Gilas Pilipinas: LA Tenorio
Get to know LA Tenorio of the Gilas Pilipinas national men's basketball team.

LA Tenorio is almost always the shortest man on the court, but he is a proven leader who knows when to pile up the points or dish off to get teammates going. 

After graduating from Ateneo de Manila University, Tenorio, 30, of Batangas was selected fourth by the San Miguel Beermen in 2006, where he played until being traded to the Alaska Aces in 2008. Tenorio now calls the shots for Barangay Ginebra, where he was traded in 2012.

He was named 2012 Jones Cup MVP as he scored 20 points to lead the Philippine team past USA select team to win the tournament for the first time since 1998. Tenorio also led Ginebra to a runner-up finish in the 2013 PBA Commissioner’s Cup after Mark Caguioa went down with a knee injury.

Tenorio is no doubt one of the top point guards in the Philippines. He can get his teammates going with his passing ability but is also not shy to take and make shots if necessary. His toughest challenge will be defending the bigger guards of opposing teams. –
