Valdez still recovering from foot injury ahead of Japan training camp

Creamline star Alyssa Valdez will join the national team in its Japan training starting Sunday but will be limited to light workout sessions pending her full recovery from a right foot injury. Valdez was finally allowed to remove her walking boot that she wore for almost a week.    “Fortunately and luckily, pinayagan na ako ni doc na walang boot, so I think all I have to do is to do therapy before really going to the game,” said Valdez on Wednesday. “Kasi siyempre, na-isolate talaga 'yung paa ko, wala talaga siyang, na-shut down siya kumbaga para ready lang din talaga ako.” Valdez missed the Cool Smashers second straight match. She was in uniform but sat out Creamline’s 25-15, 25-18, 25-22, drubbing of PacificTown Army in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference. “But okay naman siya at therapy lang advice ni doc for the next five days tapos after nun, I'm ready to join the drills and the trainings naman of the teams,” cleared Valdez, who was given the greenlight to remove the boot Wednesday morning. The multiple-time Philippine team member, however, assured that she will be with the squad when the Nationals fly to Tokyo for a 12-day training camp as part of their preparation for the 30th Southeast Asian Games which the country will host next month. But her workout will still depend on her condition and recovery. “I think makakasabay naman na ako pero hindi ko lang alam kung 'yung intensity ba, kasi out talaga for halos more than a month,” she said. “So, hindi ko pa alam kung nasaang percentage na 'yung recovery ko by that time.” The three-time PVL Most Valuable Player actually hurt her foot during practice a month ago that prevented her from joining the national squad in its Thailand training camp and the first leg of the ASEAN Grand Prix in Nakhon Ratchasima. Valdez was able to play in the second leg two weeks ago in Sta. Rosa, Laguna but her injury recurred and needed further evaluation and therapy. She was advised to wear a walking boot for precautionary measure. Valdez is just hoping for fast recovery to be able to train fully with the Nationals. “Hopefully lang, maka-recover and makasabay din talaga ako sa training, 'yun talaga wini-wish ko, makasabay din ako sa training nila,” she said.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

SUPER SHOWDOWN: La Salle s Justine Baltazar v Letran s Larry Muyang

Almost two decades ago, the power of Pinatubo was felt all over the Philippines. Now in 2019, two towers from Pampanga are making their presence felt in the premiere collegiate leagues of the country. De La Salle University's Justine Baltazar and Colegio de San Juan de Letran's Larry Muyang are the undisputed best local big men in the UAAP and in the NCAA, respectively. Baltazar has done a stand up job replacing Cameroonian MVP Ben Mbala while Muyang has made sure the Knights are no longer pushovers in the paint. So what happens when an irresistible force like Baltazar collides with an immovable object like Muyang? That's what we're here to find out in the second edition of the Super Showdown as we pit Philippine collegiate basketball's top Filipino centers against one another - judging them in five categories (post scoring, perimeter scoring, rebounding, defense, and playmaking) with a boxing-style 10-point must system determining the decision. POST SCORING These two learned from one of the best in the business in so-called big man whisperer Jeff Napa. Napa discovered and then developed Baltazar in Nazareth-NU and then harnessed the potential of Muyang in Letran. When it all boils down to it, though, Muyang's bulk is just perfect for the back to the basket game and he has honed his skills so much that even the likes of Cameroonians Donald Tankoua and Mike Nzeusseu have a tough time bodying him up. Baltazar is no slouch posting up, make no mistake, but his lankier frame is also not that much of a problem for bigger defenders such as Nigerian Bright Akhuetie or Senegalese Alex Diakhite. Letan's big boy has a big body in need of big sustenance - and it just so happens that he can do just that by feasting inside the paint. Advantage, Muyang, 10-9 PERIMETER SCORING Put simply, Baltazar is a threat from outside while Muyang is not - not yet, at the very least. La Salle's versatile center has the touch to take and make shots from long-range as well as mid-range. In fact, he already has five triples to his name in eight games in the season. On the other hand, Letran calls for its hulking center to make a living down low and, as such, he has not had that many chances to show off his shooting. More than that, Baltazar is the prototype for the modern big man - a tall, long-limbed, and agile giant who needs to be defended even when he's standing behind the arc. Advantage, Baltazar, 10-9 REBOUNDING Baltazar just had for himself a 25-point, 25-rebound double-double. In terms of cleaning up the glass in the UAAP, nobody is better aside from the foreign student-athletes, with his norms of 12.5 rebounds the fourth-best in all of the league. Muyang inhales his fair share of rebounds, but also lags behind in terms of cleaning up his teammates' misses. Of course, the simple explanation is that La Salle just has the more athletic big man compared of Letran's more ground-bound behemoth. Advantage, Baltazar, 10-9 DEFENSE Rim protection has always been Baltazar's elite skill - even when he was just a raw prospect as a Bullpup. Now, he has blossomed into a menace patrolling the paint and his mere presence can alter shots, if not swat them away all the way. And because he is more ground-bound, Muyang was never one to host a block party, but he more than holds his own inside thanks to his bulk. Bottom line, though, La Salle can actually boast of having the more well-rounded two-way player. Advantage, Baltazar, 10-9 PLAYMAKING Muyang is such a force down low that he attracts double and triple-teams. As such, he always has a golden opportunity to make plays for his teammates and, more often than not, makes the right plays. After all, it wasn't that long ago that Muyang, along with Jeo Ambohot, Christian Fajarito, and Bong Quinto, all clogged the paint, but still had many, many assists to share among them. This is then the department where Baltazar has the biggest room for improvement as he only has a total of eight assists in the season. Advantage, Muyang 10-9 FINAL SCORE, 48-47 for La Salle's Justine Baltazar.....»»

