Baby Tamaraws send out statement, stomp on Bullpups

strong>TEAM STANDINGS /strong> br /> Adamson 8-1 br /> FEU-Diliman 8-2 br /> NU 8-2 br /> Ateneo 5-4 br /> UPIS 3-6 br /> DLSZ 3-7 br /> UST 2-7 br /> UE 1-9 Don’t look now, but coming out of the shadows in the UAAP 79 Juniors Basketball Tournament is Far Eastern University-Diliman. A week after dealing the first defeat of erstwhile Adamson High School, the Baby Tamaraws downed defending champion Nazareth School of National University. Xyrus Torres scored 20 points and the FEU-Diliman defense suffocated the Bullpups to ghastly 27 percent shooting from the field for a 61-46 decision on Saturday at the San Juan Arena. Torres caught fire from the get-go and had eight points to match NU’s entire first quarter output. In all, the Baby Tams dug a 25-8 hole for their opponents after only the opening salvo. The defending champions would be unable to recover as FEU-Diliman dared John Lloyd Clemente to beat them by his lonesome and the versatile forward fell way short in doing so. The wire-to-wire win is the Baby Tamaraws’ fourth in a row and eighth overall in 10 games, charging them onto a share of second with their vanquished foes. They may even find themselves with a share of first depending on the Baby Falcons’ result later. The Bullpups slipped out of first-place and onto an 8-2 standing. Clemente was their lone player in double-digits with 14 points. Meanwhile, De La Salle Zobel finally barged back onto the win column after shooting down University of the East, 81-59. Five Junior Archers scored in double-digits as they improved to 3-7. The loss dropped the Junior Warriors to 1-9.

Bullpups send statement at Baby Tams expense, sweep UAAP 82 elims

STANDINGS Bullpups 14-0 (Finals) Baby Tamaraws 12-2 (twice-to-beat) Blue Eaglets 8-6 (semifinals) Baby Falcons 8-6 (semifinals) Tiger Cubs 7-7 Jr. Warriors 3-11 Jr. Archers 3-11 Jr. Maroons 1-13 Nazareth School of National University broke no sweat facing its toughest test in the UAAP 82 Boys Basketball Tournament, having all the answers against second-running Far Eastern University-Diliman for an 80-73 win, Wednesday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Needing just one more win to sweep the elimination round, the Bullpups took control right from tip-off and never let it go. Terrence Fortea was online all game long and wound up with 17 points while Reyland Torres was the workhorse as always and had for himself 16 markers, nine rebounds, and three assists. The defending champions dominated the first three quarters and were up 71-40 entering the final frame. The Baby Tamaraws kept coming, however, and battled back to within six, 71-77, inside the last three minutes. "Medyo may lapses nung fourth quarter. We had 27 turnovers and gust ko nga malaman ilan dun yung sa fourth," head coach Goldwin Monteverde said. National U just went back to basics, however, as all five players on the floor touched the ball before Ernest Felicilda hit a booming triple that silenced the green and gold. They had no more makes from that point, but their defense stood strong and ultimately raised their record to a perfect 14-0 at the end of elims. "It's an accomplishment, siyempre, pero yung importante pa rin naman, yung dulo. We have to finish what we started," coach Gold said of the accomplishment they just missed on in their title run a year ago. With that, the Bullpups automatically advance into the Finals where they will await the ultimate winner in the ensuing stepladder playoffs. FEU-Diliman will still have a twice-to-beat advantage in the next round and will first await the victor in the knockout bout between third-seed Ateneo de Manila High School and fourth-seed Adamson High School a week from now. Patrick Sleat fronted their effort in this one with 17 points, five rebounds, and four assists as top gun Penny Estacio was held in check for only 12 markers in 4-of-14 shooting. It also didn't help the Baby Tams that Cholo Anonuevo left the game in the first half due to an apparent leg injury.

