All-Filipino champion San Miguel Beer will square off with Anyang KGC and its new recruit Rhenz Abando on opening night of the 2022-23 East Asia Super League (EASL).
The Beermen will be fielding import Thomas Robinson when they meet Anyang KGC on October 12 in Seoul, Korea.
Anyang KGC, runner-up in the Korean Basketball League (KBL) last season, secured the services of the NCAA Rookie-MVP before plunging into EASL action.
Meanwhile, Philippine Cup runner-up Talk 'N Text will battle the Bay Area Dragons in Manila.
San Miguel and TNT figured in a grueling but exciting title clash with the Beermen coming out triumphant after 7 games.
The Beermen are grouped with Anyang KGC in Group A with Taipei Fubon Braves and Ryukyu Golden Kings.
TNT and Bay Area Dragons belong to Group B with Utsonomiya Brex and Seoul SK Knights.
