Jiovani Jalalon and Rey Nambatac will wear their respective school colors for the first time in years in the NCAA 95 All-Star Game.
Jalalon will don Arellano University's blue and grey as part of Team Heroes and they will be matched up Team Saints with Rey Nambatac, donning the blue and red of Colegio de San Juan de Letran, in tow, Tuesday at MOA Arena.

At the opposite end will be Nambatac who will be joined by Season 95 champion Knights Jerrick Balanza and Bonbon Batiller.
Then completing Team Saints are College of St. Benilde's Justin Gutang, Edward Dixon, and Paolo Taha; San Beda University's Clint Doliguez, AC Soberano, and Ryusei Koga; San Sebastian College-Recoletos' RK Ilagan, Alvin Capobres, and Michael Calisaan; and University of Perpetual Help's Edgar Charcos, Ben Adamos, and Justin Alano.
