Two UC Cagers Fly to Seoul for Steph Curry Tour

Posted by on 27. July 2017

Two University of Cebu Cagers get a chance of a lifetime to fly to Seoul, South Korea and be a part of Steph Curry’s Asian Tour.  They earned their slots in the tour after winning the Under Armour 3×3 Under 18 Philippines title earlier this year.

Under Armour 3×3 Ph Champs

University of Cebu’s John Bryl Cuyos and Virlou Orquez earned a trip to Seoul for the Stephen Curry Asia  Tour after winning Under Armour 3×3 Under-18 Philippines title recently. Cuyos and Orquez will get the chance to see the top Under Armour ambassador in person when Curry goes to Seoul on Wednesday for the final stop of his Asia tour. The two were members of the victorious UC squad that captured the Under Armour 3×3 Southeast Asia Cebu crown and the Under Armour 3×3 Southeast Asia Philippines title in Manila.The two cagers will travel on Wednesday where they will see Curry at the Jungchang Gymnasium in Seoul. The expenses were all paid by Under Armour Southeast Asia where they will get a chance to interact and play with the NBA champion.

The UC squad overcame tough odds against teams from various parts of the Philippines to capture the two titles that will not be possible without the support of coach Joever Samonte and Atty. Estenso.  Cuyos and Orquez also showed they have what it takes to be among the best players in the country.

The 17-year-old Cuyos has an impressive resume that includes being a two-time Cesafi All-Star, a two-time Cesafi runner-up, and a two-time runner-up in the Cebu City Olympics. He is also a Mandaue City Olympics Cebu Inter-High School, Cordua 1st Mayors’ Cup, and WJC 1st Cup champion.  Orquez, 18, was a former member of the Holy Trinity High School in Alberta, Canada where he was an Edmonton Journal All-Star. In the Philippines, he helped UC win the Mandaue City Olympics Cebu Inter-High School champion.

UC defeated University of Visayas, 15-14, in the heartstopping final in the Cebu tournament before flying in to Manila to also make a big impression as the Webmasters beat Bounty A also in pulsating fashion, 21-20, in the final.

Curry’s visit in Asia comes with the launch of Curry3Zero, the latest Under Armour shoe line for the NBA superstar.

    I am sure these guys will have the time of their lives there in Seoul with their idol Steph Curry. As generous as Curry is, I bet he will be sharing important lessons in basketball and life with these boys.
