FEU main man Terrence Romeo says finding ways to improve does not end by winning the UAAP Most Valuable Player trophy, admitting that he has a lot to learn about being a player and a leader.
“Tingin ko, kailangan ko pa mag-mature ng konti kasi may times na kulang ako sa pagiging vocal at leader sa court,” Romeo said.
The fourth-year guard recently won the league's most coveted individual award after the regular season that saw him average 22.2 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.9 assists, and 1.6 steals per contest.
Romeo logged 75.2857 statistical points (SPs) in beating out two-time UAAP MVP Bobby Ray Parks of National University in the race for the honor.
He had won an MVP in the juniors division, but Romeo said that it has been his dream to win the award in the college ranks.
“Matagal ko na rin dream maging MVP. Sobrang thankful ako sa Lord at sa teammates ko at saka sa coaching staff,” said Romeo.
“Hindi ko mapaliwanag. Siguro hindi lahat nabibigyan ng ganitong chance,” he added.
The MVP trophy was a huge addition to Romeo’s collection including a Rookie of the Year in 2010 and a Mythical Five award in 2012. This season, Romeo helped the Tamaraws return to the Final Four after a 10-4 win-loss card.
