RENZO Subido is keeping the door open for a return to University of Santo Tomas after skipping the coming Season 80 of the UAAP to play in the PBA D-League.
“Definitely, I want to come back. I just have to find my way, just to get back my own footing,” the 5-foot-9 Subido after scoring 11 points in his debut for AMA in a 100-118 defeat to Alibaba.
After three seasons with the Tigers, Subido decided to skip the coming season because he felt he was not growing as a player amid the rigodon of coaches at UST.
“My three years in UST, I wasn’t growing as a player,” said Subido. “In my years with UST, I was handled by three coaches starting from coach Pido (Jarencio). It’s really hard to adjust if there is a sudden change of management.”
Subido said playing in the D-League will give him the much-needed experience once he returns to the UAAP.
“Right now, I still have two more years in the UAAP. I want to maximize it. For now, I just want to get my confidence back, become a better player, a cerebral player, through the D-League,” said Subido.
As for his first game in the D-League, Subido feels he still needs improvement.
“I know I have a lot of things to work on. This is my first game in the D-League, and hopefully, I can play better in the next games," said the heady guard.
“I think the skills are there but I just have to get my presence of mind and my confidence back. I think here in the D-League, it’s going to be a good tournament to get my confidence back,” said Subido.
