MANILA – The Alaska Aces maximized their time in Legazpi City as they joined the annual Department of Education initiative “Brigada Eskwela” a day before their scheduled match against Talk N’ Text KaTropa on Saturday.
On Friday, Aces coaching staff and players took time off the court to help teachers, parents and volunteers in cleaning and re-painting classrooms of the Bagumbayan Central School in Legazpi City.
The team also held a Mini Alaska Powercamp for kids present during the Brigada Eskwela, teaching them ball handling and shooting techniques.
Tony Dela Cruz, Vic Manuel, Christopher Exciminiano, Jake Pascual, Kevin Racal, Noy Baclao, and Simon Enciso were some of the Aces who participated in the activity, joining assistant coaches Louie Alas and Jeff Cariaso.
Alaska also spent time with some patients of the Bicol Regional Training and Teaching Hospital.
The Alaska-TNT game will tip-off at 5 p.m. at Ibalong Centrum for Recreation in Legazpi City.
Here are some photos of the team in the Bicol region as posted on the team’s Facebook page.
