A new-look Far Eastern University Tamaraws squad approaches the UAAP’s 76th season with renewed hope and vigor. After missing the Final Four last season, the winningest senior basketball team in the league vows to do better this year. New head coach Nash Racela sees the Tams’ quickness to be their biggest advantage this season. “We will rely heavily on our quickness and the skills of our guards this season because we are quite small compared to the other teams.
Gone now are FEU’s big men from last year like Mark and Arvie Bringas, and John Foronda. And then Russel (Escoto) sustained an ACL injury recently. "Fortunately for us, we have some of the most talented guards in the league like RR (Garcia), Terrence (Romeo) and Mike (Tolomia),” said Racela who is hoping to lead FEU at least to the semis round this year. The Tams lost to La Salle last year, 66-69, in a sudden death game for the fourth semis slot in a disappointing ending to season that started with four straight wins.
