During the launching of The Ultimate All-Star Face Off Master Game Face Challenge 2014 held at Treston Int’l. College Gym in Taguig, we asked former Ateneo Blue Eagles and SEA Games team captain and current Rain or Shine player Chris Tiu and current Gilas Pilipinas player and PBA defensive play legend Marc Pingris of what they think of their first-five team members and what they’re going to do to outdo their rivals. Chris said to us, “My challenge for my team members is to go hard to win the game. To try to win the game because Marc and I have a personal history and I need to get even with the score.” (RELATED: Big guy Marc Pingris forever thankful for his first endorsement and you’ll never guessed what he said next!)
“That’s true, I have to encourage my team to play hard and with their talent, we are able to gel. We will gonna bring it on,” Chris added.
Under the helm of Chris are UAAP basketball stars Jeron Teng (DLSU), Chris Newsome (ADMU), Kevin Ferrer (UST) and Mike Tolomia (FEU), while current Gilas Pilipinas player and PBAdefensive play legend Marc Pingris is also set to lead UAAP stars Andre Paras (UP), Jeoffrey Javillonar (NU), Jericho Cruz (ADU) and Roi Sumang (UE). His team will also include professional basketball players and selected collegiate players. Fans of Marc Pingris’ team can show their support online by using the hashtag #MasterGameFaceMarc and fans of Chris can use#MasterGameFaceChris online.
His team is expected to include other top players from the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and from the PBA.

We are proud to invite fans to the Araneta Center on June 21 for the Master Game Face All-Star Basketball Challenge, where Master ambassadors Chris Tiu and Marc Pingris will battle for an epic showdown with their respective squads of top collegiate hoops players and all-star players from the Gilas team and professional basketball groups. It will be a good venue to showcase how top Filipino basketball players put their oil-free game faces on with Master Oil Control Max Facial Wash,” said Unilever’s Male Grooming Brand Manager Jonathan Pua.
