NATIONAL University coach Jamike Jarin shut down reports claiming that Allwell Oraeme is heading to the Bulldogs.
"May mga lumalabas na news na nasa amin si Oraeme. Hindi totoo ito," said Jarin in an SMS message.
Reports of Oraeme's move came after the two-time NCAA MVP left Mapua during the offseason, leaving the Cardinals without their resident star.
Incidentally, Oraeme's former teammate at Mapua, Darrell Menina, has transferred to NU.
Despite the absence of Oraeme, the Cardinals are performing well as they own a 1-1 win-loss record early in NCAA Season 93.
