Angelica Panganiban on falling in love again: ‘May kaba lang’

After being heartbroken from her previous relationship, actress Angelica Panganiban said she is ready to open her heart again to someone new. "Kaya na. May kaba, may kaba lang talaga na 'Ito na! Ito na naman!' (I can. There's just jitters, like 'Here we go! Here we go again!)" she told talk show host Boy Abunda on "Tonight with Boy Abunda". "The past few relationships, hindi naman ako kinabahan eh. 'Yung mga huli, sige, game! Laban lang 'yan(With the past few relationships, I wasn't nervous. With the recent ones, okay, game! Fight on)!" Panganiban exclaimed. But now, she shared that she has mellowed and is being more careful.

UE still learning how to be more than just Alvin Pasaol in UAAP 81

University of the East was unable to build on its first win in the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament, falling to University of Sto. Tomas on Saturday. Alvin Pasaol gave it his all, as always, for the Red Warriors with 32 points on 9-of-21 shooting and 15 rebounds. Aside from him, however, the rest of the team combined to shoot 10-of 44 from the field as they dropped back to the bottom of the standings. In the eyes of first-year head coach Joe Silva, they failed to follow the system. “Siguro, they’re just so used to looking for Alvin, but I want to change that,” he said. He then continued, “They’re so used to that na ‘di pa consistent yung disiplina namin. So trabaho lang.” As they failed to follow the system, the team that had just defeated playoff hopeful Far Eastern University by 25 points was nowhere to be found. “That’s what I’ve been trying to tell them – consistency is what separates good teams from great teams. Great teams bring it day in and day out, night in and night out,” he said. For that, the rookie mentor took full responsibility. As he put it, “I told the boys when we won against FEU, a little success gets into our head. It’s dangerous kasi ‘di kami sanay manalo kaya we came complacent facing UST.” He then continued, “I take full responsibility kasi ‘di ko sila na-advice, kulang ang advice ko sa kanila.” Pasaol could only agree. “Sobrang confident na kaya namin ang UST, pero later on, stats don’t lie,” he said. Nonetheless, UE’s main man has full faith they will only move forward from this. “Bounce back lang ulit kami. Alam naman naming kayang-kaya namin,” he said. Coach Joe shares the same sentiments. “Goot thing for us is we’re coming off a loss and, at least, we’re going to learn from this. We will watch the tape and we’re going to be better,” he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

NCAA Season 94: Rolly, you will be missed

NCAA coaches and stars were one in saying that the passing of Rolly Manlapaz, considered as the voice of the college basketball, was a great loss in the tight-knit community. The former disk jockey and longtime UAAP and NCAA basketball barker, who also saw stints in volleyball games passed away Thursday after a bout with ALS. He was 58. “I just love the way he calls games,” said Lyceum of the Philippines head coach Topex Robinson. “Sometimes he makes it look like spooky by that sound but then again basketball will never be the same without that voice.” Manlapaz’s last stint with the NCAA was two years ago in Season 92 and called his last game four months ago in UAAP Season 80 women's volleyball Finals. His career spanned for two decades.  “I’m sure he will be remembered not only by the NCAA but by the whole basketball community,” he added. The voice that defined college and amateur basketball in this generation made even the most boring or one-sided game lively with his jewel of a voice and antics why calling out plays. Manlapaz can make an exciting game even more colorful, adding a different flavor and flare that only the stadium legend can deliver. Manlapaz also endeared himself with players and coaches by calling out their full name instead of their nicknames. “Sayang mami-miss namin ang mga sigaw niya dito sa Arena especially when he calls me Teodorico not Boyet. We’re gonna miss them,” said San Beda coach Boyet Fernandez. But Manlapaz’s greatest contribution in the game was his knack of baptizing players with lasting monikers. One of the cagers that got that honor was reigning NCAA Most Valuable Player CJ Perez.  Manlapaz gave Perez the moniker ‘Baby Beast’ when he was still playing for San Sebastian College’s high school team. Perez got the moniker for showing the same aggressiveness and tenacity of former Stag and now PBA star Calvin Abueva while wearing the same No. 7 jersey.  “Kay Sir Rolly nanggaling yung ‘Baby Beast’ na yun, noong FilOil pa lang ata yun,” Perez said. “It’s an honor na naging part siya ng mga league dito. Sobrang happy kami na nabibigyan kami ng moniker dahil sa kanya. Lumalabas ang pangalan namin dahil sa kanya.” San Beda’s Robert Bolick also shared his feelings on the passing of a friend. “Nagulat nga ako na ganyan ang nangyari akala ko naging OK na siya,” he said. “Nakaka-miss ‘yun kasi nakakagana maglaro ‘yun eh.” “Kaya ngayon ayoko na magganun-ganun (na layup). Dati kapag gumaganun ako siya kaagad yung, “Oh dipsy doo!” Ngayon medyo di na siya ganoon kasaya, nawawala ang saya,” he added. Manlapaz according to Bolick made any player perform better with his adrenaline-pumping calls. “Kahit sa UAAP ganoon ‘yan eh. ‘Pag tinawag nya ang pangalan mo parang feeling mo nasa NBA ka eh,” he said. “Maganda ang feeling kapag pumasok ka sa court. Nakakapagpaganda ng laro. Barker yun ang trabaho niya.” Bolick also remembered all the fun moments he had with Manlapaz. “Kahit noong La Salle pa ako kahit nasa bench lang ako tinatawag pa rin nya ako. Di ko nga alam eh (kung bakit ako tinatawag),” joked Bolick, drawing laughter from reporters. “Talagang may pinagsamahan din kaming dalawa. May koneksyon din kami.” “Nu’ng sa La Salle noong nag-championship kami sa UST, kapag nagwa-warmup kami ako pa rin tinatawag niya. Di ko nga alam, di naman ako naglalaro,” he continued. “Nahihiya tuloy akong mag-warmup.” “Nakaka-miss talaga yun and hopefully nasa magandang lugar na siya.”     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles          .....»»

