Duremdes, Aquino, Hizon
With the Adamson Falcons taking a new direction after Leo Austria announced his decision to vacate his post as the head coach of the Men's Senior Basketball team, former Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) MVP and one-time King Falcon Kenneth Duremdes has taken on the challenge of leading the team. Not only, the Durembdes will be assisted by two fellow PBA legends. Newly inducted Adamson University Sports Hall of Famer Marlou Aquino will be sharpening the big man skills while his fellow Baranggay Ginebra teammate Vince Hizon will be the shooting and offensive skills coach. The team is focused on rebuilding the program with numerous graduating seniors and a handful of very promising young athletes who will have much to learn from these basketball greats. "It's a leap of faith but I think it's time to impart the things I've learned to the next generation of student-athletes", shared Hizon who was once the playing assistant coach for the IloIlo Megavoltz of the now defunct MBA. "I've learned a lot from playing under many coaches like Coach Perry Ronquillo, Coach Chot Reyes, Coach Baby Dalupan, Coach Darryl Dawkins in the USBL, and of course Coach Jaworski who is my mentor to this day. I was trained under a US Nationally ranked high school program at Mater Dei in California, and later under Coach Don Johnson, the first All-American under the legendary John Wooden at UCLA." Hizon also hopes that his vast experience will guide him through this new chapter of his basketball career.
