What are the chances of the Bicol Volcanoes in the MPBL Lakan Cup?
What’s the main reason in the team’s participation in the fledgling community-based league and who are the men and women behind this newest but hottest team from Bicol?
The answers will be known when the Volcanoes take centerstage in the 31st edition of the “Usapang Sports” presented by the Tabloids Organization in Philippine Sports (TOPS) on July 18 at the National Press Club in Intramuros, Manila.
Bicol Volcanoes president Gil Orense and vice president Mark Tan will attend the 10 a.m. session, along with the team’s major backers, LCC Department Store president Ed Ponce nd LCC Supermarket head Eric Poiret.
Also joning the weekly sports forum sponsored by the Philippine Sports Commission, National Press Club, PAGCOR, Community Basketball Association and HG Guyabano Tea Leaf Drinks are Bicol assistant coach Ronnie Dojillo and players.
Bannered by ex-PBA star Ronjay Buenafe, Chris Lalata and Jerome Garcia, the Monel Kallos-mentored Volcanoes hold a respectable 4-2 win-loss record in the 15-team South Division.
TOPS president Ed Andaya of People’s Tonight is inviting all officers and members of TOPS, as well as friends in the sports community to attend the session shown on Facebook live via Glitter Livestream.
