Kagay-anons should watch out for Sam Josef Belangel, a 6-foot big time scoring guard from Bacolod City as he leads Batang Gilas, the Philippine national youth basketball team in the SEABA Under-16 tournament from April 14 to 19 in Cagayan de Oro City.
Belangel rose to fame by scoring 99 points in a game in Iloilo and another 85-point game playing for Tay Tung High School in Bacolod City. Tay Tung was where PBA star James Yap played in high school. Read what he has to say on Belangel HERE.
