This year’s top high school players will be taking part in the SLAM Rising Stars Classic once again. But before the game this Sunday, the Rising Stars got together for the first time last March 16 for their first practice and the Gatorade Hydration Test and Skills Challenge.
For some, it was a great chance to hang out with fellow players who they faced in their home leagues and other players who they haven’t met before. This year’s Rising Stars got an up close look at this year’s uniforms from Nike. They were also able to meet their coaches for the game, Gian Nazario and Yuri Escueta.
Here are some of the highlights of the SLAM Rising Stars Practice.
The SLAM Rising Stars Classic will be held on March 31, 7PM to 9PM, at the Gatorade Hoops Center in Mandaluyong. The game will be aired on ABS-CBN Sports via livestream.
