After securing the commitment of Mark Omega and Peter Rosillo last February, the Knights have also secured the transfer of one of the rising basketball stars of the NCAA last season, Jun Roque.

Ending a two-year stint, the 6-foot-4 guard decided to part ways with the University of Perpetual Help System DALTA.  

In NCAA Season 99, he was named the Most Improved Player and was awarded as one of the Mythical Five alongside MVP Clint Escamis, Enoch Valdez, JP Maguliano, and Warren Bonifacio as he led the Altas to a 10-8 record, finishing fifth-place in the tournament. 

Meanwhile, coming off an impressive rookie year this previous season, Rosillo left Mapua University headed over to the Muralla-based team.

The former Adamson Baby Falcon was one of the cornerstones for the Cardinals title bid, a run that saw them duke it out with San Beda University, eventually settling for silver after losing in three games. 

Roque and Omega were a product of Colegio de San Juan de Letran and will look to show the spirit of a true Knight as they suit up in Season 101 along with Rosillo.
