“We are extremely proud of our players in the PBA,” said FEU’s Athletic Director Mark Molina. “They are the faces of our program. Player development has always been the strength and the focus of basketball program. We seldom end up with highly recruited blue chips from high school but our coaches do a great job in identifying and then developing the talent into professional level players.”
