CSS Basketball Season 4: Director’s Cup Preview

The long wait is over, this year’s basketball tournament headed by our Consumer Sports Committee launched the 4th Season of CSS Basketball: The Director’s Cup.

The original date of the opening day supposedly July 23, 2011 at the World Wide Corporate Center WCC for short but it re-scheduled for some reason, we all got excited when they announced that CSS All Hands & 4th Season of CSS Basketball Tournament will be held at YNARES Sports Arena in Pasig City.

5 Teams will battle for the top and will fight and be crowned the 2011’s Champions, these are Team Yellow (Hotfix) lead by Giane Ira, Team Blue (Pawn Stars) lead by 1st Season MVP Glenn Suegay, Team Gray (Baskills) headed by last years Rookie & MVP Sensation Caloy Ocampo, Team Red (Hit Man Pro) my former team for the last 3 seasons lead by Ian “The Tank” Nava and Team White (Jackals The Rising Stars) my new team and lead by our captain ball Jhe “Jhebron” Bautista.

In line with this, I’ve been reading predictions and write ups of Sir Christian Lumanglas about our tournament since last year and been a fan of his blog site, because of this if I feel like to read it again for scouting and preparation to the next time it may and didn’t help at all haha.

Christian is a basketball fanatic and blogs about basketball, on his blog, he say’s “After 7 months of hiatus, Consumer Sports Committee will launch its 4th basketball season this coming Saturday July 30, 2011 happening at Ynares Center. Five teams will be vying for the coveted championship and bragging rights as the 4th Champion Team in CSS Basketball league.” click here to read his full article.

It was my first time to played at YNARES Sports Arena and I so love it haha sad to say games will resume to WCC Basketball court. Speaking of first time, I still remember the very first time I played in a coliseum was back in high school at Dagupan Astrodome when

I am one of the member of élite basketball varsity team that started sky blue as the school’s team color which they are still using up until now.

That said jersey is still kept in my closet, I was the king of the boards back then ala Dennis “The Worm” Rodman lol just kidding. I may not the best offensive scorer during my high school years because I suck in jump shots but my contribution was solely in defense and rebounding.

Quick Trivia About Me:
I tried out and trained for 3 years in Volleyball Team but never been selected and given  chance be part of the team starting from my freshmen year to junior year that’s why I gave up that sport haha. Come senior year I tried out in basketball having confidence with my leaping ability and swatting abilities I acquired in volleyball trainings then finally I’ve been selected and I was the 2nd player on the list of 15 players to complete the élite varsity team that rallied for Inter-Private Basketball Tournament and Zone Meet during my time wearing jersey number 6. I selected number 6 because my favorite NBA Player is Eddie Jones of L.A. Lakers.
