Yap to PBA All-Star in Bacolod

James Yap to Play for Team Barroca in PBA All-Star in Bacolod

Negrense basketball player James Yap, representing Blackwater Bossing, has been selected to join Team Barroca for the highly anticipated 2024 PBA All-Star Game, which will be held on March 25 at the University of St. La Salle Gym in Bacolod City. Yap’s selection marks his unprecedented 18th consecutive appearance in the PBA All-Star Game, demonstrating his continuing talent and popularity in Philippine basketball. This year’s event is especially significant for Yap because it will be hosted near his birthplace of Escalante City, Negros Occidental, adding to the veteran player’s enthusiasm.

Team Barroca, led by Magnolia Chicken Timplados Hotshots guard Andy Mark Barroca and coached by San Miguel Beermen mentor Jorge Gallent, has a powerful squad that includes basketball greats such as June Mar Fajardo, Jason Perkins, Jaymar Perez, and others. With such a tremendous squad, Team Barroca is ready to give an exhilarating performance on the field.

Team Japeth, captained by Gin Kings star Japeth Aguilar, has an impressive lineup of Philippine basketball players. Team Japeth, led by comrades Christian Standhardinger, Stanley Pringle, and Paul Lee, is preparing for a heated battle against Team Barroca.

Last year’s All-Star Game saw Team Japeth defeat Team Scottie in a dramatic contest at Iloilo Province’s City of Passi Arena. This year, spectators can expect another thrilling show of basketball prowess as the country’s best players fight for the title.

The All-Star celebrations will include the Rookie/Sophomore/Juniors game, with Aklanon Keith Zaldivar heading the Stalwarts All-Star squad and Jerrick Ahanmisi guiding the Greats All-Star team. These games promise to highlight developing talents and future stars in Philippine basketball, adding to the event’s interest level.

With anticipation and excitement growing, the 2024 PBA All-Star Game is shaping to be a spectacular spectacle honoring the most extraordinary Philippine basketball talent.
