In my previous blog, I mentioned about the Kenneth-Bo connection. Two days ago, Beth Celis, in her column "In Huddle" in Inquirer Sports wondered about the same.

Here's a quote from her article:

Many people were a bit surprised when Coke hired former Air21 head coach Bo Perasol to assist head mentor Kenneth Duremdes on the bench.

Where was the connection? I, like several others, wondered. Kenneth was from Adamson U while Bo was a product of the University of the Philippines.

Had they worked or played together in their pre-PBA days? Or could it be that Bo was a personal choice of Coke team manager/governor Jose Bayani “JB” Baylon who’s also an alumnus of UP?"
