Game Results of the adidas Uprising Philippines 2017

The future of Philippine basketball is here.
The 3-Stripes brand welcomes a new batch of creators to the second adidas Uprising Philippines.

Elite high school basketball players spent another summer playing the sport they love as adidas Uprising Philippines opened its doors to them for the second time.

On the first year of Uprising, we have witnessed inspiring talent and passion through high school students who played their heart out in every game. On Uprising’s second year, we are looking forward to seeing that again – and more. Having 32 contending teams this year, we are bound to see more emerging creators in the world of Philippine basketball,” said Jen Dacasin, adidas Philippines Brand Communications and Sports Marketing Manager.
