Adamson not a ‘deadbeat’ team, says coach Air Padda

MANILA, Philippines---Adamson University saw its hopes go up sky high only for University of Santo Tomas bring it back down to the ground in the two teams' first meeting on opening weekend of the UAAP Season 81 women's volleyball tournament. The Lady Falcons came back from a two-set deficit only to falter in the fifth set as the Golden Tigresses took a 25-21, 25-21, 24-26, 24-26, 15-6 win Sunday at Mall of Asia Arena. It was a painful loss but Adamson head coach Air Padda said her team is by all means not a pushover in the league. "We're not a deadbeat team, if anyone says we are, we're not a deadbeat team," said Padda.

UAAP Season 81: Eh dun na kami kilala -- Cheng on DLSU swag

Graduating De La Salle University hitter Des Cheng roared as she walked backwards while staring at Ateneo de Manila University’s Kat Tolentino following a monster block in the second set. It was Cheng’s classic swagger that volleyball fans just love to love or hate depending on which side they're on.      But the open spiker cleared that it just came out naturally, especially in this kind of exciting and intense match between two proud schools.    “’Di ko alam kasi siyempre, hello! It’s Ateneo-La Salle. So parang kahit anong sabihin mo may rivalry talaga kahit sabihin mong wala,” said Cheng, who scored 13 points in the defending three-time champion Lady Spikers’ 25-14, 25-17, 16-25, 25-19, victory over the Lady Eagles Sunday in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament at the MOA Arena. Cheng was very animated during the match smiling, laughing, doing the finger wag and whatever gesture she could think of to celebrate a point.   OH MY, DES CHENG 😱 #UAAPSeason81Volleyball pic.twitter.com/ePvIxjxREe — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) February 17, 2019 “Uy, ang hirap kaya kumuha ng puntos kung mapapansin mo. Kaya sabi ko before mag-start ang game sabi ko, ‘Every point ise-celebrate natin. Hindi ‘yung every point makakapuntos ka tapos tatahimik ka tapos parang, ‘Yeheey!’ ganun lang,’” said Cheng, who added 14 receives and nine digs for an all-around performance. The veteran expected that non-DLSU supporters would think that the Lady Spikers went over the top with their on-court reactions but this is what they’re known for and they are not gonna change that. Des Cheng breaks out the finger wag ☝ #UAAPSeason81Volleyball pic.twitter.com/bbVBMIYoGK — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) February 17, 2019 “Eh dun na kami kilala bakit kailangang (i-hold back),” said Cheng. “’Dun kami kilala eh. Sabihin nyo na mayabang kami, swag kami, whatever kung ano ang pagka-interpret nyo it’s OK. Eh kasi yun na ang pagkakakilala nyo sa amin eh di dun nyo na kami i-ano talaga. Pero hindi kami mayabang. Ayun lang po talaga.” Even head coach Ramil De Jesus got into the celebration during that second set highlight, exchanging high-fives with Cheng.       The mentor, according to Cheng, actually asked her to be the spark plug and energizer of the team. “Kasi kailangan. Sabi ni coach, ‘Hindi gagalaw ang team mo kapag walang mag-spark.’ Meaning, kailangan may gagalaw para magi-spark sa kanila tapos susunod lang sila. Kaya kapag nakapuntos ako parang kahit hindi nga ako nakapuntos naga-ano ako na ‘Yeheey, yeheey!’ ganun-ganun,” she said. “Kasi kailangan nila yun kasi kapag walang isang tao na ganoon sino ang magli-lead sa kanila.” And to end her night, Cheng finished off Ateneo with an ace... and a finger wag as exclamation point.   Des Cheng.

