What’s up hoopsters? Today you’ll be witnessing history, for this day, January 6th 2008 we will be holding the first ever annual hoops award!
I was supposed to choose my own set of winners but since I haven’t consulted any of the writers and the readers then I figured it should be called the Chrisangelo 2007 Hoops awards and that name would suck. So I decided to wait post an initial entry, wait for your response and create another blog post to determine the winner, cool huh?
Note: To gain more response and thus make this a more formal *pukes* thread, I’m going to post this everywhere, my blogger, my multiply and other forums… I suggest you post this to your blog too.. just don’t forget to put the original url.
Voting ends next Sunday, January 13 2008
So here we go!
Reigning University Games champion Far Eastern University is not taking Manuel L. Quezon University lightly when both teams clash in the opener of the Fil-Oil Flying-V National Collegiate Champions Cup today at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.
Fresh from beating the Ateneo Blue Eagles in the University Games final in Bacolod City, the Tamaraws are favored to dispose of the Stallions in their high noon encounter.
But FEU coach Glenn Capacio said they are not going to keep their guards down, citing MLQUâ€™s great basketball tradition.
“I havenâ€™t seen them play, but I know the Stallions are made up of veteran players who can pose big problems,” said Capacio.
The Stallions, who won the Colleges and Universities Sports Association (CUSA) title for the sixth time, will be making their debut in the 16-team knockout tournament.
MLQU team owner Victoria Chan said they are happy to play against champion teams and are eager to show their brand of play.
“If we play well tomorrow, we have a big chance of beating the Tamaraws,” said Chan who also acts as team manager.
Capacio said the Tamaraws barely had rest since being eliminated by the University of Santo Tomas Tigers in the playoff for the Final 4 berth in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP). Full Story>>>
