Gabe Norwood recognized for playing 10 years for Gilas

MANILA, Philippines – A celebratory atmosphere followed SMART Gilas Pilipinas from the Araneta Coliseum to Barrio Fiesta at Ali Mall, where the team was feted following a tough win over Chinese-Taipei in the 2019 FIBA World Cup qualifiers on Monday night.

There, Bounty Agro Ventures Inc. president Ronald Mascariñas, one of the chief boosters of the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas, not only gave the players their allowances and incentives, but also honored two players who were exemplary both on and off the court.

The night's star was Gabe Norwood, who was given the first Chooks-to-Go loyalty award as he marked his 10th year of service to the national team program.

"It's humbling, very humbling," said the 6-foot-6 Norwood. "I can't believe it's been 10 years, right? It's just an honor to be a part of this team, part of this group."

Norwood averaged 7.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 3.5 assists during the first window of the qualifiers.
