BVR on Tour: San Beda s Viray twins lead Lingayen Open cast

LINGAYEN – Twins Nieza and Ella Viray will strut their wares in front of their provincemates as the the BVR On Tour: Lingayen Open kicks off today at the Capitol Beachfront here. Making their first stint since the National Championship in Dagupan last year, the Virays, who were instrumental in getting two NCAA championships for San Beda, will lead a crack field of 12 women's teams in the two-day tournament which being held as part of this town's annual Pistay Dayat celebrations. Perlas' Bea Tan and Dij Rodriguez, the Puerto Galera and Santa Fe, Bantayan Island leg winners, hope to get back on the winning track after finishing second to University of Santo Tomas' Babylove Barbon and Gen Eslapor in Dumaguete over the weekend.

Representing Air Force 2 will be Jade Becaldo and Mike Abria, former two-time Boracay beach volleyball champions, who reunited and placed second in Dumaguete over the weekend.

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.

URCC champs De Tomas, Bulaong off 'Conquest' card

It looks like a couple of URCC champions will have to wait to make their US debut, as reigning flyweight champions CJ 'The Golden Boy' De Tomas and Geli Bulaong have been pulled off the URCC 29: Conquest card in California, Saturday. URCC founder and president Alvin Aguilar informed ABS-CBN Sports Marketing that the two flyweight champions would be unable to make the trip to the US due to Visa issues. De Tomas, who's coming off his first title defense against veteran Alvin Ramirez, was set to put his title on the line against Fil-American Derrick Easterling, while women's flyweight champion Bulaong, who won her title at URCC 28: Vindication, back in November, was set to defend her title against Jamielene Nievera. Still on the card will be reigning two-division URCC champion Chris Hofmann, who'll be putting his middleweight crown up for grabs against Strikeforce and Elite XC veteran David Douglas, while URCC lightweight champion Will 'The Kill' Chope faces Brazilian star Fabricio Alvez.

UAAP: Coach Franz says Adamson now a destination for blue-chip recruits

Adamson University, new-look and all, is doing pretty well in the ongoing 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. Following the lead of Jerrick Ahanmisi and fanning the flames of the development of Simon Camacho and Jerom Lastimosa, the Soaring Falcons are now one of the league leaders in the preseason tournament. Of course, it's not only those three doing the heavy lifting as rookies Aaron Fermin and Joem Sabandal and first-year foreign reinforcement Lenda Douanga have also delivered much-welcome contributions. "I think we got very good recruits," head coach Franz Pumaren said after they improved to 3-1. "But basically, they still need to work on their individual skills." Aside from Fermin, a double-double machine from his time in Arellano High School, and Sabandal, a steadying force for Adamson HS, also now in San Marcelino are Lorenz Capulong, AP Manlapaz, Joshua Yerro, and Doria twins Adam and Andrey. That has given the blue and white one of the best recruiting classes in 2019. That big-time offseason haul proved coach Franz correct when he said that Adamson could now recruit with the best of the best. "Since I took over, I think we picked up a lot of respectability. We already established that Adamson can be a powerhouse in basketball," he said at the end of their campaign in UAAP 81 last November. He then continued, "Right now, we are a destination for high school kids who want to be developed." Without a doubt, getting the better of other suitors for the likes of blue-chip recruits Fermin, Sabandal, and Yerro is nothing but a welcome development for the Soaring Falcons - upstarts in terms of recruitment compared to the likes of Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, or San Beda University. And the reason for that is pretty simple - in the eyes of their mentor. As he put it, "We thrive on developing and bringing out the best in players. That's why I know that this is now a destination for aspiring players." He then continued, "If you want to be noticed, to be put on the map, of course, the right place to go is with us." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
