IN A fitting encore to their high school careers, 30 of the finest high school players in the country pit skills in the 2nd Seaoil National Basketball Training Center All-Star Game at Ynares Center in Pasig on Sunday.
Patterned after the popular McDonalds All American All-Star Game in the United States, the game will feature 22 players from Metro Manila, with the rest coming from the provinces.
Collegiate coaches will be keen observers as they look out for the best talents from this year’s batch.
“These young men will gain the needed exposure in front of high caliber collegiate coaches,” NBTC training director Alex Compton said.
Among those strutting their wares are two-time UAAP MVP Jerie Pingoy of FEU, NCAA MVP Rey Nambatac, Andre Paras, Robert Bolick, and Mario Bonleon of La Salle Greenhills, Raphael Atangan, Reggie Morido, Levi Dela Cruz, and Ralph Busa of National University, and Edralin Villanueva and Clint Doliguez of Hope Christian High School, the MMBL champion.
Other players to look out for are Jeson Delfinado and Roger Domingo of FEU, Axel Inigo of San Beda and Bong Quinto of Letran. Cedelf P. Tupas
