    Energen Team Line-Up and Schedule of Games in FIBA Under 16 Tournament 2011





    The Energen Under 16 Team of the Philippine is now in Vietnam to compete in the 2nd FIBA Asia U-16 Tournament. But sadly, their main man Arvin Dave Tolentino and some of the other NCAA Juniors players were not permitted to join our National Youth Team because they are currently participating in the NCAA Season 87 Semi-Finals and Finals. That's why coach Olsen Racela will have to work with this new line-up of the Energen Team. The list came from http://sports.inquirer.net.

    Hubert Cani (National University), Rev Diputado (San Beda), Kyles Lao (Xavier), forwards Jay Javelosa (Reedley International) and Earl Murphy (Ateneo), and center Daryl Pascual (Arellano). Seeing action in their first international tournament are Tomas Ramos (Ateneo), J-Jay Alejandro (Mapua), Prince Rivero (National University), Andrei Caracut (San Beda), Isaac Go (Xavier), Nic Dalafu (Victory Christian International) and Jordan Heading (Morrison High School).

    The Team would miss a big 19.5 points and 8 rebounds production coming from Arvin Tolentino, but coach Olsen remains to be optimistic about it. He said that:

    “The other guys just have to step up. But I think we’re ready. A few more practice games and we’ll be set.”

    They are training really really hard that despite not having a well lighted practice venue in Vietnam, they still pushed themselves to be better. That's a testament on how badly they want to win in this FIBA U-16 Tournament.

    Coach Olsen's team will face Indonesia as their first assignment in the FIBA Asia U-16 Tournament on October 19 and then they will face the host country Vietnam on the 20th. They are in Group D while the defending champion, China is in Group A.
