‘Pinatubo Trio’ reunites as Abueva, Sangalang show support for Pascual
MANILA, Philippines — PBA stars Calvin Abueva and Ian Sangalang provided much-needed support for their former college teammate Ronald Pascual, who hit “rock bottom” recently.
Known back then as the “Pinatubo Trio” during their days at San Sebastian, the three linked up on Sunday night.
Sangalang documented their reunion on his Instagram.

Earlier this month, Pascual’s brother Ronel shared the former PBA player’s plight on Facebook.
“Financial support is not a factor right now, all he needs is encouragement and emotional support!” he wrote. “I believe he has already hit rock bottom and now the only way is up!”
“I believe now is the time for him to get out of his miserable situation and come home here in Pampanga! Again I am asking for your support, love, and prayers for my brother.”
The 32-year-old Pascual was the fourth overall pick by the San Miguel Beermen in the 2014 PBA Draft.
He bounced around the league and last played in 2018.
Pascual, Abueva and Sangalang led the Stags to an NCAA title in 2009.
