Robins ascend to solo lead as CSB-LSGH is upset by Baste

strong>STANDINGS /strong> br /> Malayan 11-2 br /> CSB-LSGH 10-3 br /> Letran 8-5 br /> San Beda 8-5 br /> San Sebastian 6-6 br /> Arellano 6-7 br /> LPU 6-7 br /> Perpetual 4-8 br /> JRU 4-9 br /> EAC 1-12 Game in and game out, Malayan High School of Science is being challenged in its title defense in the NCAA 93 Juniors Basketball Tournament. On Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, the latest challenge came from their much-improved neighboring rival Colegio de San Juan de Letran. And still, the Red Robins proved to have more than enough for a well-fought 81-76 win against the Squires in overtime. Randy Alcantara’s boys actually found themselves trailing most of the time as Letran showcased all that led it to a six-game winning streak heading into the game. “Good win sa amin kasi kami naman naghahabol from the start e,” the head coach said. Little by little, however, Malayan clawed themselves back into the matchup and by the final frame, the two teams were even. “Credit sa mga bata kasi binigay nila lahat nila,” Alcantara said. With the tally tied after four periods, the two teams needed overtime to settle the score. There, the Robins’ championship experience came through as Will Gozum’s block led to a fastbreak layup for Joaqui Garcia and another defensive stop led to Clint Escamis’ slash-to-score for a 78-74 lead with 36.4 ticks to go. Lakksman Ganapathy kept things interesting for the Squires, but was immediately answered by Gozum’s inside basket. Not long after, Malayan was celebrating its rise to a league-leading 11-2 standing. “Malayo pa ‘to. Ang focus pa rin muna namin, makuha yung twice-to-beat,” Alcantara said. In the end, Gozum had 10 points, 21 rebounds, and seven blocks; Garcia had 11 points and four assists; and Escamis had 19 points, 10 rebounds, and three assists. Topping the scoring column was Carl Lacap who had 21 markers to his name. Those four were more than enough to put down the Squires. Even with the loss, however, the gallant stand should be a source of pride for a squad that was not even mentioned among contenders a season ago. With an 8-5 record, Letran stays at the third spot. The defending champions are now alone atop the leaderboard after College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills found itself at the wrong end of an upset by San Sebastian College-Recoletos. Damie Cuntapay towered above all for 16 points and 14 rebounds to lift the Staglets over the erstwhile pacesetting Junior Blazers, 71-67. A total of four players were in double-digit scoring in San Sebastian’s fourth win in a row and sixth overall in 12 games. They now stand in solo fifth. Inand Fornilos had eight points and 11 rebounds, but neither he nor his fellow frontcourt players were a match for Cuntapay. Joel Cagulangan had 16 points and six assists to show the way for the Junior Blazers who were forced to take a step back onto a 10-3 standing, still good for solo second. Meanwhile, San Beda High School stayed on the right track after avenging its loss to Jose Rizal High School, 70-69. Evan Nelle topped the scoring column with 19 points to make sure the Red Cubs did not suffer another shocker against the Light Bombers. More importantly, the win pushed San Beda into a streak and onto an 8-5 record. Just right behind them, however, and still fighting for a spot in the Final Four are Arellano High School and Lyceum of the Philippines University following separate wins. The Braves whipped Emilio Aguinaldo College, 81-70, on the back of MVP leader Aaron Fermin who yet again posted monster numbers of 25 points, 23 rebounds, and four blocks. It was a much-needed win for Arellano which had been on a three-game slide, but now improves to 6-7. Tying them for the sixth spot are the Junior Pirates who weathered University of Perpetual Help, 74-72. Vincent Cunanan had 20 points, 13 rebounds, and three steals and teamed up with Mac Guadana who had 12 markers, seven boards, and three pilfers. All of Baste, Arellano, and LPU remain within striking distance of two of the last four spots in the Final Four. Their respective losses dropped the Junior Altas to 4-8, the Light Bombers to 4-9, and the Brigadiers to 1-12.

