The BEST Center's Bida BEST Live backed by Milo returns this Saturday with two special guests in former PBA star Patrick Fran and former award-winning head coach Perry Ronquillo.

Hosted by former Philippine national women’s basketball team member Julie Amos and Popoy Navarro, the son of the late great Cebuano sportsman Enrico Navarro, the show will stream live on the Facebook page of the BEST Center Sports Inc. at 7:30 p.m.

Fran was one of the pillars of the Mobiline squad that won the Centennial Cup in 1998 and then, the 2003 All-Filipino Cup. In a career that spanned over a decade, Fran distinguished himself as one of the league’s most prolific defenders, earning a spot on the All-Defensive Team three times. He was also named the Most Improved Player in 1998, and was awarded the Samboy Lim Sportsmanship award in 2003.

Ronquillo on the other hand, is a former two-time Coach of the Year winner in the 90s when he led the defunct Shell Turbo Chargers to two titles in four straight finals appearances. (JNP)
