BACOLOD City – Former Ateneo Blue Eagles team captain and television personality Chris Tiu will address student-athletes when the Negros Occidental Private Schools Sports, Cultural and Education Association (NOPSSCEA) opens today at the Colegio San Agustin Gym here.

Tiu, who recently joined the roster of the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA), will speak before athletes from more than 50 NOPSSCEA member schools.

Sports Task Force chairman Anthony Carlo Agustin said Tiu could watch the basketball match-up after the opening ceremonies.

Scheduled to play 5 pm today are the West Negros University Mustangs and the University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos Rams to open the second round of eliminations in men’s basketball.

The 27-year-old Tiu studied BS Management Engineering and Minor in Chinese Studies at Ateneo de Manila University while being a key player of the Eagles from 2003 to 2008.

He was part of the UAAP men’s champion team in 2008 with Bacoleño Noy Baclao as one of his teammates.

Tiu was a two-time UAAP Mythical 5 and All-Star Player and won twice the UAAP-NCAA 3-point shootout King title.

Tiu also served as Sangguniang Kabataan chairman of Makati from 2001 to 2007 and initiated various programs such as sports clinics and tournaments, arts and crafts seminars, and outreach activities.
