Some Eagles At Last...

Finally, what I thought could not happen has now materialize. I was really hoping that at least one Ateneo Blue Eagle would land on my favorite PBA Team's nest. Finally has traded long time star point with not just one Eagle, but a couple. And their not just any Blue Eagles, they were King Eagles during their last year in the UAAP collegiate basketball scene.
Tenorio, Fonacier join Aces Finally, LA Tenorio, the star point guard of his time and previously heir apparent to another King Eagle Olsen Racela of Magnolia has landed. He now fills the void for the Alaska Aces, the void that I thought was a key missing component for any of their championship campaigns. Alaska has not had any pure point guard in their ranks, and I think LA being a star point guard for at least 3 years in Ateneo, and backup to Olsen will now offer more room for Willie Miller to do what he does best.
The other King Eagle was Larry Fonacier. Although he was not able to play his last year with the Blue Eagles because of an ACL injury, he surprised everyone in his rookie year in the PBA when he bagged the ROY award. Being part of Red Bull back then along side fellow Eagles Villanueva and Bugia (now that was a dream come true); he was just killing it in the three point range. I was actually surprised when he traded to Magnolia last year, but I guess that was to come when Villanueva was also shipped to Magnolia. But this is even more of a surprise now since Fonacier is one of the most dominant shooters out there.
Well, this could only be good news for the Aces, because that means more range for them, and maybe more execution of plays.
