With 21 local champion titles, Jude Deloso is currently the best NBA2K player in Iloilo.

A freshman from the Central Philippine University, Deloso competed at the NBA2K ASIA Philippine Qualifiers representing ISC, Iloilo and the Visayas together with 3ND’s Joben Javellana.
In his first matchup, Jude defeated a previous 2 time Champion of the national tournament and Asia champion – PBE Philippe in a heated 63 – 62 matchup.

In the semifinals, Jude brought the game to Lebsanity; a well-known player all the way from Mindanao. After hurdling the challenge from his opponent, Jude took his spot in the grand finals bracket.

In the grand finals, Jude was up against the Infamous Uncle J that flew all the way from Manila over to Cagayan De Oro to secure his slot in the tournament.

In their final 3 matches, uncle J won 2-1 against Jude bagging 50,000 pesos tax-free.

Jude has competed in the NBA2K Asia tournament since NBA2K18 and other tournaments such as Console Esports League in Metro Manila.

While the 19-year-old Ilonggo placed 2nd, he still has a shot in redemption in the upcoming NBA2K Asia Finals as the Philippine Representative.

He’ll be competing with the best players from other Asian countries this March 6, 2020 with a whopping 10,000 USD Prize Pool.
