Gabi Bade signs with Cypriot club ENAD WBC


Another Filipino will take their pro basketball career to Europe. 

Gilas Pilipinas Women’s guard Gabi Bade has signed a one-year deal to play for ENAD WBC – a club that competes in Cyprus Women’s Basketball Division A.

Her agency Flash made the announcement, Monday afternoon.

“Flash Agency would like to congratulate Gabi and wish her all the best with her new team,” said the agency’s statement.

Bade, the daughter of former Shell player Cris Bade, played college ball in Division I schools University of Buffalo and Sacramento State.

In 2019, she suited up for Gilas Women in the 2019 Jones Cup. The 24-year-old, 5-foot-8 guard averaged 4.0 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per game.

Bade was not able to obtain her Philippine passport before the age of 16, however. This makes her a naturalized player for Gilas in FIBA-sanctioned competitions.

She joins a storied ENAD team that is based in Ayios Dometios, Nicosia.

Last season, ENAD finished in sixth place in the elimination round with a 3-9 slate. But they managed to stun third-ranked team Etha in the quarters, before bowing to eventual second-placers AEL in the semis.