UAAP 82: NU preserves unbeaten card in girls’ beach volleyball

Nazareth School of National University bested University of Santo Tomas, 21-19, 22-20, in a duel of undefeated teams in the girls' division of the UAAP Season 82 high school beach volleyball tournament Saturday at the Sands SM by the Bay. The Lady Bullpups were trailing, 18-19, late in the second frame when Epa scored two straight kills to take the lead. Epa and Chantal Rodriguez then stayed composed against the Junior Tigresses pair of Vanessa Bangayan and Jullana Carreon to steer the Bustillos-based squad to a perfect 3-0 card. UST lost for the first time in four matches to slip in second place. De La Salle-Zobel moved up to third at 2-1, as Irah Jaboneta and Gerzel Petallo overcame a slow second set start to beat Ateneo's Celina Vergeire and Ady Lasala, 21-7, 21-17, . In the lone girls' match that went the distance, Adamson University's Mary Grace Borromeo and Ayesha Juegos rallied from a set down to beat Far Eastern University-Diliman's Nikka Medina and Alexandra Jungco, 17-21, 21-18, 15-10, for a 2-2 card in fourth place. FEU suffered its second loss in three matches to tie idle University of the East in fifth spot, while Ateneo remained winless in four games. In the Boys' Division, the Tiger Cubs won two matches to clinch the first Final Four berth. UST's Jay Rack dela Noche and Alexander Iraya made quick work of De La Salle-Zobel's Andrei Espejo and Leinuel Crisostomo, 21-13, 21-19, and returned in the afternoon with a 21-12, 17-21, 15-12 victory over NSNU's Jann Mark Pijo and Reymark Reyes for a 5-0 record. FEU-Diliman moved closer in securing a place in the semis as Jerold Talisayan and Carl Cabatac defeated UP Integrated School's Brett Borja and Miguel Castro, 21-14, 21-9, and Adamson University's Jefferson Marapoc and Evander Novillo, 22-20, 21-14. The Baby Tamaraws rose to 4-1. UE seized solo third at 3-2 as Francis Babon and JM Apolinario outlasted Adamson University's Marapoc and Novillo, 21-15, 16-21, 15-12, and Ateneo's Mikka Mendoza and Anjo Almadro, 21-6, 21-15. Almadro substituted Giulian San Juan in the first set. Espejo and Crisostomo, who replaced John Lituania earlier in the day, were able to gain a split following a 21-3, 21-7 romp of the Junior Maroons. The Junior Green Spikers forced a four-way tie with the Bullpups, the Blue Eaglets and the Baby Falcons in fourth spot at 2-3. In the other morning match, NSNU downed Ateneo, 21-10, 21-15......»»

WINLESS NO MORE: Torculas saves the day; UPIS stops 19-game losing slide

STANDINGS Bullpups 13-0 (twice-to-beat) Baby Tamaraws 12-1 (twice-to-beat) Blue Eaglets 8-6 (semifinals) Baby Falcons 8-6 (semifinals) Tiger Cubs 7-7 Jr. Warriors 3-11 Jr. Archers 3-11 Jr. Maroons 1-13 There will be no winless season in the UAAP 82 Boys Basketball Tournament as the University of the Philippines Integrated School thwarted University of the East’s plot to keep it out of the win column. Jordi Gomez de Liano caught fire anew while Sean Torculas came to the rescue in the endgame as the Jr. Maroons weathered the storm brought by the Jr. Warriors, 86-81, Wednesday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Jordi GDL topped the scoring column with 21 points and was at the forefront of an attack that buried their opponents under a barrage of threes in the first half. State U totaled 11 triples in the first two quarters where it mounted a lead of as much as 34. Come the final frame, however, they let their foot off the gas pedal quite a bit and saw UE come as close as one, 81-82, with under two minutes left. It was at that point, however, that with the shot clock winding down, Ray Allen Torres set up Torculas for a trey at the top of the key. The do-it-all weapon wasted no time taking and making the shot that ultimately broke the back of the Jr. Warriors. In the end, Torculas had 14 points, 15 rebounds, seven blocks, and three assists to his name while Torres also added 12 markers, five boards, and three dimes. Collin Dimaculantan then chipped in 16 points, seven rebounds, and five assists to help UPIS just barely dodge the ax of a winless season. Even more, they won for the first time since the second round of last year - having dropped 19 games in between wins. On the other hand, UE closes its campaign at 3-11 even after a furious fightback of a 33-9 final frame.

The defending champions shoot for a sweep of the elimination round starting at 3:00 p.m. and if they do so, they will trigger stepladder playoffs for the other playoff teams. Of course, the Baby Tamaraws have other plans and want nothing more than the usual Final Four to ensue. Even more, a win of 16 points or more actually catapults them onto the top-seed. The other games of the day also have big-time implications. At 9:00 a.m., Adamson High School is out to clinch the last playoff berth, but standing in its way is streaking Ateneo de Manila High School. Then at 11:00 a.m., University of Sto. Tomas fights for dear life against De La Salle Zobel.

