Akari-Adamson soars to third win in a row

Akari-Adamson University did just enough to stave off Gamboa Coffee Mix-St. Clare, 92-85, for its third consecutive victory in the 2018 PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup on Thursday at Pasig's Ynares Arena. Jerrick Ahanmisi paced the Falcons with 18 points on a 2-of-5 clip from downtown, on top of six assists and three rebounds, while Cameroonian big man Papi Sarr hauled down 16 markers and eight boards. Sean Manganti also added 13 points, five rebounds, and four assists while Jerie Pingoy had 11 markers, four boards, and four dimes in the conquest. “I don’t think na ang kalaban namin is St. Clare. Ang kalaban namin si (Trevis) Jackson,” remarked coach Franz Pumaren as Akari-Adamson had to weather a late flurry from Gamboa-St. Clare courtesy of the Filipino-American guard who unloaded 12 of his 29 points in the fourth period. The Falcons couldn’t stop Jackson on the defensive end as he kept the Coffee Lovers in the game and helped his side fight back from a 10-point deficit with 2:41 remaining. Gamboa-St. Clare cut the deficit dow to just four, 85-89, before Manganti and Sarr made huge baskets to put the game away for good. “Right now, I’m still struggling to find the right combinations. I think we’re the only team who are using all of our players from the bench, but again, we’re here to develop our players,” said Pumaren. Akari-Adamson improved to 4-1, while Gamboa-St. Clare fell to 2-2 in the standings. Aris Dionisio chimed in 17 markers and 12 rebounds for the Coffee Lovers, but their efforts were spoiled by their 29 turnovers in the game.

TY Tang shines in one-off return

Go for Gold assistant coach TY Tang clarified that his comeback tour is good for only one game. "It's just a one-game contract," said Tang on Tuesday. "Coach Charles (Tiu)'s offer was just too grand that I can't say no. He told me he'll treat me." Admittedly out of shape for his first organized game in almost three years, Tang was satisfied with how he fared, finishing the game with two points, three assists, and a rebound in his 15 minutes of action.

Akari-Adamson turns it on in comeback victory vs Marinerong Pilipino

Jerrick Ahanmisi was the hero Akari-Adamson University needed as he towed his side to a thrilling 80-75 win against Marinerong Pilipino in its 2018 PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup opener on Thursday at the Ynares Arena in Pasig. The Filipino-Nigerian guard, who is the younger brother of Rain or Shine playmaker Maverick, secured the game-swinging steal and dished the assist to Simon Camacho who then converted on the three-point play in the final 10.9 seconds as the Falcons grabbed the 78-75 lead. Renzo Subido tried to knot the score at 78, but his trey went way short before Ahanmisi sealed the game shut from the free throw line. Ahanmisi shot 4-of-8 from beyond the arc to lead the flight for Akari-Adamson with 23 points, five rebounds, and four assists. Sean Manganti contributed 13 markers, three boards, two assists, and two blocks while Jerom Lastimosa got nine points for the Falcons. “I don’t know if they underestimated us because we’re a college team,” remarked coach Franz Pumaren about the upset, “but we’re here to prove something and show that we can compete.” Ahanmisi’s stellar sniping accounted for half of Akari-Adamson’s long bombs, as it went 8-of-18 in total from downtown. Billy Robles carried Marinerong Pilipino (1-1) with 13 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two steals, and two blocks while Kyle Toth got 11 markers, on a flawless 3-of-3 shooting from threes, and four boards in the defeat.

UP players to skip PBA D-League, says Perasol

Fans of the University of the Philippines will have to wait a little bit longer before seeing the Fighting Maroons on the court anew. Coach Bo Perasol said that instead of playing in the upcoming PBA D-League season, he advised his core players to focus on their studies as they prepare for next year's run in UAAP Season 81. "I told them to focus on their second semester studies," he said in a text message Tuesday. Javi Gomez de Liao, who was picked by Wangs Basketball-Letran, and Jerson Prado, who was selected by Gamboa-St. Clare, were picked in the 10th round of the 2017 PBA D-League Draft, but Perasol said that the two won't be making their debut in the developmental leagu...Keep on reading: UP players to skip PBA D-League, says Perasol.....»»

