    NEARLY 1,000 young basketball players participated in the first Regional Selection Camp of Jr. NBA Philippines 2019 presented by Alaska at the Manuel Enverga University Foundation in Lucena City on March 9-10.

They will be members of the 40-boy and 40-girl-participant pool that will fill the roster through the four remaining Regional Selection Camps and a select group from the Alaska Power Camp.

    The athletes demonstrated a proficiency in fundamental skills and embodied the core values of the game through the two-day camp and are set to compete among talented athletes nationwide for the Jr. NBA All-Star selection. Jr. NBA Philippines All-Stars—comprised of as many as five boys and five girls—will advance to the first Jr. NBA Global Championship Asia Pacific Qualifiers, a week-long selection camp in June that includes top youth players from Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
