    Kings playing on Christmas Day?

    The PBA is planning to hold games on Dec. 25 and 26.

    “MALAMANG, nandoon ang Ginebra,” PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial said when asked about the possible PBA Christmas Day schedule.

    The league plans to hold back-to-back playdates on Dec. 25 and 26 since the dates fall on a weekend.


    Sister team and top rival Magnolia is among the teams being considered as Ginebra opponents on the special date.

    “Tignan natin. Ang schedule natin is per week. Tignan natin kung ano ang ikakasaya ng mga fans,” said Marcial.

    The Christmas Day games will be the league's first in four years, since Barangay Ginebra defeated Magnolia, 89-78, in 2017 at the Philippine Arena.

    Charles Tiu as Mighty coach


    CSB coach Charles Tiu is still part of Meralco coach Norman Black's staff

    CHARLES Tiu remains with the Meralco coaching staff under Norman Black even as he handles College of St. Benilde in the NCAA.

    Tiu, former coach of the Nueva Ecija Rice Vanguards in the MPBL, was named new Blazers coach last week.

    There should be no conflict with Tiu’s appointment as coach of the St. Benilde Blazers as members of PBA coaching staff are allowed to handle college teams as in the case of Barangay Ginebra’s Olsen Racela, who mentors the FEU Tamaraws.

    “Charles has the blessing of Meralco management on that,” said Meralco Bolts team manager Paolo Trillo.

    Tiu came on board at Meralco during the last Philippine Cup.
