UAAP Season 81 Finals: UST goes for the finisher, Ateneo seeks extension

University of Sto. Tomas head coach Kungfu Reyes is looking to finish off Ateneo de Manila University and end the Tigresses' nine-year championship wait on Wednesday in Game 2 of the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball best-of-three Finals at the MOA Arena. “Kung ano nasimulan namin ‘yun pa rin,” said Reyes, whose squad took the series opener on Saturday in straight sets to move a win away from its 15th title and first since Season 72. Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream. The Tigresses shocked the top seeded Lady Eagles in Game 1 with an emphatic 25-17, 25-16, 25-20, win – UST’s seventh straight victory of the season. “Papagandahin namin ang galaw namin para ma-lessen namin errors namin para matapos na sa Wednesday,” added Reyes. UST will pin its hopes on outgoing hitter Sisi Rondina, who is set to receive her Most Valuable Player award in the awards rites at 3:30 p.m., and Rookie of the Year winner Eya Laure with Caitlyn Viray, setter Alina Bicar and freshmen Ysa Jimenez, Kecelyn Galdones and libero Janel Delerio as support. Ateneo will try to force a Game 3. The series decider, if necessary, is on Saturday. Graduating middles Maddie Madayag and Bea De Leon are expected to go all out to extend their final season with the Lady Eagles, who are hoping to end a four-year title drought. Kat Tolentino, who was the only player in double figures in Game 1, need to get more help from other hitters in Jules Samonte and Ponggay Gaston, who was limited to only one point in three sets of play.   ---     Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles     .....»»

Casillas has heart attack but Porto says he is out of danger

PORTO, Portugal (AP) — Veteran goalkeeper Iker Casillas has had a heart attack but is out of danger, Porto said Wednesday. The Portuguese club said Casillas fell ill during a practice session and remains hospitalized, but the "heart condition has been resolved." It said the 37-year-old Spaniard is "doing well" and is in stable condition. Casillas posted a photo of himself on Twitter giving a thumbs up in the hospital bed. "Everything under control here," the text said. "A big scare, but holding strong. Thank you everyone for the messages and the support." Todo controlado por aquí, un susto grande pero con las fuerzas intactas. Muchísimas gracias a todos por los mensajes y el cariño ???????????? pic.twitter.com/i3TXsELUGD— Iker Casillas (@IkerCasillas) May 1, 2019 Porto said the practice session at the team's training center was interrupted so doctors could attend to Casillas. No timeline was given for how long the goalkeeper will be sidelined. Defending champion Porto trails Benfica by two points in the Portuguese league with two games left. Messages of support poured in from clubs and players across the world. "Real Madrid wishes to offer its full support to our beloved captain Iker Casillas," the Spanish club said in a statement. "Iker Casillas has shown us how to overcome the most incredible challenges throughout his professional career, adding significantly to our club's successes. He's shown us that giving up has no place in our way of life and demonstrated time and again that staying strong during the hardest of challenges is the only path to victory. "Real Madrid and all of madridismo look forward to seeing our legendary captain back in good health as soon as possible and we send him all the encouragement in the world." Casillas joined Porto in 2015 after 16 seasons with Real Madrid, which he helped win five Spanish league titles and three Champions League trophies. Casillas also helped Spain's national team win one World Cup and two European Championships. The goalkeeper's contract with Porto was recently extended until the end of the 2019-20 season, with an option for another one-year extension......»»

ONE champ Angela Lee to defend title against Huang in Thailand

CHRIS LINES, AP Sports Writer   BANGKOK (AP) — Hawaiian Angela Lee will defend her women's atomweight title against Taiwan's Jenny Huang when ONE Championship hosts its second mixed martial arts promotion in Thailand on March 11. The 20-year-old Canadian-born Lee improved her perfect career record to six wins when she won the title in a unanimous decision against Mei Yamaguchi in May last year. The fight in Bangkok will be her first defense. 'I had back to back fights leading up to the title fight, and after I won the belt I took some time off,' Lee said. 'The goal for 2017 is to be an active champion and to stay busy. 'Since my last fight, I've been training extremely hard, improving my skill set and I can't wait to show everyone.' Huang also has a perfect record, winning her fifth fight against April Osenio by submission last month. Five years older than Lee, Huang was later to start her MMA career than her upcoming opponent. 'I have been working so hard to come to this point in my career, and now that I'm finally here it all feels very surreal to me,' Huang said. 'Inside the cage I only have one goal and that's to win this bout at any cost. She better be prepared for what I bring to the table because I will go to battle with my full arsenal.' The event in Bangkok will be ONE's second promotion in Thailand after the inaugural event in May last year. ONE has an expanded schedule this year, including five fight nights in China and a first in Vietnam. The first event of the year will be in Jakarta this month. Marcin Prachnio has withdrawn from the middleweight title fight against Vitaly Bigdash due to injury and will be replaced by Aung La N Sang of Myanmar. Russia's Bigdash will be making the first defense of the title he won back in 2015. .....»»
