MANILA, Philippines - Jumbo Plastic Linoleum, with UST star Aljon Mariano and former Perpetual Help top gun Jett Vidal at the helm, hopes to make an immediate impact with a mix of veteran and young players as it debuts in the upcoming second conference of the PBA D-League.

“We’re the new kids on the block but we hope to compete and give the established teams a good fight,” said Jimmy dela Cruz, team owner of the country’s top linoleum maker. “We have a good mix of young and veteran players.”

Dela Cruz, who will have son, Jefferson, as his representative, said they decided to join the league because of their desire to help young players reach their full potential.
“Aside from that, D-League is fast gaining a wide audience so it’s one way to promote our own product,” said dela Cruz, who tapped Hope Christian High School coach Stevenson Tiu to handle his team.

Jumbo Plastic Linoleum is manufactured by a 100 percent Filipino-owned company that produces Quality PVC floormatting or linoleum, PVC transparent and colored sheeting for home and industrial use. They also make  quality PVC laminated tablecloths and shower curtains with a wide selection of designs for home improvements.

Joining Mariano and Vidal in the squad are Ateneo’s Luis Lorenzo Gonzales and Jumbo Escueta, UST’s Edward Daquiaog, FEU’s Clarence Foronda, Dennis Santos of St. Clare, Letran’s Kirk del Rosario, Marte Gil of St. Clare, Mapua’s Macky Acosta, Perpetual’s Marlon Gomez and NU’s Choi Ignacio.

Out to provide experience to the team is former Alaska player Marvin Hayes.
