Pasaol reminds Pumaren of ‘joyous’ PBA great Meneses

High-scoring and fun-loving.

Those were some of words University of the East coach Derrick Pumaren used to describe his star scorer Alvin Pasaol.

And on the heels of his 49-point game and 81-point week, the veteran mentor couldn’t help but compare his 6-foot-3 swingman to a star he handled many moons ago.

“He is like Vergel,” said Pumaren, referring to Jose Rizal University coach Vergel Meneses. “Vergel he loves to have fun, but when it’s time to play, when it’s business, then he goes down to work. That’s his attitude, and that’s the same with Alvin.”

Pumaren  had the privilege to coach Meneses in the pro league with the now-defunct Sunkist. They won two PBA championships and nearly a Grand Slam as the man they called “The Aerial Voyager” became the 1995 PBA Most Valuable Player.
