LPU coach Gilbert Malabanan is happy to see Valdez, one of the team’s seniors, his game evolve as proved by his +9 efficiency rating inside the court.

“I’ll gonna say na nakita ko ang maturity niya, not only on the game but also on his attitude, and that’s number one. Ang laki ng ipinagbago ni Enoch when it becomes to attitude,” said Malabanan.

“Kaya medyo maganda ang nagagawa niya sa team because of his attitude and he knows that,” he added.

Renzo Navarro also keyed the Pirates win, drilling in four pressure-packed free throws in the 13.2 seconds to seal the deal.

The Altas fell to 2-3.
