Duremdes leads Jr. NBA bets to China

Two sons of former PBA stars were among the 16 players ages 12 to 14 who left the country yesterday to represent the country in the Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA Experience in Shanghai, China.

Kenjie Trey Duremdes of La Salle Greenhills and Joachim Eddie Laure of University of Santo Tomas, both 13, lead the group that will meet other fellow Jr. NBA All-Stars from Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore for a two-day training and scrimmage as reward for being selected in Alaska Milk-backed regional camps held earlier this year.

Duremdes is the son of 1998 PBA Most Valuable Player Kenneth while Laure’s dad Eddie first starred in the now-defunct Metropolitan Basketball Association before playing several seasons in the PBA.
