Sad news: Wala na munang PBL, at least this year.
For a while, napabalitang may PBL ngayong December na inilalakad at
inaayos ng ilang sports officials. Mayroon pa nga daw television coverage
at sa free TV pa.
Pero mukhang di na matutuloy sa kakulangan ng preparasyon.
Kawawa naman ang mga college players na umaasang may PBL ngayong
tapos na ang NCAA at UAAP.
Sayang.

Naghahanda na ang NCRAA para sa pagbubukas ng liga nila in two
weeks' time.
Bongga ang NCRAA ngayon kasi marami pa ring schools na kasali.
Harinawa'y magkaroon din ng TV coverage ang NCRAA tulad ng NCAA
at UAAP.