Federer, Nadal happy to play doubles, Borg to decide

em>By Karel Janicek, Associated Press /em> PRAGUE (AP) — With Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal at the Laver Cup team tennis tournament, expectations are running high about the chance of seeing the two as doubles partners. The three-day competition at the O2 Arena in Prague starts Friday, pitting a team of the best six European players against the top six from the rest of the world. No ATP rankings points will be awarded. Alexander Zverev, Marin Cilic, Dominic Thiem and Tomas Berdych are also on the European team to face Sam Querrey, John Isner, Nick Kyrgios, Jack Sock, Denis Shapovalov and Frances Tiafoe. The tournament is to honor Rod Laver, an 11-time major champion who won two calendar-year Grand Slams. It will include three singles and one doubles match every day. Bjorn Bjorg captains Europe while John McEnroe does the same for the opponents. Federer and Nadal were clear about their choice of a possible partner. 'I've played a lot against Rafa on so many occasions, in big matches,' Federer said at Prague's picturesque Old Town Square. 'I think in nine Grand Slam finals. Finally, to have him on my side it's a joy. We talked about playing doubles a long, long time ago. It never happened. Of course, I would love to share the side of the net this time around. We have to see how practice goes and then at the end Bjorn will take the ultimate decision.' Nadal concurred. 'Of course, I would love (to play with Federer),' Nadal said. 'It will be amazing if that happens. We've talked about that years ago to play in some tournament together. It didn't happen yet. We're looking forward to playing here, hopefully. Let's see if the captain allows us to play.' Borg has yet to decide how to form pairs for doubles, but suggested 'there's a very good chance' for Federer and Nadal. 'He's the captain, he's the boss here now,' Nadal said. 'I am just here to try my best, every time the captain wants me on court, I am just here to try to help the team to win the Laver Cup.' Federer warned a victory was not a given even though the two are currently ranked No. 1 (Nadal) and No. 2 (Federer). 'There's a lot of expectations and everybody thinks we're going to win and play together then we bomb out,' Federer said. 'So, we better make sure we focus on just playing good doubles and if it works together at the same time, that'd be great. 'I'm sure that the crowd would go absolutely crazy.' .....»»

Dondon Hontiveros quietly retires from the PBA

ANTIPOLO --- One of the best shooters the Philippines has ever seen is finally calling it quits. After 17 years in the Philippine Basketball Association, Cebuano Hotshot Dondon Hontiveros is calling it a career, playing his final game for the Alaska Aces Wednesday at the Ynares Center here. His final performance? A quiet two points and four rebounds in just over 21 minutes of play. Don't let that fool you though, Hontiveros was a bad, bad man in the PBA and is truly an all-time great. As a direct hire for Tanduay in the year 2000, Hontiveros' PBA career would take off after he joined the San Miguel Beermen two years later. As the premier shooter for the PBA's winningest franchise, Hontiveros would turn into a consistent All-Star in the league and was a member of the national team in 2002 and 2007. Dondon would also win two championships with the Beermen before he was shipped to Air 21 in 2011. He would briefly return to the San Miguel franchise later in the year and would later find himself playing for Alaska by 2012. Hontiveros would play out the rest of his career with the Aces, winning one final championship in 2013. He's also fourth in the all-time list for most 3-point shots made in PBA history behind only Jimmy Alapag, Allan Caidic, and Ronnie Magsanoc. While there's still chances that another team might try to sign him, Hontiveros is perfectly content with his decision now to walk away from the game of basketball. He says his focus now is to be there for his son. 'Right now, ine-enjoy ko muna yung moment with my teammates and reflect on what I have learned, and what I think I can improve on as a leader, as a teammate, or as a friend,' the 40-year-old Hontiveros said. 'Kung ano man natutunan ko ngayon, swerte ako may anak ako na ite-train ko,' he added. With almost two decades spent in the Association. Hontiveros admits that the championships are the ones that he will miss most. Those and playing for the Philippines of course. He was part of the Gilas Pilipinas program and made the team in 2011 and 2015. “There’s too many to mention, pero I guess one of those yung championships, kasi hindi mo talaga ma-ano yun. Other than that, I guess, as a player, being part of the national team,' he said. 'It’s really different to play for the national team, to represent the country. I’m lucky to be able to do that,' Hontiveros added. Asked regarding what's next, Hontiveros says that he'd still like to stay close to basketball althought it might be hard to actually figure out what to do now that's his daily routine will change drastically. 'On a daily basis, iba na yung routine. Pero there’s always something to look forward to,' he said.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

