UAAP VOLLEYBALL: Pons cherishes first opening day win

Bernadeth Pons bore witness to Far Eastern University’s season-opening woes. Now on her last playing year with the Lady Tamaraws, the graduating open hitter made sure that the drought would end Sunday.     Pons provided an all-around effort to will the Morayta-based squad to a thrilling 19-25, 25-21, 18-25, 25-20, 15-9, victory over Ateneo de Manila University in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the MOA Arena.       The star spiker delivered down the stretch, scoring 14 points with 12 off attacks while playing a vital role on FEU’s floor defense with 16 excellent receptions and 13 digs.  The victory snapped the five-year, opening day win drought of the Lady Tams. FEU’s last first game win was against University of the East back in Season 74. “Sobrang happy. Napag-usapan din namin noong last set na in my past four years sa UAAP never pa kaming nanalo ng first game sa UAAP, ito pa lang ang first time sa pang fifth year ko na,” said Pons. But the chance of clinching a debut match win looked bleak when FEU went behind, 1-2, in the match. Working with Toni Rose Basas and Celine Domingo, Pons led the Lady Tams' blazing run in the fourth set to force a deciding frame. FEU went into trouble early in the fifth frame, 1-6, before shocking the stunned Lady Eagles with a blistering rally. Pons pounded the down the line kills that pushed the Lady Tams at match point, 14-9.           “So napag-usapan namin na hopefully mangyari siya (opening day win) ngayon, ayun nangyari naman,” she said. “A win is a win pa rin although madami pa rin kaming sobrang daming mga errors and lapses pero good thing naman is naka-recover kami,” Pons added. “Medyo slow start, I don’t know, good thing lang naka-recover.” As an added bonus, the win ended FEU's losing slump to Ateneo since the second round of Season 75.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA: JJ Domingo s breakout performance gives CSB sigh of relief

"Ooh! Sa wakas, nabuhay ka rin!" That's how CSB Blazers coach TY Tang opened the post-game press conference as his longest-tenured player JJ Domingo finally showed up for the first time this season. Domingo, who is playing in his fourth season with the squad, had himself a breakout game of 22 points, seven rebounds, four assists and a steal, which helped steer CSB to their third win of the season. For Tang, it's been a long time coming for his most veteran player, who is averaging 2.2 markers in 23.5 minutes for the season. "JJ finally is back. We've been patient, even for this day to come. We know what JJ can do. It's just a matter of getting his confidence back and being able to contribute in a way we know he can," the second-year coach said.  The coach also added that he hopes that the game will a sign of greater things to come. As for the guard, his coaches' incessant desire to keep him going was the key for the breakout, and thanks them for their efforts. "Marami akong games na wala ako masiyadong na-cocontribute. Tapos, yun lang talaga, si coach nag-chchallenge sa akin everyday. Pag wala yung laro ko, masama, walang nangyayari. Tuloy-tuloy na yun. So, ang gusto lang nila coach sa akin, yung decision-making ko maging tama." Another inspiration for the senior is his infant son, who watched the game along with his girlfriend. Domingo kissed his son after the game, a reminder to keep his game going. "Kailangan sa bawat laro ko may parang mapatunayan ko sa anak ko na, kaya ko rin maglaro, ganoon. Sila inspirasyon ko paggising ko, ganoon. Naging emotional talaga ako pag nakikita ko yung baby ko ganoon. So parang nachchallenge ako, every game." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

NCAA: Domingo comes alive as CSB cops much-needed win

With College of St. Benilde desperate for a win in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament, its most senior player delivered the goods. The veteran guard played his best game in two years to jolt the Blazers back to life at the expense of Emilio Aguinaldo College, 84-71, on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Domingo scored 22 points on top of seven rebounds and four assists to help the Taft-based team return to the win column now at 3-4. “I hope we get some momentum going because we really need it to, at least, be in the middle of the pack,” a satisfied head coach TY Tang said post-game. The streaky shooter fired eight of his output in the final frame, just as the Generals were mounting a rally. “Finally, he got his confidence back. Hopefully, this will just be the start for him,” coach TY said. CSB’s edge, though, was gotten courtesy of a 13-0 run that turned a two-point lead to a 41-26 advantage late in the second quarter. Unique Naboa capped off that run with a triple and eventually ended with six points, five assists, and three rebounds. Yankie Haruna also added 11 markers. That was more than enough to overcome the loss of Cameroonian Clement Leutcheu who was ejected due to two technical fouls. He had nine points and four rebounds before being sent out in the final frame. For EAC, Juju Bautista and Hamadou Laminou both had double-doubles as the former finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds and the latter ended with 13 markers and 13 boards. They saw their two-game win run come to a stop and now stand at 2-5.

‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch’ gets a dark twist in new reboot

Do you remember watching Sabrina when you were a kid? Maybe it was Sabrina the Teenage Witch or the cartoon. Either way, a lot of us wished we had some of her powers. Now that we're older, Sabrina is getting a makeover. Just like Archie Comics, Netflix has given her story a dark twist in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Sabrina will be played by Kiernan Shipka who you might recognize from Mad Men. This origin story has elements of a coming-of-age plot but with touches of horror and witchcraft. The series was written by Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, so maybe we can expect something similar from this new show.

La Salle finishes fourth in South Korean tournament

While De La Salle University fell short of a podium finish in the 2018 Asia Pacific University Challenge, the experience they earned there will still go a long way as they commence a new era. The Green Archers fell to host Yonsei University, 80-92, last Saturday to wind up their campaign with a 2-3 record. That standing was only good for fourth-place in the invitational. Still, the Taft-based team welcomes the promising showings from the likes of scoring dynamo Aljun Melecio, hardworking forward Santi Santillan, and super rookie Encho Serrano. “Malaking tulong ‘to sa amin cause, first of all, we all know na yung team na ‘to is rebuilding so kailangang mabuo namin yung confidence namin sa isa’t-isa,” Melecio shared. He then continued, “Both on and off the court, yun yung nagawa namin.” In particular, Serrano, playing for the first time in green and white, showed several flashes of why he was once considered the top high school player in the country. “Masarap at masaya na makapaglaro na finally sa La Salle. Sobrang thankful ko rin kasi big experience para sa aking makalaro at makalaban yung mga team sa ibang bansa,” he said. A fully healthy team captain Kib Montalbo, who sat out much of the 2018 Filoil Preseason due to injury, was also a welcome sight. “Man’s greatest victory is to conquer himself. We learned a lot about mental toughness there,” he remarked. Now, La Salle will bring that experience to the looming UAAP Season 81. The Green Archers opened the tournament with back-to-back wins against Japan and Chinese Taipei before falling to UC Irvine, Russia-select, and Yonsei. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PVL: Lady Tams secure at least a semis berth playoff

Far Eastern University again went thru a marathon five-set in the Premier Volleyball Season 2 Collegiate Conference. But this time the Lady Tamaraws came out on top to secure at least a playoff for a Final Four berth with a come-from-behind 25-15, 15-25, 22-25, 25-14, 15-6 victory over University of Perpetual Help Sunday at FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Celine Domingo scored 19 points while Jeannette Villareal and Heather Guino-o added 11 and 10 markers, respectively, for FEU, which rebounded from a five-set loss to Adamson last week for a 4-1 win-loss card. Jerrili Malabanan and rookie Lycha Ebon chipped in nine markers each for the Lady Tams.      Head coach George Pascua felt relieved after a close call but pointed out that he wanted to see more from his second unit.      “Although nanalo kami pero kailangan bigyan ng break starting six namin para may kumpyansa bench namin,” he said. Pascua tweaked his lineup in the second and third set that almost backfired before deploying his starters in the last two sets to put things back in order.   “Sabi ko sa kanila yung chance na binigay ko sa kanila dapat magpakita sila, best character nila kung ano mabibigay nila,” Pascua said. The Lady Altas, who played without injured skipper Blanca Tripoli (hamstring), suffered their fourth loss in five games. Cindy Imbo scored 15 points, Jenny Gaviola had 13 while Jowie Versoza got 10 for Perpetual.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

Domingo leading the way for FEU in PVL

Far Eastern University's post Bernadeth Pons era has started and the team is starting to stand on its feet without its former talisman. In the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference, the Lady Tamaraws seemed to have found a new first option in middle blocker Celine Domingo. The third-year hitter has been carrying FEU's scoring load in the offseason tournament and she's slowly becoming the team's most potent scorer with outside hitter Toni Rose Basas sidelined with an injury. Domingo put up 18 points in FEU's five-set win over University of Perpetual Help, 25-15, 15-25, 22-25, 25-14, 15-6, and that production put her total at 70 points in the league's scoring table. ...Keep on reading: Domingo leading the way for FEU in PVL.....»»

Cesca Racraquin brings San Beda to first win

The Cesca Racraquin-led San Beda University finally made it to the win column of the PVL Collegiate Conference at the expense of the hapless San Sebastian Lady Stags, 25-24, 21-25, 25-20, 25-16, Saturday afternoon at the Filoil Flying V Centre. In a battle of two winless teams, San Beda came out as the winners thanks to the return of their leader, Racraquin. It was Racraquin’s first game after recovering from a mild left knee and ankle injury last week. "Sobrang importante itong [game na ito] sa akin. Kasi for the past games namin na talo kami, I can see na wala silang leader sa loob and parang nasasaktan ako kasi ako yung leader nila tapos wala ako dun," she said. The San Beda ace tallied a total of 18 points, nine from attacks and another nine aces. "Ang focus ko ay mag lead sa team namin para maging isa kami and yun naman, nakatulong naman siya dun sa panalo namin today." Nieza Viray added 15 points while Satrriani Espiritu chipped in 13 for San Beda. Joyce Sta. Rita and Sofia Sarmiento paced the Lady Stags with 13 and 10 points respectively.