UAAP 82: FEU remains atop High School Boys Football standings

Jacob Garciano made sure that defending, nine-time champion Far Eastern University salvaged a draw against University of Santo Tomas in the UAAP Season 82 High School Boys' Football Tournament, Sunday at Rizal Memorial Football Stadium. Playing most of the match in the Junior Golden Booters' half, the Baby Tamaraws eventually got a chance after a handball infraction was called on UST at the 71st minute. Garciano took time and calmly drilled the ball past Carl Mesina for the equalizer. "Actually, Jacob started as the defensive midfielder but in the second half he was moved up to striker. He can make the attempts, we just needed to that desire to score more," said FEU-D head coach Park Bobae about Garciano. The draw put FEU still at the top of the table with 11 points, but just a solitary point ahead of National University-Nazareth School who is now in second place after their earlier win against Ateneo High School. Kiann Partosa capitalized on a defensive lapse by the Baby Tamaraws during the waning seconds of the first half for the opening goal. This, despite the Tamaraws having most of the possession. "I think the fact that our senior players Cholo Bugas, Josh Abundio, and others also, are our leaders. There was no leader today, so our young players felt a little bit pressured," lamented Park. UST is still not yet out of the Finals picture despite having just five points and staying in fifth place. Earlier, the Bullpups made strides for a second straight Finals appearance bid, dragging the Blue Eaglets, 2-1. TJ Salgado scored eight minutes into the second period to secure NSNU's second straight victory that catapulted them to second place, breaking a tie with Ateneo. The latter slid to third place still at seven points. John Kenneth Garcia put the Bullpups ahead with a 29th-minute strike before Luard Abaa leveled the match just two minutes after that Garcia goal. FEU-D and NU-NS will battle for the lead on Wednesday, February 5 at 1:30 p.m. UST will try to get another win when they face De La Salle Zobel later that day at 4 p.m.  .....»»

Blue Eaglets sizzle in 37-0 run to seize UAAP 82 playoff berth

STANDINGS Bullpups 13-0 Baby Tamaraws 12-1 Blue Eaglets 8-5 Baby Falcons 7-6 Tiger Cubs 6-7 Jr. Archers 3-10 Jr. Warriors 3-10 Jr. Maroons 0-13 De La Salle Zobel landed the first blows in its rivalry game, Sunday in the middle of the Filoil Flying V Centre, but it was Ateneo de Manila High School that landed the decisive knockout. Unleashing a monstrous 37-0 run bridging the first and second quarters, the Blue Eaglets dominated their archrival Green Archers for a convincing 79-52 victory that assures them of at least a playoff for a place in the next round of the UAAP 82 Boys Basketball Tournament. The kids from Katipunan actually fell victim to a scorching start by the boys from Alabang as the latter went up, 14-3, after three and a half minutes of play. It was at that point, however, that Ateneo flipped the script and fired 37 unanswered points to erase the double-digit and erect a large lead at 40-14, all of a sudden. They wouldn’t look back all the way to stretching their streak to four straight. Now at 8-5, the Blue Eaglets will play one more game, at the very least, after the elimination round no matter what happens in their matchup opposite Adamson High School on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Far Eastern University-Diliman gave itself a shot at the top-seed after getting the better of very game University of Sto. Tomas, 81-73. Cholo Anonuevo posted a 13-point, 11-rebound double-double, all while keying the final frame rush that boosted the Baby Tamaraws past the Tiger Cubs once and for all. He was joined there by Penny Estacio who wound up with 19 points on top of six rebounds, five steals, and two assists as well as Patrick Sleat who totaled 13 markers and eight boards of his own. Turning up the heat in the endgame, FEU-Diliman took care of business for its 12th win in a row following a season-opening loss. They still have a shot at the top-seed if, and only if, they find a way to take down undefeated defending champion Nazareth School of National University by 16 points or more in the last game of eliminations on Wednesday. The two teams had met in the very first game day of the season and the Bullpups won that one, 64-49. If a repeat happens, the defending champions automatically advance into the Finals and trigger stepladder playoffs with the Baby Tams positioned at the second-seed and powered with a twice-to-beat advantage. For UST, Bismarck Lina kept up the heat with 25 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, and two steals while Jacob Cortez his 15 markers and 11 boards to his name. All of that wasn't enough, however, to prevent their second straight setback and seventh overall in 13 games. They now need to win their last assignment opposite DLSZ just to have a chance at the next round......»»

