MANILA – The Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup Mindanao leg just got some star power.
Actor and former reality show star Gerald Anderson is joining the team formerly known as the Cagayan De Oro Rafters for the Mindanao leg scheduled to tip off on May 25 pending the clearance from the Games and Amusements Board.
The 5-foot-11 guard, who still got to play high school hoops in his hometown of General Santos and last played for the Imus Bandera in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL), signed up with the Brew Authoritea-owned franchise, which is currently looking for a new local government partner after CDO begged off.
Mac Baracael and JR Cawaling, who starred for Far Eastern University in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines during the late 2000's, are set for a reunion as they will lead the way for Brew Authoritea.
Reil Cervantes, who last month was revealed to be the new main man of the CamSur Express in the National Basketball League, was also confirmed to be joining Brew Authoritea.
Completing the lineup are Ronjay Buenafe, Joseph Sedurifa, Paul Sanga, Lucas Tagarda, Ralph Salcedo, Francis Munsayac, Mark Sarangay, Brylle Meca, Andro Catipay, Andoy Estrella, and John Gonzaga.
Vis Valencia will coach Brew Authoritea, reuniting him with Estrella, who was his player with the Quezon City Capitals in the MPBL.
Dale Lacorte and Leo Avenido will backstop Valencia in the coaching staff, while Nino Valenzuela has been named as the team manager. (PNA)
