RJ Abarrientos u-turns from plan to play one year in NCAA Jrs.

RJ Abarrientos will remain in Far Eastern University – whether or not he makes it into the Seniors Team A for UAAP Season 81. “Wala naman pong problema sa akin kung mag-Team B muna ako. Napag-usapan din naman kasi namin ni tito na dapat tapusin ko yung paglalaro ko rito sa FEU,” the nephew of Philippine basketball legend and Tamaraw pride Johnny Abarrientos shared. In the last three years, RJ has been starring for the Baby Tamaraws in the UAAP Juniors. Last season, he averaged 13.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 4.8 assists to help his team make the playoffs before they fell to University of Sto. Tomas in the stepladder. He committed to FEU Seniors early this year, but with a glut of guards already entrenched in Morayta such as speedster Jasper Parker, scorer Wendell Comboy, heady Axel Inigo, versatile RJ Ramirez, and prized recruit L-Jay Gonzales, his place in Team A for the upcoming collegiate wars was yet to be made certain. That is why the now 18-year-old, already over the UAAP Juniors’ age limit, was mulling a short stint in the NCAA Juniors. There, he would have been able to play one more season as the league’s age limit is 19. As reported by Reuben Terrado of spin.ph, Abarrientos had an offer to suit up for powerhouse Mapua High School. As it turns out, though, defending champion and rising power College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills was also in play for his services. However, after much thought, the 5-foot-11 guard has decided to stay put in FEU. “Blessed naman ako kasi maganda na yung nasimulan ko as a Tamaraw. Ito na yung inspirasyon ko going to college,” he said. And whatever happens, he will wear no color other than green and yellow. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

BEST OF 5 Part 4: LPU can thank cellphones for all of this

Read Part 1 of ABS-CBN Sports’ Best of 5 series on the LPU Pirates here. Read Part 2 of ABS-CBN Sports’ Best of 5 series on the LPU Pirates here. Read Part 3 of ABS-CBN Sports’ Best of 5 series on the LPU Pirates here. --- Topex Robinson has laid the groundwork, and it was finally time to build something in Lyceum of the Philippines University. Just like he had off-court, the always amiable mentor also had grand plans on-court for the Pirates. Having a plan is different from getting it done, however. “It was hard. I already had a vision of what I wanted my team to be and I made sure I articulated my vision,” he shared. “Obviously, getting people wasn’t easy, but if they know that you’re going to a direction, you would attract those people who shared my vision.” And so, slowly but surely, Robinson’s staff was being filled by the likes of Rommel Adducul, a former big-time professional player, and Jeff Perlas, a highly-esteemed assistant in coaching circles. In terms of players, however, still nothing much was going for the Intramuros-based squad. GAME-CHANGER Until one phone call. Robinson personally fetched CJ Perez from Ateneo de Manila University after the latter learned that his academic deficiencies would force him to sit out the season. Earlier that day, Perez called Robinson and told him all that was happening. Right then and there, the former had an offer for the latter. “When CJ left Ateneo, I gave him an opportunity with us, pero ang sabi ko, ‘You can go to any team.’ He said he wanted to play for me,” the head coach said. “I said, ‘Are you sure? Because all of the collegiate teams are gonna get you and gonna offer you anything you want.’ But he committed to us and I appreciate the trust he gave me.” PRODIGAL SON Indeed, LPU had one advantage all others didn’t – Robinson had long been a father figure to Perez as the two were formerly the faces of San Sebastian College-Recoletos for two years. “Isang beses, pinaisip (ni coach Topex) sa amin yung heroes namin tapos napapatingin ako sa kanya. Siya yung iniisip kong hero kasi yung trust na binibigay niya sa akin, sobra-sobrang trust,” the now 23-year-old tantalizing talent shared. “Tinutulungan niya ako, pinu-push niya ako kahit anong magyari. Siya talaga ang nagmo-motivate sa akin.” And so, Perez became a Pirate – without a doubt, the biggest get in the history of their basketball program. However great he is, however, he is just one man. “Obviously, who would love to have a CJ Perez on the team, but again, CJ is just a part of the puzzle. He’s not the whole equation,” Robinson said. “Yes, CJ could win us games, but he could also lose games. People are tagging us as CJ’s team, but it’s very important to get everybody on the same page.” THE STANDARD Indeed, Perez becoming a Pirate is not the rule, but an exception to the rule. As history has proven, Intramuros was not a dream destination for youngsters – be it LPU, be it Colegio de San Juan de Letran, be it Mapua University. And so, the LPU head coach tried to work with whatever he had. “You accept the fact that you will not get the blue-chip players. What you’re really looking for are players who are driven,” he shared. He then continued, “The skill, we could work on that. The character, yung may chip on the shoulder, yun yung kailangan namin.” In other words, he looked for a player like Topex Robinson. “That’s basically how I was as a basketball player. My PBA career, I knew I was not gifted and I knew I had to survive. Pretty much, I was looking for players I could see myself in,” he said. JOIN THE CLUB Fortunately, there were many places to find treasure. And even better, sometimes, treasure comes to find you. Another phone call came – and getting shipped to the Pirates were two talents who would prove to be the perfect pieces for what they wanted to do. “Bago kami sa LPU, galing kaming Adamson. Nung nagbago na yung coach, tumawag na kami kay coach Topex kung pwede niya kaming matulungan,” Jaycee Marcelino narrated. He was referring to the regime change for the Soaring Falcons in 2016 which saw Franz Pumaren take over for Mike Fermin. And for them, it was only their kababayan in Robinson whom they trusted to continue harnessing their potential. “Magkakilala po kami ni coach kasi magkababayan kami. Humingi kami ng tulong para makapaglaro pa rin kami sa pangarap naming liga,” Jayvee, the twin, shared. Robinson and the Marcelinos all hail from Olongapo in Zambalaes. And so, the twins became Pirates – without a doubt, one of the biggest steals in college basketball in recent history. X MARKS THE SPOT And now, Topex Robinson has a crew full of Topex Robinsons. From Perez to the Marcelinos, from glue guy MJ Ayaay to National University outcasts Kim Cinco and Ralph Tansingco, and from forgotten foreign student-athlete Mike Nzeusseu to underrated Reymar Caduyac, all of LPU has something to prove. Whether or not that would be enough to win a championship is not yet certain. What is certain now is that Robinson has a Pirate crew completed in his vision – both on and off the court. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