‘BAE’ lead Philippine men s volleyball team SEA Games roster

Bagunas, is expected to fly back in the country from Japan on November 25, and might get a chance to see if not join the Nationals in their training camp in Tokyo early next month. The National University product and UAAP Season 81 MVP is currently with the Japan V. Premier League club Oita Miyoshi Weisse Adler, the same team where Espejo played last year. Head coach Dante Alinsunurin also tapped for the final roster team captain John Vic De Guzman, Mark Alfafara, Joshua Umandal, five-time UAAP Best Setter Ish Polvorosa, veteran playmaker Jessie Lopez and Joshua Retamar. Kim Malabunga, Francis Saura, Rex Intal, Ricky Marcos and Jack Kalingking complete the lineup.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

2019 ASEAN Grand Prix: Lahat ng itinuro ni coach Ramil inaalala lang namin -- Best Libero winner Dawn Macandili

STA. ROSA, Laguna --- Majoy Baron and Dawn Macandili snatched a pair of individual awards for the Philippines in the 2019 ASEAN Grand Prix second leg. Baron bagged her second straight Best Middle Blocker recognition while Macandili was named Best Libero during the awards ceremony Sunday at the end of the four-nation tournament at the Sta. Rosa Multi-purpose Gym here. The two awardees gave the Philippines added hardware following another bronze medal finish. Showing their defensive brilliance in their respective spots during their campaign, the duo gave credit to the system of their former De La Salle University head coach and current F2 Logistics mentor Ramil De Jesus, whose training and guidance made them into vital cogs defensively for the National team.      “Siyempre ‘yung foundation nandoon and lahat ng itinuro ni coach Ramil sa amin inaalala lang din namin,” said Macandili, who two years ago bagged the AVC Asian Women’s Seniors Volleyball Championship 2nd Best Libero award. “Siyempre sa bagong coach namin ina-absorb din namin. Open kami sa criticisms and sa mga bagong itinuturo ni coach Shaq (Delos Santos) sa amin.” The five-foot wonder from Batangas and former Philippine Superliga Most Valuable Player averaged 5.4 excellent digs per set and contributed well on reception. Baron, a former UAAP MVP, averaged 6.7 points and had a total of seven kill blocks in three matches. “For me, parang deja vu. Nangyari ulit kung ano yung nangyari sa Thailand,” said Baron. “Siyempre, super happy pa rin na na-recognize yung effort.” She added that the awards were just a bonus for the Philippines and that the most important thing was that they gained valuable lessons that they’ll carry into the 30th Southeast Asian Games in Manila next month.     “For me, as long as natuto kami as a team and nakikita naman na may improvement,” said Baron. “So kailangan pa namin mag-training as a team para mas ma-improve pa namin yung mga naging lapses... para mas maging cohesive pa kami as a team.” Other individual award winners were MVP Pleumjit Thinkaow and Pimpichaya Kokram (Best Spiker) of champion Thailand and Tri Retno Mutiara (Best Setter) and Ratri Wulandari (Best Server) of runner-up Indonesia.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

2019 ASEAN Grand Prix: Philippines takes on powerhouse Thailand

STA. ROSA, Laguna -- Facing powerhouse Thailand is already a big challenge for the Philippines. Taking on the Thais without four key players makes it even tougher. But the Filipinas are ready to clash with the Thais despite great odds stacked against them Saturday in the ASEAN Grand Prix second leg at the Sta. Rosa Multi-purpose Gym here.   “Challenging talaga kasi you know very well kung paano maglaro yung Thailand,” said team captain Aby Marano of their 5:00 p.m. clash. The match is available on iWant and via livestream. The Philippines opened its campaign on a high note after dismantling Vietnam in straight sets Friday. But the Nationals will be missing the services of top hitter Alyssa Valdez, who debuted with 14 points, Maddie Madayag, starting setter Jia Morado and Jovelyn Gonzaga because of club commitments in Iloilo. The Pinays won a set over the Thais in their first leg encounter in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand ruled by the host team.    “Ngayon even challenging because we don’t have Kalei (Mau), Alohi (Robins-Hardy) and Jia, Maddie, Alyssa and ate Jovs as well so ngayon ang mangyayari yung mga bata natin tas kami maiiwan,” said Marano. Backup setter Jasmine Nabor, who joined the team just last Monday, will start for Morado. Roselyn Doria is expected to step up for Madayag while Grethcel Soltones could take the spot of Valdez and young blood Eya Laure might take the spot of Gonzaga. Thailand is also coming off a straight sets win over Indonesia in a rematch of their first leg gold medal match.     ---   Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Robins-Hardy to miss SEA Games -- Romasanta

