PVL: Cool Smashers grab eighth straight win

Repeat-seeking Creamline shook off a cold start as the Cool Smashers turned back PacificTown Army, 16-25, 25-16, 25-22, 25-16, on Wednesday to keep their winning streak alive in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Reinforced Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Behind Kuttika Kaewpin of Thailand, Alyssa Valdez and Venezuelan Ale Blanco, Creamline stretched its winning romp further with its eight straight victory in nine outings to join PetroGazz at the top spot with 8-1 win-loss record. Kaewpin fired 16 attacks and had three kill blocks for 19 points and added 16 digs for teh Cool Smashers, who will close their elims campaign on Saturday against also-ran BaliPure. Blanco added 16 points off 10 attacks, four kill blocks and two aces while Valdez got 11 markers for Creamline, which had 47 attack points behind setter Jia Morado's 287 excellent sets.  “For our team it was really a bad first set, for Army it was a perfect set for them from the service line, from their attacks to their floor defense and their blocking talaga,” said Valdez. “Our errors were too many to count, lampas ata sa daliri during the first set. So going to the second set, coach Tai (Bundit) was asking us to compose ourselves and stay focus.” The Cool Smashers regrouped after a sluggish opening frame outing that saw Creamline fall into a 14-24 hole following an ace by Lady Troopers setter Alina Bicar. Creamline got its rhythm going in the second set but had to weather PacificTown Army’s late third set uprising. The Cool Smashers saw its 23-20 lead in the third frame cut to just one with Ukrainian import Lena Lymareva-Flink scoring off an attack and an ace. Lymareva-Flink committed an attack error before Kaewpin scored on a kill block to wrap the frame. It was all Creamline in the fourth as the Cool Smashers sent the Lady Troopers to their second straight defeat for a 4-5 slate. Lymareva-Flink posted 22 points built on 19 spikes and three aces while Jovelyn Gonzaga and American Jenelle Jordan finished with 10 and six markers, respectively, for PacificTown Army.    --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Bullpups claim yet another title in 2019 after clean sweep of Filoil Preseason

Even without its "Big Three," Nazareth School of National University still had more than enough to add yet another championship to its mantle, taming San Beda High School, 76-69, Sunday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Harold Alarcon waxed hot with 17 points to go along with three assists, two steals, and two rebounds while Tournament MVP Kevin Quiambao wound up with a 15-point, 15-rebound double-double. Those two were the engine and the fuel that allowed the Bullpups to overcome the absence of Gerry Abadiano, Terrence Fortea, and Carl Tamayo who are now in Qatar for a tour of duty with Gilas Youth. Nat Tulabut, a transferee from Lyceum of the Philippines University, also added 14 points while second-generation ballers Echo Laure and Kenji Duremdes chimed in four points and two steals, respectively. This is just latest championship for NU which had already won titles in the UAAP Juniors, NBTC Nationals, and Palarong Pambansa in the earlier part of the year. For the Red Cubs, Troy Valencia and Justine Sanchez showed the way as the former finished with 14 points, nine rebounds, and three steals while the latter ended with 12 markers, 15 boards, and two pilfers. They were without versatile forward Rhayyan Amsali who also is with Gilas Youth. Meanwhile, LPU sailed to the bronze medal after dispatching University of Perpetual Help, 79-78. This is the Junior Pirates' best finish yet and adds to the honors their top guns received as John Barba and Mac Guadana were named to the Mythical Team alongside NU's Quiambao and Tamayo and San Beda's Sanchez. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

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.

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.

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.

Cignal-Ateneo overwhelms 8-man CEU in Game 1 of PBA D-League Finals

Cignal-Ateneo lived up to the hype and clobbered Centro Escolar University, 101-66, Thursday at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan to take Game 1 of the 2019 PBA D-League Finals. The heavily favored Blue Eagles jumped on the hapless Scorpions in the second quarter, staging a 29-15 assault that made it a 54-31 lead at the half. The lead grew to as much as 39, 78-39, in the third frame. Isaac Go shot 4-of-6 from downtown to carry Cignal-Ateneo with 17 points, four rebounds, and two assists, while Thirdy Ravena added 15 points, seven rebounds, and three assists in the trouncing. SJ Belangel also made the most of his opportunities, firing nine of his 12 points in the first half as the Blue Eagles recorded the most lopsided PBA D-League Finals game in history with the 35-point rout. "We knew coming into the game that they went through a very tough best-of-three against St. Clare and we had more rest. We just wanted to make sure that we use our bench and I think that's what happened," said assistant coach Sandy Arespacochaga. Game 2 is scheduled on Tuesday at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig. Senegalese center Maodo Malick Diouf anchored the Scorpions in the losing effort with 21 points, 11 rebounds, four steals, and three assists.

