Will Team Greats make it back-to-back against Team Stalwarts?

Top pick Brandon Ganuelas-Rosser and the rest of the team are certainly hard-pressed to repeat the act come the PBA All-Star weekend set March 23-24 here in Bacolod City.

Last year in Passi, Iloilo, Team Greats blasted Team Stalwarts, 158-138, in the return of the Blitz Game after a seven year absence featuring rookie, sophomore, and junior players.

Adrian Wong was adjudged back then as MVP of the side event that introduced for the first time the four-point line and three-point dunk shot.

Ganuelas-Rosser was with the losing side the last time, but will definitely be looking for his personal payback this year’s summer spectacle presented by Arena Plus.

Joining the TNT big man at Team Greats are Juan Gomez de Liano, Ken Tuffin, Jerrick Ahanmisi, Justin Arana, Ralph Cu, Andrei Caracut, RK Ilagan, Alec Stockton, Gian Mamuyac, James Laput, Shaun Ildefonso.

Meanwhile, San Miguel rookie guard Kyt Jimenez emerged as the top pick of Team Stalwarts to be coached by Beermen deputy mentor Peter Martin.

With Jimenez in the team are Stephen Holt, Keith Datu, Fran Yu, Adrian Nocum, Kim Aurin, John Amores, JM Calma, Joshua Munzon, Anton Asistio, Leonard Santillan, and Keith Zaldivar.

The Blitz Game will be played on March 23 at the University of St. La Salle Coliseum at 6:15 p.m.

It will be preceded by the Skills Challenge set at 3 p.m. featuring the Obstacle Challenge and the Long Distance Three-Point shootout among guards and big men.*PBA.PH