UAAP: Michelle Morente is now a full-fledged Lady Spiker

Following a year of residency at De La Salle University, former Ateneo Lady Eagle Michelle Morente is now a full-fledged Lady Spiker after displaying her volleyball prowess once again in the sand court on Monday afternoon. Morente was ruled out of Ateneo de Manila University in June 2017 after not meeting academic requirements. By September of the same year, paths led her to De La Salle University. "Sobrang hindi ako makapaniwala kasi alam mo ‘yung I almost gave up on myself but then a lot of people na nasa likod ko sobrang sumusupport sa akin na ‘Mich kaya mo ‘yan andito lang kami para sayo,’" she said as she reflected on playing her first game representing La Salle. Because of her transfer, she had to wait another year before she could suit up for the Lady Spikers for indoor volleyball and that is if the coaching staff chooses for her to play. For now, she is doing her best in the beach volleyball tournament. "They said naman I’m cleared na for UAAP so hopefully sa indoor din cleared na rin ako. Up to the coaches, siyempre sabi nila pagpatuloy ko lang ‘yung grades ko and stuff like that ayun," said Morente, who is now an AB Psychology major. Morente, with her partner Tin Tiamzon, bagged their first win of the tournament over Far Eastern University in three sets, 21-14, 20-22, 15-10. "Siyempre first game jitters," she said referring to their second set meltdown, "Sinasabi ko nga parang rookie ulit ako ganung level kahit last playing year ko na pero alam mo yun it’s good to be back." "At first we were shaky. It’s a good thing that we won na pinaghirapan talaga namin ni Tin ito sa training and buti naman lumabas yung mga pinaghirapan namin," Morente added. If Morente is chosen to play for indoor volleyball for a one-and-done, her services will very much amp up La Salle's campaign especially since the opposite spiker position was vacated by Kianna Dy. Ironically, "Animo La Salle" were cheers she used to tune out when she was a Lady Eagle. But now donning green-and-white, those exact same cheers are Morente's motivation. But for her, regardless of what she color she is wearing, she is all here for the love of volleyball. "I think it’s the sport eh, the passion for the sport. Parang ako, sige I’m doing this for the sport, you know. Dahil La Salle na ako of course I’m gonna Animo La Salle," she said as she chuckled. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @the9cruz.....»»

