While the 2nd placer Malacañang Kamao got P2-M tax-free prize for the cancer patients in Philippine Children Medical Center and the Millennium Sports Support System Association Incorporated.
These top 2 prizes are just a fraction of the total amount of donation prizes (P2,700,000) already given to the rest of the UNTV Cup participating teams for their chosen beneficiaries.
UNTV Cup, the league of public servants, as conceptualized by public service advocate Kuya Daniel Razon aims to promote camaraderie, brotherhood and sportsmanship among the participating government agencies with an aspect of public service through basketball.
Over the years, it has evolved into a more dynamic and exciting tournament giving the participants to play basketball alongside with their idolized professional players and the amount of money given for their chosen charities has tremendously increased with the augmentation from Bro. Eli Soriano from Members Church of God International.
This season, another P1.1-M was added to the prize for the Final 4 teams’ discretion: P500,000 (champion) P300,000 (2nd placer) P200,000 (3rd placer), P100,000 (4th placer).
PNP Chief Ronal Dela Rosa gave appreciation for the league, “From the bottom of my heart, nagpapasalamat ako, in behalf of the PNP, itong pagkakataon na ito na ibinigay sa amin para maipakita ng ating mga kapulisan ang kanilang abilidad iyong kanilang skills sa larangan ng basketball.”
“Kay Kuya Daniel, sagad-sagad na ang pasasalamat natin andami na niyang naibigay na tulong sa amin. Sobra-sobra na po, kaya sana tuloy-tuloy iyong swerte, iyong blessings ni Lord sa kaniya, sa UNTV.”
(From the bottom of my heart I am thankful, in behalf of the PNP, for this opportunity given us for the police to show their basketball skills. To Kuya Daniel, I am exceedingly thankful. You have given a lot of help to us. May the Lord continue blessing you and UNTV.)
Despite the loss, Malacañang Kamao is also thankful for being a part of the charitable basketball league on Philippine TV.
Chairman, Games and Amusement Board and Malacañang Kamao player Abraham Mitra expressed, “We want to take this opportunity to thank you and for bringing us together with our co-workers in the government. Thank you for a very organized league. We hope and pray for the success of the league and for the success and, of course, to serve our people.”
This will be participated by Senate, BOC, Judiciary, AFP and PNP.
According to UNTV Cup Commissioner Fortunato “Atoy” Co these five teams are those who met the requirements: 40 years old and above, all-executive roster etc.
As preview for the UNTV Cup Season 6, President / CEO of BMPI Kuya Daniel Razon expressed optimism as fans can expect more action-packed games to come and more charities will benefit for there will be new teams and bigger prizes.
“From the start ng ating liga na ito, paangat nang paangat. So, we cannot expect for less. With God’s help ay talagang pataas ng pataas yung level nitong ating nagiging laban dito sa ating UNTV Cup. Siguro by the time na nag Season 6 tayo, after ng off season natin, ay talagang mas ibibigay pa ng iba’t-ibang mga teams, yung kanilang best.”
(From the start, UNTV Cup is getting higher and higher. So, we cannot expect for less. With God’s help, the level of competitiveness at UNTV Cup is elevating. Maybe we can expect in Season 6 all the participating teams will give more their best.)

Rookie team PDEA Drug Busters eases to the second round eliminations of the league of public servants, UNTV Cup.
This, as the DOJ Justice Boosters toppled the Ombudsman Graft Busters, 95-73 on Sunday’s triple header.
Based on the league’s point system, the DOJ, Ombudsman and DA Food Masters get eliminated from the league this season, while PDEA reaches the next round.
Meanwhile, Group A’s DOH Health Achievers, COA Enablers and BFP Firefighters also exit the games.
In the AFP-DOH hard court battle, the AFP Cavaliers defeated the DOH Health Achievers 92-71.
With this, the soldiers share the 5-1 win-loss standing with the Senate Defenders in Group A.
And in the GSIS-PNP match, the UNTV Cup crowd saw an impressive win by the GSIS Furies over defending champion PNP Responders 76-68.
