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.....»»

PBA: June Mar after meeting Smith again: 'Naawa ako sa sarili ko'

June Mar Fajardo already mentioned how hard it is for him to guard TNT import Joshua Smith. Back in the Finals of the 2017 Commissioner's Cup, the PBA's Most Valuable Player had trouble against the hulking Smith. [Related: Fajardo admits having trouble on Smith: Sobrang bigat niya] A year later, not much has changed. June Mar is still having trouble. "Laki niya, bigat niya. Ang galing," Fajardo said of Smith after the Beermen took a hard-fought 99-94 win over TNT Saturday. "Naawa nga ako sa sarili ko eh," he added with a laugh. Smith and June Mar were battling practically all game long. Fajardo logged 43 minutes while Joshua played for 45. June Mar scored 19 points and Smith responded with 26. For all of his trouble though, Fajardo is relieved the Beermen got a crucial win. A loss would have been disastrous for the defending champions who are already struggling with a .500 record after beating the KaTropa. "Mahirap, di naman siya madali kalaban kasi ang laki niya. Galing niya pumasa pag nasa ilalim kasi ang lapad niya eh, buti nakuha namin yung panalo," June Mar said. "Kailangan namin yung panalo para may chance kami makapasok. At least nasa gitna kami," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

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.

PBA: Danny Ildefonso is the role model for Vic Manuel

The 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup has been quite the breakthrough campaign for Vic Manuel. Manuel has long been a steady hand for Alaska, but in the current conference, he has been proving time and again that he has the capability to lead his team to a win. That was much evident on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum as dropped 17 of his career-high 35 points in the final frame to make sure his team’s streak stretched to six even without Abueva as well as key reserves Jeron Teng and Carl Bryan Cruz. With that career performance, the 30-year-old is now averaging 24.9 points in 60 percent shooting and 5.4 rebounds in the tournament. Without a doubt, that is several steps above his career norms of 9.9 points in 49.7 percent shooting and 4.7 rebounds. Aside from now being at full strength, the big difference for Manuel has been the Aces’ new big man coach Danny Ildefonso. Yes, the Danny Ildefonso who won eight championships and two MVPs. “He’s been spending a lot of time with one of the best post players in the history of the PBA,” head coach Alex Compton said. “I literally told Vic two or three years ago, isipin mo career mo and sino dapat idol mo? Maging Danny I ka.” Two or three years ago, Manuel was a key reserve for Alaska while Ildefonso was wrapping up his playing career with Meralco. Now, Ildefonso has begun his coaching career and is mentoring Manuel. For the pride of Nueva Ecija, the mentorship of a legend is the most welcome development for his career. “Sobrang laking bagay ni coach Danny. Dami kong natutunan sa kanya kasi tinututukan niya ako at lagi niya akong sinasabihan,” he said. He then continued, “Nung dumating siya, mas umangat pa yung laro ko.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Boxing: Albert Pagara back to form, sets sights on world champion Dogboe

