SBP-XI holds 3on3 Regl. Elims

Davao City – The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) Region XI chapter will holds its 3-on-3 Basketball Regional Eliminations set this September 22 and 23.

“We’re still finalizing the venue. Probably, it will be held in a mall, this year,” said SBP-XI regional operations head Ronel Leuterio in yesterday’s Davao Sportswriters Association (DSA) Forum at the SM City Davao.

The two-day tournament will feature boys and girls division ages 16 years-old and under. Some 30 teams are expected to see action in the boys division while 15 to 20 squads are seen the join the distaff side.

“Registration is free. Plus we will be giving away jerseys to all the participating teams,” said Leuterio adding that cash prizes and an all-expense paid trip to the national finals will be up for grabs to the winners.

The champion team will get P10,000 while the second and third placers will receive P3,000 and P2,000, respectively.

Davao City made its mark in last year’s national finals with Cabantian National High winning the girls division.

Aside from the 3-on-3 regional eliminations, the SBP-XI will also come up with a Coaches Clinic on September 29-30.

More than 200 participants are expected to join the two-day clinic with no less than National Cadets coach Jong Uchico as guest speaker.

“It will be free to all coaches on a first come, first serve basis,” Leuterio said.
