MPBL: Bulanadi saves the day as Basilan reaches semis

BASILAN -- Basilan-Jumbo Plastic turned to Allyn Bulanadi in the clutch to outlast Iloilo-United, 70-63, to advance to the 2020 Chooks-to-Go/MPBL Lakan South semifinals, Monday at the Lamitan Gymnasium here. Down by three points with under two minutes left in the fourth frame, Iloilo's Al Tamsi fired a huge three-pointer to shackle the scores at 63-all. However, after botching a three-point attempt, Allyn Bulanadi atoned for his mistake and attacked the basket to give Basilan a two-point edge, 65-63, with 1:27 left. The 22-year-old Gilas cadet then buried a trey with 48.9 ticks remaining to push the Steel's lead to five, 68-63. Jay Collado iced the game after converting two from the line with 21.2 left to play. "Nag-double effort sila sa ensayo nila e kasi tinalo namin sila nung Game One so nakapag-adjust talaga sila. Nahirapan kami pero buti na lang nanalo," said Collado following the victory. Collado finished the game with a double-double performance of 18 points and 10 rebounds on top of three assists and two blocks. Jhaps Bautista chimed in 12 points and three dimes while Bulanadi, who scored five of Basilan's last seven points, ended up with 11 markers and five boards. On the other hand, Tamsi paced the Royals with 16 points founded on four three-pointers. Iloilo had to finish the game without lead gunner Russel Escoto who suffered a right ankle sprain with 32.9 left in the third period after landing on Bobby Balucanag's foot off a three-point attempt. Balucanag was assessed with a disqualifying foul. Escoto had 13 points, eight boards, two assists, along with five turnovers. Basilan will battle Bacoor City in the semifinals of the South Division. The Scores: Basilan-Jumbo Plastic (70) -- Collado 18, Bautista 12, Bulanadi 11, Balucanag 7, Daa 5, Dagangon 4, Dumapig 3, Uyloan 3, Lunor 2, Manalang 2, Palencia 0 Iloilo-United (63) -- Tamsi 16, Escoto 13, Publico 7, Jeruta 7, Parker 6, Prado 6, Golla 2, Javelosa 2, Arambulo 2, Gumaru 1, Sierra 0 Quarterscores: 24-18, 36-35, 54-50, 70-63.....»»

Fury wins in stunning stoppage of Wilder in heavyweight tilt

By TIM DAHLBERG AP Boxing Writer LAS VEGAS (AP) — Tyson Fury is a heavyweight champion once again, dominating Deontay Wilder in their title rematch Saturday night before Wilder’s corner threw in the towel in the seventh round. A boxer in their first fight, Fury went on the attack in the rematch and knocked Wilder down twice before a flurry of punches in the seventh prompted his corner to call an end to the highly anticipated rematch. Fury dropped Wilder in the third round with a right hand that seemed to take the legs out of the champion. He put him down again in the fifth round, this time with a left hand to the body. The end came at 1:39 of the seventh round when referee Kenny Bayless stopped the fight after Wilder’s corner threw in the towel as he was getting pummeled in a neutral corner. It was the first loss for Wilder in 44 fights, and it came in the 11th defense of the title he won in 2015. Fury stalked Wilder almost from the opening bell, using his jab to control the early rounds. He won every round on the scorecard of the Associated Press and was in total command of the fight when it ended. Wilder briefly protested the stoppage, as a pro-Fury crowd at the MGM Grand hotel roared in delight. Fury had bulked up to 273 pounds for the rematch, vowing to change tactics and become the big puncher. He was true to his word, dominating early with a jab that stopped Wilder in his tracks and then landing combinations to the head and body. The rematch drew a sellout crowd that set a record of more than $17 for the live gate and was expected to do well on pay-per-view. Both fighters were guaranteed $5 million but could make $40 million apiece......»»

Racialized

One of the newer terms that’s been used in politics and media is “weaponized” or “weaponizing” where people turn an otherwise neutral thing such as gender or the likes and use it as a weapon to attack, beat down or criticize their opponents. In the last few days, the latest strategy I’ve seen is how a serious public concern has been “racialized” where no less than the President and his men have fought back public criticism for the government’s slow response to the novel coronavirus by calling it racial discrimination or xenophobia......»»
