NCAA Season 94: Rolly, you will be missed

NCAA coaches and stars were one in saying that the passing of Rolly Manlapaz, considered as the voice of the college basketball, was a great loss in the tight-knit community. The former disk jockey and longtime UAAP and NCAA basketball barker, who also saw stints in volleyball games passed away Thursday after a bout with ALS. He was 58. “I just love the way he calls games,” said Lyceum of the Philippines head coach Topex Robinson. “Sometimes he makes it look like spooky by that sound but then again basketball will never be the same without that voice.” Manlapaz’s last stint with the NCAA was two years ago in Season 92 and called his last game four months ago in UAAP Season 80 women's volleyball Finals. His career spanned for two decades.  “I’m sure he will be remembered not only by the NCAA but by the whole basketball community,” he added. The voice that defined college and amateur basketball in this generation made even the most boring or one-sided game lively with his jewel of a voice and antics why calling out plays. Manlapaz can make an exciting game even more colorful, adding a different flavor and flare that only the stadium legend can deliver. Manlapaz also endeared himself with players and coaches by calling out their full name instead of their nicknames. “Sayang mami-miss namin ang mga sigaw niya dito sa Arena especially when he calls me Teodorico not Boyet. We’re gonna miss them,” said San Beda coach Boyet Fernandez. But Manlapaz’s greatest contribution in the game was his knack of baptizing players with lasting monikers. One of the cagers that got that honor was reigning NCAA Most Valuable Player CJ Perez.  Manlapaz gave Perez the moniker ‘Baby Beast’ when he was still playing for San Sebastian College’s high school team. Perez got the moniker for showing the same aggressiveness and tenacity of former Stag and now PBA star Calvin Abueva while wearing the same No. 7 jersey.  “Kay Sir Rolly nanggaling yung ‘Baby Beast’ na yun, noong FilOil pa lang ata yun,” Perez said. “It’s an honor na naging part siya ng mga league dito. Sobrang happy kami na nabibigyan kami ng moniker dahil sa kanya. Lumalabas ang pangalan namin dahil sa kanya.” San Beda’s Robert Bolick also shared his feelings on the passing of a friend. “Nagulat nga ako na ganyan ang nangyari akala ko naging OK na siya,” he said. “Nakaka-miss ‘yun kasi nakakagana maglaro ‘yun eh.” “Kaya ngayon ayoko na magganun-ganun (na layup). Dati kapag gumaganun ako siya kaagad yung, “Oh dipsy doo!” Ngayon medyo di na siya ganoon kasaya, nawawala ang saya,” he added. Manlapaz according to Bolick made any player perform better with his adrenaline-pumping calls. “Kahit sa UAAP ganoon ‘yan eh. ‘Pag tinawag nya ang pangalan mo parang feeling mo nasa NBA ka eh,” he said. “Maganda ang feeling kapag pumasok ka sa court. Nakakapagpaganda ng laro. Barker yun ang trabaho niya.” Bolick also remembered all the fun moments he had with Manlapaz. “Kahit noong La Salle pa ako kahit nasa bench lang ako tinatawag pa rin nya ako. Di ko nga alam eh (kung bakit ako tinatawag),” joked Bolick, drawing laughter from reporters. “Talagang may pinagsamahan din kaming dalawa. May koneksyon din kami.” “Nu’ng sa La Salle noong nag-championship kami sa UST, kapag nagwa-warmup kami ako pa rin tinatawag niya. Di ko nga alam, di naman ako naglalaro,” he continued. “Nahihiya tuloy akong mag-warmup.” “Nakaka-miss talaga yun and hopefully nasa magandang lugar na siya.”     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles          .....»»

