San Beda, La Salle score convincing victories in Filoil Preseason

San Beda University and De La Salle University both ended their elimination round assignments in the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament on the right note with separate convincing victories, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre. The Red Lions battled back from 10 points down to frustrate University of Sto. Tomas, 75-73. James Canlas fronted the rally and fired 21 points on top of three assists and two rebounds for the three-time NCAA champions who finished off an elims sweep with their seventh win in a row. Donald Tankoua brought the backup with a 19-point, 14-rebound double-double while Ralph Penuela and Clint Doliguez chimed in eight and seven markers, respectively. With the win, San Beda cemented its place as the top-seed in Group A. Meanwhile, the Green Archers clinched Group A's second-seed with a well-earned 84-70 win at the expense of San Sebastian College-Recoletos. The Taft-based team now turns its attention to Group B 3-seed Colegio de San Juan de Letran in the quarterfinals on Monday still at the same venue. In the day's other game, Far Eastern University gored Jose Rizal University, 66-53. Rookie playmaker Royce Alforque broke out with 14 points and three rebounds as the Tamaraws now charge into their quarters meeting with San Beda on a five-game win run. The Growling Tigers and the Heavy Bombers bowed out of the preseason tournament with 2-5 and 1-6 records, respectively.

FILOIL: UP transferee Rivero just made La Salle feel his presence at both ends

Ricci Rivero found himself and the University of the Philippines, his new team, down by as much as 14 points to De La Salle University, his old team, Sunday at Filoil Flying V Centre. It was at that point, however, that he dropped seven points in the last five minutes of regulation to will the Fighting Maroons back into the game. The last two of those points came after he fished a foul from Justine Baltazar and then converted the couple of charities. At the other end, he then snuffed out a triple try by Andrei Caracut, making sure the two teams needed overtime to settle the score. In all, the Green Archers were 32.9 seconds away from a win only to fall victim to Rivero's game-changing plays at both ends. Asked if he was inspired to play against his old team, though, State U's prized transferee downplayed whatever personal feelings he had on the match-up. "Nothing really special naman. Like what Coach Bo [Perasol] said, it's not about winning against La Salle or winning against any other team," he said. He then continued, "We're playing basketball here so it's about winning each and every game." Whatever it is, at the end of the day, it was the euro-stepping swingman who, together with Javi Gomez de Liano, lifted UP to a triumph over La Salle as he dropped 10 of his game-high 28 points in the extra session. Rivero made it a point to say, though, that even after this win, they are far from their goal. As he put it, "Not just beating this specific team or whatever makes you a good team. What makes you a good team is, first, staying together, trusting each other." He then continued, "Next is the willingness to win. It's not just beating this specific team." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

San Beda takes LPU’s best shot, still takes seventh straight win in NCAA 95

San Beda University continued to have all the answers for modern-day rival Lyceum of the Philippines University for a convincing 88-73 victory in the two team’s first meeting in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, Tuesday at Filoil Flying V Centre. The now-vacated places of Robert Bolick and Javee Mocon were simply filled by Evan Nelle and James Canlas as the Red Lions remained unscathed through seven games in their title defense. Well aware of all LPU had up its sleeve, San Beda was in complete command for majority of the matchup. "Unang-una, nagpapasalamat ako sa players ko for all the sacrifices they have had the past few days preparing for LPU," a more than satisfied head coach Boyet Fernandez said post-game. Of course, the Pirates kept coming and were within six, 64-70, inside the last seven minutes. In the next four minutes, however, Nelle sparked a 14-0 charge that re-increased the Red Lion edge to 84-64. The red and white would not be threatened the rest of the way as they re-asserted their mastery over the LPU crew they had downed in the Finals of the last two years. Nelle wound up with 14 points, all but five coming in the final frame, to go along with seven rebounds and four assists while "Bandana Bro" Canlas also added nine markers, four boards, and three dimes. Topping the scoring column for the defending champions was Calvin Oftana who posted a 20-point, 12-rebound double-double while Cameroonian bruiser Donald Tankoua had 19 markers and six boards of his own. Even after taking down another playoff hopeful, however, San Beda is well aware is has a long way to go. "Hopefully, we won't stop here. it's only one game and we have so many to go," coach Boyet said. On the other hand, the Pirates were sank for just the second time in eight games. Mike Nzeusseu, their powerhouse from Cameroon, paced them with 18 points and nine rebounds and he was backstopped by Jaycee Marcelino who had 13 markers, five assists, three steals, and two boards.

