Isaiah Austin vows to work on his game after Chooks-to-Go stint

Naturalization candidate Isaiah Austin said that he learned a lot from his stint with Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas in the recently concluded FIBA Asia Champions Cup in China.

The 7’1″ Austin had an impressive stint with the squad, averaging 20 points, 13 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 3.1 blocks to lead Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas to a surprising fifth place finish.

The former NBA prospect said he’ll work hard to improve his game to be a better fit in coach Chot Reyes’ dribble drive offense.

“I didn’t do much of rebounding and going coast-to-coast but that’s what I would do in the future. That’s what I developed in this tournament in China. When I go home, I’m gonna take some time off and work on my game,” Austin said via Sports5’s Volta Delos Santos.

“As for the dribble drive, this is how I play basketball. I’m a stretch five and I like to stretch the floor and put the ball in the rim.”

Austin relished the opportunity to play for the Philippines on the international stage, and he’s hoping to don the national team colors for the years to come.
