Jack Animam will arrive in Serbia as one of the most decorated stars in Philippine basketball today, having won multiple titles in the local and international scene

Filipina basketball star Jack Animam is taking the next trailblazing step in her decorated career as she signs with ŽKK Radnički Kragujevac of the First Women’s Basketball League of Serbia on Monday, August 23.

“I’m just so happy, proud and honored that I’ve come this far. I just want to thank my supporters, the EWP (East West Private), the people behind me.  I’m just overwhelmed and super excited,” she said during a special press conference.

The 6-foot-2 center is arriving in Serbia as one of the most decorated stars in Philippine basketball today.

Not only was she part of the legendary 96-0 run by the National University Lady Bulldogs that produced six straight UAAP titles, but she also led the Gilas Pilipinas Women’s team to double gold medal finishes in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games.

Since then, she has flexed her might overseas as part of Taiwan’s Shih Hsin University’s title run in the University Basketball Association (UBA) and in the United States with the Atlanta Entertainment Basketball League (AEBL).

Now with Radnički Kragujevac, the 22-year-old Animam is expected to bring the same dominance and skill that brought her numerous accolades at home and abroad. – Rappler.com
