A few years back, University of the Visayas (UV) and University of Cebu(UC) had a virtual tug-of-war for the services of a lanky 6 foot 10 Filipino-American. The young Gregory William Slaughter or Greg Slaughter for short decided to suit up for the powerhouse UV Green Lancers in the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI). He led the Lancers to several Championships and winning MVP awards along the way. He stated to get the attention from the coaches and scouts of Manila. His battles with UC big man Junmar Fajardo were classic. Both of them were shortlisted to join in a newly formed Smart-Gilas Developmental Basketball Team then but only Slaughter was allowed to join by his mother club.
The Gilas trained mostly in Manila, prompting Slaughter to decide to move to Ateneo de Manila University. At first, it stunned the UV management but in the end, they relented. When Slaughter left, UV’s CESAFI reign ended after losing to rivals UC Webmasters in last year’s finals.
After sitting out for a year, Greg Slaughter is now suiting up in his first season as an Ateneo Blue Eagle. So far after 3 games he is averaging 15 points per game, 7 rpg, and 2 blocks per game. Ateneo is so far undefeated this season. They have defeated Adamson, DLSU, and NU. In 3 games, Slaughter has shown that he is the premier center in Philippine college basketball. He has changed countless of shots and his mere presence changes the offensive game plans of coaches. He was voted as the best player of the game twice already and if he keeps this up, he will be one of the most coveted players coming out of college in the PBA.
