Stanley Pringle, Matthew Wright, Marcio Lassiter, Alex Cabagnot, Arwind Santos, Ian Sangalang, and Raymond Almazan complete the team.

For Gilas, coached by NLEX's Yeng Guiao, a 7-man team composed of June Mar Fajardo, Mac Belo, Allein Maliksi, Terrence Romeo, Gabe Norwood, Jio Jalalon, and Kiefer Ravena will see action.

Tip off is set for 7:00 p.m. at the City Sports Center here following the side events that includes the Obstacle Challenge, Slan Dunk Contest, and the 3-point shootout.
