Subido looks forward to UST renaissance under Ayo

MANILA, Philippines – There’s excitement brewing inside the España campus of the University of Santo Tomas as Aldin Ayo, one of the highest profile and successful college basketball coaches in recent memory, has changed zip codes.

The prevailing hope is that the days of ignominy and dwelling in the cellar are over. And one Growling Tiger simply cannot wait to get started. Or to be more precise, get his college career back on track.

It wasn’t too long ago that Renzo Subido was one of those highly touted high school players to move up the senior ranks. Before Aljun Melecio was a hot-shooting star for the De La Salle Zobel Junior Archers, that tag belonged to Subido (who was recruited out of Lourdes School in Mandaluyong).

The point guard suited up for the De La Salle Green Archers for a few matches in the Filoil Flying V Premier Cup during six years ago but he soon decamped for the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers, where he played alongside another former Junior Archer in Jeric Fortuna and Jon Sheriff.

Unfortunately the following season, Subido was sidelined by a knee injury. When he returned the next year, a severe ankle sprain prevented him from finishing out the campaign.

“I know I could have done more during my rookie season which is why I was looking forward to my sophomore year,” related Subido. “Kaso I tore my ACL. I was able to go back in five months but in that span, it was not enough to recover. Plus, legs, quads, and hamstring were still weak. When I finally returned, hindi ko makuha rhythm ko then I sprained my ankle and sat out the rest of the season.”
