According to Wishcovery Season 2 grand champion, Rhea Basco, her childhood dream was to become a mermaid, inspired by the animated version of the classic fairytale, The Little Mermaid.

And for a day, she was finally able to live this fantasy through scuba diving in Mabini, Batangas when she joined the crew of UNTV’s travel series, “The Dive” on its latest episode.

With over 80 beaches and dive resorts, Mabini is dubbed as the “Diving Capital” of Batangas Province.

It has 26 world-class dive sites, including four protected marine sanctuaries – Arthur’s Rock, Batong Buhay, Twin Rocks and Cathedral dive site.

Mabini is also the location of Anilao – believed to be the “Birthplace of Philippine Scuba Diving”. Anilao is well-known as the “Mecca of Macro Fauna” due to its spectacular marine critters, making it one of the most-visited diving destinations of local and international underwater photographers.

With two and a half to three hours of land travel from Metro Manila, Mabini is one of the nearest destinations where beach chasers can go to level up their travel adventure through scuba diving.

Tough defense was Judiciary’s main weapon in defeating the three-time and defending champion AFP Cavaliers last Sunday, 78-72.

“Yung ensayo namin double effort kasi kalaban namin three-time champion, kailangan talaga sila paghandaan. At saka depensa namin medyo maganda kanina kaya siguro tinalo namin sila,” Judiciary Magis Coach Joey Yabut said.

On the other hand, AFP Cavaliers head coach Cornelio “Sonny” Manucat II said, “Medyo nagkaroon ng lapses sa defense, yung game plan hindi ginawa.”

Hailed as Best Players of the Game were Jearomel Serrano, who nailed 5 three-pointers, and Chester Tolomia with 17 points.

“Sobrang saya kami […] yung team namin medyo nag-improve talaga yung sa depensa,” Chester Tolomia expressed.

“Eto yung halos pinakamalakas na team ngayon [AFP Cavaliers], kahit papaano nagawan namin ng magandang laban yung AFP at ang resulta nanalo kami,” co-BPG awardee Jearomel Serrano said.

Only the Cavalier Darwin Cordero scored in double digits, 32 points, for AFP.

Because of tough defense, the usual AFP gunners, Boyet Bautista and Jerry Lumongsod, were restricted in the scoring department.

Meanwhile, Wilfredo Casulla Jr. was not present in the clash as he is undergoing mandatory schooling for career advancement if the Philippine Air Force which will end after two months.

AFP Cavaliers has now dropped to 2nd place in the ranking with 6 wins and 1 loss, leaving the DENR Warriors on top.

Meanwhile, Judiciary Magis improved its record with 3 wins and 3 losses.

In the other game, Marvin Mercado recorded a double-double stat line with 28 points, 14 rebounds plus 3 assists and 1 steal to lift the NHA Builders against the Agriculture Food Masters, 74-72.

“Practice pa rin kami, tapos dasal. Ini-involve namin lahat ng players, yun ang nagpapaganda ng laro namin kaya kami nanalo,” Best Player of the Game Marvin Mercado confessed.

“Inayos namin yung mga plays namin, yung mga depensa namin. Salamat naman sa end game nanalo rin kami. Tatlong game na kami talo sa end game so hopefully gumaganda na yung laro nila sa end game, na-co-contain na namin yung aming panalo,” NHA Builders Head Coach Silverio “Bennett” Palad expressed.

And in the third game, PITC Global Traders climbed to the 4th spot after serving the Malacañang-PSC Kamao its second loss, 68-58.

“Wala lang laban lang talaga, we are just working hard every practice, every game, so I hope magtuloy-tuloy,” PITC Global Traders Head Coach Vic Ycasiano admitted.

Marlon Keith Martin was honored as the Best Player with 17 points, 3 rebounds, and 1 steal.

On next Sunday’s game (December 8), PhilHealth Plus will go against Judiciary Magis at 2 pm while NHA will take on PITC and AFP- Malacañang-PSC will be pitched as the main game of the triple-header.
