Chooks-to-Go set to honor top UAAP-NCAA student-athletes

Before the collegiate wars commence anew, the UAAP-NCAA Press Corps is set to honor the heroes of the past season in the 2018 Chooks-to-Go Collegiate Basketball Awards.

The group, made up of scribes from print and online outfits covering the beat, are set to distinguish the best players from last year when they hold the annual awards night on Thursday, June 21, at The Bayleaf Hotel in Intramuros.

Set to be awarded are standouts from the championship teams of San Beda Red Lions in the NCAA and the Ateneo Blue Eagles in the UAAP.

But the trophies aren’t just limited to them as the group will also hand out special awards to the breakout performers of this past season in the event sponsored by Chooks-to-Go, ang Nag-iisang Manok ng Bayan, and The Bayleaf Intramuros.

The Red Lions, led by Robert Bolick and coached by Boyet Fernandez, were crowned as the NCAA Season 93 Seniors Basketball champion in 2017, copping the league’s crown for the 10th time over the last 12 seasons.

The Blue Eagles, mentored by Tab Baldwin, captured the UAAP Season 80 Men’s Basketball title last year after beating La Salle in a thrilling championship series with Thirdy Ravena capturing the finals Most Valuable Player.

Both teams are also expected to figure prominently in the title chase for the coming season of their mother leagues.
