    Jollo Go reunites with coach Jamike after signing Phoenix free-agent deal

    Jollo Go

    JOLLO Go found another home at Phoenix where he gets to be reunited with a person so familiar to him.

    After parting ways with Blackwater, Go signed up with the Fuel Masters for the PBA Governors Cup where he plays under former Batang Gilas mentor Jamike Jarin.

    "Pinag-try out ako sa Phoenix and suwerte naman na-sign," he said on Tuesday.

    Go previously played for Jarin with the Under-16, Under-17 and Under-18 Gilas team.

    "So kahit paano, pamilyar na ako sa sistema niya," he said.

    Jarin was named interim coach of Phoenix in place of Topex Robinson.

    Go's contract with Blackwater expired last December, and since he was busy preparing for his wedding, he didn't get to attend the Bossing's practices anymore.


      The La Salle alumnus said he had no idea at that time on whether the Bossing still had plans of renewing his contract or not.

      "Hindi na ako nakabalik sa kanila kasi nga kinasal ako. E ang dami na rin nilang players kaya hindi na rin ako nag-attempt," he said.

      Nonetheless, he was grateful to Blackwater for giving him a chance to live his dream to play in the PBA.

      He was called up by the Bossing while playing for Marinerong Pilipino in the D-League during the Philippine Cup and played for two conferences with the franchise.

      Now it's a new environment and a new start for him.

      "Fortunately, nabigyan ako ng chance dito sa Phoenix," said Go.
