THE deadline for submission of entries for the 8th Monico Cup 21 Under Inter-Barangay basketball tournament has been extended to March 22.
The league opens on April 6.
Eighteen teams of the expected 32 barangays have submitted their line-up which were screened by the Office of Youth and Sports Development (OYSD) headed by Aurelio Puentevella.
Those that have their upper uniform measured and prepared by the official outfitter are Barangays 1, 2, 12, 16,20, 23, 26, 30, 40. The list also includes Banago, Bata, Cabug, Granada, Handumanan, Mandalagan, Montevista, Singcang-Airport and Tangub.
Last year’s Cup finalists Barangay 9 and 19, Villamonte, 6, 7, 10, 14, 18, 22, 24, 29, and 39 are among the entries yet to be processed.
Big villages like Sum-ag, Punta Taytay, Estefania and Taculing are expected to beat the new deadline.
Sports coordinator Jack Marañon said on Thursday that bracketing will be made after all entries are in and approved by the screening committee.
"All games will be played at the Bayc Center while the parade of athletes will commence from the old City Hall passing by Luzurriaga, Lacson, Rizal and San Juan streets," Maranon added.
