FEU proud of its Gilas products

MANILA, Philippines — Far Eastern University Athletic Director Mark Molina brims with pride when he sees former Tamaraws excelling in both the national and international stage.

Following FEU's 2015 UAAP men’s basketball championship, the core of that title squad has gone on to the PBA and the Gilas Pilipinas national team, where they have proven to be vital cogs.

Suiting up for the Gilas squad seeing action in the ongoing FIBA Asia Cup are Roger Pogoy and Carl Bryan Cruz. And there of course, is Terrence Romeo, who although he wasn’t a part of that UAAP championship squad, played on two FEU teams that went to the UAAP finals.

For the other Gilas squad that will compete in the upcoming Southeast Asian Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, there’s Mac Belo and Mike Tolomia. Center Russel Escoto is part of the squad but isn’t fully recovered from a knee injury.

“We’re all very proud of them,” said Molina in an interview with ABS-CBN News. “We teach our players to ‘Be Brave’ and we constantly remind them to practice this in their lives. I am so glad this group of Tamaraws have shown this spirit on the international stage.”
