LAGUNA, Philippines — Residents of Biñan witnessed an action-packed UNTV Cup Season 5 triple-header held at Alonte sports arena on Sunday.

In game one, the PNP Responders gunned down the MMDA Black Wolves’ offense, dominating the game from start to finish.

Ollan “The Sniper” Omiping led the Responders towards the 13-point win, 86-47.

For this, the Black Wolves drops down to the bottom spot, with 4 games won and 5 games lost.

The PNP Responders, on the other hand, now has a 7-2 win – loss record.

In the second game, the NHA Builders bulldozed the AFP Cavaliers with final scores 86 – 73.

After the long holiday, NHA’s preparation paid off.

NHA Builders Head Coach Silverio “Benneth” Palad III said, “Pinaghandaan namin lahat ng team, lalo na yung dalawang susunod kasi kailangan naming dumiretso para makapasok sa apat.”

(The whole team prepared for this, most especially the two incoming games because we need to be at the top 4 in the standings to assure advancement to the next round of the tournament.)

The Builders was led by Marvin Mercado who made 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, and Ariel Vitug who buried 25 points and dominated 8 boards.

And in the main game, the BOC Transformers remain on the top spot of the team standings after knocking down the Malacañang Kamao in a neck-and neck battle which ended with 71-70 on the scoreboard.

The rookie team was geared by PBA Legend Kenneth “Captain Marbel” Duremdes and Gherome Ejercito.

Ejercito was able to bury a crucial shot which paved the way to the transformers’ 8th win this season.

The BOC Transformers remains on the top spot while the Malacañang Kamao now has a 5-3 win-loss record. — Bernard Dadis, 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.)

Ombudsman Graft Busters also gained more chances of qualifying to the final four after clobbering GSIS Thunder Furies, 62-42.

AFP in ‘do or die’ game vs DOJ at UNTV Cup

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Friday, June 15th, 2018

FILE PHOTO: Brigadier General Gener Del Rosario (#16) prepares to breach the defense Atty. Homer Alinsug during the game between the Senate Sentinels and AFP Cavaliers on May 27, 2018, at the Pasig City Sports Center for the elimination round of the#UNTVCupOffSeason Executive Faceoff.

 

Games on Sunday, June 17

2pm: GSIS vs Ombudsman
3:30pm: DOJ vs AFP
5pm: Senate vs PNP

Venue: Pasig City Sports Center

 

It’s a do or die game for the off season defending champion AFP Cavaliers against the DOJ Justice Boosters on Sunday at the Pasig City Sports Center.

The AFP needs to fight harder to secure a spot in the eliminations and advance to the playoffs to defend their title.

The Cavaliers are yet to enter the win column after absorbing successive defeats in their last three games.

The Ombudsman Graft Busters, meanwhile, remains in high spirits after tallying their third win.

But they seek to protect their fourth spot to press on to the playoffs by routing GSIS Thunder Furies on Sunday’s first game at 2 p.m.

Ombudsman head coach Ricky Alcantara said they already ramped up their practices by joining exhibition games in some high school basketball team.

“There’s a saying na palaging may una, baka sa amin pa makuha yung unang panalo kaya paghahandaan namin nang husto,” Coach Alcantara said.

(There’s a saying: there’s always a first time. The GSIS might get their first win through us, [we don’t want that to happen] that’s why we are preparing hard for this battle.)

Senate Sentinels, on the other hand, promise to bounce back from their stinging defeat against Ombudsman last week.

The Senate cagers are looking to end PNP Responders’ winning streak in the main game on Sunday at five pm.

“Against PNP, kailangan namin kung ano yung nagpanalo sa amin doon sa tatlo, triplehin naming yung ginawa namin para manalo kami,” Coach Mike Fermin said.

(In this battle with PNP, we need to triple our efforts to win against them.) — Bernard Dadis | UNTV News & Rescue

SAP Bong Go erupts for 44 pts in Malacañang-PSC victory at UNTV Cup

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Monday, June 11th, 2018

Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go fires from the rainbow territory. SAP Bong Go was chosen as the Best Player of the Game after finishing 44 points with five 3-pt shots made during the game between the Malacañang-PSC Kamao and GSIS Thunder Furies on June 10, 2018, at the Pasig City Sports Center for the elimination round of the #UNTVCupOffSeason Executive Faceoff.

Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go produced a total 44 points with five 3-point shots to carry the Malacañang-PSC Kamao to the win column of the UNTV Cup Executive Face-off after beating the GSIS Thunder Furies, 105-79.

With his career-high performance, SAP Bong Go was hailed as the Best Player of the Game.

“Salamat at naka-tsamba po kami for our very first win of the executive season po. At masaya po ako ang daming fans ng UNTV na nandito napa-pump up ang team namin. Congratulations din po sa UNTV management, kay Kuya Daniel Razon, napakagandang ideya po at least nakakalaban po namin lahat ng heroes ng gobyerno,” President Duterte’s special assistant said.

(Thank you and we got lucky in our very first win at the UNTV Cup Executive Face-off. I am happy because there are a lot of UNTV Cup fans who attended, we were pumped up. Also, I would like to congratulate the UNTV Cup management, Kuya Daniel Razon for this [UNTV Cup] is a very good idea, at least we can play with the heroes in the government.)

In the other game, Ombudsman Graft Busters handed the Senate Sentinels its first loss.

Team Ombudsman dominated all the quarters through their tight defense and ending the game with a 15-point gap, 66-51.

Graft Busters Head Coach Ricky Alcantara said, “Ang ginawa lang namin is we adjust doon sa trap nila. Ini-anticipate ko yun eh na gagawin nila yun sa amin. So siguro nakita nila hindi nagwo-work, hinintuan nila kaya kami in return ibinalik lang namin yung ginagawa nila.”

(What we did is to adjust to their trap defense. I already anticipated that they will pull one on us. Maybe they saw that it wasn’t working so they stopped; but in return, we used it against them.)

Senate Head Coach Mike Fermin countered, “We got outrebounded eh… siguro we got outrebounded by 15 plus eh. Yun ang naging difference so offensive rebounds na makuha nila the more chances of scoring, doon kami nagkaroon ng lapses sa rebounding.”

(We got outrebounded… maybe about more than 15 rebounds. That was the difference. They had more offensive rebounds, more chances of scoring. We had lapses in the rebounds.)

Hailed as the Best Players of the Game were Director Nikki Laure with 26 points, 11 rebounds and Atty. Armando Sanchez Jr. with 13 points, 4 rebounds and 4 steals.

And on the PNP-DOJ bout, PNP Responders remained flawless in their record after it defeated the DOJ Justice Boosters, 90-59.

PSupt Joel De Mesa led the policemen with 22 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 steal together with PCSupt Philip Philips’ 18 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 steal.
