PBA Finals: 5-peat hardest title to win since Beeracle says Arwind

San Miguel Beer’s 2019 PBA Philippine Cup conquest is special for a lot of things. One, it’s the Beermen’s fifth straight Philippine Cup crown. That’s a league record and it pretty much established San Miguel’s status as the greatest All-Filipino dynasty of all time. Two, the seven-game series win against Magnolia is pretty much the hardest and most fulfilling title for the Beermen since the incredible “Beeracle” run in 2016. “Maliban sa Beeracle, ito na yung pinaka-mahirap naming kunin na championship,” Arwind Santos on their 4-3 Finals win against the Hotshots to complete the 5-peat. “Sobrang nakakakaba pero dito pa rin nasubukan yung tiwala namin sa bawa’t isa,” he added. In 2016, San Miguel was down 0-3 to the Alaska Aces before the Beermen went on to make the greatest comeback in basketball history to win back-to-back titles. In 2019, San Miguel was down 0-1, 1-2, 2-3 in the series and was trailing by 17 in the second half of Game 7 to Magnolia before rallying in the fourth to win by one point in the decider. The Beermen simply refused to let go and now their place in history s secured. “Sa totoo lang, para akong lalagnatin. Pagod na pagod ako,” Arwind said. “Ang hirap bumitaw kasi ang lapit lang eh. Kung kumurap ka, puwede ka pa manalo. Yun na lang nasa isip namin nun. Sige lang, tiwala lang sa bawa’t isa,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

UAAP Season 81 Finals: Blessed na nag-UST ako -- Rondina

University of Sto. Tomas prized hitter Sisi Rondina was at loss for words for the touching gesture of the UST alumni, community and supporters to fly in her family to watch her play in Game 2 of the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball Finals.     Rondina, who is set to receive her Most Valuable Player award on Wednesday before the pivotal Game 2 of the best-of-three championship series against Ateneo de Manila University, welcomed her family who came from Cebu Tuesday afternoon at the NAIA Terminal 4. UST alumni and supporters chipped in to fund the airfare and accommodation expenses of Rondina’s family. In a separate interview, Rondina admitted that due to her priority of buying a 2-storey house in her hometown in Compostella, she won’t be able to fly her family to Manila to watch her in the biggest stage of country’s premier collegiate league in her swan song.       “Blessed na nag-UST ako and syempre to be part of the UST community. For me, masaya ako kasi first time nilang makapanood dito sa Manila, championship pa,” said a very thankful Rondina, who is also set to claim the 2nd Best Open Spiker award. “Masaya ako syempre kasi ma-a-awardan ako bukas na andoon sila.” The Queen Tigress was grateful for her UST family for the special gift not only to her but also for her teammates Alina Bicar and Dimdim Pacres. Bicar's family flew in from Samar Tuesday morning while Pacres' family landed in Manila in the afternoon a few minutes after Rondina's family's arrival.      “Sobrang thankful ako kasi plano ko talaga na makapanood sila ng live and naisip nila [fans] na papuntahin sila [family ko] dito. And hindi lang ako pati sina Dimdim (Pacres) and Alina (Bicar) [family nila andito rin].” “Mapapasabi ka na lang na ‘buti na lang nag-UST kami’ kasi ‘yung support ng community andoon talaga,” she added. “Sobrang sarap ng feeling na ‘yung mga taong tumulong sayo hindi nagdalawang-isip. Hindi ko alam kung paano ako magpapasalamat.” Rondina promised the UST community that she will play her best to deliver the title and end a nine-year wait. “Syempre I will do my best para sa game namin and syempre para worth it lahat ng efforts nila,” she said.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PBA Finals: Hotshots need to believe they can win Game 7

In the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup Finals, Magnolia only lasted five games to San Miguel Beer. In 2019, the Hotshots find themselves in Game 7. More importantly, they were not the ones that forced Game 7. Magnolia actually led for so long in the series and are now looking to recover in time to end the greatest All-Filino dynasty the PBA has ever seen. “Blessed pa rin kami na nakarating kami dito sa Game 7 na ito,” forward Ian Sangalang said after the Hotshots took a beating in Game 6 of the Finals Sunday. “Kami lang talaga naniniwala na makakarating kami dito,” he added. Belief has been a huge driving force in Magnolia’s charge in this series and the Hotshots will continue to rely on that factor to try and win this Philippine Cup title. This highly-competitive series has gone down to a decisive Game 7 and the Hotshots are fine with that. They’ll take that chance. “Masarap maglaro ng Game 7 as long na i-enjoy lang namin ito tsaka confident lang kami, siguro makukuha namin,” Sangalang said. “Masarap talaga laruin yung Game 7. Syempre ito yung binigay, edi ito yung lalaruin namin. Mag-group lang kami ulit, maging positive lang kami tsaka kailangan lang namin talagang maniwala na mananalo kami sa Wednesday,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twittter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA Finals: Hotshots have no reason to be down despite Game 4 beating

