I am willing to help organize (but definitely not bankroll) an all-star team of alumni of the defunct CAAA based in Metro Manila for the next conference of this tournament.

It will feature former stars of UV, UC, San Jose-Recoletos, Southern Philippines, Salazar Tech, Cebu Tech, San Carlos and Cebu Doctors.

After 2 weekends, I think team to beat is LaSalle. Though San Beda shares the lead, also with 2 wins and no defeats.

With Espinosa, Lago, Bautista, Cardel, Uy, Patrimonio in the lineup, this team is "comparatively young" and fast and strong for the opposition.

But, San Beda is one competitive team. Kaya malamang ito ang magkita sa finals.

Spoiler will be Letran. They will meet San Beda this weekend. If they can stop Reroma, they should have a good chance of winning. Otherwise, San Beda ako rito.

All Star teams with comparatively younger players would be having a bigger advantage over all-star teams with "ancient" players(read: 45 and above).

Players under 30 have more spring in their legs can run more & play more minutes; those between 30-40 will have more experience on their side while those 40 plus would just have to rely more on "Gulang"

Lasallle' has a lot of younger all stars in their line-up, but so is the RL of Sanbeda and Letran.

Brit RErOMA can run around circles and make his teamates look good on his passing skills,what with Elmer Reyes on the receiving end, considered one of the best finishers in a fastbreak play in the PBA.

But don't count the Letran All stars out. They also have pointguard JP Prior who at 29 can still be PBL material, with former teamate Velez and Billy Moodyl

These younger guys are still at their peak, kaso nga lang walang team na masalihan sa PBA

John Paul Prior is already ineligible for PBL, where the age limit is pegged at 26. Prior cannot invoke returnee status because he has been out of the PBL for more than a year already, last seeing action with the defunct Blu Star.

LA SALLE OVERPOWERS SAN BEDA FOR HOMEGROWN CUP ALL-STARS CHAMPIONSHIP

The La Salle trounced their undermanned counterparts from San Beda, 92-66, to win the All-Stars Division Championship of the Homegrown Cup yesterday afternoon, May 6, at the San Juan Gym.

Suiting up only 8 players, San Beda was overwhelmed by the firepower of La Salle which had 9 of its members score 5 points or more, with 3 finishing in double figures.* La Salle took the first quarter, 19-10, behind the sniping of Dwight Lago and Johnnedel Cardel, and never looked back.* They extended their advantage to 41-20 going into the half with Alvin Magpantay and Noli Locsin leading the charge.* Sonny Manucat, who was expected to carry the scoring load for San Beda with the absence of Elmer Reyes, could only connect on a trey, a two-pointer and a free throw as he struggled mightily from the field.

The La Salle onslaught continued in the second half and the outcome of had long been decided before the third quarter ended, 60-33.* Magpantay scored 13 points in the fourth quarter on his way to a game-high 18 points as the last quarter was reduced to a shoot around as both teams combed for 65 points.* San Beda’s Guiness Nabung scored 12 of his team-high 18 points in this quarter but it was a case of too little too late.

Prior to the awarding of trophies and cash prizes, Eric Gascon of Far Eastern University,* Manucat and Reyes of San Beda and Dominic Uy and Tony Boy Espinosa of La Salle were named into the Mythical Five Selection with Espinosa winning the Most Valuable Player honor.

La Salle – 92:* Magpantay 18, Garcia 17, Lago 10, Liwag 8, Locsin 7, Espinosa 7, Bautista 6, Manguera 5, Cardel 5, Patrimonio 4, Uy 3, Marquez 2, Perez 0, Ley 0
San Beda – 66:* Nabung 18, Rivera 9, Guzman 9, Manucat 9, Magalong 8, Cristobal 7, Recio 4, Martin 2
Quarterly scores:* 19-10, 41-20, 60-33 and 92-66

As early as two weeks into the event, DLSU had already emerged as favorites.

A San Beda without a Reroma, Reyes and Largo, is simply no match. The big deficit was due to atrocious shooting of Manucat and Guzman, which just compounded the lack of talent on the bench.
