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......»»

NFL coaching carousel started spinning early this year

By Arnie Stapleton, Associated Press Judging by the jump start, it looks like we're headed for a ninth consecutive season with at least a half-dozen NFL head coaches getting canned. The coaching carousel began whirling earlier than usual this season with Jay Gruden getting fired by the Washington Redskins in October after an 0-5 start and Ron Rivera getting dumped this week by the Carolina Panthers (5-7) in the midst of a four-game skid. They could be joined soon by Jason Garrett in Dallas (6-7), Dan Quinn in Atlanta (3-9), Doug Marrone in Jacksonville (4-8) and Pat Shurmur, whose New York Giants are 2-10, and maybe even by rookie head coach Freddie Kitchens in Cleveland (5-7) and second-year coach Matt Patricia in Detroit (3-8-1). Rivera was 76-63-1, the most successful of the four head coaches in the Panthers' franchise history. Like John Fox, he guided the Panthers to a Super Bowl only to come up short. Gruden's six-year run in Washington was the longest for any coach in Daniel Snyder's two decades of ownership, but that run produced a 35-49-1 record, two winning seasons and one playoff appearance. "Welcome to the club, bro," remarked Raiders coach Jon Gruden, who was fired by the Buccaneers in 2008. The club will soon be accepting more members. Some strong possibilities: JASON GARRETT, Dallas Cowboys, 83-66 (.557) in 10th season. The Cowboys have lost seven of 10 since a 3-0 start but still lead the middling NFC East by a half game over Philadelphia, which hosts the last-place Giants on Monday night. "I don't know how it is, we're still in the lead for our division," QB Dak Prescott said after the Cowboys' 31-24 loss at Chicago on Thursday night. "Got to be thankful for that, but we can't hang our hat on that. We have to figure out our issues now, fix them and get better." Asked Friday on his weekly radio show on 103.The Fan in Dallas if he's embarrassed by how his team is playing, owner Jerry Jones retorted, "Hey, get your damn act together, yourself. Now, we're going to have a good visit this morning, but settle down just a little bit. ... I've been traveling all night and I don't have the patience to jack with you today." A good many Cowboys fans don't want to wait for Garret's contract to expire after the season for Jones to make a coaching change. DAN QUINN, Atlanta Falcons, 39-37 (.513) in fifth season. Last year's 7-9 collapse was blamed on injuries, but this year's 3-9 stumble could cost Quinn and general manager Thomas Dimitroff their jobs because of all those empty seats at glittering Mercedes-Benz Stadium. After taking the Falcons to Super Bowl 51, where they blew a 28-3 lead over New England, Atlanta has gone 21-25. The Falcons' 26-18 loss to New Orleans on Thanksgiving eliminated them, so December could be all about getting looks at young players, although Quinn said, "It’s always about playing our best to go win. That's the first priority." DOUG MARRONE, Jacksonville Jaguars, 20-26 (.435) in fourth season. The Jaguars have been blown out in four straight games, lopsided losses that crushed the team's playoff hopes and turned December into a debate about the futures of Marrone, personnel chief Tom Coughlin, general manager Dave Caldwell and quarterback Nick Foles. It's back to rookie Gardner Minshew at QB for the final month. Foles, who signed a four-year, $88 million contract last offseason, said he was going to "keep my head held high." Things aren't looking up for Marrone. PAT SHURMUR, New York Giants, 7-21 (.250) in second season. Expectations in East Rutherford, New Jersey, weren't high, but a return to respectability and a .500 record was a realistic goal for the Giants. Instead, the team might fail to even match last year's five-win total, and that puts Shurmur and general manager Dave Gettleman on notice. A loss at Philadelphia next Monday night would be the Giants' ninth straight, tying the franchise record for longest skid, set in 1976. Co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch haven't spoken publicly about the team since training camp, but back in August, Mara said, "I want to feel when I’m walking off the field after the last game of the season, whenever that is, that this franchise is headed in the right direction." FREDDIE KITCHENS, 5-7 (.333) in first season. Kitchens created a stir when he wore a shirt Friday night at the request of his daughters that read, "Pittsburgh started it" before the rematch with the Steelers, which they lost 20-13. "The T-shirt didn't cause us to give up 40-yard passes," Kitchens said. "We were ready to play. That's the only thing people need to be concerned about." Baker Mayfield wore a black cap after his last game that read "Miracle," which is what it probably will take for the Browns to salvage a season that began with high hopes and maybe even save Kitchens' job. MATT PATRICIA, 9-18-1 (.321), second season. The Lions have lost eight of nine since their 2-0-1 start and they've dropped five in a row. "It’s one of the toughest teams I’ve probably ever been around,” said Patricia, a former Patriots assistant coach. “This team fights like probably no other team I’ve ever seen. We’ve got to find a way to win.” Patricia is the seventh former assistant of Bill Belichick to get a head coaching job and all of them have losing records except for the Houston Texans' Bill O'Brien (50-42)......»»

NCAA 95 Stepladder Semifinals begins on S+A and iWant

Three schools will duke it out for the right to challenge defending champion San Beda University (SBU) Red Lions in the NCAA Season 95 stepladder semifinals starting this Tuesday (November 5) at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan City.    The match between fourth-seeded San Sebastian College-Recoletos (SSC-R) Golden Stags and third-seeded Colegio De San Juan De Letran (CSJL) Knights will air LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A and iWant at 4 pm.    The winner of the deathmatch will be facing the waiting Lyceum of the Philippines University (LPU) Pirates, which finished second after the elimination round, for the ticket to the championship match.   The stepladder semis came into effect after the Red Lions swept through the double round eliminations behind leading MVP candidate Calvin Oftana and talented point guard Evan Nelle.   The road to the Finals, and a date with the SBU Red Lions, is a steep one and Letran’s Jerrick Balanza, SSC-R’s Allyn Bulanadi, and LPU’s Jaycee and Jayvee Marcelino can’t wait to start the trek and try to unseat the fourpeat-seeking champions.   For Balanza and Bulanadi, they both still have memories of their Season 93 duel where the Stags upended the Knights to take the last ticket to the Final Four thanks to a Michael Calisaan triple. “I want to get that back (Season 93) for Rey (Nambatac). That is still on my mind and I am looking forward to seeing Baste,” shared Balanza.   Meanwhile, LPU’s Marcelino twins are preparing for a tough match, whichever between SSC-R or Letran advances. Previously, the Pirates were the last team to sweep the eliminations and had to wait for their opponents in the Finals. “Whoever we have to face, we’ll prepare for them the same way we prepare for each game,” Jayvee Marcelino said.   Don’t miss the NCAA Season 95 stepladder semis that starts on Tuesday (November 5) LIVE on S+A from the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan at 4 pm with the CSJL Knights facing the SSC-R Stags for the chance to face the LPU Pirates before booking a Finals ticket.   For news on NCAA, follow @ABSCBNSports on Facebook and Twitter and visit sports.abs-cbn.com.
