For league Chief Operating Officer Rocky Chan, ending the year with a tournament for the south’s basketball players is their way of giving livelihood to the players before Christmas.
“After taking a few months off, we are excited to start again so we can provide livelihoods to our players, coaches, and the people in Pagadian,” said Chan. “We definitely want to end the year right with this tournament.”
The rest of the member teams from Visayas took a leave of absence for the meantime but vowed to return come the 2022 season.
The tournament will have a double round robin elimination round with the top team automatically gaining a semis berth.
