For the 2017 FIBA 3X3 World Cup, the Philippines will be represented by what could be considered a dream team.
US prospect Kobe Paras, two-time UAAP MVP Kiefer Ravena, and multiple time champion Jeron Teng will be joining forces for flag and country in the tournament that will run from June 17 to 21 in Nantes, France.
According to FIBA, Far Eastern University workhorse Raymar Jose will be the fourth man for Team Philippines.
All four were called by FIBA as “rising stars.”
Just last year, Ravena and Teng also wore the flag in FIBA 3X3 All-Star competition.
The squad will be facing European champions Romania and Slovenia as well as host country France and El Salvador in Group B.
