PBA: Stanley Pringle awarded first POW for Comm s Cup

Fil-American guard Stanley Pringle chalked up his first Cignal-PBA Press Corps Player of the Week award following his scintillating performance in GlobalPort’s king-sized upset of defending champion San Miguel Beer. The shifty guard out of Penn State churned out all-around numbers of 22 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals, leading the Batang Pier to a 98-94 win over the Beermen last Wednesday. Pringle, fresh from representing the Philippines in the recent 2018 FIBA 3x3 World Cup, saved his best in the final period when he scored eight points, grabbed two rebounds and made a crucial steal that led to a Mo Tautuaa basket in the dying seconds to seal GlobalPort’s fourth win in eight matches. GlobalPort is currently tied for fifth to sixth spots with SMB with the PBA Commissioner’s Cup elimination round heading to its last three weeks. Pringle's sterling effort enabled him to seal his first weekly citation this conference, beating Meralco’s Jared Dillinger and KG Canaleta, Rain or Shine’s James Yap and Beau Belga and Ginebra playmaker LA Tenorio. GlobalPort will have two big games coming up this week, starting with Phoenix on Wednesday, before facing Columbian Dyip two days later—the results of which could determine their playoff fate in the mid-season conference. .....»»

Pringle wants more from Globalport after first win

Globalport just notched its first win in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup, but skipper Stanley Pringle wants to see more effort from his team in the future games. The Batang Pier took the glow out of Rain or Shine with a 78-70 win Friday at Mall of Asia Arena in a game where defense became the all-encompassing theme. In its first two games, Globalport allowed its opponents to score upwards of 100 points and the 70 points the Elasto Painters scored were a testament to the Batang Pier's improved defense. Pringle, though, wants his team to rebound the ball more despite having a slight 59-56 edge over Rain or Shine in that statistical department. "It was a good win, but we need to...Keep on reading: Pringle wants more from Globalport after first win.....»»

Global stifles Rain or Shine to score first win of the season

In a low-scoring affair, it was one player's offense that stood out the most. Stanley Pringle's early-season tear continued Friday at the MOA Arena, leading the Globaport Batang Pier to a 78-70 win over Rain or Shine in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup. Pringle fired 29 points, 20 in the first half, to help the Batang Pier scored their first win of the season against two defeats. Losing an early 14-point lead, Globaport's defense held strong in the fourth, limiting the Elasto Painters to only 14 points to hold on for the win. "Lesson learned yung last two games namin," head coach Pido Jarencio said. "We're giving 109 points per game, pinagusapan namin ng nga players na we have to consider na dumepensa kami and tonight we played good defense," he added. Global got off to a fast start behind Pringle, leadin 19-5 in the first quarter before Rain or Shine settled down and made it a game. The Elasto Painter would take over in the second quarter but the Batang Pier recovered quickly, unloading an 8-0 run to take a 38-33 lead and went to on control the game throughout. After Pringle, Kelly Nabong added 12 points and 13 rebounds for Globalport while Bradwyn Guinto was good for 10 points and nine boards. ROS, who now lost back-to-back games for a 1-2 mark, got 15 points and eight rebounds from Gabe Norwood and another 13 from Mark Borboran.   The Scores: GLOBALPORT 78 - Pringle 29, Nabong 12, Guinto 10, Grey 8, Sargent 8, Gabayni 4, Anthony 3, Flores 2, Elorde 2, Arana 0, Juico 0, Taha 0. RAIN OR SHINE 70 - Norwood 15, Borboran 13, Ahanmisi 10, Belga 8, Nambatac 6, Yap 5, Ponferrada 3, Daquioag 3, Trollano 3, Almazan 2, Maiquez 2,  Quarters: 19-18, 41-35, 58-56, 78-70.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA Season 43 preview: The Pack

