Tautuaa, TNT bench need to step up in Governors' Cup

July 01, 2016

The Texters already loaned two of its stars, Jayson Castro and Ranidel de Ocampo to national duty, while Larry Fonacier, Kelly Williams and Matt Ganuelas-Rosser are still in the injury list.

“We were telling them (bench players) to be ready because this could be their chance while they (injured players) recover,” team manager Villavincencio told FOX Sports. 

Tautuaa was at the forefront of the Texters’ offense during their tune-up against Ginebra last Wednesday....

PBA, SBP meet on Fiba sked, Gilas

June 22, 2016

MANILA, Philippines – The initial meeting between likely SBP incoming president Al Panlilio and PBA commissioner Chito Narvasa to brainstorm how to approach the new FIBA schedule of international competition was set to take place last Thursday but it was postponed for tonight with both parties agreeing to move forward in finding a win-win solution.

The problem is the new FIBA qualifying process for the World Cup and Olympics cuts through the PBA schedule and if PBA players continue to be tapped for Gilas, there will be disruptive repercussions.

Even without the new FIBA schedule in effect, the PBA has made major adjustments in its calendar. This year, the PBA has postponed the start of the Governors Cup to July and if Gilas makes it to Rio, it will be delayed further. Another adjustment was moving the annual draft from August to Oct. 31. Once the new FIBA schedule kicks in, the PBA will make more adjustments unless the decision is to stock the national team only with non-PBA players....

Uytengsu bared his “win-win” solution on the eve of today’s meeting between SBP officials and PBA commissioner Chito Narvasa amid fears the league might be faced with a talent-starved pool in the coming Draft.

Basketball godfather Manny V. Pangilinan, the outgoing chair of the SBP, earlier said they would reactivate the Cadet program by signing up the country’s blue-chip amateurs to exclusive contracts that would make them available anytime for international competitions....
