Ateneo crushes NU by 34 points to stay spotless in Filoil Preseason

Ateneo de Manila University remains the pacesetter in the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament all while flexing its muscle up against a UAAP rival. Drawing contributions from up and down their lineup, the Blue Eagles routed National University for a convincing 94-60 victory on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Thirdy Ravena fronted the charge with 20 points while new reinforcement Angelo Kouame had 12 markers to his name. With Ravena on-point from the get-go, the reigning and defending UAAP champions blazed to a 26-10 start in the first quarter. They would never look back all the way to a still spotless 5-0 slate – good for joint first in Group A. Ateneo needs just one more win to secure a spot in the quarterfinals. Conversely, the Bulldogs now find themselves in a must-win situation as their latest lost drops their record to 2-5. Shaun Ildefonso was the only one in double-digits for them in this one with 16 points. Also still in the running for a quarters berth is the University of the Philippines which took care of business against University of the East, 66-61, even without top guns Paul Desiderio and Gomez de Liano brothers Javi and Juan. Nigerian powerhouse Bright Akhuetie posted a 17-point, 16-rebound double-double and Jun Manzo chipped in 13 markers of his own in the Fighting Maroons’ fifth win in a row after a 0-3 start to the tournament. With Juan GDL injured and Desiderio and Javi GDL tending to their studies, Janjan Jaboneta also stepped up with nine points, none bigger than a big-time triple with under a minute remaining. Overcoming the absence of its top guns, State U moved to solo fifth in Group A still win one assignment left in its schedule. Reymark Acuno paced the now 2-4 Red Warriors with 14 points. Meanwhile, Adamson University is the first team to deal a defeat to College of St. Benilde with an 80-60 whopping. Sean Manganti showed the way with 17 points, nine rebounds, and five assists while Jerom Lastimosa contributed 13 markers, five dimes, and three steals as the Soaring Falcons ascended to a 5-1 standing. Now tied with them for first-place in Group B are the Blazers who had Kendrix Belgica topping the scoring column with 18 points. In other results, Arellano University edged out Jose Rizal University, 76-74, to improve to 3-3. On the other hand, the Heavy Bombers finished the preseason without a win.

Ateneo tops San Beda to take Filoil Preseason crown

For the third year in a row, there has been a clean sweep of the Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. And just like in 2017, the 2018 edition of the tournament has seen one sweeping squad get replaced by another. Claiming control from the get-go on Saturday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, Ateneo de Manila University didn’t give any chances to now dethroned champion San Beda University for a convincing 76-62 victory. The Blue Eagles scored the first basket and seized the lead right from tip-off. “We gotta give credit to the players. We didn’t really have practices so it was all verbal,” coach Sandy Arespacochaga said post-game. Still, the Red Lions were only behind by four after the opening salvo until Ivorian reinforcement Angelo Kouame imposed his will down low and fueled Ateneo’s 26-11 rush that mounted a 45-26 lead. San Beda would not be able to threaten from that point. With that, the UAAP champions proved that they were the top team in the tournament. Kouame finished with 15 points, 16 rebounds, and three blocks en route to being hailed as the Tournament MVP. “We’re very happy for him individually. We’d like to see him continue to improve,” Arespacochaga said. Fellow Mythical team member Thirdy Ravena contributed seven points, two rebounds, and two assists while Jolo Mendoza and Raffy Verano also added nine markers each. Ateneo’s sweep of the 2018 Filoil Preseason follows San Beda’s sweep of the 2017 Filoil Preseason which itself followed De La Salle University’s sweep of the 2016 Filoil Preseason. Last year, the Red Lions dethroned the Green Archers en route to a clean sweep. San Beda got a taste of its own medicine this time around, falling victim to a Blue Eagle side that did not lose in 11 games. Javee Mocon showed the way for them with a 14-point, 12-rebound double-double. Donald Tankoua also had 13 markers and five boards. Robert Bolick was scoreless in 10 minutes of play, but did not play much of the second half after suffering an apparent ankle injury in the second quarter. In the battle for third, Far Eastern University made quick work of College of St. Benilde, 78-58. No Tamaraw was in double-digits, but they counted seven players who contributed somewhere between six to nine points in the scoring column. For the Blazers, Kendrix Belgica and Robbie Nayve topped the scoring column with 12 points apiece. However, they elected not to play top guns Justin Gutang and Clement Leutcheu to rest them for the looming NCAA season.