7 NCAA teams, 1 UAAP squad competing in D-League

Seventy percent of the NCAA will also be duking it out in the 2018 PBA D-League Draft. Colegio de San Juan de Letran, College of St. Benilde, Emilio Aguinaldo College, Jose Rizal University, Lyceum of the Philippines University, San Sebastian College-Recoletos, and University of Perpetual Help of the NCAA are set to see action in the Aspirants Cup tipping off on January 18 at Pasig’s Ynares Sports Arena. The Knights will be back in the tournament for the first time since 2015. Joining the developmental league again is all for, well, the development of the Intramuros-based squad with grand plans of contention for the next NCAA season. “Kailangan naming magka-experience in preparation for next season. Ang focus namin is yung bonding namin,” head coach Jeff Napa said. With the graduation of stalwart Rey Nambatac, Letran will be parading a rejiggered lineup led by Jerrick Balanza, JP Calvo, and Bong Quinto and bolstered by transferees Bonbon Batiller, Christian Fajarito, Larry Muyang, and Fran Yu. The Wangs-backed squad will also have a big boost for the D-League in the form of rookies Christian Bunag of Mapua University, Hubert Cani of Far Eastern University, and Henric Caunan of University of Sto. Tomas. The same goal goes for the Generals who have partnered with Batangas. “Para ito sa preparation namin sa NCAA,” mentor Ariel Sison said of his team bannered by Juju Bautista and Jerome Garcia. Only Arellano University, San Beda College, and Mapua did not join from the NCAA. The UAAP will also be represented by Adamson University while three other school-based squads in AMA, Centro Escolar University, and Gamboa Coffee-St. Clare. —- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Two Maroons drafted, but coach Bo urging them to focus on UAAP

Javi Gomez de Liano and Jerson Prado had their names called in the 2017 PBA D-League Draft. However, the two University of the Philippines players remain uncertain if they will suit up in the Aspirants Cup tipping off on January 18 at Pasig’s Ynares Sports Arena. As it turns out, Fighting Maroons’ head coach Bo Perasol advised against his players joining the developmental league so they can focus on their preparations for the next season of the UAAP. “Yes, I suggested to the team (that they withdraw from the D-League),” he told reporters. He then continued, “They will really have a hard time passing their classes if they’re going to miss those because of (D-League) practices and games. The second semester is very important in their eligibility for next season.” State U wants no complications as it gears up for a hopeful campaign a year from now with an intact core of GDL and his brother Juan, Jun Manzo, and Paul Desiderio along with transferees Bright Akhuetie and Jaydee Tungcab. For that to happen, all of them should pass their classes so there will be no problems with their eligibility. GDL went to Wangs-Letran while Prado went to Gamboa Coffee-St. Clare in the rookie selection process on Wednesday. Perasol’s advice also covered now PBA D-League veterans Desiderio, whose rights are with CEU, and Diego Dario, whose rights are with AMA. —- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Yemen family fears drone strikes under Trump – The Guardian

