Migs Oczon, Former Benilde Star, Ready for KBL Debut

Migs Oczon Set to Debut in South Korea’s Basketball League

Former College of St. Benilde guard Migs Oczon is embarking on a new journey as he flies to South Korea on Friday, Dec. 29, for his upcoming debut for Ulsan Hyundai in the Korean Basketball League on New Year’s Eve.

Oczon is expected to make an impact for the Phoebus, who are set to clash against the Daegu KOGAS Pegasus on Sunday, Dec. 31. Ulsan is currently at sixth place with a 12-14 win-loss record while Daegu trails behind at 7-19.

The 23-year-old cager signed with the Korean club early this month as he replaced RJ Abarrientos, who is now playing at the Japan B.League with the Shinshu Brave Warriors. Oczon waived his two eligible playing years after the team’s third-place finish in the NCAA Season 99.

The former Blazer star led Benilde in scoring last season, averaging 13.7 points along with 4.7 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 18 games. Oczon will join fellow Filipino imports in Rhenz Abando (Anyang KGC), Juan Gomez de Liano (Seoul SK), Dave Ildefonso (Suwon KT), Calvin Epistola (Busan KCC), and Ethan Alvano (Wonju DB).
