PBA conference chronology

The 2002 Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Governors' Cup, also known as the 2002 Samsung-PBA Governors' Cup for sponsorship reasons, was the first conference of the 2002 PBA season. It started on February 10 and ended on May 26, 2002. The tournament requires two imports per each team.[1]

Rule changes[edit]

To prepare the national team for the upcoming 2002 Asian Games in Busan, South Korea, the following FIBA rules were adopted for this conference:

  • Zone defense will be allowed.
  • Total time of the game would be reduced to 40 minutes, 10-minute quarters.
  • The time allowed for an offensive team to cross the halfcourt line was reduced from 10 to eight seconds.

In addition, the pool of the national team was distributed into two teams: the Selecta-RP team and the Happee-RP team.
