PASIG—Brandon Rosser, the first pick of last year's PBA Draft, was also the first to be chosen in the draft for the Rookies-Sophomores-Juniors Game of the PBA All-Star Week.

Coach Caloy Garcia took Rosser first in the said draft to headline his Stalwarts squad during the PBA All-Star Draft Show on Monday night at the TV5 Studios in Mandaluyong.

Greats coach Richard Del Rosario, on the other hand, opted to counter Rosser by taking Justin Arana first in his team.

Both coaches went for match-up after match-up in their next picks.

Eventually, completing Team Stalwarts are Calvin Oftana, Joshua Munzon, Encho Serrano, Anton Asistio, Tyler Tio, Shaun Ildefonso, Mike and Matt Nieto, and Aris Dionisio.

Joining Arana and Del Rosario in Team Greats are Ato Ular, Aaron Black, Allyn Bulanadi, Jerrick Ahanmisi, Adrian Wong, Jerrick Balanza, RK Ilagan, Javi Gomez De LiaƱo, and Isaac Go.

Go, however, is expected to still be sidelined by the All-Star Week from March 9-12, which means a reserve will take his place.

Alec Stockton, Aljun Melecio, Andrei Caracut, and Kent Salado are listed as reserves for the RSJ Game.
