University of Cebu's John Bryl Cuyos and Virlou Orquez earned a trip to Seoul for the Stephen Curry Asia Tour after winning Under Armour 3×3 Under-18 Philippines title recently. 

Cuyos and Orquez will get the chance to see the top Under Armour ambassador in person when Curry goes to Seoul this week for the final stop of his Asia tour. 

The two were members of the victorious UC squad that captured the Under Armour 3×3 Southeast Asia Cebu crown and the Under Armour 3×3 Southeast Asia Philippines title in Manila.

The two cagers will travel on Wednesday where they will see Curry at the Jungchang Gymnasium in Seoul. The expenses were all paid by Under Armour Southeast Asia where they will get a chance to interact and play with the NBA champion.

The UC squad overcame tough odds against teams from various parts of the Philippines to capture the two titles that will not be possible without the support of coach Joever Samonte and Atty. Estenso.

Cuyos and Orquez also showed they have what it takes to be among the best players in the country.
