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.

Venue: Pasig City Sports Center
DOJ Justice Boosters rev up its armaments as it gears up against Senate Sentinels in the second game of UNTV Cup Executive Face-off tripleheader on Sunday, 3:30 PM at the Pasig City Sports Center.
DOJ Head Coach Noli Mejo said they remain determined in winning their last two games in the elimination round to advance to the offseason playoffs along with the top 3 teams.
Justice Boosters currently hold 2 wins and 3 loss record.
Coach Mejo said, “We need to win against the Senate and Malacañang-PSC to advance to the final four. We will probably improve our trapping defense and half-court defense.”
The Sentinels meanwhile are raring to add more wins to their current 3-2 record, hoping for the return of their ace players, Senators Joel Villanueva and Sonny Angara who missed the games last week due to injury.
Sentinels Coach Mike Fermin said, “They said they can’t play this game and then in the next two games they will give everything. We really need to win the last two games to get to the final four.”

Australian missionary Sister Patricia Fox
MANILA, Philippines – Malacañang maintained on Tuesday, June 19, that Australian missionary nun, Patricia Fox could still face deportation.
This is despite the justice department’s nullification of the order that forfeited her visa.
“So uulitin ko po she is not off the hook. Ongoing po ang deportation proceedings. Antayin po natin ang decision ng CID (Commission on Immigration and Deportation) on whether or not sumapi sa pulitika itong si Sister Fox,” Presidential Spokesperson Secretary Harry Roque said.
(I will repeat: she is not off the hook. Deportation proceedings are ongoing. Let us wait for the decision of the CID on whether or not Sister Fox participated in political activities.)
Roque said Fox’s deportation will push through if deportation proceedings conclude that she indeed joined political activities in the country which is a violation of Bureau of Immigration (BI) regulations. — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News & Rescue

PNP Responders’ eyes are firmly on the prize this off season as it continues to bulldoze its way to the playoffs after routing Senate Sentinels at Sunday’s main game, 86-64.
PSupt Joel De Mesa led the PNP in keeping its 6-0 lead with his 21-point finish with 4 rebounds.
“Salamat sa Dios, salamat sa pag-guide sa amin at saka yung effort talaga, team effort from the players and the coaching staff nagwo-work talaga, nag ge-gel kami,” PNP Responders Head Coach SPO2 Alfred Suarez said.
(Thanks be to God. Thank you for the guidance and for the team effort from the players and the coaching staff. It really works, we gel together.)
Senate attributed its second defeat to the absence of its ace players, Senators Joel Villanueva and Sonny Angara.
“Si Senator Joel [Villanueva] kasi may hamstring injury si Senator Sonny [Angara] naman yung tuhod nya medyo sumasakit. It bothered him sa mga previous game namin, so malaking kawalan,” Senate Sentinels Head Coach Mike Fermin said.
(Senator Joel has a hamstring injury while Senator Sonny was complaining of knee pains. It was bothering him in our previous games so it’s a big loss really.)
DOJ Justice Boosters, meanwhile, widens berth to playoffs after handing AFP Cavaliers its fourth consecutive loss, 77-69.
The recent defeat further obscures AFP’s chances of defending their title while DOJ needs to win two more games to survive the elimination rounds.
Senior Assistant City Prosecutor Nonilon Tagalicud lifted DOJ with 21 points, 11 rebounds and two assists.
“Medyo maganda nilaro namin sa defense. Siguro kailangan pa naming manalo next game,” DOJ Head Coach Noli Mejo said.
(We had good defense plays so we need to win in the next game.)
