THE CEBU Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi) made history yesterday as it became one of the first 15 official members and stakeholders of the BAP-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas.

This was made official yesterday during the board meeting of the BAP-SBP at the PLDT building in Makati City, which was presided over by president Manny V. Pangilinan and attended by the different trustees including Cebu City councilor Raul “Yayoy” Alcoseba and Elmer “Boy” Cabahug.

The announcement was made by Ely Capacio, the membership committee head.

Out of the 88 applicants which gave their applications during the first-ever Unity Congress, which was held in February of 2007, only 15 were given entry by the committee.

However, according to a reliable source, the others have been given until April 14 to submit the necessary documents to facilitate their entry and upgrade their status from “transition members” to “active.”

Although the complete list of members were not yet made available to the press, Cebu Daily News was told that the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA), the University Athletics Association of the Philippines (UAAP), the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), the Philippine Basketball League (PBL) and the NCAA-South also made the cut.

“The Cesafi is the oldest school league in this part of the country, coming from the CAAA. It’s only fitting that it be recognized as a member,” said former commissioner Felix “Boy” Tiukinhoy.

The source also added that the BAP-SBP will have a congress on May 31 for an election of officers as well as a fellowship.

MANILA, Philippines—The BAP-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas has trimmed its official members to 15 basketball organizations nationwide as the election of officers for the year-old sports body draws near.

Only accredited organizations—led by the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA), the Philippine Basketball League (PBL), the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP), the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)—will have voting rights as the BAP-SBP convenes for the national congress of members on May 31.

The nominations and elections committee headed by Eliezer Capacio chose the members out of 96 applicants in a meeting presided by BAP-SBP president Manny V. Pangilinan last Friday.

In a released statement, the BAP-SBP said active members must hold “regular basketball tournaments for at least two consecutive, uninterrupted years” and “the duration of the tournament is at least three months with at least six ball clubs or teams.”

Organizations that failed to secure official membership may still submit other proof of qualification until April 15, before the nominations committee submits its next recommendations to the board on April 25.

Other accredited leagues include the NCAA-South, Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc., National Athletic Association of Schools Colleges and Universities, Small Basketeers of the Philippines, Inc., National Capital Region Athletic Association, Women’s National Collegiate Athletic Association, Cagayan De Oro Schools Athletic Association, El Federacion Basketbolista de Zamboanga, Baguio-Benguet Educational Athletic League and Cagayan De Oro Basketball Federation.

4 Cebu groups get BAP-SBP slots
www.sunstar.com.ph

FOUR Cebu-based organizations were granted associate membership by the Board of Trustees of the BAP-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas in a board meeting held last week at the PLDT tower in Makati.

Unlike the regular members, associate membership is given to sports associations that “conduct programs in or allied with basketball as a competitive sport but do not qualify for active membership.”

They, however, have a chance to change their status but need to apply by sending in their credentials. They are given until April 15 to comply with requirements and only the regular members will enjoy voting powers for the coming May 31 elections.

The only active member from Cebu is the Cebu School Athletic Foundation Inc. Active membership is for leagues that have regular competitions for at least two straight years and only Cesafi qualified from Cebu.

Those granted associate membership are the Visayas Athletic Amateur association, Mindanao-Visayas Basketball Association, the M. Lhuillier Sports Development Foundation and the Cebu Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA).

A total of 96 applications were submitted for consideration but only 15 passed the requirements and were granted associate membership by the nominations and elections committee of BAP-SBP.

The memberships are classified into active, associate and affiliate according to certain standards.

Cesafi joined the ranks of University Athletic Association of the Philippines, National Collegiate Athletic Association, National Collegiate Athletic Association – South, Philippine Basketball Association, Philippine Basketball League among others that were granted active membership and will get a chance to vote in this May’s national congress.

The NOMELCOM was tasked by the Board to review the application and credentials of ninety six (96) basketball organizations, most of which were submitted by the Basketball Association of the Philippines (BAP) and Pilipinas Basketball (PB) to FIBA. The validation of the members’ list is in fulfillment of the mandate given to the 3-Man Panel formed pursuant to the Tokyo Communiqué dated 28th August 2006, which Communiqué was agreed by both the BAP and PB and witnessed by FIBA.

As part of the validation process, the NOMELCOM has classified these organizations into active, associate, and affiliate members based on certain criteria defined under the BAP-SBP By-Laws.
Active members must be sports associations that actively conduct regular basketball tournaments for at least two (2) consecutive, uninterrupted years and in each of which years, the duration of the tournament is at least three months with at least six ball clubs or teams participating per tournament. Active members have voting rights.

