Pasig Kings, 1Bataan Risers to face Asia Pacific’s 10 best teams in Super Quest

Twelve of the region’s top 3×3 basketball clubs will collide this weekend for the first-ever International Basketball Federation (FIBA)-sanctioned Super Quest.

From April 6 to 7 at the SM Megamall Fashion Hall, teams from Mongolia (no. 2 in the world), China (no. 3), Japan (no. 4), Indonesia (no. 15), Australia (no. 25), New Zealand (no. 29), South Korea (no. 42), Chinese Taipei (no. 60), Vietnam (no. 65), and Hong Kong (no. 79) have already confirmed for the Chooks-to-Go 3×3 Asia Pacific Super Quest.

Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3, the Philippines’ first 3×3 basketball league, was tasked to host the level-eight event last February 19, that will further boost the country’s world 3×3 rankings.

“After last year’s success of the FIBA 3×3 World Cup organized by SBP, the initiative of Chooks-to-go to set up a tournament with international teams from Asia-Pacific qualifying to the FIBA 3×3 World Tour is excellent news. It underpins the effort of Chooks-to-go in organizing dozens of local 3×3 events and will accelerate the development of 3×3 in the Philippines,” said FIBA 3×3 Managing Director Alex Sanchez, who will grace the two-day event.

“We are looking for tangible ways for the country to find its way to the Olympic Qualifying Tournaments. I know it’s hard at this point but we will try everything,” said Chooks-to-Go President Ronald Mascariñas. “We are happy to be chosen to host the first-ever Super Quest.”

Representing the Philippines are President’s Cup champions Pasig Grindhouse Kings and runners-up 1Bataan Risers.

The two top-flight Philippine squads will go up against Ulaanbataar of Mongolia, Enerskin of the Korea 3×3 Basketball League, the Saigon Aces of Vietnam, Absolute 3X3 Basketball of Taipei, the Jakarta West Bandits of Indonesia, Tokyo Dime.exe of Japan, TSV Reading Cinema of Australia, Aotearoa of New Zealand, Anytours M1 of Hong Kong, and SSLC of China.

The runners-up will also head to the Doha tournament while pocketing USD 15,000. The third and fourth place finishers will qualify for the Challenger Series in Kunshan from May 18 to 19 with the former also banking USD 7,000 while the latter being rewarded with USD 4,000 for their effort.

The fifth to eighth placed teams will be given USD 1,000 as consolation.

“With the Super Quest, we want to show the region that we can compete with the world’s best in 3×3 basketball,” shared league commissioner Eric Altamirano.