Fighting in his hometown of Maasin, Southern Leyte, ALA Boxing standout ‘Prince’ Albert Pagara took one forward on his redemption tour as he demolished Laryea Gabriel Odoi to the point that the Ghanaian’s cornermen were forced to throw in the towel in the third round of their main event bout at Pinoy Pride 44: Laban sa Leyte, Saturday evening. With the win, Pagara reclaimed the WBO Intercontinental Super Bantamweight Championship, the very same title that he lost to Cesar Juarez back in 2016. The loss to Juarez remains as the only notch in Pagara’s loss column. Since then, the 24-year old Pagara has racked up four straight victories, three straight have come by KO or TKO, including Saturday’s win over Odoi. After destroying Odoi, Pagara an emotional Pagara fought back tears as he basked in the cheers of his kababayans. For Pagara, reclaiming the belt that he lost nothing short of euphoric. “Sobrang happy ako na nabalik ko yung belt ko, naging champion ulit ako ngayon.” Pagara told ABS-CBN Sports. Looking more like the ‘Prince’ Albert of old that won his first 26 bouts, Pagara says that now more relaxed and has found the optimal walking weight so that once fight time comes, he’s lighter and more agile. “Yung katawan ko, parang magaan, hindi tulad nung dating mga laban ko na parang hindi ako makasuntok at gigil ako. Ngayon, yung timbang ko, paglalaban ako, 132 pounds, ten pounds lang yung over ko para magaan yung katawan ko, para confident ako pag 132-pounds, kasi lalaban ako dati, 138 o 139, mabigat yung katawan ko, ngayon, grabe, parang ang-liksi.” After having already reclaimed the WBO Intercontinental title, would a rematch against Juarez be the next step towards complete redemption for Pagara? Not necessarily. For Pagara, another go-around with Juarez isn’t too appealing anymore. “Ayaw ko na hamunin si Juarez kasi na-knockout na siya ni [Isaac] Dogboe, gusto ko sa level na yung kakalabanin ko. Parang wala na siya. Gusto ko pa-taas na.” “Kung gusto ng ALA Promotion na rematch kay Juarez, sige okay lang sa akin kung mag-rematch kami.” Pagara added. Speaking of Isaac Dogboe, Pagara has his sights set on the current reigning WBO Super Bantamweight World Champion. The unbeaten Ghanaian knocked out Juarez to become the interim champ, and then knocked out Jessie Magdaleno just three months later to snatch the world title. Quite the target for Pagara, but he says the prospect of a bout against Dogboe is keeping him motivated. “Si Dogboe, gusto ko kalabanin, kaya focused ako ngayon sa training, focused talaga sa training, ngayon na nakamit ko na yung belt.” With teammates like Donnie Nietes, Milan Melindo, Jonas Sultan, and Arthur Villanueva all having held or challenged for world titles, Pagara says that he’s working even harder so that one day, he too can reach the level that they have. “Gusto ko maabot yung pangarap ko na maging world champion kagaya nila, kaya pursige lang talaga, disiplina sa sarili.” “Masasabi ko na nakabalik na si Albert, kasi yung style ko dati, binabalik ko na yung mga galaw ko, yung pag-laban ko dati.” Pagara added......»»

Boxing: Albert Pagara dominates Odoi to reclaim WBO title in Maasin

Total Domination. In front of a hometown crowd in Maasin, Southern Leyte, ALA Boxing star ‘Prince’ Albert Pagara stopepd Ghana’s Laryea Gabriel Odoi in three rounds to reclaim the WBO Intercontinental Super Bantamweight Championship in the main event of Pinoy Pride 44: Laban sa Leyte, Saturday evening at the Maasin City Gym. Coming out confident and loose, Pagara battered Odoi throughout the first two rounds of action, dropping the Ghanaian on multiple occasions. In the third round, Pagara pressured Odoi into the corner with a couple of body shots, eventually forcing the Ghanaian’s corner to throw in the towel in with thirty seconds remaining in the round. #PinoyPride44 || Final sequence of the fight.

Also leaving Pinoy Pride 44 with a championship is up-and-coming ALA Boxing super bantamweight Jeo ‘Santino’ Santisima after stopping Thailand’s Likit Chan-e in the third round to become the new WBO Oriental Super Bantamweight Champion. Chan-e hung tough in the first two rounds, keeping his head down and pushing the action while trading shots with the Pinoy.   Midway through round three however, Santisima unloaded a combination that Chan-e out on his feet, forcing the referee to step in and save the Thai from further damage.   The official stoppage came in at 1:43 of the third round, giving Santisima his first boxing championship. “Masaya ako na nabigay sa akin itong pangarap ko na matagal ko nang hinintay, ngayon binigay na sa akin ng Diyos,” an ecstatic Santisima said after the bout. “Sobrang saya.” Also scoring wins at Pinoy Pride 44 were former world title contender “King” Arthur Villanueva, who defeated fellow Pinoy Renren Tesorio via TKO in the seventh round, and Jason “El Niño” Pagara, who defeated Indonesian Wellem Reyk via KO in the third round.   Complete Pinoy Pride 44: Laban sa Leyte Results Albert Pagara def.

