TWO of the best guards in the NCAA now look forward to going pro after their respective teams ended their campaigns in Season 95.
Arellano’s Kent Salado and Perpetual Help’s Edgar Charcos bared their intention to apply for the next PBA Draft.
Salado averaged 16.2 points, 5.7 assists, 5.1 rebounds and 1.6 steals in his comeback season for Arellano.
Unfortunately, the 5-foot-9 guard wasn't able to lead the Chiefs back to the Final Four as they finished the season at 4-14.
Still, the Cagayan de Oro-born Salado is keeping his fingers crossed that he will be lucky to get picked and follow the footsteps of his former backcourt partner Jio Jalalon.
"Magpapa-draft ako. Sana palarin," he said.
The 5-foot-8 Charcos, meanwhile, was the top guard for Perpetual with 12.5 points, 4.8 assists, 4.3 boards and 0.8 steals.
The Altas finished the season with a 5-13 card as they failed to return to the semis in this final year.
But that won't deter the La Carlota, Negros Occidental native from testing his luck.
"Mag-aapply ako sa draft," he said.
Charcos, however, is open to the possibility of also taking his talent to the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL) if no PBA team takes a chance on him.
"Kung hindi ako makuha, sa MPBL ako," he said.