UAAP Season 81: Siguro nasa 60% ang galaw kanina -- De Jesus on rookie Dela Cruz

Rookie Jolina Dela Cruz announced her arrival as part of the defending three-time champion De La Salle University with an impressive debut against the Lady Spikers’ archrival Ateneo de Manila University. The 19-year old, Bulacan-native poured in 11 points in DLSU’s 25-14, 25-17, 16-25, 25-19, win over the Lady Eagles in an early battle of titans in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament Sunday at the MOA Arena. It was a good outing for a player whose baptism of fire came in the most anticipated match of the season – the first opening day Ateneo-DLSU clash in the Final Four era.     But head coach Ramil De Jesus said that Dela Cruz has yet to show her full potential.   “Well, as rookie siguro nasa 60% ang galaw kanina. Expected ko na ‘yun kasi bago sa kanya ang lahat ng nangyayari. And siguro ‘yung dami ng crowd, tapos ang ingay ng crowd,” said De Jesus of the Palarong Pambansa standout.   “Sabi ko nga kanina after ng second set, ‘Jolina, sobrang confused mo na kasi ang likot na ng mata mo.’ So ni-remind ko lang na kailangan ko lang ng makakatulong sa loob. Kailangan ko ng tulong mo,” the 11-time champion mentor added. “Ganoon talaga sa first game siguro sa susunod hindi na ganoon.”             The Academia de San Lorenzo recruit and member of the Philippine youth team in the 2017 ASEAN Schools Game in Singapore admitted that her first Ateneo-DLSU experience was quite overwhelming.   “As a rookie bago lang po ako sa ganito and ‘yun po nire-remind ako lagi ng mga ates na kahit anong mangyari nandyan sila sa likod may backup ako,” she said. Dela Cruz added that there were times that she just got carried away with the crowd and energy inside the arena.   “Opo, masyado po akong nadala. Nire-remind naman po nila ako parati na, ‘Jolina balik ka, balik ka. Kaya mo yan. Nandyan ang mga ates mo. Di ka naman nila iiawanan. Iko-cover ka nila kahit anong mangyari.’ Yung mga coaches naman lagi akong nire-remind na focus ka, focus, na balik ka lagi. Once na magkamali ka may ibang way pa na pwede kang gawin,” said Dela Cruz.   Asked on how she would address the missing 40% that De Jesus wanted to see for her, Dela Cruz answered,  “Siguro kailangan pa magtiwala sa sarili ang kailangan balik ka kaagad once nagkamali ka.”   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

UAAP Season 81: DLSU uses element of surprise in dismantling Ateneo

Defending three-time champion De La Salle University kept its team under wraps during the offseason and it worked wonders for the Lady Spikers. Head coach Ramil De Jesus thought that they had the element of surprise when DLSU demolished Ateneo de Manila University, 25-14, 25-17, 16-25, 25-19, Sunday in their UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament opener at the MOA Arena.         The Taft-based squad didn’t join any major pre-season tournament as a team, opting to field just a few of its regular players in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference and in the UniGames. “Mayroon siguro. Malaking advantage ‘yun na wala silang idea sa team namin kung sino ang starter, ano ang position, kung anong klase ng set play ang nangyayari sa team na pina-practice namin,”said De Jesus, whose squad defeated Ateneo for the fifth straight time since Season 79 Finals. DLSU lost three key players in Kim Kianna Dy, former MVP Majoy Baron and libero Dawn Macandili after graduating last season. During the pre-season, Gyra Barroga and Arriane Layug left the team to move up to the semi-pro league. Pundits thought that the Lady Spikers will have a hard time rebuilding but again, De Jesus' battle-tested system that produced 11 titles in two decades proved them wrong.      Graduating player Des Cheng delivered the same numbers that was expected from her but it was rookie Jolina Dela Cruz and fourth year player May Luna that did most of the damage with their production. Dela Cruz and Luna scored 11 points each to back Cheng’s 13 markers and Aduke Ogunsanya’s 10. Luna did the most damage in the fourth set as she helped the Lady Spikers pull away for good midway in the frame with her heady plays that frustrated the Lady Eagles.      As for their archrivals, the Lady Spikers were able to scout the Lady Eagles’ set plays and asses the tendencies of their players based on Ateneo’s performance in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference.     De Jesus and his coaching staff devised a good game plan to dismantle Ateneo in front of 17,166-strong crowd.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Blue Eagles roll past Green Spikers; Falcons outlast Tigers

MANILA, Philippines---Ateneo had a Sunday cruise after dismantling De La Salle in three sets, 25-23, 25-22, 25-15, in the UAAP Season 81 men's volleyball tournament Sunday at Mall of Asia Arena. Tony Koyfmann had 15 points to lead the Blue Eagles while Chumason Njigha and Ishmael Rivera added 10 points apiece for Season 80's runners-up. Ateneo head coach Timothy Sto. Tomas said he was surprised his team was able to pull off the sweep against the Green Spikers since the Blue Eagles are essentially on a rebuild after the departure of setter Ish Polvorosa and Marck Espejo due to graduation. "This is definitely a morale-booster for us because people are saying that we don't have Marck or ...Keep on reading: Blue Eagles roll past Green Spikers; Falcons outlast Tigers.....»»

