Kobe Paras upbeat about the Gilas Pilipinas 2023 squad he ll eventually lead

If you ask Filipino forward Kobe Paras to describe what all the early developments for the Gilas Pilipinas squad for the 2023 FIBA World Cup make him feel, you'll get one word: Happy. Paras, who was one of the more prominent names among 23 young players listed by the Philippine national basketball team head coach Chot Reyes to be part of the early training pool, expressed his approval of the group of guys, even if some are visibly left off of the list because of their commitment to other squads. "I’m happy with the group of guys. I know there are a lot of guys that aren’t on the list," Paras said in an interview with Steve Angeles of ABS-CBN News North America during the Los Angeles Clippers' Filipino Heritage Night. "It makes sense if they’re not on the list because of their teams or whatever rules but I’m happy with it."  One player who fit that bill was De La Salle University's flashy forward Ricci Rivero, who was left off the list after his school urged its players to focus on their rebuild next UAAP season. Even then, the 6'6" Paras, who's more or less baptized by Coach Chot to be destined to be the face of the nationa team sounded both honored and excited about his inclusion to the squad, who'll represent the Filipino tricolor five years from now, as the Philippines co-hosts the international basketball meet with Indonesia and Japan. "I’m happy that coach picked me as well. I love representing my country so I’m just really happy that he chose me for that," said the U.S.-based Paras. "I saw the other day they practiced." Aside from local, homegrown talents included in the "#23for23" pool like Thirdy Ravena, CJ Perez, Robert Bolick, and Isaac Go, a couple of Filipino-Americans also made the list. Remy Martin, a rookie point guard for the Arizona State Sun Devils, and Dwight Ramos from the California State-Fullerton Titans, were names present in the preliminary pool. As a fellow Pinoy cager in a foreign land, Kobe is nothing but eager to meet, and eventually play his contemporaries. "I haven’t talked to Remy [Martin] or what’s his name from Fullerton...Dwight [Ramos]," Kobe said. "I think I’m going to play him too. I gotta talk to Dwight but I’ve seen Remy play. I need to talk to them though. Because we’re representing L.A. and the Philippines so it’s going to be cool."  Here's the full video interview of Kobe Paras:  .@_kokoparas enjoyed being at .@LAClippers Filipino Heritage Night and he also expressed his happiness about being on SBP #23for23 He hopes to also speak to .@3wight and .@1Remy_Martin1 soon 🇵🇭🏀🌊 .@abscbnsports .@ABSCBNNewsSport .@ABSCBNNews pic.twitter.com/e8GcUq1Luf — Steve Angeles (@StevieAngeles) January 9, 2018.....»»

