PVL: Bundit happy to be back

Thai coach Tai Bundit made his return on Creamline’s bench on Saturday and the mentor was just glad to once again call the shots for the repeat-seeking Cool Smashers. “I’m happy because Creamline is my team,” said Bundit after winning his debut in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Reinforced Conference over listless Motolite, 13-25, 25-19, 25-16, 25-23, at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The mentor, who steered the Cool Smashers to last year’s import-laden and Open Conference titles, was re-signed by the team’s management six months since parting ways. He replaced Chinese coach Huanning Li after the star-studded Creamline squad suffered a straight sets loss to PetroGazz in its debut. Bundit, who left the team six months ago, flew in last Monday. “Six months ago I went back to fix everything and my son he (took) an exam to go to high school. That high school is Top 5 in Thailand and my wife says, ‘OK. {Our] son is in high school so you can go [back] to Philippines,’” said Bundit. He was welcomed by top local hitter Alyssa Valdez and the rest of the Cool Smashers with their third straight win. “Knowing Coach Tai’s program, most of us na nasa team niya na-mentor na niya eh, napagdaanan na ‘yun,” said Valdez. “I guess we’re trying to adapt sa pagbabalik niya, sa system.” “More than ever we have to bring back the happy and heartstrong mantra of coach Tai,” added Valdez, who has been under Bundit’s guidance since 2013. “I think ‘yun ang pinaka-crucial at key this season kasi nga lahat ng teams malalakas.” The Cool Smashers are at solo second spot with a 3-1 win-loss slate behind unbeaten league-leading PetroGazz. Creamline will close the first round on Wednesday against BaliPure.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Mag-isip sila sa laro -- coach Gorayeb on Lady Stags

strong>Games on January 4: /strong> (The Arena, San Juan) 8:30 a.m. --- EAC vs LPU (jrs) 10:00 a.m. --- EAC vs. LPU (m) 11:30 a.m. --- EAC vs LPU (w) 1:00 p.m. --- Arellano vs JRU (w) 2:30 p.m. --- Arellano vs JRU (m)     San Sebastian College may be just three games away from completing an eliminations sweep to earn a free ride straight to the Finals but head coach Roger Gorayeb is still doubtful if the Lady Stags can make a repeat of their last year’s feat. The multi-titled mentor said that there’s a lot of things that his team needs to improve on heading into the final stretch of the 92nd NCAA women’s volleyball tournament.  “’Yung kasing kilos nila kung oobserbahan ko ngayon, ‘yang kilos nilang ‘yan hindi 'yan pang-straight (elims sweep) na panalo,” said Gorayeb, who wants to end a six-year title drought. “Wala, ang dami pa nilang butas.” SSC-R won its first six games to remain the only undefeated team but will next face Perpetual Help, Lyceum of the Philippines University and a championship rematch with defending champion College of St. Benilde to wrap up their elims campaign. Gorayeb said that he’s not thinking about the Lady Stags completing a sweep of the elims, but what he wants to see is for his team to play as a team and his players to do their roles and not rely too much on reigning back-to-back Most Valuable Player Grethcel Soltones, who is averaging 16.17 points per game.    “Actually 'di ko na tinitingnan ang sweep. Ang gusto ko lang manalo ng manalo,” said Gorayeb, whose team swept last year’s elims to advance in the Finals outright only to fall at the hands of CSB in four games. “Hindi rin naman pwedeng umasa na lang ng umasa kay Grethcel,” he added.  Gorayeb pointed out that his team should work harder both on offense and defense and must be the side dictating the tempo of the match. He added that he wants his wards to think and adjust inside the court. “At this point in time marunong na silang maglaro,” he said. “Ang problema hindi sila marunong mag-isip during the laro. Nagre-rely sila dun sa sasabihin ko sa kanila. Ayoko na ngang magsalita para kumilos na lang sila ng kumilos.” SSC-R will resume action on January 11 against Perpetual Help (3-2) before taking on LPU on January 23 while the Finals rematch against CSB is scheduled on the 25th. In case of a sweep, SSC-R will advance to be the Finals with a thrice-to-beat advantage. The next three teams after the elims will play in the stepladder semifinals with the no. 2 seed enjoying a twice-to-beat incentive.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»
