Roger Pogoy among Fiba’s ‘most improved players’ in Asia
ROGER Pogoy has been ranked by Fiba.com as one of the most improved players in Asia.
Pogoy made the list based on comparative statistics from the Fiba Asia Cup 2017 to the 2021 Fiba Asia Cup qualifiers first window held last February.
During the first window of the qualifiers, Pogoy averaged 16 points and six rebounds in 22.8 minutes, an improvement from his average of 7.0 points and 3.5 rebounds during the 2017 Fiba Asia Cup.
Fiba.com described Pogoy as such: “As a solid defensive wing who can score in multiple ways, Pogoy has been valuable to Gilas. Alongside veteran teammates with bigger roles like Jayson Castro, Pogoy has done well in plugging as a role player.”
“Playing with a younger squad at the Qualifiers, the national team needed him to shoulder a bit more of the load and Pogoy responded with an efficient scoring game,” according to Fiba.com.
Pogoy was among the seven most improved players in Asia. He was joined in the list by Muin Bek Hafeez of India, Hassan Abdullah of Iraq, Maxim Marchuk of Kazakhstan, Jordan Ngatai of New Zealand, Abdelrahman Yehia Abdelhaleem of Qatar, and Abdulwahab Alhamwi of Syria.