San Beda drops 46-point hammer on Perps for sixth straight win in NCAA 95

San Beda University counted five players in double-digits in a 46-point demolition of University of Perpetual Help, 102-56, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre. AC Soberano finished what Donald Tankoua started as both players wound up with 15 points in the Red Lions’ sixth straight win in their title defense in the NCAA 95 Men’s Basketball Tournament. "Credit to my boys for the win. They wanted to prove something," head coach Boyet Fernandez said. The defending champions started strong, shooting the lights out for 30 points in the opening salvo. Tankoua took charge from that timeframe, pounding in eight of his output while Clint Doliguez and Evan Nelle also added five markers apiece. In all, the San Beda starters took the fight out of all of their opponents by a score of 30-17 after the first quarter. The Altas would not be able to make a game out of it as Soberano caught fire in the final frame, scoring all of his output and by his lonesome, nearly matching their opponents in scoring. "AC made the most of his threes in the fourth. Hopefully, tuloy-tuloy na rin yung kumpyansa niya," coach Boyet said. The Red Lions' lead went as high as 52, 102-50, inside the last three minutes. They would not be able to get a make the rest of the way, but still wound up with the biggest margin of victory thus far in the tournament. For Perps, Edgar Charcos and Tonton Peralta each scored 13 points. With their defense missing in action all throughout, though, they absorbed their fourth loss in the last five games and now stand at 2-5.

NCAA 95: Playmaking Nelle puts on a show in San Beda s back-to-back wins

Evan Nelle set it all up, Calvin Oftana and James Canlas served up the goods, and San Beda University stamped its class on Jose Rizal University, 74-52, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre for back-to-back wins to begin the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament. Nelle only had five points, but threatened to top Jiovani Jalalon's record for assists in a game and totaled 14 at the end of it all. "We thought na yung 11 assists niya (at halftime), magiging record-breaking na, but we missed shots nung second half," head coach Boyet Fernandez said. Just at halftime, the second-year point guard already had 11 dimes, most of which went to "Bandana Bro" Canlas as well as Oftana. Those three was at the head of the spear as the Red Lions busted out a 15-0 run to open the matchup. In the end, Canlas had 17 points and eight rebounds while Oftana had 17 markers and 10 boards. Nelle also added three steals to his name as JB Bahio chimed in 11 points. The long-limbed playmaker just fell short of the 16 assists in a game once recorded by Jalalon when he was still playing for Arellano University back in 2015, but more importantly, thought that he should have done more in terms of scoring. "Bad game for me e. Honestly, hindi ako maka-shoot so nag-create na lang ako para sa teammates ko kasi sila, nakaka-shoot," he said. The Heavy Bombers got energized quite a bit by high school recruits Marwin Dionisio and John Amores. Still, that proved far from enough from preventing their second straight setback to start the season. BOX SCORES SAN BEDA 74 - Canlas 17, Oftana 17, Bahio 11, Doliguez 7, Tankoua 6, Soberano 6, Nelle 5, Abuda 3, Carino 2, Etrata 0, Alfaro 0, Obenza 0, Cuntapay 0, Visser 0 JRU 52 - Dionisio 13, Dela Rosa 11, Vasquez 9, Amores 8, Steinl 6, Jungco 2, Aguilar 2, Abaoag 1, Arenal 0, Dela Virgen 0, Macatangay 0 QUARTER SCORES: 21-10, 45-31, 66-43, 74-52 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

NCAA 95: Nelle wasn t making shots, but was making all the right plays for San Beda

