Bryan C. Faundo (born February 18, 1984 in Sison, Pangasinan) is a Filipino professional basketball player who currently plays for the Meralco Bolts in the Philippine Basketball Association.

College career[edit]

In the NCAA, he was one of the key players for the Letran Knights that helped the team win the 2005-06 Championship. While in Letran, Faundo was also teammates with future PBA players RJ Jazul and Rey Guevarra. Together, they led the Knights to another finals appearance in 2007, but lost to rivals San Beda Red Lions.

Professional career[edit]

Faundo was not drafted in 2009. He was signed by Barako Energy Coffee Masters. As a rookie, he played sparingly in 20 games. He averaged 1.9 points, 2.1 rebounds and 0.2 assists in 10.3 minutes.

On 2010, Faundo was signed by ASEAN Basketball League club Brunei Barracudas as an import for the 2010–11 ABL season.

He was signed by the Meralco Bolts to a six-month contract.[1]

On November 2012, Faundo was signed by Petron Blaze Boosters.

He was traded to Barangay Ginebra for Eric Menk.

Faundo was picked by expansion team Blackwater Elite ninth overall in the 2014 PBA Expansion Draft. With the Elite, he had his best season in the professional ranks, averaging career-highs in minutes (25.0 minutes per game), points (9.6 points per game), and rebounds (5.8 rebounds per game) and was one of the top five centers in the 2014–15 season based on player efficiency rating.[2][3]

Faundo was signed by the Meralco Bolts from Blackwater after his contract expired,[4] marking his return to the team since playing for them from 2011 to 2012.
