Group B is composed of San Miguel, Terrafirma, Talk ‘N Text, Phoenix and Team Greats. 

A simple opening ceremony and parade is set at 9 a.m. afterwhich the league will announce the six teams which will plunge into action in the 11 yers-under category.

Another tournament confined to eight and nine-year-old kids will also be held simultenously as well as a halfcourt play for 7-year-old kids. 

Among the second-generation stalwarts to watch are Lucas (Ginebra) and Lewis Tenorio (San Miguel), Raymond Aguilar (Ginebra), Marcel Josiah (Blackwater) and Myles Lassiter (San Miguel), Xavier David Trillo (Meralco), Cameron Richard Wilson (Phoenix) and Robin Marcial (Ginebra).