Justine Brownlee: I want to be naturalized

Aside from playing for Brgy. Ginebra 'forever,' Justin Brownlee also wants to be a Filipino and be in the Philippines 'permanently.' Brownlee has been playing in the PBA for Ginebra since 2016. He has also represented the Philippines in the Asean Basketball League alongside Renaldo Balkman where they bagged the gold. This year, he scored his third Ginebra championship and the PBA Best Import award. With all of that success factored in, ABS-CBN Sports asked if he considers the Philippines as his basketball home. Brownlee did not take any of it. Instead, he topped it. "Not only basketball [home]. I want to consider it my home. Period." "You know, I wish I could live here all year round but unfortunately, [I can't] because of government rules and things like that but I wish I could be at home permanently," he said minutes before he spent quality time with fans Sunday afternoon in the Ginebra Victory Party held in Pasig. Team Governor Alfrancis Chua added on this. He joked during the program saying that Brownlee is no longer going to be an import next conference. "Hindi na si Brownlee ang import dahil gagawin na natin siyang Pilipino!," he joked which prompted the fans to chant GI-NEB-RA. But Chua then clarified with the media that if ever Brownlee's naturalization pushes through, it has nothing to do with his basketball career but more on his personal life. After all, naturalized Filipinos can not still play in the league as a local. "Sinabi ni Brownlee sa amin kaharap ang buong team, ‘Boss, I want to be naturalized.’" "Brownlee loves the Philippines. He told me many times na kung matapos siya ng paglalaro, he wants to stay in the Philippines and he wants to be naturalized. To make the long story short, he loves the Philippines and he wants to stay here for good." Chua then alluded to the likes of Norman Black who stayed in the Philippines for good after a stellar import career. Brownlee's feelings towards the country just goes to show how great it is to play for the Filipino hoops community. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @cruzdanine.....»»

Mixed feelings for NLEX’s Kevin Alas as he takes on father Louie against Phoenix

When the All Filipino Conference of the 43rd PBA season returns to action on January 7th, the 2-0 NLEX Road Warriors go up against the 1-1 Phoenix Fuel Masters. More than just a pivotal early season matchup for both squads, it will also be NLEX gunner Kevin Alas’ first look at Phoenix’s new head coach: his dad Louie. “Siguro it’s a mixed feeling, syempre I want him to be successful, at the same time, pag kalaban ko siya,gusto ko din siyang talunin,” Kevin shared with ABS-CBN Sports. “Pero when it comes to basketball, we’re both professionals, alam namin na walang bigayan, we have to get the job done.” While the Alas boys have been on opposing teams before, with Louie previously serving as an assistant for Alaska, Sunday will be the first time that he’ll be the head coach against his second-born in Kevin. “Excited kasi to think, college career ko siya coach ko, and then coming to the PBA, lagi ko siyang nakakalaban.” Alas added. And of course, being that Kevin and Louie will be on opposing sides on the court, the playful banter begins at home. “Actually meron, kahapon, syempre nag-break kami for the New Year, eh may parang workout place kami sa bahay.” Kevin shares. “Sabi ko ‘workout muna ako, pinag-hahandaan ko kayo eh.’” Of course, Coach Louie, being the veteran, tenured mentor that he is, needed to clap back a bit. “Biniro niya ako: ‘Hindi mo makukuha sa ganyan ‘yan. Kahit mag ganyan ka, hindi mo kami tatalunin.’” Kevin added. “Ganyan, biruan lang, tapos nagtatanong siya kung ano na yung gameplan namin, ganun.” While playful shots have been fired at home, make no mistake that both Kevin and Coach Louie won’t be holding anything back come game time......»»

BLOGTABLE: Biggest challenges McCutchen faces in new role?

