    Kwekuteye led the Red Lions to the NCAA Season 98 seniors basketball Final Four, posting 15.4 points on 29-percent shooting from deep 6.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.4 steals to earn a spot in the Mythical Team.

    The Fil-Canadian scorer joins fellow Red Lion Kemark Carino with the Valientes.

    Carino had a brief stint with Pegasus Brunei in Malaysia.

      The Zamboanga lineup also has controversial Jose Rizal University forward John Amores.


      Former Terrafirma import Antonio Hester is expected to lead the squad together with old reliables Reed Juntilla, Gino Jumao-as, and Das Esa.

      The ABL Invitational tips off on Jan. 2 in Singapore.
