    NOT even his absence among the end-of-season awardees of the NCAA Season 95 juniors basketball tournament could stop Rhayyan Amsali from ascending to the top of the list of the country's best high school players.

    And when the lights were at their brightest, Amsali proved his worth as he steered the Red Cubs to the championship - their first since 2015 - and was deservingly hailed as Finals MVP.

    With that, it's just right that Amsali also took pole position in the final edition of the NCAA NBTC 24.

    He spearheaded a strong San Beda contingent, with three Red Cubs making it to the top five and four in the top 10.

    Season MVP John Barba, who steered Lyceum to a breakthrough Finals appearance, finished second followed by San Beda's Justine Sanchez at three and Yukien Andrada at five.

    The Jr. Pirates' do-it-all star Mac Guadana completed the top five as he placed fourth.

    Rounding out the top 10 are Mapua's Jonnel Policarpio, San Beda's Tony Ynot, LSGH's RC Calimag, and the Letran pair of Joshua Ramirez and Shawn Umali.
