Coming up big for their respective teams in last season’s Collegiate Basketball Finals, Isaac Go and Donald Tankoua are set to be feted in the 2018 Chooks-to-Go Collegiate Basketball Awards on Thursday night at The Bayleaf Hotel in Intramuros.
The two big men are set to receive this year’s Pivotal Player awards, which honors distinguished individuals who were crucial in their team’s drive to the championship, in the ceremony supported by Chooks-to-Go and The Bayleaf Intramuros.
The unassuming Go, who is a member of the 23 for 2023 Gilas Cadets, showed his fangs when it mattered most for the Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles, hitting the big shots which paved the way for the Blue Eagles to win the UAAP Season 80 Men’s Basketball crown and end their five-year title drought.
Meanwhile, Cameroonian student-athlete Tankoua was a force to be reckoned with for the San Beda University Red Lions, as his dominating presence inside the paint secured the Red Lions their back-to-back titles this past NCAA Season 93 Seniors Basketball tournament.
Also to be handed out in the night of glitz and glamor hosted by the UAAP-NCAA Press Corps are the Chooks-to-Go Player of the Year, Mythical Five, and Breakout Player.
