After nine years, Teng brothers are teammates anew

MANILA, Philippines – Nine years after they last wore the same uniform for Xavier School, brothers Jeric and Jeron Teng find themselves in the same team once again.

Both Jeron and Jeric were included in the 12-man line-up of the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas team that will represent the country in the 2017 FIBA Asia Champions Cup in Chenzhou, China, nine years after they last played together in the Tiong Lian high school tournament.

"Very excited lang ako," said Jeron. "It's the first time we're playing for the same team since high school."

"Sobrang excited ako to share the same court with Jeron ulit," Jeric echoed. "First time kami magkakasama ulit."

The Teng brothers have traveled down different paths since they last played together for Xavier in 2008, with Jeric playing for University of Santo Tomas, and Jeron taking his talents to De La Salle University. They memorably faced off in the UAAP Season 76 Finals, with Jeron leading the Green Archers to victory over Jeric and the Growling Tigers for the first of two collegiate titles.
