June 29, 2015

MANILA, Philippines – National University coach Eric Altamirano is convinced that top rookie prospect Jeth Troy Rosario has all the attributes to become a dominant big man in the PBA someday.

But before looking far too ahead, the veteran mentor offered some words of advice to the former Bulldogs top slotman just before he makes the expected jump to the PBA – bulk up and be mentally tough.
