After 4 developmental seasons and 37 seasons of championship drought, the JRU management has decided to try another luck with a new mentor, after not renewing former Coach Ariel Vanguardia’s contract with the school. His name? Vergel Meneses, a former JRC Heavy Bomber who played for them from 1986-1989.

Meneses, now 40, played under the tutelage of Kiko Calilan (JRU’s last champion coach in 1972), had the experience in the game, as long as they will use their heart and skills. A former PBA MVP and former assistant coach of Allan Gregorio in Burger King in the PBL last year, he is already a proven factor in the game of Basketball as he wanted to duplicate fellow PBA MVP Ato Agustin, as a “no-experience turned winning coach”.

Assisting him are Ricky Alcantara, Vic Escudero, Agustin Tiongco, and Nat Gregorio.
