NCAA: Mapua gets revenge on LSGH, grabs second title in three years

Mapua High School now has the most number of championships in NCAA Juniors Basketball – and its record-setting title could not have come in more dramatic fashion. Dan Arches finished what Paolo Hernandez started as the Red Robins stood strong in the face of a furious fightback from now-dethroned champion College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills, 77-74, on Thursday at the MOA Arena. Mapua was well on its way to a win, up 69-53 late in the third quarter before being at the wrong end of a 19-5 Junior Blazer rally that tied the tally at 74-all inside the last two minutes. “Credit sa lahat ng players na walang ginawa kundi sumunod sa game plan namin,” a beaming head coach Randy Alcantara said post-game. It was at that point, however, that Arches scored from a split from the stripe and then an inside basket to put his team back on top, 77-74. CSB-LSGH had 66 ticks to go to make something happen, but was unable to find the hole the rest of the way. Up until the last moment, however, the game wasn’t over as the Junior Blazers had the ball with 0.5 on the clock. The inbound went to Joshua David at the top of the key and he had an open look that had the ball finding the bottom of the net. Only, he wasn’t able to release the ball before time expired – therefore, preserving the three-point win for the Red Robins. With that, Mapua claimed its second championship in the last three years and 22nd overall – tying it with San Beda High School as the winningest program in the Juniors. At the same time, they have gotten back at the same Junior Blazers who dethroned them a season ago. Hernandez was the firestarter for it all with a career-best 33 points on top of 12 rebounds, three steals, two assists, and two steals. Arches then brought the finishing kick with 22 markers, including all six of his team’s points in the final frame, to go along with five boards. “Thank you nagkaroon ako ng ganitong klaseng mga players. Sila talaga ‘to e,” coach Randy said. For CSB-LSGH, Inand Fornilos topped the scoring column with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Joel Cagulangan, though, was silent for his standards with just 10 markers, six boards, and four assists after incurring an apparent right ankle injury early in the game. BOX SCORES MAPUA 77 – Hernandez 33, Arches 22, Sarias 5, Smith 5. Quimado 4, Policarpio 4, Mariano 2, Dennison 2, Lazarte 0, Diaz 0.

Ateneo overwhelms UST for fine finish in UAAP 81 eliminations

Ateneo de Manila University has won seven straight heading into the Final Four of the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament. The Blue Eagles’ latest win was a breeze as they dominated University of Sto. Tomas from start to finish, 102-62, on Wednesday at the MOA Arena. The defending champions began the game as if it was shot out of a cannon, scoring 16 unanswered points in the first six minutes. “We’re happy with the win because one of the first things we told the team is that coach Tab wasn’t there, but his system is already in place,” assistant coach Sandy Arrespacochaga said post-game. Ivorian rookie recruit Angelo Kouame dropped nine of his 22 points in that strong start as he and his team didn’t miss a beat even without head coach Tab Baldwin who was out due to an illness. That strong start ultimately became a 34-13 opening salvo that built up an insurmountable advantage in favor of Ateneo. Fellow first-year player William Navarro joined in on the fun in the second half, scoring eight of his 17 points after halftime while also totaling five rebounds and two assists. BJ Andrade and Jolo Mendoza also added nine points apiece as the Blue Eagles sweep the second round and end the elimination round holding a 12-2 record. “We didn’t want to take a step back or relax. That’s just our sentiments today,” coach Sandy said. Ateneo, though, is still uncertain about whom it will be facing in the Final Four as all of De La Salle University, Far Eastern University, and the University of the Philippines still have fighting chances at the third and fourth-seeds. For the Growling Tigers, Renzo Subido topped the scoring column with 18 points in their first game without super rookie CJ Cansino. They wind up their campaign at 5-9. BOX SCORES ATENEO 102 – Kouame 22, Navarro 17, Mendoza 9, Andrade 9, Go 8, Ravena 6, Asistio 6, Nieto Ma 5, Nieto Mi 5, Black 4, Verano 4, Daves 4, Belangel 3, Wong 0, Tio 0, Mamuyac 0 UST 62 – Subido 18, Agustin 15, Marcos 13, Mahinay 6, Huang 4, Lee 2, Ando 2, Cosejo 2, Bataller 0, Zamora 0, Bonleon 0, Caunan 0 QUARTER SCORES: 34-13, 58-31, 83-42, 102-62 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PBA: Aces survive Bolts late game scare to tie series, 1-1

