Manganti to lead NorthPort 3×3 with Revilla, Cruz


Sean Manganti will be returning to his 3×3 roots.

The eighth overall pick in the 2019 PBA Rookie Draft was not part of NorthPort’s 15-man pool for its 5-on-5 team. Instead, he is expected to lead its 3×3 team this August.

“Nasa 3×3 namin siya kasama si Jervy (Cruz) at si LA (Revilla),” Northport 5-on-5 head coach Pido Jarencio told Tiebreaker Times.

Manganti, who stands at 6-foot-5, actually started his post-collegiate career in 3×3. He played with 1Bataan in the inaugural conference of Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3.

Last season, Manganti played in all 11 games in the Clark bubble. He normed 4.55 points, 2.91 rebounds, and 1.55 assists.

In 3×3, he joins several vets in Jervy Cruz and LA Revilla; along with 24th overall pick in the 2021 PBA Rookie Draft Mark Olayon.

For the Batang Pier’s 5-on-5 team, Robert Bolick will make his much-anticipated return from an ACL tear two years ago.

Joining him are Greg Slaughter, Jamie Malonzo, Troy Rike, Kevin Ferrer, Paolo Taha, Sidney Onwubere, Jerrick Balanza, Nico Elorde, Sean Anthony, Clint Doliguez, Garvo Lanete, Jeepy Faundo, and the returning Jonathan Grey.

Pido Jarencio’s team is looking to improve on its 1-10 outing in last year’s tournament. And their campaign will begin on Friday against Meralco.
