Proud ako na girlfriend ako ni Bolick -- Aby Marano

Proud ako na girlfriend niya. A simple statement that sums up all the feelings of Aby Marano on bae Robert Bolick after he led the San Beda Red Lions to their second straight title, Thursday night in the 93rd NCAA seniors basketball competition. The former De La Salle University women’s volleyball standout wasn’t at the Big Dome when Bolick unleashed his ‘beast mode’ performance in the final minutes of Game 2 of the best-of-three championship series against Lyceum of the Philippines University. Marano had a game with F2 Logistics in the 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix when the Red Lions captured their 21st title overall with a 92-82 win to finish off the Pirates. “Kinakabahan nga ako kanina kasi gusto ko talaga panoorin,” she said. “Nagtatanong-tanong ako kanina tapos may random guy na lumipat sa akin tas binalita na champion na nga daw.” “Parang nawala 'yung kaba ko, naging mas light 'yung feeling ko noong game,” added Marano, who herself had a great game against Generika-Ayala. Inspired by Bolick’s heroics, Tyang Aby finished with six markers to help the unbeaten Cargo Movers sweep the Lifesavers, 25-21, 25-17, 25-17.  Though she was not there to cheer for Bolick, Marano, who was able to watch the series opener last Friday, never doubted her long-time boyfriend’s capabilities and knew that he’ll be able to deliver for the SBC. “Last year, ganoon din 'yung nangyari sa amin - may game din ako tapos di ko napanood 'yung Finals niya,” she said. “Naging positive lang kami. Whether I'm there or not, tiwala na lang na maglalaro siya nang mabuti.” After the game, Bolick thanked Marano for pushing and inspiring him to achieve his goal of giving the Red Lions another crown.   Marano was just proud to see Bolick, who transferred from De La Salle University to SBC three years ago, reap the rewards of his hard work. “Ang sarap-sarap sa pakiramdam kasi nga nasubaybayan ko 'yung struggles niya dati,” said Marano. “Every day na magkasama kami, kita mong nandoon 'yung depression. “ “Ngayon, makikita mo na bumalik talaga lahat ng confidence niya and kung sino talaga siya as a basketball player,” added Marano. “Napakasarap sa feeling.” And how would she describe her feeling as a girlfriend of an NCAA champion?  Marano had a straightforward answer. “Masasabi ko lang na sobrang proud ako na girlfriend ako ni Bolick kasi nakikita ko talaga 'yung sarili ko sa kanya,” she said. BMDC (beast mode don’t care) naman din talaga siya magalaro.”     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles   .....»»

Lady Realtors end slump, whip Tigresses in three sets

Games Thursday: (Filoil Flying V Centre) 4:15 p.m. – Cocolife vs Iriga City 7:00 p.m. – Generika-Ayala vs F2 Logistics   Sta.

Rialen Sante added nine points while Rebecca Rivera tallied 20 excellent sets for SLR.     Still, Yee was from satisfied with their win against the collegiate squad.  “Madami pa rin kaming errors and lapses then, hindi pa rin nagko-connect ang setter at middle hitters natin,” he said pointing at their 23 errors. “Buti nalang nandiyan ‘yung ibang imports natin na kayang-kaya ‘yung outside hits.” “Ang hirap noon kapag natalo pa kami. So, kahit papaano may konting pressure doon. We needed a win so we got a win,” he added. “Ito ang mga baby steps namin so we’ll take it.” Dimdim Pacres scored nine points while Carla Sandoval and Caitlyn Viray tallied eight markers each for the Golden Tigresses, who remained listless in three outings......»»

Cargo Movers add more woes to reeling Lady Realtors

Games Thursday: (FilOil Flying V Centre) 4:15 p.m. –- Iriga City vs. Generika-Ayala 7:00 p.m. –- UST vs. Petron   F2 Logistics recovered from a four-point deficit late in the third set to complete a 25-16, 25-23, 25-23 sweep of listless Sta. Lucia Tuesday for the Cargo Movers’ second straight win in the 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. American import Kennedy Bryan posted 13 points, all from attacks, while Venezuelan reinforcement unleashed 12 markers anchored on 10 attacks as F2 Logistics scored back-to-back victories after a four-set romp of erstwhile unbeaten Petron Saturday in Bacolod City. “Itong Sta. Lucia hindi madaling kalaban. Siguro naunahan lang namin or matter of breaks lang siguro,” said F2 Logistics coach Ramil De Jesus. “Hindi biro ‘pag nasa harap mo na ‘yung mga imports then three imports sila actually four pa nga andyan pa ‘yung (Mar-Jana) Phillips. So hindi madaling kalaban, hindi mo pwedeng biru biruin so talagang disiplina dapat pagdating sa loob ng court.” The Cargo Movers controlled the opening set but needed to mount a rally from 20-22 down in the closing stretch of the second frame. F2 Logistics again fell behind 18-22 in the third set before sparking a closing 7-1 rally. Perez tied the frame at 22 after a kill block on Rialen Sante followed by an attack error by Lady Realtors’ Ukranian import Bohdana Anisova that gave the Cargo Movers a one-point lead. Desiree Cheng sent his service short in the next play but Canadian Marisa Field smashed his serve straight to the net as F2 Logistics took match point, 24-23. Kim Dy blocked Anisova to seal the win in the 88-minute duel.  Anisova scored 14 points while Pam Lastimosa and Field combined for 15 markers for the Lady Realtors.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Alam ko rin na hindi pa ako healthy -- Galang on skipping F2 Logistics campaign

