Stars of the past come home even as stars of the present take center stage anew in the revamped NCAA All-Star Game in Season 95.
Jio Jalalon joins Team Heroes as they go at it with Team Saints fronted by Rey Nambatac and champion Colegio de San Juan de Letran, Tuesday at MOA Arena.
Jalalon and Nambatac go home and get to share the stage with the likes of the Marcelino twins, Jerrick Balanza, and RK Ilagan starting at 4:00 p.m. on S+A, S+A HD, LIGA, LIGA HD, iWant and via livestream.
Unlike years past, the revamped All-Star Game will feature two current players as well as one alumnus for each and every member-school.

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.
