Avarientos won Rookie of the Year.
Ulsan Hyundai Mobis’ Ronjay Avarientos won the Rookie of the Year award at the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Pro Basketball regular league ceremony held at the Grand Intercontinental Seoul Parnas Grand Ballroom on the 30th. Avarientos was honored with 101 votes out of a total of 109 in the press vote.
One of the biggest issues in KBL this season was the joining of Filipino Asian Quarter players. The Filipino players who landed at KBL showed off their outstanding skills and delighted the eyes of the fans.
Avarientos, who joined Hyundai Mobis, was one of the front runners. He played in 51 games and averaged 13.6 points and 4.8 assists, and was mentioned as a strong rookie candidate early on. It is Avarientos who has created a lot of topics based not only on his skills but also on his outstanding showmanship and outstanding personal skills.
With the recruitment of Avarientos, Hyundai Mobis, which relieved concerns about point guards, broke the pre-season expectations and finished the regular season with an excellent record of 34 wins and 20 losses. He was clearly a blessing that came to Hyundai Mobis.
Hyundai Mobis, where Lee Woo-seok won the Rookie of the Year award last year, became the club that produced the Rookie of the Year award for the second year in a row with the award of Avarientos. Avarientos was the first player with a foreign nationality to be honored with the KBL Rookie of the Year award. 온라인바카라
Avarientos said, “I am grateful to the manager, coaches, and all of the players. I am grateful to the players and fans who are a great source of strength on and off the court. I am very happy living in Korea and the award comes with confidence.”
