    On Tuesday, March 21, 2017, the last game of the UNTV Cup Season 5 concluded at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum, Quezon City.

    PNP Responders defeated the Malacañang Kamao in full control to claim the championship title with score 68-55.

    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.”

    (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.)

    MANILA, Philippines — For the first time since they joined the UNTV Cup, the NHA Builders defeated the two-time champion Judiciary Magis last Sunday with the final score 95-87.

    This is why the Builders are so happy.

    Coach Bennet Palad said, “Actually, sabi ko hindi tayo mananalo kung kanya-kanya. Kasi kung kanya-kanya tayo, ma-open tayo, mag e-errors. Ngayon sabi ko magtulungan lalo na yung Tolomia , yung Camaso. So kung hindi mo tao yun at libre kailangan mo puntahan yun. So it’s more team effort kami ngayon at yung puso nila ngayon hindi sila bumigay.”

    (Actually, I told them that we cannot win if we don’t work together. We will be open to errors if the players don’t play as a team. I told them, we must help in guarding them, especially, Chester Tolomia and Don Camaso. Even if they are not assigned to you, you should also help in containing them. Now, it’s more of team effort and their hearts didn’t falter.)

    Meanwhile Coach Joey Yabut of Judiciary Magis expressed, “Unang una naging problema namin yung depensa, yung tao-tao kasi nakakalusot sila. Saka yung transition offense nila, doon kami medyo nahirapan sa kanila, yung takbuhan.”

    (Firstly, we had problems with our defense. Our man-to-man defense was not that effective. Their transition offense really punished us.)

    In the beginning of the battle, the Magis dropped three consecutive three-pointers from Warrane Ybanez, Don Camaso and Chester Tolomia for them to be ahead in the first quarter 23-20.

    But the NHA Builders did not back down, they quickly took the lead early in the second quarter, 28-25. And they managed to maintain the momentum to their favor until the end of the 2nd period, 46-38.

    NHA’s lead reached 14 points but Judiciary was able to narrow down the gap to 6 points.

    In the last period, the Magis had a 7-0 run to take the lead of the game, 69-68.

    They even held the lead until 74-71, after a three-point shot from Chester Tolomia.

    But NHA was quick to recover. Former MVP Antonio Lustestica Jr. responded with three consecutive field goals from the rainbow country.

    Then on, the Builders controlled the momentum for the rest of the game.

    Lustestica (25pts) and John Derrick Dizon (18pts) were both hailed as the best player of the game.

    While Chester Tolomia (25pts), W. Ybanez (17pts), C. Camaso (16pts) led the Judiciary Magis.

    Earlier in the tripleheader, Malacanan-PSC Kamao listed their 2nd win of the season by defeating the DOJ Justice Boosters, 91-75.
