The top eight 3×3 players in the country are all part Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 after the 2022 FIBA 3×3 World Tour Manila Masters.
Cebu Chooks’ Mac Tallo retained his spot as the country’s ace 3×3 player while also rising to no. 72 in the world with 149,120 points. This is the highest position a Filipino has notched in the World Tour era since former Pasig Chooks player Joshua Munzon placed 92 during the fourth week of May, 2019.
Cebu’s Zach Huang (no. 114, 98,941 pts), Manila’s Chico Lanete (no. 139, 86,612), Manila’s Dennis Santos (no. 163, 75,817), Cebu’s Brandon Ramirez (no. 191, 66,722), Manila’s Mark Yee (no. 303, 41,515), Manila’s Ken Holmqvist (no. 435, 27,000), and Manila’s Ron Dennison (no. 785, 17,160) complete the top eight.
With this development, Chooks-to-Go is looking to add more players to their pool. Those players will join Manila and Cebu Chooks in the FIBA 3×3 pro circuit.
“We are looking to add more players who will fit Coach Aldin Ayo’s system so that we can fill up the top 25 slots in the country,” said Ronald Mascariñas.
“We are pleased with the developments of our program,” added Ayo.
“This is just the start and we are hoping that the players continue to embrace not just our system but also this sport.”
