Hindi ko naman alam kung ibibigay sa atin -- PBA OIC Marcial

Philippine Basketball Association officer in-charge Willie Marcial remains non-committal about being appointed as league commissioner for good. Marcial said he’d rather wait until the 30-day grace period of his appointment as OIC has lapsed before making the appropriate move. His appointment as league caretaker is only good for a month or at least until the end of January. “No comment ako. Hihintayin ko na lang na matapos ko yung 30-days,” said Marcial, who was the special guests in the first Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum for the year at the Tapa King Restaurant at Farmers Market in Cubao on Wednesday. “Hindi ko naman alam kung ibibigay sa atin, kung ano yung expectations nila, at kung ano rin yung expectations ko sa kanila. Kaya hindi ko rin masabi.” A long time PBA personnel who rose from the ranks, Marcial was appointed OIC after the resignation of former commissioner Chito Narvasa became effective at the start of the year. A selection committee in-charge of choosing the next commissioner will be formed when the league board holds its first monthly meeting for 2018 next week. But if asked of his two cents worth regarding the qualities of the next league chief, Marcial mentioned two major attributes. “Dapat abugado o kaya (may alam) sa marketing,” said Marcial in the public sports program presented by San Miguel Corp., Tapa King, and the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. “Kasi tatakbo naman yung liga kapag iyo ang mga kasama mo. Alam na nila yung sistema dahil matatagal na sila dito.” “Kaya kung sinuman ang magiging commissioner ng PBA, huwag siyang mag-alala sa mga empleyado ng liga dahil hindi nila ito pababayaan.” Marcial, the long-time league external affairs and communications head, was joined in the weekly session by PBA and D-League technical director Eric Castro, technical official Roscelle Teotico, D-League tournament supervisor Junior Bengua, and Tapa King  vice chairman Julius Magallanes, who reiterated his all-out support to the weekly Forum. “Nakita ko yung impact ng sports (sa tao) like discipline and competitiveness. I think malaking tulong ito para sa mga kabaatan na malayo sa mga bisyo. And this is one of our advocacies in our company,” said Magallanes. Castro meanwhile, also made use of the opportunity to invite the public for the opening of the D-League Aspirants Cup on Thursday.

Pilepic powers Lifesavers past hapless Tigresses

Generika-Ayala returned in the win column after taking down listless Victoria Sports-University of Sto. Tomas in straight sets, 25-16, 25-19, 25-23, Tuesday in the 2017 Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Looking to build momentum heading into the knockout quarterfinals, the Lifesavers banked on Croatian import Katarina Pilepic’s explosive game to improve to 3-4 win-loss record and bounce back from a previous setback at the hands of F2 Logistics. Pilepic had an all–around offensive outing as she hammered 18 attacks with a two kill blocks and a pair of aces for a 22-point production for Generika-Ayala. Facing a squad composed of collegiate players and still looking for the elusive win, Lifesavers coach Francis Vicente had the liberty to tweak his rotation and giving more playing time to his locals. Import Darlene Ramdin came off the bench in all of the sets scoring six points. “Kailangan ding gamitin mo ang ibang mga players mo at huwag tayong mag-rely masyado sa import,” said Vicente. Chloe Cortez finished with nine points while Angeli Araneta and Mikaela Lopez combined for eight markers. Despite a quick 51-minute workout, Vicente stressed that his squad needed more improvement especially heading into the playoffs. “Kailangan pa naming mag-step up. Although maganda and nilaro nila nakita ko lang na ‘yun na naman tayo, tending to relax at the end of the sets,” he pointed out. “Kailangan lang nilang pag-kill talaga kill, huwag ng mag-relax para dominant na sa lahat ng points na ginagawa nila. May error pa rin eh. Kailangan bawasan.” Generika-Ayala will close the elims against Sta. Lucia Realty on Nov. 30. The Tigresses took an 18-16 lead in the third frame before the Lifesavers rallied to take a 21-19 advantage. UST opposite hitter Dimdim Pacres tied the set at 23 before Pilepic gave the lead back to Generika-Ayala with a kill.   Pacres surrendered the match after sending her attack straight to the net. The fourth year spiker Pacres scored 10 points while Tin Francisco had eight markers in a lost cause for UST, which dropped to 0-5.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Lady Chiefs respond well to Javier's 5th set instruction

