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.
