SBP holds biggest 3×3 games in Boys & Girls’ Town in Cebu

Cebu, Philippines – The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) tips-off its activities for
2019 multi 3×3 tournaments at the Sisters of Mary Boys’ and Girls’ Towns in Cebu that
promises to be a big event.
“This coming January 12 and 13, the SBP, together with Chooks-to-Go (CTG), is
holding the biggest 3×3 event in the country when participants from the Cebu Boys’ and
Girls’ Town simultaneously compete in 50 courts,” said federation Executive Director
Renauld “Sonny” Barrios.
Added Cebu native Ryan Betia, who is part of the SBP’s Coaches Commission and is a
former assistant in the Gilas program, “This is the first Fiba-like event that will be held in
Cebu and people are very excited. As of now, kahit mga 3,100 participants na, marami
pa tumatawag kung puwede sumali. Kahit siguradong traffic, people will go not only to
participate, but also to watch.”
Added Barrios, “It is a massive undertaking and we will not be able to pull this off
without the help of Regional Director Rico Navarro of Region 7, and Jerry Abubayor,
Regional Director for Region 6, as well as the support of the Sisters of Mary nuns who
operate the Boys’ and Girls’ Towns.”
“When you hear Cebuanos talk about this SBP 3×3 event, they are honored because
the federation chose to hold this in our area,” glowed a proud Betia. “We, of course,
have to thank Chooks to Go, SBP President Al Panlilio, and Sir Sonny Barrios for
making all this possible.”
The games which will be day-long will be held at the Boys’ Town on January 12 and at
the Girls’ Town on January 13, 2019.
