In partnership with Brandblack, a California-based basketball brand, Titan Love Court hosted the Titan X Brandblack Basketball Showcase last June 25.

The showcase was kicked off by a camp lead by Titan Basketball Academy coaches along with Gerald Anderson, Rayver Cruz, Young JV and Joe Vargas for over 30 young athletes from Gerald Anderson’s charity.

It was Team Thunder against Team Lightning lead by Gerald Anderson and Rayver Cruz, respectively for the main event. Celebrities, former pros and collegiate ballers and personalities who share the same love for the game took the court to treat the hundreds in attendance to an exciting ball game.

Right when the buzzer sounded for tip-off, it was easily seen how enthusiastic the players were to be on the court. Energy was sky high with the teams playing fast-paced basketball.

Gerald Anderson picked up his shooting early in the game by making four of his seven treys in the first quarter alone to help bring his team up by 15 at the end of the first 12 minutes of play. The game then got even more exciting when Team Lightning turned up the notch and play in a complete team effort to close the gap to just seven points at the half.

In the second half, Team Lightning continued playing hard to eventually take the lead and cruise through the rest of the game for the 113-109 victory lead by a combined 60 points from the trio of Paulo Hubalde, Rayver Cruz and Luis Alandy.

Both teams in the Titan X Brandblack Basketball Showcase were kitted in game exclusive uniforms inspired by the Seattle Pro-Am game Jamal Crawford played in, Titan Love Court custom socks and the new Brandblack Rare Metal Lightning. The Brandblack Rare Metal retails for Php 5,495 and is out now in Titan Fort, Titan Shang and TITAN22.COM.