San Beda silences CSB to set up Finals duel against Ateneo

College of St. Benilde is for real, but San Beda University remains the defending champion in the NCAA and in the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup. The Blazers gave it all they’ve got, but in the end, the Red Lions’ poise yet again proved to be the difference in a well-earned 78-71 win on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. San Beda, the winners of the preseason tournament a year ago, was actually the lower-seed to a CSB crew that has been opening eyes. “First, I gotta give credit to St. Benilde. They really played well tonight and sabi ko talaga sa players ko, we have to match their effort,” San Beda head coach Boyet Fernandez said post-game. Indeed, the Blazers continued to do just that as Justin Gutang waxed hot with 22 points, the last three of which pulled his team to within 71-74 with 40.6 ticks to go on the clock. The Red Lions’ championship experience came through anew, though, as even incoming first-year players Toba Eugene and Evan Nelle made good on all four of their free throws to close the door on their opponents once and for all. Nelle wound up with five points and four rebounds while Eugene hauled in 14 markers and six boards. Donald Tankoua also had 14 points and five rebounds and Javee Mocon posted a 13-marker, 12-board double-double to make up for quite the quiet game from Robert Bolick who scored nine points. Now, the defending Filoil Preseason and NCAA champions turn their attention to UAAP king Ateneo de Manila University. “Hopefully, we’ll be ready for Ateneo. They probably have jet lag for now, but they’re still the champions of the UAAP,” Fernandez said, referring to the fact that the Blue Eagles had just come home from a series of tuneup games in Greece. That Finals showdown tips off on Saturday evening still at the same venue. Gutang paced CSB while Clement Leutcheu chipped in 15 points and 10 rebounds. Even with the semifinals loss, the entire preseason has been nothing but a positive sign for them.

UAAP F4 rematch between Ateneo, FEU in Filoil Preseason semis

Ateneo de Manila University was 25.3 seconds away from its very first loss in the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup – the very first loss that would boot it out of contention. Matt Nieto was having none of it, however, and made good on back-to-back short stabs that lifted the Blue Eagles over very game Colegio de San Juan de Letran, 74-72, on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Nieto only had nine points in the end, but four of those came when it mattered most. “In the end, I’m glad that we were able to get some stops and execute our plays. I’d like to thank our players for digging deep especially in the last few minutes,” coach Sandy Arrespacochaga said post-game. In a close contest that featured 10 deadlocks and eight lead changes, Bong Quinto put the Knights up by two with 25.3 ticks to go on the clock. Off a timeout, Arrespacochaga, filling in for Tab Baldwin, went to his court general. Nieto, not even 24 hours back home from a series of tuneup games in Greece, did nothing but deliver, leaving JP Calvo in the dust at the top of the key and then making good on a layup while also fishing a foul. He missed the freebie, but Angelo Kouame kept the ball alive. Ateneo then went back to Nieto and he came through once more to grant his team a 74-72 edge. Letran still had 5.4 seconds to make something happen, but Jeo Ambohot’s triple try hit back rim, finishing the job on the Blue Eagles ascent into the semifinals where they meet UAAP rival Far Eastern University. There would be no Ateneo-La Salle in the semis as the Green Archers were ousted by the Tamaraws in the earlier game. Hubert Cani caught fire in the endgame and fired half of his 22 points to shoot FEU over La Salle, 76-69. Aljun Melecio’s triple put the Taft-based team on top, 65-63, inside the last four minutes before Cani quickly countered with a corner three. From there, Cani buried four straight fadeaway midrange jumpers over the outstretched arms of different defenders to outscore all of the Green Archers. Already in front, 74-69, with 27.8 ticks to go, the Tamaraws charged ahead for good with a defensive stop and then a breakaway layup courtesy from Wendell Comboy. For head coach Olsen Racela, their advance into the semis is just another opportunity for his boys to get better. “Nagustuhan ko lang ngayon, we have one more game to prepare us for the season. Ang maganda, we get to play favored teams na magpe-prepare sa amin this season,” he said. Andrei Caracut paced La Salle with 15 points. Their 7-3 performance in the preseason is nonetheless promising despite the quarterfinals exit. For the Knights, JP Calvo topped the scoring column with 16 points. They bow out of the tournament with a 5-4 record and after a gallant stand up against the UAAP champions.

