Cebuano hoops star Darrell Shane Menina gets another shot at making a name for himself on a much-bigger stage as he joins the Arellano University Chiefs in their buildup for the upcoming NCAA Season 98.
After introducing himself to national basketball fans way back in 2015 when he joined the Mapua Cardinals after a successful high school career with the University of Cebu, Menina has since hopped schools. He also played for National University before returning to UC in 2019 and leading that squad to the semifinals.
After that, he also suited up for MJAS Zenith in the Pilipinas VisMin Cup and has since become a household name in Cebu hoops, winning Most Valuable Player awards in virtually every tournament he plays in.
However, his aspirations for bigger things for himself and his family led him back to Manila where he will now play for the Chiefs under head coach Cholo Martin.
“Arellano University welcomed me with open arms. I thank God for giving me another chance to return to the NCAA. I also would like to thank the management of AU especially Mr. Peter Cayco for giving me this chance to play for the school in the NCAA and the Filoil tournament,” said Menina.
The 25-year-old will try to make the most out of every single second he earns on the floor as he will be a “one-and-done” student-athlete for the Chiefs.
“This is a huge opportunity for me, and I just feel so blessed to get one last shot at playing college basketball here in Manila. I will grab and cherish this opportunity since this will be my last playing year,” added Menina.
