Makati Super Crunch sustains good showing
Makati posts a steady showing at Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League.
Paolo Orbeta, the owner of the Makati Super Crunch said a potential investor is coming in to become part-owner of his basketball squad.
“Because of our good standing in the MPBL, our team has become more attractive to the market, be it in sponsorship, or possible partner in owning the squad,” Orbeta said in an exclusive interview.
Orbeta didn’t disclose details neither reveal the extent of the probable partnership, but that sounds good news for a Super Crunch team that is in solid contention for another playoff run.
Setting aside business dealings, the Super Crunch kept themselves in a good position for another quarterfinal berth following their latest win over the Biñan City Heroes Monday night.
The Super Crunch have improved their win-loss record to 11-3 and firmed up their hold of the third spot in the tough northern division of this tournament put up by Senator Manny Pacquiao with PBA legend and former MVP Kenneth Duremdes serving as commissioner.
For Orbeta, it’s still going to be business as usual for Makati, which is more determined to bounce back and make up for its early ouster in the playoffs last season.
Last season, the Super Crunch, who entered the playoffs as the second-seeded team in the northern division, were eliminated by the No.7 ranked Quezon City Capitals.
“Gusto naming bumawi from last season’s playoff setback,” added Orbeta. “Hopefully, we’ve learned our lessons.”
