Former UST Growling Tigers Mark Nonoy and Deo Cuajao, have been welcomed officially to the green and white squad on Tuesday, September 15.

/ 15 September 2020

Nonoy, Cuajao, and Team Phenom Sports president Jackson Chua flew to Davao City on Monday to meet the new backer of De La Salle’s men basketball team, Atty. Mans Carpio. 

Carpio, a product of DLSU, played a huge part in recruiting Nonoy and Cuajao, as well as Kevin Quiambao to Archers’ lair.

“Through the years, La Salle has become one of the biggest and proudest collegiate basketball programs in the country,” Carpio said in a statement. 

“My goal is to open the doors of the school to more homegrown players who cannot afford to study there through sports. That is the true meaning of the Animo spirit,” he added. 

Nonoy and Cuajao left the UST men’s basketball team in the wake of the Sorsogon training bubble controversy. 

They are just the latest players to bolt from España, following the departure of former team captain CJ Cansino and rising star Rhenz Abando, among others. 

The two players will sit out one year before becoming eligible for the Green Archers in Season 84.
