Iloilo coach hailed for guiding UAAP star Mark Nonoy to renaissance
The pandemic wreaked havoc on plans worldwide, including La Salle Mark Nonoy’s. A top talent in Philippine collegiate basketball, Nonoy faced rising expectations and was determined to meet them. However, the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted reality, ending his stint at the University of Santo Tomas. Nonoy found himself at La Salle, facing new challenges and a different style of play. Despite the setbacks, Nonoy remained resilient, attributing his success to his coach, Vincent “Bing” Conlu, who encouraged him to give his best for the team. With Season 86 being his last chance for a resurgence in the UAAP, Nonoy is playing a vital role in La Salle’s pursuit of the championship, perhaps he’ll continue listening to his secret weapon’s advice.
