A New Star in Ulsan

The Korean Basketball League (KBL) has witnessed the arrival of a promising Filipino talent, Miguel Oczon, who has joined Ulsan Hyundai Mobis. The 23-year-old guard, hailing from Davao City, has bid farewell to his college team, the College of Saint Benilde (CSB), to embark on this new challenge.

From CSB to KBL: Oczon's Journey

Oczon, who transferred to CSB after a season at National University, leaves behind two years of eligibility in the NCAA. His impressive stats of 12.63 points, 4.97 rebounds, and 2.34 assists over 38 games have laid a solid foundation for his professional career. Charles Tiu, the Blazers' head coach, praised Oczon’s hard work and dedication, which have been pivotal in his development as a player.

Filling Big Shoes

Stepping into the KBL, Oczon faces the task of filling the shoes of RJ Abarrientos, last season's Rookie of the Year, who left Ulsan Hyundai for the Shinshu Brave Warriors. Oczon’s arrival is a significant move for Ulsan Hyundai Mobis, currently positioned at 8-9 in the league standings. The team is optimistic about the synergy he will create with other players, particularly rookie Park Mu-bin.

A Filipino Trend in KBL

Oczon is not alone in representing Filipino talent in the KBL. He joins other Filipinos like Rhenz Abando, SJ Belangel, Juan Gomez de Liano, Dave Ildefonso, Ethan Alvano, Avan Nava, and Calvin Epistola, showcasing the Philippines' rising presence in Korean basketball.

As the new season unfolds, all eyes will be on Miguel Oczon, whose journey from the NCAA to the KBL is not just a personal achievement, but a testament to the growing impact of Filipino players in the international basketball scene.