Eya Laure nurses recurring shoulder injury

After University of Santo Tomas rookie Eya Laure's feisty 18-point performance last week against UP Lady Maroons, her game was toned down a bit Saturday evening when they faced the College of Saint Benilde. Laure seemed bothered by a pain she felt on her right shoulder. She constantly rubbed her shoulder all throughout the game and her attacks, especially in the third set,  were not in full power. In the post-game after the Golden Tigresses won in straight sets, assistant coach Ian Fernandez bared that Laure is nursing a recurring shoulder injury. "Mayroon ng iniinda yun sa shoulder niya. Hindi ako sure pero dalawang beses na lumaglag ang balikat nun eh," Fernandez said. "Yung shoulder ko, na-dislocate siya nung mga previous weeks. Kasi nung first kasi, nag the-therapy ako, may times na nawawala siya sa position tapos binabalik na lang uli. Tapos yung isa naman, sa weights namin sa UST may isa akong ginawang parang movement tapos yun natanggal siya pero binalik na lang ng PT," Laure explained. "So kung makikita natin sa game, medyo inalalayan din namain. Kinausap ko yung setter, si Mafe [Galanza] saka si Alina [Bicar] na sige bigyan mo. Pero kung di naman kailangan, bigay mo sa iba. Pero fighter yung bata eh," Fernandez furthered. But don't get them wrong, despite an injury that was already existing in her high school days, Laure still sizzled with 11 points including two service aces Saturday afternoon. "Nagpa MRI na ako kasi before UP game may di na talagang maganda na nangyari. Nag pain reliever lang ako para wala akong maramdaman talaga. Pero opo [nilaban na lang kanina]," Laure said. She also expressed that during trainings, she rarely engages her right shoulder with spiking and blocking drills to let it fully recover. She focuses on defensive drills instead. As early as today, rookie Laure is already seen as the girl who will raise UST's banner in the UAAP alongside Sisi Rondina. Now with an injury of hers exposed, she still assures the UST faithful that this is nothing too big to worry about. "Di naman nila dapat ika-worry kasi mag thetherapy naman ako at andyan naman yung PT namin ngayon, aalagaan niya naman daw ako sabi niya. Papacheck din ako sa doctors. Nakaka-recover naman. "Di ko naman siya [right shoulder] ipupush through sa ibang liga kasi syempre UAAP naman talaga ang sobrang pinaghahandaan namin.".....»»

UST s Ysa Jimenez heeds co-rookie Eya Laure s call

With Eya Laure nursing a shoulder injury, another University of Santo Tomas rookie stepped up for the Tigresses and her name is Ysabel Jimenez. The 18-year-old open spiker powered 13 points in a 46-percent attacking percentage as they faced the College of Saint Benilde, Saturday evening. "Parang [nag-sabi] rin si [Eya] sa akin na 'Ysa ikaw yung kailangan namin ngayon, tulungan mo ko.' Ako naman syempre, 'Oo tutulungan kita, yung team.' Gagawin ko lahat ng makakaya ko, andyan din naman sila ate para tulungan kami at sila coach kasi bigla nga siyang nagka-injury," explained the Univeristy of the East high school alumna. Jimenez heeded the call and came through to book their semi-finals ticket. They also rolled to a perfect 5-0 slate. "Sa amin kasi, itong game na to, walang pressure kasi lagi kaming nireremind ni coach na maging masaaya lang kami sa ginagawa namin and magtiwala sa kung anong kaya naming gawin and makinig lang sa kanila, sa mga instructions nila." Jimenez shared also that donning the UST jersey has always been a dream for her. Now that she is a Golden Tigress, she can't help but beam with pride. "Dream school ko po talaga tong UST. Andito yung mga taong nagpapasaya talaga sa akin. Masaya sa UST, sobrang saya. Hindi ako nagsisi na lumipat ako dito. Gusto ko kasi sila Coach Kung Fu. Ang galing nila mag coach, as in," she said with a big smile. Now with a very impressive spotless record and with a good mix of veterans and rookies bannering the team, Jimenez expressed that UST has lofty goals to achieve this PVL conference. "Gusto ko manalo kami, magchampion kami dito kasi syempre yung line up namin dito puro rookies kami so gusto ko kahit rookie pa lang kami, may mapuntahan agad kami." First it was Laure, now it is Jimenez. This just goes to show that UST has a very promising rookie class for UAAP Season 81.  .....»»

