The San Miguel Alab Pilipinas are all set to defend their crown this upcoming 2018 ASEAN Basketball League.

All 10 teams were present during the preseason press conference on Tuesday at the Marriot Hotel, Pasay.

“From our humble beginnings, we are now an important player in the international basketball scene,” said COO Jericho Ilagan.

“The ABL’s purpose was to create basketball memories that would stand the test of time. For the past eight seasons until now, that has driven the league to greater heights.”

Leading the national team is back-to-back MVP Ray-Ray Parks, who is also rumored to join the 2018 PBA Draft. Also enforcing the team are reigning Defensive Player of the Year Renaldo Balkman and new import PJ Ramos.

On the same day, the Alab Pilipinas unveiled their official jersey which is heavily-sponsored by San Miguel.

Alab Pilipinas will first square off against CLS Knights on December 9, at the Sta. Rosa Multi Complex Sports.
