Alumni hoops eye bigger tournament-A A +A
Wednesday, December 4, 2013
AFTER the regular seasons, players from the different high school alumni basketball associations can look forward to a tougher and much bigger tournament—the Inter-Alumni Basketball Championship.
Sacred Heart-Ateneo Alumni Basketball Athletic Association (Shaabaa) president Marcelino Co will be meeting the representatives of the Cebu Eastern College Alumni Basketball Association (Cecaba) and University of San Carlos Boys High Alumni Basketball Association (USCBHABA) this week for an organizational meeting.
Cecaba founder Chester Cokaliong is willing to hold the tournament while USCBHABA president Rocky Alcoseba is also eager to make the event happen.
The first inter-alumni tournament was made almost a decade ago with then USCBHABA president Jonathan Guardo and Cokaliong spearheading the event.
However, the tournament lasted only for one season.
Co prefers to hold the event among the top four finishers of each organization in its initial staging.
