Dave Ildefonso continues the youth movement for Mighty Sports-Pilipinas in the oncoming 2020 Dubai International Basketball Tournament.
Ildefonso is the latest young gun to squad up with the Philippine representatives in the invitational tourney tipping off on January 23.
"This tournament will give him some good experience against professional players and even imports at his position. I know he has dreams of maybe playing internationally one day so this is a good start for him at such a young age," Mighty-Pilipinas head coach Charles Tiu said.
The National University standout joins forces with 7-foot-2, 17-year-old Kai Sotto and Gomez de Liano brothers Javi and Juan as well as American reinforcement Andray Blatche for the side, also backed by Go for Gold and Emedsure, that is nothing but determined to improve on its third-place finish from a year ago.
