RP-SEABA tryouts

Rate this Entry
The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas will be holding tryouts starting tomorrow at the Brent School gym in Pasig for the national team that will see action in the Southeast Asian Basketball Association (SEABA) qualifying tournament from June 24-30 in Singapore.

This was announced by SBP Executive Director Renauld ‘Sonnie’ Barrios who wrote top management of NCAA and UAAP, the country’s premier collegiate leagues, to seek their “wholehearted support” in the formation of the national team.

Coached by former PBA star Olsen Racela, the RP-SEABA team will vie for a slot to the 22nd FIBA Asia U18 Championship for Men from Aug. 17-26 in Ulaan Bataar, Mongolia.

In letters addressed to Rev. Fr. Tamerlane Lana O.P., rector and president of Colegio de San Juan de Letran, and 2012 chairman Junel Baculi of National University, Barrios bared plans of the RP coaching staff to tap some players from both leagues for the 24-man national pool.

“This will be submitted to FIBA Asian on or before May 24 before it is trimmed down to the Final 12 on or before June 10,” Barrios said.

At least 40-45 players are expected to attend Day 1 of the tryouts, with ULTRA, also in Pasig, as an alternate venue.
