Baby Falcons rush through Eaglets to regain solo first

strong>TEAM STANDINGS /strong> br /> Adamson 9-1 br /> FEU-Diliman 8-2 br /> NU 8-2 br /> Ateneo 5-5 br /> DLSZ 3-7 br /> UPIS 3-7 br /> UST 3-7 br /> UE 1-9 Just as the defending champions suffered a setback, Adamson High School took care of business and took another step forward in the UAAP 79 Juniors Basketball Tournament. Encho Serrano pumped in eight of his 15 points in the first quarter and the Baby Falcons got the jump on Ateneo de Manila High School for a wire-to-wire 79-73 win on Saturday at the San Juan Arena. The first-year guard had eight points, just one shy of the Blue Eaglets’ total, in the first 10 minutes. He and Jason Celis connived for all but 10 points in Adamson’s 25-point opening salvo. The other Baby Falcons only followed suit and their lead remained above the 20-point marker after three quarters. Still, SJ Belangel kept things interesting for Ateneo and scored 11 of his 18 points in the final frame. However, it all proved to be too little too late as Adamson surged right back onto the league-lead now at 9-1. Little-known Rence Padrigao also made noise with 13 points for the Baby Falcons who once again gained separation from defending champion Nazareth School of National University who lost earlier and slipped to 8-2. On the other hand, the Eaglets’ tough luck against the tournament’s top three teams continued. Their record now stands at 5-5 – with all of their losses coming against the Baby Falcons, the Bullpups, and Far Eastern University-Diliman. In other results, University of Sto. Tomas dashed the playoff hopes of University of the Philippines Integrated School once again via a 93-81 victory. Jan Narvasa and Cris Cansino scored 22 points apiece to lift the Tiger Cubs to 3-7, the same record as the Junior Maroons.

TNT and Phoenix face separate foes as playoff race heats up

Five teams currently have 4-4 records in the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup. At the end of Wednesday, two teams will break away from that logjam, for better or for worse. TNT and Phoenix face separate foes at the Cuneta Astrodome in hopes of trying to improve their respective playoff campaigns. The struggling KaTropa take the floor first against a confident Mahindra (2-5) squad at 4:15 p.m. with the Floodbuster looking to make in three in a row and solidify their own case for a quarterfinals slot. Since scoring a Christmsa breakthrough, Mahindra has carried on in 2017 and facing a vulnerable TNT squad, a team that has lost two straight, seems like the perfect opportunity for the Floodbuster to keep turning their campaign around. In the second game, Phoenix looks to jump back on the winning track as the Fuel Masters take on NLEX at 7:00 p.m. Despite an impressive outing against TNT, the Road Warriors failed to get anything going after falling short to Globalport, dropping their record to 2-6. The Fuel Masters meanwhile go for a strong finish after suffering a hiccup vs. Rain or Shine. .....»»

Wizards get hot from beyond the arc to beat Trail Blazers

em>By Stephen Whyno, Associated Press /em> WASHINGTON (AP) — Bradley Beal scored 25 points and John Wall had 24 as the Washington Wizards took a page from the Portland Trail Blazers' playbook by hitting 13 3-pointers in a comfortable 120-101 victory on Monday afternoon (Tuesday, PHL time). The Wizards, who rely less on the three-pointer than almost any NBA team, were 13-of-23 from beyond the arc in their 12th consecutive home victory. The three-pointer-heavy Trail Blazers shot 8-of-26 on three-point attempts. After Washington coach Scott Brooks called Portland guards Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum as good as any backcourt in the league, Beal and John Wall outplayed them. Lillard led the Blazers with 22 points and McCollum had 12, but they combined to shoot 11-of-29 from the floor. The Wizards have won four of their last five games. On the final day of All-Star voting, Wall put on show by dunking over Mason Plumlee and hitting a step-back three-pointer from the top of the arc. He finished 10-of-17 and Beal was 7-of-11, including 3-of-3 from three-point territory. Washington opened the game shooting 4-of-5 to jump ahead 10-0 and led by 30 after Marcin Gortat's layup with 4:24 left in the third quarter. Portland cut it as close as 17 in the fourth, forcing Wall and Beal back on the floor, but lost its second game in a row. strong>MLK DAY /strong> Wearing a shirt with the message: 'His dream inspired the world. Never stop dreaming,' Beal took the microphone to address the crowd of 17,395 on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Brooks said he always stops by the MLK Memorial during his walks around the National Mall. Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts said about half the team went to the National Museum of African American History and Culture after practice Monday (Tuesday, PHL time). 'It's a little sobering, the African-American experience in this country and also celebrating the contributions of the African-American community,' Stotts said. strong>TIP-INS /strong> em> strong>Trail Blazers: /strong> /em>McCollum's streak of consecutive games with 25-plus points ended at eight. He became the eighth player to score 1,000 points this season, joining Russell Westbrook, James Harden, DeMar DeRozan, Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, Kevin Durant and Isaiah Thomas. F Maurice Harkless, who was questionable with a left calf injury, was 0 of 5 with no points. F Ed Davis, who had a left ankle injury, played just five minutes and scored two points. em> strong>Wizards: /strong> /em>Improved to 10-2 when F Otto Porter has at least three triples.. Their 37 first-quarter and 75 first-half points are season-highs. Their last 12-game home winning streak came in 1989 as the Bullets. F Markieff Morris had 17 points and 13 rebounds for his third double-double of the season. Kelly Oubre's 18 points were one shy of his career-high. strong>UP NEXT /strong> em> strong>Trail Blazers: /strong> /em> Visit the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time). em> strong>Wizards: /strong> /em>Look to extend their home winning streak to 13 when they host the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time). .....»»

Alaska, TNT shoot for share of 2nd vs. different foes

Finding their groove following a slow start, the Alaska Aces set their sights on a share of second place as they battle struggling Blackwater Sunday in the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup at the Big Dome. Winners of four of their last five games, Calvin Abueva and the rest of the Aces (4-3) go for win number five, putting them in a tie with idle Rain or Shine and Globalport for the league's second-best record. In order to do so, they'll have to get past a hungry Elite side looking to bounce back after suffering a pair of tough defeats. Since zooming to a 4-2 start, Blackwater has dropped back to .500 basketball, barely holding on to one of the eight playoff spots as of posting time. The Elite's matchup with the Aces is set at 4:30 p.m. at the Araneta Coliseum. In the second game, TNT KaTropa (4-3) also shoot for a share of second place against a Star (3-4) team that lost all momentum from their recent three-game run. Losing their first game of 2017 against sister team NLEX, the KaTropa look to jump back on the win column as the flagship MVP franchise continue to chase a playoff bonus. Gametime is set at 6:45 p.m.   .....»»
