TNT coach Bong Ravena says absent Terrence Romeo ‘just sick’

MANILA, Philippines---TNT head coach Bong Ravena beat around the bush when asked about the status of polarizing guard Terrence Romeo with the team. Romeo is reportedly on the trading block after being absent from the team for some time now, but Ravena did not say exactly if the guard will be traded or not. Ravena did say that whatever's going on with Romeo is beneficial to both the former Far Eastern University star and the whole KaTropa team. "As of now, wherever he's in it's maybe the best for him and the team," said Ravena after the PBA Draft Sunday at Robinson's Manila.

It’s a go for Yap’s trial at Sandiganbayan

The Sandiganbayan will proceed with the trial of former Agriculture Secretary Arthur Yap, now a Bohol representative, in connection with an employee car plan deemed disadvantageous to the government. In a 32-page resolution dated Dec. 5, the court's Sixth Division denied Yap's motion to quash and affirmed that the elements of valid graft charges were sufficiently stated to warrant a full-blown trial. The cases stemmed from the approval of a car plan, which, from 2008 to 2009, allowed 10 Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) employees to use the agency's funds to secure personal loans they obtained from the Philippine National Bank (PNB). Yap argued that he was absent dur...Keep on reading: It’s a go for Yap’s trial at Sandiganbayan.....»»

Harris, Gallinari help Clippers edge Blazers 104-100

By Erik Garcia Gundersen, Associated Press PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Tobias Harris had 34 points and 11 rebounds, and the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Portland Trail Blazers 104-100 on Sunday night (Monday, PHL time). Danilo Gallinari made the tie-breaking jumper with 47 seconds left and added 17 points for the Clippers. Damian Lillard scored 30 points for Portland, which led by 13 at halftime but then had to play the second half without starting center Jusuf Nurkic because of a bruised shoulder. With Portland missing its defensive anchor, the Clippers began the half on a 20-4 run. The Clippers kept the momentum going, outscoring the Blazers 38-16 in the third quarter. With the game slipping away, Blazers coach Terry Stotts left Lillard in the game to start the fourth quarter, and the star guard’s personal 7-0 run in a span of 12 seconds tied it at 100 with 1:53 left. But Gallinari made a short pull-up jumper, Portland missed a couple jumpers on the next possession and Patrick Beverley clinched it with a pair of free throws. The loss ruined Maurice Harkless’ first start of the season. He had returned Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) from a knee injury that kept him out since Oct. 29 (Oct. 30, PHL time). TIP-INS Clippers: Los Angeles improved to 13-6, the best record in the Western Conference. The Clippers have done it with a roster absent of household names, but depth is the reason they are where they are. “You have seven or eight guys that can start and they do,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “We move it around. But as long as your group is good with that and the changes and we have good group.” Trail Blazers: After a strong start to the season, the Blazers sputtered in the last two games of their road trip, losing by a combined 71 points. The defense, which was at one point in the top five in the league, has fallen to 16th in defensive efficiency. “We’ve had three relatively poor defensive games, two of them against very good offensive teams,” coach Terry Stotts said before the game. “I am concerned. It’s not a trend I want to continue. Milwaukee was a train wreck.” UP NEXT Clippers: Host Phoenix on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time). Trail Blazers: Host Orlando on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time)......»»

VP: Imelda’s absence at sentencing a ‘mockery of justice’

The excuses given by former first lady Imelda Marcos for being absent during her sentencing for graft cases is a "mockery of justice," Vice President Leni Robredo said in a statement issued on Saturday.

Imelda gets 77 years but jail time doubted

Cautious jubilation greeted the Sandiganbayan's verdict on Friday finding former first lady Imelda Marcos guilty of graft and sentencing her to a maximum of 77 years in prison nearly three decades after the charges were filed against her.   Opponents of the Marcos dictatorship welcomed the decision but they also expressed doubts the ruling could be carried out under the Duterte administration.   In handing down its judgment, the antigraft court also ordered the arrest of the 89-year-old widow of dictator Ferdinand Marcos but allowed her to post bail of a still unspecified amount. She was also told to explain to the court in 30 days why she was absent when it ann...Keep on reading: Imelda gets 77 years but jail time doubted.....»»