Forget the PBA impasse for a second. Seriously, forget it. Why? There are basketball games to be played. That's right, the PBA will push through with the opening of the 43rd season as originally scheduled and before we start what appears to be another long, exciting, stressful (for the good reasons, of course), and eventful year of basketball, let's look at all 12 teams first. We start with "The Pack" in this preview. Special thanks to Alaska's coach Alex Compton for this idea. Okay here we go.   Rain or Shine Elasto Painters PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Quarterfinals Commissioner's Cup - Quarterfinals Governors' Cup - Quarterfinals PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Gabe Norwood Ed Daquioag Jericho Cruz Dexter Maiquez Maverick Ahanmisi Jewel Ponferrada Mark Borboran Chris Tiu James Yap Don Trollano Raymond Almazan Rey Nambatac Beau Belga Ronnie Matias Jeremy King Injured/Reserve: Jay Washington Head coach: Caloy Garcia The Elasto Painters, after losing so many key peices from their championship team in the previous offseason, didn't exactly have a bad year in 2017. ROS made it to the playoffs in each of the three conferences. However, the Painters failed to advance to the semifinals in all three as well. Rain or Shine is a champion team but the transition period for this franchise might be extended unless they can actually sustain their strong starts to conferences.   NLEX Road Warriors PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Missed playoffs Commissioner's Cup - Missed playoffs Governors' Cup - Quarterfinals PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Emman Monfort Michael Miranda Juami Tiongson Jansen Rios Kevin Alas Cyrus Baguio Alex Mallari Larry Fonacier Kiefer Ravena Raul Soyud Kenneth Ighalo Rabeh Al-Hussaini Alfonso Gotladera JR Quinahan Asi Taulava Injured/Reserve: Ronjay Buenafe Head coach: Yeng Guiao It took them a while but the Road Warriors finally figured things out under coach Yeng Guiao. And now with a new star at poing guard plus a another offseason of playing together, this season feels like the actual start of the Yeng Guiao era in NLEX. The Road Warriors have a nice mix of young and veteran talent and they have a champion coach at the helm. The potential is there to make noise in the playoffs.   Phoenix Fuel Masters PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Quarterfinals Commissioner's Cup - Quarterfinals Governors' Cup - Missed playoffs PBA Season 43 opening day line up: LA Revilla Jason Perkins Gelo Alolino JC Intal Joseph Eriobu Justin Chua Marvin Hayes Jeff Chan Doug Kramer Jam Cortez Karl Dehesa Rey Guevarra William Wilson RJ Jazul Matthew Wright Head coach: Louie Alas Phoenix is in it to win it. The Fuel Masters missed the playoffs once for the first time in four conferences and the team literally changed almost their entire coaching staff. Coach Louie Alas will have an interesting squad to work with in his debut season with the team. If Phoenix can avoid a major slide similar to what happened in the 2017 Governors' Cup, expect the Fuel Masters to be featured in the playoff race.   KIA Picanto PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Missed playoffs Commissioner's Cup - Missed playoffs Governors' Cup - Missed playoffs PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Reden Celda Jackson Corpuz JR Reyes Jon Gabriel Philip Paniamogan Rashawn McCarthy Prince Caperal Eric Camson Jan Jamon Pedrito Galanza Roldan Sara Glenn Khobuntin Mark Yee Dylan Ababou Ronald Tubid Head coach: Chris Gavina Kia's unconventional ways will be tested this season. After basically trading away Christian Standhardinger, people will most certainly watch the Picanto to lose. But you never know with this team, they have a brilliant coach and maybe Kia manages to pull off an upset or two this season. Maybe it's not so bad after all. We'll see.   Meralco Bolts PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Missed playoffs Commissioner's Cup - Quarterfinals Governors' Cup - Finals PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Bryan Faundo Mike Tolomia Cliff Hodge Nico Salva Baser Amer Chris Newsome KG Canaleta Garvo Lanete Joseph Sedurifa Anjo Caram Jason Ballesteros Jared Dillinger Reynel Hugnatan Ranidel De Ocampo Mac Baracael Injured/Reserve: Ken Bono Head coach: Norman Black For the past two seasons, Meralco has not performed well in the Philippine Cup. Without an import, the Bolts just shut down for some reason. However, the team can build on a more mature set of locals this time around to make some noise in the All-Filipino. And you already know coach Norman Black is not allowing another All-Filipino collapse from his team.   Blackwater Elite PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Missed playoffs Commissioner's Cup - Missed playoffs Governors' Cup - Quarterfinals PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Mike Cortez Mike Digregorio Ael Banal Roi Sumang JP Erram Mark Cruz John Pinto Mac Belo James Sena Renz Palma Chris Javier Allein Maliksi Dave Marcelo Raymar Jose Kyle Neypes Head coach: Leo Isaac Blackwater has an interesting team. Just looking at their line up from top to bottom, the Elite have all the tools to make a playoff runs this season. Starting with the All-Filipino, Blackwater can finish the job that they failed to do last season. People forget that the Elite, despite missing the playoffs, had a pretty good Philippine Cup last year.   Globalport Batang Pier PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Quarterfinals Commissioner's Cup - Quarterfinals Governors' Cup - Missed playoffs PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Yousef Taha Julian Sargent Stanley Pringle Terrence Romeo Nico Elorde Sean Anthony Micahel Juico Jonathan Gray Ryan Arana Kelly Nabong Lervin Flores Joseph Gabayni Bradwyn Guinto Injured/Reserve: Arnold Van Opstal Head coach: Pido Jarencio Regardless if its Pido Jarencio or Franz Pumaren coaching this team, things will be hard for Globalport if Terrence Romeo continues to miss time. But looking at it from another angle, maybe Stanley Pringle shows us another level to his game and takes the Batang Pier to new heights. However, Globalport fans would feel more comfortable if the Bro recovers according to schedule and makes his debut sooner rather than later.   Alaska Aces PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Quarterfinals Commissioner's Cup - Missed playoffs Governors' Cup - Missed playoffs PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Simon Enciso Chris Banchero Sonny Thoss Calvin Abueva Marion Magat Jake Pascual Jeron Teng Chris Exciminiano Carl Bryan Cruz Abel Galiguez Davon Potts Jvee Casio Kevin Racal Vic Manuel Injured/Reserve: Noy Baclao Head coach: Alex Compton It possibly can't get any worse for Alaska this season. After a down year, the Aces are poised for a bounce back season. If Alaska can re-learn how to finish games, the team can absolutely regain its lofty standing on top of the league. The pieces are there, it's amazing how the Aces lost so many games last season. It cannot get any worse.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

