Red Lions head to Miami

The preparation of the San Beda University Red Lions for their upcoming title-retention bid continues

After joining the 29th Dubai International Basketball Tournament last January, the reigning NCAA Seniors Basketball kings are set to fly out of the country once again. This time, they are set to begin their training in Miami, Florida under renowned trainer Coach Ganon Baker.

And after having a brief session with Baker in Manila, the team’s management knew right then and there that they have to experience a full set under him.

“Coach Ganon did one training session with us in Manila and we liked it.

“His camp in Florida is considered among the best in the world, and a favourite of NBA hopefuls,” shared San Beda team manager Jude Roque.

This is the first time the Red Lions to join this program. Back in 2014, they went to Lithuania while in the last two years, they trained in Las Vegas, Nevada under Joe Abunassar.

Though their training with Impact Basketball bore fruit as it resulted to championships, Roque and the team’s staff wanted to experience something new for their young student-athletes. In addition, besides to the basketball skills they will get to gain, Baker also preaches the importance of leadership and brotherhood both on and off the court.

“Boss MVP [Manny V. Pangilinan] wanted us to do something different this year,” disclosed head coach Boyet Fernandez. “We trained in Las Vegas during the last two years but this time, we wanted them to experience something new para maiba naman.”

“It’s also a chance to see a new city and experience it’s culture,” added Roque.
