TY Tang looks to attract blue-chip recruits, build winning tradition at Benilde
New coach TY Tang looks to build a winning tradition and attract blue chip recruits to Benilde. 

COLLEGE of Saint Benilde seeks to beef up its recruitment efforts in the coming NCAA season with the ample support now coming in to the team.

New CSB coach TY Tang said the Blazers are looking to tab blue chip recruits especially now with the entry of Mighty Sports as one of the team’s backers.

“We are trying to look for our own recruits now that Mighty Sports is helping us through with the program. Expect a lot of changes in the kind of program that we have with CSB,” said Tang.

Tang said Mighty Sports isn’t the only one that is backing up the team even as CSB’s sister schools are also keen on helping out the Blazers, who last won an NCAA crown in 2000.

“There’s a few more who pledged their support. Maybe now that we are in line with the sister school, baka makakuha kami ng recruits from them,” said Tang.

Being active in the recruitment game is just one of the things that Tang is set to inject in the Blazers program that is looking to end a 16-year title drought.

Tang has already begun holding formal practices with the team since his hiring this month as the Blazers begin their build-up for NCAA Season 93 next year.

Tang, no stranger to winning having part of championship teams with La Salle in the UAAP and Rain or Shine in the PBA, said he has high expectations for the team as he looks to build a winning tradition in CSB.

“I don’t want to speak too soon but I have high hopes for the team. We want to be a contender right way. I know it’s a work of progress but we want to reach high. At least, if we fell short, at least it is close to what are goals are,” said Tang.
