THE Your Basketball Athletic Club, recognizing the contribution of member/official of Jake Azucena, will be staging a basketball cup in his honor starting Saturday, August 2 at 5:30 p.m. at the West Negros University gym.
Azucena, who have been active in the organization since its creation way back two decades ago, was given the recognition instead of having its "President's Cup" this season.
