Xavier bat­tles top high schools in PSSBC

Philippine Daily Inquirer - - SPORTS -

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.
