Last July 31, 2010 at the Capitol Parish Gym, along Escario Street, Cebu, was the launching of the 5th Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) 2010 Mayor’s Cup Basketball Tournament.Young lawyers gathered to meet and participate in the basketball tournament.Newly elected Mayor Michael "Mike" Lopez Rama was also present for the event’s opening.
The dynamic lawyers were entertained by a raffle draw and a dance performed by blah blah blah. Sinha Bahia de Capoeira, an international group originated from Brazil, also did an astonishing performance of their art with lively music and dance, and stunning acrobatics. Atty. Raphael Yap, a Capoeira practitioner of the group, did a fantastic job as he introduced the martial art to his fellow lawyers by showing off his skills.
As the lawyers enjoyed their ‘sisig’ during lunch, the Pañeros won 74-45, bringing the Eagles down. The Young Lawyer’s Association of Cebu (YLAC) swept the Bros N’ Law, 83-68, while Pecandela also won over Mt. Zion, 67-61. The tournament was concluded as the two-time champion Super Idols was blown by the Ligitators with a score of 61-74.