Blue Eaglets get payback on Jr. Warriors, grab solo third in UAAP 82

STANDINGS Bullpups 12-0 (twice-to-beat) Baby Tamaraws 11-1 (twice-to-beat) Blue Eaglets 7-5 Tiger Cubs 6-6 Baby Falcons 6-6 Jr. Archers 3-9 Jr. Warriors 3-9 Jr. Maroons 0-12 Ateneo de Manila High School avenged its sorry loss back in the first round of the UAAP 82 Boys Basketball Tournament with a 24-point demolition job of University of the East, 78-54, Wednesday at Blue Eagle Gym in Katipunan, Quezon City. Jynno Ladimo busted out from out of nowhere with a 21-point, 10-rebound double-double in the Blue Eaglets’ third consecutive victory and seventh overall in 12 games. Lebron Lopez and Josh Lazaro also did damage with the former finishing with 13 points, four rebounds, two blocks, and two steals and the latter ending with 11 markers, 18 boards, three pilfers, and two rejections. Forthsky Padrigao was more than happy to just serve as Swiss army knife and wound up with eight points, four rebounds, four assists, and four steals. All of that was more than enough for Ateneo to exact revenge on the Jr. Warriors who had upset them in the first round. “Yun talaga yung naging mindset namin today - atonement. In the first round, we took UE lightly and lost,” head coach Reggie Varilla said. He then continued, “Ngayon, that shouldn’t happen anymore. In getting payback, Ateneo got ahead in the tight race for the last two playoff berths as it now stands at solo third at 7-5. That’s because Nazareth School of National University tamed University of Sto. Tomas, 77-66. Gerry Abadiano turned in his best game of the season with 18 points while twin towers Kevin Quiambao and Carl Tamayo imposed their will in the Bullpups' 12th win in as many games. With the loss, UST dropped down to a 6-6 standing. Sporting the same slate is Adamson High School which took care of business against winless University of the Philippines Integrated School, 81-70. John Erolon was on fire with 18 points, all coming from behind the arc, while Jake Figueroa was a force with an 11-marker, 13-board double-double. The Baby Falcons’ wire-to-wire placed them on even ground with the Tiger Cubs for the fourth spot. The last two playoff berths are still closely contested by Ateneo, UST, and Adamson with two game days to go. Far Eastern University-Diliman, meanwhile, remained in the running for the top-seed after goring De La Salle Zobel, 65-46. Jorick Bautista starred with an all-around 23-point, 13-rebound, five-steal, and four-assist performance as the Baby Tamaraws’ blasted off to a 20-8 beginning and never looked back. Cholo Anonuevo and Penny Estacio also added 10 points apiece in the green and gold’s 11th win in a row following a season-opening loss. The Jr. Archers were paced by Ivan Cudiamat who had 13 points. After falling to 3-9, the once proud program also fall out of contention for the third straight season. At 3-9 and already eliminated as well are the Jr. Warriors who were led by CJ Austria who had 16 points to his name. Still searching for their first win through 12 tries are the Jr. Maroons whose effort in this one was fronted by Ray Allen Torres and Sean Torculas with the former finishing with 28 points and 12 rebounds and the latter ending with 17 markers and 10 boards.

UAAP 82: National U still on pace for season sweep; Tiger Cubs still at third

STANDINGS Bullpups 10-0 Baby Tamaraws 9-1 Tiger Cubs 6-4 Blue Eaglets 5-5 Baby Falcons 4-6 Jr. Archers 3-7 Jr. Warriors 3-7 Jr. Maroons 0-10 With Kevin Quiambao remaining a force and Terrence Fortea rounding into form, Nazareth School of National University is still the standard in the UAAP 82 Boys Basketball Tournament. The Bullpups proved that anew, Wednesday at Filoil Flying V Centre, as they imposed their will on De La Salle Zobel for a resounding 100-76 rout. Quiambao found no match for him and powered through for a 21-point, 15-rebound double-double while Fortea kept his fire burning with 20 markers. Still, the defending champions found themselves getting challenged by the Jr. Archers and were only ahead by one at the half. Come the third quarter, however, they restored order and outscored their opponents, 26-10. National U only stepped harder on the pedal in the final frame en route to its 10th win in as many games. The Bullpups also got much welcome contributions for the other guys such as Reyland Torres who had 12 points, 10 rebounds, and three assists as well as Ernest Felicilda who had 15 markers, five dimes, and four boards. For DLSZ, Ivan Cudiamat topped the scoring column with 24 points, all from threes, while Kobe Dalisay also added 15 markers. Main man Kean Baclaan struggled, though, with just eight points in 3-of-18 shooting from the field to see his squad drop to 3-7. In the day's other game, University of Sto. Tomas kept rolling with a convincing 88-80 victory versus Adamson High School. Much of that was thanks to Bismarck Lina who showed he has indeed moved forward from his preseason knee injury with a 24-point, 10-rebound double-double. Jacob Cortez then contributed an all-around 19 points, six rebounds, four assists, and two steals in the Tiger Cubs' fourth consecutive victory and sixth overall inn 10 games. As they stretched their streak, the black and gold tightened their grip on third-place while also dealing the Baby Falcons their fourth loss in a row. John Erolon fronted the effort for Adamson with 20 points while Jake Figueroa also added an 18-point, 13-rebound double-double - all of which weren't enough to prevent their drop to the sixth spot at 4-6.

