F2 Logistics captures breakthrough Grand Prix title

F2 Logistics captured its breakthrough 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix title but not after surviving a tough battle against Petron, 25-20, 25-19, 20-25, 25-18, in the decider of their best-of-three Finals series at MOA Arena on Saturday.    Conference Most Valuable Player Maria Jose Perez led the Cargo Movers' assault as the Venezuelan import unleashed all of her 24 points off attacks to pulverize the defense of the Blaze Spikers but it was skipper Cha Cruz who hurt Petron the most. Cruz, who was instumental in F2 Logistics impressive comeback in Game 2, scored 16 points from 13 spikes and three aces while spoiling the attacks of the Blaze Spikers with great floor defense, tallying 12 excellent receptions and eight digs. American Kennedy Bryan and reigning UAAP MVP MAjoy Baron finished with 12 points each.       The Cargo Movers pounced on the cold Blaze Spikers early before staving off Petron’s comeback attempt with a strong fourth set blitz to bag their first import-laden crown since joining the league last year. The Ramil de Jesus-mentored squad returned the favor against the same team that kicked then off the throne in the All-Filipino Conference four months ago and completed an amazing comeback from a 0-1 series deficit. "Masaya kasi 'yun na lang 'di ko na-achieve," said a very jubilant De Jesus, a many-time UAAP champion and 2016 PSL All-Filipino Conference titlist. De Jesus stuck to the same rotation that saved them in Game 2, putting Bryan at opposite and switching Cruz's position to open. Petron was slow to adjust. "'Yung rotation  na 'yun di nila na-solusyunan, very effective naman," he said. "Nu'ng thirrd set balik lang sa normal possession, nag-relax lang mga bata pero di ko binago 'yung rotation." The Blaze Spikers avoided a sweep after taking the third set but again saw themselves trailing 11-16 in the fourth frame. Petron never recovered from their deficit as Perez sealed the win with a kill straight to the backrow that went off the hands of American import Hillary Hurley.   F2 Logistics won its second league title after ruling the the 2016 All-Filipino Conference  and became the first team to climb out of an early series deficit and take the throne since the implementation of the best-of-three championship back in 2015. The Cargo Movers forced a decider after a morale-boosting 25-20, 24-26, 14-25, 25-19, 15-4, victory in Game 2 last Thursday. Petron drew first blood, 25-14, 25-21, 25-16, Tuesday but was denied of adding another Grand Prix crown after winning it all back in 2015. Hurley scored 25 points while compatriot Stalzer was limited to only nine markers for Petron.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

Set for UST return, Renzo Subido soak some in D-League experience

For Renzo Subido, his time with Marinerong Pilipino in the 2018 PBA D-League Aspirants' Cup has a purpose. And his main goal? To become a better leader for University of Santo Tomas. "I know that everything I can learn this conference, I can bring to UST," he said. So far, Subido has been nothing but excellent for the Skippers, leading his side to the 94-92 victory over Zark's Burger-Lyceum on Thursday. The 22-year-old led the fight with 20 points, five assists, and three rebounds in the victory. While he's looking to gain experience, Subido's focus is firmly on the big picture rather than his individual performance.

Rorke added, "The performances of the leads are outstanding, but special mention must be made of (Darren) Criss, who beautifully captures (Andrew) Cunanan's ability to tell the biggest lies anyone has ever heard and literally charm the pants off anyone he sets his sights on."

Golden State’s Bell leaves with sprained left ankle

CHICAGO (AP) — Jordan Bell has left Golden State’s game against Chicago with a sprained left ankle. Bell got hurt when he challenged Robin Lopez’s dunk on the Bulls’ first possession. Bell stayed down for a while and then was helped to his feet. He tried to put pressure on his leg and grimaced before he opted for a wheelchair ride off the court. X-rays were negative, and the team announced Bell will have an MRI on Thursday (Friday, PHL time). The NBA champion Warriors already were without Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala for Wednesday night’s (Thursday, PHL time) game. Green is dealing with right shoulder soreness, and Iguodala has a bruised left calf. The 23-year-old Bell was selected by the Bulls in the second round of the June draft and then dealt to the Warriors for financial considerations. He made his first career start against Chicago on Nov. 24 (Nov. 25, PHL time) and blocked six shots in the Warriors’ 143-94 victory......»»