Lim bags jiu jitsu silver for PHI's second medal in AIMAG

ASHGABAT, Turkmenistan – Jiu-Jitsu fighter Marc Alexander Lim fell short in his bid to win a gold medal after he sustained a 2-0 loss to Talib Saleh Mohamed Sale Alkirbi of United Arab Emirates in the 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games (AIMAG) Monday night at the Ashgabat Olympic Complex here. Lim, a purple belter, was on top of his black-belter opponent majority of their six-minute encounter in the -65kg men's Ne-Waza. The 20-year-old native of Davao City had a few chances of forcing Alkirbi into submission but failed to capitalize on his opportunities. In the final moments of the match, however, Alkirbi was able to escape Lim’s stronghold and got better positioning to score the crucial points in the last 17 seconds for the gold medal of the match held at the Martial Arts Indoor Arena. Lim settled with the silver medal, the first for Team Philippines competing here in AIMAG, and second medal overall after Alvin Lobriguito earned a bronze in freestyle traditional wrestling. “It would have nice to have ended it with a win, or at least 0-0 (referee’s decision),” Lim said. “I’m very happy to have delivered a medal, but I would have been happier if it’s a gold, so I can’t really say that I’m happy with the silver.” The 25-year-old Lobriguito got the luck of the draw in his category where there were just seven entries. In his lone match, he suffered a 4-0 defeat to host nation’s Yakupnazar Yakubow in the semifinals. In comparison, Lim went through five tough assignments to make it to the finals – where Alkirbi proved to be a difficult match “I have to learn from it. It’s actually my third time fighting him. He’s the only guy that I bumped in to that I have beaten yet. I’m getting closer and closer every time. In jiu-jitsu there’s a belt system… he’s a black belt, I’m purple belt,” said Lim, who lost twice to his UAE foe in previous international meets. “I look up to him because he teaches me lessons, I learn a lot from him. I’ll get him one of these days,” Lim added. Lim’s silver medal finish was still something to celebrate after other athletes suffered defeats, including three taekwondo jins in the quarterfinalists, namely Karen Cells, Jenar Torillas and Samuel Thomas Morrison at the Taekwondo Indoor Arena. Also losing Monday night was veteran long jumper Marestella Torres-Sunang, who placed fifth overall in the long jump event won by Kazakhstan’s Olga Rypakova at the Indoor Athletics Arena. On Tuesday morning, Eric Cray topped his heat in the 60meter run to enter the semifinals at the Indoor Athletics Arena. The reigning Asian Athletics 400m winner skipped Monday’s 60m hurdles to focus on 60m with hopes of delivering a medal later in the evening. Mervin Guarte, on the other hand, failed to qualify in the semifinals of the 1500m. Still competing at press time were Rio Olympics silver medalist Hidilyn Diaz, as well as fellow weightlifters Dessa delos Santos, Ann Ando and Kristel Macrohon. Cue artists Efren “Bata” Reyes, Francisco “Django” Bustamante, Dennis Orcullo, Jefrey Roda and Carlo Biado were also competing late Tuesday afternoon. .....»»

Naghihintay pa kami ng kapalit ni coach Jerry Yee -- Carlos

The University of the Philippines has yet to name a new coach almost a month after head coach Jerry Yee decided to quit his post after four seasons. The Lady Maroons are still sticking with the system left behind by Yee, who handled the Diliman-based squad.      “Sa ngayon kasi wala pang sinasabi (na papalit),” said third year player Diana Carlos on Monday after UP’s 25-19, 25-13, 25-19, win against listless College of St. Benilde on Monday in Group B of the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. “Sa ngayon more training and naghihintay kami kung sino ang papalit kay coach,” she added. The Lady Maroons scored their second straight win in three outings to keep their semifinals hopes alive. Carlos said that their five-set loss to the unbeaten Adamson University in their tournament debut was an eye-opener for the team.  “Talo kami sa Adamson hindi naman sa inaano ko (ang Adamson) pero yung skills kasi namin. Tinalo kami ng sarili naming,” she recalled. “Sa fifth set six straight points di kami gumalaw. Siyempre nagising kami kaya kailangan naming bumawi talaga.” UP remains in the thick of the battle for the two best-of-three semifinals slots. The Lady Maroons’s last two assignments are against San Beda College (2-1) on Saturday and Arellano University (3-1) on Sep. 30.    “Siyempre sobrang important kasi alam natin ang San Beda at Arellano mga nagta-top 4 sa NCAA ‘yan eh,” said Carlos. “Wala namang pinagkaiba ang NCAA sa UAAP eh. Kailangan lang naming mag-focus at mindset talaga.”     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