Hindi nasayang ang (pagsama sa) practice -- Rivero

Despite missing the cut in the national men’s basketball team’s final roster for the Jakarta Palembang Asian Games, Ricci Rivero remains thankful for the opportunity to train under head coach Yeng Guiao. Guiao announced the final lineup Friday after the squad’s practice at the Meralco gym. Unfortunately, young talents Kobe Paras and Rivero didn’t make the lineup as well as Talk ‘N Text guard Don Trollano, who sacrificed his spot for Cleveland Cavaliers guard Jordan Clarkson despite the eligibility of the NBA player still in doubt pending the petition of the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas to the Indonesian organizers to include him in the Asiad roster.        “Actually wala (sama ng loob), nothing against anyone sobrang thankful pa rin ako,” said Rivero. “I talked to coach Yeng sabi ko, “Sobrang thank you for this opportunity.” “Kasi sobrang dami kong natutunan. First, yung mga kuya and then next sina coach Yeng kasi sobrang hands on nila,” added Rivero. “Si coach Yeng kasi nakikita ko sobrang galing niyang mag-develop ng player, in a short time sobrang dami kong natutunan sa kanya. So yun sobrang thank you.” Rivero was present in all the five practice sessions of the Nationals, which started Monday. Rivero rushed into the Meralco gym Monday after landing in Manila following the University of the Philippines’ training in Serbia. In the end, Rivero was thankful for the rare chance to vie for a spot for the tricolors. For me hindi (nasayang ang pag-ensayo), sobrang thankful talaga ako na yun nga naging part ako nito,” he said. “Nu’ng una pa lang naman na narinig ko sobrang thankful na ako, gusto ko siyempreng makasama pero siyempre di ba PBA players na yan and hindi naman sila basta-basta. Sobrang thankful ako, hindi nasayang ang (pagsama sa) practice.” The Nationals that will try to surpass the seventh place finish of Gilas in the 2014 Incheon Asiad will be led by the core of Rain or Shine in Chris Tiu, Maverick Ahanmisi, Beau Belga, Raymond Almazan, James Yap, and Gabe Norwood. Completing the team are JP Erram, Christian Standhardinger, Paul Lee, Stanley Pringle, Asi Taulava and Clarkson.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA: John Amores, Light Bombers take fight out of Braves

STANDINGS LSGH 5-1 PERPETUAL 4-1 MAPUA 5-2 ARELLANO 4-2 SAN BEDA 2-2 SAN SEBASTIAN 3-5 JRU 3-3 LPU 2-5 LETRAN 1-4 EAC 1-5 Jose Rizal High School is the only team in the 94th Season of the NCAA 94 Juniors Basketball Tournament thus far to have downed both playoff hopefuls Mapua High School and Arellano High School. Behind a scintillating 18-2 surge in the last five minutes, the Light Bombers took down the Braves, 79-64, on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Of course, John Amores fronted the rally by dropping eight of his 27 points in that pivotal push. “Ang maganda, talaga kasing pinagtatrabahuan ng mga bata e. Gusto talaga nila manalo,” a beaming head coach Vic Lazaro said post-game. Trailing by one with five minutes remaining, the do-it-all swingman got together with John Delos Santos and Gab Baluyut and, all of a sudden buried Arellano in a hole it would never get out of. Amores, the hands-down most improved player in the tournament, also added five rebounds and four assists in JRU’s third win in six games. Delos Santos wound up with 14 points, nine assists, four rebounds, and two steals while Baluyut had 13 markers and three blocks of his own. “’Di kami ganun kalaki so kino-compensate namin sa trabaho, hardwork, hustle, defense,” their mentor said. Behind those three, the Light Bombers scored another upset to add to their takedown of the Red Robins to start the season. Rom Junsay topped the scoring column for the Braves with 18 points while Aaron Fermin posted another strong double-double of 15 points and 20 rebounds to go along with three blocks. Going cold in the last five minutes, though, they fell back to fourth-place now at 4-2. With Arellano’s loss, Mapua seized solo third with a come-from-behind victory versus Emilio Aguinaldo College, 80-79. The Red Robins found themselves trailing by 10 at halftime until Clint Escamis and Dan Arches took over, combining for all but six points in their 29-point third quarter. Those two players outscored all of the Brigadiers in the same timeframe, 23-19. Escamis ended up with 28 points, six rebounds, six assists, and four steals while Arches had 22 markers, five boards, and three steals of his own. Paolo Hernandez joined in on the fun in the final frame, pouring in all of his 12 points to help Mapua fend off its opponent and finalize its ascent to 5-2. EAC fell for the fifth time in six games despite the best efforts of Cjay Boado and JR Ilustrisimo who scored 21 and 15 points, respectively.