Every day, as they hear the whine of the drones overhead, the Tuaiman family waits for Donald Trump to finish killing them. The drones used to hover about once a week over al-Rawdah, the Yemeni village where the family lives, sending children running for cover. Now, according to Meqdad Tuaiman, the drones come every day – sometimes three or four times. Usually they arrive in the afternoon. Other times they come after sundown and linger until sunrise. The drones have not fired their weapons in four months, but their patrols have intensified since late January, when Trump took office. Meqdad, a 24-year-old used-car salesman and occasional pipeline guard, considers it no coincidence. In October 2011, Meqdad’s father, Saleh, and his 17-year-old brother Jalal were killed in a drone strike after they drove into the desert to find some missing camels. Another brother who was with them – Ezzaldeen, 14 – escaped the blast and hid until morning, when he found the two shattered bodies. In 2014, the Guardian gave Meqdad’s 13-year-old brother a camera to record his daily life. In January 2015, he too was killed in a drone strike. US drone strikes in Yemen are a key part of the campaign against al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), but the Tuaiman family denies any links to terrorism and say the family has never received any explanation from either US authorities or their Yemeni government allies. According to Meqdad, his brother Ezzaldeen has started to say: “They’re going to kill me next.” Under the Trump administration, airstrikes have escalated dramatically in Iraq and Syria, sending claims of civilian casualties skyrocketing. Airstrikes have also increased in Yemen, where the US campaign against Islamists has played out alongside a tangled civil war, which has already drawn in regional rivals Saudi Arabia and Iran. The Trump administration is considering plans to deepen US involvement in the civil war, which pits Iranian-backed Houthi rebels against the Persian Gulf states who support the exiled president Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi. The Tuaiman family feels pinioned between the two campaigns: its support for Hadi aligns them with the US – even as they fear being marked for death by US drone strikes. In Washington, Obama was criticized from the right for being too risk-averse even as human rights monitors said his administration’s guidance on avoiding civilian casualties was to lax. And under Trump, the guidance is a dead letter, an administration official recently told the Guardian. “Under Obama, Republicans constantly expressed concerns that White House micromanagement of how and where drones were deployed – and unrealistic rules of engagement for drone strikes – hampered US counterterrorism strategy. Even without formal guidance, Trump can reverse this by devolving strike authority to lower-level officials, and signal an acceptance for more strikes and thus more civilian casualties,” said Micah Zenko, who studies counterterrorism at the Council on Foreign Relations. Meqdad fears that Trump intends to make good on a promise he made in 2015: “When you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families.” US officials deny plans to implement such a policy, which legal experts say would constitute a war crime. But with three dead relatives, Meqdad is disinclined to rule it out. “Basically, we felt that [Trump has] no respect for human life. We felt very afraid”, Meqdad said, in a telephone interview arranged by the human rights group Reprieve. Meqdad said that if the US possesses any evidence against his family, “please bring it to court. We’re ready to explain in any US court.” From the Tuaiman’s Yemeni home to Iraq and Syria, the pace of US airstrikes has increased in recent weeks. Central Command has denied relaxing any relevant rules of engagement. Yet it has acknowledged, a December devolution of decision-making that made it quicker for US military “advisers” fighting alongside Iraqi forces in Mosul to call in airstrikes. “I think philosophically the president has made it very clear that he wants to give the commanders on the ground much more flexibility to execute their mission, especially when it comes to defeating Isis,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer said on Monday. US air force statistics show that since December, the US dropped vastly more bombs on Iraq and Syria than ever before in the two-and-a-half-year old war. In January, US warplanes loosed 3,600 munitions, followed in February by another 3,440. (March statistics are not yet available.) That blew away the previous high-water mark for monthly weapons releases: 3,242 in November 2015. The UK-based monitor group Airwars has said claims of civilian casualties caused by the US and its allies have risen so sharply that it lacks the resources to continue monitoring those alleged to have been caused by Russia, which the US had once criticized for indiscriminate bombing. In March 2017 alone, Airwars has tracked allegations of nearly 1,000 civilians killed in Iraq and Syria attributed to the US-led coalition. The Pentagon says it investigates credible claims of civilian deaths. But in Mosul, mass deaths apparently resulting from a 17 March US airstrike have caused international outcry and prompted the Iraqi government to pause its offensive. A similar trend is at work in Yemen. As of Wednesday, Trump’s 69th day in office, the US had conducted 37 drone strikes or raids beyond declared battlefields, at a rate of one strike every 1.8 days, said Zenko. Those strikes and raids have overwhelmingly focused on Yemen. [&'].....»»

After winning prestigious tournament, Pinay Alex Eala aims higher

Pinay tennis player Alex Eala is now aiming for a spot in the International Tennis Federation (ITF) World Juniors ranking weeks after stunning her opponents and winning the prestigious Les Petit 14 and Under European Championships in France several weeks ago. As a wild card entry in the contest, Eala soared to the top by winning all six of her games and beating Czech Linda Nozkova in comeback fashion.  The 13-year old stormed back from a one-set deficit and even trailed 3-5 in the third before coming up with the title. Not even Eala could believe that she could beat some of the world's best young tennis players, let alone go the tournament final.  "No, not at all like when I looked at the list sobrang daming gagaling na players, like the top of their country. I have seen them play before, they were really good I was actually expecting na mga hanggang quarters lang so ng nakarating ako ng finals grabe," she told ABS-CBN News' Dyan Castillejo in an interview. Her father, Michael was very much elated with the win, with some spectators and opponents even wondering if the sport is big in the Philippines.  Due to her impressive skill, Eala's opponents also thought that she trained abroad, but her grandfather and coach, Bob Maniego, politely ends that thought. The thirteen-year old rises in the wee hours of the morning to go to the gym for her strength and conditioning training before going to school, where she serves as class president in Colegio San Agustin. After school, Eala continues her grind by undergoing addtional training with her Lolo Bob. Maniego and Eala's training have finally paid off, wherein the tennis prodigy started swinging rackets in international tournaments at eight years old. She now aims to join her brother, Miko, who is ranked in the ITF's Top 400 World Rankings. For Alex, 2018 will become a better year as she has a chance to crack the ITF World Juniors' rankings as she was invited by the French Tennis Federation president Bernard Giudicelli himself as a wild card entry in the French Open Juniors Tennis Qualifiers in Paris in May, Eala's first ITF tournament.

