Instead of being pressured, newly-appointed Perpetual Help coach Frankie Lim is welcoming the daunting challenge of helping the Altas win their first ever NCAA crown.
After he was tapped to initially serve as the team’s consultant last month, Lim, 57, found himself back in the spotlight as he was given the coaching reins in lieu of former Altas mentor Nosa Omorogbe who went back home to Nigeria to deal with pressing family matters.
While things developed quicker than he expected, Lim nonetheless admitted that he’ll be up to the task as the Altas, still searching for their first seniors crown since joining the NCAA in 1984, make an early buildup after missing the Final Four trip last year.
“I’m very happy and I’m excited also to coach this team,” he said in a phone interview with Tempo-Bulletin yesterday.
“But it’s a big challenge for all of us, not only for me, but for my coaching staff and the players as well.
Hopefully, we can come out and have a good finish in the leagues that we’re joining this off-season.”
While he admitted that they will have his hands full in “recruiting players to make this team stronger,” Lim could find it relatively easy for the Altas to buy in to his proven system that has produced four titles in five years for powerhouse San Beda.
The former pro league standout has a chance to see what Perpetual Help is capable of doing when the Altas, bannered by reigning NCAA Defensive Player of the Year awardee Prince Eze, plunge to action in the PBA D-League Aspirants Cup.
