MANILA, Philippines - The NCAA takes a break from its regular tough matches by holding the third All-Star game today featuring Team East and the West squad and novel events tipped to perk up the third staging of the event.

The Shooting All-Stars and the Skills Challenge are only two of the side events on tap along with the regular slam dunk competition, the three-point shootout and the centerpiece All-Star game.

“This year’s NCAA All-Star edition offers more excitement because we’ve introduced a pair of new events,” said NCAA Management Committee chair Jose Mari Lacson of Season 92 host San Beda.

“We also have some new talented players who came out from this year’s batch tipped to spice up the already talent-laden cast,” he added.

The East’s Jio Jalalon of Arellano and the West’s Rey Nambatac of Letran lead a stellar cast that  includes Arellano’s Kent Salado, Perpetual Help’s Bright Akhuetie, San Beda’s Davon Potts and Donald Tankoua and Jose Rizal’s Teytey Teodoro and Paolo Pontejos in the keenly awaited match set at 1 p.m.

The East includes San Beda’s Dan Sara, Arellano’s Julius Cadavis, Jose Rizal’s Ervin Grospe, Perpetual Help’s Gab Dagangon and AJ Coronel, San Sebastian’s Michael Calisaan, Ryan Costelo and Jerick Fabian.