Associate membership is open to sports associations that conduct programs in or allied with basketball as a competitive sport but do not qualify for active membership.

Affiliate membership is open to organizations that promote basketball in their activities.

The organizations that did not make active membership status as at the Board Meeting date of 4th April have been given by the Board up to 15th April 2008 to submit their credentials and proof of qualification in order to render them eligible to vote in the National Congress scheduled for next month. The NOMELCOM will process such credentials and is expected to make the necessary recommendations to the Board by 25th April. Soon thereafter, the Board – acting through its Executive Committee – will announce the final list of validated active members and call for nominations for sectoral representatives to the Board of Trustees which will be elected in May.

AFAIK, CCAA was the forerunner of CAAA, in turn the forerunner o CeSAFI(which is an active member)..Can somebody who has knowledge be kind enough to let us know Cebuano fans about CCAA's programs?

SBP readies final cast of members (http://philstar.com/index.php?Sports&p=49&type=2&sec=30&aid=2008041572)
By Nelson Beltran
Wednesday, April 16, 2008

The BAP-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas nominations and elections committee, chaired by Ely Capacio, meets tomorrow to sort out the final list of members which will be given the voting rights in the national cage body’s first national congress and elections on May 31.

National Basketball Conference, Philippine Collegiate Champions League, Iloilo Basketball League, Laoag Inter-Club Basketball Association, Zamboanga City Sports and Arts Association, and KABAKA were among members which beat the deadline yesterday to submit credentials and application for active membership status for the coming elections.

Earlier granted the same status were the UAAP, NCAA, NCAA-South, PBA, PBL, CESAFI, NAASCU, SBPI, NCRAA, WNCAA, COSAA, El Federacion Basketbolista de Zamboanga,* Baguio-Benguet Educational Athletic League (BBEAL), Pinoy Basketball, Inc. and Cagayan De Oro Basketball Federation.

“We’re not delisting anybody. We’re just sorting out the membership for the coming general assembly. An associate member will be granted active membership status once it complies with the process and the requirements,” said Capacio.

The organizations not granted active membership status during the board meeting last April 4 were given up to yesterday to submit credentials that would make them eligible to vote on May 31.

“Everyone was given the window of opportunity. Those who didn’t comply may still do so. From an associate, one can become an active member once it satisfies the requirements,” said Capacio.

Atty. Boni Alentajan, Noli Eala, Nic Jorge and Bernie Atienza are among the members of the nominations and elections committee screening and validating the SBP general membership.

...Meanwhile, SBP nominations and elections committee chairman Ely Capacio said only about five additional organizations were able to submit complete documents for active membership in the national cage body which will have its general assembly and elections on May 31.

“A big number of organizations submitted papers but still failed to comply with the full requirements,” said Capacio who presided the committee meeting yesterday.

i'm sure the BAP has something to do with CCAA's inclusion in the list, remember they submitted a list of more than 60 basketball associations, this only proves that the banished BAP wanted to have the leverage to wrestle control of our basketball NSA - SBP.

it only proves how the BAP tries to use every dirty trick it could exploit just to have the numbers in the upcoming SBP elections.

gladly, the SBP's screeing committee are wary and sharp enough to identify these leagues which are of questionable backgrounds.

you can even scroll up again the list and you'll notice by the names of these leagues you could already tell which ones are genuine and the ones that seem to be fly-by-night leagues. i won't name them but i'm pretty sure you can
enumerate most of them


Down with the BAP!!!

19 orgs vested with voting powers (http://businessmirror.com.ph/05152008/sports04.html)

THE future of the Basketball Association of the Philippines-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (BAP-SBP) now lies on 19 organizations, which have been declared as official active members of the federation.

Four more groups have been elevated as active members by the BAP-SBP, thus completing the roster that will nominate who will sit in the 25-man board of trustees where the president will be picked.

The elections have been set on June 12, tentatively at the Dusit Hotel.

“It’s a good start, especially for a fresh organization,” said BAP-SBP president Manny V. Pangilinan after the body’s executive meeting Wednesday at the PLDT office in Makati City.

Nomination and membership committee (Nomemcom) chairman Ely Capacio said the Visayas Amateur Athletic Association, Philippine Collegiate Championship League, Zamboanga City Sports and Arts Association and Iloilo Basketball League have been granted active member status, hiking the number of voting members to 19.

Under the bylaws of the BAP-SBP, only active members have the voting power to nominate a candidate to the board.

Fifteen organizations were previously approved in April and Capacio said the nomination has now been closed and groups seeking active membership status have to wait for May 2009 to apply.

