Us boys also have reasons to watch hoops aside from seeing sweaty men trash talk each other a la Mark Cardona, dance a la Ryan Arana and just be subjected to displays of overall stupidity a la Joshua Webb. We have the perky, pretty and just flat out awesome courtside reporters. Yes, that doesn't include you, Boom Gonzales.
Since NCAA Season 86 is to start first, let's have a preview of the new courtside reporters in town, special thanks to the ever reliable Facebook for pics. Hahah.
First, the "oldies," the returning courtside reporters:
Trishka Echiverri: San Sebastian
EJ Gamboa: San Beda
Erika Liboro: Arellano
Ef Maronilla: Mapua
Mischi Mediana: JRU (previously AUF)
Now, on to the new ones!
1. Myka Basco
Myka is a 17-year old Communication Arts student of Letran. First seen at ABS-CBN's FreshLook Campus Color 2009, you may have seen her at TV5's Talentadong Pinoy as one-half of the Soda Sisters duo (yes, they really are sisters). Last time I saw them, they sang a Pussycat Dolls song. And it appears that she is friendly, considering she has over 3,000 friends in Facebook. Yay!
Some Myka pics:
2. Michelle Lim
Michelle is CSB's courtside reporter. Aside from the pic, and the fact she "likes" Grey's Anatomy, Friends, How I Met Your Mother, So You Think You Can Dance? and One Tree Hill, I have no info on her. You can follow her on Twitter, though, since it's not private.
3. Zahra Bianca A. Saldua
Zahra is the Perps courtside reporter. I have no pic, but you can check out her Facebook. Somewhere.
4. Bernadette Meneses
For some reason, Myka didn't make it, and I broke it first at PEX (hahah) that Bernadette Meneses will be Letran's courtside reporter this season. Bernadette is a member of Letran's dean's lister organization and is a junior Communications Arts student. But yeah, you didn't go here to know that so here are some pics:
Note: All pictures came from public websites, that can be seen by everybody.