Evan Nelle was off from the field, shooting just two of eight for San Beda University in their matchup opposite Jose Rizal University, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre. More particularly, the second-year guard who is a known knockdown shooter, only made good on two of his seven shots from deep. And so, showing much-welcome maturity, Nelle turned his attention on helping his team another way. "Bad game for me eh. Honestly, hindi ako maka-shoot so nag-create na lang ako para sa teammates ko kasi sila, nakaka-shoot," he said. He did that, and more, even threatening to top Jiovani Jalalon's record for assists in a game at 16. "Yun naman talaga ang trabaho ko eh: to pass," he said. Just at halftime, the 21-year-old had 11 dimes to his name. "We thought na yung 11 assists niya (at halftime), magiging record-breaking na, but we missed shots nung second half," head coach Boyet Fernandez said. He would only be able to add three more from that point, but nonetheless, there is no doubt it was his 14 assists that keyed the Red Lions' back-to-back wins to begin their title defense. And for Coach Boyet, this is just the start for their playmaker. As he put it, "One day, he'll be one of the best point guards in college and hopefully in the future, the PBA." He then continued, "He's good. He has to bulk up a bit lang kasi payat." Of course, Nelle's mentor knows what he's talking about as back in his playing days, the latter was one of the best playmakers in all of the PBA. For his part, though, the promising point guard is just returning the full faith that his coaches, his teammates, and the San Beda community have in him. "It's a privilege to be a starter for San Beda. Nagpapasalamat ako kay coach na pinagkakatiwalaan niya ako," he shared. He then continued, "Tapos when my teammates are making their shots din, mas madali mag-create. So basically, I just have to do my job." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

