Mapua, EAC barge into win column in Filoil Preseason

Mapua University and Emilio Aguinaldo College both scored convincing victories, Thursday at Filoil Flying V Centre to break through into the winner's circle of the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. The Cardinals routed Arellano University, 85-65, on the back of a powerful double-double Warren Bonifacio. Bonifacio, their incoming second-year versatile forward, was tireless en route to 14 points and 14 rebounds in just 24 minutes of play. Fellow big men Christian Bunag and Denniel Aguirre brought the backup with 14 and 13 points, respectively, as they got off to a strong 25-4 opening frame and never looked back en route to their first win in four games. Meanwhile, the Generals dug deep and stood strong in the face of a late rally from National University to come away with a 77-73 decision. Jethro Mendoza top-scored with 20 points and five rebounds while JP Maguliano also added 12 markers and five boards of his own for the San Marcelino-based squad which evened its standing to 1-1. For the Chiefs (0-2), returning guard Kent Salado showed the way with 17 points while for the Bulldogs, Dave Ildefonso fronted the effort with 17 markers, six rebounds, and four assists.

La Salle, Adamson, FEU all bounce back in Filoil Preseason

De La Salle University, Adamson University, and National University all barged back into the winner’s circle of the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament following separate wins, Tuesday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Encho Serrano made sure the Green Archers moved on from heartbreak, shooting his side to a 68-61 win. The incoming second-year swingman had 15 points, eight rebounds, and three assists. Andrei Caracut and Justine Baltazar brought the backup as the former had 11 points, four rebounds, and three assists and the latter nine markers, 12 boards, and three blocks. That was more than enough for the Taft-based team to bounce back from a heartbreaking overtime loss to the University of the Philippines they suffered last Sunday. For their part, the Soaring Falcons leaned on new foreign student-athlete Lenda Douanga to get the better of College of St. Benilde, 82-75. Congolese Douanga posted a powerful 19-point, 16-rebound double-double and was backstopped by the backcourt of Jerrick Ahanmisi and Jerom Lastimosa who scored 17 and 16 markers, respectively. Those three were on-point from start to finish and ultimately brought their team to a 2-1 standing.   Also scoring a well-earned win are the Bulldogs who rallied by Far Eastern University, 82-77. Dave Ildefonso topped the scoring column with 19 points on top of five rebounds as the Bulldogs rode a 29-9 final frame all the way to their first win after a tournament-opening loss. With their respective losses, the Cardinals remained winless in three tries and the Blazers and Tamaraws both fell to 0-2. BOX SCORES FIRST GAME NU 82 -- D.

JC Marcelino captains LPU to smooth sailing start in Filoil Preseason

Even sans CJ Perez and MJ Ayaay, Lyceum of the Philippines University looked formidable as ever in a 70-57 triumph over NCAA rival College of St. Benilde, Monday at the Filoil Flying V Centre that commenced its campaign in the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. As expected, now-lead guard Jaycee Marcelino did the steering, with his 15 points, three rebounds, and two steals leading the Pirates to victory. Cameroonian powerhouse Mike Nzeusseu brought the backup with a 12-point, 12-rebound double-double while transferee guard Renzo Navarro and second-year forward Enoch Valdez chimed in six markers apiece. It was Marcelino, though, who engineered LPU's big fourth quarter drive which saw them outscore their opponents, 16-7. That was more than enough to be the difference between the two teams, giving the decision to the Intramuros-based squad which has embarked on a new voyage without Perez and Ayaay who are now both playing in the PBA. For the Blazers, sophomore guard Robi Nayve and first-year big man Jay Pangalangan topped the scoring column with 12 points each. Playing without main man Justin Gutang and floor leader Yankie Haruna, however, upstart CSB was unable to keep up with NCAA powerhouse LPU. In the day's other game, Centro Escolar University also breezed to an 84-65 victory versus Mapua University. Senegalese Maodo Malick Diouf was too much for his defenders and pounded in 19 points. Justin Serrano and Denniel Aguirre paced the Cardinals with 17 and 16 points, respectively.

