Volleyball star and television host Gretchen Ho also has some skills to spare in the basketball court as she showed off her shooting prowess in Bulacan.

The TV host dedicated her short hoops session to the late Gianna Bryant, or Mambacita, the daughter of the legendary Black Mamba, Kobe.

“Running into the weekend be like… When I see a ball, I just can’t resist,” Ho said on Instagram earlier today, Feb. 7. “This one’s for Gianna!! #Mambacita.”

The TV host seemed to be in heat as she landed five out of five consecutive shots from mid to short range, as seen in the video.

Ho also greeted with a simple “hi” Gilas Pilipinas coach Sandy Arespacochaga, who commended Ho’s shooting skills.

“Nice! Looking good!!!” the coach commented, to which Ho replied: “training uliiit (again).”

Arespacochaga then agreed, saying, “gaaaame! Text Lang (Just text)! Shot looking smooth!” He was recently tapped to be part of Gilas Pilipinas’ coaching staff alongside Tab Baldwin and head coach Mark Dickel.

Former PBA player Chris Tiu also praised Ho, saying the TV host had a “nice form.”

It is no secret that Ho has basketball skills, and her pre-UAAP hosting “warm-up” video back in March 2019 proves this.

Ho was one of the local celebrities who mourned the sudden deaths of father and daughter Kobe and Gianna. The two died in a helicopter crash along with seven other people on Jan. 26.  /ra
