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.

Rookie team PDEA Drug Busters eases to the second round eliminations of the league of public servants, UNTV Cup.
This, as the DOJ Justice Boosters toppled the Ombudsman Graft Busters, 95-73 on Sunday’s triple header.
Based on the league’s point system, the DOJ, Ombudsman and DA Food Masters get eliminated from the league this season, while PDEA reaches the next round.
Meanwhile, Group A’s DOH Health Achievers, COA Enablers and BFP Firefighters also exit the games.
In the AFP-DOH hard court battle, the AFP Cavaliers defeated the DOH Health Achievers 92-71.
With this, the soldiers share the 5-1 win-loss standing with the Senate Defenders in Group A.
And in the GSIS-PNP match, the UNTV Cup crowd saw an impressive win by the GSIS Furies over defending champion PNP Responders 76-68.
GSIS Furies Head Coach Myk Saguiguit said, “Ang will nila, talagang trinabaho nila nang husto. Kasi hindi namin inisip na we’re in sa second round. Sabi ko i-solidify pa natin, maka-tsamba tayo against defending champion PNP.”
(They willed it. They really worked hard for it. We didn’t think that we’re going to the second round. I said to them, “We must solidify ][our performnace]. Who knows, we may actually beat the defending champion, PNP.)
This win catapults the Furies to the third spot in Group A with four games won and two games lost, surpassing the Responders which now has a 3-3 win-loss standing.
PNP Responders Head Coach Erik Samson, “Nahirapan kami. Especially hindi kami gaanong nakadepensa nang maayos doon sa mga one-on-one nila, sa atake nila, at maaga kami nag-penalty.”
(We had a hard time beating them. Especially when we failed to guard them closely on their one-on-one plays, attack plays. And we got into penalty situation early in the game.)
Rene Boy Banzali and James Patrick Abugan were hailed as the best players of the game after bucketing 54 combined points.

Any winner of this match between DOJ Justice Boosters and Ombudsman Graft Busters will not advance to the second round elimination round of UNTV Cup Season 6 (PHOTOVILLE International)
The fate of rookie team Department of Agriculture Food Masters and the PDEA Drug Busters lies on the outcome of the battle between the DOJ Justice Boosters and the Ombudsman Graft Busters on Sunday afternoon at the Olivarez Gymnasium in ParañaqueCity.
Should the Justice Boosters defeat the Graft Busters, there will be a triple-tie among the DOJ, PDEA and DA teams.
And based on the rules of the UNTV Cup point system, PDEA will advance to the next round while the DA will exit the league this season.
But if the Ombudsman beats the DOJ, the Department of Agriculture team will enter the next round based on the win over the other rule.
It should be noted that the DA team won against the PDEA team 104-100 last September 17.
Of the seven teams in Group B this season of the league of public servants, the Judiciary Magis, Malacañang-PSC Kamao and the NHA Builders all with 5 games won and 1 game lost will advance to the second round eliminations.
Meanwhile, the AFP Cavaliers is adamant to clutch its fifth win as the first round eliminations of the UNTV Cup Season 6 comes to an end on Sunday.
The two-time champion is set to take on the DOH Health Achievers in the third game.
The soldiers aim to level with the Senate Defenders which is on the top spot in Group A with a 5-1 win-loss standing.
Last Sunday’s neck-and-neck clash between the AFP and the PNP saw the soldiers triumph over the policemen, 100-92.
Under Group A, the BFP Firefighters, the DOH Health Achievers and the COA Enablers this season did not succeed to ease to the next round of the games. — Bernard Dadis | UNTV News & Rescue
