Ex-Tamaraw Tamsi stunned to be included in Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas

MANILA, Philippines – Former Far Eastern University (FEU) guard Alfrancis Tamsi did not deny that he was surprised to be included in the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas team that will be competing in the 2017 FIBA Asia Champions Cup in China starting on September 22.

After all, Tamsi has had a relatively quiet professional career after helping FEU win the UAAP Season 78 men's basketball title. He was taken in the third round of the 2016 PBA Draft by GlobalPort, but is now a practice player for TNT KaTropa.

He never expected to make it to the 12-man roster of Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas, as he only showed up to the team's training sessions at the Meralco Gym as a practice player.

"Pumunta lang ako kasi inimbitahan ako ni Coach Josh (Reyes)," Tamsi revealed Tuesday, when the squad's line-up was finally revealed. "Sabi niya lang, i-ready ko ang passport ko, kaya ayun, ginawa ko naman."

"Unexpected na makukuha ako," he admitted.
