Team Greats is gearing up for a shot at a repeat victory over Team Stalwarts in the upcoming PBA All-Star weekend, scheduled for March 23-24 in Bacolod City.

Last year in Passi, Iloilo, Team Greats delivered a resounding 158-138 victory over Team Stalwarts in the much-anticipated Blitz Game, marking the event’s return after a seven-year hiatus. The game showcased the talents of rookie, sophomore, and junior players, introducing innovations like the four-point line and three-point dunk shot. Adrian Wong emerged as the MVP in that thrilling showdown.

Team Greats, led by top pick Brandon Ganuelas-Rosser, is aiming for another stellar performance this year. Ganuelas-Rosser, who experienced defeat in the previous encounter, is determined to turn the tables and secure victory for his team. 

Joining him are standout players such as Juan Gomez de Liano, Ken Tuffin, Jerrick Ahanmisi, and others, forming a formidable lineup ready to showcase their skills on the court.

On the other side, Team Stalwarts, coached by San Miguel Beermen deputy mentor Peter Martin, is eager to stage a comeback. The team boasts promising talents like rookie guard Kyt Jimenez, Stephen Holt, Keith Datu, and others, who are ready to challenge Team Greats and prove their mettle in the All-Star showdown.

The highly anticipated Blitz Game is scheduled for March 23 at the University of St. La Salle Coliseum, kicking off at 6:15 p.m. Before the main event, fans can enjoy the Skills Challenge featuring the Obstacle Challenge and the Long Distance Three-Point shootout, showcasing the agility and shooting prowess of both guards and big men in the league.

As the excitement builds for the PBA All-Star weekend, basketball enthusiasts can look forward to witnessing thrilling matchups, dazzling displays of talent, and unforgettable moments on the court. With both teams hungry for victory, the stage is set for an electrifying showdown between Team Greats and Team Stalwarts.
