Two-way player Wendell Comboy receieves Player of the Week citation


FEU’s Wendell Comboy took home the Chooks-to-Go Collegiate Press Corps UAAP Player of the Week after leading his team to two straight victories.

The Tams first vented out their frustrations against the NU Bulldogs on Wednesday, as Comboy led his team with 18 points on 7-of-12 from the field.

But it was their game against the undefeated Adamson Soaring Falcons on Sunday that became a defining moment for Comboy.

Behind his 13 points is his game-winning block from Sean Manganti from the three-point line, which allowed FEU to seal the win.

“Pero yun yung talagang nagbibigay sa akin ng playing time,” said Comboy about his defensive skills.

“Sabi nga ni Coach Olsen [Racela] na dumepensa muna ako tsaka dadating yung opensa ko. Bonus nalang yun.”

Comboy was chosen over UST’s CJ Cansino, Ateneo’s Angelo Kouame, and UP’s Bright Akhuetie.
