Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netAfter missing the Final Four last year, Letran coach Jeff Napa has stressed that this time the load could not be carried by the veterans alone.That’s why he was satisfied when role players like Jeo Ambohot produced huge contributions on Tuesday when the Knights fended off Emilio Aguinaldo College, 83-80, and lock down their first win of NCAA Season 93.ADVERTISEMENT “It’s a given that all of my players will step up. It’s really just a matter of time on when they can compliment, especially that Rey (Nambatac) is being guarded heavily,” the mentor said.Showing that he’s an able finisher for Nambatac’s pick-and-roll plays, Ambohot impressed in the game as he fired a team-best 15 points, seven rebounds, and two blocks in the win.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool starsMore importantly, the 6-foot-5 big man limited the Generals’ towering Hamadou Laminou to just seven points in the tiff, negating the latter’s presence down low.But the 20-year-old center deflected the credit.
