Quiambao is determined to lead his team to success no matter what. He is ready to contribute to the team’s winning effort in any aspect of the game whether it is passing or defending. He believes that his fellow teammates are hungry for the opportunity and are eager to display their skills on the court

“Teamwork is critical for us and mental toughness would be required as we advance forward.” – Ethan Quiambao.

Winborn, who averages 37 points per game, has been the focal point on the team’s offense with his staggering performances lifting Van Nuys to numerous victories.
