THE Senate Sentinels vowed to intensify their plays against the Bureau of Customs Transformers on Sunday and expressed their support to Kuya Daniel Razon’s innovative basketball league.
Senators Sonny Angara and Joel Villanueva lead the Sentinels’ roster.
“Salamat sa lahat ng sumusubaybay sa UNTV, sa lahat ng sumusuporta sa Senate Sentinels. Mabuhay po kayo, God bless,” Sen. Angara said.
Sen. Joel Villanueva, on the other hand, said: “We’re going to have fun so, kudos to UNTV for having this special league, talagang saludo kami.”
The Senators’ team showed last week that they can go up against other teams in the UNTV Cup Executive Face Off.
They even handed the DOJ Justice Boosters their first loss on June 4 in a 84-77 victory.
“Nagkataon sa mga nakaraang game kulang tayo ng tao. Ngayon, medyo kumpleto, tamang tama hindi masyadong napagod. Kasi last two games kinapos kami sa last quarter. So ito, medyo may gasoline pa kumbaga,” Sen. Angara said.
Sen. Joel Villanueva added: “Great addition si Senator Angara dahil may isa pa na puwedeng magdala ng bola, isang leader na kahit wala sa stats ‘yung makikita mo sa kaniya, he gives so much sa team.”
On the other hand, the Transformers, led by the BOC Chief, Commissioner Nicanor Faeldon, expressed their commitment to the league despite their standing, in the name of public service.
“We’re not here just to win but to have some fun and to support the league, the [UNTV] Cup. Serbisyong bayan ‘to so napakaganda. So kahit alam naman namin na from the start, wala naman talaga kami pool ng players but we still fill in our players para masaya.”
