Before the collegiate wars commence anew, the UAAP-NCAA Press Corps is set to honor the heroes of the past season in the 2018 Chooks-to-Go Collegiate Basketball Awards.

Father’s Day without the patriarch: Sonny pays tribute to Edong Angara

In a family, the most celebrated parent-to-children relationships are that of a mother to her son, and a father to her daughter -- hence the idea of a mama's boy and a papa's girl. Most men who prefer to keep a macho image veer away from discussing their relationship with their father. In reality, though, the topic could make even the toughest men cry, especially on Father's Day, when they can soften their macho act and delve in the emotions of a heart-to-heart conversation between father and son. For Sen. Sonny Angara, who poured his heart out in his Father's Day message, this Father's Day felt a little weird, as he had not yet gotten used to being without his father, forme...Keep on reading: Father’s Day without the patriarch: Sonny pays tribute to Edong Angara.....»»

LOOK: NBA Live 19 to feature Manila s The Tenement court

Pinoy NBA gamers will get a special treat when the latest edition of NBA Live, NBA Live 19, launches later this year. The game's "The One" mode is going international in NBA Live 19, and one of the courts where your player can ball out on will be Manila's own "The Tenement," located at Fort Bonifacio. Here's how the game's official blog describes the locale: Originally built as a housing project in the 60s, the Fort Bonifacio Tenement (affectionately known as The Tenement) almost didn’t make it to NBA LIVE. In 2014, the National Housing Authority sought to evict all of the residents, claiming the buildings were prone to earthquakes and overall unsafe. Residents pushed back against the eviction order, and as The Tenement gained attention and acclaim in the streetball community, the government relented. A large part of the appeal of The Tenement is not just the court but the community that surrounds it. Surrounded by the towering housing units, every move (and every mistake) on the court can be seen. In a community where both circumstance and architecture demand people come together as one, The Tenement court is at the heart of it all. Also featured are Paris' Jordan Qua 54 and Brazil's Rio Favela Court. Here's more from the game's official site about balling out in The Streets: Take advantage of the opportunity to play in The Streets World Tour on top streetball courts across the globe. With different rules, courts, and players, the challenges never end – and neither do the rewards. The stakes are high, and you’ll have the entire social media world watching. This is your chance to turn yourself into a star. Don’t forget about Live Events either, including the return of LIVESTRIKE, which gives you the chance to win exclusive, rare sneakers and threads. But that’s not all. Play something new every day by yourself or with friends as the game evolves. The free demo of NBA Live 19 comes out on August 24, with the game dropping on September 7.