Fortea catches fire as Bullpups capture first playoff berth in UAAP 82

STANDINGS Bullpups 9-0 Baby Tamaraws 8-1 Tiger Cubs 5-4 Baby Falcons 4-5 Blue Eaglets 4-5 Jr. Archers 3-6 Jr. Warriors 3-6 Jr. Maroons 0-9 It was just a matter of time before Terrence Fortea got into his groove in the UAAP 82 Boys Basketball Tournament. That time came, Sunday at Filoil Flying V Centre, as Fortea scorched the nets for 25 points and shot Nazareth School of National University over very game Adamson High School, 94-79. The gunslinging guard got all but four of his output from beyond the arc to give the defending champions their ninth win in as many games and the first playoff berth in the tournament. "Si Terrence naman, kahit naging ganun yung first round, nandun pa rin yung trust namin," head coach Goldwin Monteverde said. It was also Fortea who fired two backbreaking bombs in the 12-2 run that re-increased National U’s lead from three points to 81-68 inside the last five minutes. He was flanked by Carl Tamayo and Reyland Torres in the timely response that repulsed the Baby Falcons who pulled to within three, 66-69, early in the final frame on the back of Jake Figueroa. Tamayo wound up with 18 points, seven rebounds, and two blocks while Torres had 15 markers, eight boards, two assists, and two steals of his own. "Alam naman naming lalaban ang Adamson, pero buti nung fourth, nakuha ng bigs namin yung rhythm nila," coach Gold said. Kevin Quiambao was also a force with 16 points, seven rebounds, four assists, and two steals to make sure the Bullpups overcame an all-around 16-point, nine-rebound, six-assist, and three-steal outing from MVP leader Figueroa. John Erolon also added 13 points, five steals, four assists, and two rebounds, but Adamson just fell short of matching their opponents' firepower to fall for the third time in a row and fifth time overall in nine games. Still not that far behind National U is Far Eastern University-Diliman which charged through Ateneo de Manila High School in the final frame for what eventually ended as a convincing 67-57 victory. Chiolo Anonuevo and Jorick Bautista came through for the Baby Tamaraws in their eighth consecutive victory following a season-opening loss. On the other hand, the Blue Eaglets dropped to 4-5 - tied with the Baby Falcons for the fourth spot. With those losses by Adamson and Ateneo, University of Sto. Tomas rose to solo third courtesy of an 87-63 rout of still winless University of the Philippines Integrated School. Bismarck Lina turned in his best game of the season with a 20-point, 11-rebound double-double while James Maliwat and Jacob Cortez chimed in 17 and 12 markers, respectively for the Tiger Cubs who improved to 5-4. In the day's other game, University of the East climbed up the leaderboard by jumping on De La Salle Zobel, 81-68. Vhoris Marasigan busted out with a dominant double-double of 21 points and 12 rebounds as the Jr. Warriors now stand on even ground with the Jr. Archers at 3-6......»»

UAAP 82 has surprise MVP leader in Baby Falcon rookie Figueroa

Adamson High School's do-it-all swingman John Figueroa is the surprise leader in the MVP race after the first round of the UAAP Season 82 High School Boys' Basketball Tournament. Figueroa, who is in Grade 11 and stands at 6-foot-2, tallied 68.86 statistical points (SPs) built on his norms of 12.14 points, 14.29 rebounds, 1.86 assists, 1.43 steals, and 1.43 blocks per game. The native of Pampanga, who was discovered by Ron Tuazon, has led the Baby Falcons to a 4-3 record so far -- tied with Ateneo High School for third. Close behind is National University-Nazareth School big man Kevin Quiambao, who accumulated 67.29 SPs. Eighteen-year-old Quiambao, who is 6-foot-4 and is in his final year, is averaging 12.71 points, 10.71 rebounds, 1.71 blocks, and 1.43 assists per game for the 7-0 Bullpups. Far Eastern University guard Penny Estacio sits at fourth with 67 SPs after posting numbers of 17.14 points, 6.14 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 2.71 steals for the second-running Baby Tamaraws, who own a 6-1 slate. University of the Philippines' Sean Torculas and Ateneo's Lebron Lopez sit at fourth and fifth respectively with 66.29 SPs. Torculas is averaging 10.57 points, 17.0 rebounds, 3.28 assists, 2.29 steals, and 2.43 blocks for the 0-7 Junior Fighting Maroons while Lopez is norming 16.29 points, 10.14 rebounds, 2.14 blocks, and 1.14 steals for the 4-3 Blue Eaglets. Ateneo's Forthsky Padrigao (66.14 SPs) and Josh Lazaro (65.85); UE's Cyrus Austria (64.71); NU's Carl Tamayo (62.29); and UP's Ray Torres (59.71) complete the top 10 players of the tournament so far......»»

