    Who are the new recruits for the falcons?

    Tomorrow is the last day of try-outs. There are 30 candidates and who will be picked? Any updates from the denizens?

    There are 2 newly recruited players from Iloilo Central Commercial High School, same school of Ken Bono, Leo Canuday and Ruel Hugnatan, that joined the falcons 2 weeks ago. They're Jason Salvado and Kirby Sellado.

    got to see those two in the Nike Elite Basketball camp all-star game that was shown this morning over B-TV. Mukhang may future nga ang dalawang yan sa UAAP.

    btw, didnt Leo Canuday come from the Adamson Baby Falcons? Or was he with Iloilo Commercial before transferring to AdU HS?

    Hi BigBlue

    Canuday studied and played for Iloilo Commercial (also known as Hwasiong) before transferring to AdU high school. He left right before Bono transferred to Hwasiong from the University of Iloilo. Interestingly these two kababayans were never able to play together in one team until they moved up to the college ranks.

    There is scarecity in the frontline candidates for AdU. The tallest guy is a reed thin 6'3" guy from the juniors team. The brother of rico maierhoffer is a 6'2" version only. The batch is thin that is why the try outs were extended. Sayang and laki pa naman ng bakante sa falcons with the departure of Bono, et al. The team B guys are heavy and not that athletic. Anyway, lets see how the summer ends for coach Bogs.

    Cabahug is practicing with the team but Agustin, Basilio and so is Pacheco (in another thread) are not. Hugnatan and Yong are questionable due to the 24-year age limit by the start of the season. Both are turning 25 this year. Am not sure about the others but will try to get more details during the summer training program. All recruits are lumped up together as coach Bogs is still figuring out the composition of the team as against the rest of the UAAP. Coach Bogs is doing his chess work in order to come up with the best team given the projected line ups of the other schools.

    With a weakness in the frontline, Bogs would have to figure on how to cast a supporting team for Cabahug. This means a garbage collector frontline that moves a lot for the picks and rebounds. The other wingman would have to complement Patrick and the shooting guard should take off part of the heat. There is a new point guard in the team that can score and has good floor leadership skills. He would be a good back up for Polayapoy. How he handles the DLSU press will be the test. The 6'3" juniors center has baseline jumpshot skills but average low post skills. He would be a 4 at most but a good candidate for replacing Agustin as he has a soft touch with some hops to boot. He is also aggressive in defense. There are shooters in the mold of Cabahug but do not have his slashing skill level.

    Let us see as time goes by.

    On the women's team, they have been aggressively recruiting this summer. There are a lot of new players. They got a 1,3,5 players from Davao and their frontline is heavy literally. Expect their frontline to bruise the frontline of DLSU, ADMU and UST. They still have their running game but the star player is not there anymore.

    My two cents worth.

    i think poliyapoy and yong is done with the team and hugnatan is still qualified coz the tournament. hindi hagit ng uaap season ung pag turn na ng 25 y/o. bono, yong, poliyapoy pacheco, yambot are the spots vacated. colina and the 2 new recruits are sure-in in the lineup. consider nuyles and canada

    Agustin is back and so is Basilio. The Gorospe player got bigger and maybe the main center instead of Basilio. However, Cabahug played but said good bye. I don't know if he will be back. The team is in a rebuilding mode and will be developing their chemistry as well as their play in the coming weeks for season 70.

    My two cents worth.
