MANILA, Philippines — It took the Philippine National Police (PNP) Responders four seasons in the league of public servants before finally taking home the championship title in Season 5.

However, the cops failed to defend the title last season, when the Senate Defenders ousted them in the quarterfinals.

At the UNTV Cup Executive Face-off last year, the AFP Cavaliers beat the PNP executive roster in an overtime game.

This time around, the Responders is prepping up a new and stronger lineup to once again win a ticket to the finals of the UNTV Cup Season 7.

On Thursday, the PNP Responders themselves kicked off a basketball competition within the police institution, from which their new players for the next season and the off-season games will be selected.

Hoopster cops from the Manila Police District (MPD), Southern Police District (SPD), Eastern Police District (EPD), Quezon City Police District (QCPD), Northern Police District (NPD) and the national headquarters are among the participants.

The UNTV Cup Executive Face-Off kicks off in may where colonels and generals of the police force will step and battle on the UNTV Cup hardcourt.

“Hopefully we will be able to get [players] with ‘fightiness’ and the most powerful,” said PNP Directorate for Operations PDir. Camilo Cascolan.

“Sana makagawa din kami ng sariling team sa NCRPO, payagan tayo ni Kuya Daniel,” said NCRPO chief PDir. Oscar Albayalde.

(We hope we can also establish our own team in the NCRPO if Kuya Daniel permits.)

Meanwhile, the two-time most valuable player of the league, reveals the team’s main goal for the coming season.

“Kasi nawala kami sa Final 4. Gusto naming maging competitive. Gusto naming makabawi at gusto naming andon kami sa Top 4. Yun ang pinakagoal namin,” said PNP Responder forward Ollan Omiping.

(We were not able to make it to the Final 4. We want to be competitive. We want to bounce back. We want to be in the Top 4. That is our main goal.”

The PNP Responders won P4-million after lifting the championship trophy in Season 5, all for their chosen beneficiaries. — Victor Cosare | UNTV News & Rescue

MANILA, Philippines — At the plenary session on Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon proudly sponsored a resolution congratulating the Senate Defenders for bringing home the championship title in Monday night’s UNTV Cup Season 6 finals game against Malacañang-PSC Kamao.

“Mr. President, the UNTV Cup was conceptualized by Kuya Daniel Razon in 2012 as a charity basketball league dubbed as “Liga ng Mga Public Servants” to better serve the public thru sponsorship camaraderie and health competition sponsored by the Members of Church of God [International] (MCGI) headed by Bro. Eli Soriano,” said Drilon.

Senators Joel Villanueva and Sonny Angara expressed gratitude to their colleagues and employees of the Senate who supported them during the league.

“That four million cash price that we won last night will go straight to Tahanang Mapagpala, Kyth Foundation. These are cancer survivors and Pangarap Foundation,” said Villanueva.

“The fact that we defeated Malacañang Kamao shows that the principle of check and balances is very much alive, Mr. President,” said Angara.

The team’s manager, Senator Ralph Recto even joked about Malacañang-PSC Kamao’s key player, Special Assistant to the President Secretary Christopher “Bong” Go by asking Sen. Drilon, “Would the gentleman know the reason why Mr. Bong Go is interested running for the Senate?”

To which Drilon quipped, “So he can join the Senate Defenders basketball team,” sending everyone in the room laughing.

All senators became co-sponsors of the resolution which was eventually approved by the plenary. — Nel Maribojoc | UNTV News & Rescue
