After going on a punching binge during their game against College of Saint Benilde, Amores was given an indefinite NCAA suspension. Amores was given an indefinite ban and kicked out of the JRU’s athletic department after punching numerous St. Benilde players on November 8.

After the forward averaged 9.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.2 assists in 13 games prior to the punching incident, Zamboanga believes Amores will be a tremendous asset to their team. It’s interesting to note that the team’s name was Zamboanga Amores back in Liga Pilipinas, based on their Facebook post.

“Before we became Valientes, our monicker was Amores in Liga Pilipinas. Amores is love so we believe he can be a changed man this time especially he will be with the Zamboanguenos. It’s okay to be brave as long as you do it in the right way,” Navarro said.

“I think he will help our team especially in defense and outside shooting. We are looking forward to the rise of Amores with the Valientes,” said Natividad.