NCAA: Calisaan wins it for Baste, but CSB puts game under protest

Michael Calisaan shot a split from the stripe and that proved to be more than enough for San Sebastian College-Recoletos to come away with a 66-65 victory versus College of St. Benilde on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Calisaan’s aggressive drive to the hole with the tally tied at 65-all and just 22 ticks to go got for him a foul and gave him free throws, one of which he used to lift the Golden Stags to another much-needed win in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament. “Sa totoo lang, happy ako sa nilalaro nng mga bata kasi everybody wants to win,” head coach Egay Macaraya said. “Hindi nagma-matter sa kanila who takes the shot. Kung ganito laro namin, maraming team na medyo mahihirapan sa amin sa second round.” That wasn’t the end of it just yet, however, as the Blazers have put the game under protest. After Calisaan made good on the first and muffed on the second, Yankie Haruna got the rebound and forwarded the ball to Justin Gutang who himself aggressively drove to the hole. Not long after, Gutang’s layup kissed the backboard before falling to the bottom of the net. However, following video reviews, referees determined that the ball did not leave Gutang’s fingertips before the final buzzer sounded. That preserved the decision in favor of Baste which improved 3-9. “Kahit anong mangyari, Benilde and Baste deserved to win this game kasi wala talagang bumitaw. I guess we’re just lucky na hindi counted,” coach Egay said. Calisaan wound up with 18 points on top of seven rebounds, four assists, and two steals while RK Ilagan and Allyn Bulanadi merged for 21 markers, seven boards, five dimes, and three pilfers. San Sebastian’s gritty finish to the game overcame Gutang’s best game yet with 28 points to go along with eight rebounds, five assists, and two steals. With his game-winner try not getting counted, however, CSB now falls to 7-4. BOX SCORES SAN SEBASTIAN 66 – Calisaan 18, Ilagan 11, Bulanadi 10, Capobres 10, Calma 6, Dela Cruz 5, Are 2, Valdez 2, Villapando 2, Desoyo 0, Isidro 0, Sumoda 0. CSB 65 –  Gutang 25, Leutcheu 9, Dixon 8, Carlos 7, Haruna 7, Young 5, Belgica 3, Nayve 1, Naboa 0, Pasturan 0.

1, done: Halep 1st No. 1 to lose 1st Open match; Serena wins

By Howard Fendrich, Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — Some players, like top-ranked Simona Halep, freely acknowledge they don't deal well with the hustle-and-bustle of the U.S. Open and all it entails. Others, like 44th-ranked Kaia Kanepi, take to the Big Apple and its Grand Slam tournament. Put those two types at opposite ends of a court at Flushing Meadows and watch what can happen: Halep made a quick-as-can-be exit Monday, overwhelmed by the power-based game of Kanepi 6-2, 6-4 to become the first No. 1-seeded woman to lose her opening match at the U.S. Open in the half-century of the professional era. On a Day 1 that featured the major tournament debut of 25-second serve clocks, Halep blamed opening-round jitters, a recurring theme throughout her career. The reigning French Open champion has now lost her first match at 12 of 34 career major appearances, a stunningly high rate for such an accomplished player. "It's always about the nerves," said Halep, who was beaten in the first round in New York by five-time major champion Maria Sharapova in 2017. "Even when you are there in the top, you feel the same nerves. You are human." She also offered up an explanation tied to this particular site. "Maybe the noise in the crowd. The city is busy. So everything together," said Halep, who was coming off consecutive runs to the final at hard-court tuneup tournaments at Cincinnati and Montreal. "I'm a quiet person, so maybe I like the smaller places." Her departure means she can't stand in the way of Serena Williams, who could have faced Halep in the fourth round. Williams, the 23-time major champion who missed last year's U.S. Open because she gave birth on Sept. 1, returned with a flourish, following singer Kelly Clarkson's opening night performance in Arthur Ashe Stadium with a 6-4, 6-0 victory over Magda Linette under the lights. "The first set was tight. It was my first back here in New York, so that wasn't the easiest," Williams told the crowd. "Once I got settled, I started doing what I'm trying to do in practice." Williams, a six-time winner at Flushing Meadows, moved a step closer to a possible third-round matchup against her older sister, two-time winner Venus, who defeated 2004 champion Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-3, 5-7, 6-3. Others making the second round included defending champion and No. 3 seed Sloane Stephens, two-time finalist Victoria Azarenka, and two-time major champ Garbine Muguruza. Four seeded men lost, including No. 8 Grigor Dimitrov against three-time major champion Stan Wawrinka, who also beat him in the first round of Wimbledon, No. 16 Kyle Edmund and No. 19 Roberto Bautista Agut. Andy Murray, whose three major titles include the 2012 U.S. Open, played his first Grand Slam match in more than a year and won, eliminating James Duckworth 6-7 (5), 6-3, 7-5, 6-3. At night, defending champion Rafael Nadal advanced when the man he beat in the 2013 French Open final, David Ferrer, stopped in the second set because of an injury, while 2009 champ Juan Martin del Potro had no trouble dismissing Donald Young 6-0, 6-3, 6-4. Halep's loss was the first match at the rebuilt Louis Armstrong Stadium, which now has about 14,000 seats and a retractable roof, and what a way to get things started. That cover was not needed to protect from rain on Day 1 at the year's last major tournament — although some protection from the bright sun and its 90-degree (33-degree Celsius) heat might have been in order. "The courts suit my game, and I love being in New York. I like the city," said Kanepi, who is from Estonia and is sharing a coach this week with another player, Andrea Petkovic. "I like the weather: humid and hot." But several players had trouble in the heat, struggling with cramping or simply breathing. Since professionals first were allowed to enter Grand Slam tournaments in 1968, only five times before Monday did women seeded No. 1 lose their opening match at a major — and never at the U.S. Open. It happened twice to Martina Hingis and once to Steffi Graf at Wimbledon, once to Angelique Kerber at the French Open and once to Virginia Ruzici at the Australian Open. Halep got off to a slow start at Roland Garros this year, too, dropping her opening set, also by a 6-2 score, but ended up pulling out the victory there and adding six more to lift the trophy. There would be no such turnaround for her against Kanepi, a big hitter who dictated the points to claim her second career win against a top-ranked player — but first top-20 victory since 2015. Kanepi has shown the occasional ability to grab significant results, including a run to the quarterfinals at Flushing Meadows a year ago. On this day, Kanepi took charge of baseline exchanges, compiling a 26-9 edge in winners, 14 on her favored forehand side alone. Wearing two strips of athletic tape on her left shoulder, the right-handed Kanepi also had far more unforced errors, 28-9, but that high-risk, high-reward style ultimately paid off. "I thought, 'I just have to be aggressive and try to stay calm,'" Kanepi said. Early in the second set, on the way to falling behind by two breaks at 3-0, Halep slammed her racket twice, drawing a warning for a code violation from the chair umpire. Eventually, Halep got going a bit, taking advantage of Kanepi's mistakes to break back twice and get to 4-all in that set, getting a lot of support from fans who repeatedly chanted her first name. "I was thinking about that: Why (did) they cheer so much for her? Because normally, they cheer for the underdog," Kanepi said with a smile. "It was a bit annoying for some time, but I got over it." Sure did. She ended a 14-stroke exchange with a cross-court forehand volley winner to break right back for a 5-4 lead, then served out the victory......»»

