Mike Nzeusseu to reinforce Manila in Chooks 3×3 Invitational


Seven imports will play for six teams that will compete in the special one-day Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas Invitational on Wednesday at the Laus Events Center in San Fernando, Pampanga.

Headlining the foreign players is HeiHei Manila’s two-time NCAA All-Defensive team member Mike Nzeusseu. The 6-foot-6 Cameroonian will join Chico Lanete, Zach Huang, and Mac Tallo.2019-Chooks-3x3-Patriots-Cup-Pateros-Chibueze-Ikeh Mike Nzeusseu to reinforce Manila in Chooks 3x3 Invitational 3x3 Basketball Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3 News  - philippine sports news

Returning to the league is 6-foot-7 Cameroonian Chibueze Ikeh. Ikeh, who previously played for Inoza Bulacan in the 2019 Patriot’s Cup, will reinforce Essen Immunoboost Sarangani — a team that has Ronjay Buenafe, Paul Sanga, and Donald Gumaru.2019-Chooks-3x3-Patriots-Cup-Cebu-Henry-Iloka Mike Nzeusseu to reinforce Manila in Chooks 3x3 Invitational 3x3 Basketball Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3 News  - philippine sports news

Another returnee to the league is 6-foot-7 Cameroonian Frederick Elombi, who played for Max4-Birada Cebu back in 2019 as well. Elombi will be joined by fellow Cameroonian Landry Sanjo, Monbert Arong, and Ralph Dinolan in ARQ Builders-Cebu.

The other imports are Cameroonian Hamadou Laminou (BRT Sumisip-Basilan), Nigerian Henry Iloka (RBR Cabiao Nueva Ecija), and Eugene Toba (Pasig Kingpins).

“We opened up the one-day Invitational tournament that we have to imports for the sole reason that these former student-athletes have not played for such a long time and have been stranded in our country since the pandemic,” said Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 league owner Ronald Mascariñas.

“This will also help our local players in adjusting to the global FIBA 3×3 game as there are a lot of skilled 6-foot-6 and above players in those competitions,” he added.

Basilan will also have Junjie Hallare, Shaq Alanes, and Darwin Lunor; Nueva Ecija has Ian Dela Torre, Ichie Altamirano, and King Importante; while Pasig features Ryan and Nikki Monteclaro along with Jaypee Belencion.

Zamboanga will have an all-homegrown team in Paulino Rebollos, David Sebastian, Gino Jumao-as, and Alex Mohammad. The Valientes have yet to miss a Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 tournament.

Bocaue will have Dennis Santos, Mark Yee, Ralph Tansingco, and Jayvee Marcelino while Bacolod will be composed of JK Casino, Cyrus Tabi, Joseph Eriobu, and Jayjay Manlangit.

Pasay has Jan Jamon, Elvin Chan, Jerome Pasia, and Agosto Flor; Mandaluyong has Michael Macaballug, Janus Lozada, Martin Gozum, and Marvin Hayes; while Quezon City has Jerome Garcia, Mon Mabayo, John Amboludto, and Joseph Peñaredondo.
