Xavier alumnus Jandric Lim interviews High3 Golden Stallion Tyler Tio invited in the SLAM Rising Stars Classic (March 29 at 7 pm, FOX Sports).

By Jandric Lim
Tyler Tio
High School: Xavier School (3rd year)
College commitment: “As of now, none. I don’t really know yet where I want to go.“

Height: 5’11”

Preferred playing position: “I think I have a bigger advantage at the point guard position because of my height. If I play shooting guard, I will be undersized in the college game but if I play point guard, I’ll be able to have a little bit of an advantage height-wise.“

Guy you’d compare your playing style to in the UAAP or NCAA: “Current players I don’t think so, pero people tell me that I remind them of Chris Tiu because we don’t rely much on our athleticism. We rely on skill and basketball IQ cause I’m not the most athletically gifted, but I find ways to contribute for the team.” (Humbly denies to comment on looks.)

Favorite PBA team: Alaska Aces
