Kobe Paras makes a return to the FIBA 3x3 stage.

(CNN Philippines) — The Philippines showcases a youthful lineup in the upcoming FIBA 3x3 World Cup 2017.

Former UAAP standouts Kiefer Ravena, Jeron Teng, and Raymar Jose, will join forces with US-based college prospect Kobe Paras to represent the Philippines at the FIBA 3x3 World Cup in Nantes, France from June 17 to 21.

The Philippines finished 9th in a field of 20 teams in their first appearance at the World Cup in China last year.

The previous Philippine team was bannered by now-Blackwater Elite cager Mac Belo, Karl Dehesa, Russel Escoto, and Glenn Khobuntin.

In 3x3 tournaments, the 19-year old Paras has competed in two FIBA 3x3 U18 World Cups and is a multi-titled dunk champion.

Ravena and Teng have teamed up before in 3x3, representing the Philippines in an exhibition game in 2015.

The Philippines are grouped in Pool B with Romania, Slovenia, France, and El Salvador.
