But unlike the eight other hoopers, Thirdy and Kiefer Ravena, Juan and Javi Gomez de Liano, Bobby Ray Parks, Kemark Carino, Dwight Ramos and Kobe Paras, the second-generation basketball star will be playing as a local.

This as the son of PBA great Marlou Aquino is of Japanese nationality, owing to his roots on his mother’s side.

Shinshu playes Alvark Tokyo Saturday where Aquino is expected to make his debut.
