SBP names Jack Animam as Ambassador for Women in Basketball


Jack Animam will play a huge role in promoting women’s basketball in the country.

The multi-titled cager has been assigned by Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) as Women in Basketball Ambassador.

“Jack has been a blessing for women’s basketball here in the Philippines and we’re happy to have her front-and-center for the SBP’s Women in Basketball Program,” announced SBP President Al S. Panlilio in a statement.

Animam, who recently led the Shih Hsin University to a perfect record en route to a championship in University Basketball Association in Taiwan, has been anointed by SBP because she served as an inspiration to many young Filipina basketball players not only to devote themselves to the sport, but also to set lofty goals for themselves.

“Aside from winning five straight championships in the UAAP, what really sets Jack apart was that she was always available when the country needed her services on the international stage, may it be for 3×3 or five on five. We know how passionate she is about elevating Filipina basketball players by giving them a bigger stage and that’s why she’s perfect for the role.”

Now given a bigger platform, help increase awareness of SBP Women’s in Charge via different activations and encourage women’s participation in the sport by continuing to serve as a role model and an inspiration.
