PNP selects players for UNTV Cup Season 7, Executive Face-Off rosters

by UNTV   |   Posted on Friday, April 6th, 2018

The opening ceremony of a basketball league within the different police districts in Metro Manila

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

Senate a step closer to UNTV Cup trophy

Senate Defenders is just one win away from getting the championship trophy since winning the first game in the best of three series of the UNTV Cup season 6 finals last Sunday at the Pasig City Sports Center.

The Defenders piled up huge lead as much as over 20 points against the Kamao with 77-62 at the final buzzer.

Senate’s team defense has crippled the Malacañang-PSC offensively for most of the ball game.

Jeffry Sanders was hailed as the best player of the game with 13 points, 3 rebounds, 3 blocks and 1 steal.

Senate Defenders’ Head Coach Mike Fermin said, “[Our win] was a collective effort specially on the defensive side. So, credit goes to the players, they played well, they executed the plan properly.”

While Senator Sonny Angara added, “Pasalamat kami sa Senate fans, we had a good game dahil dala din kami noong energy ng crowd. Congrats to our coach, to our players. Magaling din yung nilaro ng kabila.”

(We thank the Senate fans, we had a good game because the energy of the crowd boosted us. Congratulations also to our coach, to our players. The other team also played good.)

Senator Joel Villanueva also expressed, “I have to give it to my team mates, to the entire team, sa coaching staff namin talagang lahat nagsasakripisyo, lahat more than willing to walk etxra mile para makuha itong victory na ito.”

(I have to give credit to my teammates, to the entire team, to our coaching staff. They really sacrificed. All are more than willing to walk the extra mile to get this victory.)

Present on the venue to support the Team Senate, were the staff, the beneficiaries and the minority floor leader Senator Franklin Drilon.

“Ako po’y narito para sumuporta sa UNTV at sa mga teams at lalo na po sa ating mga beneficiaries, congratulations po,” the senator stated.

(I am here to support UNTV [Cup] and all the teams and most specially to the beneficiaries, congratulations po.)

Meanwhile on the battle for 3rd, the AFP Cavaliers defeated the NHA Builders, 85-84.

On the first half of the ball game, the Cavaliers just lead by 3 points, 44-41.

But the men in uniform exploded in the 3rd quarter, 74-55.

The Builders counter attacked in the last quarter to close the gap to just 1 point down to the final buzzer with a final three-point shot from Alvin Vitug.

NHA Head Coach Silverio Palad III said, “Medyo kinapos, lumamang sila disinueve, hinabol namin… yung intensity nawala kasi kaya lumubo.. so noong nagkroon na ng intensity wala na eh naubusan ng oras.”

(We fell short, the AFP was able to lead by 19 points so we tried to catch up… we lost our intensity that’s why the lead bloated… but when we gained intensity, we ran out of time.)

Pro-baller-turned soldier, Boyet Bautista was hailed as the best player of the game with 12 points, 4 steals, 1 rebound and 1 assist.

Baustista said, “Napakaganda pa rin yung natapos namin nanalo kami. Then, maganda pa rin nakapagbigay kami ng magandang regalo sa benificiaries namin.”

(It’s good that we got to end the season with a win. Then, it’s also good that we can donate our cash prize to our beneficiary.)

The Cavaliers received P1,000,000 for their chosen beneficiary AFP – Educational Benefit System Office and P200,000 for the team.

The Builders, on the other hand, received P500,000 for NHA Provident Fund Association and P100,000 for the team.

The game 2 of the best of 3 finals series will be held on May 12, Monday at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

Should the Senate Defenders win again, they would get the top prize of P4,000,000 for their beneficiaries and P500,000 for the team, while Malacañang-PSC Kamao would receive P2,000,000 for their beneficiaries and P300,000 for the team.

All prizes are tax-free.

But should the Kamao win, they will force a do-or-die Game 3 on May 19, Monday at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum. —  Bernard Dadis | UNTV News & Rescue

AFP, NHA to battle for 3rd place at UNTV Cup Finals

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Thursday, March 1st, 2018

Fire power vs fire power, youth vs experience and the equally desire to donate more to their chosen charities will be the narrative of the knockout battle for 3rd place between the former two-time champion AFP Cavaliers and the young and dynamic NHA Builders on Sunday, March 4 at the UNTV Cup Season 6 Finals. (Paul Junel Aquino / Photoville International)


UNTV Cup Finals Schedule

Game 1: March 4 – Pasig City Sports Center

Game 2: March 12 – Smart-Araneta Coliseum

Game 3: March 19 – Smart-Araneta Coliseum (in case needed)


After failing to beat their opponents (Senate and Malacañang-PSC) during the semifinals at the league of public servants, UNTV Cup, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Cavaliers and the National Housing Authority (NHA) Builders will face off on Sunday, March 4 at the Pasig City Sports Center for a knock out battle for 3rd place.

Winner of the KO battle or the third placer will get to donate P1,000,000 to their chosen charity plus P200,000 for the team for a total of P1,200,000 tax free.

While the fourth placer or 3rd runner up will get to donate P500,000 to their chosen charity plus P100,000 for the team for a total of P600,000 prize money, tax free.

The former two-time champion AFP Cavaliers has again chosen as their beneficiary the AFP Educational Benefit System Office (AFP-EBSO) or the scholarship program for the children of men in uniform.

The NHA Builders on the other hand, nominated as their chosen charity the NHA Provident Fund Association, Inc. which aids the dependents of the bureau’s deceased employees.

Though they gave their all with their respective opponents during the semis, coaches Sonny Manucat and Benneth Palad admits clear loss.

“Tingin ko breaks of the game. Nandoon naman, bandang huli bumigay… breaks of the game,” AFP Cavaliers’ Head Coach Sonny Manucat said.

(I think it’s really the breaks of the game. We were there [winning the game] but unfortunately, we fell short in the end… breaks of the game.)

NHA Builders Head Coach Silverio “Bennet” Palad III disclosed, “Actually, kulang kami sa player. Wala si [Marvin] Ladia. Injury si Alvin Vitug. Ang Chris Santos ko hindi pwede maglaro. Nasira ang momentum namin.”

(Actually, we’re shorthanded on players. Marvin Ladia can’t play, Alvin Vitug is injured. Chris Santos can’t play too. We just lost our momentum.)

Along with the deciding game on the UNTV Cup Sunday games is the start of the best of three finals series between the Senate Defenders and Malacañang-PSC Kamao.

A classic series is expected for this season’s championship saga as both of the UNTV Cup veteran teams are equally hungry for the title and also both being defense-oriented.

The champion gets P4,000,000 for its chosen charity and P500,000 for their team, totaling P4.5 million tax free.

While the 2nd best gets P2,000,000 for its beneficiary and P300,000 for the team, totaling P2.3 million tax free.

All in all, the play for charity league of public servants, conceptualized by public service advocate, Dr. Daniel Razon, and supported by Bro. Eli Soriano of MCGI will roll out P9.6 million tax free prices while the 10 non-winners team will also receive P100,000 each for donation to their beneficiaries. — UNTV New Media
