MAKATI CITY, Philippines — An 11-point lead was thumping in the hands of the Judiciary Magis, leaving the Malacañang Kamao distraught in the main game of Sunday’s triple header.

The two-time defending champion stunned Kamao early on by dominating the first quarter with scores 20-6.

In the third quarter, however, the Malacanang team was able to steal the lead with only 2 minutes left, 47 – 46; but the Judiciary quickly regained the advantage, 53-52.

The Judiciary’s offense remained intense in the last quarter, until the last buzzer of the ball game, securing the 2nd place in the team standings with a 7-1 win-loss record.

With 25 points, including five shots from the 3-point territory, 9 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals, Chester Tolomia was hailed as the best player of the game.

Team Malacañang falls to the 4th place with a 5-2 win-loss record.

In the second game, the BOC Transformers claims their seventh win in a row after turning the winning momentum of the MMDA Black Wolves upside down ending the ball game with scores 84 – 71.

The Transformers’ slate remains unblemished with no games lost, while the MMDA plunges with 4-4 win-loss record.

And in the Responders-Firefighters hard court action, the BFP brings home a disappointing 2-point loss, after being extinguished by the three-time runner-up team, 86-84.

Ollan “The Sniper” Omiping was hailed as the best player of the game after drilling 21 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists alongside Harold Sta. Cruz with 9 points and 11 boards.

Senate to pass proposed joint resolution on pay hike of uniformed personnel before break in December

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Thursday, November 30th, 2017

MANILA, Philippines – The Senate targets to pass the proposed increase in monthly take-home pay of military and other uniformed personnel before the session breaks in December.

Based on the proposed joint resolution of Senate President Aquilino ‘Koko’ Pimentel III, beginning January 1, 2018, the base pay of personnel under the Department of National Defense (DND), Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP), Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), Philippine National Police (PNP), Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) and National Mapping and Resource Information will be doubled.

This means that the lowest ranking soldier which is private; Officer 1 in BJMP and BFP; and PO1 in the PNP who receive P14 to P15,000 will soon receive a base pay amounting to P29,668.

This will be a big help especially to the soldiers.

“This is a reflection of how people represented by Senators appreciate the efforts of the AFP, especially in the performance of our duty..,” Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Chief of Staff Gen. Rey Leonardo Guerrero said.

According to Senator Panfilo Lacson, the proposed joint resolution may likely be approved before the holiday break this December.

Also according to the senator, there is enough budgets particularly from last year’s under spending to fund the salary hike.

The senator also wants to include the retirees in to benefit from the proposed increase.

“Ang tanong lang is, willing ba ang Malacañang to include the retired sector? Kasi sinasabi na ang mga widows ng nag-retire many years ago, ang pension nila applicable 20 years ago,” Lacson said.

(The question is, would Malacañang be willing to include the retired sector? Because the widows of retirees from many years ago say their pension is applicable 20 years ago.)

Lacson seeks to increase the pension of retired personnel from 20 to 50%. – Nel Maribojoc | UNTV News & Rescue

Malacañang-PSC to bounce back on UNTV Cup this Sunday

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Saturday, November 25th, 2017

Malacañang-PSC Kamao’s #21 Eric Dela Cuesta left unchallenged in this lay up during the game with Judiciary Magis on November 19, 2017 at the Pasig City Sports Center for the elimination round of the League of Public Servants, UNTV Cup. Frederick Alvior / Photoville International

Coming from a tough loss against the Judiciary Magis last time, the Palace’s basketball team Malacañang-PSC Kamao looks to regain winning momentum in this Sunday’s bout against the Ombudsman Graft Busters.

Though still having the best record in the league, 4-1, Kamao wants to improve their performance every game.

Coach Luie Gonzales once said, “Siguro, as a coach, sa akin magsisimula yun eh. I need to start siguro ibahin ko muna ang approach sa practice plan. Nandito na tayo sa middle ng season going to the next round medyo malalakas na yung kalaban. Hindi pupwede na mag slow start kami. I need to address that problem.”

(Translation: Maybe as a coach, it should start with me. Maybe I need to start changing my approach on the practice plan. We are already in the middle of the season going to the next round, competition is getting tougher. We can’t afford a slow start.)

Meanwhile, the winless Ombudsman Graft Busters has yet to figure out how to overcome their challenges as a team.

It can be recalled that former professional basketball player, Noynoy Falcasantos has not fielded yet in their games, and the team has been relying on their organic players like Lumague, Lasam, Palacio, Baldonado and others.

In their previous battle, team Ombudsman was dumped by the PDEA Drug Busters by a huge 32 point win, 109-77.

On the second game of the tripple-header, the Senate Defenders will face the DOH Health Achievers.

The Senate baskeball team (3-1) came from a sweet victory over the defending champions PNP Responders (3-1) where in, Jeffry Sanders, Harley Ng, Marlon Legaspi and Garry Sevilla led the team.

Meanwhile, the Health Achievers (1-3) badly need to win to improve their record of the season coming from a 10-point loss against the GSIS Furies.

In the main game, the Judiciary Magis will try to continue winning streak as they face the Jimwell Torion-led DA Food Masters. — UNTV New Media

The four-game-flawless Malacañang-PSC Kamao received its first loss of the season after the Judiciary Magis defeated them on Sunday, November 19 at the Pasig City Sports Center.

Led by former professional basketball player Warren Ybañez, the Magis overturned the winning favor from the Kamao after Vincent John Puno converted two free throw shots, 83-82; and Ybañez for another free throw due to a technical foul given to Kamao’s Joseph Besa, 84-82.

Earlier in the game, the first and the second quarter was dominated by the Judiciary.

It was on the 3rd quarter when Malacañang-PSC started to reign, pouring a total of 28 points led by Vishnu Das Javier, Christian Luanzon and Eric Dela Cuesta and took the lead at the end of the period, 55-53.

The 4th period entered and Malacañang-PSC Kamao was still in control of the game with occasional exchanges of firepower from both teams until the last two minutes of the game when the momentum sided with the Judiciary Magis.

Then on, the Kamao failed to recover.

Best Player of the Game was claimed by Warren Ybañez, Vincent John Puno and Julius Caesar Rabino.

In the other games of the triple-header: the BFP Firefighters continued their winning streak upon punishing the COA Enablers in a high-scoring battle, 132-83.

Firefighters playing coach Gilbert Malabanan led the team with 28 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals with solid back up performances by Jonathan Eguea 14p, Julius Jayona 13p and Roderick Marquez 12p. Three other Firefighters scored 11 points apiece.

Meanwhile, PDEA Drug Busters smacked down the Ombudsman Graft Busters with an 32-point victory, 109-77.

Marlon Basco produced 35 points for PDEA plus 15 points from Jogger Montallana and 14 points from Brillos Rizon.