“The association [BAP-SBP] has a dynamic process when it comes to the status of their membership. They can be active members now but if they don’t comply with the requirements, they can be removed,” said Capacio.

A total of 111 groups applied for active-member status but only 19 were accepted, thus fueling doubts that all sectors are well represented in the BAP-SBP.

“I’m sure some are unhappy but later on, they will realize who are the legitimate members of the federation,” said Pangilinan. “We have to impose discipline here and I hope more active members will be accepted in the future.”

The executive committee also approved the sectoral representations of the organizations in the BAP-SBP Board as recommended by the Nomemcom.

The geographical sector will have 11 seats in the board while the professional sector, represented by the Philippine Basketball Association, will get four seats. The school-based sector has five, the commercial sector three and the special sector (women and youth) has two seats.

The organizations under these sectors will select their candidates for the Board of Trustees and the deadline for the submission of their sectoral nominees to the Nomemcom is on May 21.

When asked if he’s seeking a fresh term, Pangilinan did not directly answer the question and said his priority now is the coming Board of Trustees elections on Independence Day.

The executive committee set the criteria for the nominees—a Filipino citizen, an active participant in BAP-SBP activities and must be duly delegated or elected by the related association.

The elections were originally set for May 31 but the executive committee decided to move the date to give the sectors more time to ponder their nominees.

Also, Pangilinan announced that executive director Patrick Gregorio’s term with BAP-SBP has been extended to June 12 “without pay.” Gregorio tendered his resignation to Pangilinan effective May 31 after the brouhaha in the Southeast Asia Basketball Association Champions Cup in Jakarta last month.

Pangilinan also did not comment on the election of officers called by Rep. Luis Villafuerte of the BAP on Saturday at the Century Park Hotel, again reiterating that the BAP-SBP is the only recognized basketball body by the International Basketball Association in the country.

No place for Lim in new board
By Nelson Beltran
Friday, May 16, 2008
philstar.com


Graham Lim, now out of the FIBA picture, may also find himself out of Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas with the formation of the new SBP board of trustees before the end of the month.

Lim, the Basketball Association of the Philippines secretary-general, is among the BAP men in the interim board but he’s likely to get the boot without a league to represent in the formation of the next board.

Lim is not an official of any of the 19 cage bodies given active membership status by the SBP executive committee. These 19 associations will nominate 25 people to compose the new board from which the new set of federation officers will come.

“He can never be a member of the board. First of all, he’ll never satisfy the No. 1 rule which says a nominee to the board must be a Filipino,” said The STAR source, noting Lim has been declared undesirable alien by the government.

The FIBA Central Board has dismissed Lim from the FIBA Youth Commission and, at the same time, asked FIBA Asia and the SBP “to review the appropriateness of Mr. Lim’s participation in any body of FIBA Asia.”

An SBP official doubted whether the federation would still act on Lim since a new board will be formed in the next few days.

“He is a trustee who has never attended a single board meeting. He’s not a trustee in good standing,” the SBP official said of Lim.

Top FIBA officials slammed Lim for sowing confusion in Philippine basketball even after the merger of the BAP and Pilipinas Basketball with the formation of the SBP.

Harbour’s Romero, Jun Sy on SBP board?
By Beth Celis
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 04:03:00 05/15/2008

By this time, BAP- Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) president Manuel V. Pangilinan (MVP) should be in San Francisco, having dinner with Harbour Centre’s Mikee Romero.

MVP will be with his vice chair Ricky Vargas, who’s flying in straight from Capetown, South Africa.

At Wednesday’s SBP meeting, at which the executive committee approved the new list of members of the organization, MVP said he would very much want two gentlemen who had been very supportive of Philippine basketball to be on the SBP board.

He was referring to Mikee and Jun Sy, who is funding the boys’ youth program or what is collectively known as the NBTC.

Jun Sy is the president of Tao Corporation, the biggest distributor of Nokia phones in the Philippines.

A low-profile businessman who has pledged over P70 million to Philippine basketball, scribe-friends who have met Jun up close have only good words to say about him.

He is definitely well liked.

* * *

Before the SBP elections, which have been reset from May 31 to June l2, Independence Day, the representatives of the various stakeholders should be in.

As far as the Philippine Basketball Association is concerned, the four slots allotted to the league will go to the commissioner, Sonny Barrios, the current board chairman Tony Chua, the vice chairman Joaqui Trillo and the treasurer, Robert Non.

The Philippine Basketball League, which is given two seats, will be represented by commissioner Chino Trinidad and incoming board chairman Mikee Romero.

Mikee, who will be returning from a six-week vacation in San Francisco before the election, said he was honored to be of service to the SBP.

I have not had the chance to get a reaction from Jun Sy.

The geographical sector will have 11 seats in the board while the professional sector, represented by the Philippine Basketball Association, will get four seats. The school-based sector has five, the commercial sector three and the special sector (women and youth) has two seats.

The organizations under these sectors will select their candidates for the Board of Trustees and the deadline for the submission of their sectoral nominees to the Nomemcom is on May 21.

When asked if he’s seeking a fresh term, Pangilinan did not directly answer the question and said his priority now is the coming Board of Trustees elections on Independence Day.

The executive committee set the criteria for the nominees—a Filipino citizen, an active participant in BAP-SBP activities and must be duly delegated or elected by the related association.

The elections were originally set for May 31 but the executive committee decided to move the date to give the sectors more time to ponder their nominees.

Also, Pangilinan announced that executive director Patrick Gregorio’s term with BAP-SBP has been extended to June 12 “without pay.” Gregorio tendered his resignation to Pangilinan effective May 31 after the brouhaha in the Southeast Asia Basketball Association Champions Cup in Jakarta last month.

Pangilinan also did not comment on the election of officers called by Rep. Luis Villafuerte of the BAP on Saturday at the Century Park Hotel, again reiterating that the BAP-SBP is the only recognized basketball body by the International Basketball Association in the country.

Cesafi gets seat in BAP-SBP board
Saturday, May 17, 2008
Sunstar Cebu

THE Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation seems to be headed for a busy 2008 season. As early as now, a few months before the season starts, the officials already have their hands busy with a lot of developments.

Yesterday, the Cesafi received confirmation from the Basketball Association of the Philippines-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (BAP-SBP) that Cesafi will be getting a seat in the Board of Trustees of the country’s umbrella organization for basketball.

“Cesafi received yesterday, a letter from the BAP-SBP, telling Cesafi to nominate a representative,” said Cesafi commissioner Felix Tiukinhoy.

Cesafi’s authorized representative is its president, Engr. Rolly Villa of the University of Southern Philippines Foundation. However, according to Tiukinhoy, Villa and the rest of the Cesafi Board will be nominating another representative, who will sit in with the BAP-SBP board for instances that Villa could not make it to the meetings.

BAP-SBP executive director Patrick Gregorio announced the other day that Cesafi is one of the five school-leagues that were given seats to the BAP-SBP board, alongside another Cebu-based league, the Visayas Amateur Athletic Association of Cebu City Councilor Raul “Yayoy” Alcoseba.

These representatives will be given voting powers in the coming BAP-SBP elections on June 12 and will also have a hand in decision-making. “There are currently 19 active associations, who will nominate the trustees to the 25-man board,” Gregorio said.

Meanwhile, other than preparing for their all-important role in the national sports association for basketball, the seven year old-league is also preparing to give the Cesafi supporters an early taste of what the 2008 season has to offer with an exhibition game on May 23 at the New Cebu Coliseum.

The matches are expected to draw some crowd as University of San Jose Recoletos will be pitting skills against celebrities in a one-day affair.

“The actors’ group tapped Cesafi as they want to hold a tune-up match with a collegiate team, before heading off north to Bogo for another competition,” Tiukinhoy said.

USJ-R will be going up against celebrities Cesar Montano, Carlos Morales, DJ Durano, Joross Gamboa, Onyok Velasco, Jordan Herrera, Rommel Montano, Wowie de Guzman, Gino Padilla, Jerry Lopez and Joko Diaz.

Game time is set at 5:30 p.m. right after the University of Cebu-Don Bosco tiff set at 4 p.m. (MCB)

PBA nominates MVP, 3 others to SBP board

http://philstar.com

The Philippine Basketball Association named yesterday Talk n Text team owner Manny V. Pangilinan as one of its four nominees in the SBP board of trustees – the initial step that could lead to his reelection as president of the national cage federation.

The PBA board, in a resolution passed in a meeting yesterday, also named current chairman Tony Chua, immediate past chairman Ricky Vargas and commissioner Sonny Barrios as its three other nominees to the SBP board.

Under the SBP by-laws, the PBA, representing the professional sector, is entitled to four nominees in the 25-man SBP board from where the new federation president will come during its election of officers on June 12.

At press time, the SBP nominations and memberships committee, chaired by Ely Capacio, was finalizing the list of nominees to be presented to the SBP executive committee today.

Eleven will come from the geographical sector, five school-based, three from commercial and two from special sector.

PBL commissioner Chino Trinidad and Harbour Centre owner Mikee Romero are likely to represent the commercial sector, BEST founder Nic Jorce the special sector and NAASCU’s Jay Adalem, UAAP’s Junjun Capistrano and NCAA’s Ding Lozano among those likely to represent the school leagues.

Meanwhile, a* STAR source said BAP leaders Cong. Luis Villafuerte and former Cong. Prospero Pichay are likely to seek a Temporary Restraining Order to stop the holding of the SBP election.

Villafuerte, supposedly acting in his capacity as SBP chairman, had even called their own meeting last Saturday at the Century Park Sheraton Hotel. They deferred holding their own election, though.

All nominees for the new Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas board of trustees are now in, except one from the special sector and two from geographical group.

The Philippine Basketball League nominated Hapee Toothpaste’s Cecilio Pedro and Harbour Centre’s Mikee Romero while Liga Pilipinas named Misamis Oriental Gov. Oscar Moreno and businessman-sportsman Tac Padilla.

Jay Adalem (NAASCU), Junjun Capistrano (UAAP), Ding Lozano (NCAA), Jerry Sabal (Cagayan de Oro Schools) and Atty. Baldomero Estenso (CESAFI) are collegiate-based nominees while Fr. Paul de Vera, Rey Gamboa, Noli Eala, Danilo Soria, James Malaya and two from among Visayas leaders Yayoy Alcoseba, Robert Uy and Nelson Divinagracia are to represent their respective geographical areas.

BEST founder Nic Jorge retained his seat, representing the special sector.

Earlier, the PBA, representing the pro sector, nominated Talk n Text team owner Manny V. Pangilinan, current board chairman Tony Chua, immediate past chairman Ricky Vargas and commissioner Sonny Barrios.

SBP nominations and memberships committee chairman Ely Capacio presented the names to the interim board in a meeting yesterday at the PLDT office in Makati.

The new 25-man board will meet at 11 a.m. on June 12 for the election of new set of officers.

With the likes of Cong. Luis Villafuerte and former Cong. Prospero Pichay unable to get board nomination, Pangilinan is likely to be reelected as president by acclamation.

The next president will serve for four years till the next Olympic year in 2012.

MVP sa BAP-SBP polls
May 24, 2008 - Saturday
www.abante-tonite.com

Pinalitan na ni Talk ‘N Text owner Manny V. Pangilinan si Ricky Vargas, bilang PBA Board of Governor, isang indikasyon na tatakbo ang team owner sa panguluhan ng BAP-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas na nakatakda sa June 12, 2008.

Kasama ang pangalan ni Pangilinan sa sulat na ipinadala ng PBA sa SBP para sa apat na seats sa Board of Trustees ng SBP bilang isa sa mga stakeholders ng asosasyon.

Bukod kay Pangilinan ang iba pa na itinalaga ng PBA ay sina commissioner Sonny Barrios, chairman Tony Chua at Ricky Vargas.

Ayon sa source nag-give way para kay Pangilinan ang PBA in-coming chairman Joaqui Trillio.

Sinasabi ng mga tagamasid ang hakbang na ito ay matibay na indikasyon na tatakbo si Pangilinan sa pangka-pangulo ng BAP-SBP.

Naunang napabalita na hindi na tatakbo si Pangilinan, matapos ang kanyang termino bilang interim president ng BAP-SBP.

Upang maging kuwalipikado si Pangilinan na tumakbo sa pagkapangulo kailangang makasama siya sa Board of Trustees na siyang panggagalingan ng mga kuwalipikadong maging pangulo ng samahan.

Para makapasok sa BAP-SBP board of trustees kailangang maging PBA board of governor muna siya.

Batay sa mga espekulasyon, ang nagaganap na gulo sa kasalukuyan sa pagitan ng BAP at SBP ang pangunahing dahilan kung bakit biglang nagbago ng pasya si Pangilinan.

Marami rin ang nagtatanong kung paano makakatakbo sa pangka-pangulo ang kasalukuyang presidente ng BAP na si dating congressman Butch Pitchay sa gaganaping halalan sa June 12, gayong wala ang kanyang pangalan sa Board of Trustees ng BAP-SBP.

Nauna rito, inihayag din ng BAP na magkakaroon sila ng General Assembly meeting sa June 4 upang maghalal ng kabukod na mga opisyal ng kanilang samahan.

Ex-cage execs lead SBP top post bets
By Jasmine W. Payo
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 22:09:00 05/23/2008

MANILA, Philippines--Three business moguls, past and present commissioners and long-time basketball pillars lead the candidates for the new president of the BAP-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas.

Executive director Patrick Gregorio announced Friday that the approved list of nominees--headed by incumbent president and telecommunication tycoon Manny V. Pangilinan, former PBA chief Noli Eala, PBL team owners Cecilio Pedro of Hapee and Mikee Romero of Harbour Centre--following a board meeting at the PLDT office

"From this list will emerge the president with a term of four years until 2012," said Gregorio, noting that 22 out of the 25 submitted names passed the screening.

The BAP-SBP, boosted by the renewed support of the International Basketball Federation (Fiba) last week, will hold its national congress and election on June 12 at 11 a.m. at Dusit Hotel in Makati City.

Pangilinan, team owner of Talk 'N Text, earned a nomination from the professional sector along with PBA commissioner Sonny Barrios, former chair Ricky Vargas, and Red Bull's Tony Chua.

Pedro and Romero, both corporate chief executive officers, were named by the commercial sector as its candidates.

The geographic sector selected Eala, the brainchild of the latest national league Liga Pilipinas, as its representative in Area 3 (Regions 4 and 5) along with Fr. Paul de Vera of NCAA-South; Philippine Collegiate Champions League's Rey Gamboa and Pinoy Basketball Inc.'s Gov. Oca Moreno and Tac Padilla in Area 1 (NCR); Daniel Danilo Soria and James Malaya for Area 2 (Regions 1, 2, 3 and CAR); Yayoy Alcoseba, Robert Uy and Snook Divinagracia in Area 4 ( Regions 6, 7 and 8 ).

SBP reserves a top post for Romero
By Joel Orellana
Reporter
www.businessmirror.com.ph
*
AFTER conquering the Philippine Basketball League (PBL) anew, Harbour Centre team owner Mikee Romero now shifts his attention to a bigger responsibility in an organization that’s still searching for stability.

The amateur basketball godfather said he will play an active role in the programs and activities of the Basketball Association of the Philippines-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (BAP-SBP), which will elect its new set of officers on June 12 at Dusit Hotel in Makati.

Romero reportedly met with BAP-SBP president Manny Pangilinan during a business trip in San Francisco, California, last week and the two basketball patrons discussed the would-be involvement of the Batang Pier owner in the new board of the federation.

But Romero refused to specify what his task will be, but he guaranteed his full support and commitment to the new BAP-SBP board.

“I’ll be more involved in the federation, that’s for sure,” said Romero, who was one of the two trustees nominated to the new BAP-SBP board along with PBL chairman Cecilio Pedro.

In that meeting with Pangilinan, the presidency of the federation was reportedly offered to Romero, but he declined because of a number of reasons.

One of the major reasons is Romero will be the incoming chairman of the PBL board next season, and he has expressed his big plans for the league, including the possibility of holding a first regular out-of-the country game.

“Why not? If the PBA [Philippine Basketball Association] can do it, I think we can also bring one or two PBL games abroad kung saan maraming Filipinos,” said Romero.

He mentioned Singapore, Hong Kong and Guam as possible stops of the first out-of-the-country PBL tiff where there are thousands of Filipino workers.

“Pero one season lang naman akong magiging chairman ng PBL. Let’s see what will happen [as far as his future involvement with BAP-SBP is concerned],” he added. “Pero ang importante magtulungan ang lahat ng basketball stakeholders sa bansa.”

The BusinessMirror learned that Pangilinan will give Romero a bigger role in the federation once the new set of officers are named after the June 12 election.

Meanwhile, everything is set for the BAP-SBP elections on June 12 and Pangilinan is expected to get a fresh four-year term by acclamation as he has the solid support of the new trustees nominated to the board.

Curiously, the BAP-SBP wing of BAP chairman and Camarines Sur Rep. Luis Villafuerte and president Prospero “Butch” Pichay will also hold its own election on June 4 at the Century Park Hotel.

There are reports that the BAP group will seek a temporary restraining order to stop the election of BAP-SBP.

No one from the BAP would confirm nor deny the intention to seek the court’s intervention on the issue.

EALA, PUENTEVELLA, MORENO IN BAP-SBP?
Pangilinan readies crew to chart RP caging future
By Aldrin Cardona
06/08/2008
http://tribune.net.ph

Noli Eala, former commissioner of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) and founder/chairman of the fledgling Liga Pilipinas, is expected to be appointed executive director of the BAP-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) when the troubled merger elects its first permanent set of officers on June 12 at the Dusit Hotel in Makati.

But two new names would soon join the list, which observers suspect is another case of political expediency to stem very rough times ahead in the face of Basketball Association of the Philippines’ continued defiance of the BAP-SBP leadership.

An unimpeachable source confirmed Eala’s impending appointment after BAP-SBP president Manny Pangilinan and his closest advisers conferred recently to finalize the line up the telecommunications mogul is expected to present before the 19 official delegates recognized by the merger.

Pangilinan is expected to become the hands down choice to retain the presidency with Eala, his soon-to-be man on-board in every BAP-SBP dealings. Misamis Oriental Governor Oscar Moreno is said to be primed for the chairmanship, while Bacolod Rep. Monico Puentevella would sit as his vice.

Moreno and Puentevella have never been associated with the BAP-SBP until only recently. The two, however, could be potent forces to meet head-on BAP’s Prospero Pichay, a losing senatorial candidate, and Camarines Sur Rep. Luis Villafuerte, who began to style themselves as president and chairman of their own “BAP-SBP.”

A divided group awaits Eala, who admitted he recently provided audience to the Pichay-Villafuerte group, which is associated with Chinese citizen Graham Lim, BAP’s disgraced leader who is facing deportation orders which the Bureau of Immigration could not implement until now. Lim was found to have faked his papers to claim Filipino citizenship.

Eala, himself, confirmed he has a meeting set with Pangilinan tomorrow night but claimed he has yet been officially offered the seat to be vacated by Patrick Gregorio, who resigned after the Philippine team’s disastrous campaign in the recent Southeast Asian Basketball Association (Seaba) Championship in Jakarta.

Gregorio got the flak for his failure to secure the necessary papers for Nigerian Sam Ekwe, who was supposed to play as import for the RP team in the recent Seaba Championship in Jakarta. The Nationals finished as runners-up to host Indonesia for playing with a big gap in their roster.

Gregorio resigned eventually but was told to stay until the June 12 elections.

Eala claimed Gregorio had sounded off Pangilinan’s intention to appoint him to one of the most important positions in the BAP-SBP.

“It’s not official, and I still have to clear some issues on Monday. There is a couple of questions that I wanted to clear and some issues I have to deal with my present association now,” Eala said. “But if everything becomes clear soon, (the appointment) will always be an honor).”

It’s not expected to become an easy ride for Eala, though.

Ghosts of his past

An Eala critic claimed “it would be unwise” for Pangilinan to appoint Eala to Gregorio’s post as he has allegedly yet to erase a past record that caused his departure from the PBA on moral and personal issues.

“How can somebody disgraced from one group be good enough to become the executive director of mother association?” asked the source, who begged off to be identified.

Eala, however, has stayed away from limelight months after he resigned as PBA commissioner, until he resurfaced with a new league, the Liga Pilipinas, which is almost completely his own.

Eala, however, said he is ready for the challenge.

“Handa naman ako na ituloy ang mga programa, at harapin yung mga projects na iiwan ni Pato (Gregorio),” said Eala. It was Eala who recommended Gregorio to the post he would soon occupy himself. “The transition should not be a problem.”

“Obviously, there are some unfinished business for SBP, but I am also a member of the board and am updated with what’s going on, things we have accomplished and what needs to be worked on,” said Eala.

The bridge

Puentevella, meanwhile, offered himself to bridge the warring basketball factions.

“They’re all my friends, I think I can help. I can be the bridge between MVP (Pangilinan) and Pichay and Villafuerte on the other side,” Puentevella said.

Puentevella, however, reiterated he was yet informed of his possible nomination as vice chairman. “Wala pa ‘yan at this point, but I am told either that or I would stay as a member of the advisory council,” he said.

Although the International Basketball Federation has expressed its recognition of the Pangilinan group as the duly recognized affiliate from the Philippines, the BAP side of the merger held an election on Wednesday on the strength of what they claimed were the “Bangkok agreement and the Tokyo communiqué,” which they claimed recognized all its 69 member groups.

Pangilinan’s group ignored the election and will push through with the BAP-SBP’s own congress on June 12.

More questions

The BAP-SBP, however, is not without flaws.

A leader of the Negros Occidental Private Schools Sports, Cultural and Educational Association (Nopsscea), a former member of Pilipinas Basketball, predecessor of the SBP, questioned the group’s delisting from the list of BAP-SBP’s recognized groups.

According to Rudy Ascona, Nopsscea representative to the SPB, they were surprised by the sudden inclusion of another group from Bacolod, where ironically, Puentevella is coming from.

Another group is also questioning the recognition of Rey Gamboa’s Battle of the Champions group, which its leaders claimed is just a duplication of the UAAP and the NCAA.

Kung totoo ang tip ng source sa Abante, nanga*ngahulungan na kunyari-kunyarian o “mock elections” na lamang ang nakatakdang halalan ng BAP-SBP sa darating na June 12 sa Dusit Hotel sa Makati City.

Noong nakaraang June 4, 2008 nagdaos ng hiwalay na convention at election ang BAP sa Century Park Sheraton Hotel kung saan ay nahalal naman si former Rep. Prospero Pichay bilang pangulo at si Rep. Luis Villafuerte ang chairman.

Ang ginanap na election ayon sa BAP ay naaa*yon sa “Bangkok Agreement” na sinuway ni BAP-SBP president Pangilinan.
Gayunpaman, ipinagkibit-balikat lamang ng grupo ni Pangilinan ang ginanap na halalan ng BAP hardliners dahil hindi naman umano ito kinikilala ng Fiba at ng Philippine Olympic Committee (POC).

Ayon sa ilang obser*vers kung balewala sa Pangi*linan faction ang BAP election bakit tila pumili sila ng panapat kina Pichay at Villafuerte sa katauhan nina Puentevella at Gov. Moreno.

Tinataya na sa susunod na ilang araw magkakaroon ng palitan ng salita ang magkabilang panig tungkol sa kung alin sa kanila ang lehitimong national association.

Sa katunayan, nagsi*mula na ang media blitz ng magsalita si Pichay na kikilalanin niya ang BAP-SBP election sa June 12 kung makakakuha sila ng mahigit sa 67 ballclubs na kanyang nakuhang boto noong nakaraang Miyerkules.

Subalit hindi naman mangyayari ito dahil 19 o 20 ballclubs lamang ang na-accredit o nakalusot kay BAP-SBP nomination and membership committee chairman Ely Capacio sa halos 100 na nagsumite ng applications.

Ang mga hindi naaprubahan ay ginawa na lamang associate members pero walang voting power.

SBP ADVISORY COUNCIL TO BE FORMED
Pangilinan appoints Moreno, Puentevella as cage advisers

The possible entry of Oscar Moreno and Monico Puentevella in the central board of BAP-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) created a stir in the general membership of the cage body, prompting its president, Manny Pangilinan, to clarify that the two politicians, are out to stand as his advisers and not as official members of the 25-man board of trustees.

The appointment of Moreno and Puentevella as chairman and vice-chairman of the soon-to-be formed SBP advisory council would be formalized when the embattled cage group elects its first set of permanent officers on June 12 at the Dusit Hotel in Makati City.

The occasion also marks the formal appointment of Liga Pilipinas founder and former Philippine Basketball Association commissioner Noli Eala as SBP executive director replacing Patrick Gregorio who resigned in the wake of the Philippine Team’s forgettable finish in the Southeast Asian Basketball Association (Seaba) Champions Cup in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The formation of an advisory council with Moreno and Puentevella on top and the appointment of Eala, however, would only be possible if Pangilinan wins a fresh four-year term, a looming possibility since no one is expected to challenge his attempt to retain his post. After all, appointing the executive director is the prerogative of the president and not by the SBP board.

Pangilinan has also relayed already his plan of assembling an advisory council to the powerful SBP board and, according to a highly-reliable source, he got an overwhelming approval.

The source also revealed that Pangilinan decided to tap basketball newcomers Moreno and Puentevella to be his chief advisers to assemble a potent political force that will challenge the tandem of Prospero Pichay and Luis Villafuerte who have already declared themselves as the “more legitimate SBP” through the virtue of the Bangkok agreement and the support fo 67 cage associations which graced their election last week.

Although Misamis Oriental Governor Moreno and Bacolod Representative Puentevella have never been associated with BAP-SBP before, they are able politicians who can easily reach out to the politically-inclined duo of Pichay and Villafuerte. Pichay is a former Surigao del Sur representative and a losing senatorial candidate while Villafuerte is the incumbent Camarines Sur representative.

Puentevella, also the first vice president of the Philippine Olympic Committee, has yet to be informed of his possible nomination, but expressed readiness in bridging the gap between Pangilinan and the group of Pichay and Villafuerte.

In a press briefing last week, Pichay stressed that the Bangkok agreement forged between the erstwhile warring BAP and Pilipinas Basketball that led to the creation of the SBP early last year states that all the 80 stakeholders recognized in the Tokyo communique will constitute the general membership of the merger. And since they have already clinched the support of 67 members, Pangilinan’s SBP will hold its national congress without a quorum for having only 13 members.

But the source just laughed off the claim, saying that most of the members of the Pichay bloc are bogus and fly-by-night leagues who did not make the stringent, year-long validation process conducted by the SBP’s nominations and elections committee headed by Eliezar Capacio. Capacio recognized only 19 groups which will comprise the 25-man board that will elect the new SBP president.

Pangilinan refused to reveal the composition of the new set of board of trustees with the source claiming that he is keeping it close to his chest to make sure that everything will go on as planned heading into their national congress.
