SLR Starts Preparation For Title Defense

On: 21 August 2008

All-Filipino Champs

In an effort to improve their chances of defending the title as the reigning PBA All-Filipino Champions, the Sta. Lucia Realtors left the country on 20 August 2008 for a series of exhibition games in Bahrain, Qatar and Dubai.

The Realtors’ first stop is Bahrain where they are set to play import-reinforced club teams Muharraq and Ah Ahli.

"We will have two games in Bahrain and then we will proceed to Doha, Qatar where we will also have two games against their national team," SLR Manager Buddy Encarnado said.

The Realtors biggest test in its Middle East tour could well be the Qatar national team, which the Realtors will face on Aug. 25 and 26 in Doha.

The team will be back on 31 August in time for the annual draft at the Market Market Place in Taguig. But the rest will be very brief as they are again scheduled to go to Boston for a two-week training (3-18 September) under Kevin Barbosa. Also included in the US trip are exhibition and tune-up games in San Francisco, Lake Tahoe and Reno, Nevada.
