    And as he comes back to the Tamaraws' lair, coach Olsen Racela and the rest of the team is welcoming him with open arms.

    It also helps that Anonuevo's maturity was tested in the US, a key plus for a Tamaraws team which lost veteran wingers like Ken Tuffin, Alec Stockton, and Joseph Nunag.

    "From what I know, he has worked on his guard skills while he was in the US. This will definitely add to his versatility and will help us greatly especially after losing our veteran wings in KT, Joseph, and Alec," said Racela.
