already knew the potential of Kevin. We knew what he could bring,” said Robinson, who took over for La Salle in January.


Quiambao registered 23 points and six rebounds in the victory, all while showing efficiency from the field, sinking seven of his 14 tries.

The big man, meanwhile, was nothing but grateful after hearing Robinson’s words.

“I’m thankful that he’s (coach) always there behind me. He guides me with whatever decision I make on and off the court,” Quiambao said. “However, it’s not just about me. I have to always get my teammates involved.”

Quiambao has been flourishing under the tutelage of Robinson in almost every aspect despite it being the preseason.

The incoming sophomore is already posting averages of 16.6 markers, 7.6 boards and 3.7 assists per game.

The mentorship of Robinson with Quiambao and the Green Archers will be put to the test on Monday when they face National University in the semifinals.
