After back-to-back defeats to the tournament favorites, Chooks-to-Go has been relegated to the classification round of the 2017 FIBA Asia Champions Cup.

Team Pilipinas starts its journey to salvage fifth place against Shabab Al Ahli-Dubai Friday in Chenzhou, looking to bounce back after a demoralizing loss to defending champion China Kashgar in the quarterfinals.

That loss came immediately after Chooks-to-Go received a beating at the hands of Iran's Petrochimi to end group play.

As usual, head coach Chot Reyes will have import Isaiah Austin and Kiefer Ravena leading the charge as Chooks-Pilipinas starts the consolation round.

Gametime against Dubai will be on Friday ay 2:30 p.m. (PHL time).