10 NCAA players to watch in Season 95

It’s important to note that half of the players who were picked in the first round of the 2018 PBA Draft were products of the country’s first collegiate sports league. CJay Perez and Robert Bolick have immediately become the cornerstones of Columbian Dyip and NorthPort Batang Pier, respectively. Javee Mocon, Jesper Ayaay, Michael Calisaan and JP Calvo have all received high praise from the coaches of their new teams. While last season’s heroes are now living their lifelong dreams in the PBA, new stars are looking to shine as NCAA Season 95 opens on July 7 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City. James Kwekuteye (SBU)   If there is one player worthy enough to succeed Bolick as the King Lion of Mendiola, it’s the 6’3” Fil-Canadian shooting guard, James Kwekuteye. As a rookie, Kwekuteye came off the bench for majority of the season and had limited time to really put his talent on display. But, when he did start, particularly in San Beda’s second round game against LPU, Kwekuteye proved that he could be a major threat as he scored a career-high 18 points for the Red Lions, matching the scoring output of Bolick. In that game, Bolick motivated Kwekuteye by saying, “they can’t stop you.” James Kwekuteye introduces himself to Lyceum with 18 big points! #NCAASeason94 #GalingNCAA pic.twitter.com/OQS5eZBTJL — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) October 18, 2018 As the new starting shooting guard of Coach Boyet Fernandez, Kwekuteye led San Beda in scoring in the 2019 Fil-Oil Flying V Pre-season Cup averaging 14.1 points per game.    Evan Nelle (SBU)   Another talented player who didn’t see the floor much last year due to the loaded roster of guards on the San Beda lineup was former NCAA Jrs. Finals MVP Evan Nelle. Evan Nelle repays coach Boyet Fernandez' trust by drilling the early three! #NCAASeason94 #GalingNCAA pic.twitter.com/kpfdsnro2i — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) September 11, 2018 Nelle was the fourth string point guard behind Bolick, Jo Presbitero and Radge Tongco in Season 94. But, with the graduation of all three aforementioned players, the keys to the Red Lions’ offense has fallen straight into Nelle’s hands. While sharing the backcourt with Kwekuteye, Nelle led San Beda to the 2019 FilOil Championship and averaged a league-best 4.7 assists per contest.    Donald Tankoua (SBU)   Aside from capturing the title in the country’s most prestigious pre-season tournament, Kwekuteye and Nelle were also named to the Mythical Five along with their starting center, Donald Tankoua.  Donald Tankoua drops 23 points to help San Beda end the eliminations on a high note. #NCAASeason94 #GalingNCAA pic.twitter.com/EUFpXnAt8T — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) October 23, 2018 The 6’6” Cameroonian big man has always been one of the most consistent players, year in and year out in the NCAA and will continue to be as he plays out his final year of eligibility in Season 95. Because he’s a walking double-double, expect Tankoua to be the early favorite to win MVP.   Mike Harry Nzeusseu (LPU)   Now, if there is anybody who possesses the physical attributes and the numbers to challenge Tankoua’s MVP campaign, it’s LPU’s Mike Harry Nzeusseu. Mike Harry Nzeusseu gets NASTY ???? #NCAASeason94 #NCAAFinals pic.twitter.com/yEAr0ywBPd — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) November 12, 2018 Nzeusseu ended last season without confirming that he would return to play one more year with the Pirates but his participation in the Fil-Oil tournament tells us that he will be back to anchor the defense of Coach Topex Robinson. And without Perez, the 6’6” center from the Republic of Cameroon will also have to do major damage on the offensive end as well.  Jayson David (LPU)   Jayson David picks Robert Bolick's pocket for the transition finish! #NCAASeason93 #NCAAStrong pic.twitter.com/Inl17UZbKq — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) November 7, 2017 Back in Season 91, the NCAA added a Most Improved Player trophy to their list of awardees for every basketball tournament. Based on the pre-season, former San Sebastian guard Jayson David has emerged as the frontrunner for that award as he has assumed the starting spot of Perez with LPU. David is no “Baby Beast”, but it seems that Robinson trusts him enough to be a critical piece in the Pirates’ quest to capture that elusive NCAA championship. He averaged 7.3 PPG, 6 RPG and 2.1 APG in the Fil-Oil tourney.   Jeo Ambohot (CSJL)   Another player who seems to have earned the trust of his coach is Jeo Ambohot. Under Coach Jeff Napa, the ‘23 for 23’ Gilas World Cup pool member came off the bench and underachieved, only averaging 7.2 PPG and 7.2 RPG for the Knights in Season 94. Jeo Ambohot can hit this all game long! ???? #NCAASeason94 #GalingNCAA pic.twitter.com/5NCj7tV7Gt — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) October 9, 2018 However, under new Letran Head Coach Bonnie Tan, Ambohot was being utilized as the starting center with last year’s Rookie of the Year, Larry Muyang coming off the bench in their pre-season games. Nevertheless, a player like Ambohot should not be happy with his dismal outing last year and should come out stronger in Season 95.    Renato Ular (CSJL)   Here’s a guy you probably haven’t heard about before. His name is Renato Ular. Ring a bell? Probably not. The last time he saw action was during his rookie year in Season 92. Actually, he didn’t even do much back then. He only played in four games in did not score a single point in any of those games. After two years as a spectator, Ular has finally rejoined the Letran lineup and was their best player in the Fil-Oil tournament averaging 9.8 PPG and 8.1 RPG. The last left-handed legend from Letran was Rey Nambatac. This lefty’s got a long way to go to get on the Sting Rey’s level, but expect him to be one of the Knights' primary attackers this year.   RK Ilagan (SSC-R)   RK Ilagan was FEELING IT from downtown, dropping a new career-high 2??6?? PTS vs Mapua! #NCAASeason94 #GalingNCAA pic.twitter.com/SDIaVmtzCF — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) October 12, 2018 Speaking of attacking, one player who will be more relentless than he’s ever been this Season 95 is RK Ilagan. The pride of Barrio Fugoso, Tondo, Manila ranked seventh in scoring last year, averaging 15.2 PPG and was the Golden Stags’ leading scorer despite the presence of Calisaan. Coach Egay Macaraya loves a shooter and will continue to give the green light to Ilagan who made more triples (40) than any player in the NCAA in Season 94.    Kent Salado (AU)   Prior to injuring his right knee on October 10, 2017 in an 85-79 Arellano win over SSC-R in Season 93, Kent Salado was one of the most exciting players in the NCAA. The spitfire point guard from Cagayan de Oro was averaging 19.1 PPG (2nd behind Perez) and 5.0 APG (2nd behind Bolick) for the Chiefs, taking over the driver’s seat that Jiovani Jalalon occupied during their run to the Finals in Season 92. Lervin Flores with a nice block, Kent Salado with an even better finish! #NCAASeason93 #NCAAStrong pic.twitter.com/ohK28fFFhS — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) September 15, 2017 Now that he’s finally had surgery to repair what was eventually revealed to be a torn ACL, Salado is looking to excite fans anew especially since Arellano University will serve as the host of the NCAA for the first time in league history. Justin Gutang (CSB)   Recently, I asked former Arellano Head Coach Jerry Codi?era who he thought had the makings of a star in the NCAA now that the likes of Perez and Bolick are in the pros. The “Defense Minister” immediately mentioned one name: Justin Gutang. The 6’3” Fil-American forward from San Francisco, California had an impressive rookie season, averaging 13.4 PPG, 6.2 RPG and 4.3 APG for the Blazers and winning the Slam Dunk contest along the way. Although we haven’t heard much from Gutang in the off-season, the fact that a PBA Legend still has him on his radar means that the kid’s potential cannot be ignored. ?Editor's Note: The list is based on pre-season performances of teams. There are some NCAA teams who have not partcipated in pre-season tournaments nor released line-ups.  ?Catch NCAA Season 95 starting July 7, Sunday, 11:30 am LIVE on S+A, S+A HD, Liga, Liga HD, iWant and via livestream.    .....»»

