Encho Serrano continues to make a name for himself – this time, even in the FIBA 3X3 Under-18 Championship.
Along with being a key cog for quarterfinalist Philippines, the 17-year-old has also been competing, and thriving, in the Dunk Contest of the tournament set in Chengdu, China.
High-flying Serrano scored 48 in the preliminary round last Friday to wind up in second-place.
That was more than enough to catapult him into the semifinals where the five-foot-11 swingman will face off against Chinese Haonan Li, Belgian Vincent Peeters, and Slovenian Matej Susec.
The Dunk Contest semifinals, as well as the main tournament playoffs, is scheduled for Sunday.
