Basketball Career:

After Kelvin Gregorio arrived in the stables of UE coach Dindo Pumaren, he immediately made a tremendous impact.

"The first time we saw Kelvin, we knew he has the talent and the potential to do better," said Pumaren. "He may be shy, but once the game starts, he becomes very aggressive."

The 6'4" forward from Rizal was instrumental in helping the Red Warriors reached the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) basketball championships where they eventually lost to La Salle.

Despite the loss, Gregorio showed consistency in game and even led his team in the scoring after the first round of the elimination with 11.9 points per game.

"Every year, Kelvin improves something in his game," Pumaren added. "His offense is there, but he continues to work on his dribbling and shooting. He can easily switch from 3 (small forward) to 4 (power forward). He works so hard."


Gregorio's versatility as a scorer and rebounder has helped developed him into a more well-rounded player as his career has progressed. His good length and outstanding timing make him an effective rebounder from the small forward position. It is, therefore, not surprising that he produced 9.7 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 16 games during the 2007 UAAP season.

During his 2008 stint at the Philippine Basketball League (PBL), he averaged 6.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 21.3 minutes of action.
