BONG Quinto will not be suiting up for Letran in Season 93 of the NCAA basketball tournament, sources told SPIN.ph on Wednesday.
Quinto, one of the key pieces in the Knights side the past few seasons, has already informed school officials and team management of his decision to sit out, the sources added.
The 6-2 forward, a remnant of the 2015 Letran championship team, is, in fact, already searching for a team to play for in the PBA D-League this conference instead of playing out his final season with the Knights.
One source said 'differences' with the coaching staff prompted the decision.
The big man, one source added, may not be the only player missing from the Knights' lineup this season as JP Calvo is also contemplating on sitting out this season.
However, Calvo's decision is still not final and Letran is still hoping for a change of heart, sources added.
The absence of Quinto and, potentially, Calvo could be a big blow to the Knights campaign in the NCAA Season 93 with only days left before the start of the campaign on Saturday.
