The weekend will culminate with the highly-anticipated All-Star Game, with the North going up against the South. Moreover, during the halftime break of the game. The best of the best coming from the PBA Women’s 3×3 Tournament will showcase their talents as well.

“We’re planning [a lot of activities],” said Commissioner Narvasa about the weekend. “Sinabihan na ako ni Chairman Robert Non na kailangan under his watch, maiba naman para matandaan ng basketball fans yung event.”
