Terrafirma Dyip top PBA Draft pick Stephen Holt

Terrafirma Dyip top pick Stephen Holt.

MANILA, Philippines–Stephen Holt has considered himself a regular fixture in the playoffs of every league he has played.

And the top overall pick in the PBA Rookie Draft is hell-bent on making sure he keeps it that way as the player tasked to turn the fortunes of the struggling Terrafirma Dyip.


“I know this team has struggled, and obviously, I’d love to make the playoffs every year in my career so I don’t want to end that streak with Terrafirma,” Holt said during the Dyip’s appearance in the PBA Media Day on Tuesday at 1Esplanade in Pasay City.


Holt is expected to provide Terrafirma a lift in the coming PBA season after the franchise struggled to secure wins during the previous campaign.

The 31-year-old will come in hoping to satisfy the curiosity of fans and the hope that the Dyip can have games beyond the elimination round of the season-opening Commissioner’s Cup.

“That’s just my responsibility coming in with the first pick,” said Holt. “Obviously, I’m not a rookie, technically, with all the experiences I’ve had overseas. And the coaches know that I’m a good dude on and off the court and I care about the right things.

“It’s about working hard and just helping the guys in a positive way, and hopefully we have a successful season,” he added.

Holt will be playing alongside Juami Tiongson, the long-time Dyip mainstay who is eager to have some help of such caliber at the backcourt position.
