Rugby trained La Salle s Taane Samuel to get physical in UAAP 81

Taane Samuel finally played a full game for De La Salle University in the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament. After missing 12 games due to a Jones fracture on his left foot, the Kiwi big man contributed eight points and three rebounds in the Green Archers’ 62-71 loss to archrival Ateneo de Manila University on Sunday. Of course, the first-year player acknowledged that it was pretty difficult to have his return come at a rivalry game. “It was tough, it was definitely tough especially since it’s an Ateneo-La Salle game,” he told reporters post-game. That was even truer as, apparently, he only found out that he was getting back into action just a day before the game itself. “I actually only got told yesterday that I was actually gonna play. Before that, I was just told I’m gonna be running and jogging,” he shared. He then continued, “I’m just really happy to be playing again.” Indeed, it was very much evident that Samuel was overjoyed to be taking the floor once more as he already had four points and three rebounds in just the first half. That, as well as some up close and personal moments with La Salle players. Asked about it after game, the 6-foot-8 center answered, “It’s just banter. It’s just in the game. Whatever happens on the court stays on the court.” He then continued, “I have a lot of respect to every player in every team. They’re just doing what they can do to win – just like what we’re doing.” After all, physicality is just what Samuel promises to bring to the table. “I’m kind of used to the physicality, coming from a rugby background before basketball. If someone pushes, I’ll push back,” he said. He then continued, “I mean, it’s nothing new to me. I’ll just keep matching and keep trying to play like how they play.” The even better news is that the 19-year-old is he would only get better. “(Doctors) say it’s fully healed. My rehab is going well,” he said. He then continued, “I’m not 100 percent yet, but after a couple of weeks, I’ll be good.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

UAAP: Adamson’s Pumaren had the best squeezed out of him by Ateneo’s Baldwin

Adamson University took down Ateneo de Manila University to open the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament. Perfectly executing the game plan that was prepared in the last three months by head coach Franz Pumaren and his staff, the Soaring Falcons sent a statement at the expense of the defending champion Blue Eagles. At the end of it all, Adamson’s coach Franz was nothing but satisfied that he got the better of Ateneo’s Tab Baldwin – the reigning and defending champion coach of the league. “I love coaching against Tab Baldwin because he’s a juice extractor. Talagang inii-squeeze whatever knowledge I have in basketball in a good way,” the former told reporters post-game. He then continued, “He pushes me to be thinking one step or even (just) half a step ahead of him.” Between them, Pumaren and Baldwin have six UAAP championships. That is exactly why the winning coach knew that even after the Soaring Falcons seemingly took the fight out of the Blue Eagles, the latter stormed right back to tie the tally at 68-all inside the last 80 seconds. Then, the multi-titled mentor told his wards to keep calm and collected. “When they were making a run, I kept telling my players during the timeout that we’re still good. I specifically mentioned to them that Ateneo is a streaky team and they will make their runs so we just have to hang on,” he shared. He then continued, “My only request to them is to keep the game close and let me coach.” That, Adamson did as its defense only allowed one more make the rest of the way just as Jerrick Ahanmisi, Papi Sarr, and Sean Manganti delivered the goods on offense. With the win, the Falcons soared to start the season. They aren’t getting too ahead of themselves just yet, though. Asked if the win proved that they are contenders, coach Franz answered, “We still have to prove ourselves. Winning one game in opening (weekend) winning one game against Ateneo won’t make us a championship team.” He then continued, “We’re still a team struggling to improve our position last season. I think we still have a lot of work to do.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
