There was some concern when Manny Pacquiao complained of cramps in his left leg during his routine training here last week. With less than a month before he climbs onto the ring to face WBO welterweight champion Jessie Vargas in Las Vegas on Nov. 5, surely Pacquiao couldn’t be bogged down by cramps.

Although the UAAP Board ruled NU center Matthew Aquino ineligible to play in the senior men’s basketball tournament this season, he still managed to log four games on the strength of a TRO that his father and former PBA star Marlou went to court for.

The past week, news outlets and social media have brought to the fore the upcoming Philippine Olympic Committee elections. And although the focus generally is on who is running for president, there are many things to consider aside from who else will be seated on the POC board.
