Crispa’s beginnings were rooted in the old Manila Industrial and Commercial Athletic Association (MICAA). Crispa team then was composed of Reynaldo Alcantara, William Adornado, Rudolph Kutch, Ernesto de Leon, Rodolfo Soriano, Danilo Florencio, Johnny Revilla, Adriano Papa, Jr., Virgilio Abarrientos, Danilo Pecache, Domingo Celis, Jr and Manuel Jocson. I vividly remembered Jun Papa shooting the lights down with his 30 to 35 foot jumpers: Danny Florencio's magical and penetrating moves under the basket; Adornado's calculated jumpers from medium range; Revilla's rugged style of play. The Redmanizers were managed by sportsman Danny Floro and was coached for many years by the legendary Virgilio "Baby" Dalupan. The team won countless titles during their amateur days and likewise ruled the professional league in the mid 70s, but composed of a new breed of cage stars led by Fortunato 'Atoy' Co, Philip Cezar and Alberto 'Abet' Guidaben. They won 13 PBA championships in the span of nine years.
