University of the East Bolsters Lineup with Fil-Canadian Sensation David Penney for UAAP Season 87

The University of the East (UE) Red Warriors have kicked off their offseason player acquisitions with a significant addition: one-and-done Fil-Canadian standout David Penney. Standing at an impressive 6-foot-2, Penney brings a formidable skill set to the Red Warriors, aiming to make an immediate impact in UAAP Season 87.

Penney arrives at UE after a standout stint at Simon Fraser University, where he showcased his prowess on the court. With averages of 12.1 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game, the dynamic guard proved himself as a versatile and impactful player. Notably, Penney shares ties with fellow Red Warrior Hunter Cruz-Dumont, as both athletes honed their skills at Simon Fraser University.

The confirmation of Penney’s move to the UAAP was made by Anthony Brodett of Phenom Championship Clinic, who represents the talented playmaker. In a statement shared via Facebook, Penney expressed his excitement about joining the University of the East and playing alongside notable teammates such as John Abate, Jack Cruz-Dumont, and Precious Momowei under the guidance of coach Jack Santiago.

“Can’t wait to join the University of the East and play with John, Jack, Precious, and play for coach Jack Santiago. Bomba UE,” remarked Penney, signaling his enthusiasm for the upcoming season.

The addition of Penney comes at a crucial time for the Red Warriors, following the departure of UAAP Season 86 standout Rey Remogat. As Remogat takes his talents to the University of the Philippines for Season 88 after completing his residency year, UE seeks to fill the void left by the former Mythical Five selection and MVP race runner-up.

In the wake of Remogat’s exit, Penney and his teammates aim to build on the promising momentum from last season’s sixth-place finish. With aspirations to break the school’s 15-year.
