NBC to hold tilt for juniors, too

MALABON City Mayor Tito Oreta has provided additional boost to the National Basketball Conference by hosting the first NBC Juniors Cup at the newly built Malabon Sports Center starting on April 30.

“I have always supported programs for the youth since I assumed office,” said Mayor Oreta. “By hosting this prestigious event, I’m sure I would be able to keep the youths away from drugs,v ices and other illegal activities.”

NBC President Nathaniel “Tac” Padilla, the national pistol champion since 1978 who is based in Malabon, thanked Mayor Oreta for his support.

“Our members are definitely happy about this positive development,” said Padilla. “I have requested the different teams to hold tryouts shortly in order to form competitive squads.”

The league is open to players aged 18 years and below and who must not turn 19 until June 30, 2007. It will run until June 2.

Each team will be composed of 15 players, 10 of whom must be residents of the city they represent.

Deadline for submission of lineup is April 1.

According to NBC secretary general Tito Palma, Basketball TV has agreed to televise some of the NBC Juniors Cup games.
