Nabbed as 7th overall pick in the 2012 PBA Rookie Draft, Tiu became an integral part of the Elasto Painters' championship run in the 2016 Commissioner's Cup.
In his final year, he transformed into one of Rain or Shine's go-to cogs and ended his PBA career on a high note by dropping a career-high 30 points. – Rappler.com
