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.
