LINGAYEN, Pangasinan – The much awaited basketball league – The Governor’s Cup Inter-Town Basketball Tournament– will sizzle anew as the second season is set to stage on November 11, 2017.

This was announced by Provincial Sports Development Management Council (PSDMC) Executive Officer Modesto Operania during the preparatory meeting where coaches, municipal sports coordinators, and organizers converged to discuss the ground rules and guidelines as well as other technical details of the upcoming cagefest on August 30 held at the Narciso Ramos Sports and Civic Center (NRSCC) Restaurant in Lingayen.

Governor Amado I. Espino, III lauded the participants for their exceptional display of sportsmanship, discipline, respect, and camaraderie during the 1st Governor’s Cup Inter-town Basketball tournament which was staged from December 2016 to April early this year.

The provincial chief executive encouraged the participants to continuously instill into the minds of their athletes that the sports program sponsored by the provincial government is not just for their town’s honor but for their own selves.

The season 2 cagefest, the continuation of the young governor’s major sports project, will feature 14 of the finest players ages 18-24 years old born December 31, 1999 to January 1, 1993 from each participating town, and city in the province.

In concluding his speech, the young governor recalled an encounter with an OFW who requested from him to continue supporting the province’s program pointing out how OFWs heavily rely on the social media platforms specifically the livestreaming of the basketball games at the official Facebook Page of the Province.

With this, Governor Espino bared plans to enhance the livestreaming of the tournament which may pave the way to sponsorship opportunities for each town/city.

The provincial chief executive during his speech also bared plans of staging an inter-town women’s volleyball tournament which is also expected to start later this year or early next year. This would open doors for them to be spotted by collegiate coaches, with high hopes of being drafted, he added.

Provincial Sports Coordinator Marlon Domalanta said that 31 Municipalities and three cities in the province will participate in the second season cagefest.

Also joining them in the meeting was Department of Education (DepEd) Ball Referees Association (DEBRA) Representative Dr. Amado Macayan.
