NCAA: Bolick doesn t score 50, San Beda still downs Arellano

San Beda University will have a twice-to-beat advantage against whoever it will face in the Final Four of the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament. The Red Lions scored the much-welcome playoff incentive after making quick work of also-ran Arellano University, 90-52, on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Robert Bolick didn’t have a historic 50-point performance like he did the last time the two teams met, but he still made waves all over with 11 points, nine assists, and five rebounds. As always, Javee Mocon was right there with him and posted a 24-point, 11-rebound double-double. “Springboard sa amin ‘to going into the Lyceum game – especially for our bench players,” he told reporters post-game. It was also Mocon who fronted the 16-8 second quarter that broke the game wide open for the defending champions. The Chiefs would never recover from there and only saw their opponents mount a lead of as much as 38. With the win, San Beda has secured a top two finish in the elimination rounds still with two games left on its schedule. “At least, ngayong twice-to-beat na kami, we will have to consider the rest of our elimination round games as playoff games,” coach Boyet said, referring to their last two assignments against Lyceum of the Philippines University and University of Perpetual Help, both already in the Final Four. On the other hand, already-eliminated Arellano saw its standing fall to 5-12. Dariel Bayla topped the scoring column with 12 points and six rebounds while Ian Alban chipped in 10 markers of his own. BOX SCORES SAN BEDA 90 – Mocon 24, Bolick 11, Oftana 9, Tankoua 8, Doliguez 8, Canlas 6, Carino 5, Nelle 5, Soberano 5, Cuntapay 4, Presbitero 3, Eugene 2, Tongco 0, Abuda 0, Cabanag 0 ARELLANO 52 – Bayla 12, Alban 10, Canete 7, Alcoriza 6, Dela Torre 5, Concepcion 4, Dela Cruz 2, Segura 2, Sera Josef 2, Sacramento 2, Ongolo Ongolo 0, Codinera 0 QUARTER SCORES: 22-15, 38-23, 60-37, 90-52 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PVL: Cool Smashers freeze Lady Falcons in straight sets

Creamline schooled Adamson-Akari on Wednesday with a 73-minute volleyball clinic at the FilOil Flying V Centre. Alyssa Valdez and Jema Galanza wreaked havoc on offense as the Cool Smashers collected their third straight win with a 25-16, 25-9, 25-20 drubbing of the Lady Falcons in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference. Creamline barely felt the absence of veteran middle Michele Gumabao, who flew to Albania to represent the country in the 2018 Miss Globe, with Valdez taking care of the offense with 22 points. Valdez unleashed 15 attacks, landed four aces with three kill blocks in the Cool Smashers' third win in four outings to tie idle Pocari Sweat-Air Force, which they will face next on Sunday. Former Queen Falcon Galanza displayed her efficiency on offense and defense with 11 points with all but one coming off kills while adding 13 digs and eight excellent receptions. Despite an easy crushing of the younger Adamson-Akari side, Valdez had nothing but kind words to the wards of head coach Air Padda. “They’re potential sa floor defense medyo siguro kailangan talaga sa side namin kailangan matyaga kami kasi malakas sila sa floor defense,” she said. “But I think medyo nag-struggle sila tapos madami silang miscommunication but I think they pretty did well.” Seldom-used Jem Gutierrez delivered eight points, Coleen Bravo got six while Pau Soriano retuned after recovering from a knee injury and chipped in three points in two sets of action for the Cool Smashers. Adamson-Akari absorbed its fourth loss in as many outings with no Lady Falcon scoring in double figures. Krich Macaslang had seven points while Bernadette Flora and Chiara Permentilla were limited to a combined seven-point outing.     ---   Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

YOUTH OLYMPICS: Golfer Saso tied for joint second after first round

BUENOS AIRES — Yuka Saso scored a one-over 71 for joint second place at the start of women’s golf while fencer Lawrence Everett Tan and swimmer Nicole Oliva failed to medal in their events on Tuesday in the 2018 Youth Olympic Games. Saso, the Asian Games individual champion, had to contend with the wind at the Hurlingham Club here after she bogeyed six holes to stay two shots behind leader Alesia Nobilio of Italy. The 17-year-old miscalculated three holes on the front nine and another three coming home, but her five birdies, including back-to-back efforts after a par on the par-3 No. 12, was enough to keep the Filipino-Japanese within striking distance. ``Mahangin sa course, mabuti na lang at naka-adjust ako,’’ said Saso, who shared second place with Maria Fernanda-Martinez of Mexico, Emille Oeveraas of Norway, Grace Kim of Australia and Hoyu-An of Chinese Taipei. Carl Jano Corpus, on the other hand, fired a similar 71 performance for a share of fifth place in men’s individual play. The Filipino was two strokes behind the leaders after he birdied holes No. 3, 4, 6 and 14. Akshai Bathia of the United States, Vanchai Luangnitikul of Thailand, Karl Vilips of Australia and Andrea Romano of Italy shared the lead at 69. In fencing, Tan bombed out of the medal stages after falling to Pak Chan of Hong Kong, 11-15, in the round of 16 of the men’s foil event. Chan raced to an early lead, 11-6, in their race-to-15 face-off but had to fend Tan’s rally late in the first three minutes of action. Filipino-Norwegian Christian Tio is still in the hunt for a podium performance after finishing second, fifth and eighth in the three races on Day 2 of the men’s kiteboarding competitions where the medalists will be determined on Oct. 12. Swimmer Nicole Oliva again failed to qualify in the finals of her second event at the Olympic Park pool. After missing the medal race in the women’s 100m freestyle on Monday, the Filipino-American based in Sta. Clara, California wasn’t able to make it in the 800m free after landing third in her heat with a 8:52.29 clocking......»»

