DOHA (FIBA 3x3 All Stars) – Rey Guevarra will captain the Manila team, which will compete in the FIBA 3x3 All Stars in Doha, Qatar on 18 November.
The 29-year-old Guevarra is no stranger to the 3x3 game. He and Terrence Romeo combined to bring Team Manila West to victory at the 2014 FIBA 3x3 World Tour Manila Masters.
He also showcased his athleticism by beating 2015 TNT Dunk King Porter Maberry at the 2015 Manila Masters Dunk Contest.
Guevarra will be joined by some of Philippines’ most promising rising stars, including CJ Perez, Sidney Onwubere and Bright Akhuetie.
Akhuetie made noise last year in an exhibition game at the 3x3 All Stars by unleashing the poster dunk of the season.
Team Manila will start their All Stars campaign with a difficult quarter-final against Novi Sad Al Wahda (UAE), which are led by number one 3x3 player in the world Dusan Domovic Bulut.
