Dasma 2 Central Elementary School near in SM Hyper Market Kadiwa in Dasmariñas City, Cavite over the weekend.

College basketball is broken, a fact that even the NCAA now accepts. The model of amateurism the sport sells has been compromised for years, tainted by the black market the NCAA helped create and the billion dollar business basketball has become.

Recruits are commodities to agents, shoe companies and programs, but it is against the NCAA rules to pay them. There needs to be a better option for the players, but as long as the one-and-done rule exists, the NBA isn’t one of them. Perhaps the G-League can be.

A new era of Bellator will debut on Jan. 20 when the promotion holds its first show on the Paramount Network, the newly re-branded channel that formerly went by Spike TV. But MMA fans will notice another big change as well. Bellator 192 will mark the promotion’s first event without its longtime color commentator Jimmy Smith, who parted ways with the company in a surprise announcement at the end of 2017.

UFC women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg led the disclosed payroll at UFC 219, earning $500,000 for her successful title defense against Holly Holm.

The Nevada Athletic Commission released the event’s finalized salary information in the aftermath of UFC 219.

Barangay Ginebra hung tough in the face of Meralco's late rally to run away with a 101-96 in Game 7 last night and successfully defend the PBA Governor's Cup title against the same contender on Friday night at the Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan last night.

What made the win sweeter was that it was fashioned out before an all-time record crowd of 54,086 fans.

Tony Ferguson was very direct in his call-out of Conor McGregor today.

Now that Tony Ferguson has the UFC interim lightweight title around his waist, he has his eyes on one person - Conor McGregor. Ferguson defeated Kevin Lee at UFC 216 via third-round submission, and is intent on unifying the titles. As a guest on The MMA Hour today, he spelled out exactly why he thinks he should get the fight and had some things to say directly to McGregor (via MMA Fighting):

“I mean, if Dana says it, then we’re going to hold it to him. The UFC is pretty good with that, right? They don’t want to be called liars, and I don’t want to make them a liar, so this sh-t needs to happen.”

A grandson of Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan is suffering from severe depression now after news of the murder of Horatio Castillo, a UST law student who died from the Aegis Juris’ hazing.

Robert Louis Pangilinan filed charges of attempted murder against 16 Tau Gamma Phi fraternity members, all currently enrolled as students of Adamson University, where Pangilinan is a third year Hospitality Management student and a member of the basketball team.

The rematch between WBO super featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko (8-1, 6 KOs) and former two division world champion Orlando Salido (43-13-4, 30 KOs) is being targeted for early August, according to RingTV.com. Lomachenko’s promoter Bob Arum is looking at making the Lomachenko-Salido rematch at around that time at a still to be determined venue in the U.S.

This was one of the greatest games in Rockets history

Nothing could have prepared us for this.

The Houston Rockets, who shot terribly in the first round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs and slumped heading into the playoffs, handed the 61-win San Antonio Spurs probably the biggest ass-whooping a healthy 60-win team has ever received in the NBA Playoffs. James Harden didn’t play in the fourth quarter, and the Rockets won 126-99.

MMA world champion Eduard “Landslide” Folayang has a lot of things in common with Team Lakay comrade Honorio “The Rock” Banario, but one thing in particular has both of their names etched into the pages of history. They are the only two Filipino fighters to win MMA world titles under the ONE Championship banner.

ONE Championship, of course, is today widely regarded as the biggest mixed martial arts promotion in Asia.

The elections for Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) officials set for today will push through after the temporary restraining order on the polls sought by the camp of disqualified candidate for president Ricky P. Vargas was denied by the Pasig City Regional Trial Court yesterday.

In a three-page decision penned by Presiding Judge Elma M. Rafallo-Lingan, the court ruled that it did not see any reason why the POC elections should not push through.

The order reads in part: “While it is true that this Court has the authority to issue a writ of preliminary injunction or a TRO, the exercise thereof shall always be subject to the test of reasonableness. In addition, while there is no question that the issuance of a TRO is addressed to the sound discretion of the Court, this discretion, however, must be exercised based on the grounds and in accordance with the law and the Rules applicable.”

AFTER two rounds of elimination play and a complete field of eight, competition in Season 79 of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) men’s basketball is down to four teams with the semifinals about to begin this week.

Left standing to further their campaign are the De La Salle Green Archers (13-1), Ateneo Blue Eagles (10-4), Far Eastern University Tamaraws (9-5) and Adamson Soaring Falcons (8-6).

The Archers will face the Falcons while the Eagles battle the Tamaraws in the Final Four with La Salle and Ateneo holding twice-to-beat advantages.
