Jeron Teng glad to see familiar face at sidelines in Altamirano

Jeron Teng wasn’t the lone Flying V Thunder who found his way in Alaska, as coach Eric Altamirano followed suit as an assistant coach for coach Alex Compton.

And the fifth overall pick in the 2017 PBA couldn’t be more thankful to have a familiar face by his side as he begins this new journey in the pro league.

“I’m so happy because coach Eric has been a mentor to me. I’ve learned a lot from him since high school and I’m glad that we could continue our partnership here in Alaska,” the 23-year-old said.

Teng has had a fruitful past with Altamirano dating back to their days in the Philippine under-18 national team.

It is also under the veteran mentor’s guidance that the former La Salle stalwart showcased his full potential, averaging 22.15 points, 6.85 rebounds, and 5.77 assists for Flying V in the 2017 Foundation Cup, while also setting the league record for most triple-doubles at three.