GSIS Furies Head Coach Myk Saguiguit said, “Ang will nila, talagang trinabaho nila nang husto. Kasi hindi namin inisip na we’re in sa second round. Sabi ko i-solidify pa natin, maka-tsamba tayo against defending champion PNP.”
(They willed it. They really worked hard for it. We didn’t think that we’re going to the second round. I said to them, “We must solidify ][our performnace]. Who knows, we may actually beat the defending champion, PNP.)
This win catapults the Furies to the third spot in Group A with four games won and two games lost, surpassing the Responders which now has a 3-3 win-loss standing.
PNP Responders Head Coach Erik Samson, “Nahirapan kami. Especially hindi kami gaanong nakadepensa nang maayos doon sa mga one-on-one nila, sa atake nila, at maaga kami nag-penalty.”
(We had a hard time beating them. Especially when we failed to guard them closely on their one-on-one plays, attack plays. And we got into penalty situation early in the game.)
Rene Boy Banzali and James Patrick Abugan were hailed as the best players of the game after bucketing 54 combined points.

Any winner of this match between DOJ Justice Boosters and Ombudsman Graft Busters will not advance to the second round elimination round of UNTV Cup Season 6 (PHOTOVILLE International)
The fate of rookie team Department of Agriculture Food Masters and the PDEA Drug Busters lies on the outcome of the battle between the DOJ Justice Boosters and the Ombudsman Graft Busters on Sunday afternoon at the Olivarez Gymnasium in ParañaqueCity.
Should the Justice Boosters defeat the Graft Busters, there will be a triple-tie among the DOJ, PDEA and DA teams.
And based on the rules of the UNTV Cup point system, PDEA will advance to the next round while the DA will exit the league this season.
But if the Ombudsman beats the DOJ, the Department of Agriculture team will enter the next round based on the win over the other rule.
It should be noted that the DA team won against the PDEA team 104-100 last September 17.
Of the seven teams in Group B this season of the league of public servants, the Judiciary Magis, Malacañang-PSC Kamao and the NHA Builders all with 5 games won and 1 game lost will advance to the second round eliminations.
Meanwhile, the AFP Cavaliers is adamant to clutch its fifth win as the first round eliminations of the UNTV Cup Season 6 comes to an end on Sunday.
The two-time champion is set to take on the DOH Health Achievers in the third game.
The soldiers aim to level with the Senate Defenders which is on the top spot in Group A with a 5-1 win-loss standing.
Last Sunday’s neck-and-neck clash between the AFP and the PNP saw the soldiers triumph over the policemen, 100-92.
Under Group A, the BFP Firefighters, the DOH Health Achievers and the COA Enablers this season did not succeed to ease to the next round of the games. — Bernard Dadis | UNTV News & Rescue
MANILA, Philippines — Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald dela Rosa is set to retire on 21st of January in 2018 when he reaches the mandatory age of retirement of 56 years old.
During a command conference at Malacañang on Tuesday, President Rodrigo Duterte named PNP Deputy Chief for Administration General Ramon Apolinario as the second highest police official who will replace PNP chief Ronald Bato dela Rosa.
However, PNP Public Information Office chief PCSupt. Dionardo Carlos clarified such an announcement is just an impromptu introduction at an event in Cebu where the guest of honor was PDDG. Ramon Apolinario.
“Normally who replaces number one? Let us not make a big issue out of it. It was an impromptu introduction spiel during the program,” said Carlos.
All police star generals are candidates in the position for the highest post in the police institution as long as they are serving in the PNP for at least one year.
If the PNP hierarchy will be followed, Apolinario is next in line to replace General dela Rosa except when the president wants to designate another police official.
In a text message, Gen. Apolinario said that the announcement is not officials and that he would focus first on his duty.
“Hindi pa naman official ‘yun (It’s not official yet). We are waiting for the official announcement so no comment muna ako (yet). Ako’y magfo-focus pa rin sa trabaho ko (I will continue to focus on my job) as Deputy Chief for administration ni (of) Police Chief Director General ‘Bato’ dela Rosa. Kasi marami rin akong mga committees tsaka conferences na-aattendnan (I have many committees and conferences to attend to),” he said. — Lea Ylagan | UNTV News & Rescue