Lady Maroons fan semis hopes in sweep of Lady Blazers

University of the Philippines showed listless College of St. Benilde the exit door in the race for a semifinals berth with a 25-19, 25-13, 25-19, win on Monday in Group B of the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Lady Maroons notched their second win in three outings tied with idle San Beda College and Arellano University, which is still playing the also-ran Technological Institute of the Philippines as of posting time. Diana Carlos scored 14 points coming off 12 attacks and a pair of kill blocks while adding six excellent receptions on defense for UP. Marian Buitre finished with 10 markers while Isa Molde and Justine Dorog combined for 16 points for the Lady Maroons, who nailed 38 spikes and had eight kill blocks that silenced CSB to only 15 attacks overall. 'Tingin ko maganda kasi ang game ng team ngayon eh. Everyone played good. Gumana ang mga plays namin kaya medyo lumamang kami sa CSB,' said Carlos. 'Ginawa namin ang mga plays namin na pina-practice namin sa training, nalabas namin sa game.' 'Mindset talaga. Sinabi namin na wag kaming magpa-kompiyansa so focus lang and laruin namin ang laro namin,' she added.    UP dominated the duel, pulling away early to dictate the tempo as errors and weak control of the first ball continued to plague the Lady Blazers in the first two frames. CSB mounted a huge rally in the third set to cut down an 8-19 deficit to 19-21. But three straight errors by the Lady Blazers did them in before UP setter Rose Cailing sealed the victory with a heady drop ball.   The Taft-based squad dropped its third straight game in as many outings tied with TIP. Ranya Musa, Marites Pablo and Diame Ventura scored four points each for the Lady Blazers.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

Golovkin and Alvarez fight to a brutal draw; rematch to come

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Gennady Golovkin retained his middleweight titles Saturday night, fighting to a draw with Canelo Alvarez in a brutal battle that ended with both fighters with their hands aloft in victory. The middleweight showdown lived up to its hype as the two fighters traded huge punches and went after each other for 12 rounds. Neither fighter was down and neither appeared seriously hurt but both landed some huge punches to the head that had the crowd screaming in excitement. Golovkin was the aggressor throughout and landed punches that had put other fighters to the canvas. But he couldn't put Alvarez down, and the Mexican star more than stood his own in exchanges with Triple G, from Kazakhstan. The two were still brawling as the final seconds ticked down and the fight went to the scorecards. One judge had Alvarez winning 118-110, a second had it 115-113 in Golovkin's favor while the third had it 114-114. The Associated Press scored it 114-114. Golovkin, who has never lost in 38 fights, retained his middleweight titles with the draw. But Alvarez showed that he could not only take Golovkin's punches but land telling punches of his own. A frenzied crowd of 22,358 at the T-Mobile Arena roared throughout the fight as the two middleweights put on the kind of show that boxing purists had anticipated. They brawled, used sharp jabs and counter-punched at times, with neither one willing to give the other much ground. 'Congratulations all my friends from Mexico,' Golovkin said. 'I want a true fight. I want a big drama show.' There was plenty of drama late in the fight as Alvarez seemed to rally and rocked Golovkin with uppercuts and big right hands. But just as soon as he landed he often took one back from the slugger so feared that most other fighter avoided him. br /> 'I won seven-eight rounds easily,' Alvarez said. It was a battle from the opening bell as Golovkin tried to walk Alvarez down but often found himself getting hit from sharp counter punches. 'Today, people give me draw. I focus on boxing,' Golovkin said. 'Look my belts, I'm still champion. I've not lost.' Golovkin predicted before the fight that the late rounds would resemble a street fight, and in a way they did. Both fighters were willing to trade, and both had no problems landing hard shots to the head. Golovkin had chased Alvarez for nearly two years, trying to get the signature fight that would pay him millions and make him a pay-per-view draw on his own. Alvarez finally agreed after Golovkin looked vulnerable earlier this year against Daniel Jacobs in a decision win that stopped his knockout streak at 23 fights. br />   .....»»

It was a battle from the opening bell as Golovkin tried to walk Alvarez down but often found himself getting hit from sharp counter punches. 'Today, people give me draw. I focus on boxing,' Golovkin said. 'Look my belts, I'm still champion. I've not lost.' Golovkin predicted before the fight that the late rounds would resemble a street fight, and in a way they did.
