Isaac Go and Donald Tankoua came up big when it mattered most for Ateneo and San Beda, respectively
Coming up big for their respective teams in last season’s Finals, Isaac Go and Donald Tankoua are set to be feted in the 2018 Chooks-to-Go Collegiate Basketball Awards on Thursday night at The Bayleaf Hotel in Intramuros.
The two big men are set to receive this year’s Pivotal Player awards, which honors distinguished individuals who were crucial in their team’s drive to the championship, in the ceremony supported by Chooks-to-Go and The Bayleaf Intramuros.
The unassuming Go showed his fangs when it mattered most for Ateneo, hitting the big shots which paved the way for the Blue Eagles to win the UAAP Season 80 crown and end their five-year title drought.
Meanwhile, Cameroonian Tankoua was a force to be reckoned with for San Beda as his dominating presence inside the paint secured for the Red Lions their back-to-back titles this past NCAA Season 93.
Also to be handed out in the night of glitz and glamour hosted by the UAAP-NCAA Press Corps are the Player of the Year, Mythical Five, and Breakout Player.
