Mapua’s Time to Conquer: Former Ace Adrian Nocum Believes in NCAA Title Win

Adrian Nocum of Rain or Shine had every reason to be happy on Saturday as he was named the best player in the Elasto Painters’ win in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup over Blackwater. Nocum scored 14 points and his smile was from ear to ear. But his happiness wasn’t just because of the win or his personal performance. He was cheerful because his alma mater Mapua made it to the NCAA Season 99 Finals. He believes that this season is the Cardinals’ for the taking.

Nocum played a vital role in his college days at Mapua and despite an early exit in his final year, he was selected by Rain or Shine in this year’s draft. He still communicates with his former Mapua teammates and coach Randy Alcantara, who encouraged him to work more. Alcantara is also hoping to win an NCAA championship and Nocum would love to see him achieve it.

The best-of-three series for the NCAA Season 99 title between Mapua and San Beda begins on Wednesday at Mall of Asia Arena.
