Ateneo men’s basketball team are facing a dauntless task ahead, facing eight international teams not only from Asia, but from all over the globe in the 40th William Jones Cup in Taiwan.

Being one of the few collegiate teams to represent the whole nation is a feat in itself. They are set to face national squads and professional clubs from countries like Canada,  Lithuania,  Asian rivals Iran and Korea.

To bag the trophy, Ateneo will need to perform their best on all of their games as the tournament will follow a single-round robin format, which champion would be determined by their overall win-lose record.

Their first hurdle is Chinese Taipei (White) this Sunday, July 15 where they will battle not only the team, but the home crowd as well.
