Monster Import of Northport Jois Venky shines as they defeat Terrafirma

In an unexpected twist in the Philippine Basketball Commissioner’s Cup, the emphasis went to under-the-radar immigrant Venky Jois, who played a crucial part in NorthPort’s exciting 108-103 triumph against Terrafirma. The game also highlighted Terrafirma’s top draft selection, Stephen Holt, who, despite the setback, stays focused on his development as a player.

Monster Import Northport Venky Jois, who is 6 feet 4 inches tall, proved his scoring power with 43 points and his versatility with ten rebounds, three assists, and three steals. Jois recognizes the need to broaden his contributions in the future, saying, “I think what makes me a great player is that I can find people and pass well.” I may not go for 43, but my assist totals may increase.”

On the other hand, Holt’s performance was modest, with 11 points, but his six rebounds, five assists, and four thefts demonstrate his ability to impact all game areas. Despite missing a game-tying three-pointer, Holt is unfazed, saying, “It’s just one loss, but I think I had a pretty good preseason; I got better every single game, and I won’t let this one (mediocre) game affect me.”

NorthPort’s next task is a Sunday match against Rain or Shine, in which Jois may encounter physical challenges. Meanwhile, Terrafirma will face Blackwater on Wednesday at the Ynares Center in Antipolo after resolving concerns raised following their loss.

NorthPort’s Arvin Tolentino and Joshua Munzon both had excellent games, with Tolentino scoring 16 points and Munzon scoring 11 points, five rebounds, five assists, and two steals.

In other news, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has been activated by TNT for an upcoming match against Converge in Antipolo. Hollis-Jefferson returns after missing Magnolia’s opening night loss due to illness. This comes after TNT’s other import, Quincy Miller, put 37 points in a 110-102 loss in the East Asia Super League.

Basketball fans are in for an exciting season as the PBA Commissioner’s Cup unfolds, with surprising talents like Jois making their impact and veteran players like Holt looking to show their value.