NBA.com blogtable The NBA recently pulled referee Monty McCutchen from the active pool of officials and made him the head of referee development and training. What do you see as the biggest challenges or issues facing McCutchen right now? * * * David Aldridge: That there aren't more Monty McCutchens in the pipeline to take his place as the NBA's best referee. This isn't the usual insipid conspiracy theory talk you hear from fans of every team around playoff time. I think the officiating in the NBA, on average, is pretty solid. And I certainly don't see the grudges and/or feuds that players had with refs back in the day, when it was clear a certain ref wasn't going to give a certain player a fair shake. But just about all of the top veteran guys have left in the last few years: Joey Crawford, Danny Crawford, Bob Delaney, Steve Javie and Bennett Salvatore. You weren't worried about a playoff or Finals game when they were out there (and, again, I know that there are fans who have beefs with each one of them for one reason or another). There are several good refs who've worked Finals in the last few years: Zach Zarba, Tony Brothers, Mike Callahan (and, yes, I know he and his fellow refs didn't have a great night in Game 4 of The Finals) and Derrick Stafford. But as the referee pool has gotten younger over the past few years -- a necessity, to be sure -- there are complaints from players and coaches that there's less flexibility among some of the younger refs, who won't let people question calls and/or let off steam, another necessity that veteran refs understood. It's not "showing up" a ref to think they got a call wrong, or at least ask them what they saw. The communication gap between some -- some -- refs and players and coaches needs to be closed. Steve Aschburner: Monty McCutchen’s biggest challenge, in my opinion, is thathe’s got a work force with a morale problem. Few workers in our society are as poked, prodded and second-guessed as NBA referees, who face heavy scrutiny long before and after the opening tap and the final horn. There are the in-game replays, the L2M reports the day after and all their individual performance reviews. A lack of trust with league HQ has been rattling around for years as management’s policing tactics and executive ranks have changed. The recent move by the players union, asking for a sit-down to complain about some refs’ alleged harshness and dismissiveness, felt like piling on an already beleaguered group, all because some players’ feelings were bruised. Yes, the refs are paid well. But they’ve been catching hell from all sides, and McCutchen might want to start there. Shaun Powell: The biggest issue is one that follows every head of officiating: How can you train referees to make accurate judgments on a fast-paced game that involves a degree of contact? There's no harder game to ref than the NBA and maybe McCutchen might want to press the league office on hiring a fourth ref. (My biggest pet peeve is referees refusing to call palming violations and also allowing players to take a step-and-a-half and then a hop before shooting or passing off. But that genie is out of the bottle.) John Schuhmann: As McCutchen improves the quality of NBA officiating as a whole, consistency should be a priority. Consistency from ref to ref, as well as consistency from player to player, from game to game, and from the first minute of the first quarter to the last minute of the fourth. And let's crack down on discontinued dribbles, too. Sekou Smith: The biggest issue these days isn't rules-related but relationship-related. Finding a way to cool off players and officials going at each other during the course of games has been the biggest officiating problem for years now. We've seen it again already this season with the rash of ejections, Shaun Livingston and Courtney Kirkland going head-to-head and plenty of other instances where the player-official relationship got out of hand. It's a bad look all around and sets the tone for the way players and officials react to each other all the way down to the grassroots level. Anyone charged with developing and training officials need to make repairing that relationship is a top priority......»»

Proud ako na girlfriend ako ni Bolick -- Aby Marano

Proud ako na girlfriend niya. A simple statement that sums up all the feelings of Aby Marano on bae Robert Bolick after he led the San Beda Red Lions to their second straight title, Thursday night in the 93rd NCAA seniors basketball competition. The former De La Salle University women’s volleyball standout wasn’t at the Big Dome when Bolick unleashed his ‘beast mode’ performance in the final minutes of Game 2 of the best-of-three championship series against Lyceum of the Philippines University. Marano had a game with F2 Logistics in the 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix when the Red Lions captured their 21st title overall with a 92-82 win to finish off the Pirates. “Kinakabahan nga ako kanina kasi gusto ko talaga panoorin,” she said. “Nagtatanong-tanong ako kanina tapos may random guy na lumipat sa akin tas binalita na champion na nga daw.” “Parang nawala 'yung kaba ko, naging mas light 'yung feeling ko noong game,” added Marano, who herself had a great game against Generika-Ayala. Inspired by Bolick’s heroics, Tyang Aby finished with six markers to help the unbeaten Cargo Movers sweep the Lifesavers, 25-21, 25-17, 25-17.  Though she was not there to cheer for Bolick, Marano, who was able to watch the series opener last Friday, never doubted her long-time boyfriend’s capabilities and knew that he’ll be able to deliver for the SBC. “Last year, ganoon din 'yung nangyari sa amin - may game din ako tapos di ko napanood 'yung Finals niya,” she said. “Naging positive lang kami. Whether I'm there or not, tiwala na lang na maglalaro siya nang mabuti.” After the game, Bolick thanked Marano for pushing and inspiring him to achieve his goal of giving the Red Lions another crown.   Marano was just proud to see Bolick, who transferred from De La Salle University to SBC three years ago, reap the rewards of his hard work. “Ang sarap-sarap sa pakiramdam kasi nga nasubaybayan ko 'yung struggles niya dati,” said Marano. “Every day na magkasama kami, kita mong nandoon 'yung depression. “ “Ngayon, makikita mo na bumalik talaga lahat ng confidence niya and kung sino talaga siya as a basketball player,” added Marano. “Napakasarap sa feeling.” And how would she describe her feeling as a girlfriend of an NCAA champion?  Marano had a straightforward answer. “Masasabi ko lang na sobrang proud ako na girlfriend ako ni Bolick kasi nakikita ko talaga 'yung sarili ko sa kanya,” she said. BMDC (beast mode don’t care) naman din talaga siya magalaro.”     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles   .....»»

