Voice of Chooks 3×3 Sudan Daniel, 33, passes away

San Beda great and voice of Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 Sudan Daniel (December 17, 1987-December 26, 2020) has passed away, Saturday.

He was just 33 years old.

The American celebrated the holidays with twins Anthony and David Semerad in Calatagan, Batangas.

Daniel had an asthma attack Saturday that was the cause of death.

He was rushed to Calatagan Medicare Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.

Celebrated was the career of Daniel in San Beda, where he earned the nickname SUperman.

After Sam Ekwe, Daniel took the mantle of San Beda’s rock in NCAA Season 85, winning Rookie of the Year honors in the process.

Then in Season 86, the 6-foot-7 big man won both Most Valuable Player and Defensive Player of the Year honors, leading the Red Lions to an 18-0 sweep and the championship. He averaged 10.9 points, 11.4 rebounds, and 4.4 blocks per game that season.

He missed the following year due to an ACL tear.

After exhausting his playing years, Daniel remained in the country, being a skills coach for some of the country’s brightest prospects.

In 2019, Daniel became the master of ceremony for Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 together with Mike Swift. And the two created magic on the halfcourt, bringing life to the games with their wit, humor, and rhymes.

He is survived by one daughter.