Alaska weathered Meralco’s comeback scare to escape with a 100-95 Game 2 win to knot the the best-of-five 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup semifinals series Tuesday night at the MOA Arena. The Aces leaned on the steady hands of JVee Casio inside the last 18.5 seconds of the match to put the game away while Simon Enciso, who waxed-hot in the first half, sealed the win from the line and snap the Bolts' seven-game winning streak.    Game 3 is on Thursday at the Cuneta Astrodome. Mike Harris was a workhorse for the Aces as the reinforcement poured in 37 points on 13-of-21 field goal shooting while hauling down 19 rebounds. Enciso scored 23 points while Chris Banchero flirted with a triple double with 13 markers, 11 rebounds and eight assists for Alaska, which missed only one free throw of its 21 attempts. "A heck of a win. I'm just happy to win. Now we got a best-of-three," said Aces head coach Alex Compton, whose squad rebounded from a 97-92 Game 1 setback.      Allen Durham brought down a once 20-point Bolts deficit to only seven points, 86-79, with just 3:44 left on a lay-in. Mike Harris brought it back to nine, 90-81, with a floater before Chris Newsome completed a three-point play followed by a dagger three-pointer by Baser Amer to breathe down the Aces’ necks, 90-87, with 1:52 left. Newsome was called for a goaltending on the next play, Amer split his free throws before Durham slammed it home to close the gap, 92-90, with 50 ticks left. Harris sank a jumper to put Alaska up by four but Durham quickly answered with a basket off a timeout for a 94-92 count with 28 seconds remaining.         Meralco was forced to give up a foul and sent Alaska’s steady free throw shooter Casio on the line. But Newsome uncorked a corner pocket triple to cut the Bolts’ deficit to 96-95. Casio added two free throws to put the Aces lead back to three with seven seconds left. Amer heaved a long three before Enciso put the icing on the cake from the line.    Picking up from where they left off in the first 24 minutes of action, the Aces went on a tear to open the third period as they opened a 66-46 gap with 4:31 left off a Vic Manuel split from the stripe. Enciso led Alaska’s locals in the first half, scoring 13 points including a step-back jumper over the outstretched hands of Anjo Caram that gave the Aces a 47-40 cushion at the half. Enciso shot five-of-7 from the field including three from beyond the rainbow arc for the Aces, which in the first half shot 20-of-41 from the field compared and forced Meralco to commit 11 turnovers that Alaska converted to 19 markers. Alaska sparked a 13-4 blitz in the last five minutes of the second quarter after trailing, 34-36, with 5:56 left.   The scores:  Alaska (100) -- Harris 37, Enciso 23, Banchero 13, Manuel 7, Baclao 6, Racal 5, Casio 4, Exciminiano 3, Teng 2, Thoss 0. Meralco (95) -- Durham 24, Salva 20, Amer 14, Hugnatan 12, Tolomia 10, Newsome 6, Caram 4, Canaleta 3, Faundo 2, Dillinger 0, Ballesteros 0. Quarters: 23-21, 47-40, 74-60, 100-95.    --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Norwegian frigate sinks after it was rammed by tanker

COPENHAGEN, Denmark --- One of Norway's Navy frigates has almost completely gone under water after an oil tanker rammed into it last week and tore a large hole in its side, authorities said Tuesday. Rear Adm. Nils Andreas Stensoenes, the head of Norway's navy, said several of the wires used to stabilize the KNM Helge Instad snapped Tuesday, causing the vessel to sink further into the fjord. Only the top of the frigate with its radar and antennas remained above the waterline. The 134-meter frigate began listing heavily after a Maltese-flagged oil tanker collided with it Thursday in a harbor in Sture, north of Bergen. Its 137 crew were evacuated and eight people onboard were i...Keep on reading: Norwegian frigate sinks after it was rammed by tanker.....»»

