QUEZON CITY, Philippines — Sunday’s triple header brings two-time champion Judiciary Magis and Season 3 runner up Malacañang team back to a showdown on the UNTV Cup hardcourt as they battle for the first time this season.
The Magis, armed with four former basketball pros, are gearing up ahead of the much awaited match.
Coach Joey Yabut of Judiciary Magis said, “Pag-aaralan namin mga plays nila, transition offense para ma break kaagad namin, saka yung depensa yun talaga mahalaga sa laro.”
“Kailangan talaga namin manalo sa susunod na game para makapasok kami ulit sa semis, saka number one team yun sa kabilang grupo, kung matatalo namin yun medyo lamang na kami sa panalo.”
(We will thoroughly assess their plays, transition offense, so we could break them. And defense is important in a game. We really need to win in the next game to be able to advance to the semifinals. And they are the number 1 team in the other group. If we beat them, we are at the advantage.)
On the other hand, the Malacañang Kamao with its new roster has its mind set for a tough bout against the former champs.
Malacañang Head Coach Louie Gonzales said, “Handa naman yung team dyan. Naka-mind set kami na… ang treatment namin sa elimination, hangga’t tumatagal kailangan malaman naming yung galawa at kung ano ang kayang ibigay ng bawat isa.”
(The team is prepared. We have a mindset in treating the elimination such that as the games go on, we must be able to learn the moves and full capacity of every team member.)
Watch out for the Judiciary-Malacañang championship caliber battle on Sunday, 5:30 PM at the University of Makati Gymnasium with live telecast on UNTV and live streaming via untvweb.com.
Half time entertainment on Sunday’s triple-header will be provided by Kath Loria, Sam Mangubat of Tawag Ng Tanghalan and Tim Pavino.

MANILA, Philippines —The Department of Agriculture Food Masters are set to face off with the Ombudsman Justice Boosters as they step into their third game in the league of public servants.
The Food Masters, now with one game won and one game lost, admit there are many areas for improvement and more to prepare for especially that opponents are guarding reinforcement player Jimwell Torion.
Head Coach Zaldy Realubit said his club needs to beef up on defense.
“Siguro mag-adjust pa sa mga bagay… hindi kami nakaka-shoot. Hindi kami marunong dumepensa (Maybe we will adjust on things… we couldn’t shoot baskets. We couldn’t defend),” he said.
As the Food Masters gear up against the Graft Busters, which now has a 0-1 win-loss record, the UNTV Cup crowd must watch out for more action and new plays from the rookie team.
“Inaanyayahan ko po kayo na panoorin kami ulit, mga Food Masters. Sigurado po marami po kaming ipakikitang bago na laro namin sa susunod na laro (I invite you all to watch us again, the Food Masters. I assure you that we will showcase new plays at the next game),” Team captain Augustin Manganip Jr said.

MANILA, Philippines – Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship, Joey Concepcion has responded to critics questioning the foreign trips of President Rodrigo Duterte, demanding concrete result of each travel.
Recent reports also indicate that there is a 14% drop in the foreign direct investments in the country for the first 6 months of 2017 compared to that of last year.
“If it is constantly going down for the last two-three years then maybe you have a problem. But if it’s just a blip this year I wouldn’t be concerned…we look at it long term,” Concepcion said. “Nothing is always a direct arrow going up, there are always cycles and that’s normal.”
Concepcion added that the business confidence in the country is high. The Philippine Stocks Exchange Index has maintained a good overall performance in the market.
Malacañang remains positive that there will be more foreign direct investments in the country and reiterated that the Duterte administration is laying the foundation first, such as long-lasting peace, security and resolution of criminality and illegal drugs, to sustain economic development in the country.
“He wanted to lay foundation for a comfortable life for all and he’s, in fact, looking forward to beyond 2022, not for himself but for the rest of the administration, for other administrations to come in in order to bring decent life for the Filipino inclusively for every Filipino,” Presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella said.– Rosalie Coz | UNTV News & Rescue
