Flying below everyone’s radar while playing for Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu, 6’3″ Fil-Australian Joshua Sinclair turned heads in the three-day league as he copped the Most Outstanding Player and Best Defensive Player awards, besting all the big names and the highly touted recruits out of the high school level.
The scary thing about him? He still has two years to hone his skills further in the secondary level.
Sinclair was one of the major stars of the Magis Eagles as the team won their first NBTC championship with an 82-78 victory over powerhouse San Beda.
The lanky forward took everyone’s attention in the first day when he dropped 30 points with relative ease in their blowout win against Davao. Read More.

THE Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) didn’t find it hard this time to convince schools to release their players to the Gilas cadet national pool for the team bound for two Southeast Asian-level competitions this year.
SBP deputy executive director for international affairs Butch Antonio said school teams from where the 16-man pool were culled all responded to the call to release their players to the national squad.
The pool from which the final roster of Sinag Pilipinas will be formed, features a good mix of players representing different schools, including five from De La Salle, three of whom still have playing years left in the Taft-based school in Jeron Teng, Arnold Van Opstal, and Prince Rivero.
The other two LaSallians are Norbert Torres and Almond Vosotros, both of whom are now playing for Cebuana Lhuillier in the PBA D-League.
Other college players in the pool are Baser Amer (San Beda), Mac Belo (Far Eastern University), Kevin Ferrer (University of Santo Tomas), Jiovanni Jalalon (Arellano), Kiefer Ravena and Thirdy Ravena (Ateneo), and Scottie Thompson (University of Perpetual Help). Read More.

PBA rising star Terrence Romeo says he’s ready to embrace a new career challenge if given the chance to join the soon-to-be-formed Gilas Pilipinas 3.0.
The flamboyant GlobalPort sophomore confirmed he held meetings with Gilas coach Tab Baldwin, who, according to Romeo, encouraged him to open his mind to a different role as point guard of the national team.
“Kinausap nga niya ako at sinabi kung puwede raw ba ako mag-adjust sa point guard,” Romeo told Spin.ph. “Sabi ko pag-aaralan ko kung ano ang matutulong ko sa team.” Apparently, Baldwin feels Romeo needs to shift to point guard to find a place with the next Gilas side. “Nakapag-usap kami, kinausap niya (Baldwin) ako. Kwentuhan lang tungkol sa Gilas rin pero sinabi niya na kailangan ko nga raw mag-adjust ng role. Point guard ang gusto niya, kasi sobrang maliit daw ako sa (2 guard) eh. Sabi ko naman kaya ko namang mag-adjust kung andyan na,” Romeo said. Read More.