Injured Morado, Valdez join national pool training

Creamline stars Alyssa Valdez and Jia Morado joined the 13 national women’s volleyball team hopefuls that attended the first training session conducted by new head coach Shaq Delos Santos at the Arellano University-Legarda gym on Thursday. However, the Cool Smashers duo were nursing minor injuries and had to skip the drills and scrimmage. Valdez suffered a swollen right ankle while Morado sustained a right shoulder tendonitis – a lingering injury she aggravated on Wednesday in Creamline’s win over Iriga-Navy in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference.   “Last night kasi sobrang sumakit ‘yung Achilles (tendon) and then I had it checked this morning tapos namamaga nga,” said Valdez, who has been a regular in the national team since high school and is hoping to earn a spot for the Asian Games in August and the AVC Asia Cup in September.  “Doc Raul Canlas said na baka Achilles tendonitis so he’d rather have me rest muna,” added the Valdez, who last played for the national team last year in the Kuala Lumpur Southeast Asian Games. “Actually wala rin after the game (against Iriga), when I was sleeping talaga biglang sumakit. Siguro something happened during the game or before the game na hindi ko lang napansin.” Morado left Creamline’s last match midway in the second set. The former Ateneo de Manila University star said that she just needs a week of rest to recover. “The doctor said na it's just tendonitis. I just need to fully rest and continue ice therapy for a week,” said Morado. Valdez and Morado skipped Tuesday’s team meeting at the same venue where Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. introduced Delos Santos as the new mentor after Ramil De Jesus stepped down from his post just two months after accepting the coaching job. Also in attendance were Jaja Santiago,  Aby Maraño, Maika Ortiz, Rhea Dimaculangan, CJ Rosario, Denden Lazaro, Mika Reyes, Mylene Paat, Ces Molina, Rebecca Rivera, and Myla Pablo, who left early to train with her club team Pocari Sweat.   ---  Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PBA: June Mar sure loves playing against Columbian

June Mar Fajardo sure loves playing against the Kia franchise. In the victory against Columbian Wednesday in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup, Fajardo scored 37 points, 17 in the fourth quarter, as the Beermen won their third straight game. Fajardo's 37 points is a conference high and is the fourth-most points he's scored in one game for his career. And according to chief statistician Fidel Mangonon III, three of June Mar's top 5 scoring performances in the PBA came against the Kia franchise. Four of his top 7 are against the same team as well. But in true Kraken fashion, Fajardo just downplayed his big game, saying he just wanted the Beermen to win. While it was San Miguel's third straight victory, the defending champions are only at .500 with a 3-3 record after losing their first three games in the elimination round. "Kailangan lang namin manalo at makabalik sa standings," Fajardo said. "Buti nanalo kami ngayon. Credit sa mga teammates ko, lahat nag-step up. Ang ganda ng laro ni Alex [Cabagnot], triple-double, then yung import namin, as usual nandoon. Lahat nag-contribute," he added. Despite picking up steam, Fajardo says that the Beermen could still work on a lot of things moving forward. Most notably on defense as practically everyone at San Miguel didn't like the fact that they gave up 117 points in just 48 minutes to the Dyip. "Kailangan lang namin i-improve yung depensa, minsan nagre-relax kami," Fajardo said. "Pero pag naglaro kami as a team, shineshare namin ang bola, sobrang lakas namin, sobrang ganda ng kalalabasan. Sana ganun pa rin, mag-step up ang lahat. Hindi dapat mag-relax," he added.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Dyke dominates UE as La Salle stays hot in Got Skills Summer Showcase

