PASIG CITY, Philippines — UNTV Cup’s two-time champion teams, AFP Cavaliers and Judiciary Magis, proved their caliber on Sunday’s double-header at the Pasig City Sports Center.

Season 4 finals Most Valuable Player Boyet Bautista and Rookie Romeo Almerol led the AFP Cavaliers to win against the GSIS Furies.

The soldiers dominated quarters one to four to mark a 103-95 win.

For Coach Sonny Manucat, preparation with goal setting is everything.

“Talagang nag-prepare kami. Sabi ko, first impression for the other teams na champion team tayo. Saka we all agree na we’re on the same page again, na goal namin semifinals, then finals again,” Coach Manucat said.

(We really prepared for this. I told the boys, we need to makea  first impression to other teams that we are a champion team. And we all agreed to be on the same page again, that our goal is to reach semifinals and then finals.)

On the GSIS side, Coach Myk Saguitguit admitted they came up against a big challenge, with only nine out of his 17 members able to play for the Furies.

“Maraming hindi nakapunta ngayong game na ito pero maganda ang nakita kong result even [though] we lost this game. Nakita ko mas maganda ang gelling nila ngayon compared to the last season,” Coach Saguiguit said.

(Many of our players were not able to come for this game but I saw a good result even though we lost this game. I saw that their gelling was better at this game compared to last season.)

The opening ceremony of a basketball league within the different police districts in Metro Manila

MANILA, Philippines — It took the Philippine National Police (PNP) Responders four seasons in the league of public servants before finally taking home the championship title in Season 5.

However, the cops failed to defend the title last season, when the Senate Defenders ousted them in the quarterfinals.

At the UNTV Cup Executive Face-off last year, the AFP Cavaliers beat the PNP executive roster in an overtime game.

This time around, the Responders is prepping up a new and stronger lineup to once again win a ticket to the finals of the UNTV Cup Season 7.

On Thursday, the PNP Responders themselves kicked off a basketball competition within the police institution, from which their new players for the next season and the off-season games will be selected.

Hoopster cops from the Manila Police District (MPD), Southern Police District (SPD), Eastern Police District (EPD), Quezon City Police District (QCPD), Northern Police District (NPD) and the national headquarters are among the participants.

The UNTV Cup Executive Face-Off kicks off in may where colonels and generals of the police force will step and battle on the UNTV Cup hardcourt.

“Hopefully we will be able to get [players] with ‘fightiness’ and the most powerful,” said PNP Directorate for Operations PDir. Camilo Cascolan.

“Sana makagawa din kami ng sariling team sa NCRPO, payagan tayo ni Kuya Daniel,” said NCRPO chief PDir. Oscar Albayalde.

(We hope we can also establish our own team in the NCRPO if Kuya Daniel permits.)

Meanwhile, the two-time most valuable player of the league, reveals the team’s main goal for the coming season.

“Kasi nawala kami sa Final 4. Gusto naming maging competitive. Gusto naming makabawi at gusto naming andon kami sa Top 4. Yun ang pinakagoal namin,” said PNP Responder forward Ollan Omiping.

(We were not able to make it to the Final 4. We want to be competitive. We want to bounce back. We want to be in the Top 4. That is our main goal.”

The PNP Responders won P4-million after lifting the championship trophy in Season 5, all for their chosen beneficiaries. — Victor Cosare | UNTV News & Rescue
