The son of the late PBA cager Gido Babilonia only played one game in his rookie year with Ateneo in Season 75. A two-time NCAA champion in the juniors division with San Beda, his playing time is expected to increase with Greg Slaughter ending his UAAP career last year.
Giboy Babilonia is the Eagles' third-string center this season. Son of former pro Gido, Babilonia was a two-time NCAA champion in high school with San Beda. The 6-foot-5 slotman averaged 2.3 points, 4.8 boards, and 1.2 blocks in 14.6 minutes last year for the Red Cubs.
