Following his departure from Jose Rizal University, William Sy has decided to transfer to Lyceum of the Philippines as he looks to continue his NCAA career.

Sy will serve a one-year residency before suiting up for the Pirates in Season 101. The 5-foot-9 guard can still have three years of eligibility in the collegiate ranks.

The 21-year-old Sy, who played for the Heavy Bombers for in Seasons 98 and 99, shared that he attended a tryout at Lyceum hoping to improve his skills.

“After I properly left my previous school which I still love, I started looking for a school. I just wanted to keep getting better and I just wanted to work on myself,” Sy told GMA Integrated News.

“Napunta po ako sa mga school na ang babait din ng mga coaches and players and I learned a lot. I finally tried out for LPU through the assistance of Coach Denok Miranda of FEU and Coach MC Caceres of LPU. Buti po nagustuhan po ng coaches ang meron ako.”

[After I properly left my previous school which I still love, I started looking for a school. I just wanted to keep getting better and I just wanted to work on myself… I was able to visit schools where the coaches and players are kind and I learned a lot. I finally tried out for LPU through the assistance of coach Denok Miranda of FEU and Coach MC Caceres of LPU. And it’s a good thing the coaches liked what I had.]

Sy will be a huge addition to Lyceum, which is coming off back-to-back Final Four runs under the tutelage of head coach Gilbert Malabanan. He will join a stacked Pirates’ roster that will feature Mclaude Guadaña, John Barba, John Bravo, and Gyle Montaño.
