    first game will be the traditional defending champion vs host school. for the second game, IDK. maybe maybe the 1st runner up against the 2nd runner up.

    So this is will be the third (and final?) year that Sports will cover the league. May negotiations na ba na nagaganap regarding contract renewal or bids from other network(s)?

    NCAA sets four-day week schedule to avoid another long-drawn-out basketball tournament

    THE NCAA will hold seven seniors games a week for Season 90 to avoid another long-drawn-out basketball tournament.

    Season 90 of the country's oldest collegiate league unfolds on June 28, with defending champion San Beda facing Jose Rizal at 12 p.m. and last year's runner up Letran taking on San Sebastian at 2 p.m.

    The 10-team league held six games a week last season, resulting in an extended basketball tournament, starting in late June and ending in mid-November, already the second semester in most schools.

    NCAA Management Committee chair Paul Supan of host Jose Rizal said on Thursday they will now hold one game on Saturdays plus the regular two-game schedule Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

    “We've added a Saturday game so as to address the issue from last year when our season reached as long as November. This is basically to shorten the season a bit,” said Supan.

    Apart from adding one game a week, Supan said they've also changed the time schedule of the seniors games at 12 p.m. and 2 p.m., much earlier than the mid-afternoon start in the previous season. Juniors matches will be held 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. The Saturday game is set at 12:30 p.m.

    The league board and television partner TV5 have agreed in principle to show all games live, with the first games being shown on its free sports channel AksyonTV and the Saturday and second games simultaneous on AksyonTV and TV5.

    “These changes were already agreed upon by the league and TV5 and we're happy with it,” said Supan.

  • San kaya venue ng opening? Maybe sa MOA Arena?
  • AltarBoy^_^AltarBoy^_^ PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    San Juan Arena majority ng games, I don't think we can afford to put a lot of games in MOA Arena. Most probably Final Four and Finals lang ang ilalagay dun or sa Araneta, depending on the demand for tickets.

    Either MOA or Smart Araneta ang pwedeng venues kapag San Beda at Letran ang magkikita uli sa Finals as they have proven their love for their teams time and again. As for the rest of the schools, it's speculative. :smokin:

    Vigilant NCAA enforces tighter security policy to avoid repeat of Dysam shooting incident

    From: Karlo Sacamos

    The NCAA hopes to avoid unfortunate incidents, like the traumatic shooting incident involving a cager last year as the 90th season of the league opens shop next week at the Mall of Asia Arena.

    Almost a year after former Letran guard Franz Dysam and his girlfriend were ambushed after a game, policy board president Dr. Vincent Fabella of host Jose Rizal University stressed the safety of all involved in the country’s oldest collegiate organization is the priority.

    “The security of the players, the students, and everyone who watch the NCAA is one of the most important issues of the policy board,” Fabella said on Monday during the press launch of the league’s ninth-decade anniversary.

    Although he admitted there have yet been changes to security policies, the JRU president assured patrons the league is prepared to handle those types of incidents better.

    “What we have done is we have reviewed the guidelines,” Fabella said. “Usually, we address the issue when it happens. When something happens, it’s usually because of a lapse in security. It has nothing to do with the policy.”

    “But we continue to be vigilant,” he was quick to add. “We try to do our best to protect the welfare of the students, the alumni, and the parents."

    Meanwhile, the rosters of all the basketball squads in the juniors and seniors division have been released and Fabella assured all the players are eligible to play.

    “Every year, we seem to be more strict on eligibility and criteria to make sure that when players come in, and represent themselves to the universities, the records are complete and accurate para hindi nagkakagulo later on."

    NCAA matches to finally reach wider television audience as TV5 set to air games live

    From: Karlo Sacamos

    EXPECT the upcoming NCAA men’s basketball tournament to finally reach a wider television audience as TV5 is set to telecast more games of Season 90 set to unfold on June 28.

    Unlike last year when most of the matches were shown on AksyonTV that has drawn flak for its limited reach and poor signal, the league’s television partner Sports5 announced that it will now air more games on the free channel TV5, which also broadcasts the PBA games.

    “We’re going to make the NCAA available to a very huge audience with great reach,” Sports5 head Chot Reyes said. “We’ve been able to deliver great ratings for the PBA, record-breaking television ratings, so hopefully we are able to replicate that with the NCAA.”

    TV5 hit a record average of almost 5.4 million viewers (53.7 percent audience share in the National Urban TV Audience Measurement) at the peak of Game Six of the Philippine Cup Finals between San Mig Coffee and Rain or Shine last February.

    Now, Sports5 hopes to do the same for the country’s oldest collegiate league.

    Under the new setup, all games will be telecast live, with the 2 p.m. matches on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays to shown on AksyonTV, and the 4 p.m. games on M-W-F seen on both TV5 and AksyonTV.

    The lone 2:30 p.m. Saturday games will also be simulcast live on both TV5 and Aksyon TV.

    The first week of competition follows the same setup, but with earlier timeslots. The first games on July 2 and 4 are set at 12 noon, while the second games are slated at 2 p.m.

    “Hopefully this will lead to a slam-bang record-breaking season,” said Reyes, who added the TV partner will also telecast the volleyball and cheerleading competitions, among others.

