As of composing, NLEX has actually not validated whether they will certainly be having fun with a brand-new import versus the Bossings or they will certainly be going All-Filipino

While NLEX doubts of its import scenario, Blackwater will certainly return the solutions of international cager Shawn Glover.
Glover aided Blackwater break its 29-game winning touch back in 2021.
Other than the impressive import, Vanguardia is likewise thrilled to play a meeting with a total lineup.