Six standout local volleybelles of 2017

We’ve seen them shine this year whether in the collegiate stage, in the club leagues or even in the international scene. These six Pinay volleyball players took the sport’s limelight in the year that’s about to end.     DESIREE CHENG Desiree Cheng came into De La Salle University during the time bitter rival Ateneo de Manila University got the Lady Spikers’ number. From Seasons 76 to 77, Cheng saw her team fall prey to the might of the Lady Eagles in the UAAP Finals. Then redemption came in Season 78. Unfortunately, the 5-foot-8 spiker was forced to watch from the sidelines with an ACL tear as her crew reclaimed the crown. A year after, Cheng got her biggest break. DLSU lost most of its veteran core after Season 78 and needed another scoring option. Cheng heeded the call. Though Cheng struggled at the start of the eliminations, the hitter slowly got her groove back and delivered when DLSU needed offense in their sixth straight championship showdown against Ateneo. Cheng was the X-factor for the Ramil De Jesus-mentored squad during the series. Her contributions both on offense and floor defense played a huge part in the Lady Spikers’ series sweep of the Lady Eagles for the school’s 10th title. Cheng also helped F2 Logistics claim the Cargo Movers’ breakthrough Philippine Superliga Grand Prix title and a runner-up finish in the All-Filipino Conference.   ALYSSA VALDEZ Although Alyssa Valdez failed to claim a crown in the Premier Volleyball League this year and a continued title drought since 2016, the Phenom’s magic remains. She can still fill up game venues whenever she takes the court and 2017 proved as the former Queen Eagles’ biggest year in terms of her flourishing volleyball career. Valdez brought her talents abroad, landing a stint with 3BB Nakornnont in the Thai League and in the Thai-Denmark Superleague where her team finished third in both tournaments. After her appearance in Thailand, Valdez donned the Creamline jersey and led the Rebisco franchise to a bronze medal finish both in the PVL Reinforced and Open conferences. Valdez also had another tour of duty, playing for the national team in the AVC Asian Women’s Senior Volleyball Championship and the 29th Southeast Asian Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The 24-year old hitter got another international gig when she was tapped by Attack Line to play in the Chinese-Taipei Volleyball League.          Outside volleyball, Valdez has a blooming relationship with basketball star Kiefer Ravena. If she’s not busy with her volleyball and other commitments, Valdez also drew attention as one of the newest member of the so-called PBA players’ WAGS (wives and girlfriends) cheering for Ravena and the NLEX Road Warriors.      DAWN MACANDILI She may be only 5-foot tall but Dawn Macandili stood alongside Asia’s volleyball giants this year. The De La Salle University libero was the catalyst in the Lady Spikers’ back-to-back UAAP championship run. Her pesky floor defense frustrated DLSU’s rivals while giving her teammates a good first ball to operate their lethal offense.  But her biggest showing was when she landed a spot in the national team that competed in the AVC Asian Senior Women’s Volleyball Championship and in the Kuala Lumpur SEA Games. A first-timer donning the national colors, Macandili did not disappoint as she earned the respect and admiration of Japanese coaches and trainers during the Nationals’ training camp in Japan. She performed even better when the PHI hosted the AVC Asian Seniors. Ms. Everywhere gave teams like Asian powerhouse Vietnam, Kazakhstan, South Korea and Thailand a hard time with her floor defense. All her efforts caught the eyes of the AVC tournament officials and she was rewarded with the historic 2nd Best Libero award. She made the final list of in the national team that participated in the SEA Games. Back in the local scene, Macandili helped F2 Logistics to runner-up finish in the PSL All-Filipino Conference and a breakthrough crown in the Grand Prix.    JAJA SANTIAGO Tall, powerful and versatile, Jaja Santiago is a force to reckon with.  At 6-foot-5, Santiago dominated the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference as she led the National University Lady Bulldogs to a perfect championship run. She also bagged the conference’s Most Valuable Player award. Though NU failed to make it in the Final Four of UAAP for the second straight year, Santiago’s effort for the Lady Bulldogs was rewarded with a third straight Best Attacker award to go with the Best Scorer and Best Blocker recognitions. In the PSL, Santiago was a consistent scorer for the Foton Tornadoes in the All-Filipino Conference and the Grand Prix. Under the tutelage of Serbian import Moro Branislav, Santiago became an even more dangerous and versatile player. Aside from her natural position as a middle blocker, she can now wreak havoc on both wings the puts her height advantage to good use. She made it into the national team that competed in the AVC Asian Seniors and SEA Games and was the Nationals’ scoring ace. Santiago received an offer from Thai powerhouse Bangkok Glass but declined the offer to play in her last year with the Lady Bulldogs.             KIM FAJARDO Setter Kim Fajardo left winning legacy when she played her swan song for DLSU. It took her a few months to decide to play her fifth year with the Lady Spikers. Leading a young crew after the departure of the core of the Season 78 championship squad, Fajardo faced a tough challenge in the Taft-based squad’s title-retention bid. But the Batanguena proved her worth as a leader and the skipper rallied the Lady Spikers back into the Finals in a sixth straight collision against bitter rival Ateneo. Fajardo’s composure carried DLSU in a tough Game 1 match and again in the five-set title-clincher to complete the Lady Spikers’ series sweep of the Lady Eagles. She earned a spot in the national team as a starting setter. Fajardo steered F2 Logistics to its first PSL Grand Prix crown bagged the conference’s Best Setter award. She helped the Cargo Movers to a runner-up finish in the All-Filipino Conference.     JOVIELYN PRADO Silent but deadly. Jovielyn Prado may not be the typical vocal leader but her presence inside the court is enough to rally the Arellano University Lady Chiefs to meet their goals. The outside hitter proved her worth to the Lady Chiefs when she led the Legarda-based squad back on the NCAA women’s volleyball throne. A year removed from the title, Arellano U turned to Prado to provide the spark the Lady Chiefs needed to make another shot at the crown. Consistent, efficient and effective, Prado delivered for the Obet Javier-mentored squad. Arellano U advanced in the stepladder semifinals and dethroned College of St. Benilde to set up a date with thrice-to-beat, three-time Most Valuable Player Grethcel Soltones-led San Sebastian College. Undaunted even with a great series disadvantage, Prado played her best three games of the season to power the Lady Chiefs to an impressive sweep of the Lady Stags. Prado continued her great performance in the PVL Reinforced and Open Conference playing for the Power Smashers. She then bannered the Lady Chiefs to a bronze medal finish in the Collegiate Conference at the expense of UAAP team Adamson University.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles   .....»»