    AksyonTV is on UHF free TV channel 41 in Metro Manila, and channel 29 in Cebu and Davao; and also on cable: channel 59 on SkyCable, channel 78 on Destiny Cable, and channel 1 on Cignal.

    Livestreaming is also available at ncaa.sports5.ph.

    NCAA to hold All-Star basketball game for the first time

    From: From the wires

    THE NCAA will hold an All-Star basketball game for the first time in league history to highlight its 90th season.

    The basketball tournament comes off the wraps on Saturday at the MOA Arena in Pasay City and the All-Star game will be played Aug. 16, after the first round of eliminations.

    The proceeds will go to a charitable institution.

    "We've decided to hold it not just to encourage players to play better but also to raise funds for charity," said NCAA Management Committee chair Paul Supan of host Jose Rizal yesterday in yesterday's PSA Forum at Shakey's Malate.

    “I think it’s about time that we hold one after all these years. The players and the NCAA community deserve it,” added Supan.

    San Beda begins its drive for five straight titles as it clashes Jose Rizal University at 1 p.m. on opening day, and last year's runner-up Letran will play perennial contender San Sebastian at 3 p.m.

    This season will also feature Arellano U as the league's eighth regular member after San Beda, Letran, San Sebastian, Perpetual Help, St. Benilde, Jose Rizal and Mapua Institute of Technology.

    Emilio Aguinaldo and Lyceum seek to achieve the same status with solid showing not just in basketball but in other sports as well.

    "We're happy to be regular members and we will try to improve each season," said Arellano representative Peter Cayco, whose Chiefs placed fourth in the overall title race in their fifth year in the league.

    St. Benilde’s is looking to improve its ninth place finish in basketball as it tries to retain the overall crown.

    "We're optimistic of our chances of retaining the overall title," said St. Benilde board representative Dax Castellano.

    NCAA to evaluate probes EAC, Lyceum at the end of season
    June 25, 2014 2:39pm


    The NCAA will evaluate the performance of Emilio Aguinaldo College and Lyceum of the Philippines University at the end of the upcoming season to determine if the two probationary schools deserve to finally become regular members, starting 2015-16.

    EAC is on its sixth, while Lyceum is on its third and final probationary year in the country’s oldest collegiate league. Both schools look to follow in the footsteps of new regular member Arellano, which joined the league at the same year as EAC, but gained the nod ahead.

    “If they comply with the requirements required of probationary school to be elevated to regular-member status, ‘dun natin malalaman,” management committee chairman Paul Supan said on Tuesday in the Philippine Sportswriters’ Association (PSA) Forum.

    According to the Jose Rizal University ManCom representative, participation - and a competitive showing - in all sporting events, as well as knowledge and compliance of league rules are among the factors to be considered.

    So far, EAC and Lyceum have been taking part in all events since it became probationary members.

    “We’ll do our best para hindi sila mabigyan ng dahilan na hindi kami gawing regular,” Lyceum’s ManCom representative and athletic director, Hercules Callanta, said last week.

    One school that seems to face a tougher climb back to the league is Philippine Christian University.

    PCU was involved in an eligibility scandal that resulted in its suspension in 2006. After returning in Season 84 in 2008, the Taft-based school has since taken an indefinite leave of absence.

    “Based on our last discussion with them, they need to re-apply to regain entry,” Supan said.

    PCU needs to file an application letter and secure an endorsement from a current regular member to re-apply.

    If and when the former NCAA general champion gets reinstated, it is still uncertain whether the school will regain its regular status or would have to serve probation all over again, Supan said.

    “It will depend on future discussion.”

    It appears PCU’s return won’t happen any time soon.

    “For now, we’re okay with 10 schools,” Supan said. - Karlo Sacamos, SPIN

    NCAA Season 90 opens with champion San Beda facing host JRU; Letran battles San Sebastian

    The oldest collegiate league in the country enters its 90th season with four-time defending champion San Beda clashing with host Jose Rizal University to tip off the NCAA basketball action on Saturday.

    The opening ceremonies of the NCAA at Mall of Asia Arena begin at 11:30 a.m. with live coverage over TV5.

    Host JRU promises a “grand” program with “full of surprises” as the league carries the theme “Today’s Heroes, Tomorrow’s Legends” for its 90th year.

    “We’re very excited about the opening. We will be introducing some technology and visuals that have never been seen before,” JRU President Vincent Fabella said. “We have some surprises (in terms) of visuals, thematics. We will see something grand.”

    In the first game at 1 p.m., San Beda starts its quest for a fifth straight championship against JRU. With the core of last year’s lineup still intact led by Ola Adeogun, Baser Amer and Art Dela Cruz, the Boyet Fernandez-coached Red Lions begin the new season as a favorite to retain their crown.

    The Heavy Bombers, coached by Vergel Meneses, are hoping to start its campaign on a high note after settling for an eighth place finish last season.

    Rivals Letran and San Sebastian tangle in the second game at 3 p.m. in a battle of teams which are hoping to surpass their performances last season.

    With reigning Most Valuable Player and now PBA player Raymond Almazan out of the lineup, the Knights are leaning on the services of small but terrible guard Mark Cruz as they try to erase the memories of their finals loss to San Beda last year.

    After making the final four last season, the Stags are relying on the production of guards Jamil Ortuoste and CJ Perez who are both coming off impressive league debuts.
