More hardcourt action awaits Pinoy hoops fans overseas as ABS-CBN continues to bring all the exciting games, highlights, and drama from the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) and the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA), now streaming abroad via iWantTFC.
The UAAP fully opens its 85th season to bring the best young Filipino athletes from participating universities in their quest for glory and for fans to cheer on their proud alma maters.
Tipping off the competition anew are the men’s and women’s basketball tournaments—with the UP Fighting Maroons looking to continue their triumphant momentum from a season ago, while the NU Lady Bulldogs seek to cement their legacy in hopes of extending their undefeated streak since 2014.
On the other hand, the PBA recently commenced its Commissioner’s Cup, with teams bringing in top import reinforcements, including Justin Brownlee, Earl Clark, Quincy Miller, Lester Prosper, Nick Rakocevic, Cameron Oliver, and Thomas Robinson, among others.
But, the stakes for the Commissioner’s trophy get tougher for the prominent Pinoy ball clubs as this year’s installment features a formidable guest team also up for title contention, the Bay Area Dragons, featuring a stacked roster led by Andrew Nicholson, Myles Powell, and the towering 7’5″ big-man Liu Chuanxing.
Pinoy hoops fans and global audiences alike can catch the games from UAAP Season 85 15 minutes after its live local broadcast every Wednesday, plus Saturday and Sunday afternoons for men’s basketball games and weekend mornings for women’s fixtures on iWantTFC Premium, exclusively available for viewers outside the Philippines.
