He’s one of the best in the amateur leagues right now,” he said. “He’s hardworking and he always makes it a point that he knows the system.

This is my last conference in the D-League going to the draft, so I have to step up for me to make it to the goal that I want to achieve,” he said.Before he could get too ahead of himself, Jose still maintained that his focus is on Cignal as the team seeks to complete a season sweep this year.“Cignal is known as a top team, so we have to be up there. Our goal is to win a championship, so we can’t relax and we have to sustain the way we are playing,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT BREAKING: Cop killed, 11 hurt in Misamis Oriental grenade blastcenter_img Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