Magnolia wanted a long series against defending champion San Miguel Beer in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup Finals to have a chance. Now, the Hotshots got that long series but whether or not the development will favor them remains to be seen. Following Wednesday’s Game 4, Magnolia has lost its 2-1 series lead and the All-Filipino Finals will now go for at least six games, one more than last year featuring the same two teams. “Sana ganun no, yun naman hinihiling ni Coach Chito [Victolero] samin. Habang tumatagal yung series, feeling niya okay para samin,” guard Paul Lee said. Sana lahat umayon samin. Pero hindi pa naman matatapos, kailangan talaga namin paghirapan. San Miguel they’ll show championship character,” he added. Despite taking a beating in Game 4, the Hotshots are still only staring at a tied series. Magnolia has never been actually down in these Finals and there’s no reason for them to do so now even though they just lost by 16 tio the Beermen. “Wala naman reason para ma-down kami ngayon. Isipin na lang namin kung saan galing yung team namin, kung paano nag-start yung team namin dito sa conference,” Lee said, noting on the adversity Magnolia has gone through before actually making the Finals. “I think wala na dahilan para maging down samin,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

UAAP Season 81 Final Four: Hindi pa kami tapos – Guino-o

Not today. Graduating players Heather Guino-o, Jerrili Malabanan and setter Kyle Negrito made sure that Saturday’s match won’t be their last game as part of the Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws. The seniors gave everything they got to carry FEU past twice-to-beat Ateneo de Manila University, 10-25, 25-23, 25-22, 12-25, 15-8, and force a decider in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball Final Four at the MOA Arena. “Sobrang saya sa pakiramdam kasi dito namin malalaman eh kung last na namin ito o magtutuluy-tuloy pa kami. Pero pinatunayan namin na hindi pa po kami tapos,” said Guino-o, who led the Lady Tamaraws with 17 points. The do-or-die match is set on Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.    “I told the team earlier during the game that this wasn’t gonna be our last game. We’re really happy we achieved that goal,” said Malabanan, who scored eight markers. “Me and Kyle and Heather like last night we had a meeting and then we told each other that this isn’t gonna be our last game,” added Malabanan. “We’re happy that our season is extended.” The Lady Tams won against the Lady Eagles for the first time this season and it came in a situation that FEU’s very familiar with. For the sixth time in seven five-setter matches this season, the Lady Tams emerged victorious. FEU broke a 7-7 deadlock in the fifth set with a pivotal 6-0 rally capped by a Malabanan hit for a 13-7 advantage. Maddie Madayag stopped the bleeding for Ateneo with a kill block on Malabanan but the Lady Eagles committed back-to-back miscues to yield the match. “Kahapon pa lang iniisip na namin na hindi kmai papayag na huli na naming laro ito. Hindi pwedeng huli na namin silang makakasamang maglaro. Kaya sobrang saya po, sobrang sarap sa pakiramdam na na-extended pa,” said Guino-o.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PBA FINALS: “We Believe” Hotshots back in play for SMB rematch

Magnolia went the “We Believe” route in the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup. It resulted with a PBA championship, the franchise’s first in four years. For the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup Finals, a rematch against four-time champion San Miguel Beer, the Hotshots are going with the same “We Believe” mindset. Who knows, it might just actually end a dynasty and start a new one. “Mahirap pero ako, naniniwala ako na pag lumaban kami, pwede kaming manalo,” Magnolia forward Ian Sangalang said. “Pwede rin kaming matalo. Well, makikita na lang namin siguro. Yung dadalhin lang namin dito yung sinasabi namin lagi na,“ We believe.” Pag tuluy-tuloy kaming naniwala, siguro may chance kami talaga na mag-champion,” he added. After losing last year’s Finals in five games, the Hotshots believe they have a better chance now. Winning the 2018 Governors’ Cup title is one huge reason for that. Magnolia proved they can also win. “Siguro mas okay kami ngayon kasi mas madami kaming pinagdaanan na series. Mas madami kaming experience na pinagdaanan,” Sangalang said. “Ayun nga, dalhin lang namin yung sa mindset namin lagi na hindi gumi-give up, na positive lang kami lagi, tapos ayun nga, yung maniwala lang kami sa bawa’t isa, siguro maganda yung kinalalabasan,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: No regrets for Yap, ROS after bitter Game 7 loss

