The Beast’s Road to FIBA Asia

Calvin Abueva, the 6’2 forward who is a product of Angeles, Pampanga, has been making a name for himself in Philippine basketball, which earned him the nickname “The Beast”. In his college days with the San Sebastian Stags, Abueva posted mind-boggling numbers with averages of 20.4 points, 14.9 rebounds, and 4.9 assists in his collegiate career. Because of this, he earned the reputation of being the “Triple King Crown” as he led the NCAA in all three of these categories. With this, he also bagged the NCAA MVP in its 87th season. Another milestone he achieved was being part of the NCAA Mythical Five three times, specifically in the 85th, 86th and 87th seasons.
