PHILIPPINE SCHOOL of Business Administration will try to rekindle its glorious past as they participate in the National Capital Region Universities and Colleges of Luzon Athletic Association (NCRUCLAA) against 15 other varsity teams beginning January 17, 2017 at the Cuneta Astrodome. The Jaguars will continue to have basketball legend Philip Cezar in command of the young and promising cast.
Coach Cezar’s team is composed of Christian Daguro, Nathaniel Abayon, Bingbong Agustin, Miguel Alimasa, Mark Anthony Briones, Mark Joseph Estrella, Deniro Gamboa, Johndel Velasco, Michael Viloria, James Medina, John Michael Quiambao and Daevid Siongco. Expect the Jaguars to emulate their coach during his storied playing days and bank heavily on defense to get them far in the tournament.
The Jaguars are no stranger to winning having captured two of the first three titles in the National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) in 1993 and 1995, a league that has since merged with the eight-year old Universities and Colleges of Luzon Athletic Association (UCLAA) to form the NCRUCLAA. Today, several of their successful alumni players have banded together to support the team led by PBA and national team star Jean Marc Pingris.
“Marc promised to provide the team with warmers while his batch mates like MC Caceres and Jonathan Tarronas have agreed to put their business logos on our jerseys,” said assistant coach Joseph Ocampo. “We are grateful for their support and the boys hope to repay their generosity with victories.”
The NCRUCLAA games will be televised on Basketball TV and Solar Sports. For quick updates and information, follow the league’s official social media accounts on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook with the handle @ncruclaa.
