    ^ Speaking of the above, what are they doing now apart from presumably getting back to their studies?

    Mark Juruena and Russel Dix are pretty solid prospects and both look legitimately 6'4" each. Juruena is a multi-position type who seems to be a designated forward. but he has the handles and the trigger to play some point forward. Dix is more of a prototype 4/5 but is more fluid and athletic than most guys his age at the same position.

    As for Jay Maderazo he still seems to be finding out what his limits are. He looks like a solid 6'1" swingman, very athletic and plays with some intelligence and good instinct. But he has not yet defined his game, and what he can hang his hat on as a player. Still, he is an intriguing prospect at the perimeter positions.

    If I were Adamson team management I would do everything I can to keep these Baby Falcons in the lair and make certain they go all the way up to the senior division. Juruena is especially vital since he already has MVP credentials and still seems to be growing physically, he could top off at 6'6" or 6'7".

    ^ Very impressed with Mark Juruena in the game today between the UAAP and NCAA juniors. He had some shifty offensive moves to the basket, and showed no fear in going up against the taller frontline of the NCAA for the crucial rebounds. Mark is from General Santos City, so pretty soon he would also be a well-known name in the sports world, similar to his kababayan Manny P.* :D

    Too bad Dix wasn't selected for the game, as I would have liked to see him go up against the forwards of the NCAA team. Is Dix also graduating this season like Juruena, or is he only a junior? From what I read somewhere, Russell is half-British, and hails from Pangasinan.

    I got to watch Juruena and Dix play the day before the Bantay Bata All-Star game when the BAby Falcons went up against PCCr in a MMBL Juniors game. I really came away impressed with Juruena. Agree with Joe, point-forward is his real game as he's directed the plays of the Baby Falcons in some instances. He was athletic but doesn't rely too much on this as shown in a fastbreak play where, instead of just rising above his defender, he made a stutter step to the right, forcing his defender to go to that direction. He then dribbled behind his back and ended the move with a simple finger roll with the left hand. He is always very much in control of his game and is hardly flustered. He's shown good basketball IQ and appears to be focused.

    Dix, I think doesn't have explosive foot speed, but covers ground quickly. In fact he looks lead footed but, as a PCCr player belatedly realized when Dix had his shot blocked after the former tought he's got the right side of the lane on his own. Dix was able to provide help defense coming form the opposite end of the box without losing cover of the passing line. And he also has suprisingly good hands as he recovers quickly form awkward drop passes and convert inside with either hands.

    The Baby Falcons also have another 6'4"-like player but is a bit on the heavy side and a tad slower in foot speed than Dix. Hughes also looks a bit knock-kneed. But he can be a project. Abaigar is another tall player who nver got to play much last season.

    ^ I believe Mark Juruena has shown up at a couple of tryouts over at Loyola Heights as well as at UERM.

    Friendly advice to the powers-that-be in San Marcelino: do EVERYTHING you can to keep Juruena, because this kid will surely be the next great King Falcon if you keep him in the lair and treat him right.

    So where is this kid Juruena going? He seems under-hyped for a UAAP Juniors MVP.
