ALMOST always, hardcourt heroes are associated with showbiz beauties. Two-time UAAP champion and finals MVP Jeron Teng is one of them, but it seems after his breakup with ABS-CBN actress Jane Oineza last year, his lovelife front became so quiet. Or maybe, he’s just setting it aside, making his career his focus.
And it is paying off. On Wednesday during lunch at Bagoong Club restaurant in Quezon City, he officially signed with the AMA Online Education for the upcoming season of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Development League (D-League).
As the PBA D-League’s top draft pick, the collegiate basketball star feels the need to bring his best to represent one of the country’s top online schools. “I’m really looking forward to playing alongside the AMA OED this season. Representing an institution like AMA gives me a sense of pride and motivation to perform my best. I’m grateful to be given the opportunity to carry the flag for students of AMA’s online schools,” says Teng.
Dr. Amable C. Aguiluz IX, Vice Chairman and CEO of AMA Education System said: “We’re happy to have Jeron join our team. The leadership and skill he exhibited during his days in collegiate basketball will certainly be an asset for the team in the upcoming seasons. We are confident that Jeron can boost the team’s morale and motivate his teammates to perform their best.”
Teng made his debut yesterday, January 19 for the PBA D-League Aspirant’s cup as the AMA OED took on the newcomer Batangas Team during the opening day of the league.
