    what? how could san beda accomodate all those recruits when in fact only one foreign breed player could play at a time? they should share some of them to other schools to make the competition balance.

    i'll believe it when i see it...
    -The way RP basketball can get back to the Olympic and FIBA world stage... correct positions and small ball!
    -teach all the youth that are 6'8 and shorter the ability to dribble, pass, and shoot 3's

    Default mad about seven footers

    about the rumored 7 foot Fil-Italian guy.These are the things I want to confirm:

    - Is he a legit Pinoy?
    - Is he a legit 7 footer?how does he weigh?
    - how old is he?
    - does he play as good expected?
    - when will we get to see him play?

    I hope there would be more of them to come and play for the Phils.I hope this is not a late april fool's joke.

    If NCAA impose a one foriegner at a time rule just like UAAP(I just don't know if they do have the same rule already),they would have problems with all this players and with Super Dan likely to replace Ekwe.

    PEx is not really a good source for college basketball information. A lot of blowhards, or attention-hungry trolls out there. If you want reliable information on college basketball, then simply to go Gameface.

But one thing for sure, he is tall, and can really sky. He looks raw though.
    (Chuckle) When a player starts talking about things like how high he can leap, etc., instead of his stats, or which college he played for, you start to doubt how good a player he really is.

    hehehehe looks like chismis stirred most of posters here again like the ronnie aguilar issue. Again like what is said about PCU joining the UAAP lets wait for a proper announcement or press release from the said institution.
    you know why I am happy

    PEx is really a poor source of information. They may get one or two things right, but I'm willing to bet that nine or eight of the other things are wrong.

    What the SBC boosters have been dropping hints about, are a possible seven-foot recruit out of South America. Hints of this recruit has been going around the last two seasons, but up to now nothing has come out of it.

    The fact that there has been no solid proof or news up to now prompts me to think that there may have been efforts to get that player before, but it has not materialized for one reason or another.

    I'm a Bedan and still, I haven't heard anything about this until now. and whenever it's true, it should've appeared in the papers long time ago..

    The first one was a nice alley-oop. Jason Ballesteros is the Marcus Camby of the NCAA... hehe...

    Though regarded as generally just a defensive player, he should develop a decent midrange jumpshot as well just like..... Marcus Camby!