San Miguel, TNT, Ginebra have target on their backs for PBA Philippine Cup

Three-time champion San Miguel is the unanimous team-to-beat as the PBA gears up for its season-opening Philippine Cup. The Beermen were the only ones mentioned by all of the team governors who were asked about the top team in the tournament. “I think it’s still gonna be San Miguel because of its intact lineup,” Meralco alternate governor Ryan Gregorio told reporters in the league’s preseason press conference on Wednesday at the Okada in Paranaque. Indeed, the three-time champions will be parading the same core of four-time MVP June Mar Fajardo, Alex Cabagnot, Marcio Lassiter, Chris Ross, and Arwind Santos. That’s not even counting 2017 PBA Draft top pick Christian Standhardinger who is still fulfilling contractual obligations in the Asean Basketball league. Alaska’s Dickie Bachmann, Blackwater’s Dioceldo Sy, Ginebra’s Alfrancis Chua, Magnolia’s Rene Pardo, NLEX’s Ramoncito Fernandez, Rain or Shine’s Mert Mondragon, TNT’s Magnum Membrere, and even San Miguel’s own Robert Non could only agree with Gregorio. Chua and Pardo, however, explained that the Beermen will not be able to truly take their place as the top team in the tournament as they are yet to have Standhardinger. “SMB, hindi pa malakas yan, wala pa si Standhardinger. Sa second conference pa,” the former said. With that opening for contention, team governors also named Ginebra and TNT as teams to watch. “If you know your basketball, Ginebra ang pipiliin ko,” Pardo said, talking about the Gin Kings of multi-titled mentor Tim Cone, Japeth Aguilar, Joe Devance, Greg Slaughter, LA Tenorio and Scottie Thompson. “Yung TNT, intact yung lineup tapos they also have bigs who can match-up with June Mar,” Non said of the KaTropa mentored by Nash Racela and fronted by Jayson Castro, RR Pogoy, and Kelly Williams. Meanwhile, Terrence Romeo and Stanley Pringle’s Globalport as well as Kevin Alas and Kiefer Ravena’s NLEX are seen as darkhorses in the tournament. The 43rd Season of Asia’s first pay-for-play league commences on December 17 at the Araneta Coliseum. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Nabong gets biggest fine for GlobalPort-Rain or Shine melee

