EXCITING basketball matches will enliven anew the Xavier University gym in Cagayan de Oro City on Saturday.
This, as Cagayan de Oro’s finest in-school dribblers and their counterparts from Davao are set to show wares in the 2014 Sea Oil All Stars as usual follow-up to the just-concluded NBTC Mindanao 2 Division and NBTC Cagayan de Oro championships won by Malaybalay City’s Bethel Academy and Sacred Heart of Jesus Montessori School (SHJMS) last Sunday at same venue.
“This is going to be another exciting event as we expect the crowd support from parents, students and regular cage buffs karong Sabado,” Arvin Martinez told Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro.
Martinez, the Mindanao area head of the National Basketball Training Center, said there would be 30 players each from Cagayan de Oro and Davao to be divided into four teams that will see action in the Sea Oil All Stars.
Taking the floor first at 6 p.m. are the CDO All Stars Dark of XU coach Manny Diaz against the CDO All Stars Light of Sacred Heart coach Edgardo “Boy” Dacoco.
Capping the night is the keenly awaited Cagayan de Oro-Davao All Stars face off that is guaranteed to be a sure-fire hit.
“To be fair to everyone, we conducted an all-star votation, wherein the top-20 vote getter will be able to play in the All Star game. The rest (10 players) are picked via coaches votes to complete the 30-man roster for Davao and Cagayan de Oro,” explained Martinez.
