Manuel brushes off BPC talks, stays focused on team goal

Alaska forward Vic Manuel has been tearing up the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup. On Sunday, Manuel has hit at least 20 points for the eighth straight time, which is the longest since Terrence Romeo scored nine consecutive 20-point games in the 2016 Philippine Cup. Manuel's performance makes him a prime candidate for the Best Player of the Conference award, but individual honors do not entice the forward in any way whatsoever. "No, no, no, I'm not even thinking about it," said Manuel in Filipino after their 89-74 loss to the Bolts Sunday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. "Our goal right now is to make the playoffs and get to the semifinals." "If we're lucky, we might get back to th...Keep on reading: Manuel brushes off BPC talks, stays focused on team goal.....»»

Japeth, Romeo lead netizens’ Gilas 3x3 Dream Team; Lassiter, Rosario complete cast

Japeth Aguilar headlined ABS-CBN Sports’ recent poll of Filipino netizens’ Filipino Dream Team for a 3x3 tournament following Gilas Pilipinas’ gallant stand at the 2018 FIBA 3x3 World Cup. The Ginebra forward led all candidates with 28 mentions on our Facebook and Twitter polls as of 11:30 AM, while TNT star and 3x3 fan favorite Terrence Romeo was close behind with 26 combined votes. San Miguel gunner Marcio Lassiter and KaTropa Troy Rosario, a member of the recent Pinoy 3x3 squad at the FIBA World Cup, were tied at 20 to complete the dream squad. Two high-scoring swingmen, and two mobile bigs who can stretch the floor while gobbling up those rebounds is definitely a good combination for 3x3’s electric style of play. The current iteration of the Pinoy 3X3 squad was the strongest one yet,  made up of Christian Standhardinger, RR Pogoy, Stanley Pringle, and Troy Rosario but fell just short of qualifying into the next round of eliminations of the 2018 FIBA 3X3 World Cup, but the host squad put up a good fight, even stunning no. 6 Brazil in the Filipinos’ lone win in the tournament. How would you think the 'new' squad will fare? Barely missing the cut is rejuvenated Alaska big man Vic Manuel, who amassed a total of 19 points in the online poll. San Miguel center and four-time MVP June Mar Fajardo garnered 16 votes to place sixth, while Stanley Pringle and Calvin Abueva were tied at 14 mentions each. Beermen Arwind Santos (12) and Christian Standhardinger (11) round out the top 10 of the poll. POLL: After Gilas Pilipinas' gallant stand in the FIBA #3X3WC...

Maghihintay lang ako dito [for Marck] -- Kianna Dy

We've heard Marck Espejo's side of the question. Now it's Kianna Dy's turn. It's never easy once a couple goes into a long-distance relationship. May it be due to work, travel, immigration, or any other cause, not being physically there for your special someone will take a lot of courage, determination, and of course, love. The UAAP Season 78 women's volleyball Finals MVP said that she is willing to wait for the five-time UAAP MVP as he makes history by joining Oita Miyoshi Weisse Adler, one of the teams of the V1 League, Japan's premier volleyball circuit. "Napag-usapan naman na," Espejo then said about the couple's talk about the move. "Syempre supportive naman siya and alam niya naman na ito talaga yung gusto ko. And alam ko naman na pupuntahan niya ako dun," he added. While we won't be seeing Espejo until a good chunk of 2019 had passed, Dy, who was in the DLSU Lady Spikers' meet-and-greet at the Henry Sy Sr. Hall of the DLSU Taft Campus last Saturday, she said a special message that brought kilig for you and me. "I'm super proud of him, because I think it's the first time that a Filipino is going to play [in the Japanese league], and is considered to be an import. Super proud of him. He's making his mark internationally, so I'll support him and maghihintay lang ako dito," KKD said with a big smile on her face. KKD on Marck Espejo's Japan stint: "I'm super proud." Also: "Maghihintay lang ako dito."@abscbnsports — Philip Martin Matel (@philipptionary) June 9, 2018 Leaving Taft as a three-time champion, Dy also left a message for the incoming and aspiring Lady Spikers, who eventually will be part of the hunt in pursuing the team's 12th title. "Mag-tiyaga lang kayo and you know that it won't be easy. But you have to work hard. Patience lang. Patience sa teammates, patience kay Coach. Makuha nyo rin ang championship." Dy, who came in late due to graduation practice also thanked the hundreds of supporters, who braved the unpleasant weather and came to the campus to show support for their beloved team. KKD gets greeted by rousing greeting from fans who braved terrible weather. Kianna came in late from grad practice. @abscbnsports pic.twitter.com/bWOz4mCHry — Philip Martin Matel (@philipptionary) June 9, 2018 "Sobrang thankful ako kasi pumunta sila [sa Grand Fans' day'] ang sama pa naman ng weather.

