MORE great news comes from the KFC FZ 3-on-3 Streetball Challenge; another retired PBA player will be coming to Brunei.

This time will see Vincente Paul Martin Hizon, also known as Vince “The Prince” Hizon, being in Brunei from March 29 til March 31. Last year’s 3-on-3 tournament brought in retired Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) players Mark Telan and Chris Calaguio who both received warm welcome from the public and the organisers expect similar result with Vince’s upcoming visit. At one time, he became the most popular player in the PBA as well as the most popular sports figure in the Philippines according to the AC Nielsen Asian Rim Survey in 1998.

Vince Hizon, with a pro career of 11 years (1993 – 2004), played mostly with Ginebra and was known for his clutch three-point shooting and his slashing drives to the basket. In 2004, he became the first Filipino player to play professionally in the United States, then coached by retired NBA player Darryl Dawkins, a.k.a “Chocolate Thunder”. His upcoming visit to Brunei will see him playing in an exhibition game with the winners of the student and open category and also help out in the “Hopes In The Hoops” basketball clinic.

“Vince Hizon is a buddy of mine and he’s really good. We hope that by bringing him here to Brunei, basketball enthusiasts will grab this opportunity to learn from him,” said Erwin Velez, KFC manager and retired PBA player.

As part of the “Hopes In The Hoop” initiative, basketball clinic will be held from March 29 til March 31 at The Airport Mall from 2pm until 3.30pm daily led by Brunei’s Basketball National Team Coach Kevin Reece and retired PBA player Erwin Velez.

Registration is $5 per person and all revenue collected will be donated for a good cause. Schools that send teams to join the 3-on-3 March tournament will receive free jerseys and also have the registration fees for the basketball clinic waived for their players. On Friday, March 29, Vince Hizon will also be involved with the basketball clinic.
