JOSEPH Nalos couldn't help but get emotional as his final UAAP game for Adamson ended on a losing note.
The Cebuano cager finished with eight points and eight assists in a 63-78 loss to University of Santo Tomas on Wednesday then shed tears inside the dugout after the game.
“Nasa isip ko na ibuhos lahat kasi last game ko na. Akala ko madali pero mahirap pala maglaro sa last game,” said Nalos.
“Naiyak lang ako sa dugout. Nagpapasalamat ako sa management, sa mga pari, kay coach Mike (Fermin), grabe ‘yung binigay niya sa aking kumpiyansa,” said Nalos.
Now that his collegiate career has come to an end, Nalos hopes he could land a spot in the PBA D-League, having made plans to apply for the draft in the next few days.
“Sana makuha sa D-League. First step (ang) D-League,” said Nalos.
This early, Adamson coach Mike Fermin believed that Nalos will land a spot in the D-League.
“Sabi niya sa akin, ilakad ko daw siya. Sabi ko, hindi ka na namin kailangang ilakad. Magkakaroon ka ng team definitely,” said Fermin.
