Encho Serrano endures fever on his career game vs UE


Encho Serrano showed up for La Salle in a big way.

Despite nursing a fever which resulted the blue-chip recruit a trip to the hospital this morning, he still managed to lead La Salle with his 18 points, six rebounds, and two steals in their 79-59 victory against UE Red Warriors.

It didn’t matter if Serrano was feeling under the weather, as he cannot afford to miss a single game for La Salle.

“Actually, may lagnat ako ngayon e,” said Serrano.

“Kaninang umaga nasa ospital ako. Kaya lang sabi ko maglalaro ako sabi kong ganun.”

Serrano also got a little bit of help from Andrei Caracut and Santi Santillan to register their fifth win of the season.

But what matters most is that Serrano finally got his groove in the seniors division, and he hopes that he could make a huge leap on his development.

“Ako, gusto ko lang talaga makalaro para makuha ko yung kumpyansa ko. Sana, magtuloy-tuloy na,” Serrano explained.