Gilas Cadets crush Cardinals for third win

Robert Bolick debuted with a bang as he led the beefed up Gilas Pilipinas Cadets, 97-78, over Mapua University on Monday in Group A of the 12th FilOil Flying V Preseason Cup at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The San Beda University star scored 13 points in his first game for the national squad, which won its third game in eight outings. Aside from Bolick, Fil-American Troy Rike and Ateneo stars Matt Nieto and Thirdy Ravena saw action for the Gilas Cadets for the first time. Rike, a recruit from Wake Forest, finished with 11 points and eight rebounds while Nieto and Ravena, who played for the Blue Eagles earlier in a 108-44 blowout win over Emilio Aguinaldo College, chipped in with nine and eight points, respectively, for the Gilas Cadets. Kobe Paras had 12.      “We’re just experimenting on some things. We played three bigs, it’s all experimental. You know it worked. We’re just trying to see how we can make use of all the Cadets players,” said head coach Jong Uichico. The Gilas Cadets went off to a good start to take control of the match early before closing it out with stronger finish. Cedric Pelayo and Eric Jabel scored 14 each while Lawrence Victoria and Daniel Aguirre posted 12 and 11 markers, respectively, for the 3-3 Cardinals. Meanwhile, the Red Lions banked on their crucial defensive stops by Donald Tankoua and the steady hands of Javee Mocon at the foul line in the last 50 seconds of the game to put a dent on De La Salle University's erswhile unbeaten record, 72-70, in the night cap. Mocon finished with 20 points while Tankoua had nine markers for SBU, which improved to 3-2 slate. Mocon broke a 68-68 deadlock with 48.8 seconds remaining with three free throws off a foul from Kira Samuel, who tied the game in the previous play. Tankoua made two defensive stops in the Green Archers' possesion - a block oon Samuel and a steal off an inbound pass.  Tankoua split his free throws with 21.5 ticks left to give the Red Lions a four-point cushion. DLSU saw its six-game winning streak snapped. Andrei Caracut finished with 20 points while Justine Baltazar and Samuel had 13 each for the Green Archers.              Box score: GILAS (97) –- Bolick 13, Paras 12, Rike 11, Nieto 9, Ravena 8, Tuffin 8, Tamayo 6, Alejandro 5, Sotto 5, Gozum 5, Tratter 4, Go 4, Tolentino 4, Mocon 3, Tolentino Vi 0.

Desiderio, Javi GDL propel UP to fourth win in a row in Filoil Preseason

Even without Juan Gomez de Liano and Bright Akhuetie, the University of the Philippines kept rolling in the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup. Javi GDL stepped up big-time while Paul Desiderio held down the fort in the endgame as the Fighting Maroons made quick work of Emilio Aguinaldo College, 83-70, on Monday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. The older GDL made an impact for each and every second he was on the floor and totaled 21 points in 8-of-10 shooting while Desiderio had all the answers for State U in the final frame en route to a 16-point, eight-rebound, and four-assist performance. Behind those two, UP overcame the absences of Juan GDL who was out with an ankle sprain and Akhuetie who was suited up but did not play. Will Gozum and Jun Manzo also added 12 points each as the Fighting Maroons went on an all-out attack for their fourth consecutive victory coming from a 0-3 start to the tournament. JP Maguliano posted a 15-point, 10-rebound double-double for the Generals who remain winless in five games. In the day’s other games, University of the East put the first blemish on the formerly spotless slate of Mapua University with a 92-84 decision while Adamson University flew higher than Jose Rizal University for a 74-67 win.

Former La Salle big man J-Boy Gob to rise again in UP

There is no more stopping the University of the Philippines from taking in talent. The Fighting Maroons are getting yet another talented transferee in former De La Salle University big man J-Boy Gob. The development was confirmed by head coach Bo Perasol himself on Monday. “He’ll be a welcome addition. He’s full of drive, full of talent, and he can shoot,” he told reporters. He then continued, “But he needs to have that opportunity to showcase whatever he has.” Gob is a 6-foot-5 tower who stood strong for La Salle Greenhills averaging 14.9 points and 15.1 rebounds in his last year there before totaling one point and one rebound as a rookie with the Green Archers in Season 78. Unfortunately, he then tore his ACL in back-to-back years. The 21-year-old Gob’s last game for La Salle’s Team A was in May 11 in the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup before getting re-assigned to its Team B. From there, he decided he would continue his collegiate career somewhere else. Good thing for State U, Perasol has always had his eye on Gob. “In fact, I really wanted to have him when I was in Ateneo, but he opted to go to La Salle,” the former Blue Eagles mentor shared. He then continued, “At least this time, we can really have him.” After serving his one-year residency, new UP big man Gob will be officially donning the maroon and green for Season 82. Then, he will be alongside fellow transferee Ricci Rivero as well as a more seasoned core including Bright Akhuetie, Gomez de Liano brothers Javi and Juan, Will Gozum, Jun Manzo, David Murell, and Jaydee Tungcab. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