PBA: Hotshots take commanding 2-0 lead in Manila Clasico

Two-time champion Brgy. Ginebra is officially down for the count. No. 4 Magnolia landed another haymaker Monday, taking a commanding 2-0 lead in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup semifinals following a 101-97 win over the Gin Kings in Game 2 at the Big Dome. Surviving a late flurry from the Gin Kings, the Hotshots are now one win away from the Finals and ending Ginebra's two-year reign in the Governors' Cup. Similar to Game 1, the Hotshots were in control for most of the game, frustrating the Gin Kings and making them play their game. Magnolia took multiple double-digit leads and had an answer for Ginebra anytime the champs tried to mount a rally. The Gin Kings only really had it going in the fourth after head coach Tim Cone was ejected for a pair of technical fouls. Ginebra cut the deficit down to just three points with 24 seconds to go but LA Tenorio and Justin Brownlee each missed game-tying triples. Romeo Travis then scored one free throw on the other end to seal the final tally.   The Scores: Magnolia 101 - Travis 25, Sangalang 17, Lee 14, Dela Rosa 11, Barroca 9, Jalalon 8, Reavis 6, Melton 5, Simon 5, Herndon 1. Ginebra 97 - Brownlee 31, Tenorio 15, Aguilar 15, Slaughter 14, Thompson 7, Mercado 7, Mariano 4, Chan 2, Caguioa 2, Ferrer 0.

Dagger Dan Arches wills Mapua to winner-take-all vs LSGH in NCAA 94

Mapua High School and College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills will figure in another winner-take-all matchup now in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament. Dan Arches made sure of that, putting the Red Robins on his back over the defending champion Junior Blazers, 85-76, on Monday at the MOA Arena. The graduating guard scored 19 points, including six straight in the run that effectively turned the tides in favor of his team. “Si Dan naman, siya na talaga magli-lead ngayong wala si Clint,” head coach Randy Alcantara, referring to main man Clint Escamis who did not play still due to his ailing left knee. Mapua trailed, 36-39, late in the second quarter after Lennox Valenzuela drew unsportsmanlike and technical fouls from them. It was at that point, though, that Arches settled down the troops before burning Valenzuela with three baskets in a row to put his squad on top, 42-39, at halftime. That was just the wakeup call that that the Red Robins needed to impose their will in what was a must-win matchup for them following a loss in Game 1. “Sinabi ko lang talaga sa kanila na natalo tayo ng Game 1, pero hindi pa sila champion. Kailangan lang nating makuha ‘tong Game 2 kahit gaano kahirap,” coach Randy said. Briedyn Smith, Jonnel Policarpio, and Paolo Hernanez only joined in on the fun in the third and got together for an 11-3 run that increased their advantage to 70-61 in the middle of the quarter. In the end, Arches had 22 points and five rebounds while Policarpio and Hernandez both had double-doubles with the former having 14 markers and 14 boards and the latter having 13 points and 10 rebounds. Thanks to them, Mapua is now one win away from a second championship in the last three years. Arches and company try to do that in the winner-take-all Game 3 on Thursday. Of course, CSB-LSGH would also be going all-out for what would be their own back-to-back titles. Joel Cagulangan topped the scoring column for them in this one with 17 points, but hard to work for all of those, just shooting 4-of-17. Inand Fornilos also had a 13-point, 12-rebound double-double. They would need much more from Joshua David, however, who had a substandard game with just five points in 1-of-15 shooting. BOX SCORES MAPUA 85 – Arches 22, Policarpio 14, Hernandez 13, Mariano 11, Smith 8, Sarias 6, Lazarte 3, Fransman 3, Quimado 2, Dennison 2, Diaz 1. CSB-LSGH 76 – Cagulangan 17, Fornilos 13, Sangco 13, Valenzuela 13, David 5, Lepalam 4, Palencia 4, Calimag 4, Mosqueda 3, Morales 0, Lao 0.

Topless protesters trick security, disrupt Trump motorcade

PARIS, France --- A feminist activist pretending to be a photographer managed to breach security at a huge international ceremony in Paris and disrupt U.S. Presidential Donald Trump's motorcade as part of a peace protest. With thousands of security forces deployed around the French capital, questions swirled around how the woman and two other activists from feminist group Femen got so close to scores of world leaders gathered on the Champs-Elysees to mark 100 years since the end of World War I.

James scores 25 as Lakers use defense to top Kings

SACRAMENTO, Calif. --- Smoke from the raging Northern California wildfires seeped into the Golden 1 Center, giving LeBron James a headache and leading Los Angeles Lakers coach Luke Walton to shorten his players' stints on the court. But the haze did little to slow James and the Lakers, who used their best defensive effort of the year to earn a 101-86 win Saturday night against the Sacramento Kings, lifting Los Angeles to .500 (6-6) for the first time this season.

