Robert Bolick and Team Saints are out for a repeat against Team Heroes
Games on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre
1:00 PM – Side Events (Skills Challenge, Shooting Stars, Three-Point Shootout, Dunk Contest)
4:00 PM – Team Saints vs Team Heroes
Once in a blue moon, San Beda University gets to team up with archrival Colegio de San Juan de Letran.
That blue moon has come once more in the NCAA 94 All-Star Game on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.
Red Lions Robert Bolick, Javee Mocon, and Radge Tongco will be teammates with Knights JP Calvo, Christian Fajarito, and Bong Quinto for the Team Saints side to be coached by multi-titled Boyet Fernandez.
Flanking the archrivals will be College of St. Benilde’s Josh Barnes, JJ Domingo, and Luigi Velasco; San Sebastian College-Recoletos’ Allyn Bulanadi, Michael Calisaan, and Alvin Capobres; and University of Perpetual Help’s Edgar Charcos, AJ Coronel, and Prince Eze.
The San Beda-Letran merger takes the floor starting at 4:00 PM and of course, all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
Last year, Bolick and Eze connived to give Team Saints an 84-80 win.
Determined for a different outcome, however, are the Team Saints to be fronted by league-leading Lyceum of the Philippines coach Topex Robinson and key cogs Marcelino twins Jaycee and Jayvee as well as Toci Tansingco.
Backstopping them will be Ian Alban, Michael Canete, and Levi Dela Cruz of Arellano University; Juju Bautista, Jeric Diego, and Jerome Garcia of Emilio Aguinaldo College; Aaron Bordon, RJ David, and Jed Mendoza of Jose Rizal University; and Warren Bonifacio, Cedric Pelayo, and Laurenz Victoria of Mapua University.
Telecast begins at 1:00 PM with the Skills Challenge, Shooting Stars, Three-Point Shootout, and the Slam Dunk Contest preceding the All-Star Game.