La Salle stays spotless in Filoil Preseason after dropping UE

De La Salle University is yet to falter in the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason. Alvin Pasaol and University of the East did their best, but the Green Archers just leaned on total team effort to fend them off for a 71-62 decision on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Returning player Mark Dyke topped the scoring column for the Taft-based team with 18 points on top of nine rebounds and flanking him were twin towers Taane Samuel and Justine Baltazar who had 12 and 11 markers, respectively. The Red Warriors were still in the game to start the final frame only to see Samuel and Baltazar impose their will inside to fuel La Salle to what was ultimately their fifth win in as many games in the tournament. Pasaol paced UE with 20 points. They put up another good fight which eventually ended as their second straight loss in four starts. Meanwhile, Colegio de San Juan de Letran sent a statement to NCAA rival Jose Rizal University with a 23-point beatdown, 94-71. Bong Quinto was unstoppable and finished with 17 points while JP Calvo masterfully orchestrated the attack with 18 markers of his own to go along with seven assists, five rebounds, and two steals to help the Knights improve to 3-2. On the other hand, the Heavy Bombers remained winless through six games despite the best efforts of Darius Estrella who had 17 points to his name. In other results, Adamson University bounced right back into the winners’ circle via a 67-61 victory versus Arellano University while Far Eastern University is still streaking after charging through University of Sto.

Kai debuts for Gilas cadets, delivers much-needed win

Nothing much was going right for the Gilas cadets in their matchup against University of the East on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. That was until Kai Sotto entered the court. Sotto was a difference-maker on both ends in the last nine minutes while Ricci Rivero and Juan Gomez de Liano came through in the endgame as the national team rallied from 11 points down for a 63-61 triumph over the Red Warriors. The UAAP Juniors Finals MVP just had five points, three rebounds, and two blocks to his name, but it was during his time on the floor when the Gilas cadets went on a 13-0 run that erased an 11-point deficit and eventually ended as a much-needed two-point win in the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup. “It’s good to be a seven-footer, no,” head coach Jong Uichico joshed with reporters post-game, referring to their towering teen. UE was up, 61-50, early in the final frame until Uichico sent Sotto and Vince Tolentino back into the game. The two did nothing but stifle the Red Warriors as Sotto protected the paint while Tolentino clamped down on Pasaol. In all, the Gilas cadets only allowed four points in the pivotal period. That, coupled with their scoring burst capped off by short stabs from Rivero and GDL, was more than enough to hike their standing to 2-5. While he was scoreless in the fourth, Pasaol still topped the scoring column for now 1-2 UE with 22 points to go along with seven rebounds. In a heavyweight bout between UAAP powerhouses, Far Eastern University topped Adamson University, 75-64. Prince Orizu showed the way for the Tamaraws with 12 points and he was backstopped by Arvin Tolentino and Barkley Ebona who scored eight points each..  FEU improved to 4-1 with the win while also dealing the first defeat in three games to the Soaring Falcons. Sean Manganti paced Adamson with 20 points. Papi Sarr also had 13 markers to his name. Meanwhile, College of St. Benilde kept its slate spotless after powering through University of Sto. Tomas, 99-87. Clement Leutcheu had 22 points and 15 rebounds while Edward Dixon contributed his own 16 markers in the Blazers’ fifth win in a row to begin the tournament. UST dropped to 1-5 with the loss. Kenenth Zamora and Zachy Huang topped the scoring column for them with 22 and 21 points, respectively.

