NCAA Season 93 Preview: Mapua Cardinals

MANILA, Philippines – The Mapua University Cardinals will look very different when they open their campaign in the NCAA Season 93 men's basketball tournament.

Season 92 record: 12-6

Season 92 summary: Thanks to another MVP campaign from Allwell Oraeme, the Cardinals marched to the Final 4 for the second straight season last year.

However, they were not able to make much of an impact there, as they were routed by Arellano University, 92-80, despite a 20-point, 24-rebound effort from Oraeme.

Of some consolation to Mapua is that Oraeme again earned MVP honors, while Joseph Eriobu played well enough to be a second round pick in the 2016 PBA Rookie Draft.

Key losses: Allwell Oraeme, Joseph Eriobu, Shane Menina, CJ Isit

Key returnees: Andoy Estrella

Projection: There is little doubt that the Cardinals will struggle in Season 93, having lost not only last season's captain in CJ Isit, but their pillar of strength in two-time MVP Allwell Oraeme.
