Just like the Korean Kong of Perpetual, Long is a foreigner. The proper venue on questions regarding UAAP players is the UAAP section. They are more knowledgeable about their own league.

As for NCAA foreign players from the past and present, this is the proper thread. Who are these players? Let's discuss.

Thanks.

Sablay pa rin. ;) Hayes plays for JRU and he's not considered a foreign player. He's hometown is listed as Quezon City.

Lee (Korean) and Frebyan (Indonesian) are the foreign players in the Altas' roster.

I do remember that Lim Eng Beng was considered as a Chinese citizen when he was still playing for De La Salle College in the 70s even though he was born in the Philippines, as both his parents were Chinese citizens, IIRC. He said in an interview then that he was even asked by Atoy Co if he would play for China, but said he'd rather be a Filipino citizen and play for the Philippines.

He later got naturalized, an event he says was one of his happiest moments, though national team duty was no longer possible as he was already playing for the Concepcion Carriers in the newly-formed PBA.

Can our Letranite brothers give some background on Ted McKinney who played for the Knights in the late 70s and was part of their championship squad in 1979? Was he an full-blooded American or a Fil-For like Willie Miller, LaSalle's Wille Pearson or San Sebastian's Pep Moore?

How do we define being foreign? Is it based on citizenship or ethnicity? Because if we base it on citizenship, I'm pretty sure there have been many players who suited up for NCAA teams. We can start with the fil-ams who flocked to these shores in the 1990s. If we're talking about mixed heritage, we have Miller of Letran, Topex Robinson of San Sebastian and Gabby Espinas of PCU.

I had the privilege of sharing classroom and seats in hs and college with TED Mckinney. On graduation from hs, he brought along his parents and siiblings and i can tell first hand that he is of pure breed. Tatay niya kamukha ni NatKing Cole at nany niya parang si OPRAH.

Pero teka, pag-kinausap mo naman, pinoy-na pinoy ang dating at malutong pang mag-mura. Siguro dito na pinaganak.

So what does that make of him?...parang Alex Compton ang situation...born in the Philippines with American parents..

Last time i heard of him, he is now based in the US. Malaki pa rin siguro ang ilong ;D

Para sa lahat naman ang usaping ito, eh.... :D

Detouring a bit to answer the question, the foreign player who played for FEU was 6'5"Anthony Williams, an ex-US Marine who went to Med School at FEU.

As to pre-war players, si Charlie Borck siyempre ang unang mababanggit, but I really do not have that much info on the "Blonde Bombshell" except what we generally know, i.e. 6'1" center who played on the Philippine Olympic Team that placed 5th in the 1936 Berlin Olympics, and not much else. But that is a puzzlement to me, given that Alex Compton was born here and is still an American citizen. I wonder how was citizenship determined then during the Commonwealth Period (tamad lang akong mag-research sa jus soli at jus sanguinis ;D)?

Escalera, thanks for the trivia. As for profanity, yun naman talaga ang unang nalalaman ng banyaga.*Just ask former Toyota, U/Tex and Crispa import Byron "Snake" Jones.* Yung malutong na mura, siyempre makukuha mo lang yun kapag dito ka namuhay. ;D

Bedan greats Borck, Brill and Brodett certainly have foreign-sounding names. Been trying to find out if they were born and raised in the P.I.. Si Brill naabutan ko pa sa San Beda, height palang Pinoy na Pinoy na (he-he-he).

A lot of those "banyagang Bedista" were probably Filipino mestizos. Like the Cabarruses na mukhang mga Kastila talaga. Mr. Cuna/Cuņa could be related to my grade school classmate who not only looked like a Spaniard but spoke Spanish as well.

Emeka Oudo of San Beda will join Sam Ekwe as the Nigerian Skyline combo for the Red Lions, whereupon the rest of the NCAA will dispute the Season 84 Runner-up trophy.

Charles Borck, 1999 National Basketball Hall of Fame Awardee by the National Basketball Hall of Fame Foundation,Inc. and Bedan of the Century Awardee of San Beda College in 2001. Borck represented the country in many international basketball competitions, namely: Japan Memorial Game (1940) and Berlin Basketball Olympics Competition (1936). He was also member of the Philippine Soccer Team to Java, Indonesia in 1938. A stellar Bedan basketball player during the NCAA games, Borck was dubbed "the blonde bombshell" by Manila Sports Writers in the mid '30s.

Tama. Names could be tricky.


Just like the Korean Kong of Perpetual..

..But Kong, is not Korean. He is but a Filipino-Chinese born and raised in the country to Chinese(could be both, or could also be native-born) parents. The Korean in Perp's line-up is actually Lee.

Trivia: Did you know that top character actor Paquito Diaz was once a popular basketball star before he entered the movies? Yes, Paquito also made a name for himself in local hoopdom when he skippered the FEU High basketball team to three (1951-54) consecutive championships in the UAAP basketball tournament and also when he played for the Ateneo Blue Eagles (senior team) in 1955-56.

both paquito and romy diaz are around 5'10. paquito was quite a high school sensation when playing for FEU in the early '50s, but didn't do much in ateneo and AFAIK never played collegiate ball for FEU, though he was listed in their 1957 lineup. he played well enough in the commercial leagues...though didn't perform like you'd expect a former high school phenom to play.

romy diaz was less-recruited, so to say, while playing for san sebastian high in the late '50s. unlike FEU HS, which was a UAAP power in those early days, SSC HS (di pa ata sila SSC-R nun) wasn't in the NCAA yet and wasn't a force to be reckoned with. but he did put up big numbers for FEU in college, and had a very productive MICAA career with crispa and ysmael steel.

of course, the rest is history, as the diaz brothers became two of philippine cinema's most recognizable action film kontrabidas, starting in the mid-'60s...
