The organizational meeting for the 3rd Annual Shirley’s Coffee Shop Invitational Basketball League set for yesterday has been reset to tomorrow, Sept. 7, 6:30pm at the Shirley’s Coffee Shop in Garapan.
League coordinator Boy Lingcaso said he was forced to postpone Monday’s meeting because majority of participating teams were not able to confirm their attendance.
Lingcaso said so far 12 teams have already confirmed their participation in the caging. The list includes inaugural champion Micronesian Brokers, Inc., Mobil, PSS/McGraw-Hill, Hyatt Regency Saipan, Aqua Resort Club, Fiesta Resort & Spa, Pacific Trading, Wushin, Grillin’, DFS, GPPC, and host Shirley’s.
Each team is allowed to recruit only five players outside their companies.
Organizers are planning to hold games in the Shirley’s caging every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
Lingcaso said teams rosters and if possible the $500 entrance fee for the competition should be submitted at the meeting.
Last year, 10 teams joined the second edition of the Shirley’s caging with Pacific Islands Club winning over Aqua Resort Club in the best-of-three title series. In 2009, MBI swept Advance in the best-of-three finals,
