    JEO Ambohot deflected the credit even as he led the way for Petron-Letran in the big win over McDavid on Monday in the PBA D-League at Paco Arena.

    The 6-foot-6 Ambohot said that the Knights, who have won back-to-back games for a 2-1 win-loss record and a share of fourth spot, are adjusting well to coach Bonnie Tan’s system after Jeff Napa’s departure.

    “Hindi naman masyadong adjustment namin kasi parehas lang yung mga pinatatakbo ni coach Bonnie sa mga plays din dati ni coach Jeff kaya hindi naman masyado nahirapan,” he said.

    Ambohot led the way with 17 points, while Jerrick Balanza and Larry Muyang both scored 12. All 13 Petron players fielded scored.

    “Yung mga pasahan namin ang naging susi sa mga panalo. Hindi kami selfish sa bola kasi yun yung isa na nagpapapanalo sa basketball yung hindi ka selfish,” he said.

    Ambohot also paid tribute to Napa for giving him a chance to shine in Letran after languishing in Arellano’s Team B.

    Napa had developed a system with a formidable frontcourt featuring Ambohot, and the senior big man remains a key for the Knights offense under Tan.

    “Kay coach Jeff sobrang laki ng naitulong niya sa akin, siya yung nagbigay ng kumpiyansa sa akin,” Ambohot said.

    “Siya yung dahilan kung nasaan ako ngayon, sa anong narating ko tsaka naka-NCAA ako dahil sa kanya. Sobrang nagpapasalamat ako kay coach Jeff kasi binibigyan niya ako ng kumpiyansa.”

    The Letran big man is confident the D-League stint will be a big boost for the Knights ahead of the NCAA.

    “Sobrang laki ng makukuha mong experience dito kasi PBA D-League ‘to, iba na yan, kaya sobrang laking tulong pagdating sa NCAA namin,” Ambohot said. “Gusto ko magpakita rito, gusto ko rin kasi makarating sa PBA. Yun yung pinakagoal ko ngayon.”
