Coach Cone praised Cu, emphasizing the rookie’s outstanding traits on and off the floor. Despite the lack of points, Cone noted Cu’s ability to see the floor effectively, make clever passes, and contribute positively to the team’s decision-making.
The recent draft’s 23rd overall choice has been allowed to exhibit his abilities, notably in the absence of Jamie Malonzo due to a wrist injury. Cu was inserted into the starting lineup for the first game of the conference, demonstrating the team’s faith in his potential influence.
Cu, a former La Salle player who also played for Ginebra’s PBA 3×3 squad, expressed thanks for the confidence and opportunity bestowed to him early in his PBA career. He highlighted that his emphasis extends beyond scoring, recognizing that the squad has various alternatives. Cu sees his job as one where he can contribute to several game parts.
Cu’s propensity to score has been noticeable in practice, where he thrives in shooting exercises, according to Coach Cone. Despite not reaching the basket in actual games, Cone believes Cu can be a productive scorer for the club if he begins making shots. Cone also lauded Cu’s decision-making abilities, notably on defense, emphasizing his well-rounded contribution to the squad.
Cu’s scoring prowess is expected to emerge in future games, bringing another facet to Ginebra’s already great team as he continues to embrace the opportunity offered to him by the coaching staff and fans alike.
