    RICCI Rivero will reunite with his former La Salle running partners Aljun Melecio and Andrei Caracut as they headline this year's 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason All-Star Game on Friday.

    Reigning UAAP MVP Bright Akhuetie and much-celebrated rookie Kobe Paras, both of University of the Philippines, will join the trio in the first five for the UAAP All-Stars as they take on their counterparts from the NCAA at 4 p.m. at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

    Also part of the UAAP selection are La Salle's Justine Baltazar, Adamson's Jerrick Ahanmisi, Simon Camacho and Jerom Lastimosa, FEU's L-Jay Gonzales and Ken Tuffin, UST's Mark Nonoy, and NU's feisty wingers Dave Ildefonso and John Lloyd Clemente.

    Lyceum's top gun Mike Nzeusseu join twins Jaycee and Jayvee Marcelino in the starting lineup, as well as Arellano's Kent Salado.
