Alejandro cherishes time with Jarin: ‘He’s like a father figure to us’

J-Jay Alejandro played just one year for National University head coach Jamike Jarin, but the graduating Bulldog said that lone year has been the most special in his UAAP tenure.

And all that was thanks to Jarin.

“My UAAP career has been fun especially my last year with coach Jamike, that’s really been my best memory,” said Alejandro, who played in his final UAAP game after NU lost to University of the Philippines, 106-81, Saturday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

“What made it special was I had the chance to play under coach Jamike who we all know is a multi-titled coach in the UAAP and the NCAA.”

Jarin was an eight-time UAAP juniors champion with Ateneo and a one-time NCAA seniors champion with San Beda and that was the kind of pedigree that Alejandro admired.