Archers, Blazers stay unscathed

San Beda dismantles Gilas Cadets in 21-point blowout

San Beda University ripped apart a disorganized Gilas Cadets side with a punishing 91-70 blowout win Sunday to bounce back from a previous setback in Group A of the 12th FilOil Flying V Preseason Cup at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Red Lions bared their teeth right from the get-go to bury the Asian Games-bound national team early and cruised to their second win in three outings. “My boys played today. I challenged them today that the character of the team will be tested, on how we will comeback after that loss against Ateneo,” said San Beda coach Boyet Fernandez, whose wards played their last game before flying to Miami, Florida next week for their US training. James Canlas led the Red Lions, who will back in the tournament on June 1 against University of the Philippines, with 16 points while Jeramer Cabanag had 15. Donald Tankoua finished with a double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds while Javee Mocon had eight markers and 10 boards for San Beda.          The Red Lions ballooned their lead to 78-47 off a fastbreak layup from Calvin Oftana with 6:28 left in the game. Gilas tried to mount a rally that came a little too late, bringing their deficit down to 80-62 with 4:01 left off a Ricci Rivero slam dunk. But San Beda answered with a couple of baskets to quell the run and walk away with a morale-boosting win. National University Bullpup Carl Tamayo spearheaded the Gilas Cadets with 13 points while Kobe Paras and JJ Alejandro chipped in with 11 markers each.   Box scores: San Beda (91) – Canlas 16, Cabanag 15, Tankoua 13, Mocon 8, Soberano 8, Oftana 7, Carino 5, Tongco 5, Presbitero 4, Eugene 4, Abuda 2, Cuntapay 2, Mocon Ju 2, Bahio 0, Burri 0, Abadeza 0.

Filoil Pre-season Cup: Ateneo holds off San Beda in battle of collegiate champs

UAAP champion Ateneo Blue Eagles survived a late run by NCAA titleholders San Beda Red Lions, 69-68 to remain unscathed in the 12th Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.  The Blue Eagles were up five points with 15.8 ticks remaining, 69-64, before AC Soberano launched and swished a corner triple which cut the lead to two, 67-69. Ateneo then turned the ball over, as San Beda fed the rock in the hands of their shooter Soberano, drove to the basket and got fouled inside with 10.2 left. However, Soberano missed the game-tying free throw, but the boys fro  Mendiola were able to get the ball back. Red Lion James Canlas got trapped in the corner, but passed it to the open Jayvee Mocon for the one-handed push shot, but missed it.  NCAA Season 93 Finals MVP Donald Tankoua got the rebound, but was not able to hit inside as Ateneo earns their second win in as many tries. San Beda meanwhile fell to an even 1-1 slate.  Ateneo head coach Tab Baldwin clearly was not satisfied with the UAAP champion's effort, as they were sloppy throughout the contest, turning the ball over 20 times. "Well, it's only two games in but I'm kind of disappointed. Again, we are not worried about wins but our composure was poor. I think we reacted too slowly. San Beda was prepared for us and I understand that because their season is about to begin," the former Gilas Pilipinas head coach said after the game. Baldwin also ripped through his team's lackadaisical approach in the first quarter, ending up tied with their opponents at 11-apiece at the conclusion of the first ten minutes. "We played selfish in the first quarter. I think we were affected by the TV cameras. Cameras are good but we didn't do well. I'm very disappointed right now." Isaac Go was the highest scorer for Ateneo with 14 points, while new import Angelo Kouame tallied 12 points and 12 rebounds. Thirdy Ravena meanwhile recorded nine markers and 10 caroms.  Mocon led San Beda's offense with 17 points, and six rebounds, while Tankoua added 13 markers and 13 boards.  In the first game of the day, the LPU Pirates notched their first win in Group B, as they thrashed the JRU Heavy Bombers, 90-69. Four Pirates finished in double-figures, with Casper Pericas leading the way with 16 markers. Yancy Remulla tallied 15. Jarvy Ramos paced the Heavy Bombers with 12 points. In the second game, Arellano, also of Group B, got their first win at the expense of the San Sebastian Stags, 68-61.  Michael Canete scored 12 points in 31 minutes of action, while Levi Dela Cruz added 9 markers. Arjan Dela Cruz topscored for the Stags with 17 points.   THE SCORES: 1st Game: LPU (90) -- Pericas 16, Remulla 15, Pretta 11, Guinto 11, Mahinay 8, Liwag 8, Ibanes 7, Garing 6, Salo 6, Barbero 3.

