The Unanimous Back-to-Back MVP was blocked by young basketball aficionado
Mamuyac bagged first spot among the 10 young athletes from all over Asia at SC’s Under Armour Asia Camp in Taiwan yesterday.
Gian Mamuyac, a player for the Philippines’ U-18 National Team, stayed close in front of Curry and blocked the Back-to-Back MVP’s three-point attempt. Highlighting the camp, the young pinoy was awarded the MVP of the Under Armour Asia Camp in Taiwan yesterday, September 6.
The Philippines never missed out this tour as basketball is the country’s top sport and being able to play on court with Stephen Curry is one of the Filipino youth’s most awaited basketball experience.
Gian represented the country together with Juan Gomez De Liano of UP Maroons team.
The Back-to-Back MVP embarked on his second annual summer tour with Under Armour which began September 2. Unique experiences rolled out across four cities in five days for fans to feel the fervor and excitement for basketball that only Stephen and Under Armour can provide.
Some of Asia’s best young basketball players and fans experienced Stephen’s relentless dedication to the game of basketball up close and personal during tour stops in Shenyang, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Taipei.
“I’m thrilled to get the chance to visit some of the best basketball fans in the world this summer,” said Curry. “Being able to share my passion for the game with this next generation of players in Asia—while immersing myself in their incredible culture and witnessing first-hand the infatuation for the game—is humbling, and personally it’s a tremendous re-energizer for the upcoming season. I can’t wait to meet some of the phenomenal fans and players who are committed to driving the game forward on a global scale.”