NCAA 95: Squires take down formerly undefeated Jr. Altas

STANDINGS San Beda 3-0 LPU 2-0 Perpetual 2-1 JRU 2-1 Arellano 1-1 San Sebastian 1-1 CSB-LSGH 1-1 Letran 1-3 Mapua 0-2 EAC 0-3 Colegio de San Juan de Letran has, at long last, barged into the win column in the NCAA 95 Juniors Basketball Tournament. Not only that, the Squires did it while also sending a statement, toppling erstwhile unbeaten University of Perpetual Help, 70-52, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Gilas Pilipinas Youth forward Joshua Ramirez turned in his best game in blue and red with a 26-point, 10-rebound double-double on top of four assists while CJ Saure also added 18 markers and five boards of his own for their breakthrough win after four games. Letran took control right from tip-off and after a tight first quarter, dominated the middle periods, 38-20. It didn't hurt them either that the Jr. Altas' super scorer Emman Galman was attending to a personal matter and missed his first game of the tournament. Still, that didn't change the fact that the Squires outworked their opponents with 86 attempts from the field as compared to the other side's 65. For Perps, Shawn Orgo topped the scoring column in place of Galman with 14 points. Unable to get into their groove, however, they suffered their first setback after back-to-back wins over defending champion Mapua High School and last year's runner-up College of St. Benilde-La Salle Green Hills. BOX SCORES LETRAN 70 - Ramirez 26, Saure 18, Argente 8, Tibayan 7, Umali 4, Santiago 4, Romenez 3, Miranda 0, Cauguiran 0, Cabal 0, Omega 0, Delas Alas 0, Flauta 0 PERPETUAL 52 - Orgo 14, Escalante 10, Berwite 6, Manuel 6, Galoy 4, Nunez 4, Gelsano 4, Belazuela 2, Cuevas 2, Dela Cruz 0, Kawamura 0, Angeles 0, Ignacio 0, Banaticla 0 QUARTER SCORES: 15-10, 29-15, 53-40, 70-52 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

NCAA 95: Charcos takes charge as Perpetual takes fight out of Mapua

Ben Adamos walked in the shoes of Prince Eze, but it was Edgar Charcos who made sure University of Perpetual Help didn’t skip a beat in the NCAA 95 Men’s Basketball Tournament as they warded off very game Mapua University, 80-78, Tuesday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Adamos proved to be a good fit in place of last year’s MVP Eze with eight points, 10 rebounds, and two blocks in his debut in wine and gold. With the two teams going at it, however, it was Charcos who took matters in his own hands, going on a personal 8-0 run to break a tied tally at 69-all and build a 77-69 edge in favor of the Altas with 4:10 remaining. "It's a show of character para sa amin. I felt na Mapua is stronger than us, pero it was just guts," a satisfied head coach Frankie Lim said post-game. Of course, the Cardinals kept coming and Laurenz Victoria's triple closed them to within one, 78-79, with 8.2 ticks to go. Sent to the line, though, Charcos wrapped up his team's season-opening win for good by going 1-of-2. In the end, Perps' playmaker wound up with 16 points, all but five coming in the last seven minutes, to go along with eight rebounds, five assists, and two steals. Tonton Peralta topped the scoring column with 20 points while Jielo Razon also added 10 markers, four rebounds, and two assists. "Big game also from Adamos, Jielo, and Tonton. Sabi ko naman sa kanila, wala tayong star, we need team effort," coach Frankie said. For Mapua, Warren Bonifacio showed the way with 15 points and nine rebounds and was backstopped by Cyril Gonzales with 14 markers, five assists, five steals, and three boards. Despite the season-opening loss, the young Cardinals proved they will be no pushovers under new head coach Randy Alcantara. BOX SCORES PERPETUAL 80 - Peralta 20, Charcos 16, Razon 10, Egan 9, Aurin 9, Adamos 8, Giussani 2, Lanoy 2, Cuevas 2, Barasi 2, Lucero 0, Martel 0 MAPUA 78 - Bonifacio 15, Gonzales 14, Garcia 9, Nieles 8, Victoria 6, Salenga 6, Serrano 5, Hernandez 4, Lugo 4, Bunag 3, Aguirre 2, Jabel 2, Gamboa 0, Dela Cruz 0 QUARTER SCORES: 21-22, 39-45, 64-63, 80-78 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PVL: Perlas Spikers zero in on semis spot playoff

