Teng leads Flying V despite playing with flu

Jeron Teng wasn’t supposed to play, yet on Monday, it was still him who had to carry the biggest weight of the game for Flying V.

The La Salle standout took it upon himself to play through his sickness and showed his fortitude as he kept the thunder unbeaten in the 2017 PBA D-League Foundation Cup with a huge 83-78 victory over Marinerong Pilipino.

And for coach Eric Altamirano, he can’t say anything less on the fighting spirit of his star.

“I’m just really proud of Jeron on how he took it upon himself that even though he wasn’t feeling well, he forced himself to play because he knew how important this game is,” the soft-spoken Altamirano said.

Teng arrived on Saturday after his stint with Chooks-Pilipinas 3×3 in the 2017 Fiba 3×3 World Cup in Nantes, France and immediately joined the team’s practices for the next two days. He then, fulfilled other obligations through the course of the weekend before joining the Thunder anew for the game.

Battling flu on Monday, Teng was already ruled out by Altamirano for the game against the Skippers.