Arellano University head coach Obet Javier gave his team a short and simple instruction heading into the make or break fifth set against University of the Philippines. Give everything you got, he said. His wards responded with a dramatic win that catapulted the Lady Chiefs into the semifinals Saturday in Group B of the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Huffing and puffing after an extended fourth set, the reigning NCAA titlists pushed themselves to the limit to topple one of UAAP’s top contenders. “Sinabi ko lang sa mga players ko na huwag ng magtipid at ibigay na ang dapat na ibigay,” said Javier, who was just coming off an operation to remove his gallstones two weeks ago. The Lady Chiefs came out firing on all cylinders and buried the Lady Maroons early to escape with a 22-25, 25-10, 25-19, 32-34, 15-3, win and a ticket to the best-of-three Final Four together with Adamson University. Jovielyn Prado and Regine Arocha exploded with 20-plus scoring outbursts to lead two more Arellano players in double figures while setter Rhea Ramirez had a superb 55-excellent set outing to welcome Javier back with an all-important victory. Javier was glad to see his team showing the kind of fighting spirit that brought them to the NCAA throne. “Kanina sa huddle namin sa dugout, sinabi ko na i-treat nila ang game na ito as a championship at pinaka-last na game na ng buhay nila. Kaya talagang ibigay na ang dapat ibigay. Wala ng relax-relax,” he said. “Sabi ko  naman na kung matatalo ayos lang kasi ang pag-join sa PVL puro gain ito sa aming lahat kasi bago ang team ko ngayon,” he added. “Malaking factor ang pag-join namin dito lalo na’t binigyan kami ng napakagandang laban ng UP, gagamitin namin yun para mas lalong umangat ang level ng performance ng team ko.” The Lady Chiefs will await their semis opponent in Group A. National University, Ateneo de Manila and Far Eastern University are still in contention for a semis slot in their bracket. Arellano U is the only NCAA team to advance in the semifinals, and Javier admitted that he loves that challenge of carrying their collegiate league’s pride.  “Paghahandaan namin (ang semis). Lalo ngayon na siguradong dalawang UAAP teams ang makakapasok sa kabila tapos dalawa kami ng Adamson,” he said. “Kung sino ang matatapat sa amin panibagong challenge na naman ito. Kami naman kapag may dumating na hamon, laban lang ng laban.”   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

Sunday Sneaks: Go Super Saiyan or go home

Sunday Sneaks just received a super upgrade. Rey Nambatac is doing custom shoes justice, choosing to break out a very special adidas Harden Vol. 2 against Globalport in the 2018 Commissioner's Cup. Using the "Imma Be A Star" colorway as base, Nambatac decided to put the legendary Son Goku in his pair, making his shoe truly 1 of 1. Goku, who really needs to introduction to Pinoy fans, is doing his signature kamehameha move in Nambatac's shoe. Turns out Nambatac, pretty much like everyone else, is a huge fan of the iconic Super Saiyan and his super friends. "Mahilig talaga ako sa sapatos dati pa eh, nung di pa ako naka-sign sa adidas nagco-collect na ako ng mga Jordan. Nung nag-sign ako sa adidas, every month may supply, and naisip ko na gumawa ng parang pakulo lang," Nambatac told ABS-CBN Sports. "Bawat sapatos ko gagawan ko ng different design. Pero ito ngayon isa pa lang eh, tinignan ko muna kung maraming makaka-appreciate. Yun nga, marami naman natuwa and nagustuhan nila," he added. The former Letran Knight admitted to being shocked as to how much custom work on shoes cost. It's definitely not cheap to get that kind of work done. Fortunately, Nambatac has a pretty creative friend and that artist gave him a good, friendly deal for this first shoe. "Maraming salamat dun sa artist ko na si Bryan. Hindi niya talaga shop to eh, kumabaga sideline niya lang to," Nambatac said. "Nagwo-work din siya eh. Friend ko naman siya matagal na sa college pa lang ako. Sa ibang shop nag-try ako mag-inquire, medyo expensive eh. So nagtanong ako sa kanya then nagulat ako sa binigay niya na price so sabi ko go na," he added. As for Son Goku, Rey is just a fan. He tries to stay updated with the anime as much as he can but following Dragon Ball Super has been a task so far, especially since he's been working on his craft in the PBA. "Avid fan ako since bata pa ako eh. Talagang wala akong mintis dun. Hanggang ngayon nanonood pa rin ako," Nambatac said. "Kaya ako nag-decide na Goku para balik dun sa pagkabata na alaala," he added. The Son Goku pair is just the beginning Nambatac said. A Supreme-inspired one and a shoe bearing the likeness of Vegeta is coming up next. Those should be worth a look in the future. "Meron ako isa, kasi dalawa Harden ko eh, isang black tsaka isang red. Yung red pinagawa ko na rin, Supreme naman ang design nun. Tapos pag may naglabas ulit na bago or nagbigay ulit adidas, plano ko si Vegeta naman," he said.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Le Tour de Filipinas: Oranza wins chaos-free Stage 2

