    “Napakagandang liga nito, napakaraming magagaling na players na nanggaling dito. Ako ay natutuwa na narito rin ako sa bagong tahanan ng NCAA,” shared Martin.

    Meanwhile Sophia is no newbie when it comes to NCAA as she is an alumna of San Beda University.

    “It’s really close to home. It’s really close to my heart and I’m so grateful to be given this opportunity [to host],” she said.

    ‘Rise Up Stronger: The Road to NCAA Season 96’ promises to give sports fans the excitement of watching NCAA again soon on the Kapuso Network.
