Since Raphael Reyes will train in the USA, let’s hope we can see improvements with his shooting and dribbling skills. He’s got the speed and athleticism, he just needs to develop offensive skills. We can expect this back-up point guard to be trusted by Coach Luigi whenever Jazul and Casio plays bad.
Raphael Reyes served as a good back-up point guard for Casio and Jazul. When Casio got injured, the rookie proved himself as a steady point guard. We saw glimpses of his athleticism in defense and in hustle plays. This guy showed poise in running the triangle offense. Reyes is the enforcer in the point guard position. If Coach Luigi wants to press or stop a scoring point guard, this guy is in the ball game.
Raphael Reyes needs to develop his outside shot. For a small point guard, he needs to improve his range since it will be hard for him to drive inside the paint and score among the trees. He also has to improve his build. Many point guards right now are heavy-duty. The likes of Sol Mercado and Gabe Norwood keep posting up whenever they are guarded by this rookie.
During the elimination rounds, he needed to step up since JVee Casio was out for quite some time. Being a rookie point guard in the same team as JVee and RJ Jazul, he didn’t get much playing time. However, when he was on court, we got to see his ability to successfully orchestrate his teammates. He’s a young player, so he still has a lot of time to learn and improve. We’ll be looking forward to Raffy’s future performances.
