LA Tenorio was named MVP after a stellar performance in William Jones Cup 2012 where Gilas Pilipinas beat a USA team. Tenorio is a spitfire pointguard that can outrebound, outhustle and outmaneuver any defender. LA is a pesky defender at guard position, a three-point threat and a fiery slasher to the basket.
