FIBA coach lauds revival
of NBA games in Bacolod


Former University of St. La Salle point guard Ricky Magallanes, who is now based in the US and a registered FIBA coach, said he is glad for the revival of the Negros Basketball Association games in Bacolod City.

In his social media account, Magallanes cited those who made it possible for the league’s comeback after years of hiatus.

"NBA is one of the pillars for most Bacolodnon basketball players. I hope this is the new beginning of 2nd comeback and not the last. Seeing the pictures of 2018 NBA opening flashes back to my memory the competition and the players during our time," Magallanes posted on his facebook account.

Through the pictures of the NBA games posted on social media by his friends and former teammates, Magallanes was able to get a glimpse of the ongoing rivalries among the competing teams in the league.

The NBA President's Cup which opened April 8 is played on weekends and holidays.

The nine competing teams will play in a single round robin elimination, knock out quarterfinal and semifinal format.

The top two teams will have a twice to beat advantage in the semifinals. Number 3 and 6 and number 4 and 5 teams will play a knockout quarterfinals.

The winner between 3 and 6 goes up against number 1 and the 4-5 survivor will challenge number 2.

Leading at 2-0 card is Red House Taiwan Shabu Shabu/UNO-R while NOPSSCEA champion Colegio de Sta. Ana de Victorias/Silver Dragon is at 1-1 losing to UNO-R in the opening game.*