French and Filipino cinephiles unite

In a time of suffering and strife, cinema's role becomes all the more crucial in building a progressive and inclusive society. Nicolas Galey, France's ambassador to the Philippines, told the Inquirer: "The root of many conflicts all over the world is intolerance and the failure to accept different beliefs, traditions and values. Cinema is a medium that promotes understanding among different people and cultures. It is a way of opening minds." With this principle in mind, the Embassy of France to the Philippines continues to spearhead the French Film Festival, now on its 23rd year.

At 73, Efren Bata Reyes wants to keep going: Hanggang pwede pa, pwede pa

Browse long enough through the Pinoy side of YouTube and you will likely come across dozens, if not hundreds of grainy videos of a man they fondly call 'Bata' attempting, and nailing undescribable shots on the pool table. The term 'pool artist' has been the umbrella term used to refer to billiard players worldwide but Efren 'Bata' Reyes has certainly given justice to the moniker.  And for exactly those types of shots, and his success in formal competition, the Asian Cultural Alliance has bestowed Reyes the Lifetime Achievement Award in Las Vegas, Nevada. The living legend was honored for the most part, because of his overall effect on the sport as one of the most decorated players from Asia, and possibly the world. "We wanted to celebrate Efren [with] the first Asian Culture Achievement Award for him, spreading the joy of pool," said Ken Hsi, head of the organization. While Bata isn't new to hoisting trophies and garnering awards from both local and international tournaments, (he's actually a recipient of the Order of Lakandula award, the highest honor in the Philippines, and is part of the Philippine Legion of Honor) this one was special for the 73-year-old pool artist as it is the first citation he has received in Las Vegas.  Being recognized as an international icon in the entertainment capital of the world is just an achievement fit for a generational talent like Reyes, and he's taking his sweet time in relishing it. "Biro mo... dito pa ko nabigyan ng Lifetime Achievement Award, dito pa sa Las Vegas, hindi doon sa atin," Reyes said. Vivian Villareal, a 15-time women's champion in the pros, had nothing but praise for the Filipino legend.  "Efren is one of a kind. He is The Magician. Nobody can do what he can do," she said. It's the lasting and wide-reaching effect of Bata's game that makes his legend stand out even further. And even after nearly seven decades, retirement still isn't an option for Reyes. "Pwede pa kong maglaro eh," Reyes said. "Ewan ko, baka next year or susunod na year na. Basta [kapag] hindi na kaya ng kamay ko, mag-reretire na ko." "Hanggang pwede pa, pwede pa," Bata added. True to his word, 'Bata' will be in New Orleans, Louisianan to compete at the Buffalo Pro One Classic from May 24-27 and plans to join other internatioinal tournaments this year. There's just no stopping The Magician. With a report from Bev Llorente, ABS-CBN News North American Bureau......»»

Almadro asks for prayers amid appointment as Lady Eagles’ coach

Oliver Almadro, the current head coach of the Ateneo men's volleyball program, has reportedly been appointed as the new chief of the Lady Eagles' bench. In a text to Inquirer, Almadro, however, refused to confirm the reports yet, preferring to wait until Ateneo makes an official announcement. "Until Ateneo makes an official announcement I cannot disclose anything from my side," said Almadro in Filipino. The affable mentor, though, asked for prayers with things still not official. "I hope you guys include me in your prayers that I am worthy." Almadro will replace Tai Bundit, the architect of Ateneo's championship-winning teams in Season 76 and 77.