WATCH: Japanese man hits sleeping woman on head with cellphone for leaning against him on a train

A Japanese man riding a train nonchalantly hit a sleeping woman on the head with his smartphone because she was leaning against him. Anyone who's commuted to work or school has fallen asleep during a ride. Sometimes, people can't help leaning on the shoulders of fellow passengers as they get jostled around by the vehicle they're on. And sometimes people just get really sleepy. One woman was caught on camera slumping and leaning against a man in a suit wearing a face mask as they both ride a train. The footage was shared by Twitter user "@SakuradaPC" on Oct. 3, as reported by My Game News Flash via SoraNews24. At first the man didn't appear to mind the sleeping woman as he hi...Keep on reading: WATCH: Japanese man hits sleeping woman on head with cellphone for leaning against him on a train.....»»

NCAA: Laminou ends up bloodied after sustaining cut near left eye

Emilio Aguinaldo College center Hamadou Laminou was left bloodied and stretchered off during the Generals game against University of Perpetual Help in the NCAA Season 94 men's basketball tournament on Tuesday. Laminou sustained a nasty cut above his left eye after inadvertently getting kneed on the back of his head by Perpetual Help's Jerome Pasia and the left side of his face subsequently hitting the parquet floor as he lost his balance while going for the basket. He stayed down on the floor for a few minutes before being carried out on the floor and into the dugout.

Help is coming for Barangay Ginebra. Greg Slaughter, Sol Mercado and Art dela Cruz may return from injuries this Saturday when the Gin Kings head to Lucena City, Quezon, to face the winless Rain or Shine Elasto Painters.

PH table tennis bet splits first 2 games, faces tougher road ahead in YOG

BUENOS AIRES---Jann Mari Nayre missed an trouble-free chance to book a trip in the crucial stages of the 2018 Youth Olympic Games table tennis competitions. The downer came for the country's table tennis ace when he surprisingly lost to Maciej Kolodziejcyzk of Austria, 9-11, 8-11, 1-11, 6-11 later in the Group B men's preliminary play. "I know the level of competition that I'm going to face here. I shouldn't lose hope in order to achieve my goal," said the 18-year-old who hardly made his presence felt in the Southeast Asian Games in Kuala Lumpur last year and in the recent Asian Games in Jakarta.

"American Dreamers" is a political album but also a collection of outstanding tracks that target both your senses and your conscience, presenting the musical talents of young people, often called "Dreamers", brought to the U.S. illegally as children and who now face an uncertain future as politicians are at a stalemate over their fate.

Bergman & Almodóvar: Odd couple at Fiesta Película

"Persona," one of the most influential films of all time, is widely regarded as Ingmar Bergman's masterpiece. It contains some of the most memorable images in cinema, notably the shot of a child touching a woman's face projected onto a screen, and the shot of two women looking into a mirror then folding into each other and overlapping. "Persona" has inspired a host of parodies about depression and psychoanalysis, so to the first-time viewer it may seem oddly familiar. We tend to forget that when the movie premiered in 1966, it was so new and obscure that critics did not know what to make of it. I admit to being one of those first-time viewers. I've seen Bergman's "The Seventh S...Keep on reading: Bergman & Almodóvar: Odd couple at Fiesta Película.....»»

PBA: Meralco still looking on the bright side after fifth straight loss

SANTA ROSA CITY -- For the past two Governors' Cup conferences, Meralco and Ginebra have headlined the Finals. In those two years, the fans were given numerous unforgettable moments that are now recorded in the annals of PBA history.  And for this year's Finals rematch, it was the same. Ginebra emerged victorious once again. However, a potential third straight Finals matchup is already on the line since the Gin Kings the Bolts their fifth consecutive loss. For guard Chris Newsome, things are continuing to stay positive in the locker room, despite not having the best of circumstances. Two key cogs in Meralco's rotation are still out. Jared Dillinger and Ranidel De Ocampo, both nursing leg injuries, are seen as veteran presences but are now relegated to mere voices on the bench. Things were actually pretty even for the majority of the game, and then Meralco surged to an eight-point lead, 84-72, in the late stages of the third quarter.  However, Ginebra flexed its muscles and responded with an 11-0 run of their own, and never looked back, much to the delight of the partisan crowd. "We just have to play smarter, those lapses cost us the game. Those lapses cost us the last game also. You know, 10 points with like four minutes to go, four, five minutes to go. We just have to be aware of those lapses, we have to play a solid 48 minutes if we're going to win, they're playing really well," Newsome said after the game. Of course, struggling is not anything new for Meralco, since they usually hover in the bottom half of the Philippine Cup standings. And when they face Northport on Friday at the Mall of Asia Arena, the team will be humming a familiar tune, despite the circumstances. "...[I]t seems such a hard hill to climb now so you know in our locker room, everybody's postitive, trying to keep their heads up. Of course, we're looking forward to brighter days."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»
