Several days after the Red Lions returned from their three week gruelling training in the Abunassar Basketball Camp, Inboundpass came out with an exclusive report about the missing Nigerian recruit Kevin Emeka Udo. (Check out the article at Inboundpass.com)
Word had it that he left the training camp for Nigeria to care for his ailing father. He vowed to return to the Lion’s Den but he has not been heard from since. Speculations starting brewing left and right, as to his whereabouts. No one knew for sure.
Just this morning, the Inquirer reported that Coach Frankie Lim had dropped Udo from the fifteen man roster of the Red Lions. I thought that it was a wise decision to make the move and pick a more able and ready player from his deep pool of talents. Anyway, the Bedan community has been scarred from this controversy. But really, Udo was not that big of a loss for the Red Lions. One funny thing, though, what does the NCAA Mancom do now with their One Import Rule???
So as the opening tipoff draws near, we await further development from the Red side of things. Who fills slot number 15?? Abangan!!
