Vic Manuel is looking to bounce back from a tough conference.
VIC Manuel is eager to deliver for Northport coach Pido Jarencio, disappointed that he was unable to perform well with Phoenix under Topex Robinson.

“Alam mo naman si coach Pido, yung style niya Pinoy na Pinoy. Kaya excited akong maglaro diyan (NorthPort),” said the 34-year-old Manuel.
“Gusto ko yung ganun. Laban lang.”