PVL: Lady Eagles weather Lady Falcons upset scare for back-to-back wins

Ateneo-Motolite survived an upset scare from a very game Adamson-Akari, 17-25, 25-23, 25-20, 21-25, 15-12, on Sunday to score back-to-back wins in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Kat Tolentino stepped up big time in the deciding set, scoring six points in the frame to help the Lady Eagles improve to 4-1 win-loss record at second spot behind unbeaten BanKo (5-0). Tolentino scattered 28 points off 20 spikes, five kill blocks and three service aces while Jules Samonte added 11 markers off the bench for Ateneo-Motolite. Maddie Madayag and Ponggay Gaston chipped in nine points each for the Lady Eagles' second win in back-to-back weekend schedule after taking down Iriga-Navy in straight sets Saturday.   The incoming third year hitter scored five of Ateneo-Motolite's first nine points as the Lady Eagles built a 9-3 advantage. Behind Bernadette Flora and Ceasa Pinar's heroics, Adamson-Akari closed the gap, 9-8.  Ateneo-Motolite again went ahead, 13-11, before Krich Macaslang scored a hit to push the Lady Falcons within one, 13-12. Tolentino put the Lady Eagles at match point before Vanessa Gandler sealed the win with a cross court hit.    “Every game this is our problem because siguro new system, we always start slow for the past few games we really start slow and we try to fix that problem,” said Ateneo-Motolite head coach Oliver Almadro, who commended the Lady Falcons’ floor defense. “I thank the Lord that we won today, we won yesterday,” he added. “But I’m not happy with what we’ve shown today. It’s because, I guess, we’re getting used to playing pa sa back-to-back (schedule) so siguro being a student and an athlete hindi pa sanay doon sa big games na magkasunod. But we have to be used to it and this is a learning experience for us and we really just have to maximize our strength and really believing kung ano ang ginagawa namin.” The Lady Falcons, who showed superb floor defense but were plagued with terrible errors, dropped their sixth game in as many outings tied with the Lady Oragons. Adamson was in control of the second set, 10-5, but committed 11 of the frame's 13 errors the rest of the way as the Lady Falcons giave Ateneo-Motolite a chance to steal the set and tie the match.  The Lady Eagles again came back from a 14-15 deficit with a 10-4 run capped by an attack error by Flora for a 24-19 lead. Ateneo-Motolite committed a net touch in the next play before Adamson-Akari surrendered the set on another miscue by Flora.         Flora finished with 25 points on 20 kills, three kill blocks and a pair of aces while adding 24 digs and eight excellent receptions. Chiara Permentilla and Gracelchen Ave scored 15 and 12 markers, respectively, for Adamson.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles      .....»»

PBA: Amer says Bolts going for broke in final three games

Baser Amer went from zero to hero in a matter of days for the Meralco Bolts. Amer scored a grand total of zero points Friday in a Meralco loss to Northport. Sunday against NLEX, Baser was struggling again, good for only five points through three quarters. But then the final period came and it was Hammer Time for Baser, dropping 17 big points including a clutch, game-tying and-one play and the final go-ahead triple as the Bolts stunned the Road Warriors with a comeback win. Amer finished with 22 points for the game, 17 in the fourth alone. "Struggle yung shooting ko from last game pero nandun yung tiwala ng teammates at coaches ko," Amer said. "Of course malaking bagay to samin kasi anim na talo na eh, ang bigat na sa katawan," he added. Now at 2-6 after arresting a six-game slide, the Bolts are barely avoiding elimination in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup. With three games to go, Meralco is going for broke as they try to sneak into the playoffs. "Last [three] games na lang kami eh, so para sakin di na namin titignan yung standing," Amer said. "Yung last [three] games, look to win kami tapos bahala na kung ano mangyari," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

