Jio Jalalon bothered by critics but had eight points, nine assists and seven rebounds against Letran

Jio Jalalon

Despite being distracted by critics, Jiovani Jalalon still churned out a productive performance, leading to a victory against the unbeaten Mapua according to Fox Sports Asia.

The 5-foot-11 Jalalon missed his first 11 attempts before making three of his next five to finish with eight points, nine assists and seven rebounds, a near triple-double performance that’s considered by many as solid in the collegiate level.

But the former Sinag Pilipinas standout knows he could have done better, something that his fans—and critics too—were anticipating following their tough 79-89 loss to defending champion Letran last week.


Jio should learn how to detach himself from detractors moving forward. This was only his 4th game with Arellano this season, and more criticisms will surely come. Learn from the pros. Get advice from his coach on how to best deal with this problem, and please focus on the game!