STANDINGS (Under-25) Arellano 4-2 Letran 4-2 NU 4-2 LPU 5-3 FEU 3-2 La Salle 3-2 UP 3-2 UE 4-3 MLQU 1-5 UA&P 0-8 Continuing to prove his worth, Mark Dyke led La Salle to its third win in a row in the 2018 Milcu Sports Basketball presented by Got Skills Adidas Summer Showcase at the expense of UE, 52-40, last Tuesday at the Trinity University Gym in Quezon City. The incoming second-year forward, who is back with the team after trying his luck in FEU late last year, imposed his will all throughout and outmuscled defenders Shannon Gagate and Reymark Acuno en route to a 17-point, 18-rebound double-double. La Salle took until the third quarter, however, to get going with transferee guard Jordan Bartlett providing the spark. With Bartlett setting the table and Dyke finishing things, the Green Archers outscored the Red Warriors, 28-11, in the second half to improve their standing to 3-2. Sparkplug guard Bartlett wound up with nine points while backcourt partner Donn Lim chipped in eight markers of his own. UE was paced by big man Acuno who collected 12 points and eight rebounds. They now stand at 4-3. Meanwhile, in a showdown between well-stocked programs, NU edged out Lyceum, 71-69. Former UAAP Juniors champion Karl Penano showed the way with 18 points and six rebounds as the Bulldogs rose to joint first-place at 4-2. Versatile wings Mike Malonzo and Robert Minerva flanked him with a combined 21 markers and 13 boards. The 5-3 Pirates had their three-game win run halted despite the best efforts of sweet-shooting forward Ralph Tansingco who had 16 points and five rebounds. In other results, Letran (4-2) also made its way onto a share of the top spot following a 67-65 victory versus Arellano (4-2) while FEU (3-2) dragged down UP (3-2) in the standings with a 56-53 win.

Ateneo crushes NU by 34 points to stay spotless in Filoil Preseason

Ateneo de Manila University remains the pacesetter in the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament all while flexing its muscle up against a UAAP rival. Drawing contributions from up and down their lineup, the Blue Eagles routed National University for a convincing 94-60 victory on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Thirdy Ravena fronted the charge with 20 points while new reinforcement Angelo Kouame had 12 markers to his name. With Ravena on-point from the get-go, the reigning and defending UAAP champions blazed to a 26-10 start in the first quarter. They would never look back all the way to a still spotless 5-0 slate – good for joint first in Group A. Ateneo needs just one more win to secure a spot in the quarterfinals. Conversely, the Bulldogs now find themselves in a must-win situation as their latest lost drops their record to 2-5. Shaun Ildefonso was the only one in double-digits for them in this one with 16 points. Also still in the running for a quarters berth is the University of the Philippines which took care of business against University of the East, 66-61, even without top guns Paul Desiderio and Gomez de Liano brothers Javi and Juan. Nigerian powerhouse Bright Akhuetie posted a 17-point, 16-rebound double-double and Jun Manzo chipped in 13 markers of his own in the Fighting Maroons’ fifth win in a row after a 0-3 start to the tournament. With Juan GDL injured and Desiderio and Javi GDL tending to their studies, Janjan Jaboneta also stepped up with nine points, none bigger than a big-time triple with under a minute remaining. Overcoming the absence of its top guns, State U moved to solo fifth in Group A still win one assignment left in its schedule. Reymark Acuno paced the now 2-4 Red Warriors with 14 points. Meanwhile, Adamson University is the first team to deal a defeat to College of St. Benilde with an 80-60 whopping. Sean Manganti showed the way with 17 points, nine rebounds, and five assists while Jerom Lastimosa contributed 13 markers, five dimes, and three steals as the Soaring Falcons ascended to a 5-1 standing. Now tied with them for first-place in Group B are the Blazers who had Kendrix Belgica topping the scoring column with 18 points. In other results, Arellano University edged out Jose Rizal University, 76-74, to improve to 3-3. On the other hand, the Heavy Bombers finished the preseason without a win.

