Coming off a second place finish in the ASEAN Basketball League, six cagers from the Singapore Slingers squad will next lead their country’s charge in the SEABA Championships 2017 opening shop on Friday, May 12, at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.
Slingers’ veterans Wong Wei Long, Jing Lung John Ng, Han Bin Ng, Leon Kwek, Delvin Goh, and Larry Liew will lead the Singaporeans in their bid to claim the regional tournament’s crown and book the sole spot in the FIBA-Asia Cup.
Completing the squad are Jun Yuan Lim, Johrathon Cheok, Lyon Chia, Justin Lim, Lavin Raj, and Chin Hong Tan.
The Singaporeans have yet to taste gold or silver in the Southeast Asian cagefest, as their only achievements so far are three bronze medals, which they garnered back in 2001, 2013, and in 2015.
Franco Arsego will call the shots for the national squad.
