Dylan Ababou (born December 7, 1986 in Leyte) is a Filipino professional basketball player who currently plays for the Barako Bull Energy in the Philippine Basketball Association. He was drafted 10th overall in 2011 by the Energy. He was one of the key players of the UST Growling Tigers who won the UAAP title in 2006. He was also named the 2009 UAAP Season MVP. He also plays for the national team Smart Gilas.


College career

Ababou played for the UST Growling Tigers Men's Senior Basketball team in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines from 2005 to 2009. In 2006, he was one of the members of Growling Tigers who won the title against the heavily favored Ateneo Blue Eagles 2-1. In 2009, Ababou was crowned the Season MVP on his final year with the Tigers.[1]

Smart Gilas

Immediately after his collegiate career with the Tigers ended, Ababou was called to join the Smart Gilas Philippine national team together with the likes of Chris Tiu, JV Casio, Mac Baracael and Mark Barroca, players whom he faced during his college career. However, his tenure with Smart Gilas did not went well as he had limited playing time with the team. Also, the arrival of Marcio Lassiter and Chris Lutz to Smart Gilas did not bode well with Ababou as his playing time grew even more limited.[2]

Barako Bull Energy

In the 2011 PBA Draft, he was drafted 10th overall by the Energy.[3] In his first game with the Energy he scored 20 points on 8-13 FG as he led the Energy to a victory against the Barangay Ginebra Kings 88-75.[4]
