TNT to learn from 1st loss, says Uichico

August 27, 2016

TNT head coach Jong Uichico. Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netTNT had the start worthy of envy in the PBA Governors’ Cup when the KaTropa won six straight right off the gate.

On Friday, however, everything fell to the ground when the upstart Mahindra gave TNT its first taste of defeat in a 107-104 squeaker Friday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

TNT is still atop the standings with a 6-1 record but the Enforcer have dented its once impenetrable armor.

KaTropa head coach Jong Uichico, though, said the loss is natural and it should be a learning experience for the team....

No offer for Castro from China

August 26, 2016

Jayson Castro of TNT KaTropa. PBA Media BureauMANILA, Philippines - Star guard Jayson Castro’s contract with TNT KaTropa has been extended up to the end of the PBA Governors Cup and it’s unlikely he’ll move to the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) next season despite speculation an offer to play as an Asian import may be tendered.

Castro’s agent Danny Espiritu said the other day no offer has been made by any CBA team. Under CBA rules, only the last five finishers are allowed to enlist an Asian import aside from two “regular” out-of-Asia reinforcements. There are 20 teams in the CBA and last season, the last five clubs were Jiangsu, Jilin, Tianjin, Bayi and Foshan. Since Bayi plays without imports as the military entry of the People’s Liberation Army, the sixth to the last finisher – Beikong – will be given the privilege of signing an Asian import in the Rockets place.

Former Gilas head coach Rajko Toroman of Serbia was recently hired to call the shots for Tianjin so he could make a bid for Castro. Last campaign, the CBA started its regular season Oct. 31 and ended Feb. 5 with the playoffs beginning Feb. 15 and ending March 20. Every season, eight teams qualify for the playoffs. The quarterfinals and semifinals are best-of-five series while the finals is a best-of-seven affair....

“It’s not about how you start but how you finish.”...