San Beda, Adamson set up semis date in Filoil Preseason

Three-time NCAA champion San Beda University has forged a 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament semifinals showdown with UAAP powerhouse Adamson University after the two teams won out in their respective games, Monday at Filoil Flying V Centre. The Red Lions had the 1-2 punch of sophomore studs Evan Nelle and James Canlas knock out fighting Far Eastern University, 60-52. Nelle starred with 16 points to go along with four assists, four rebounds, and two assists. He fired six of his output in a four minute spurt that re-increased the three-time NCAA champions' lead from two, 44-42, to eight, 54-46. Canlas shone bright himself with 13 markers, seven boards, two dimes, and one steal that snuffed out the Tamaraws' last try at a comeback inside the last two minutes. "I'm happy about their development," head coach Boyet Fernandez said post-game, nothing but satisfied with his second-year stars. "Sabi ko nga nung sa PBA D-League, bata pa mga players ko, pero yung development nila, you'll see the maturity of these two now." Donald Tankoua also chimed in 12 points and five rebounds for San Beda which remains undefeated after eight games. Earlier, the Soaring Falcons took the seat opposite the Red Lions by routing shorthanded San Sebastian College-Recoletos, 81-61. Congolese center Lenda Douanga posted a 17-point, 15-rebound double-double all while leading four other teammates in double-digit scoring. "Today, we just had to take care of business because we know very well San Sebastian is shorthanded," head coach Franz Pumaren said. That is exactly what Adamson did as Simon Camacho made his presence felt everywhere with 11 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, and one block while the backcourt of Jerom Lastimosa and Jerrick Ahanmisi merged for 24 markers, five boards, and four dimes. That total team effort was more than enough to put away the Golden Stags who were without ailing Allyn Bulanadi and then lost RK Ilagan to an apparent leg injury early in the game. The showdown between Adamson and San Beda is the main event for the preseason tournament's semifinals on Thursday still at the same venue. Meanwhile, Lyceum of the Philippines University made headway into the other semifinals pairing after taking the sting out of Centro Escolar University, 76-69. Alvin Baetiong and Reymar Caduyac showed the Pirates the way to the Final Four as the former finished with 13 points and five rebounds and the latter ended with 10 markers, three assists, and two boards. It was also those two who connived to quell the Scorpions' late-game rally and made sure their team overcame an apparent nose injury to top gun Jaycee Marcelino. LPU now await the winner between De La Salle University and Colegio de San Juan de Letran in their ongoing matchup. For nine-man CEU, Senegalese Maodo Malick Diouf fronted the effort with 17 points, 19 rebounds, seven assists, five blocks, and one steal.

Serrano carries La Salle over Letran and into Filoil Preseason semis

In a scoring spurt that last just a little over a minute, Monday at Filoil Flying V Centre, Encho Serrano put De La Salle University on his shoulders and then put away Colegio de San Juan de Letran, 80-69. Serrano scored eight straight points from the 3:44 to the 2:44 marks of the final frame to punctuate an 11-0 run that re-increased the Green Archers' lead from seven points, 65-58, to 16, 76-60. "At first, we were playing relaxed so we told them we need to make stops and we will be able to run. Ayun, naka-convert kami nung dulo," head coach Gian Nazario. The high-motor swingman wound up with 18 points on top of four rebounds, four assists, and two steals, energizing the Taft-based team to the semifinals of the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament where they will face off with Lyceum of the Philippines University. Andrei Caracut also added 15 points of his own while Justine Baltazar stuffed the stat sheet with 11 markers, nine rebounds, six assists, and four blocks. La Salle will now set its sights on a semifinals showdown on Thursday still at the same venue opposite the Pirates who will most likely be without Mike Nzeusseu, out with a hand injury, and Jaycee Marcelino, out with a nose injury. "They are still a strong team. We will prepare for them very well," coach Gian said. Allen Mina fronted the effort for the Knights with 19 points while Jeo Ambohot posted a 13-point, 10-rebound double-double.
