Asia, prepare for the Pringle-Lee-Clarkson backcourt

A backcourt of Stanley Pringle, Paul Lee, and Jordan Clarkson? Enough to be the best in Asia, if you ask former Gilas Pilipinas coach Tab Baldwin. With the entry of the Cleveland Cavaliers guard to the physical and explosive backcourt of Team Philippiines, the current Ateneo Blue Eagles head coach says that Gilas' opponents would have their hands full in guarding them. "So, you know, this is an exceptionally strong back court. I don't think Asia's seen anything like it, to be honest," Baldwin said in an interview at the ABS-CBN Integrated Sports Office. Even before the inclusion of Clarkson in the 12-man lineup in the quadrennial affair, Baldwin already noted the greatness of the backcourt, which includes the Globalport star, which he calls as 'one of the best point guards in Asia.' "Adding Jordan (Clarkson) will help a lot because it puts a guy in the lineup that can do some hard work in and around the basket. He's a good rebounder, he's got good size, strength and experience. But man, what a back court they have now produced." Asia better be ready for an 'exceptionally strong back court' of Stanley Pringle, Paul Lee, and of course, Jordan Clarkson, says coach Tab. "I don't think Asia's seen anything like it, to be honest."'#AsianGames | @abscbnsports pic.twitter.com/aIB0qjgrD5 — Philip Martin Matel (@philipptionary) August 15, 2018 In addition to calling Pringle, who was a former top pick in the PBA Rookie Draft, as the best in the continent, Baldwin added that the Lee is not too far behind. The American-Kiwi coach cited the intangibles those two possess since they create opportunities not just for themselves, but for the whole team's offense. "So it gives Yeng [Guiao] the luxury of running a pretty basic offensive action, which with the limited time they have to prepare, you're gonna love that. He's gonna love that." Even though Asia is not necessarily known for tough and physical play, having a backcourt like Pringle, Lee, and Clarkson will work wonders for the Guiao-mentored squad, and have a chance to create mismatches for the Philippine side. With that said, in order to win it all, which is not a far possibility Baldwin says, the loaded backcourt needs to be supported by a 'little bit small and thin' front court, with the tallest player being 45-year old 6 foot 9 Asi Taulava with 6 foot 8 Christian Standhardinger, 6 foot 8 Raymond Almazan and 6 foot 8 Poy Erram not too far behind. "I hope and pray that Christian and Beau and Poy and Asi, that these guys will do a good job on the board for us. If they do that, I think they'll be in good shape."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»

In another turn, Jordan Clarkson is cleared to play for Gilas Pilipinas in the 2018 Asian Games. According to Chef de Mission Richard Gomez, the NBA has given Clarkson to go signal to play for the national team, which makes its Asiad debut against Kazakhstan on Thursday, August 16.

NCAA: Frankie Lim s green light gives Jielo Razon confidence in the clutch

Even as a rookie, Jielo Razon has shown that he can steady the ship. Tied at 72 with under two minutes to go, Razon took matters into his own hands and drilled two straight triples for the Perpetual Altas to keep the upset-conscious JRU Heavy Bombers at bay and got the 78-72 win at the Filoil Flying V Centre.  Edgar Charcos, NO! Jielo Razon, YES! THREE! #NCAASeason94 #GalingNCAA pic.twitter.com/oefWtv3PNO — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) August 14, 2018 Jielo Razon ANOTHER triple. Cold-blooded. #NCAASeason94 #GalingNCAA pic.twitter.com/uP9LebO86N — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) August 14, 2018 Those shots are bound to stick with his name for the rest of his collegiate career, all thanks to a confidence booster from none other than head coach Frankie Lim.   "Si coach rin ang nagbibigay ng kumpiyansa, hindi lang sa akin, kundi sa lahat. Lahat naman po kami ready. Alam po namin nira-run namin. Siguro nangyari na yun. Sabi rin ni coach yun, kung open, wala nang hesitate-hesitate," the homegrown Razon said after the game. Lim previously gave praise to his poised rookie as he has made the most of set plays. "Great shots, great shots. Our offense keeps our shooters outside opportunities to take open shots. Nasa players lang on how they want to use it. Big shot from a rookie. He's been playing well for the past games." With the Altas rising to 4-2, Lim acknowledges that the gritty team's wins have never come easy. "Pero ano, a win is a win. Something remarkable happened in the second half. We had like just two turnovers. And I think we're beginning to take care of the ball. Mas maraming nangyayari."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»
