Xavier battles top high schools in PSSBC
Speed and outside shooting are the weapons the Xavier School Golden Stallions intend to unleash when they see action in the Philippine Secondary Schools Basketball Championship (PSSBC) Rain or Shine Elastopaint Cup starting Dec. 15 at the SGS Stadium in Quezon City.
“Our shooting and speed are our assets so we hope we can use those in the PSSBC, said coach Miguel Chan, who is delighted to be given the opportunity to see his boys compete against some of the finest high school teams in the country.
Chan said the team’s success depends largely on how shooter Ryan Yu and Batang Gilas center Miguel Tan perform in a tough level tournament. “They are proven scorers,” said Chan. Tan stands at 6-foot-5 but is deadly from afar.
