LIPAT sa Nueva Ecija si veteran Gab Banal matapos kalsuhan ang 2-taong kontrata niya sa Bacoor Strikers
Opisyal nang pumirma si Banal para sa Rice Vanguards, kinumpirma ni Nueva Ecija coach Charles Tiu.
“It’s a very big coup for us,” pahayag ni Tiu. “He was a former MVP in our league and is a very good leader.”
“His work ethic is tremendous and he can do so many different things offensively, giving us versatility.”
Dalawang taon rin si Banal sa Bacoor at noong Datu Cup, umariba siya ng average na18.2 points, 8.9 rebounds, and 6.4 assists para kunin ang MVP plum.
Nitong Lakan Cup naman, nagposte siya ng 13.9 points, 5.9 rebounds, 5.9 assists, and 1.0 steals per game.
Malaki ang pasasalamat ni Gab dahil nagsilbi na ring pamilya niya ang Bacoor.
“Thank you for two great years of fun memories and experiences,” madamdaming pahayag ng 29-anyos na cager.
“Thank you Chaye Cabal-Revilla and Cong. Strike Revilla for treating me as your own. Thank you to the awesome people of Bacoor for your undying support. Bacoor City will always be in my heart.” (Aivan Episcope)