Setter Alohi Robins-Hardy opted to withdraw from the Southeast Asian Games pool following some issues in securing a Philippine passport that will enable her to suit up for biennial meet that the country will host in November. Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. president Joey Romasanta in a conversation with reporters on Friday, explained that the 6-foot-2 Fil-American also decided to skip the ASEAN Grand Prix second leg to give way to other members of the pool that are using the four-nation tournament as part of their buildup for the SEA Games set to begin on Nov 30.    “Alohi wants to give way na doon sa mga members ng team kasi nga di na siya makakahabol for the Southeast Asian Games gawa na may problema sa pag-secure ng Philippine passport,” said Romasanta. An athlete to participate in the SEA Games must secure a passport from the country he or she is representing. Robins-Hardy and injured hitter Kalei Mau were replaced by playmaker Jasmine Nabor and Grethcel Soltones in the national team playing in the ASEAN GP slated from Oct. 4-6 against teams from Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia.   Robins-Hardy and Mau saw action in the Nationals’ third place finish in the first leg of the ASEAN Grand Prix in Thailand two weeks ago. Romasanta added that they are already working with Robins-Hardy in processing her passport but it will take time.    “Medyo mahaba kasi ang process ng pagkuha niya ng passport and she won’t get it in time para sa SEA Games kasi by October 7 na ang deadline for submission of names,” said Romasanta. The 2019 ASEAN Grand Prix second leg will be available via iWant and livestream (Philippines only). Livestream abroad is available via TFC.tv.   ---     Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Volleyball community unites for Jovelyn Gonzaga’s nephew

National team hitter Jovelyn Gonzaga was thankful for the overwhelming support from fellow volleyball players and volleyball fans for her nephew who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. The local volleyball community united to extend financial help for Gonzaga’s three-year old nephew Calix Vander or CV.      “Sobrang overwhelming ng volleyball community,” said the opposite hitter on Thursday during the welcome dinner for the ASEAN Grand Prix second leg in Crimson Hotel in Alabang. “Ang dami nga nagme-message na ganito lang ang maitutulong ko. Walang konting tulong, pag pinagsama-sama ‘yun napakalaking bagay. And prayers, sabi ko prayers niyo napakalaking bagay na ‘yun para sa pamangkin ko.” Hi VB Community! We are organizing another jersey auction for ate @JOVZKIE08 and her nephew, Calix Vander, who's been recently diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. This auction will be participated in by both PSL and PVL players. Hope we can all support this cause. ????????? pic.twitter.com/eE8eyOAeKW — Carmela Tunay (@carmelaloo08) October 3, 2019 Gonzaga said that CV had undergone numerous check-ups the past month and was hospitalized for two weeks before the doctors found out that it was leukemia. “Almost more than a month na ‘yung check-ups niya tapos na-hospital na rin siya for more than two weeks, muntik na nga akong hindi sumama ng Thailand (ASEAN Grand Prix first leg) kasi gusto ko siyang tutukan pero hindi pwede kasi may commitment ako kata tuluy-tuloy ang monitor ko sa kanya,” said Gonzaga. “At that time ang dami niyang test eh,” continued the enlisted Army personnel. “Kasi unang finding sa kanya, may namuong bukol sa heart niya pero doon na na-find out na may problema siya sa dugo. So ang daming test, bone marrow test, biopsy and all. Hanggang sa nalaman na may leukemia.” It was her friends Carmela Tunay of Petron and Cignal teammate Rachel Anne Daquis who started a fund-raising campaign for CV.    “Thankful ako kasi that time mga two weeks pa lang na-admit si CV, nag-message na si Mela sa akin,” said Gonzaga. “Sobrang blessing ni Mela at ni ate Rachel Daquis.” “Actually sila talaga ‘yung nagri-reach out sa akin na, ‘ate, if ever gusto mong magpa-auction’ kasi dati nagpa-acution na rin siya para kay Ian Larriba,” Gonzaga added. “So sabi ko sa kanya, ‘sige beh lapitan kita’ kasi that time wala pang final confirmation sa sakit ng pamangkin ko eh.’” Daquis, according to Gonzaga, has been helping her since CV got sick. “Si ate Rachel naman, mula noong nagkasakit si CV, sobrang nagnaga-update na siya sa akin na kung ano ang matutulong niya, gagawa daw siya ng videos para humingi ng tulong sa mga tao,” said Gonzaga. “And ngayong araw nga nagbigay na ako ng go signal kasi magsa-start na ‘yung cycle ng chemo. Sobrang laki pala ng gagastusin, every cycle umaabot na siya ng 100k. Maliban sa chemo madami pa siyang tests kasi mino-monitor ang progress niya.” Gonzaga said that her brother, CV’s father, will open a bank account on Friday where people can deposit their donations and will post the details on her social media account......»»
