It was a dream come true for Xian Lim who came home to the Philippines from the US to play basketball.

“It’s a dream come true,” Lim told “Eto ‘yung dahilan kung bakit ako pumunta from States to the Philippines, to play basketball for UE along with (JR) Alabanza. Nakakatuwa na nag-reconnect kami.”

The actor, now managed by Viva Artists, had six points and six rebounds as the Mandaluyong El Tigre defeated Pasig Pirates.
