Movie actors Carlos Agasi and Jordan Herrera joined the Bambi Emano Sports Team for an exhibition game against a team composed of barangay chiefs of Cagayan de Oro.
The star-studded team of Misamis Oriental Rep. Yevgeny Emano (2nd District) included Councilors Ian Mark Nacaya, President Elipe, Alden Bacal and Alexander Dacer as well as Opol Mayor Dexter Yasay and Fernando Dy.
As an added attraction, a media team trounced another team of barangay chairmen, 68-64, and thanked Cagayan de Oro 1st District Rep. Benjo Benaldo for sponsoring their up-and-down uniform. The media team was coached by Gerry Gorit.
Tournament officials Gerry Sabal and his assistant Chinglai Casino said Mayor Emano gave out cellphones, t-shirts and basketballs to the lucky raffle draw winners among the spectators.
The tournament was open to the public for free.
In December, the third edition of the tournament will be staged in the different barangays of the city.