Coach Joe overseeing Pasaol’s transformation into a beast

Unlike De La Salle University and University of Sto. Tomas, who also have new coaches, University of the East will have a Mythical Team member fronting its new era. Alvin Pasaol, who famously scored 49-points in a game last season in the UAAP, will be playing two more years for the Red Warriors. That means that new mentor Joe Silva will have a top five player in his first year as at the helm for UE – as compared to Louie Gonzales with the Green Archers and Aldin Ayo with the Growling Tigers who wont' have that luxury.  Of course, Silva recognized how big is it to have somebody like that. “Siyempre, it helps na may Mythical 5 kami na go-to-guy,” he said of his main man who averaged 20.6 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.7 steals, and 1.6 assists last year. Still, UE’s new head coach, who knows a thing or two about top players, said we haven’t seen the best of Pasaol just yet. As he put it: “Alvin, for me, hasn’t reached his potential yet. Tip of the iceberg pa lang yan.” During his time as coach of the Ateneo De Manila Blue Eaglets, Silva had a hand in the development of the likes of Thirdy Ravena, Nieto twins Matt and Mike, SJ Belangel, Dave Ildefonso, and Kai Sotto. As such, he went on to point out that his new top gun, well-known for his big body, could do much more with better conditioning. “I want him to get stronger. Isipin niyo, he’s kind of on the pudgy side, tapos andami na niyang nagagawa,” he said. He then continued, “Paano pa kung kundisyon? He’ll be a beast.” A toned and tireless Alvin Pasaol? Could he score more than 49 points in a game? For his part, Pasaol said he’s ready and raring to answer his mentor’s challenge. “Sinasabi nga ni coach Joe na kailangang totally fit ako. Agree naman akong kailangan kong pumayat kahit konti para mas shifty pa akong gumalaw at mas kayang tumalon,” he said. That doesn’t mean, however, that the 49-point man we all have come to love is going away. “Kahit pumayat, ‘di naman mawawala yun. Siguro, mas lalo ko lang i-eenhance ginagawa ko para rin ma-break ko yung record ko,” he said. Along with the weight, though, Pasaol said he’s aiming to take the reins of leadership for the new-look Red Warriors. “Yung leadership, yun yung gusto kong ma-achieve ngayon. Gusto ko, lahat ng teammates ko, papagalingin ko,” he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