Keith Richards: Quitting nicotine harder than heroin

For decades, Keith Richards reveled in the so called "rock-star life." But now, at 75, the Rolling Stones guitarist and cofounder has been trying to adapt a healthier lifestyle. He had kicked off his drug habit. Last year, he declared he was giving up excessive drinking. "I have knocked the hard stuff on the head. I have a little wine with meals, and a Guinness or a beer or two," he said in a recent interview with Mojo. Quite surprisingly however, it's quitting cigarettes that's proving to be the toughest of them all. "I have tried---so far, unsuccessfully," Keith said in the interview. "Lou Reed claimed that nicotine was harder to quit than heroin. It is." The ubiquit...Keep on reading: Keith Richards: Quitting nicotine harder than heroin.....»»

UAAP 81 Football: UST demolishes DLSU on opening day

Season 80 runners up University of Santo Tomas wasted no time in getting on the board, as the Growling Tigers demolished De La Salle University, 3-1 on opening day of the UAAP Season 81 Men's Football Tournament, Sunday afternoon at the FEU-FERN Football Field in Diliman, Quezon City.  Armed with 13 rookies, the Green Archers were looking to make a statement early in the season, and early in the match, it looked like they were primed for a big win after one of those new faces, John Rey Lagura, connected on his first UAAP goal to put DLSU ahead, 1-0 in the 14th minute.  The Green Archer advantage didn't last too long, as Conrad Dimacali responded in the 17th minute to help the Growling Tigers pull even  UST moved into the driver's seat heading into the midgame break, thanks to a 36th minute conversion from Juan Villanueva to make it 2-1.  Action picked up in the second half, as De La Salle looked to rally back, but instead it was UST who found the back of the net once again, with rookie Glen Ramos also hitting his first UAAP goal to put the Growling Tigers ahead, 3-1.  DLSU attempted once last push, but yielded no results, as UST coasted to a big opening day victory.  "Every tournament, especially sa UAAP, mas maganda talaga na makakuha ka kaagad ng three points, pero nag-start kami kanina na masiyadong mababa yung laro namin, medyo yung fitness namin, hindi kami makahawak ng bola," explained UST head coach Marjo Allado after the match. "La Salle is very dangerous in transitions, and buti na lang, yung dalawang free kicks namin, na-convert namin kanina."  "So far, it's a good result for the UST Men's Team sa opening game," Allado added.  While it was a big win, Allado isn't completely happy with the result, noting that he felt his boys were a bit off.  "Naka-score kami ng three goals, pero my concern is yung laro namin kanina, this is not how we play eh. Siguro first game, parang naninibago lang yung mga players, especially yung ibang rookies."  UST opens the season with a win and three points. .....»»

UAAP 81 Football: Four Tamaraws score as FEU drops UE, 4-1

Far Eastern University picked up a massive opening day win as they trounced University of the East, 4-1, Sunday afternoon at the FEU-FERN Football Field in Diliman, Quezon City. Coming off their worst campaign in years, finishing seventh in UAAP Season 80, FEU looked every bit like the program that once won back-to-back titles as they dominated a contender in UE. Early on however, it looked like the Red Warriors were primed to get on the board first after a foul inside the box from FEU resulted in a penalty attempt from for UE. Red Warriors striker Mar Diano flubbed the penalty attempt however, as his shot hit the cross bar and bounced out. Immediately on the other end, it was FEU who drew first blood, with rookie Jermi Darapan scoring in the 29th minute. Three minutes into the second half, former Baby Tamaraws star Chester Gio Pabualan announced his arrival into the men’s tournament with a header to give the Tamaraws a 2-0 advantage. Opening day was a good one for tournament rookies, as the Red Warriors managed to pull one back in the 51st minute courtesy of first year-wingback Champ Marin, who became the fourth rookie to score a goal in the first matchday. The Tamaraws regained momentum as they widened their advantage to 3-1, courtesy of a free kick conversion from Nicky Canonigo in the 60th minute. FEU continued to pull away in the 66th minute, with Alex Rayos blasting one from way outside the box to make it a three-goal advantage for the Tamaraws. "Winning the first game of the season is the most important," said head coach Bobae Park. "Our players, I know they're also a little bit nervous, but they just tried their best, and their spirit is together."  With the win, FEU joins UST at the top of the early leaderboard with a win and three points each. .....»»
