Dear Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy,
First of all, we would like to thank the Almighty Father through the Son for JMC KINGS took home their biggest win at the 64th National Students Basketball Championship (NSBC), also recognized as the National Inter-Secondary and National Inter-Collegiate Championships 2012 in Dagupan City.
With this remarkable victory, the team will be the first from Davao City and Mindanao to represent the Philippines in the 9th Asian University Basketball Championship for men this July 2012 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The Kings emerged victorious among the ten collegiate teams from different regions with a record of 8-1 opposing Emilio Aguinaldo College (EAC) in the finals with an exigent score of 80-78.
JMC Kings had rigorous bouts against the other teams which they won 68-58 versus Philippine Christian University, scoring 69-64 against University of Luzon, landslide marks of 80-40 and 97-48 against Saint Louis University Baguio and San Pedro College of Laguna, respectively. Marking 86-80 against Lyceum of the Philippines University, 93-85 alongside Emilio Aguinaldo College, and against University of Cebu with 72-76.
Earlier today, a motorcade was initiated in the honor of the Kings in the major thoroughfares of the city. This is also in recognition of the honor that they brought to the city and Mindanao. Now, the team will represent the Philippines in the 9th Asian University Basketball Championship in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Following the motorcade was a very successful press conference attended by different media practitioners from print, radio and TV networks. After the press, they paid a courtesy call to the head of the city at the 9th regular session hall and were commended for their exceptional performance and excellence in the recently concluded 64th NSBC. They were recognized as young heroes worthy of emulation as stated in the message delivered to the council by SK Chairman Federation President Jashera L. Gonzales.
With this, we give back the glory and thanksgiving to the Almighty Father through the Son!
