MANILA--The rising stars of the PBA will face off with cat-quick vets in the PBA All-Star Obstacle Challenge on April 28 at the Quezon Convention Center in Lucena.

Five of the league's young guards, including defending champion Maverick Ahanmisi of Rain Or Shine, will face off in a race against time.

Joining Ahanmisi in the side event among the young guns are Blackwater's Roi Sumang, Mahindra's LA Revilla, Meralco's Ed Daquioag, and TNT's Kris Rosales.

The said game will not lack veteran smarts as the other seven competitors have already been in the league for quite some time.

Last year's participants Emman Monfort (NLEX) and Chris Banchero (Alaska) will try to bounce back from their early exit.

Meanwhile, Sol Mercado (Ginebra), Stanley Pringle (GlobalPort), RJ Jazul (Phoenix), Justin Melton (Star), and Chris Ross (San Miguel) complete the cast.
