    Pingris, De Ocampo, Tenorio to test Gilas players' mettle in three-part PBA All-Star Week

    Mar 26, 2017
    James Yap, Mark Caguioa, Marc Pingris, Scottie Thompson, and LA Tenorio will test the mettle of Gilas players in three PBA All-Star games to be staged in Lucena City, Cagayan de Oro and Cebu City.

    PROTAGONISTS in the 2017 PBA All-Star Week were revealed last Sunday, with homegrown players from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao leading the selections that will take on Gilas Pilipinas in three games across the archipelago.

    Former Gilas stars like Marc Pingris, LA Tenorio and Ranidel De Ocampo will be part of the PBA All-Stars that will test the mettle of members of the national pool in games to be held in Cagayan de Oro on April 26, Lucena on the 28th and Cebu on the 30th.

    Mac Mac Belo, who hails from North Cotabato, and Cagayan de Oro's proud son Jiovani Jalalon will lead out the Mindanao selection to be coached by Chito Victolero .

    Sonny Thoss and Troy Rosario will serve as 'imports' for team CDO given the lack of big men in the region. 

    The Luzon selection, on the other hand, will be led by Gilas veterans Jayson Castro, De Ocampo and Pingris. Coach Leo Austria will be returning to his hometown in Lucena as the squad's mentor. 

    Three-time MVP June Mar Fajardo will be at the forefront of the Visayas selection in the Cebu game alongside Negros' James Yap. Tim Cone will be the head coach for Visayas. 

    The Slam Dunk Contest and the three point shootout will both be played in the Luzon leg in Lucena. 

    Here's the complete line-up:
