A new Chinese-Filipino high school basketball league, the Philippine Ching Yuen Athletic Association, will unwrap its maiden season on Saturday, November 16, at the Uno Gym in Manila.

The league is composed of six members, namely, Uno High School, St. Jude Catholic School, Grace Christian College, Philippine Cultural College, Saint Peter Apostle Church and Makati Gospel Church New Life.

Uno High School, Grace Christian College and Philippine Cultural College were the founding members of the 43-year Metro Manila Tiong Lian Basketball Association.

Philippine Cultural College left the MMTLBA in the late 1980s due to political differences and poor officiating. Uno left the MMTLBA before the 2013 season because of recruitment issues. Grace Christian College and St. Jude Catholic School subsequently also quit the league after the 43rd season over the same issue.

That left the MMTLBA with just four members: Reigning champion Hope Christian High School, Xavier School, Chiang Kai Shek College and St. Stephen’s High School. HCHS, Xavier School and CKSC are seeing action in the 2nd Philippine Secondary Schools Basketball Championship, which will also commence action on November 16, against the top juniors teams from the UAAP and NCAA.

All the Ching Yuen games will be held at the Uno Gym on Saturdays and Sundays.

The three games on opening day are: Grace Christian College vs. SPAS (10:30 a.m.), St. Jude Catholic School vs. MGCNL (1 p.m.) and PCC vs. Uno High School (2:30 p.m.).

Two games are slated for Sunday, November 17. They are Uno vs. Grace Christian (10:30 a.m.) and SJCS vs. SPAS (1:00 p.m.).
