NU’s Alejandro is ‘proudest teammate’ despite another loss


MANILA, Philippines – When National University lost to University of the East last Saturday, team captain J-Jay Alejandro was at a loss for words, eventually saying that the Bulldogs failed to put up a fight against the Red Warriors in the huge 90-77 setback.

On Wednesday, Alejandro was in a completely different mood, even as the result of the Bulldogs' game was the same: they lost to the Ateneo Blue Eagles, 85-72, to drop to 3-6 in UAAP Season 80.

"OK pa ako," said Alejandro, who tried valiantly to keep NU afloat against Ateneo before the Bulldogs faded in the fourth quarter. "We fought earlier."

"I'm the proudest teammate ngayon, na nakita ko lumaban ang mga teammate ko," he expressed.

Alejandro could be forgiven if he is getting a bit frustrated with his team. The fifth-year guard has done most of the heavy lifting for the Bulldogs in Season 80, something that is clear from his averages. After originally being known as a scorer in his early years in NU, Alejandro has turned himself into an all-around force and is averaging 18.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 5.9 assists per game.
