Jayson Castro to play exhibition games at the 3x3 World Tour Final

ABU DHABI (3x3 World Tour Final) - Philippines basketball star Jayson Castro will play two exhibition games during the FIBA 3x3 World Tour Final in Abu Dhabi on Thursday and Friday.

This means bringing one more marquee name to the season's climax, with the fomer Gilas Pilipinas star guard joining Filipino rising star Kiefer Ravena and PBA players Karl Dehesa and Paulo Hubalde.

The 3x3 Smart Gilas team will compete against a UAE 3x3 All-Star team at 21:40 local time (GMT+4) on Thursday 27 October and the winners of the GCC Final at 22.00 on Friday 28 October.

For the first time in three years, no Filipino team made it to the Top 12 who compete in the FIBA 3x3 World Tour Final tournament. Terrence Romeo led a Manila West which finished 5th overall in 2014 and Calvin Abueva starred on the Manila North team which won 6th place last year.