The Nazareth School of National University (NS-NU) Bullpups opened their UAAP Season 81 Juniors' Basketball tournament campaign on a high note after holding off the FEU-Diliman Baby Tamaraws, 78-70, at the Blue Eagle Gym Sunday morning. With the game tied at 57 following a JB Sajonia jumper from 15 feet, NS-NU held off a furious run by the Baby Tams, as Bullpup Terrence Fortea scored six straight points to keep their opponents at bay.  FEU-Diliman's RJ Abarrientos cut the lead to as close as four, 61-65, but NS-NU answered emphatically with the game-deciding 16-3 run, capped off by Harold Alarcon's fastbreak layup. "Medyo nag-start out ng maganda yung defense namin. Na-contain namin yung FEU noong first half. Noong bandang gitna ng third quarter, medyo bumaba na naman. Siguro we have to be more consistent," NS-NU Bullpups head coach Goldwin Monteverde told ABS-CBN Sports. NU tried to pull away initially in the first half, venturing on an 11-1 run bridging the first two quarters to lead 28-16, but the Baby Tamaraws found a way to slowly chip away the lead. Batang Gilas duo Carl Tamayo and Gerry Abadiano had a great debut for the Season 80 runners-up, combining for 28 points. The sharpshooter Fortea meanwhile added 11 markers of his own. Abarrientos top scored for the Baby Tamaraws with 15, while Ron Tolentino added 14. Meanwhile, in the first game, the De La Salle-Santiago Zobel Junior Archers drew their first win of the season in a comeback win against the UE Junior Red Warriors, 66-56. Game tied at 49 in the early goings of the fourth quarter, DLS-Zobel wrestled away the game from UE through a 15-4 run to lead 64-53. Henrie Subido, brother of UST Growling Tiger Renzo led the way with 19 points. Lance Jomalesa, a key cog in the game-sealing run added 17 markers of his own. For UE, Shane Dichoso paced their offese with 20 points and six rebounds, but coughed the ball nine times.

UAAP: FEU takes care of business against NU to tie UP at fourth

Far Eastern University made certain it still has complete command of its own fate now in the stretch run of the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament. Arvin Tolentino waxed hot from start to finish as the Tamaraws wielded all of its weapons in a 79-74 triumph over hapless National University on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum. Tolentino was on-point from the get-go and fired all of his 16 points in the first half. “So far, these boys are playing really well the past two games. Hopefully, we can sustain this,” head coach Olsen Racela said post-game. Right beside him was team captain Kenneth Tuffin and promising rookie L-Jay Gonzales who totaled 15 and nine points, respectively, to help FEU hike its record to 7-6. It was still a close contest after the opening salvo until the floodgates opened for the Tamaraws with Tolentino and Tuffin spearheading their 25-10 surge in the second quarter. The Bulldogs would only come as close as six points for the remainder of the game. FEU now stands on even ground with the University of the Philippines at the fourth spot. “Yun na yun. We’re still in the hunt,” their mentor said. Another win for the Tamaraws against Adamson University coupled with a Fighting Maroons loss to De La Salle University will send the former to the Final Four. “We are going all-out for that win. Whatever happens sa ibang games ng teams, we’re going for that win,” coach Olsen said. For NU, John Lloyd Clemente dropped 38 points, the most points from a player in this season, while Dave Ildefonso also added a 12-marker, 10-rebound double-double. That still wasn’t enough, though, as they dropped to 3-10 in the standings. They hope to salvage a winning end to their campaign up against fellow cellar-dwelling team University of the East.