BanKo goes for at least a playoff for a Final Four seat when the Perlas Spikers clash with also-ran BaliPure on Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Reinforced Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Game time is set at 5:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream. BanKo is coming off a pulsating win last Sunday over Motolite, 19-25, 23-25, 25-18, 25-22, 17-15, to arrest a three-game losing skid for a 3-5 win-loss slate.  Nicole Tiamzon, who scored 19 points the last time out, spearheads the Perlas Spikers' charge to spark a late winning run with two playdates remaining in the elimination round. "Last two games ito ang pinakaimportante. All out pa rin kami," said Tiamzon, who will be backed by Thai import Sutadta Cheuwulim, Turkish reinforcement Yasemin Yildirim, Kathy Bersola and Suzanne Roces. Meanwhile, with a 0-8 card, the Water Defenders are just looking to end their campaign on a high note, playing with nothing to lose. "Ang gusto lang namin makita ay ma-develop sila as individuals and as a team. Kasi looking forward na kami sa next conference and gusto namin going to the next conference ay may baon naman kaming maganda," said BaliPure coach Rommel Abella. Slovenian Alexandra Vajdova, Montenegrin Danijela Dzakovic, Grazielle Bombita, Satrianni Espiritu and Sandra Delos Santos will try to help the Water Defenders barge in the win column. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Mau delivers in debut for 2-0 Cargo Movers

Fil-American Kalei Mau debuted with na bang for F2 Logistics as she powered the Cargo Movers to a 25-15, 27-25, 25-22, demolition of PLDT Home Fibr on Tuesday in the 2019 Superliga All-Filipino Conference at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Mau, who missed the team’s first game to give her more time to learn head coach Ramil De Jesus’ system, hammered 14 kill blocks with two aces and a kill block for 17 points for F2 Logistics, which won their second straight match. “Not bad para sa unang game ng bago sa team,” said De Jesus referring to Mau, who had 14 digs and eight excellent receptions. Team captain Aby Marano, Ara Galang and Kim Kianna Dy scored nine markers each for the Cargo Movers. Grethcel Soltones and Gen Casugod had 14 and 11 points, respectively, for PLDT.     Meanwhile, Generika-Ayala vented its ire on Marinerang Pilipinas following a 25-18, 25-15, 25-23 win for a 1-1 win-loss slate. After getting blown out by F2 Logistics straight sets in the opener last Saturday, the Lifesavers bounced back to barge into the win column, sending the Lady Skippers to their second straight loss in one hour and 23 minutes. Patty Orendain, who struggled on opener, put up an all-around performance for Generika-Ayala with 18 points off 15 attacks, a pair of aces and a block and had 16 digs and eight excellent receptions. Ria Meneses and Fiola Ceballos had 11 points each while Angeli Araneta added eight markers for the Lifesavers. Dimdim Pacres was the lone double digits scorer with 11 points while Chiara Permentilla scored seven markers off the bench for the Lady Skippers. In the other match, Elaine Kasilag finished with a game-high 20 points in Foton’s 17-25, 25-18, 25-16, 25-21, victory over Sta. Lucia. Didin Santiago-Manabat had 16 points while Jaja Santiago and Maika Ortiz posted 11 markers apiece for the Tornadoes, which recovered from a poor start. MJ Phillips led the Lady Realtors with 19 points while Amanda Villanueva finished with 13 markers, 13 digs and 12 excellent receptions in a lost cause.  .....»»

