  • The thud of the basketball on the court mixed with the running footsteps of the players, amid  the cheers and shouts from the bleachers, marked the Championship Games of the First Ronald Ordinario Memorial Friendship Basketball League last Sunday, July 3. Team Usana bested Team D’Hypers with a 70-59 victory, to emerge as the Champion with Team D’Hypers as First Runner Up.

    Team Budget played against Team Raptors, 88- 62 and won the Second Runner Up.

    Ms. Nie-ann Amante Ordinario, Migrante member and widow of Ron “Nonoy” Ordinario, handed out the Championship trophy to the Usana team and medals to each of the Usana players. She was assisted by Migrante BC’s Leo Alejandria and the referees.

    Jerwin Ibit of Team Usana took home several awards, starting with the League’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) trophy. Jerwin scored best in the Three Point Shooting Contest, which came with a medal and cash prize. He also won the Best Point Guard Medal in the League.

    Named as the Finals Most Valuable Player was Darwin Colita of Team Usana.

    The Team’s Most Valuable Player trophy,  given to a player in each team, was awarded to Kristian Asuncion of Usana, Sherwin Tenorio of D’Hypers, Rhenz Navalta of Budget, Jayson Velasquez of Raptors, Jerole Billedo of Black Riders, Jay-R Valdez of ShotFired and Ted Ferrer of Calibrators.

    For the first time in the history of the Migrante Basketball league, Migrante awarded the   trophy for the Best Coach to Ben Lopez of Team Budget for his leadership and work in building excellent team spirit.

    Migrante thanks the seven (7) teams in the Friendship League: Team Budget with team captain Mhark Santos, Team Black Riders with team captain Jerole Billedo, Team Calibrators with team captain Ted Ferrer, Team D’Hypers with coaches Eric Publico and Sherwin Tenorio, Team Raptors by Jayson Velasquez, Team Shotfired with team captain Jay-R Valdez and Team Usana with team captains Boyet Dumaliang and Kristian Asuncion.

    The First Ronald Ordinario Memorial Friendship Basketball League honours the hard work of Migrante BC’s Ronald “Nonoy” Ordinario who served as the organizer, the playing coach and basketball commissioner of the Migrante Basketball League since its beginnings in 2009.

    “All the coaches and basketball players know Ron. Having the friendship basketball league named in Ron’s honour is a wonderful tribute to his work in Migrante’s sports and recreation activities. Before his tragic accident, we were planning on the next round of basketball games, so I know that Ronald will be happy to know that the basketball games are on and that we are all here,” said Jon Carolino, coach, good friend and fellow Migrante member.

    The League acknowledges the work of the League referees: Jon Carolino, Mel Sumang, Hermie de Guzman, and Fred Caacbay who have refereed the games since the basketball games. Migrante thanks its volunteers and their families for making sure the games happened every Sunday at the New Westminster Glenbrook Middle School Gym since it started in mid-April.
