    Marcelino twins weigh between applying for PBA Draft and making Lyceum return

    4 days ago

    TWINS Jaycee and Jayvee Marcelino are torn if they will come back to Lyceum for one last run next season or make the jump to the pros.

    Pirates coach Topex Robinson admitted that he's still unsure if he'll have the feisty brothers on his camp once the buildup for next year begins.

    "We don't know what their plans are," he said.

    The Marcelinos themselves acknowledge the decision that they have on their hands as the Nov. 29 deadline for local applicants in the 2019 PBA Rookie Draft approaches.

    "Pinagiisipan pa namin. Kakausapin pa namin yung LPU community kung babalik pa kami. Pero ngayon, pahinga muna namin ang utak namin," said Jaycee, a former Rookie of the Year awardee.

    Jayvee added: "Naglalaban talaga eh. Ngayon, nasa isip namin na gusto naming bumawi next year, pero yung draft naman kasi kailangan na namin mairaos ang pamilya namin."

    The brothers have been key cogs for Lyceum over the past three years.

      Whatever the Marcelinos' decision may be, they expressed no regrets for pouring their hearts out for the Intramuros-based campus, giving it their all after Lyceum fell to Letran, 92-88, in their stepladder semifinals clash on Friday.

      "Lahat naman, binigay namin sa laro eh," said Jaycee, who led the team with his 26 points, three rebounds, and three assists. "Masakit talaga eh. Kinapos lang talaga at sinuwerte sila."

      Jayvee, who had five points, three boards, three assists, and two steals in the exit, chimed in, saying: "Wala kaming regret sa ginawa namin dahil lumaban kami. Hindi kami bumigay kahit malaki na lamang nila. Kinapos lang talaga."
