NCAA Season 93 Preview: JRU Heavy Bombers

MANILA, Philippines – After missing out on the Final 4 in Season 92, the Jose Rizal University (JRU) Heavy Bombers are determined to get back on track, with Tey-Tey Teodoro leading the way.

Season 92 summary: JRU was expected to contend for a Final 4 spot in Season 92, as they featured a high-scoring backcourt in Teodoro and the veteran Paolo Pontejos.

However, the Heavy Bombers got off to a poor start, winning only two of their first five games. A four-game winning streak to open the second round bolstered their Final 4 campaign, but the Bombers ended the elimination round with three straight losses that doomed their chances.

Key loss: Paolo Pontejos, Darius Estrella (injury)

Key returnees: Teytey Teodoro, Abdel Poutuouchi, Gio Lasquety

Projection: The Heavy Bombers are a confident bunch heading into the NCAA Season 93 men's basketball tournament. They were impressive in the FilOil Flying V Preseason Tournament, making it to the semifinals for the first time before losing to eventual champions San Beda College.
