Perkins leads NLEX-SCTEX team in Merlion Cup

After winning back-to-back titles in the recently-concluded 2017 PBA D-League season, the core of the Cignal HD looks to make one more run for the crown.

Playing under the banner of NLEX-SCTEX, the Hawkeyes will represent the Philippines in the 2017 Merlion Cup in Singapore later this month.

PBA draft entrant Jason Perkins headlines the roster as he will be backstopped by veterans Pamboy Raymundo and Oping Sumalinog in the seven-team tournament set from September 20 to 24 at OCBC Arena in Singapore.

Road Warriors assistant coach Jojo Lastimosa will call the shots for the Philippine team in the invitational.

Also joining NLEX-SCTEX are Cignal’s Jaypee Belencion, Byron Villarias, Alfred Batino, Andreas Cahilig, and Harold Arboleda, as well as former SCTEX players AJ Vitug and Mark Pangilinan from the defunct PCBL.
