    The Green Archers will kick start their preparations for the 2011 UAAP basketball season by participating in the Fil-Oil Summer League. The lineup for this tournament lists 20 players, featuring a mix of old faces and new recruits.

    ANDRADA, Yutien
    ATKINS, Simon
    DE LA PAZ, Luigi
    ELORDE, Nico
    GOTLADERA, Alfonzo
    HERRERA, Aiki
    MARATA, Joseph
    MENDOZA, Jovet
    PAREDES, Papot
    PATE, Michael
    REYES, Martin
    SARA, Roldan
    TAMPUS, Jarelan
    TORRES, Norbert
    VAN OPSTAL, Arnold
    VIGIL, Louie
    VOSOTROS, Almond
    WEBB, Joshua

    Returnees are 5th year player Atkins, veterans Andrada, Marata, Mendoza, Villanueva, and Webb, sophomores dela Paz, Elorde, Herrera, Paredes, Reyes, Tampus, and Vosotros. LA Revilla returns to the team after a 2-year absence due to medical reasons.

    Newcomers are Alfonso Gotladera and Roldan Sara from San Beda, Michael Pate from La Salle Greenhills, Arnold Van Opstal from La Salle Zobel, Louie Vigil of JRU and Filipino-Canadian Norbert Torres. They bring a combination of height, heft, speed, shotmaking, and playmaking to the equation.

    Players not in this lineup who were on last year’s team are Ferdinand, Joel Tolentino, and Gab Banal. Tolentino and Banal transferred schools.

    Our first game is on Saturday, April 9 against the UST Tigers, a team aching for payback after a couple of seasons of futility against the Green Archers.  Our team plays 2 games after Holy Week, then takes almost a month away for their annual training trip to the US, then play 4 games in 7 days against NU (May 25), San Beda (May 28), Lyceum (June 1), and finally against arch-rival Ateno on June 4.

    The games against our fellow UAAP teams will be interesting, since they should serve as a preview of what could happen come July.

    With this lineup, hopes are high that the Archers can improve on their 4th place finish in Season 73. If you want to have a better idea of what this team is capable of, come to the Arena in San Juan and see them in action.

      Why did Joel and Gab transferrred? I think they’re doing just fine in our team and still developing their potential.

      i checked out the line-ups of the other teams and i believe we have a really good one for this tournament. great chance to have some court time together as a unit. hope the rookies could wow us the way almond, oda, luigi and nico did last year in this league…as for those names, sana they got more up their sleeves now that they got a year under their belt…for the vets, kaya nyo na yan, magaling naman kayo talaga eh… :)
