Bal David resigns as UST head coach

Bal David resigns as UST head coach
UAAP

Bal David stepped down as head coach of the University of Santo Tomas men’s basketball team.

The Varsitarian, official student publication of the said university, reported this development on Thursday.

David was part of the UST squad that won four titles in the early 1990s with legendary mentor Aric del Rosario at the helm.

But great as he was as a UST cager, David wasn’t as successful as a tactician.

Under the former Barangay Ginebra ace, the Growling Tigers struggled mightily in Season 85 of the UAAP, where they finished with only one victory in 14 games.

He replaced fellow alumnus Jinino Manansala last year.

The search for the new UST mentor officially starts today.
