Guam’s Expanded Roster is also loaded with young talent currently still in high school, college, or recently graduated.

The rising stars include Jonathan Galloway (UC Irvine All-Time Leading Rebounder), Mike Sakazaki (recently graduated Chaminade University player), Chris Conner (University of the East player), Ben Borja (California Maritime University player), Tomas Calvo (California Lutheran University player), Michael Min (New York University player), Takumi Simon (2019 Pacific Games Gold Medalist), Billy Belger (2019 Pacific Games Gold Medalist), A.J.