7-man CEU wills its way to PBA D-League Finals date opposite Cignal-Ateneo

Centro Escolar University dug deep and pulled off an 89-72 Game Three semifinal shocker to boot St. Clare College Virtual Reality Tuesday at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig and progress to the 2019 PBA D-League Finals. "We didn't expect to be here, to make it to the Finals, but the heart and the desire to win ng mga players, there's no substitute for that," said coach Derrick Pumaren. The duo of Rich Guinitaran and Dave Bernabe stepped up big for the Scorpions, which had to deal with the absence of Senegalese big man Maodo Malick Diouf in the final three minutes of the game. Guinitaran uncorked 23 points and seven rebounds, as well as hitting the big three that erected an 83-68 advantage with 2:49 left. Bernabe contributed 16 of his 22 points in the second half, as well as hauling down 14 rebounds and five steals in the win. Diouf had to sit the waning moments of the game after being whistled for a flagrant foul penalty one for his landing spot foul against Raymond Rubio at the 3:11 mark of the fourth. But CEU's 20-4 third quarter tear was the x-factor in the game, changing the tide from a tight 38-39 halftime affair to a commanding 58-43 lead en route to taking the best-of-three series, two wins to one. CEU now makes a quick pivot with the best-of-five Finals against Cignal-Ateneo already set on Thursday at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. "For me, this team is already a champion. With all the adversities na nangyari, we still made it," sighed Pumaren.

FEU charges through UAAP rival Adamson in Filoil Preseason

Far Eastern University climbed out of .500 in the standings of the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament with a 66-63 triumph over UAAP rival Adamson University, Monday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Cameroonian big man Patrick Tchuente fueled the fire with 14 points while Ken Tuffin and Hubert Cani chimed in 12 and 11 markers, respectively, for the Tamaraws who got a third consecutive victory following back-to-back losses to begin the preseason. That was more than enough to overcome an off game from rising star L-Jay Gonzales who only had two points from his name in this one. For the Soaring Falcons, Congolese bruiser Lenda Douanga topped the scoring column with 17 points. With Jerrick Ahanmisi misfiring, however, they fell for the fourth time in five games. Meanwhile, Lyceum of the Philippines University unleashed its new secret weapon on an unsuspecting Jose Rizal University for an 86-79 decision. Transferee Jayson David made his presence felt with 16 points while Jaycee Marcelino brought the backup with 13 markers of his own as the Pirates sailed to a 5-1 record. In other results, Emilio Aguinaldo College came out on top of College of St. Benilde, 78-69, for its second win in seven starts.

UST’s Nonoy attends graduation then plays in All-Star Game

Mark Nonoy is University of Sto. Tomas' lone representative in the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason All-Star Game. When the showcase tipped off inside the Filoil Flying V Centre on Friday, however, the prized prospect was nowhere to be found. As it turns out, Nonoy was attending his high school graduation inside the UST campus in Espana. Once the program wrapped up at around 4:00 p.m., though, the 19-year-old made his way to the Filoil All-Star Game. "Gusto ko po talaga kasing ma-experience na makasama ko yung mga idol ko sa college at gusto ko rin po talagang makakuha ng experience sa kanila," he shared. And to do so, he booked an Angkas and rode on a motorcycle all the way to San Juan. Moments before the final frame of the game, Nonoy finally arrived at the venue. Not long after, he was sent in by head coach Franz Pumaren to help holding off the NCAA All-Stars. The 5-foot-8 playmaker did that and more, scoring eight points on top of three assists and three rebounds in 10 minutes of action as the UAAP All-Stars got the better of the NCAA All-Stars, 86-83. Of course, he was going to do what he has long been doing - go to work with or without warmups. "Iniisip ko lang na parehas kami pag nasa court ako. Kung anong matutulong ko sa teammates ko, yun ang gagawin ko," he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Arellano upsets Baste for Filoil Preseason breakthrough

Arellano University finally broke through under new head coach Cholo Martin, pulling off a 75-69 upset of San Sebastian College-Recoletos, Thursday at Filoil Flying V Centre Archie Concepcion spearheaded the attack with 21 points while Rence Alcoriza chimed in 15 markers of his own as the Chiefs scored their first win in five games in the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. In doing so, they also put the first blemish on the erstwhile perfect record of the Golden Stags who dropped to 3-1. Arellano’s breakthrough was made even more impressive by the fact that it was without floor leader Kent Salado who was attending to family matters as well as rotation big man Justin Arana who suffered an injury early in the game. Still, the Chiefs overcame those obstacles and ultimately gifted coach Cholo his first win after replacing Jerry Codinera. For Baste, RK Ilagan topped the scoring column with 21 points. Meanwhile, Far Eastern University yet again showed its horns, dropping Emilio Aguinaldo College, 73-72. Rising star L-Jay Gonzales showed the Tamaraws the way to an even 2-2 slate with 15 points. On the other hand, the now 1-5 Generals were paced by Marwin Taywan with 26 points.