EYES ON YOU, KID: UAAP 82 Jrs. players to watch

The first round of the UAAP 82 Juniors Basketball Tournament is over and done with. And we can’t wait for the second round to get started just so we could get even more glimpses of the future of Philippine basketball courtesy of these players: CARL TAMAYO and KEVIN QUIAMBAO – Nazareth School of National University TAMAYO’S ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 12.7 points, 52.3 percent shooting, 8.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists QUIAMBAO’S ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 12.7 points, 51.4 percent shooting, 10.7 rebounds, 1.7 blocks, 1.7 assists 7-foot-2, 17-year-old Kai Sotto was, hands down, the top individual talent last year in UAAP Jrs. – but even he was no match for National U’s twin towers who stood as the pillars in their dominant championship. A year later, Carl Tamayo and Kevin Quiambao have only been better all while the Bullpups have breezed to a clean sweep of Round 1. The 6-foot-7 Tamayo is yet to explode, but is still posting per game counts that any team would want their big man to have. The 6-foot-8 Quiambao, on the other hand, has had for himself a couple of powerful performances and finds himself in the league’s top five in rebounds and blocks. Either of them would have no problem whatsoever making this list on their own, but together, National U’s twin towers, well, tower over all the competition. LEBRON LOPEZ and JOSH LAZARO – Ateneo de Manila University LOPEZ’S ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 16.3 points, 10.1 rebounds, 2.1 blocks, 1.1 steals LAZARO’S ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 13.7 points, 12.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.3 blocks, 1.1 steals What National U has in imposing big men, Ateneo has in versatile forwards. Lebron Lopez and Josh Lazaro are long-limbed, athletic, and agile and it is when they share the floor together that the Blue Eagles do the most damage. Lopez, standing at 6-foot-5, has the higher ceiling between the two and is now already in the league’s top five in blocks and rebounds, but he remains in the process of putting it all together after having a tough time seeing the court when he was still in La Salle Green Hills. The 6-foot-4 Lazaro, meanwhile, has always been solid even when he was reppin’ San Beda and has only translated that, as well as a more well-rounded game, now in blue and white. Katipunan may have lost Sotto, but its future remains secure with these talented transferees who have done nothing but make an immediate impact. GERRY ABADIANO – Nazareth School of National University ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 11.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.5 steals Other guards have the highlights and the numbers, but in terms of being a court general, Gerry Abadiano is still the standard. National U has the most loaded team in all of high school, but its engine remains in good condition with much thanks to the leadership of Abadiano. The Bullpups’ boat just could not be rocked with the 5-foot-11 guard’s hands at the wheel as everybody from Carl Tamayo to Echo Laure and from Terrence Fortea to Steve Nash Enriquez heeds the call of their captain. And when the blue and gold needs a shot all of a sudden? All of us could count on Abadiano to hit his patented midrange jumper. Now that’s a leader. FORTHSKY PADRIGAO – Ateneo de Manila University ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 19.4 points, 19 total threes, 4.4 rebounds, 4.0 steals, 3.9 assists No doubt about it, Ateneo is now Forthsky Padrigao’s show to run for the foreseeable future. With his running mate in Sotto having taken his talents to the US, Padrigao has been thrust into the spotlight by his lonesome – and he has done nothing but shine. The playmaking is still there as the 5-foot-11 guard is tops in the league in assists, but he has now also unleashed his scoring skills to the tune of 19.4 points per game – second-best among all players. The shooting percentages have a long ways to go, but it’s just a matter of time before Padrigao truly makes himself into Katipunan’s next great point guard. PENNY ESTACIO – Far Eastern University-Diliman ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 17.1 points, 16 total threes, 6.1 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 2.7 steals There’s a reason FEU-Diliman went all-out in securing the services of Penny Estacio – and he has wasted no time repaying their full faith. A year after showing promise at the point of the attack for San Beda, Estacio has now blossomed into a primetime playmaker for the Baby Tamaraws. The 5-foot-11 guard could make plays for his teammates, of course, but as of right now, his capabilities and confidence are all about making plays for himself all the way to the top five in scoring. And make no mistake, Estacio is no points guard – he also uses his long limbs to good use by harassing opposing guards into turnovers he quickly converts into scoring opportunities for the green and gold. TERRENCE FORTEA – Nazareth School of National University ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 12.6 points, 19 total threes, 2.1 rebounds, 2.0 assists To be honest, Terrence Fortea has not had a good season – for his high standards, at the very least. The shooting percentages have not been kind to Fortea thus far as he is yet to hit the mark, especially from beyond the arc. Still, the 5-foot-10 scoring guard remains a frightening sight for opponents with the ball in his hands and with his uber-quick release always threatening. Terrence gonna Terrence and shooters gonna shoot – and all of the league is not at all looking forward to the game where the shots finally fall and fall and fall for Fortea. JOHN EROLON – Adamson High School ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 14.6 points, 25 total threes, 3.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.1 steals There’s a new marksman in town – and he is wearing the colors of Adamson. John Erolon, the Baby Falcons’ prized recruit from Dumaguete’s St. Louis of Don Bosco, has only proven that his shooting touch in the 2019 National Basketball Training Centre was no mirage as he has scorched the UAAP Jrs. nets for the second-most total threes after the first round. The other facets of his game have much room for improvement, of course, but there is no doubt that the rookie already has an elite skill on lock. KEAN BACLAAN – De La Salle Zobel ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 17.1 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.1 steals DLSZ has not had its day under the sun since the days of Aljun Melecio, but with the entry of talented transferee Kean Baclaan, it hoped its time would come again. Thus far, Baclaan has held up his end of the bargain with his super scoring already making its way to the UAAP Jrs. all while doing a little bit of everything else. Now, all that’s left for the 5-foot-8 playmaker to do is to energize the rest of his teammates so that the Jr. Archers could finally put an end to their three-year playoff drought. SEAN TORCULAS – University of the Philippines Integrated School ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 10.6 points, 17.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 2.3 steals, 2.4 blocks Yes, UPIS remains winless. Yes, head coach Paolo Mendoza’s eight-man rotation plays somewhere between 15 to 34 minutes per game. Yes, statistics never tell the true story. Still, being first in rebounds, first in blocks, second in assists, and third in steals in a league filled to the brim with talent is nothing to brush aside – especially if you are an undersized forward. That’s exactly what Sean Torculas has done after Round 1, though, and it is, without a doubt, all because his motor never stops working. That’s exactly what a rebuilding team wants and needs from its building block. JACOB CORTEZ – University of Sto. Tomas ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 16.1 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.0 steals UST has its own talented transferee who has, thus far, flown under the radar, in Jacob Cortez. Nonetheless, the son of ex-pro Mike Cortez has begun to open eyes as he has the ability to score from all over the floor. With “Cool Cat” genes in him, the 5-foot-9 has only made sure that the Tiger Cubs remain a threat in the post-Mark Nonoy era. HONORABLE MENTIONS Jorick Bautista – Far Eastern University-Diliman John Dalisay – De La Salle Zobel --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