Bazemore hits winning shot, Hawks beat Pelicans 94-93

By Paul Newberry, Associated Press ATLANTA (AP) — Kent Bazemore hit a jumper with 2.1 seconds remaining and the Hawks rallied from 19 points down to beat the New Orleans Pelicans 94-93 Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) before a sparse crowd on an icy night in Atlanta. With the score tied at 92, DeMarcus Cousins drew a blocking foul on John Collins with 13.7 seconds remaining, earning a trip to the foul line. Cousins made only one, giving the Hawks a chance to pull out the victory. .@24Bazemore comes up BIG for the @ATLHawks in #CrunchTime! 🔥 pic.twitter.com/a57TuUTgb9 — NBA TV (@NBATV) January 18, 2018 Bazemore knocked down the winning shot with Anthony Davis in his face. New Orleans had one last chance, inbounding the ball to Cousins near the hoop. He came up short on a quick shot, pleading with the officials for a foul call while the Hawks celebrated. Bazemore led the Hawks with 20 points, while rookie John Collins added 18. Jrue Holiday paced the Pelicans with 22 points, while Cousins had 19 points and 14 rebounds. But Davis was held to just eight points on 2-of-8 shooting. Coming off a victory over San Antonio, the Hawks won back-to-back games for only the second time this season and snapped the Pelicans’ three-game winning streak. The Hawks started quickly, knocking down four of their first six shots — including a couple of three-pointers — but it was all Pelicans the rest of the first half. The Hawks missed seven straight shots during two different stretches in the first quarter and endured another long drought at the beginning of the second period, going nearly five minutes without a field goal. New Orleans ripped off 12 straight points to erase Atlanta’s early edge and pushed ahead twice by as many as 19 before settling for a 60-45 lead at the break. The Hawks wiped out that big deficit by the end of the third quarter. The Pelicans made only 3-of-18 shots in a 10-point period, allowing Atlanta to grab a 71-70 lead heading to the fourth. The game was played after a winter storm moved through Atlanta, leading most schools and businesses to shut down for the day because of treacherous roads. The upper deck wasn’t even used, allowing everyone in the estimated turnout of around 5,000 to watch the contest from the lower level. The announced attendance was 10,894, the smallest crowd of the season at Philips Arena. TIP-INS Pelicans: Davis, coming off a 45-point effort in a win at Boston, and was held to single figures for only the second time this season. ... New Orleans had a season-low 33 points in the second half, missing their first eight shots after the break. Hawks: C Dewayne Dedmon fouled out with 4:48 remaining after playing 20 minutes off the bench. He had 10 rebounds. ... F Luke Babbitt, who was on the inactive list, hasn’t played in five straight games. In fact, he’s gotten in only two of the last 13 games — scoring five points in just over 13 minutes of playing time — after making nine starts early in the season. ... The Hawks came into the night ranked last in the league with an average attendance 14,239 — more than 1,300 less per game than the next-lowest team, the Indiana Pacers.

Pogoy sparks TNT s charge to silence Elite

With TNT in trouble against a very dangerous Blackwater team, RR Pogoy took it upon himself to rescue his KaTropa in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup. The reigning Rookie of the Year led TNT's fightback in the second half against the Elite and the KaTropa scored a huge 92-83 victory Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum. Following a flat first half, Pogoy sparked a third-quarter rally for TNT, allowing the flagship MVP franchise to take over after a 29-14 run. The KaTropa ended up leading by as many as 17 points in the fourth, which was enough to holf off the Elite and get back to .500 with a 2-2 record. "Our rotation messed up in the first half, good thing we recovered in the second half. Going into this game, we knew that we gonna have a hard time against Blackwater," head coach Nash Racela said. "We knew that it's not gonna be easy getting a victory over them. It would take our absolute best and they really able to challenge us, especially in the second half, our shots started to fall," he added. Down by as many as 10, TNT clicked in the third behind Pogoy, who ended up scoring eight points including a highlight dunk on the break. The KaTropa took an eight-point lead into the finals 12 minutes where Jayson Castro helped finish the job, dropping a very confident Elite crew. Pogoy finished with a game-high 24 points to go along with eight rebounds while the Blue added 17 points of his own. RR Garcia started the game and dropped 12 while Anothy Semerad poured 11 points, also in a starting role. For the Elite, JP Erram continued his fine play going for 20 points and eight rebounds but it wasn't enough as Blackwater dropped to 2-2 for the season.   The Scores: TNT 92 - Pogoy 24, Castro 17, Garcia 12, Semerad 11, Rosario 9, Williams 6, Tautuaa 6, Reyes 2, Golla 0, Onwubere 0, Carey 0. Blackwater 83 - Erram 20, Cortez 14, Digregorio 9, Belo 9, Maliksi 9, Jose 7, Sumang 5, Marcelo 4, Sena 4, Pinto 2, Cruz 0.

