Mapua's Orquina fights through flu all the way to 3-Point crown

Almel Orquina was out of action in Mapua University’s last assignment in the first round of the NCAA 93 Men’s Basketball Tournament.

He wasn’t going to miss out on his first-ever All-Star event, however.

Orquina did more than participate, winning the entire Three-Point Shootout by a wide margin on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

“Medyo nanlalambot pa nga ako, pero buti naka-recover naman,” the second-year swingman told reporters right after he scored 15 in the final round to top runner-up Jack Hao of University of Perpetual Help who had 10 points.

Orquina sat out the Cardinals’ matchup against Jose Rizal University last Tuesday due to the flu. “Nagkasakit po ako kaya ‘di nakapaglaro ng last game. Kakabalik ko nga lang po kanina,” he shared.