National U blasts San Beda to bag B2B PSSBC titles

Halfway through the third quarter, it was already apparent who will emerge as the country’s “prince of hoops.” Indeed, there was no doubt about it as defending champion and UAAP king National U overpowered reigning titlist San Beda, 105-80, to become the first back-to-back champion of the Philippine Secondary Schools Basketball Championship-Freego Cup  last Thursday at SGS Stadium in Quezon City. With Gerry Abadiano scoring almost at will, the Bullpups steadily pulled away until they practically settled the issue with five minutes left in the third when their lead ballooned to 26 points, 80-54. At the end of the third quarter, the 5-foot-11 Abadiano already had 29 point on 8-of-12 shooting, including 3-of-5 from the 3-point zone. He went on to finish with 35 points with Terrence Fortea backing him up with 23 points spiked by six triples in the event also sponsored by Poly-Gloss, IronCon Builders, Macbeth Underwear, Happy Toothpaste, Jumbo Plastic Linoleum, MEC Networks, and Blackwater Sports. “Magaling talaga ang batang iyan,” said NU coach Goldwin Monteverde who also drew stellar performances from two his big men in Carl Tamayo and Kevin Quiambao. Quiambao and Tamayo wound up with 14 points and 12 points, respectively, apart from anchoring the team’s rock-solid defense that held San Beda star Justine Sanchez to just three points. Quiambao was named tournament MVP for the second straight year while Abadiano was the hands-down choice for the Final MVP in the event also supported by Molten, Gerry’s Grill, Cherrylume, Sumo GI Sheet, and Choi Garden. The Bullpups' title win was its 12th in a row counting its triumphs in the UAAP, Palarong Pambansa, and ASEAN Schools Games. They also collected PhP 50, 000 from Freego big boss Eduard Tio while the Red Cubs settled for PhP 30, 000. The Baby Tamaraws received PhP 20, 000. Meantime, FEU-Diliman wound up third after edging Ateneo, 82-76, thanks to the 29-point show of John Rey Pasaol.

