Fil-Am Domingo definitely coming back to Philippines

I'M COMING HOME. Lo Domingo will fly to the US to visit his family there, but will return to the Philippines to keep playing Filipino ball.
The gas ran out for Alab Pilipinas before they even got going in the 2016-2017 Asean Basketball League – but it was a positive maiden season, nonetheless.
Of course, Ray Parks Jr. starred throughout the elimination round while Kiefer Ravena shined in his only two games which came in the semifinals.
Aside from those usual suspects, it was Lo Domingo who turned out to be a revelation.
Through the tournament, the Filipino-American from New Mexico exhibited a non-stop motor that allowed him to impose his will down-low. An undersized forward at only six-foot-five, he was still able to average 12.5 points and 6.5 rebounds.
This, all while also proving to be a more than capable defender – matching up well against the likes of Xavier Alexander and Lenny Daniel.
Now that their ABL run is over, Domingo admitted that he has his eyes set on Asia’s first pay-for-play league. “I need to talk to my agent to see what my next move is because I still need to finish some paperwork before I can make my way into the PBA,” he shared.
He then continued, “But that is definitely something I want to do.”
At the same time, the 23-year-old also isn’t counting out another go-round with Alab. “If it’s still in the works, hopefully, I can be back for another season with Alab,” he expressed.
Wherever he ends up taking his talents to next, Domingo is certain that he will be returning to his homeland. “Either way, I’m coming back to the PI (Philippines),” he said.
