Akhuetie doubtful for Chooks-to-Go in FIBA Asia Champions Cup

MANILA, Philippines — The Chooks-to-Go national basketball team set to see action in the FIBA Asia Champions Cup has found themselves in a dreary situation with Bright Akhuetie.

Tapped as an import, the Nigerian was initially set to play alongside a crop of the country’s top prospects in Kiefer Ravena and Jeron Teng with pros Norbert Torres and Alfrancis Tamsi in the tournament in Chenzhou, China.

"We're still checking out e, because there's an uncertainty kay Bright Akhuetie regarding his eligibility. It might affect his UAAP residency,” head coach Chot Reyes said after the team’s practice on Thursday night.

 “We’re bringing in Rod Ebondo to be a back-up import for us,” the longtime Gilas mentor said.

Akhuetie played for the University of Perpetual Help in the NCAA and was also twice named a member of the Mythical Team. He is now serving a redshirt year in hopes of playing for the University of the Philippines in the UAAP.
