University of the Philippines’ already-massive frontline gets even bigger with the addition of 6-foot-8 Filipino-American Sean Alter.

The 19-year-old formalized his commitment to the Fighting Maroons just as he and Fil-Nation Select were about to do battle with NU-Nazareth School for the 2023 Smart-NBTC Division 1 championship.

“Sean’s another important piece to the puzzle for us to keep competing in the UAAP,” said UP basketball program director Bo Perasol.

Alter averaged 5.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in Fil-Nation’s thus far unbeaten run in the NBTC National Finals. He joins 6-7 NCAA 98 Juniors MVP Luis Pablo and 6-8 Seven Gagate in the maroon-and-green rotation of bigs that still includes 6-11 UAAP Season 85 Men’s basketball tournament MVP Malick Diouf.

He will be good to go for UP in Season 86.

The Fighting Maroons is seeking a second title out of the last three following a runner-up finish last season. Coach Goldwin Monteverde continues to call the shots, while JD Cagulangan, Harold Alarcon, and the returning CJ Cansino show the way.