Gilas cadets no match for UAAP champion Blue Eagles

Matched up against the Gilas cadets in the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup, Ateneo de Manila University just played the same sort of basketball that won them the UAAP championship. Thirdy Ravena showed the way anew, but it was a total team effort for the Blue Eagles that overwhelmed the Kobe Paras and Ricci Rivero-led Philippine national team, 75-69, on Saturday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Ravena wound up with 16 points, five rebounds, five assists, and three steals while Adrian Wong chipped in 13 markers in his first big game since his ACL injury. It was also Ravena’s thunderous throwdown that detonated the 13-4 blast that blew up a tight 56-52 tiff and turned into a 69-54 advantage in favor of the UAAP champions in the final frame. “We had a good spurt in the fourth quarter. Most of the game, though, I thought our defense had some passion to it,” head coach Tab Baldwin said. They would not look back from there and marched forward to a big-time win to open the preseason. As always, Baldwin got contributions from anywhere and everywhere as Nieto twins Mike and Matt combined for 19 points and five rebounds while big men Isaac Go and Angelo Kouame merged for 12 markers and 24 boards. Still, the mentor they can do far better. As he put it, “Actually, I’m not too impressed. We’re not trying to be anything more than a shadow of what we hope to become.” For the Gilas cadets, Ricci Rivero topped the scoring column with 17 points to go along with seven rebounds and four assists. Paras had 13 markers, three boards, and three dimes in his first big game back home.

Yup, Ateneo is still the Ateneo that won it all in the UAAP

Ateneo de Manila University has remained mostly intact from the time it claimed the championship in the UAAP 80 Men’s Basketball Tournament. And now in the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup, that continuity was evident. Even Ricci Rivero had to say so. “Actually, wala namang nagbago sa kanila,” he told reporters after he and the Gilas cadets fell to the Blue Eagles on Saturday. Indeed, Thirdy Ravena was showing the way yet again with 16 points, five rebounds, five assists, and three steals, but still had backup right there with him. That recipe for success the used to take down the Gilas cadets was the very same recipe for success they used to take down De La Salle University, then Rivero’s team, in last year’s UAAP Finals. Still, true to form, Ateneo head coach Tab Baldwin said they can do far better. As he put it, “Actually, I’m not too impressed. We’re not trying to be anything more than a shadow of what we hope to become.” Baldwin then went on to point out that they didn’t take care of the ball all that well with 23 turnovers. “We made many mistakes, 14 turnovers in the first half, and we’re not yet ready to play as a team. We have no chemistry right now,” he shared. He then continued, “We want the skill and the physicality. I think the decision-making and cohesion will come, but it’s not there yet.” Fortunately for the Blue Eagles, they still have the rest of the Filoil Preseason to get there. “We’re only thinking about individual development right now. I think every time you get good competition, it tests what you’ve been working on,” the champion coach said. Baldwin and his boys next face NCAA champion San Beda University on Friday. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Ateneo surprises Gilas cadets in Filoil

Playing more as a team, Ateneo gave the fancied Gilas cadets an early wakeup call, 75-69, at the start of the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup Saturday night at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Thirdy Ravena scored 16 points, including a dunk off a steal on Kobe Paras that sparked a fourth quarter run by the Blue Eagles. Ateneo led by as much as 15, 69-54, with less than five minutes left against a team comprised of the country's best young talents, but Eagles coach Tab Baldwin downplayed the victory. "I'm not too impressed. I thought we just went out and play," Baldwin told reporters. "We had a good spurt in the fourth. I thought our defense for the most of the game, there wa...Keep on reading: Ateneo surprises Gilas cadets in Filoil.....»»

