Adamson hero Sean Manganti spreads his wings as Player of the Week

The Adamson Soaring Falcons continue to fly high in UAAP Season 81 with an immaculate 5-0 record. That wouldn't have been possible if not for Sean Manganti who emerged as the hero in the Soaring Falcons’ thrilling 69-68 win over the UP Fighting Maroons last Wednesday. Adamson was on the verge of suffering its first loss, but the third-year forward crushed the hearts of the Diliman faithful by knocking down a tough floater off a broken play with 0.7 seconds left. “It was just a scramble at that point. I was taught to never quit until you hear the buzzer, so I just kept going until we heard the buzzer,” he said about the game-winner, which was the cherry on top of his team-high 18 points. Just three days later, Manganti showed up again for Adamson in their 63-58 triumph over the NU Bulldogs, spearheading the charge with 14 points, three rebounds, four assists, and two steals. For being instrumental in the Soaring Falcons’ twin victories this week that preserved their unblemished slate, the Filipino-American high-flyer has earned the CHOOKS-TO-GO/UAAP Press Corps Player of the Week honors. Prior to these back-to-back impressive performances, Manganti had a fluctuating start to the season. He struggled with just four points against the Ateneo Blue Eagles, delivered a career-high 27 points against the UE Red Warriors, then went scoreless against the UST Growling Tigers. The Adamson skipper admitted that he needs to be more consistent going forward. "It's up and down, up and down. It's been very hard. It's disappointing,” he said. "I just want to be consistent, help carry the team, and do everything to carry the team." Manganti bested UE’s Alvin Pasaol, UP's Bright Akhuetie, and Ateneo’s Angelo Kouame for the weekly award......»»

UAAP Season 81 beach volleyball: Tams secure a semis spot

Far Eastern University dropped a set for the first time Friday in the UAAP Season 81 men’s beach volleyball tournament. But even the gritty resistance from Adamson University couldn’t stop the Tamaraws pair of Jude Garcia and Kevin Hadlocon as they repulsed the Falcons duo of Paolo Pablico and Jesus Valdez, 21-19, 18-21, 15-6, to clinch a semifinals seat at the Sands SM by the Bay. FEU extended its winning streak to five straight to remain the only unbeaten team in the contest. After a second set meltdown the Tams regrouped in the deciding frame to move within two wins to advance outright in the Finals. “Nag-usap lang kami na mag-focus at bumalik sa dating galaw namin. Dapat 'yung composure namin nandoon pa rin na willing kami manalo,” said Garcia. “Dapat ipakita namin sa kanila na angat 'yung laro namin kesa sa kanila. “'Yung third set po, 'yun talaga ang game namin. Kaso 'yung unang dalawang set medyo nagkumpiyansa kami,” he added. FEU opened its day with a 21-13, 21-13 demolition of University of the East’s Clifford Inoferio and Alven Aljas.   The Falcons slid to 3-2 card after failing to sustain their momentum following a 21-15, 21-18, sweep of Abail Llenos and Kurt Aguilar of Ateneo de Manila University. Meanwhile, reigning champions Bryan Bagunas and James Natividad of National University improved to 4-1 slate in a twin kill over University of the Philippines’ Nico Consuelo and Mark Millete, 21-13, 21-13, and the De La Salle University pair of Geraint Bacon and Raphael Sumalinog, 21-15, 21-17. University of Sto. Tomas’ Jaron Requiton and Krung Arbasto tied NU with 4-1 card after defeating UP, 21-16, 21-7, and UE, 21-9, 21-9. Ateneo finally barge in the win column after taking down listless DLSU, 21-11, 21-19. UE dropped its third straight game for a 2-3 card, UP and Ateneo are tied at 1-4 mark while DLSU remained winless in five outings.   ---      Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
