    JOEL Cagulangan showed right on opening week he is one of the players to watch in the NCAA Season 94 Juniors Basketball Tournament, leading La Salle Green Hills in a rout of San Sebastian.

    With 20 points, nine assists and four steals, Cagulangan was named as the top NCAA prospect in Week 1 of the Chooks-to-Go/NBTC NCAA 24.

    San Sebastian's Milo Janao turned heads on opening week, averaging 19 points in two games, draining the game-winning buzzer-beater on opening day to stun the Lyceum Junior Pirates.

    Completing the top five are Perpetual Help's Ezdel Galoy, La Salle's Inand Fornilos and Perpetual Help's Joshua Gallano.

    Marwin Dionisio of JRU, Jacob Cortez of LSGH, Zach Estacio of San Beda, Kean Bacalaan of San Sebastian, and John Barba of Lyceum round out the top 10.

    Notable names that were not able to crack the top 10 are La Salle's RC Calimag (13), Mapua's Clint Escamis (16), and Lyceum's Maclaude Guadana (22).
