    I*strongly believe that this league's creation is an off-shoot of the SFAC*Doves' unceremonious removal from the last UCAA tournament. Don't expect to see the Las Pinas City-based school in the coming NCRAA wars as well.

    Also, they should check their league name which is similar and confusing withh the United Central Luzon Athletic Association (UCLAA) which has a thread of its own in this forum.

    Tss. I guess SFAC would never make it to the NCAA then. Parang BAP to, gawa ng gawa ng ligang walang patutunguhan. Excuse me for whatever my statement would suggest.

    Who's behind this league?

    BAP-influenced ba ito? or is it SBP?

    but i observe parang sa 2nd sem sila magsisimula ng maiden season nila, so therefore, wala silang representative sa PCCL.

    and kung BAP-influenced league ito, ibig sabihin sila sila mismo nag aaway away, this is an off-shoot of the NCRAA na hawak ni Abundo who is a staunch BAP hardliner.

    ibig sabihin din nito, multiple identities nanaman para sa mga teams na kasali. Member na sila ng NCRAA, UCAA or CUSA tapos ito pang isa UCLAA.

    ano ba ito, paramihan ng liga na walang substance eh pwede naman na isang liga na lang.


    Down with the BAP!!!

    Deport Graham Lim Now!!!

    Support the SBP!!!

    Long Live Philippine Basketball!!!