By Rob Gloster, Associated Press SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — LeBron James scored 25 points and recently signed Tyson Chandler had 12 rebounds as the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Sacramento Kings 101-86 Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time). The Lakers, who began the season with three straight losses, moved to .500 (6-6) for the first time this season by holding the Kings, who entered the game averaging 118 points per contest, to their lowest scoring total of the season. It was only the second time Sacramento has been held below 100 points this season, and it marked the first time Los Angeles had held an opponent below 100. James hit three three-pointers and had seven rebounds. He only had two assists, though he often fed teammates for open shots that missed — including Lonzo Ball, who was 2-for-10 from the field. Chandler, playing in his second game with the Lakers, logged 23 minutes and scored three points. Los Angeles has won four of its last five. De'Aaron Fox had 17 of his 21 points in the first half to lead the Kings, who shot 35 percent from the field and went 6-for-25 on three-pointers. The Lakers were ahead by six points at the half and held a 76-65 lead entering the fourth quarter. They built that lead to 20 points at 88-68 before the Kings responded with a 10-0 run, but Sacramento got no closer. TIP-INS Lakers: The previous low by a Lakers opponent this season was 110 points. ... Ball missed all six of his three-point attempts, most of them wide open. ... There were plenty of Los Angeles fans in the stands, and several "Let's Go Lakers" chants in the fourth quarter. Kings: Sacramento's 44 points in the first half matched a season low. ... The Kings had scored 100 or more points in each of their seven previous contests. ... Sacramento is now 2-1 in the second game of back-to-back contests this season. UP NEXT Lakers: Return home to host Atlanta on Sunday (Monday, PHL time). Kings: Conclude a four-game home stand on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time) by hosting San Antonio, which has won 14 straight against Sacramento......»»

Joe Ingles scores 27 points, Jazz outlast Celtics 123-115

By JOHN COON,  Associated Press SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Joe Ingles matched his career high with 27 points and added a season-high seven assists to help the Utah Jazz beat the Boston Celtics 123-115 on Friday night (Saturday, PHL time) in Gordon Hayward's return to Utah. Hayward had 13 points and seven assists in his first game back in Utah since leaving the Jazz in free agency after the 2016-17 season. He broke his left ankle last season in the opener. Donovan Mitchell added 21 points for Utah, Jae Crowder had 20, and Rudy Gobert finished with 17 points and 15 rebounds. The Jazz won their second straight home game and second straight overall. Terry Rozier scored 22 points and Jayson Tatum added 21 for the Celtics. Boston lost for the third time in four games. The Jazz started to pull away when they scored 3-pointers on each of their final four possessions of the second quarter to take a 58-51 halftime lead. Ingles accounted for the first three long-distance baskets — highlighting a 20-point first half for him. Utah opened the third quarter on a 17-6 run. Mitchell ignited the run by draining three free throws and driving for a layup on back-to-back possessions. Derrick Favors kept it going with back-to-back baskets that gave the Jazz a double digit lead and finished the run off with a pair of free throws that put Utah ahead 75-57 just four minutes into the quarter. The Jazz eventually built their lead to 20 points, going up 83-63 on a layup from Crowder, before Boston rallied in the fourth quarter. The Celtics scored on four straight possessions — culminating in Tatum's layup — to ignite a 15-4 run. Rozier buried a 3-pointer to cap off the run and cut Utah's lead to 100-96. Boston got within four points four more times, the final time on a 3-pointer from Marcus Smart that made it 111-107. But Gobert made a layup to push the lead to six and Tatum missed a pair of layups that could have trimmed the deficit again. Crowder sealed it on a corner three that gave Utah a 117-109 lead with 47.7 seconds left. TIP INS Celtics: Smart set season high with 10 assists. He finished one assist shy of matching his career high. ... Boston scored 28 points off 17 Utah turnovers. The Celtics gave up a season-high 35 points to the Jazz in the third quarter. Jazz: Ingles made five 3-pointers, moving him ahead of Deron Williams (511) on Utah's 3-pointers list. He has made 512 3-pointers with the Jazz. Utah finished with 45-28 advantage on rebounds against Boston. The Jazz finished with 50 points in the paint. UP NEXT Celtics: At Portland on Sunday. Jazz: At Memphis on Monday.....»»

US to stop refueling planes in Yemen war — report

    The United States will stop refueling aircraft from the Saudi-led coalition that is bombing Yemen, the Washington Post reported Friday. The move comes amid an ongoing international outcry over Saudi actions in Yemen, particularly after a string of high-profile coalition strikes that have killed scores of civilians, many of them children. The Pentagon would not confirm the Post's story. "We continue to have discussions with the Saudis. We have nothing to report at this time," Pentagon spokeswoman Commander Rebecca Rebarich said. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis in August warned that US support for the coalition was "not unconditional," noting it must do "ev...Keep on reading: US to stop refueling planes in Yemen war — report.....»»
