Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas announced the departure of Mac Tallo, a talented and dedicated athlete who has made a remarkable impact on the world of 3×3 basketball.
While his heart is with 5-on-5 basketball, Tallo’s journey in 3×3 basketball has been nothing short of extraordinary.
Vice President of Chooks Inc. Mel Macasaquit expressed the organization’s heartfelt gratitude for Tallo’s invaluable contributions to Philippine 3×3 basketball.
“Chooks Pilipinas is grateful for the service Tallo has done for the country, including being the country’s number one-ranked 3×3 player. Tallo has exemplified the spirit of dedication, hard work, and passion that defines Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas,” said Macasaquit.
“Tallo’s transition to 3×3 basketball showcased his adaptability and resilience. His performances on the court have brought pride and inspiration to fans across the nation. Although he now embarks on a journey back to 5-on-5 basketball, we want to assure Mac that our unwavering support and cheers will always be with him.”
Tallo’s dedication and talent have left an indelible mark on Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas and the broader world of FIBA 3×3.
In his last exploits under Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas, the proud Cebuano led Manila Chooks! to a stunning win over world No. 12 Futian during the 2023 FIBA 3×3 World Tour Cebu Masters.
That moment inspired the remaining members of Manila Chooks!, who went on to stun world No. 3 Antwerp in the 2023 FIBA 3×3 Al Bidda Park Challenger on Tuesday evening.
As he returns to the world of 5-on-5 basketball, the Chooks family extends its best wishes to Mac, confident that he will continue to make waves and achieve great success in his future endeavors.
Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas wishes Mac Tallo the very best in all his future basketball pursuits and expresses profound gratitude for his significant contributions to the sport of 3×3 basketball.