Philippine Navy-Standard Insurance skipper Ronald Oranza and his in-form teammates took full advantage of their familiarity of the challenging Stage 2 route as they stamped their class in the 2018 Le Tour de Filipinas under a bright Monday sunshine. Oranza, 26, attacked like a hungry cheetah in the mountainous part of Santa Fe popularly known as Dalton Pass while his fellow Navymen sustained the pressure in the homestretch as they stood at the forefront of the local charge in the 157.9-kilometer journey that started in Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija, and finished just entering the town proper here. Oranza whopped it up as he crossed the finish line in three hours, 48 minutes and 34 seconds before he looked back at the 15-man chase group that included all of his four fellow Navymen with a big smile, savoring his breakthrough lap victory in the annual bikathon. The Villasis, Pangasinan native became just the fourth Filipino stage winner in the only International Cycling Union-calendared road race in the country after veteran riders Oscar Rendole, Arnel Quirimit and 7-Eleven Cliqq RoadBike star Mark Galedo, the 2014 champion. Oranza admitted that his familiarity of the tricky route, made tougher by Category 4 and 2 climbs in the dreaded Dalton Pass, proved decisive because he and his fellow Namen negotiated the same course with relative ease during their unstoppable run to a domestic tour crown last March. “Malaking tulong na pamilyar kami sa ruta kasi ma-survive lang namin ‘yung Dalton Pass, ‘yung daan papunta dito, rolling na,” said Oranza, who also topped the pair of KOM challenges to claim the red polka dot jersey given to the best climber. But he will still wear the coveted yellow jersey given to the general classification leader for today’s Stage 3, the longest at 185.20 kms from Bambang, Nueva Vizcaya, to Lingayen, Pangasinan, in what could be another decisive lap. Not to be outdone was Oranza’s teammate Jan Paul Morales, 32, who seized the green jersey as the best sprinter after sweeping two intermediate sprints inside the first 60 kilometers. He also moved up from fourth spot to third in the individual GC for his six-second time bonus. Galedo’s 7-Eleven teammate, Daniel Ven Carino claimed the white jersey as the best young rider after he finished with the chase group, more than 11 minutes ahead of his Japan-based Interpro Stradalli counterparts Kouki Shinoda and Kouki Mitsuda. A pair of Navymen, climbing specialist Junrey Navarra and El Joshua Cariño, also finished inside the Top 10 at sixth and seventh spots, respectively, while grizzled Bike Xtreme Philippines rider Cris Joven checked in at eighth overall. Korean Jung Hajeon of Uijeongbu Cycling Team and Eritrean Metkel Eyob of Terengganu finished second and third overall respectively while Iranian Reza Hosseini of Pishgaman Cycling Team rounded up the top five finishers. Meanwhile, chief commissaire Louise Jones lauded the organizers and members of the local government units of Nueva Ecija and Nueva Vizcaya who all did an excellent share in ensuring the smooth flow of the race column this time, unlike in Bulacan and Pampanga where the traffic gridlock proved hellish as it could be due to lack of coordination that led to the stoppage of the opening stage last Sunday. “Yesterday was very much a safety issue, I feared for the riders’ lives. Today, everything was 300-percent better,” said Welsh Jones, a two-time Olympian before she became an International Commissaire. “Everyone did their job properly. The organization looked after us pretty well and I’m pleased with the marshals and everyone who made the racing very safe,” added the first Chief Commissaire of the race also sanctioned by the PhilCycling. It was the Navymen, however, who put on a dominant show of force as they set the tone early behind Morales before Oranza made his big move at the mountainous part of Santa Fe where he formed a three-man breakaway that included 7-11 rider Nelson Martin. However, Martin struggled to sustain the pace under the scorching heat in the town of Bambang and was eventually swallowed by their persistent chasers. But Oranza persevered and dug deep in his tank for one final push in the last three kilometers to complete his impressive lap victory......»»
