Lady Chiefs defuse Lady Bombers for a share of second spot

strong>Games Thursday: /strong> (The Arena, San Juan) 8:30 a.m. --- CSB vs SBC (jrs) 10:00 a.m. --- CSB vs. SBC (m) 11:30 a.m. --- CSB vs SBC (w) 1:00 p.m. --- Mapua vs Letran (w) 2:30 p.m. --- Mapua vs Letran (m)   Arellano University flirted with disaster in its return to action after the holiday break before regrouping just in time to stave off the upset-conscious Jose Rizal University Lady Bombers, 26-28, 25-6, 25-15, 25-20, Wednesday at the resumption of the 92nd NCAA women’s volleyball competition at The Arena in San Juan. The Lady Chiefs, looking to return to the throne after losing the crown last year, notched their fifth straight win in six games to move closer to clinching a semifinals spot but needed a huge bounce back in the second frame to recover from a sluggish start. Arellano moved to a three-way tie at second with Lyceum of the Philippines University and defending champion College of St. Benilde behind unbeaten San Sebastian College (6-0). Jovielyn Prado finished with 18 points with 16 coming off kills while skipper Rialen Saet and Mary Anne Esguerra got 15 and 13 markers, respectively, for the Lady Chiefs, who will take on CSB, LPU and Perpetual Help to wrap up their eliminations campaign.       “Ang target namin na kailangang manalo nangyayari. ‘Yun nga lang ang game kanina, ‘yung mga player ko masyadong in-underestimate ang kalaban which is mali naman talaga,” said Arellano coach Obet Javier. “’Yun ang no. 1 kong itata-tackle sa kanila.” The mentor added that he gave his team a quick tongue-lashing after the opening set to get their heads in the game. “Ipina-realize ko sa kanila na kapag ganyan ang mangyayari ay pwede tayong bumaba sa rankings at pwede pa kaming malaglag kung saka-sakali,” said Javier. “Eh buti naman nag-response ng maayos.” JRU formally bowed out of contention in the semifinals race after absorbing its fifth loss in seven outings. Shola Alvarez had 17 points while Rosalie Pepito chipped in 14 for the Lady Bombers, who still have Letran and Perpetual in their list of assignments to close their season.       ---   Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles      .....»»

LPU demolishes EAC in NCAA volley

strong>Games Thursday: /strong> (The Arena, San Juan) 8:30 a.m. --- CSB vs SBC (jrs) 10:00 a.m. --- CSB vs. SBC (m) 11:30 a.m. --- CSB vs SBC (w) 1:00 p.m. --- Mapua vs Letran (w) 2:30 p.m. --- Mapua vs Letran (m)   Lyceum of the Philippines University opened the new year with a sweet sweep of the 92nd NCAA volleyball competition playdate against Emilio Aguinaldo College Wednesday at The Arena in San Juan. The Intramuros-based squad emerged victorious on all fronts highlighted by a shocker dealt by the Junior Pirates to the erstwhile unbeaten Brigadiers in the high school play to start the day. The Junior Pirates banked on the 20-point production of Valeriano Sasis to put a dent on the Brigadiers' record with a 25-19, 25-23, 22-25, 25-22, victory for its fourth straight win in as many outings. LPU snapped EAC’s five-game winning run. The Lady Pirates, on the other hand, rolled to their third straight victory for a share of the second spot with a 25-20, 25-23, 25-20, demolition of the listless Lady Generals. Picking up from where they left off last month before the holiday break, LPU improved to 5-1 win-loss record tied with idle defending champion College of St. Benilde. Skipper Cherilyn Sindayen, Czarina Orros and Christine Miralles logged in 12 points each for LPU. La Rainne Fabay added 10 markers for the Lady Pirates, who uncorked 40 attack points with Sindayen and Orros hitting 10 each. Despite their easy win, head coach Emil Lontoc was far from satisfied with the way his players’ performance. “Kailangan pa naming mag-step up pa kasi yung nakikita namin sa ensayo hindi namin nagagawa rito. Kanina ang pangit ng receive namin,” said Lontoc, whose squad is on the right track to advance to the semifinals for the first time since 2011. “Siguro kanina masyadong kumpiyansa sila na alam nilang hindi gaanong malakas ang kalaban,” he added. The Lady Pirates will have another long break before their crucial matches against other semifinal contenders Perpetual Help on January 13, Arellano University on January 18 before closing the eliminations on a collision course with San Sebastian College on January 23. The Lady Generals dropped to 0-7 record with only Jaylene Lumbo scoring in double figures with 11. In men’s play, the Pirates evened their record at 3-3 with a 27-25, 25-20, 25-18, victory over the freefalling Generals. Jhonel Badua and Joeward Presnede scored 14 points each for the LPU, which tied Mapua and San Sebastian College at the middle of the pack heading into the closing stretch of the elims. EAC absorbed its seventh loss in as many outings.       --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

