MANILA, Philippines—University of Santo Tomas continued its busy offseason by locking up two more talents for the following seasons of the UAAP.

The Growling Tigers officially secured the commitments of Andrei Honrada and Lorenzo Competnte.

Honrada, who’s currently competing for Homegrown Australia in the 2024 NBTC National Finals, is a sweet shooting guard coming out of high school.

Meanwhile, Competente will have to serve a residency year after spending a season with Far Eastern University, which has a new coach in Sean Chambers.

Competente barely played for the Tamaraws, competing for only seven minutes per game under then-coach Denok Miranda and logging 1.5 points and only close to a rebound per game.

Jarencio said the acquisition of both players is good for the UST program as the competition will increase with a plethora of young players in tow, including star guards Forthsky Padrigao and Kyle Paranda.

“The good thing here is, the competition among the kids will increase. It really starts as early as practice when they need to show up,” said Jarencio in Filipino.

UST was a cellar dweller in Season 86 as it held an abysmal 2-12 record.