With no World Cup for US this year, Altidore shifts focus

By Anne M. Peterson, Associated Press For Jozy Altidore, this was supposed to be the time when the United States was preparing for this summer's World Cup. That changed early in October when the Americans got bounced from the tournament. The stunning failure shifted Altidore's focus. He spent the beginning of 2018 in Grand Cayman, where his foundation is bringing soccer to kids in a region hit by hurricanes last fall. Soon, he'll start the new season with defending MLS Cup champion Toronto FC. As for this summer? Altidore will watch a few of the matches in Russia on television. The 28-year-old forward isn't stewing in the loss, he's looking with hope to the future. "Of course I'll obviously be disappointed not to be there, but at the end of the day, man, we're blessed to do what we do," he said. Apart from the national team loss, Altidore is coming off one of the better years of his career. He scored 18 goals with the Reds and another four with the U.S. national team. Toronto FC won the Supporters' Shield for the best regular-season record before sweeping through the playoffs and defeating Seattle 2-0 for the league title. Altidore scored in the final and earned MLS Cup MVP honors. The victory was a bit of revenge for a loss to the Sounders for the MLS Cup the previous season, but Altidore said Toronto's motivation was part of a season-long journey he took with his teammates and coach Greg Vanney. "I think more than anything we understood how close we were and how it hurt that we had come up short that season," he said. "The focus for us was to do what we did that last year and if we got to the last game, obviously make sure we got the W and make the most of our chances." Toronto teammate and fellow national team player, Michael Bradley, echoed the sentiment after the title match. "When push comes to shove, you want to step into the biggest moments with people that you would do anything for, that you love, that you believe in, that you trust, that you know have your back," Bradley said. But it wasn't all smooth. Altidore got into a confrontation with New York Red Bulls captain Sacha Kljestan in a tunnel at BMO Field during the conference semifinals. Altidore and Kljestan were handed red cards in the aftermath. Altidore sat out Toronto's next game, while Kljestan was suspended an additional game and won't be able to play the first two games of the upcoming season. Kljestan, who was also fined, was traded in the offseason from the Red Bulls to Orlando. Altidore and Bradley were also jeered — sometimes with profane and personal attacks — by opposing fans over the U.S. team's qualifying performance. "Look, all that stuff I think would have been magnified had we not achieved our objective," Altidore said. "But we did, and we did it in such a convincing manner." Following the 2-1 U.S. loss in Couva, Trinidad, that cost the national team a spot in the World Cup, coach Bruce Arena stepped down and U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati said he would not run for another term. Interim U.S. coach Dave Sarachan called 30 players into January training camp in advance of an exhibition game against Bosnia and Herzegovina on Jan. 28 in Carson, California. Altidore and many of the team's veterans were not invited. The camp roster includes 15 players who have never played in a match for the senior national team. The most experienced was LA Galaxy midfielder Gyasi Zardes, who is 26. Twenty-one of the players are 24 and younger. Altidore, who has 41 goals in 110 appearances with the national team, understands that developing young talent is important heading into the next World Cup quadrennial. "We have to do a better job of identifying new talent, for sure," he said, suggesting that missing out on the past two Olympics — where under-23 teams compete — has hurt development efforts. For now, Altidore is pouring his energy into charitable endeavors. Altidore, whose parents are from Haiti, launched his foundation in 2011 following the devastating earthquake that hit the country the year before. The foundation built a well to provide water to a town of more than 400 in Haiti, along with other rebuilding efforts. In 2016, he paid to bring the Copa America matches to television in the country. The latest effort in the Cayman Islands focuses on getting youth involved in soccer. "I think the whole region, the Caribbean has a lot of talent and has a lot of kids who want to become players. And I think it helps to see and identify with players who have played in different leagues from around the world," he said. "If I'm able to be one of those guys that can start that whole thing, it's a great opportunity and honor for me."      .....»»

