Known as high-flyers in the UAAP, the three dunkers are set to participate in “Home Jam: Dunkers Only” showdown as sports fans long for action during the quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The contest, hosted by National University’s Shaun Ildefonso, will be streamed live on ABS-CBN Sports Facebook and Instagram accounts at 2 pm.

Judges Kobe Paras, a two-time FIBA 3×3 Under-18 dunk champion, and NorthPort’s Robert Bolick will score the participants at their respective locations for three rounds.

Ravena and De Liaño showed glimpse of their practice as seen on social media recently.

The former Ateneo standout will take his act in Japan after signing with San-En Neophoenix in the Japan B. League, the ball club announced Wednesday.

De Liaño and Malonzo, from University of the Philippines and De La Salle, suited up under Marinerong Pilipino in the suspended 2020 PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup.
