San Beda Red Lions, Amsali head to Las Vegas

In preparation for the upcoming NCAA Season 95 Seniors Basketball tournament, defending champions San Beda University Red Lions will undergo a camp under famed coach Joe Abunassar’s Impact Basketball.

But this time around, they won’t be headed to Florida. Instead, they will be going to Las Vegas.

This is because of the multiple leagues they joined for the pre-season.

“Due to the shorter training time compared to last year, we decided to return to Joe Abunassar’s Impact Center in Vegas, where it is more convenient to travel to, and much easier logistically,” said team manager Jude Roque.

Currently, the Red Lions are in the D-League and the Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup.

“We have games in the D-League and Filoil, so we can only stay fifteen days max in the US compared to eighteen last year,” he continued.

Sixteen Red Lions made the trip to the US last Saturday – namely Donald Tankoua, Calvin Oftana, AC Soberano, Clint Doliguez, Evan Nelle, James Canlas, Arnaud Noah, Kemark Carino, JB Bahio, Peter Alfaro, Damie Cuntapay, Ain Obenza, Prince Etrata, Franz Abuda, Ralph Penuela, and Alex Visser.

Red Cub Rhayyan Amsali will also join the seniors’ squad.

Besides being in a different location, head coach Boyet Fernandez disclosed that they will also have a different program compared to last year.

“We requested for a different kind of program that will hopefully help us for the NCAA.”
