Quotes:

Henjz Gabriel Demisana
“Basketball has given me many opportunities with one of them being able to play in the Jr. NBA program.  I’m very proud to join the Asia Pacific team competing in the Jr. NBA Global Championship.”

Diane Camille Nolasco
“When I first saw my opponents, I didn’t expect to be here since they’re so tall, but I brought the Filipino mentality ‘puso’ which helped achieve my goal of being part of the Jr. NBA Asia Pacific girls team.”

Sebastian Roy Reyes
“I’m excited for the competition in the United States because it will be a lot harder than in Asia.  Representing the Philippines is a big deal for myself because not all kids have an opportunity to play for their country.”

Lionel Matthew Rubico
“My coaches always reminded to go hard to the basket, not be afraid, believe in myself, and fight with all my heart.  I’m looking forward to meeting new friends and challenging the talented players from around the world.”
