With this victory, the policemen led by PNP Chief Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, who personally watched the game, ended the 4 season–title drought and received the P4-M tax-free prize for their chosen beneficiary, Samahang Masang Pilipino International Foundation Incorporated.

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.”

Meanwhile, an off-season mini-tournament will start by the month of May wherein the top officials / executives will play this time.

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.”

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 — The almost seven-month vocal battle of the biggest online singing competition Wishcovery concluded Tuesday night.

Fans of Wishful 5 Carmela Ariola, Hacel Bartolome, Kimberly Baluzo, Louie Anne Culala and Princess Sevillena flocked to the Big Dome to support their bets in the grand finals.

The scores of the first two rounds were computed from their last Wish Bus performance.

For round 3, the Wishfuls sang a medley of their previous performances but the challenge was to make foreign reactors Cicero Oca and Richie Rich appreciate OPM songs.

The next round showcased the Wishful 5’s ability to sing with a group as they perform an original composition of Wishcovery resident reactor Jungee-neer.

For the last part of the contest, the grand finalists gave their all in their solo performances.

Cavite’s Hacel was hailed the competition’s fourth runner-up who received P100,000.

Batanguena Wishful Carmela is the third runner-up winning a cash prize of P100,000.

Second runner-up is Bulacan’s Louie Anne taking home a total of P300,000.

Receiving half a million pesos is first runner-up Kimberly of Bicol and the first-ever grand winner is Metro Manila’s bet and wildcard pick, Princess.

She won P2-million worth of cash and contract, a house and lot and a brand new car.

Princess will also fly to New York for a musical training and a makeover.

“Thank you, Lord. Thank you so much. Big blessing talaga. Hindi talaga dapat sumuko. Dapat laban lang ng laban hanggang maabot mo ‘yung pangarap mo,” said Princess.

(Thank you, Lord. Thank you so much. This is really a big blessing. We really should not give up. We should keep on fighting until we reach our dream.)

Star Music also sees great potential in the grand champion.

“Sobrang deserving ng winner natin and I’m very excited to work with her and talaga she would be the next big diva,” said Star Music audio content head Jonathan Manalo.

(The winner is really deserving and I’m very excited to work with her and she would really be the next big diva.)

Meanwhile, aspiring singers should get ready for a bigger Wishcovery next season.

“Naka-ready na ‘yung Season 2 ng Wishcovery at mas malaki ang plano natin para dito. Hinihintay pa natin ang tamang panahon para i-reveal ito pero in the meantime ‘yun munang ating mga nanalo at especially yung Wishful 5 ‘yung kanilang kontrata sa atin, we will start to fulfill ‘yun. Ngayon ay binibigyan natin ng concentration ang pag manage sa kanila in collaboration with Star Music,” said Wishcovery originator, BMPI Pres. and CEO Kuya Daniel Razon.