Ateneo still spotless after shutting down MVP leader Cansino

STANDINGS Ateneo 8-0 NU 6-2 UST 5-3 FEU-Diliman 4-4 Adamson 3-4 DLSZ 2-5 UPIS 1-6 UE 1-6 On Saturday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, Ateneo de Manila High School showed that second, third, and fourth combined is better than first all by himself. Kai Sotto, SJ Belangel, and Dave Ildefonso all together to power Ateneo de Manila High School right through MVP frontrunner CJ Cansino and University of Sto. Tomas, 78-54. Sotto is second, Belangel is third, and Ildefonso is fourth to first-place Cansino in the MVP leaderboard of the UAAP 80 Juniors Basketball Tournament. Together, however, they again proved to be too much for one of the other contenders in the tournament. “Kahit ganito, marami pa rin kaming kailangang ayusin. We still have lots to improve,” head coach Joe Silva said. Ildefonso had 20 points, seven assists, and three assists; Belangel had 13 points, six assists, and six rebounds; and Sotto had 11 points, 12 rebounds, and five blocks to make sure Ateneo remained undefeated through eight games. The Tiger Cubs actually got off to a strong start and owned an eight-point lead in the early going before the league-leaders settled down. Just trailing by one late in the second quarter, Belangel then orchestrated a 9-0 run that put the Blue Eaglets on top, 35-27, at the half. They would only keep their foot on the gas pedal from there and in all, crushed their opponents, 65-36, in the last three quarters. The offense took some time to get going, but the defense was on-point from the get-go as the kids from Katipunan frustrated Cansino to only 16 points, seven coming when the game was already over, in 6-of-20 shooting along with three turnovers. “Actually, we were expecing a shaky start sa offense kaya second quarter, we locked it down,” Silva said. He then continued, “The boys were proud enough to lock Cansino down.” With another convincing victory, they have now defeated UST twice, Far Eastern University-Diliman once, and Nazareth School of National University once all by double-digits. On the other hand, the Tiger Cubs dropped to third in the standings now at 5-3. With the MVP frontrunner struggling, nobody else stepped up as Vince Dolendo was the only other one in double-digits with 10 points BOX SCORES ATENEO 78 – Ildefonso 20, Belangel 13, Credo 12, Manuel 11, Sotto 11, Jaymalin 3, Chiu 2, Escalona 2, Tandeo 2, Diaz 2, David 0, Lopa 0, Gusi 0, Ong 0 UST 54 – Canaino 16, Dolendo 10, Benzonan 9, Villapando 8, Lina 6, Narvasa 3, Baquial 2, Anunciacion 0, Dea Cruz 0, Palencia 0, Esplana 0, Manabat 0 QUARTER SCORES: 13-18, 35-27, 58-41, 78-54 —- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Belangel does it all against Bullpups as Blue Eaglets remain unscathed

Ateneo de Manila High School remains the lone unbeaten team in the UAAP 80 Men’s Basketball Tournament. And following a 64-49 dismantling of Nazareth School of National University on Saturday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, the Blue Eaglets now have convincing victories versus all other contenders. SJ Belangel spearheaded the Katipunan blitz to begin the game which had them racing to a 19-5 edge after the first quarter. It was also the graduating guard’s back-to-back assists to Angelo David and then to Jason Credo that capped off a 7-0 burst that built up the biggest lead of the game for Ateneo, 36-13, late in the second quarter. By halftime, the Blue Eaglets were still ahead thanks to Belangel’s 13 points, six assists, three steals, and two rebounds as well as the rim protection of Kai Sotto who had six blocks and five boards. With the 7-foot-1 Sotto patrolling the paint, Rhayyan Amsali, Terrence Fortea, and Paul Manalang could not get going and combined for 0-of-13 shooting. Still, the Bullpups didn’t quit and neared to 48-58 inside the last four minutes only to see two dishes from the Ateneo captain again lead to two baskets. That kept Belangel – who wound up with 14 points, eight assists, seven rebounds, and four steals – and company ahead for good and also kept their perfect record intact after six games. “We’re talking it one game at a time. We want to stay focused,” head coach Joe Silva said Dave Ildefonso also added a 12-point, 12-rebound double-double while Sotto chipped in 12 rebounds and eight blocks on top of six points. Without a doubt, though, it was defense that won the game for the Blue Eaglets as they stymied their opponents into missing 59 of their 78 attempts. “Again, it’s all about defense. Dun talaga kami naka-focus this year,” Silva sais. This latest win adds erstwhile undefeated NU to Ateneo’s list of fallen contenders that already included Far Eastern University-Diliman and University of Sto. Tomas. No Bullpup was in double-digits as they suffered their first setback. In the first game, UST got for itself a mighty rebound, throttling De La Salle Zobel, 83-72. CJ Cansino kept his double-double-streak in the season going with 23 points, 15 rebounds, and four assists in this one. Kobe Palencia also had 16 markers, five boards, and five dimes to help the Tiger Cubs improve to 4-2. The Junior Archers had their two-game win run get snapped as they drop to 2-4. RC Calimag showed the way for them with 14 points. Defending champion FEU-Diliman also got a bounce back win by pounding on University of the Philippines Integrated School, 90-63. L-Jay Gonzales had 15 points, seven rebounds, five assists, and four steals in just 20 minutes to show the Baby Tamaraws the way to 3-3. RJ Abarrientos contributed 12 markers, nine dimes, and six boards of his own. Matt Santiago’s career-high 23 points, on the other hand, were all for naught as the Junior Maroons dropped to 1-5.
