Cebu Daily News - - SPORTS - by Jonas Pane­rio

Mon­bert Arong - picked 10th in sec­ond round by TNT “I just want to play de­fense be­cause since col­lege, that’s what coach Nash (Racela) had al­ways wanted me to do. I just want to ab­sorb as much as I can from the coaches”

Jo­mari Sol­lano - picked 7th in sec­ond round by Rain or Shine

“Rain or Shine is a con­tend­ing team and their big men are even larger than I am. So I just re­ally need to tough this out and work as hard as I can” Joseph Na­los - picked in fourth round by San Miguel “All of us who were se­lected past the first round, we aren’t guar­an­teed of any­thing. But at least, we’re al­ready here and we have a team to prac­tice for. Right now, I just want to show what I can do. I’m grate­ful that coach Leo (Aus­tria) picked me. He was the one who re­cruited me from South­west­ern to Adam­son as well”
