NCAA: Mapua flies higher than JRU for first win

Leaning on its newfound size advantage as well as the clutch makes of its backcourt, Mapua University is a winner in its first outing in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament. Skipper Christian Bunag and prized rookie Warren Bonifacio took care of the inside while Laurenz Victoria and Eric Jabel took care of the shooting as the Cardinals grounded home team Jose Rizal University, 72-60, on Thursday at the JRU Gym in Mandaluyong. The revitalized visitors took control of the contest from the get-go and didn’t give the Heavy Bombers a taste of the lead or the momentum. “Ang overall assessment ko, I’m happy that we were able to do kung ano yung mga ni-practice namin,” a satisfied head coach Atoy Co said post-game. However, the home team was still able to pull to as close as 47-50 early in the final frame before Bonifacio’s and-one capped off a 5-0 spurt that re-increased the Mapua lead to 55-47. They wouldn’t look back from there en route to a wire-to-wire win to start the season. In the end, Victoria scored 11 points on top of seven rebounds and four assists while Jabel chipped in nine markers, all but two coming in the final frame. Twin towers Bunag and Bonifacio then combined for 14 points and 19 rebounds as the Cardinals showed that they will no longer be pushovers on the inside. “Defense, defense, defense, yun talaga,” coach Atoy said. For JRU, RJ David was the lone bright spot with 12 points and three rebounds. BOX SCORES MAPUA 72 – Victoria 11, Bonifacio 10, Jabel 9, Pelayo 8, Serrano 8, Biteng 8, Lugo 6, Gamboa 6, Bunag 4, Aguirre 2, Salenga 0, Garcia 0 JRU 60 – David 12, Mendoza 11, Bordon 9, Esguerra 6, Silvarez 6, Dela Virgen 5, Santos 4, Padua 4, Miranda 3, Estrella 0, Mallari 0, Aguilar 0 QUARTER SCORES: 25-14, 34-31, 52-47, 72-60 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PBA: Coach Yeng on NLEX s 2-0 start: 'Hanap na ako work dito sa Jakarta'

ANTIPOLO CITY --- NLEX is having a dream start in the 2018 Governors' Cup. Without Kiefer Ravena, Kevin Alas, Asi Taulava, and head coach Yeng Guiao, the Road Warriors have two impressive wins in three days to start the season-ending joust, taking over first place with a 2-0 record. The team is doing well without several key pieces, with assistant coach Jojo Lastimosa doing a great job filling in for coach Yeng. After NLEX beat Northport Sunday, 123-107, Coach Jolas read a message from coach Yeng post-game and Guiao is now considering taking job offers in Indonesia. Guiao is currently in Jakarta leading Gilas Pilipinas' campaign in the 2018 Asian Games. The whole thing is a joke of course. "Congrats coach, nice job. Hanap na ako work dito sa Jakarta mukhang di ako kailangan diyan," coach Jolas said as he read coach Yeng's message on his phone. Despite the stellar start with him in charge, Lastimosa is quick to give credit to the entire NLEX coaching staff, adding that it's a complete team effort to keep the team afloat with Guiao out. "This is not my sole responsibility," he said. "I'm just here facing you guys but the other guys have been doing the heavy lifting. I'm just doing the subs and I have to aske them if it's okay if they say don't, then I won't put the guys in. A lot of preparation happens in practice and the other coaches are really, really working," Lastimosa added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Chelsea tops Arsenal in EPL thriller, Kane ends August curse

By Steve Douglas, Associated Press Chelsea and Arsenal served up a feast of goals in a thrilling London derby in the Premier League. Across the capital, Harry Kane was happy with just the one goal to end his August hoodoo in England's top division. Chelsea scored twice in the opening 20 minutes, conceded twice before halftime and had a late winner through Marcos Alonso in a 3-2 victory over Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. In a game between teams with newly hired managers, Maurizio Sarri will be delighted with the attacking spark his Chelsea team has shown in the opening two games of the Premier League. It also scored three times in a win against Huddersfield last week. But it's two straight losses for Arsenal manager Unai Emery, whose side is showing the same defensive frailties as it did in the final seasons of predecessor Arsene Wenger's 22-year reign. After 15 games and more than 1,000 minutes, Kane finally scored a top-flight goal in August to seal Tottenham's 3-1 win over Fulham at Wembley Stadium. Spurs have also won their first two games after an offseason when they didn't buy a single player. ___ SARRI-BALL Sarri arrived at Chelsea promising to bring some fun after a difficult end to the tenure of previous manager, Antonio Conte. He is doing just that. Leaving gaps at the back but attacking in waves, Chelsea has been a thrill to watch in the opening two weekends — much different to the often cagey approach of fellow Italian Conte. Pedro Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata exploited Arsenal's high line to put Chelsea 2-0 up against Arsenal, which wasted a string of great chances at the other end before scoring twice in a five-minute span through Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi. Alonso swept in a cut-back from substitute Eden Hazard for the winner. KANE CURSE OVER Kane was fully aware of his August woes — he made reference to it in a Twitter post last season after scoring in his first game in September — and the England international failed to score in the 2-1 win at Newcastle last week in Tottenham's opening game. With only one more game left this August, at Manchester United, it looked like the curse might continue after Kane volleyed a shot against the post in the 71st minute against Fulham. His goal came six minutes later when he took a pass from Erik Lamela on the left of the penalty area, cut inside, and bent a low shot into the corner. Brazilian winger Lucas Moura and Kieran Trippier, off a shot from a free kick, had already scored for Tottenham, with Aleksandar Mitrovic making it 1-1 for Fulham just after halftime while sitting on the ground. ___ VARDY RED CARD Jamie Vardy was sent off on his first start of the season for Leicester but the team still eased early-season pressure on manager Claude Puel with a 2-0 victory over newly promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers. The England striker was handed a straight red card for a strong tackle on Wolves right back Matt Doherty, who had earlier scored an own-goal to give Leicester the lead. Leicester doubled the lead through James Maddison, leaving Wolves without a win so far. RAMPANT RICHARLISON Paying up to $65 million for a 21-year-old Brazilian with one inconsistent season in the Premier League behind him seemed a gamble by Everton. Two games in, however, and Richarlison is looking a bargain. He scored his third goal of the season to help Everton beat Southampton 2-1 for its first win of the season. Richarlison netted twice against Wolves on the opening weekend. Theo Walcott set up Richarlison for his headed goal and also scored himself for Everton at Goodison Park. Offseason signing Danny Ings pulled a goal back for Southampton. OTHER GAMES An offseason of heavy spending and the recruitment of Premier League-winning manager Manuel Pellegrini hasn't done much to improve West Ham's fortunes. The London club lost for the second straight game, beaten 2-1 by Bournemouth after taking the lead through Marko Arnautovic's penalty. Callum Wilson, after a mazy dribble, and Steve Cook replied for Bournemouth, which has maximum points after defeating promoted side Cardiff last week. Kenedy missed an injury-time penalty for Newcastle in a 0-0 draw at Cardiff in the other game Saturday......»»