Games on Saturday: (University of St. La Salle, Bacolod) 2:00 p.m. –- Generika-Ayala vs Foton 4:00 p.m. –- Cocolife vs Cignal 6:00 p.m. –- F2 Logistics vs Petron   BACOLOD CITY -- Ara Galang will sit out F2 Logistics’ campaign in the 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix. Talking to fans who flocked the PSL’s meet-and-greet event at SM Bacolod here Friday, the former De La Salle University standout revealed that she will need some time to rest and recover from a maintenance procedure done on her previously injured knee.          “Personally, siyempre medyo sad ako pero OK lang din naman sa akin kasi alam ko naman ‘yung kondisyon ko,” said Galang, who helped the Cargo Movers capture the 2016 PSL All-Filipino Conference crown and to a runner-up in the same tournament this season.    Galang is not in the official lineup of F2 Logistics but still joined teammates Aby Marano, Dawn Macandili, Cha Cruz and Kim Kianna Dy to promote the league’s triple-bill playdate set on Saturday at University of St. La Salle-Bacolod. Representatives of eight teams not including guest team University of Sto. Tomas attended the event and were welcomed by Bacolod City congressman Greg Gasataya.  The UAAP Season 75 Most Valuable Player sustained an ACL, MCL tear and big bone bruise on her left knee during the 77th UAAP semifinals match against National University back in 2015. She came back the following year to lead DLSU in snapping archrival Ateneo de Manila University’s back-to-back reign.       “Alam ko rin na hindi pa ako healthy,” who needed to undergo a procedure to drain fluid on her knee. “Pero alam ko na nandiyan naman ang mga teammates ko, kaya naman nila maglaro.” Despite being on the sideline for this tournament, Galang said that she’s just happy to help the team on some other way. “Happy pa rin naman ako na part pa rin ako ng team at PSL,” said Galang. The Cargo Movers will make their debut against unbeaten Petron at 6:00 p.m. Cocolife and Cignal HD will meet at 4:00 p.m. after the curtain-raiser between two-time champion Foton and Generika-Ayala in the curtain-raiser at 2:00 p.m.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Wrestling legend ‘Superfly’s’ granddaughter making Snuka name proud in vball

It’s just Penina Snuka’s first time in the Philippines, but she has been treated like she has been here for long. “Everyone has been so nice and accommodating, but it’s funny because everybody thinks I’m Filipino,” she told reporters. “I’ve had a lot of people just come up to me and just start speaking in your language. It’s such a beautiful language, but I’m looking at them with wide eyes and say, ‘I’m not from here.’” Of course, the Generika-Ayala reinforcement is not a Filipina. She is an American of Samoan descent who played setter for the University of Arizona. While she may not be a Filipina, Snuka still stands out – if you are familiar with her storied surname. “My last name is Snuka and I come from a big wrestling family starting with my grandfather and then my father,” she shared. “I have an auntie and an uncle who are wrestling right now. And of course, also, my uncle is ‘The Rock.’” Penina’s grandfather is the late Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka who was a wrestling star in the ‘80s and ‘90s before being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Her father is Sim Snuka who was a former WWE Tag Team Champion. Current WWE superstars Roman Reigns and Tamina are her uncle and aunt, respectively. And then, there’s Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson who is also her uncle. Indeed, the now 22-year-old comes from a big wrestling family. For her, however, wrestling was never an option. “(Me and my brothers and sisters), as kids, we weren’t really into wrestling. We did a lot of sports – we did basketball, my brothers did (American) football, and I just kind of got into volleyball,” she said. She then continued, “Ever since I got into volleyball in sixth grade, I always loved it. I never wanted to do anything else but volleyball. Volleyball is my whole life.” And so, after a stellar career as in the University of Arizona where she was hailed as Pac-12 Setter of the Year in 2016, Snuka took the opportunity to showcase her skills in a country that is only falling more and more in love with the sport. “(Ayala-Generika) was the first to offer me. I talked to my parents about it and I did a little research, I really got to know them and the Philippines,” she said. She then continued, “I really felt this was a good place. I really felt blessed to be here.” Don’t make the mistake of thinking, however, that she has forgotten that she’s a Snuka – granddaughter and niece to wrestling legends. “I feel really honored that I come from this family. I’m someone who’s very close to my family so leaving them was kinda hard, but knowing that I’m taking that name with me out here, hopefully, I can make a good name for them,” she expressed. In that case, we all better get ready for another Snuka to make a “Superfly Splash.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