FEU charges through UAAP rival Adamson in Filoil Preseason

Far Eastern University climbed out of .500 in the standings of the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament with a 66-63 triumph over UAAP rival Adamson University, Monday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Cameroonian big man Patrick Tchuente fueled the fire with 14 points while Ken Tuffin and Hubert Cani chimed in 12 and 11 markers, respectively, for the Tamaraws who got a third consecutive victory following back-to-back losses to begin the preseason. That was more than enough to overcome an off game from rising star L-Jay Gonzales who only had two points from his name in this one. For the Soaring Falcons, Congolese bruiser Lenda Douanga topped the scoring column with 17 points. With Jerrick Ahanmisi misfiring, however, they fell for the fourth time in five games. Meanwhile, Lyceum of the Philippines University unleashed its new secret weapon on an unsuspecting Jose Rizal University for an 86-79 decision. Transferee Jayson David made his presence felt with 16 points while Jaycee Marcelino brought the backup with 13 markers of his own as the Pirates sailed to a 5-1 record. In other results, Emilio Aguinaldo College came out on top of College of St. Benilde, 78-69, for its second win in seven starts.

Arellano upsets Baste for Filoil Preseason breakthrough

Arellano University finally broke through under new head coach Cholo Martin, pulling off a 75-69 upset of San Sebastian College-Recoletos, Thursday at Filoil Flying V Centre Archie Concepcion spearheaded the attack with 21 points while Rence Alcoriza chimed in 15 markers of his own as the Chiefs scored their first win in five games in the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. In doing so, they also put the first blemish on the erstwhile perfect record of the Golden Stags who dropped to 3-1. Arellano’s breakthrough was made even more impressive by the fact that it was without floor leader Kent Salado who was attending to family matters as well as rotation big man Justin Arana who suffered an injury early in the game. Still, the Chiefs overcame those obstacles and ultimately gifted coach Cholo his first win after replacing Jerry Codinera. For Baste, RK Ilagan topped the scoring column with 21 points. Meanwhile, Far Eastern University yet again showed its horns, dropping Emilio Aguinaldo College, 73-72. Rising star L-Jay Gonzales showed the Tamaraws the way to an even 2-2 slate with 15 points. On the other hand, the now 1-5 Generals were paced by Marwin Taywan with 26 points.

Spencer comes up clutch as UP comes alive anew in Filoil Preseason

Jun Manzo took the lead once more before James Spencer took matters in his own hands in the endgame as the University of the Philippines powered through for a well-earned 68-62 win against UCBL champion Centro Escolar University, Saturday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Manzo topped the scoring column with 17 points on top of six assists, three rebounds, and three steals, but it was Spencer who scored the Fighting Maroons' last five points in their bounce back win in the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. Playing without all of Juan Gomez de Liano, Kobe Paras, and Ricci Rivero, State U needed each and every one of the 32 minutes Manzo was on the floor to steady the ship. Still, the Scorpions kept coming and Maodo Malick Diouf's inside basket pulled them within one, 62-63, inside the last two minutes. The two teams then traded defensive stops before Spencer decided to take and then make a triple that re-increased the UP edge to four. Another defensive stop and two free throws from the Filipino-Australian guard later and the Fighting Maroons improved to 3-2. Spencer wound up with 11 points and nine rebounds while Bright Akhuetie also added 13 markers and seven boards. BOX SCORES UP 68 -- Manzo 17, Akhuetie 13, Spencer 11, Ja. Gomez de Liano 7, Gozum 7, Tungcab 6, Longa 3, Murrell 2, Gob 2, Webb 0, Jaboneta 0, Prado 0. CEU 62 -- Diouf 28, Fuentes 13, Uri 7, Rojas 6, Ke.

La Salle scores big in Filoil Preseason; JRU gets first win in new era
