    Fielding a team of new faces, Manila Chooks TM, composed of 5v5 veteran Chico Lanete, scorer Mac Tallo, post-creator Zachy Huang, and stretch big Dennis Santos, is slotted with Austria’s Graz, who they will square off on Friday at 7:30 p.m. (Manila time), and home team Doha, who they will face on the same day at 8:05 p.m

    Graz is headlined by Austria’s no. 4-ranked player 6’6” Matthias Linortner and no. 11 cager 6’2” Moritz Lanegger. Completing the squad are unranked players 6’9” Fabricio Vay and 6’7” Filip Krämer.

    Qatar’s no. 14 player 6’5” Babacar Dieng leads the home team together with no. 11 Faisal Abuissa, 6’7” Abdelrahman Yehia Abdelhaleem, and 6’10” Souley Ndour.

    “Since we lack size as our big men have been affected by the quarantine measures here, we will be utilizing our speed and shooting,” said Lanete, who played for Uling Roasters-Butuan during the 2020 Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 President’s Cup.

    “We are heading into Doha with an underdog mindset.”

    The top team will advance to the tournament proper and join USA’s NY Harlem and Princeton in Pool D. NY and Princeton are no. 4 and 5, respectively, in the world club rankings. Pool games will also be played on March 26. (MS)
