Regular season MVP Fernando "Pando" Muleta and defensive whiz Jawn Joyner of champion Visminda-Country House, center Ronald Delos Reyes and playmaker Randy Arnedo of runner-up Cabalen-RP Construction and Andres "Jhun" Estolas of Mobil-LIPS were named to the  All-tournament team of the 2003 UFO Miller Lite Cup.

Muleta paced the 2003 season in steals and led this year's champion team in scoring and assists. The 5'7" dynamo averaged 2.8 steals a game to compliment numbers of 18.1 points and 4.6 assists per game.
The scoring and assists figures were enough to rank Muleta eighth and second best in the said categories. In addition, he also made more than 67 percent of his free throws and averaged a triple conversion each game, which landed him on the top 15 of both categories.

If Muleta was the undisputed Sultan of Swipe his teammate Joyner took home the Sultan of Swat honor. The 6'0"  normed 3.1 blocks per game, which was close to two blocks ahead of the nearest player.
Joyner's talents, however, were not confined to the defensive side of the court. He also excelled in offense and averaged a team third best 14.4 markers an outing. Joyner also rebounded like crazy and averaged a league fourth-best 7.7 rebounds per game.

Delos Reyes, for his part, finished second in the scoring race with 25.2 points per game. The 6'3"also made 77 percent of his free throws and shot 1.2 triples a game to finish eighth and 11th, respectively on the said offensive categories. He also ranked eighth in rebounds per game averaging 7.1 boards.
 
If Delos Reyes represented Cabalen's offensive firepower, Arnedo was the team's blue-collar worker. The lanky 5'9" point forward averaged just 11 points per game but led the team in assists and steals. Arnedo averaged 3.1 dimes and 2.2 heists per game, allowing him to rank fourth-best in both categories. He also made more than 68 percent of his attempts from the 15-foot line to rank 10th in the league.

Estolas, meanwhile, emerged as a real offensive and defensive force in just his second season in the league. The 5'7" do-it-all guard paced the 2003 UFO Miller Lite Cup in scoring with 29 points per game.
He also finished third in assists with 4 assists and fourth in free throw average at better than 80 percent per game. Estolas also was the ninth-best thief during the season with 2 steals per game, fifth-best in 3-point conversions at 1.8 a contest and normed 4.7 rebounds.

All five mythical team members, except for Estolas, received their trophies from Philippine Consul General Wilfredo L. Maximo during the 2003 UFO Miller Lite Cup awards presentation Sunday, which immediately followed the championship game won by Visminda over Cabalen.

In addition to their Mythical 5 citations, Muleta, Joyner and Estolas also received other individual awards during the evening. Muleta got the regular season MVP and best in steals awards, Joyner received the best in blocks award, while Estolas took home the top scorer honor.

Other honorees that night were MIFICPA-Power's Ed Palma for best free throw shooter, Cabalen's Paul Magcalas for best three-point shooter for the season, MDX-3s Auto Parts' Bong Malasarte for best in rebounds, Cabalen's Ryan Mendoza for Most Improved Player, SIP-Verizon's James Villacrusis for Rookie of the Year, Visminda's Banjo Basila for Championship MVP, and Bayani-Tropical Instant Press' Joey Villegas for Rainbow King.

The 2003 UFO Miller Lite Cup organizing committee, which was headed by the trio of Ed Reyes, Leo Canedo and Ramon Awit, also presented Cabalen-RP Construction-Transamerica the sportsmanship award for their model and exemplary behavior during the season.

Reyes, Canedo and Awit also assisted Maximo in presenting trophies to champion team Visminda, first runner-up Cabalen, second runner-up SIP-Verizon, a

Vibes banked on a good start en route to a 64-51 title win over the Ol'Aces 2 in the U25 division of the 2016 TanHoldings Christmas Basketball Tournament last Saturday at the Gillette Multipurpose Gymnasium.