The PBA on Thursday dropped the punishments to those involved in the melee between Rain or Shine and Globalport that saw three ejections and a bloodied Chris Tiu. Globalport center Kelly Nabong received the worst of sanctions as the league slapped him with a P30,000 fine--P20,000 for a flagrant foul 2 and P10,000 for displaying the middle finger. Nabong was ejected with 3:40 left in the Elasto Painters' 96-90 win on May 20 at Smart Araneta Coliseum after getting shoving Rain or Shine guard Maverick Ahanmisi, who was also slapped with a P15,000 fine after pushing down Sean Anthony.

James Yap is PBA 3-point king once again

BATANGAS --- After nine years, James Yap is once again the league's best marksman. The Rain or Shine sniper claimed the Three-Point Shootout title Friday in the 2018 PBA All-Star Week here at Batangas City Sports Center. "I still can do it," Yap sighed after capturing the crown. Making the most of the money balls, Yap drained nine out of the available 10 colored basketballs to wound up with 24 points, missing only his last ball. "Every time I shot the ball, I thought that this is the most important ball. Whenever it goes in, it adds to my confidence," he said. Stanley Pringle finished second with his 21 points, while former champion Terrence Romeo could only get to 16....Keep on reading: James Yap is PBA 3-point king once again.....»»

PBA: Maliksi pressured to defend 3-point crown against loaded list of challengers

BATANGAS CITY, Batangas --- The three-point shootout might just steal the show once again in the main leg of the 2018 PBA All-Star Games. Blackwater's Allein Maliksi is set to defend his title against a loaded cast of challengers Friday. Last year in Lucena, Maliksi beat Ginebra's LA Tenorio with the final money ball. This year's joust has the potential to even top that exciting finish as the league's finest shooters go after the title. “Nakakakaba pa rin kasi siyempre gusto mong ma-defend yung crown,” Maliksi said in an earlier statement. “Ever since naman talaga yung dream ko makasali sa three-point shootout simula nung pumasok ako sa PBA. Kasi sa [slam] dunk hindi naman tayo makasali, lalo ngayon hindi na tayo masyadong makatalon, so sa three-point shootout na lang,” he added. Terrence Romeo hopes to regain the title he lost last season and if the TNT star manages to top everyone, it will be his third 3-point championship in four years. Former champion James Yap is also in the mix while Tenorio is back to try and finish last year's job. The rest of the participants are Marcio Lassiter, Paul Lee, Stanley Pringle, Matthew Wright, Larry Fonacier, Ronald Tubid, and Garvo Lanete. Loaded from top to bottom right? The Three-point shootout will be one of the side events at the Batangas City Sports Center here together with the Slam Dunk Contest and the Obstacle challenge. The 2018 PBA All-Star Games are presented by Phoenix Fuel with Phoenix Pulse Technology and backed by Peak Sports Apparel, Molten, PBA Rush-Cignal, Nature's Spring, TAGHeuer, Gatorade, and Rain or Shine.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Almazan downplays hit, childish antics against White

Rain or Shine center Raymond Almazan downplayed his late-game antics against GlobalPort import Malcolm White in a heated duel won by the Elasto Painters on Sunday. Almazan hit White in the mouth with a forearm with 40. 3 seconds left that nearly triggered another scuffle. "That's just part of the game, of course we can't just let our teammates get hurt like that, and of course he has to respect our league," said Almazan, who was called for a flagrant foul, in Filipino Sunday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. Almazan's dirty play was in retaliation for White's elbow on ROS guard Chris Tiu, who was bloodied with a busted lip.

"We were going back and forth but it wasn't a friendly conversation so I will leave at that."
