SEAGames2019: Joshua Retamar’s superb play doesn’t surprise veteran teammate
Retamar's teammates are not surprised with how he is performing, least of all national team mainstay Bryan Bagunas. The two played together at National University in UAAP Season 81, when Retamar — then a rookie — helped Bagunas graduate as a champion.
It also helps that Retamar is receiving advice from a five-time UAAP Most Valuable Player. Marck Espejo, making his return to the national team after missing the SEA Games in 2015, said he makes it a point to encourage Retamar before every game.
Retamar will be tested again on Friday, as the Philippines takes on Indonesia to determine which side gets the top seed in Group A. Both teams are already through to the semifinals, but the winner of the match likely avoids defending champion Thailand in the next phase.Read more: ABS-CBN News