These volleyball-playing sisters prove great things come in pairs

With the rise of volleyball in the Philippines, 2017 saw an even bigger growth among the youth who'll end up loving the sport even more as the years go by. And as a kid with humble volleyball dreams, what's better than having a sister you can play with? Aside from being each other's closest buddy on and off the court, these sets of spiking siblings prove that great things come in pairs. Kim and Candice Gequillana   happy birthday manang! sml 💕 A post shared by cacee ❁ (@caceegequillana) on Jul 7, 2017 at 7:56pm PDT Kim Gequillana has long been the Ateneo Lady Eagles' "Magic Bunot", providing much-needed contributions be it with her timely service aces or her wide smile beaming from the bench. Kim's sister Candice, or Cacee, as she is fondly called, is a newcomer for the Heartstrong team, and beside her ate, she's expected to have that signature Gequillana energy to help keep the Lady Eagles in form after a number of veteran departures.   Desiree and Djanel Cheng   Proud of you achi 💚❤️ A post shared by Desiree Wynea Cheng (@chengcherengcheng) on Jan 29, 2016 at 10:26pm PST Des Cheng's renaissance season came last year, when she was a key part of the DLSU Lady Spikers' repeat championship. Coming from an injury, Des showed incredible heart in bouncing back, even leading the Lady Spikers as the season 79 Finals MVP in their win against Ateneo. On another collegiate league, Djanel has been a steady presence for another Green team. She was a part of the College of St. Benilde's historic NCAA volleyball title back in season 91.  They've been a great part of each others' success, and they're a great example to sisters and athlete-siblings, everywhere.    Myla and Marites Pablo Sister 👭👭👭 pic.twitter.com/41w77d57Ec — myla pablo (@iamMylaPablo) January 23, 2016   Myla Pablo needs no introduction. She's been a constant in Philippine volleyball since her days as a National University Lady Bulldog, up to her current stint with the Pocari Sweat Lady Warriors. Her younger sister Marites, a former Lady Bulldog herself, has transfered to Benilde in the hopes of making a name for herself. With a mentor like Myla, Marites would have no problems doing so.   Therese and Ponggay Gaston Therese may not be playing for Ateneo anymore, but the Gaston lineage in the Lady Eagles continues through the bubbly and athletic Ponggay. Daughters of former PBA player Fritz Gaston, they've always had sports in their genes, but more than that, their dad instilled a sense of competitiveness on the siblings early in their lives. "So, high school pa lang, we were very dedicated to volleyball and it was very serious for us," Therse shared in an interview with ABS-CBN Sports last 2016.   Jaja and Dindin Santiago   Nice outfit, Nice Bagsss... #kambal #twintowers #nikebagpack #nikeslingbag #dress #passion haha. A post shared by Alyja Daphne Santiago (@alyjasantiago3) on Jun 20, 2014 at 4:19am PDT National University's twin towers have been tearing it up since their UAAP days. From bright prospects as high school players back in UST, to their collegiate careers as towering players at the net, able to deliver lethal hits, or thunderous blocks. With Jaja standing at 6'6", and older sister Dindin reaching a still-impressive 6'2", it's safe to say that the Santiago sisters are strong by themselves. But together? Unstoppable.  Dindin may be nursing an injury at the moment, but Jaja is proudly representing the Santiago clan with her stellar outing as a member of the Philippine team for the AVC and SEA Games, and now back in NU in the Premier Volleyball League.   Jiezela and Nieza Viray From one set of "twins", to a legit pair, Jiezela and Nieza Viray are both currently playing for San Beda College. From Pangasinan to Mendiola, the Viray twins' exploints aren't limited to indoor volleyball.  They also compete regulary in the NCAA beach volleyball tournament, and in the Beach Volleyball Republic. As you would expect from twins, Jiezela and Nieza are dangerous weapons for the Lady Red Spikers with their high-flying hits and a connection that has been going strong since Day 1.    EJ and Eya Laure Daughters of former PBA player Eddie Laure, Ennajie or EJ, and Ejiya or Eya, definitely carry the stamp of their father. From their athleticism to their first name, which both start with the letter "E", and they're certainly making waves for UST as a formidable duo seen in the previous V-League season. .....»»
