PBA OIC attends Gilas practice, reaffirms league's commitment

MANILA, Philippines – PBA officer-in-charge Willie Marcial paid the national team a visit during its practice at the Meralco Gym on Monday, as he sought to reaffirm the league's commitment to the program.

Eleven players were present for Monday's practice, with reigning PBA MVP June Mar Fajardo participating for the first time. Also present were young cadets CJ Perez and Abu Tratter.

"Sabi ko sa kanila, pipilitin ko na every Monday, andito (ako)," said Marcial, who was tabbed to be the league's OIC as it continues to search for a new commissioner.

"Pupunta ako rito every Monday. Basta wala lang mga meeting, talagang pupuntahan ko sila," he added. "Tingnan niyo, masaya kami, para kaming magkaka-barkada, 'di ba? Sabi ko sa kanila, walang problema."

Marcial stressed that the PBA remains fully in support of Gilas Pilipinas, even as it goes through a transition period following the resignation of embattled former commissioner Chito Narvasa.