Elite 60’s two Visayan standouts are newest Batang Gilas players

The Elite 60 Development Camp has officially taken a step forward in the direction where it wants to be. The program concluded its second annual training camp last Sunday at the Colegio San Agustin Gym in Makati and named the first two players it will be boosting up into the Batang Gilas pool. Steve Nash Enriquez from University of Visayas is the headliner as his all-around brilliance caught the eye of just about everybody. “Yung talent niya, yung play all throughout the camp, talagang stand out e. He reminds me a lot of how Terrence Romeo plays kaya ang laki ng potential ng bata,” program assistant director Anton Altamirano said. The 5-foot-7 guard is the prototypical Filipino guard – what he gives up in size, he makes up for in height. That is why he was hailed as the Elite 60’s Best Camper. Also part of the training camp’s Mythical 5 alongside Enriquez is his fellow Visayan Harold Alarcon of Tay Tung High School as well as Filipino-Australian Royce Mantua. Six-foot-one guard Alarcon just continued opening eyes in the four-day camp much like he did in the 2018 National Basketball Training Center National Finals last March. “We all know he could score, but what he showed during the camp was how he could also take charge,” the program assistant director said. Meanwhile, Mantua, a 6-foot-2 swingman, is seen to be nothing but valuable for Batang Gilas in international play. “I was talking to (Batang Gilas assistant) coach Josh Reyes and yun ang players na gusto nila – long, agile players who can defend. Ang laki pa ng potential niya to grow and get better,” Altamirano said. The three are just the first instances of the Elite 60’s fulfilment of its objective to identify and then integrate young talent into the Batang Gilas pool. “This is a good sign and good step towards the future development ng players natin. We’re doing something right kasi yung mga players natin dito will now get a call up sa Batang Gilas,” the son of multi-titled mentor Eric Altamirano shared. He then continued, “Yun naman talaga ang goal dito – to give (players over the country) to represent the country.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Pinoy boxer Romero Duno returns to the ring against Gilberto Gonzales

Filipino boxer "Ruthless" Romero Duno will look to continue his path towards a world championship when he makes his return to the ring this coming May 17th against Mexico's Gilberto Gonzales at the Fantasy Springs Resort and Casino in Indio, California.  The 22-year old Duno (16-1, 14 KO), a Cotabato City native who fights under the Golden Boy Promotions banner, is coming off a first-round knockout win over Yardley Armenta Cruz back in January.  Against Gonzales, Duno faces a more experienced fighter, having a 26-4 professional record with 22 wins coming via knockout.  "Ready na ako, pero kailangan mag-bawas ng timbang kaunti," Duno, who's training out of the world-famous Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles told ABS-CBN News' Steve Angeles. "Pinag-hahandaan ko pa mga technique, pinag-aaralan namin ni coach ang pag-laban sa kanya, yung mga technique para patas ang suntok ko sa kanya." Duno adds that the taller Gonzales poses a unique challenge given his punching power and unusual stance.  "Pinag-hahandaan namin yung mga malakas na suntok kasi yung kalaban ko, malakas, medyo matangkad at magaling din siya mag-boxing. Yung style niya medyo kakaiba rin kasi nag-chechange yung stance niya, yan ang pinag-hahandaan namin ni coach."  Helping Duno out in camp is kababayan Mercito Gesta, who also last fought on the same card as Duno back in January. Gesta challenged Jorge Linares for the WBA Lightweight World Championship, losing via unanimous decision after 12 rounds.  Gesta has crossed paths with Duno's opponent before, picking up a ten-round unanimous decision win back in early 2017.  For Duno's part, he says that he'd rather not have Gonzales go the distance with him in their upcoming bout.  "Gusto ko hindi paabutin ng ten rounds. Gusto ko lamangan." Duno said.  Duno and Gonzales will headline a special Thursday evening card by Golden Boy Promotions.    H/T: Steve Angeles, ABS-CBN News.....»»

Etheridge makes return to Premier League with Cardiff

Filipino international goalkeeper Neil Etheridge completed his remarkable rise from England's lower leagues back to the English Premier League (EPL) on Sunday after his club, Cardiff City, earned promotion following a goal-less draw with Reading in Cardiff, Wales. But unlike his first stint in the EPL with Fulham where he climbed the ranks from the academy to back up goalkeeper, Etheridge makes his return to the top flight as Cardiff's bonafide starter, having played 45 of the club's 46 league matches, keeping 19 clean sheets in the English Championship.