Resilient Vikings have taken their cue from Zimmer

By Dave Campbell, Associated Press EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Mike Zimmer was already smiling more than usual, sporting a relaxed look of satisfaction rarely revealed in public during the NFL season, when he really let his guard down a few minutes into his postgame news conference deep inside Minnesota's still-buzzing stadium. "Hey, let's open these things up!" Zimmer blurted out mid-sentence, prodding a Vikings official to push the button that removes the window shades and allows the premium ticket-holders in an adjacent lounge to peer in the room. His wish to interact with the customers who cheered the Vikings on to a last-play divisional round victory was granted. Zimmer then proceeded to slowly and rhythmically clap above his head, dignifying the ritual "Skol" chant performed by the purple-clad fans at each game honoring the area's Scandinavian heritage and the team's nickname. "You deserve it!" Zimmer said, again interrupting his own answer to acknowledge the crowd. From peers around the league to players in the locker room to people up and down the organization, there's a strong sentiment that Zimmer has earned this, too, pulling within one win of a Super Bowl appearance. The way the Vikings finished their 29-24 victory over New Orleans on a last-chance 61-yard touchdown pass from Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs suggested they're on some kind of charmed path, an uncharted territory for this championship-deprived franchise. Zimmer, for his part, has experienced his own share of painful setbacks. "I just think he was so proud of us," tight end Kyle Rudolph said. "Proud of us for fighting until there were zeros on the clock." Zimmer is only here, preparing the Vikings for the NFC title game in Philadelphia on Sunday, because he himself resisted the urge to quit. After being passed over for so many head coach vacancies during a six-year run as Cincinnati's defensive coordinator, Zimmer nearly canceled a second interview in Minnesota in 2014 after a different team that considered him chose a different candidate. He ignored the discouragement in his head, instead accepting the offer to become the ninth head coach in team history at age 57. "Sometimes you wonder, but I have a lot of confidence in myself," Zimmer said at his introductory news conference at team headquarters. "I feel like I was destined to do this." That first season, the Vikings improved by two wins to finish 7-9 with rookie Teddy Bridgewater forced into action ahead of schedule at quarterback and running back Adrian Peterson absent for all but one game because of the child abuse case and subsequent NFL discipline dispute he was involved in. In 2015, they went 11-5 and ended Green Bay's four-year hold on the NFC North title. The potholes in the road were waiting, though. Blair Walsh's 27-yard field-goal try went wide left at the end of the one-point wild-card round loss at home to Seattle. The 5-0 start in 2016 was washed away by a torrent of season-ending injuries, including Bridgewater, Peterson and several offensive linemen. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner resigned the day after Zimmer had the first of eight eye surgeries to address a torn retina. The third procedure forced him to miss a game for the first time in his career . The first quarter of the 2017 season brought knee injuries to quarterback Sam Bradford and running back Dalvin Cook, who needed reconstructive surgery to repair a torn ACL. The Vikings didn't blink, though, particularly with the experience of 2016 so fresh. Case Keenum deftly took over for Bradford, and Jerick McKinnon and Latavius Murray became a productive backfield tandem. All of these on-field hurdles have paled next to the pain Zimmer has endured in his personal life. His wife, Vikki, died suddenly in 2009. His father and former high school coach, Bill, passed away during training camp in 2015. Zimmer was hired by the Vikings because of his acumen as a defensive strategist and teacher, having started his 24-year NFL career as the defensive backs coach for Dallas before a promotion to defensive coordinator in 2000. Calling plays has been his forte, a responsibility he has yet to give up despite his duty as the main man on the staff on game day, but his ability to mold a disciplined, selfless unit from a collection of alpha males and high draft picks helped the Vikings' defense rank first in the league in 2017 in both fewest yards and points allowed. Beneath the gruff exterior is a deep affection for his players, an emotion that has caused his voice to crack and his eyes to well up several times over the years in various public discussions of their development or character. He's a football coach just like his father, though, and the critical eye and demanding approach are always quick to come out. "We can't make these mistakes in playoff games or we'll be going home," Zimmer said on Monday, reflecting on the reality of the performance after the euphoria of the winning play had worn off. Now the Vikings must go on the road to face a team with a 14-3 record just like theirs, the last and biggest obstacle looming before they can experience a Super Bowl. "We've got a bunch of fighters on this team," Zimmer said. "They've been a resilient bunch all year long. I expect it to continue to be that way.".....»»
