The Condura Cup, 2nd Conference Invitational 2013, organized by Basketball Unified Sports Group for 40 and above basketball aficionados, reels off tomorrow at the Bacolod Tay Tung High School Gym. BUSG adviser Bing Soyao said in a press release.
The tournament will feature former PBA player Wilmer Ong, who is best remembered by basketballs fans as the favorite enforcer of Robert Jaworski in the Ginebra team during his heydays, Soyao said.
Six teams led by host squads, Sharp and Panasonic, square off against NHOJs of Junjun Chua, Diding's Eatery (ABC) of Bobby Regalado, NBG of Bert Pabon and Rey Salido's PESO BAYS CLUB. Former PBA referee Patrick Canizares and his group will employ a 3-man officiating team to ensure a peaceful and well-covered tournament, Soyao said.
Sharp-BUSG opens the league against Diding's Eatery-ABC at 11 a.m., while PESO BAYS Club tackles Panasonic-BUSG at 1 p.m. At 2:30 p.m., NHOJs tests Negros Basketball Group with succeeding games played on Sundays only.
Soyao added that this tournament has a single elimination round format. The number 3 and 6 teams in the ranking will clash in the quarterfinal with the winner earning the right to challenge the number 1 squad, who will have a twice-to-beat advantage in the semifinal.
The other quarterfinal match-up will pit team No. 4 against team No. 5 with the winner going against No. 2 in the semis.
Winners in the semis will then dispute the title in a knockout game while the losers will play for third place.
The champion team will bring home a trophy plus P3,000 cash prize; P2,000 for second and P1,000 for third.*