UAAP VOLLEYBALL: UST silences Adamson in sweep

Depleted University of Sto. Tomas snapped Adamson University’s two-game winning streak with a 25-9,31-29, 25-19, victory Sunday in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Coming off a four-set loss to Ateneo de Manila University a week ago and missing the services of injured Fil-Italian Milena Alessandrini and libero Rica Rivera, the Tigresses vented their ire on the Lady Falcons to even their record to 2-2 tied with their victim, the Lady Eagles and Far Eastern University. Sisi Rondina played her usual explosive game, firing 22 points off 17 kills, four aces and a kill block while adding 16 digs for an all-around effort for the Espana-based squad. Dimdim Pacres and Carla Sandoval stepped up to score 13 and nine markers, respectively, for the Tigresses, who lost Rivera to a meniscus tear on her right knee early in the opening set of their game against Ateneo and Alessandrini to a right shoulder injury. Rivera is out for at least three weeks while Alessandrini will skip the rest of the first round. "Sabi ko lahat ng nangyayari may reason. Ang mga locals ito na ang pagkakataon and nag-respond naman sila para sa mga nawala," said Tigresses coach Kungfu Reyes.   UST was on fire to open the match but found trouble in the second set. But a gritty comeback in the second frame highlighted by saving five set points took the fight out of the Lady Falcons that the Tigers used as fuel to cruise in the third. Jema Galanza finished with 10 points while Mylene Paat and rookie Chiara Permentilla were limited to a combined 12 markers for Adamson.      --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Barcelona wins at Eibar 2-0 before trip to Chelsea in CL

By Joseph Wilson, Associated Press BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Lionel Messi looks ready for London. Barcelona's star helped to set up two goals to beat 10-man Eibar 2-0 on Saturday as the Spanish leaders warmed up for their visit to Chelsea in the Champions League. Barcelona broke its mini-slump of back-to-back draws to remain unbeaten through 24 rounds and extend its advantage over second-place Atletico Madrid to 10 points. Barcelona visits Stamford Bridge on Tuesday in the opening leg of the round of 16. "We will head to the match with confidence," Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets said about Chelsea. "We are having a good season, but that won't mean anything now. We are facing a tie against a great team that won its league last season. We know it will be difficult and that we have to play smart for 180 minutes." Eibar showed why it is one of the surprises of the season in Spain by taking the initiative first at Barcelona. But a moment of brilliance by Messi was all it took to swing the match Barcelona's way. Messi's weight-perfect pass threaded past three defenders left Luis Suarez all alone in the 16th minute. Suarez used a feint to bring goalkeeper Marco Dmitrovic to the turf before netting his 17th goal in the competition. Only Messi, with 20, has more. Messi played a big part in Jordi Alba's goal in the 88th, when he forced a save from Dmitrovic and Alba was free to finish it off. Suarez's goal came against the flow of the match. Pressing up the pitch and setting a fast pace, Eibar forwards Fabian Orellana, Takashi Inui and midfielder Joan Jordan threatened the visitors. Orellana damaged his team's chances of a comeback when he earned bookings in the 57th and 66th. The first card was for a a needless tackle that cut down Andres Iniesta. Orellana compounded that mistake when he batted a ball into the air with play stopped and the referee waiting for Eibar to return the ball to Barcelona to take a free kick. Eibar coach Jose Luis Mendilibar was also sent off minutes later for protesting when the referee did not book Suarez for lightly kicking the ball after play stopped for an offside call. Despite playing a man down, Eibar still managed to make Barcelona work. Inui had two attempts that required saves from goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen until Alba secured the three points. "Losing a player hurt them. It came at a moment when the game was tightly contested," Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde said. "It was important to win after the past two matches and knowing how difficult it would be against an Eibar that is having a great season." The loss was only the second for Eibar in its last 13 matches. It remained in seventh place. Atletico hosts Athletic Bilbao on Sunday. ___ SEVILLA AWAITS UNITED Sevilla also won before its Champions League meeting with Manchester United, beating Las Palmas 2-1 in the Canary Islands to move into fifth place. Sevilla hosts United on Wednesday to start their Champions League final-16 tie. ___ LATE TURNAROUND Valencia scored two late goals to snatch a 2-1 win at bottom side Malaga, which was left seven points from safety. Dani Parejo hit the winner with five minutes remaining when he converted a penalty kick after Ignasi Miguel earned a direct red card for pulling down Rodrigo Moreno with only the goalie to beat. Valencia, in third place, moved four points clear of Real Madrid before it visits Real Betis on Sunday. ___ DEPRESSED DEPORTIVO Deportivo lost its second straight match under new coach Clarence Seedorf after falling at Alaves 1-0. Deportivo remained in the relegation zone as its winless streak reached nine rounds......»»