Arellano, LPU seek a share of the second spot

strong>Games Wednesday: /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)   Action in the 92nd NCAA volleyball competition resumes on Wednesday at The Arena in San Juan. Arellano University looks to extend its winning streak to five when the Lady Chiefs take on the struggling Jose Rizal University in the women’s play at 1:00 p.m. Behind the steady games of Jovielyn Prado and Rialen Sante, the Lady Chiefs won four straight after dropping its opening game against unbeaten San Sebastian College. Arellano is coming off a straight sets win over San Beda Lionesses, 25-22, 25-22, 25-14, almost a month ago for a 4-1 win-loss record tied with Lyceum of the Philippines University Lady Pirates, who will open 2017 with a clash with listless Emilio Aguinaldo College Lady Generals in the scheduled 11:30 a.m. match. A win by the Lady Chiefs and the Lady Pirates will move them at second place tied with defending champion College of St. Benilde (5-1) behind league-leading Lady Stags (6-0). The Lady Bombers, on the other hand, are on a three-game skid for a 2-4 slate and are on the brink of elimination in the race for a semis spot. JRU absorbed a 15-25, 10-25, 23-25, beating at the hands of SSC-R last December 12. Meanwhile, LPU is on a two-game roll after a big five-set upset over the Lady Blazers and a straight sets dismantling of Mapua to end 2016. The WNCAA multi-titled squad, which joined the league five seasons ago, is just a few steps closer to breaking into its first-ever Final Four appearance. The Intramuros-based Lady Pirates will bank on Cherilyn Sindayen, who is averaging 14.8 points per game, Czarina Orros and La Rainne Fabay against the Lady Generals, who are winless in six games. EAC is at the cellar with other eliminated teams Mapua (0-6) and Letran (0-5). In the men's game LPU takes on EAC at 10:00 a.m while Arellano U face-off with JRU. In the lone juniors game the Brigadiers collide with the Junior Pirates at 8:30 a.m.        ---  Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles          .....»»

Spurs missing Parker, Gasol for matchup against Cavaliers

CLEVELAND (AP) — The San Antonio Spurs will be without starters Tony Parker and Pau Gasol when they face the Cavaliers on Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time). Parker was expected to play after being scratched Thursday (Friday, PHL time) with a sore left foot. However, the team said Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) he is still experiencing pain and won't play. The 34-year-old is averaging 11.5 points per game, his lowest since his rookie season in 2001. Gasol is out indefinitely after breaking his left hand during warmups Thursday night. He underwent surgery Friday (Saturday, PHL time). While the team hasn't put a timetable on his return, Gasol is likely to miss at least one month. He's averaging 11.7 points and 7.9 rebounds. David Lee is expected to start in Gasol's spot. The Cavs are hoping to have Kevin Love in the lineup after he missed Thursday's (Friday, PHL time) game with back spasms. He took part in the team's shootaround Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) but is listed as questionable. .....»»
