With Olympic qualifiers looming, Pasaol not yet thinking of PBA

MANILA, Philippines -- Former University of the East (UE) star Alvin Pasaol is fully focused on the upcoming Olympic qualifying tournament (OQT), where he and the country's national 3x3 team hope to earn a berth to the Tokyo Games.

"Siguro focused muna kami kung paano kami manalo sa OQT," Pasaol said when pressed about his PBA options during the Philippine Sportswriters Association Forum on Tuesday.

Pasaol, twice a member of the UAAP Mythical Team, opted not to join the PBA Rookie Draft in 2019 in order to focus on his 3x3 career. His decision paid off when he was included in the national team, together with Joshua Munzon.