UAAP 81: Ateneo beating fueled La Salle s prep for AdU

After taking a sound beating at the hands of rival Ateneo, De La Salle University spent the whole week contemplating on what they did wrong. The Green Archers spent a whole week trying to pinpoint what went south against the Blue Eagles and they wanted to make sure those lapses were corrected for their game against the Adamson Falcons. Because while the opportunity to learn is always present, there are Final Four spots to win and already in the middle of the UAAP Season 81 men's basketball tournament, there's little room to just only learn. One has to win and the Green Archers did just that Saturday at the MOA Arena to end round one of the elimination round. La Salle forced overtime and took down no. 1 Adamson in extra session, improving to 4-3 and grabbing solo fourth in the standings halfway through the season. "Buong linggo after that loss to Ateneo, what we did was talagang back to basics kami," head coach Louie Gonzalez said. "Learning from the Ateneo game, dapat ma-correct kaagad namin. This is end of the first round, we should be competing already, the learning is there pero nasa gitna na kami, dapat lumalaban na kami talaga," he added. Despite beating Adamson, 79-78, Gonzalez admits that the Green Archers still had their low moments in the game. But he just credited those mistakes to the Falcons' style of play where they will still force errors regardless of your preparation. "Good thing dito sa game na ito nandun hanggang sa huli. Alam ko may glitches pero ayun yung ano pag Adamson kalaban mo eh," Gonzalez said. "They [Falcons] will push you to the limit, they will get to your head. Blink of an eye, kung mawala yung mental toughness mo, babalik at babalik sila sa game. Buti na lang nanalo," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Phoenix coach Alas questions Murphy penalty after fight

Coach Louie Alas minced no words on the skirmish involving his player Calvin Abueva and San Miguel import Kevin Murphy at the Mall of Asia Arena Friday evening. Alas' team, the Phoenix Fuel Masters, were down by 17, 105-88, with more than four minutes left in the game, when Abueva and Murphy got entangled on the baseline before chaos ensued.

Meanwhile, Alas, Doug Kramer, Phoenix team manager Paolo Bugia were penalized with technical fouls for entering the playing court.  The veteran coach was simply not happy with the call, and insisted that the opposing import should have been booted for a Flagrant 2. "Talagang sakin F2 yun, pare. That's a choke. I dont know kung ano yung pinanood nila. Lahat nga nagtetext sakin, thats a choke, lahat, sinakal talaga. Pero ganun talaga e. Siguro kung samin nangyari yun baka itatawag nila -- kung di import gumawa itatawag nila. Pero that's not right," an irritated Alas said after the game. Alas also shared that he had a war of words with San Miguel governor Robert Non as the opposing team official allegedly cussed the enigmatic Phoenix forward during another skirmish at halfcourt.  The mentor also took a jab at Beermen assistant Biboy Ravanes for his role in the brawl. "Tapos si Biboy, medyo... siguro wala ng kontrata yun para ano, siya na lang daw. Sabi ko sige, okay lang sakin, anytime." Regarding on how the now 6-3 Fuel Masters prepared the game against the struggling, 3-4 Beermen, the tactician shared that maturity was a major factor in their loss against the more seasoned opponents, noting that his wards weren't relaxed in the game-deciding run to end the third. "Akala ko nga third quarter okay na eh dahil maganda yung adjustment na ginawa namin. In just a span of three minutes, lumamang kami ng two points diba."  "But still, wala kaming -- and I'm still looking for it -- yung talagang may magcocontrol pag may emosyon yung laban, na "okay ibigay niyo sakin yung bola, relax, and just play."  __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

NCAA 94: Already in playoff mode, Red Lions welcome all challengers

The actual NCAA Season 94 playoffs is still about a couple of weeks away, but defending champion San Beda has been in "playoff" mode for a while now. And despite officially clinching a twice-to-beat advantage after pounding hapless Arellano Thursday, the Red Lions will remain in playoff mode until the end of their current title defense. Because as champions, they have the biggest targets on their backs. And even though the actual playoffs in NCAA Season 94 is still about a couple of weeks away, San Beda's schedule to complete the regular season already looks like the postseason. San Beda still has Lyceum and Perpetual on deck before the Final Four officially starts. "It's really playoff mode for us," head coach Boyet Fernandez said. "Kasi we don't know eh. Kung ano sa future, as of now, gusto ko lang manalo kami sa Arellano and then look forward for Thursday [vs. Lyceum] and Tuesday [vs. Perpetual," he added. Being in playoff mode also means that the Red Lions are ready for all challengers. With a tough stretch coming up, including the Final Four, San Beda is pretty much saying bring it on. "We will be ready for every game," Fernandez said. "Rest assured that even though we're at the top-2, we're still going to play 100 percent and looking forward to a win every game," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
