Filipino American teen wins FIBA ‘Under 17’ MVP
A big award for a basketball prodigy.
16-year-old Jalen Romande Green has won the FIBA Under 17 MVP, and has been named to the all-tournament team.
Green averaged nearly 16 points a game, as Team USA captured gold this past weekend at the U-17 tournament.
The Fresno based Fil-Am player, whose mother traces her roots to Ilocos Sur, is considered by many as the top high school player in the class of 2020.
Recently, Jalen enjoyed a visit to the Philippines, where he played against the country’s top prospects.
