NCAA Season 94 is set to open at the Mall of Asia Arena on Saturday, and they've just announced the lineup of their 2018 courtside reporters. Three ladies are returning, while two fresh faces will join the team this year to deliver in-game updates, get some inside scoops on the coaches and the teams, and, essentially, add more color to the otherwise typical basketball games.
First, we take a look at the two newbies. And what we can tell you right now is that they've got the personality to make reporting from the sidelines more dun and interesting.
Chase is a fresh AB Literature graduate from the University of Santo Tomas, who might be working as a courtside reporter for the first time, but she has a lot of history with a mic in her hand.
During her time in college, she was a student leader, and also hosted a lot of events inside and outside the university.
In elementary, she won the badminton championship when she was in grade 6. When she was in high school, she scored the volleyball MVP award on her third year. Sports does run in her blood, and we think she's perfect for the job.
Aya De Quiroz
Aya, on the other hand, is an incoming fourth year media and entertainment management student in thte University of Asia and the Pacific.
In addition, she's also a student jock for RX 93.1, where she caught wind of the open call auditions to be a courtside reporter.
She's always been immersed in sports even when she's just watching at home. Add that to her dream of beign a broadcaster, and she fits right into the lineup.
Don't tell us you don't know about Roxanne. Returning for the third time, this experienced courtside reporter is also an experienced actress, appearing on several TV shows.
We hope to see her do movies and more teleseryes, but for the time being, we're not complaining about her recurring role courtside.
If you didn't know it yet, Ceej Tantengco is a three-time Palanca Award-rinning writer. Plus, she won those awards when she was in high school! She's the very definition of beauty and brains.
Ceej has also written for several publications and worked as a multimedia producer right after college.
Her job is more than just to look pretty. Ceej has game and very few can match her.
Built like a beauty queen from head to toe, Angelique Manto also graduated from UST, majoring in Communication Arts. With her kind of beauty and charm, she could easily pass for an actress and model.
Apparently, one of her ultimate dreams is to represent the Philippines in the Miss Universe pageant.
She started her courtside reporting career back in 2015, and it doesn't look like she's going to stop anytime in the near future.