Rain or Shine certainly gave its best and so the Elasto Painters have no regrets in losing Game 7 of the Philippine Cup semifinals to Rain or Shine in overtime. However, there are always some key moments where one wishes he could have a second chance. For James Yap, his last shot of the game could have been different if he had another crack at it. Down two with less than 10 second to go, Yap drove the lane and was met with multiple Magnolia defenders at the basket. He missed and Game 7 was pretty much over there. “Mayroon pa rin pumapasok sa isip mo na, ‘Yung last shot ko sayang talaga. Dapt jinumpshot ko yun,’” Yap said. “Basta alam mo sa sarili mo na binigay mo best mo [no regrets]. Siguro hindi lang talaga para sayo,” he added. After a bitter Game 7 loss where they lost a 17-point lead in the second half, Yap says ROS will only grow stronger. If the Elasto Painters find themselves in another Game 7 situation, they can react better after getting a first-hand demonstration of how to get things done courtesy of the Hotshots. “Siguro yung experience malaking bagay pa rin yun kasi sila kaka-champion lang nila so yung experience na kapag gitgitan yung laro, nandoon talaga. Kami, medyo nagpa-panic pa, especially itong Game 7 pa,” Yap said. “Ako happy ako na nangyari din sa amin ito, malaking bagay sa amin ito as a team. Gusto ko yung ganito na natututo yung mga teammates ko and team, dito kami magiging solid pagdating sa mga ganitong laro, kailangan relaxed lang,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Romeo in the middle of Globalport's maturation process

Terrence Romeo is in the middle of the ongoing maturity of Globalport as a team in 2017. Since they suffered a 26-point fourth quarter collapse to Phoenix late last year, the Batang Pier have won back-to-back games, playing well enough in crunch time to hold on for victories even if they still have a tendency to let go of big leads. It's a lesson they would probably take for the rest of their careers. 'Tumatak yun, kasi parang isa yata yun sa biggest comeback eh,' said Terrence Romeo and he's absolutely right as the Phoenix rally was the biggest fourth-quarter miracle in a decade. 'Dapat di na mangyari yun,' he added. In order to not let that sort of thing happen again, Romeo is leading by example for Globalport as the dynamic guard out of FEU has slowly learned to pick his spots in games. Sure, he's still scoring an insane amount of points (27.6 points per game after Friday's 32-point effort), but the Bro is timing his scoring explosions effectively. Romeo scored a season-high 22 points in the first half against the Road Warriors, setting the tone early for Globalport. He then took a backseat in the third perid and allowed runningmate Stanley Pringle do his thing. But when NLEX cut a once 21-point lead to eight in the fourth and final quarter, it was Romeo that put the finishing touches for the Batang Pier, scoring another seven points for good measure. 'Natutunan ko yun nung mga last games ko,' Romeo admits. 'Pagka first half okay laro ko, pagdating ng third and fourth pag pinilit ko pa rin na ako pa rin, masyadong nakatutok sakin yung depensa. Ginawa ko nag spot up lang ako, hinayaan ko sila maglaro.' 'Pero pag tingin ko naman na kailangan nila ako, kukunin ko din ang bola at didiskarte din ako,' he added. Aside from managing his scoring opportunities, part of Romeo and Globalport's maturation process is not to get excited over one big win. With a chance to go for the top-2 spots in the All-Filipino and a matchup against the mighty San Miguel Beer on the horizon, the Batang Pier remain all business. 'Kailangan wag namin isipin yung panalo namin dito, hindi naman sa minamaliit namin yung NLEX pero kailangan yung goal namin is mapunta dun sa number one or number two so hindi kami pwede matuwa dahil natalo namin NLEX. Kumbaga after one day celebration, next day back to focus na kami,' Romeo said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»
