In the first two quarters, the policemen dominated the game led by Olan Omiping, Japeth Cabahug and Anton Tolentino with half time score 52-47.

But in the third quarter, things started to turnaround in favor of the armed forces producing a 33-pt quarter score compared to just 21 PNP points.

Cavaliers’ Jerry Lumongsod, Jeffry Quiambao, Boyet Bautista, and Roger Araneta were among the frontliners who controlled the situation until the final buzzer sounded with final tally of 100-92.

In the other games, the Judiciary Magis defeated PDEA Drug Busters, 126-82.

The overwhelming victory was led by the former professional basketball players, Chester Tolomia-24p, Warren Ybanez-23p, Don Camaso-15p.

Justice Midas Marquez also played a season-best with 14 points for the Magis.

On the other side Robert Sanz, Brillos Rizon, Marlon Basco and Emerson Rosales shone for Team PDEA.

Meanwhile, the last quarter rally of the Torion-less DA Food Masters fell short as the NHA had built a fortified wall in the earlier quarters.

The Builders added another win in their ranking with final score 87-81 against the Food Masters.

Former MVP Antonio Lustestica and Marvin Mercado led the team with 16 points a piece.

While the Department of Agriculture was carried by Christian Dematera with 27 points and Marvin Martinez with 21 points.

Ombudsman claims twice to beat advantage in UNTV Cup Offseason playoffs

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

Together with Graft Investigation and Prosecution Office Armando Sanchez Jr (#23), Assistant Special Prosecutor III Jorge Espinal (#10) was hailed as the Best Players of the Game leading the Ombudsman Graft Busters with 36 points, 12 rebounds and 9 steals combined in defeating the Judiciary Magis by a point, 55-54.

Ombudsman Graft Busters claimed twice to beat advantage in the off-season playoffs after narrowly routing Judiciary Magis, 55-54, in a cardiac game on Sunday at the Pasig City Sports Center.

The victory allowed the Ombudsman to keep its top two spot while Judiciary fell to the third place, sharing it with Senate Sentinels, which is currently holding 4-2 win-loss record.

Jorge Espinal and Armando Sanchez are the best players of the game, finishing combined 36 points to jack up score after key player, director Nikki Laure, was forced to step back during first quarter due to an injury.

Graft Busters Head Coach Ricky Alcantara said, “You know naman na si Director Nikki yung talagang bumubuhat sa opensa namin. So as I’ve said sa first half sabi ko wag nating sayangin ginawa ni Nikki. Let’s offer this game to him.”

(You know how Director Nikki is, he really lifts the team so as I’ve said, in the first half, I told the players let us not waste Nikki’s efforts, let’s offer this game to him.)

Meanwhile, off season reigning champion AFP Cavaliers finally claim its first win by ending GSIS Thunder Furies’ campaign in the league, 92-55.

LT COL Egverr Jonathan Abutin and LT COL Julius Cesar Paulo’s tandem lifted the AFP with 17 points, claiming best players title.

The Cavaliers has 1-5-win loss record and still has one elimination game to play.

DOJ Justice Boosters, on the other hand, crash out for the rest of the off season though they remain in high spirits.

Head Coach Noli Mejo explains they were able to defeat Malacañang-PSC Kamao in their last elimination match, 85-81, before finally bidding farewell to the game.

DOJ Head Coach Noli Mejo said, “Instruction ko sa kanila is kailangan pa ring manalo dito sa last game (I told them we still need to win the last game).”

“Hindi ibig sabihin na hindi ka na mag qu-qualify hindi ka na maglalaro ng maayos, we have to give it our all,” acting Prosecutor General Richard Anthony Fadullon said.

(Not being able to qualify for the game doesn’t mean we should slack off. We have to give it our all.)

Atty. Nonilon Tagalicud and Atty. Charlie Guhit are the best players for bucketing respective 22 and 14 points.

Kamao’s main gunner, Special Assistant to the President Christopher ‘Bong’ Go, meanwhile drizzles with 41 points, including nine from the rainbow country.

SAP Bong Go said, “Congratulations po sa DOJ ang ganda ng laban at least palitan yung lamang pero breaks of the game napunta po sa kanila.”

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

Games on Sunday, June 10
2pm: Ombudsman vs Senate
3:30pm: Malacañang-PSC vs GSIS
5pm: PNP vs DOJ

Venue: Pasig City Sports Center


Senate Sentinels vow to keep the lead along with the PNP Responders in the ongoing UNTV Cup Off Season Executive Face-Off elimination rounds.

Senate now holds the second spot with 3-0 win-loss record while responders top the standings with four wins.

Sentinels eye to score their fourth straight victory by clobbering Ombudsman Graft Busters at  Sunday’s first game, 2 pm at the Pasig City Sports Center.

Its head coach, Mike Fermin, promised to ramp up defense plays after eking out a 79-77 win over the defending Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Cavaliers last May 27.

“Prepare lang kami ulit, maraming kailangang ayusin. We need to review the tape , kailangang ayusin yung mga lapses especially sa defense side ang daming lapses,” Coach Mike Fermin said.

(We just have to prepare again. We need to fix some things, we need to review the tape to fix the lapses especially in the defense side.)

The Ombudsman, meanwhile, is determined to score another win to climb up from its top 4 ranking, next to Judiciary Magis, which will serve as their ticket to play offs.

“Like we did sa mga previous game namin, kung ano yung tendency ng mga kalaban namin kung papaano namin i-ka-counter opensa nila, depensa nila. Saka isa sa I work ko ngayon right now yung stamina namin, dahil nakita ko yun lang yung kulang,” Coach Ricky Alcantara said.

(Like what we did in our previous games, we study how to counter the tendencies of our opponents, their offense and defense. And right now, I am working on the stamina of the team as I saw it as one of the deficiencies.)

Of the eight executive teams, only four will advance to the plays offs after eliminating those in the fifth to eighth ranks. — Bernard Dadis | UNTV New & Rescue
