At 6 feet 2 inches, Justine Alano is the smallest starting center in the NCAA but he uses quickness to make up for it. The 20-year-old undersized big man from Paranaque emerged as Perpetual’s second-leading scorer and rebounder last season with 8.4 points and 5.6 boards per game.
Jeorge Allen, 24, is the Altas’ No. 2 small forward after Harold Arboleda. Even as a sub, the 6-foot-2 swingman from Angeles City finished third in the team in scoring last season with eight points on top of 4.5 boards in 19.8 minutes per outing.
The Altas’ starting small forward, just 6 feet 2 inches, Harold Arboleda emerged as the team’s top rebounder last season. The 21-year-old swingman averaged 5.9 boards, along with 6.2 points and 2.1 assists in 21.8 minutes per game.
Jaycee Asuncion, 21, is one of Perpetual’s reserve shooting guards. A former Philippine Christian University Dolphin, the 5-foot-11 off guard averaged 5.2 points and 1.6 rebounds in 11.6 minutes in Season 87.
Recruited two years ago, Nigeria’s Femi Babayemi is finally playing in the NCAA. The 22-year-old center has yet to earn starter status, but is an able finisher who boosts the team with rebounding and shot-blocking.
