CEBUANO wingman Patrick Jan Cabahug will finally get his chance to play for his hometown after signing up for the Casino Ethyl Alcohol-Cebu Sharks in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL).

Cabahug, who briefly played for Air21 in the PBA before embarking on a nomadic basketball career that saw him play in various leagues around Southeast Asia, had initially agreed to play for the Zamboanga Valientes.

However, when Cebu came calling, Cabahug simply could not refuse.

“It’s a dream come true to finally represent my hometown,” shared the 6-foot-1 perimeter deadshot, who is currently playing in Thailand and will only be available to the Sharks at the end of June. “I left Cebu at the age of 16 to play for Adamson University. Since then I’ve never had a chance to play for Cebu.”

Now that he finally gets his crack at playing for Cebu, Cabahug couldn’t be more excited.

Cabahug also expressed his gratitude to the management of Zamboanga, who graciously agreed to free him from his commitment to the Valientes for the chance to go back home.

“I just want to say thanks to the Zamboanga team for the opportunity. When I received the offer to play for the Cebu team, it’s like a sign, like this is it, I’m finally going to be able to play for Cebu. So I formally talked to Boss Junnie Navarro about it. I told him and am really thankful he understood my side,” said Cabahug.
