JOLLO Go tries to help lift Hope Christian High School to a podium finish one last time before he moves to La Salle in the UAAP.

The 18-year-old Go plays on Sunday in the battle-for-third against Ateneo Team B in the Metro Manila Basketball League, his final game for Hope Christian before joining the Green Archers.

Reigning NBTC titlist Chiang Kai Shek College battles NCAA champion San Beda College in the championship game.

Even though they are no longer in contention for the MMBL title, Go said he is determined to give the school one trophy before he calls it a high school career with Hope Christian, which he helped win a Tiong Lian title in 2013.

Go also played for the Philippine national youth team dubbed Batang Gilas in the Fiba Under-17 World Championship.

“Nag-te-training pa po ako sa kanila dahil gusto ko pa makuha 'yung third place para kahit papaano, may place pa rin po kami," the former national youth team standout told

CKSC is already qualified for the NBTC League to be played during the summer against the champion teams nationwide. But the Blue Dragons aim to successfully defend the MMBL crown against the Red Cubs.