STANDINGS (Under-25) Arellano 4-1 UP 3-1 LPU 5-2 UE 4-2 Letran 3-2 NU 3-2 FEU 2-2 La Salle 2-2 MLQU 1-5 UA&P 0-8 Following back-to-back convincing victories versus tough foes, Lyceum is first to five wins in the 2018 Milcu Sports Basketball presented by Got Skills Adidas Summer Showcase. The Pirates dealt the first defeat to the University of the Philippines, 63-58, a week ago at the FEU Gym in Morayta, Manila before outlasting Letran, 91-87, in double-overtime last Friday at the same venue. With key cogs CJ Perez, MJ Ayaay, and Marcelino twins Jaycee and Jayvee still sidelined, Lyceum showed off its depth in both games en route to a 5-2 standing in the tournament. Against the erstwhile unbeaten Fighting Maroons, it was spitfire guard Casper Pericas who showed the way with a team-high 10 points on top of six rebounds and three assists. Wing players Yang Remulla and Ian Japzon also added nine markers apiece. Carl Lumbao and Spencer Pretta then took charge against the Knights as the Pirates battled back from 11 points down to begin the final frame. Sweet-shooting forward Lumbao scored 21 points to go along with six rebounds, four assists, and three assists while Pretta also had 20 markers to his name all while fronting the charge in the extra periods. With back-to-back wins, Lyceum now finds itself at solo third in the standings. Meanwhile, Arellano U bounced back from its first loss in the tournament by routing University of Asia & the Pacific by 43 points, 81-37. Gunslinger Rence Alcoriza led the scoring parade with 17 points while forwards Maui Serajosef and Harry Dumagan merged for 25 markers and 10 rebounds as the Chiefs registered its league-leading fourth win in five games. In other results, UE powered through Manuel L. Quezon University, 51-43, to improve to 4-2. NU then added to the woes of the Stallions with a big-time 81-39 win that hikes its record to 3-2. With their respective losses, UP slipped to 3-1, Letran fell to 3-2, MLQU dropped to 1-5, and UA&P remained winless in eight games. The Summer Showcase resumes on Tuesday at the Trinity University Gym with showdowns between 3-1 UP and 2-2 FEU, 5-2 Lyceum and 3-2 NU, as well as 4-2 UE and 2-2 La Salle.

PVL: Perlas Spikers survive 5-set thriller, snap 4-game skid

BanKo cashed in on Nicole Tiamzon’s heroics in the fifth set to snap a four-game slide to complete a come-from-behind 18-25, 18-25, 25-19, 25-22, 15-11, win over PayMaya Saturday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre. The former University of the Philippines hitter Tiamzon scored five of her 11 points in the deciding frame to deliver the Perlas Spikers second win in six games. American import Kia Bright finished with 25 points anchored on 23 attacks and two kill blocks while Thai reinforcement Jutarat Montripila had 24 markers including 22 off kills for BanKo, which survived High Flyer American import Tess Rountree’s 39-point explosion. With momentum on their side after stealing the third and fourth sets, the Perlas Spikers built an 11-8 lead. PayMaya rallied to close the gap, 12-11, before Bright scored on a next play followed by back-to-back errors by the High Flyers as BanKo walked away with an upset. “Pahirapan ang panalo naming, pero kahit papaano na-relieve kami kasi emotionally drained ang team dahil sa sunud-sunod na talo,” said a very relieved Banko head coach Dong Dela Cruz. The High Flyers were sharp in the first two frames before slowly fizzling out. Rountree hammered 31 spikes and had five kill blocks and three service aces for PayMaya, which fell to 3-2 card. American Shelby Sullivan had 13 markers while Jerrili Malabanan and Celine Domingo chipped in 11 and nine points, respectively, for the High Flyers.     ---              Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
