MANILA, Philippines—Andy Gemao participated in the recently concluded NBA 2024 Basketball Without Borders (BWB) Global camp at Indianapolis, Indiana for the All-Star Weekend.

While not being able to win the entire thing with the Pistons, Gemao was the only Filipino to participate in the global camp that honed several collegiate stars in the country today.

The BWB camp’s championship went to the Pacers after defeating Gemao’s Pistons in the title match, 39-31.

Gemao didn’t go home alone without any accolades, though, as the Letran Squire registered the highest max vertical jump among his young peers with a 40.5-inch vertical jump.
