Nine players will be sharing a reward totaling PHP 2M
For putting up a valiant stand in the recently-concluded 2019 Chooks-to-Go 3x3 Asia Pacific Super Quest, all the players of 1Bataan and Pasig Grindhouse were given a "personal gift" by the tournament's backer.
The amount totaling PHP 2, 000, 000 were shared by the 1Bataan quartet of the Philippines' no. 4 player Alvin Pasaol, no. 5 Santi Santillan, no. 10 Karl Dehesa, and American import Travis Franklin and the Pasig quintet of no. 1 Joshua Munzon, no. 2 Taylor Statham, no. 3 Troy Rike, no. 12 Dylan Ababou, and Serbian reinforcement Nikola Pavlovic.
"As a gesture of gratitude to the players, we are giving the players of both teams a little gift," Chooks-to-Go president Ronald Mascariñas said. "Thank you for serving your country."
The players are only grateful for this bonus as 1Bataan and Pasig already received USD 15, 000 and USD 7, 000 as prizes for making it to the final and semifinal, respectively.
"We were surprised," shared.Munzon. "None of us expected this."
"Malaking bagay ito sa amin kasi napapakita namin na hindi lang sa five-on-five ang future ng basketball player," opined Pasaol.
Pasig Chooks and Balanga Chooks (1Bataan) now have their sights set on shocking the world come April 18 to 19 in Doha.
