All-Filipino UE Red Warriors All Set for UAAP 74

With a powerful all-Filipino lineup and a new leader who had excelled as a player for the team, the University of the East Red Warriors-Men’s Basketball Team is all set for hardcourt action for Season 74 of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines.

Now under new Head Coach Jerry Codiñera, himself a UE Red Warrior who helped steer the team to UAAP victory in 1984 and 1985, the UE Red Warriors, for its first ever UAAP 74 battle, will face off with the UP Fighting Maroons on Thursday, July 14, 3 pm, at the Araneta Coliseum. On Sunday, July 17, 3 pm, UE’s big men will be back at the Big Dome to square off against the UST Growling Tigers.

For their third game, the UE Red Warriors will be competing with another University Belt neighbor, the FEU Tamaraws, on July 21, Thursday, 3 pm, at the Araneta Coliseum. Two days later, on July 23, 3 pm, the UE squad will collide with the Ateneo Blue Eagles.

For their fifth game, on July 28, the UE Red Warriors get a different time slot and venue: 1 pm at the Philsports Complex, versus the Adamson Soaring Falcons. Three days later, on July 31, UE’s red icons will battle it out with the De La Salle Green Archers, 1 pm, at the Philsports Complex. The UE Red Warriors conclude their first-round exploits this season versus the NU Bulldogs on August 6, 1 pm, at the Big Dome.

Serving as the UE Red Warriors Captain Ball this season is point guard and off guard player Paul Christian Zamar (son of former UE Red Warriors coach, former UE Red Warrior and J. Codinera’s former team mate, David “Boycie” Zamar), with off guard mate Lucas Tagarda as Co-Captain.

In the UE lineup as power forwards are Christopher Joyce Javier (also in the center position), John Michael Noble (also in the forward post), Jairold Flores, Erwin Duran and Adrian Santos. In the center post is Ronnie Rosetom De Leon (former Junior UE Red Warrior like E. Duran, A. Santos, and P.C. Zamar). Playing as forwards are Ebrahim Enguio, Joseph Nicholas Montelibano, Jess Mar Sabangan and Jhon Rey Sumido. The team’s point guards are Von Arvie Chavez, Shej Roi Sumang and Benjamin James Zosa. Rounding out the UE squad is Lord Howier Casajeros as an off guard.

Majority of the UE Red Warriors-Men’s Basketball Team players are Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, major in Business Management students of the UE College of Business Administration-Manila (CBA). The lone exception is Captain Ball Paul Zamar, who is a 2010 BSBA Financial Management graduate of UE CBA Manila and is now a BS Hotel and Restaurant Management student of the UE College of Arts and Sciences-Manila.

Erwin Duran and Lucas Tagarda are 4th-year students, while Lord Howier Casajeros, Ebrahim Enguio, Jairold Flores and John Michael Noble are 3rd-year students. Adrian Santos and Jhon Rey Sumido are sophomores, while Von Arvie Chavez, Ronnie Rosetom De Leon, Christopher Joyce Javier, Joseph Nicholas Montelibano, Jess Mar Sabangan, Shej Roi Sumang and Benajmin James Zosa are freshmen.

UE is fielding an all-Filipino team to commemorate the 150th birthday of the country’s national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal who believed in the Filipino youth as the hope of the motherland.