Bullpups drop 31-point hammer on Blue Eaglets in UAAP 82 Finals rematch

STANDINGS Bullpups 7-0 Baby Tamaraws 6-1 Baby Falcons 4-3 Blue Eaglets 4-3 Tiger Cubs 3-4 Jr. Archers 2-5 Jr. Warriors 2-5 Jr. Maroons 0-7 Nazareth School of National University put on a dominant display in its first meeting opposite modern-day rival Ateneo de Manila High School in the UAAP 82 Boys' Basketball Tournament as the defending champions delivered a 31-point beatdown, 102-71, on last year's runners-up last Sunday at Paco Arena. Carl Tamayo was a force and feasted on his opponents' now-Kai Sotto and Geo Chiu-less frontline for a 27-point, 13-rebound double-double to go along with two blocks. Terrence Fortea was also on-point, dropping 20 points all in the first half to help the Bullpups sweep the first round. Unheralded Ernest Felicilda even joined in on the fun in the third as his steal to score punctuated National U's 33-14 quarter for a 33-point lead, 81-48. As always, though, even though they just won for the seventh time in as many games, head coach Goldwin Monteverde saw much room for improvement for his wards. "For one, we have 28 turnovers so that's something we have to work on," he said. Still breathing down the Bullpups' necks, however, is Far Eastern University-Diliman which got the better of fellow playoff hopeful Adamson High School, 89-81. Penny Estacio fired 10 of his 23 points in the final frame while Chiolo Anonuevo also added 21 markers as the Baby Tamaraws' charged to their sixth consecutive victory following a season-opening loss. On the other hand, the Baby Falcons fell to 4-3 even  after a 21-point, 11-rebound outing by John Figueroa. Sporting the same slate are the Blue Eagles who were fronted by Forthsky Padrigao who had 17 points to his name. Meanwhile, University of Sto. Tomas put a stop to its struggles at the expense of De La Salle Zobel, 68-65. Bismarck Lina turned in his best game of the season with 15 points and eight rebounds to tow the Tiger Cubs back into the win column now at 3-4. The Jr. Archers now stand on even ground with University of the East after the latter downed the University of the Philippines Integrated School, 77-70.

Bullpups stay spotless, Baby Tams still streaking in UAAP 82

STANDINGS Bullpups 5-0 Baby Tamaraws 4-1 Baby Falcons 3-2 Blue Eaglets 3-2 Tiger Cubs 2-3 Jr. Archers 2-3 Jr. Warriors 1-4 Jr. Maroons 0-5 Nazareth School of National University went all-out to make sure it didn’t suffer the same fate that befell new-age rival Ateneo de Manila High School in the continuing UAAP 82 Boys’ Basketball Tournament. With Kevin Quiambao towering above all and everybody else taking care of their own business, the Bullpups made quick work of University of the East, 91-49, Wednesday at Paco Arena. Quiambao was a force with a 15-point, 15-rebound double-double while Ernest Felicilda and Reyland Torres also added 12 and 11 markers, respectively, to make sure the Bullpups stayed away from the upset ax. Just four days ago, the Jr. Warriors pulled the rug from under the favored Blue Eaglets. There was no such thing happening to National U as Carl Tamayo and Terrence Fortea didn’t even have to do much with all 16 players fielded in by head coach Goldwin Monteverde contributing in the scoring column. Still, coach Gold saw much room for improvement at the other end. “Okay naman shooting namin, but yung defense namin, wala pa dun,” he said. That defense actually suffocated the Jr. Warriors to just 26 percent shooting from the field and yet, the softspoken shot-caller wants much more from his wards moving forward from their 5-0 start to the season. Right behind the Bullpups in the standings is Far Eastern University-Diliman which charged through very game University of Sto. Tomas, 80-73. Penny Estacio stuffed the stat sheet with 21 points, five assists, five steals, and four rebounds while backcourt partner Jorick Bautista had his own 19 markers, six dimes, five boards, and two pilfers. With those two at the controls, the Baby Tamaraws ran circles around their opponents for a 28-6 edge in transition en route to their fourth win in a row following a season-opening loss. Bouncing back onto the win column is Ateneo de Manila High School courtesy of a 99-70 rout of the University of the Philippines Integrated School. Transferees Lebron Lopez and Josh Lazaro were big in the Blue Eaglets’ bounce back to 3-2 with the former finishing with 20 points, three rebounds, and three blocks and the latter ending with 17 markers and 13 boards. In the day’s other game, Adamson High School dropped a 32-point hammer on De La Salle Zobel, 89-57. Marcus Nitura busted out with 21 points to lead the Baby Falcons to back-to-back wins and a 3-2 standing. The Tiger Cubs, who suffered a second straight setback to fall to 2-3, were paced by Jacob Cortez who had 23 points while the Jr. Archers, sporting the same slate, were paced by Kean Baclaan and John Dalisay who had nine markers apiece. Meanwhile, Jericho Montecalvo had 14 markers to front the effort for UE even though they dropped down to 1-4 and Ray Torres showed the way for UPIS with 21 markers even though they remained winless in five games.

UAAP 82: Bullpups flex on Jr. Archers even as Ateneo falters vs UE

STANDINGS Bullpups 4-0 Baby Tamaraws 3-1 Tiger Cubs 2-2 Blue Eaglets 2-2 Baby Falcons 2-2 Jr. Archers 2-2 Jr. Warriors 1-3 Jr. Maroons 0-4 Nazareth School of National University showed its might anew, Saturday at Paco Arena and struck down De La Salle Zobel, 86-57. The Bullpups' bigs dominated with Carl Tamayo pounding in 11 points and seven rebounds in just 19 minutes and Kevin Quiambao pumping in 10 markers and 10 boards in 21 minutes. Rookie Jimmy Lantaya also played big off the bench with 13 points and six rebounds as the blue and gold had no problems whatsoever for their fourth win in as many games.
