Star coach Chito Victolero thinks Cinmeon Bowers could match-up well with Brownlee, Durham



Chito Victolero immediately liked what he saw following Star’s first day of practice with new import Cinmeon Bowers on Monday at the Ronac gym in San Juan.

While he’s still bulky at 245 pounds, Victolero said the 6-5 Bowers can run the floor and can even be the team’s “point forward” for the PBA Governors’ Cup scheduled to open this July 19.

“He’s more active on both ends defense and offense. Saka yung defense niya, ganda siya mag-react, maganda ang motor nito, very athletic, plus the fact na sanay siya maglaro ng point forward, puwede maglaro ng small at big,” said Victolero shortly after practice.

With his bulk and experience, Bowers could be the Hotshots’ answer to returning PBA imports led by San Miguel’s Wendell McKines, Phelps, Durham, who led Meralco to a runner-up finish last season, along with Brownlee, who will be entering his third stint with the defending champion Barangay Ginebra. – FOX Sports Asia
