Cebu Live 8 Questions with Jerie Pingoy

Cebu Live had an opportunity to ask 8 questions to one of the best high school basketball players in the country right now.  Cebuano Jerie Marlon Pingoy is the reigning MVP of the UAAP Jr. basketball tournament. His team the FEU-Diliman Baby Tamaraws is currently on top of the standings of Season 75 along with NU Bullpups with similar 6-0 slates. Pingoy is the son of namesake Jerry Pingoy who played in the PBA for Great Taste and Tanduay.  The younger Pingoy is now in Mongolia with the rest of the Energen Pilipinas U-18 team that will play in the 22nd FIBA-Asia U-18 Championships.  Here are his answers to the 8 questions of this blog:

Cebu Live: “What is the difference with your UAAP Jrs. to your Cebu High School league?”
JMP: “It’s very different kay mas daku ni na liga ang UAAP and all the teams kay di basta-basta.” (It’s very different because UAAP is way bigger league than what I am used to and all the teams are strong.)

Cebu Live: “Who is your basketball idol growing up? Local and NBA.”
JMP: “Allen Iverson for the NBA and my father for local.”
Cebu Live: “Whose game are you trying to pattern?”
JMP: “Aside from my father, I’m trying to follow Isaiah Thomas‘ playing style.”
Cebu Live: “How far do you think the Baby Tamaraws go this season?”
JMP: “We are taking it one game at a time and hopefully, we can reach the finals.”
Cebu Live: “What do you miss most about Cebu?”
JMP: “Ay daghan. haha. Especially pagkaon sa Pasil ug pungko-pungko sa Lahug. And of course, my family and friends.” ( Many. Haha. Especially the food in Pasil and “the pungko-pungko” in Lahug. . And of course, my family and friends.)
Ginabot, Ngohiong, etc.

Pungko-Pungko de Cebu ;)

Cebu Live: “How tall are you now?”
JMP: “5’9″
Cebu Live: “Which Brangay did you live in Cebu?”
JMP: “Apas and Pasil”
Cebu Live: “What school did you play for while in Cebu?”
JMP: “I started playing varsity basketball only when I entered high school. I played one year for University of Cebu before moving to FEU”
The true-blue Cebuano could be the next star that will follow of the footsteps of Cebuano guards who succeeded in the Philippine Basketball Association like Boy Cabahug, Al Solis, and Don-Don Hontiveros.  By the end of this year’s basketball season, he will be one of the most sought after recruits in college ranks.  Cebu Live prays for his continued development and success.  This blog will always be a big fan.
