Lady Falcons collect third win in a row, remain unblemished

Adamson University kept its perfect record intact as the Lady Falcons easily picked their third win in as many outings with a 25-12, 25-14, 25-13 demolition of Technological Institute of the Philippines in Group B of the  inaugural Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference. The Lady Falcons solidified their hold of top spot and moved a step closer to clinching a semifinals berth. Jema Galanza pounded 11 attacks, nailed six aces and  a kill block for 18 points in an all-around performance that saw her also contribute 11 digs and five excellent receptions on defense for the San Marcelino-based squad. Joy Dacoron added 12 points while Fenela Emnas chipped in 23 excellent sets in Adamson's 44 attack points.    It was a quick stint for Adamson inside the FilOil Flying V Centre as the smaller Lady Engineers were no match against the rampaging Lady Falcons, who still have College of St. Benilde and San Beda College remaining in their elimination round assignments. TIP dropped to 0-3 mark and was pushed on the brink of elimination. Alyssa Layug scored eight points while Ashley Jinon had seven for the Lady Engineers, who only had 19 points off attacks.   ---       Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

Red Robins, Jr. Blazers still tied for first; San Beda stops skid

strong>STANDINGS /strong> br /> CSB-LSGH 10-2 br /> Malayan 10-2 br /> Letran 7-4 br /> San Beda 7-5 br /> Arellano 5-6 br /> San Sebastian 5-6 br /> LPU 5-7 br /> Perpetual 4-7 br /> JRU 3-8 br /> EAC 1-10 Defending champion Malayan High School of Science and oncoming College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills still have a score to settle in the NCAA 93 Juniors Basketball Tournament. The two teams remain in each other’s throats for first-place following separate wins on Thursday and Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. The defending champion Red Robins made quick work of the Brigadiers, 82-68, last Thursday. Team captain Warren Bonifacio showed the way with 19 points, nine rebounds, three assists, and two blocks while Clint Escamis also contributed 12 markers, seven boards, and one pilfer. They were never threated all throughout and waltzed their way onto a 10-2 standing. Tying them there once more are the Junior Blazers who rode Joshua Marcos’ career-best 22 points to go along with 12 rebounds past University of Perpetual Help, 82-69, on Friday. Marcos was backstopped by three other teammates in double-digits en route to a share of first. Court general Joel Cagulangan orchestrated the offensive with a total of 10 points, eight assists, and four rebounds. Their respective losses dropped the Junior Altas to 4-7 and the Brigadiers to 1-10. Meanwhile, San Beda High School finally got back on track following a gritty overtime victory versus San Sebastian College-Recoletos, 85-78. Evan Nelle was the difference, scoring eight points and assisting on five others in his team’s 13-6 extra period. The Red Cubs lost three in a row before the much-needed win. They now stand at 7-5, still solo fourth. Strengthening their stranglehold of third spot, however, is Colegio de San Juan de Letran which grounded Jose Rizal High School, 91-87. Kurt Reyson had 20 points to lead a total of four Squires in double-digits as they improved to 7-4. Their respective losses dropped the Staglets to 5-6 and the Light Bombers to 3-8. Also still in the running is Lyceum of the Philippines University which added to the woes of Arellano High School, 89-82. Mac Guadana topped the scoring column for the Junior Pirates with 19 points. They rose to 5-7 with the win. At the same time, LPU continued to drag down the Braves who are now 5-6 following back-to-back losses.

NCAA Juniors: San Beda Cubs smother Squires; Mapua, Lyceum prevail

This time around, the San Beda Red Cubs got big help underneath from alternate big man Josh Tagala.   Tagala, a 12th grade student, had only eight points, but his 12-rebound output helped the Red Cubs control the boards, and allowed them to coast to a 91-45 smothering of the Letran Squires at the Arena in San Juan.   He and slotman Sam Abu Hijle, who also had eight points, combined for 19 rebounds, and their efforts helped power the Red Cubs to their fourth win in five games in the 93rdNational Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) junior basketball tournament.   “Natutuwa ako. Everyone was sharp.  Pinaghandaan namin itong game,” said Red Cubs coach JB Sison.           The win put the Red Cubs in third spot behind the defending champion Mapua Red Robins and the La Salle Greenhills Junior Blazers.   “For the past three games, di maganda ang rebounding ko. Ito ang focus ko ngayon. Para more possessions for the team,” said Tagala.   Evan Nelle top-scored for a game-high 24 points, probably one of his best performances for the season, while Luke Sese added 15.   The Red Cubs quickly took control of the game with 17-8 advantage even as they took a lot of pain in shutting down one of the Squires prolific players, Enoch Valdez.   With Valdez was held to only three after being scoreless in the first two quarters with Abu Hijle and Germy Mahinay keeping an eye on him.   Nelle hit 11 points in the third period, and with his shots finding their mark for a 53 percent field goal percentage, the Red Cubs went on to enjoy a 60-30 spread at the end of the third.    Mapua-Malayan Science High School 99, EAC 60 Will Gozum led six teammates who scored in double digits as the defending champions Mapua-Malayan High School of Science Red Robins stamped their class on the Emilio Aguinaldo College Brigadiers, 99-60.   Gozum, a transferee from University of the Philippines Integrated School two years ago, made 15 points for the Red Robins, who led by as much as 52 points.   The Red Robins, who had a 55.26 percent shooting clip, went on to pick up win no. 4 and stayed in the solo lead.   Teammates Mike Enriquez, and Jeff Sapinit contributed 14 points while Gerard Sarmiento and team skipper Warren Bonifacio had 12 and 11 points.   “Tulong-tulong lang kaming lahat,” stated Bonifacio.   Bonifacio, Gozum and Sapinit had eight points each in the first period as the Red Robins went on to post a 30-17 edge when the second canto came.    Lyceum Junior Pirates 95, Arellano 85   Vincent Cunanan struck with a career-high 29 points as the Lyceum of the Philippines University fought their way out of a 13-point deficit midway in the game and upset the Arellano Braves 95-85.   John Barba had 16 points, including 10 in the third period.   Marj de Leon scored all of his 10 points in the third as he and Barba stepped in and helped the Junior Pirates turn the tables on the Braves with a 71-67 edge at the end of the third.   Cunanan led a  7-2 run that gave the Pirate an 87-76.   Kobe Camacho showed the way for the Braves with 27 points......»»