UAAP: Coach Franz says Adamson now a destination for blue-chip recruits

Adamson University, new-look and all, is doing pretty well in the ongoing 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. Following the lead of Jerrick Ahanmisi and fanning the flames of the development of Simon Camacho and Jerom Lastimosa, the Soaring Falcons are now one of the league leaders in the preseason tournament. Of course, it's not only those three doing the heavy lifting as rookies Aaron Fermin and Joem Sabandal and first-year foreign reinforcement Lenda Douanga have also delivered much-welcome contributions. "I think we got very good recruits," head coach Franz Pumaren said after they improved to 3-1. "But basically, they still need to work on their individual skills." Aside from Fermin, a double-double machine from his time in Arellano High School, and Sabandal, a steadying force for Adamson HS, also now in San Marcelino are Lorenz Capulong, AP Manlapaz, Joshua Yerro, and Doria twins Adam and Andrey. That has given the blue and white one of the best recruiting classes in 2019. That big-time offseason haul proved coach Franz correct when he said that Adamson could now recruit with the best of the best. "Since I took over, I think we picked up a lot of respectability. We already established that Adamson can be a powerhouse in basketball," he said at the end of their campaign in UAAP 81 last November. He then continued, "Right now, we are a destination for high school kids who want to be developed." Without a doubt, getting the better of other suitors for the likes of blue-chip recruits Fermin, Sabandal, and Yerro is nothing but a welcome development for the Soaring Falcons - upstarts in terms of recruitment compared to the likes of Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, or San Beda University. And the reason for that is pretty simple - in the eyes of their mentor. As he put it, "We thrive on developing and bringing out the best in players. That's why I know that this is now a destination for aspiring players." He then continued, "If you want to be noticed, to be put on the map, of course, the right place to go is with us." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Spencer comes up clutch as UP comes alive anew in Filoil Preseason

Jun Manzo took the lead once more before James Spencer took matters in his own hands in the endgame as the University of the Philippines powered through for a well-earned 68-62 win against UCBL champion Centro Escolar University, Saturday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Manzo topped the scoring column with 17 points on top of six assists, three rebounds, and three steals, but it was Spencer who scored the Fighting Maroons' last five points in their bounce back win in the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. Playing without all of Juan Gomez de Liano, Kobe Paras, and Ricci Rivero, State U needed each and every one of the 32 minutes Manzo was on the floor to steady the ship. Still, the Scorpions kept coming and Maodo Malick Diouf's inside basket pulled them within one, 62-63, inside the last two minutes.

Caduyac, Nzeusseu power LPU past Letran

Raymar Caduyac poured 10 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter as Lyceum of the Philippines came back from 13 points down to beat Letran, 101-96, Friday in the 2019 FilOil Flying V Preseason Tournament. The Pirates recovered from a shaky first half to remain unbeaten in three games in Group B while handing the Knights first loss in four games. Caduyac provided the much-needed offensive firepower in the pivotal stretch of the fourth frame but it was Mike Nzeusseu who dropped the hammer with a one-handed and one slam with nine ticks left to wrap the win. “We beat ourselves in the first half,” said Pirates coach Topex Robinson. “Nabulaga kami with a very good first half from Letran.” Nzeusseu led LPU with 20 points and 10 rebounds, Jaycee Marcelino had 18 points, four boards and two steals while Jayson David contributed 11 markers for the Pirates. Letran saw its winning run snapped for a 3-1 card despite  the 30-point explosion of Allen Mina. Fran Yu got 15 points, five rebounds and three assists while Tommy Olivario had 10. In other results, De La Salle University weathered Centro Escolar University’s upset scare, 71-67, for a 3-1 win-loss record in Group A while San Sebastinan College beat University of the Philippines, 73-64. Encho Serrano led the Green Archers with 18 points while Justin Baltazar finished with a double-double with 14 markers and 10 boards. Aljun Melecio chipped in with 11 points for the Taft-based squad. The Scorpions cut DLSU’s lead to 69-67 with just a minute left off a Jan Formento triple. The Green Archers came up empty in the next possession but Formento missed his triple before Serrano drilled a layup to secure the win. Formento scored 22 for CEU, which slid to 2-1 mark. RK Ilagan posted 18 points while Allyn Bulanadi finished with 16 for the Stags. Ricci Rivero scored 19 points, Jun Manzo got 12 while reigning UAAP MVP Bright Akhuetie had 11 markers in a lost cause for the Maroons.   Meanwhile, College of St. Benilde defeated Jose Rizal University, 79-56. Yankie Hanruna caught fire as he steered the Blazers to its first win in  three outing, scoring 19 points in 7-of-10 field goal shooting to go with five rebounds. Justin Gutang and James Pasturan added nine markers each as CSB dictated the tempo of the game early with a backbreaking 18-4 first quarter blitz. The Bombers were no match to the guns of the Blazers as they dropped to 0-2 mark in Group B.
