The selected players were among the Top 40 performers who were singled out from a total number of 499 participants aged 10-14 from all over the south.

“These boys worked hard, they competed, and they helped each other along the way. It’s great to see such a fantastic turnout and such a deep pool of future Pinoy basketball players to come.”
