3x3 Basketball

Davon Potts, Aris Dionisio load up Phenom-Basilan for Magiting Cup

Locals take center stage once again as the Philippines makes its last push to earn a qualification in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3, together with partner Coca-Cola, unfurls its Magiting Cup, with the first leg set on Sunday at SM Clark in Pampanga.

Twelve teams are out for the crown in this FIBA Quest-level tournament, which has five legs again.

President’s Cup champion Equalivet Pasig get a much-needed facelift with top Filipino 3×3 player Joshua Munzon and Philippines’ no. 6 Dylan Ababou, alongside Leo de Vera and Travis Thompson.

Patriot’s Cup titlists Basilan Phenom CTC Construction, meanwhile, are aiming for back-to-back titles with Philippines no. 3 Franky Johnson now set to team up with Aris Dionisio and Davon Potts.

Perennial contender Wilkins Balanga are also hell-bent on finally breaking through, bringing back a potent core made up of world no. 122 Alvin Pasaol, Karl Dehesa, Santi Santillan, and Chris De Chavez.

Making their return for this conference are Zamboanga Valientes MLV (Jonathan Parreno, Das Esa, Jon Rebollos, and Mark Tano); Uling Roaster – Gulf Supreme Boosters Bulacan (Clarence Graham, Kobe Caronongan, Louis Montes, and Nelson Mendoza Jr.); Sogo Vigan (Christian Singson, Jan Jamon, Paulo Hubalde, and Jojo Cunanan); Thunder-Gold’s Gym Taguig (Inigo Arellano, Aurelio Opena Norberte Jr., Mark Anthony Taylor, and Geno Anderson); and Mindoro Tamaraws 7A (Francis Nathaniel Acedillo, Jay Remon Axalan, Luigi Natada, and Rodel Vaygan).

Five new teams will also get their feet wet in the first leg, namely J&J Pateros (Ervin Flores, RJ Deles, Kiddo Cabrera, and Rob Ricafort); Bicol Volcanoes (Andro Quinday, EJ Canelas, Mark Atabay, and Aldrianne Anglim); Partas Narvacan (Dan Reducto, Gian Abrigo, AJ Asis, and Pari Llagas); and Fyr Fyter Bacolod (Raymund Ilagan, Mark Yee, Mark dela Cruz, and Louie Medalla).
