Chooks-to-Go is fielding two teams in the 2019 Hongxiang Holdings Group Haining Challenger in China this weekend.
Balanga Chooks and Isabela City Chooks (Phenom-Basilan Steel) are set to compete in the level 9-FIBA tournament that is the qualifier for the Montreal Masters.
“We were only invited to the tournament with just one-week notice. But we need to join this tournament to continue to gather more points for the country,” said Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 league owner Ronald Mascariñas, who extended his gratitude to the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas.
“Rest assured that the teams are preparing hard and will give their best in representing the country,” added Chooks 3×3 league commissioner Eric Altamirano.
The Philippines is currently ranked No. 34 in the men’s division.
Alvin Pasaol, Karl Dehesa, Chris De Chavez, and Travis Franklin will comprise Balanga while Roosevelt Adams, Franky Johnson, Marcus Hammonds and Gab Banal will spearhead Isabela.
Banal was tapped as a guest player as Troy Rike is currently registered to play for Pasig in the FIBA 3×3 circuit.
