    Filipinos in 2023 B.League All-Star Weekend

    Gilas Pilipinas stars Dwight Ramos of Levanga Hokkaido, Bobby Ray Parks of Nagoya Diamond Dolphins, and brothers Kiefer Ravena of Shiga Lakes and Thirdy Ravena of San-En NeoPhoenix lead the squad made up of imports from the Asian Players Quota as they take on the Rising Stars squad on Jan. 13.

    Also part of the crew are Matthew Wright of Kyoto Hannaryz, Justine Baltazar of Hiroshima Dragonflies, and Jay Washington of Ryukyu Golden Kings.

    It's unclear, though, if Washington can still suit up after he was released by Ryukyu a day prior.

    Second division imports Kobe Paras of Altiri Chiba, Jordan Heading of Nagasaki Velca, Roosevelt Adams of Kagawa Five Arrows, and Greg Slaughter of Rizing Zephyr Fukuoka complete the Filipino delegation for the midseason exhibition.