NCAA Juniors: San Beda Cubs smother Squires; Mapua, Lyceum prevail

This time around, the San Beda Red Cubs got big help underneath from alternate big man Josh Tagala.   Tagala, a 12th grade student, had only eight points, but his 12-rebound output helped the Red Cubs control the boards, and allowed them to coast to a 91-45 smothering of the Letran Squires at the Arena in San Juan.   He and slotman Sam Abu Hijle, who also had eight points, combined for 19 rebounds, and their efforts helped power the Red Cubs to their fourth win in five games in the 93rdNational Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) junior basketball tournament.   “Natutuwa ako. Everyone was sharp.  Pinaghandaan namin itong game,” said Red Cubs coach JB Sison.           The win put the Red Cubs in third spot behind the defending champion Mapua Red Robins and the La Salle Greenhills Junior Blazers.   “For the past three games, di maganda ang rebounding ko. Ito ang focus ko ngayon. Para more possessions for the team,” said Tagala.   Evan Nelle top-scored for a game-high 24 points, probably one of his best performances for the season, while Luke Sese added 15.   The Red Cubs quickly took control of the game with 17-8 advantage even as they took a lot of pain in shutting down one of the Squires prolific players, Enoch Valdez.   With Valdez was held to only three after being scoreless in the first two quarters with Abu Hijle and Germy Mahinay keeping an eye on him.   Nelle hit 11 points in the third period, and with his shots finding their mark for a 53 percent field goal percentage, the Red Cubs went on to enjoy a 60-30 spread at the end of the third.    Mapua-Malayan Science High School 99, EAC 60 Will Gozum led six teammates who scored in double digits as the defending champions Mapua-Malayan High School of Science Red Robins stamped their class on the Emilio Aguinaldo College Brigadiers, 99-60.   Gozum, a transferee from University of the Philippines Integrated School two years ago, made 15 points for the Red Robins, who led by as much as 52 points.   The Red Robins, who had a 55.26 percent shooting clip, went on to pick up win no. 4 and stayed in the solo lead.   Teammates Mike Enriquez, and Jeff Sapinit contributed 14 points while Gerard Sarmiento and team skipper Warren Bonifacio had 12 and 11 points.   “Tulong-tulong lang kaming lahat,” stated Bonifacio.   Bonifacio, Gozum and Sapinit had eight points each in the first period as the Red Robins went on to post a 30-17 edge when the second canto came.    Lyceum Junior Pirates 95, Arellano 85   Vincent Cunanan struck with a career-high 29 points as the Lyceum of the Philippines University fought their way out of a 13-point deficit midway in the game and upset the Arellano Braves 95-85.   John Barba had 16 points, including 10 in the third period.   Marj de Leon scored all of his 10 points in the third as he and Barba stepped in and helped the Junior Pirates turn the tables on the Braves with a 71-67 edge at the end of the third.   Cunanan led a  7-2 run that gave the Pirate an 87-76.   Kobe Camacho showed the way for the Braves with 27 points......»»

Could a VR walk in the woods relieve chronic pain? – CBC News

When pain researcher Diane Gromala recounts how she started in the field of virtual reality, she seems reflective. She had been researching virtual reality for pain since the early 1990s, but her shift to focusing on how virtual reality could be used for chronic pain management began in 1999, when her own chronic pain became worse. Prior to that, her focus was on VR as entertainment. Gromala, 56, was diagnosed with chronic pain in 1984, but the left-sided pain that extended from her lower stomach to her left leg worsened over the next 15 years. &'8220;Taking care of my chronic pain became a full-time job. So at some point I had to make a choice — either stop working or charge full force ahead by making it a motivation for my research. You can guess what I chose,&'8221; she said. Now she's finding that immersive VR technology may offer another option for chronic pain, which affects at least one in five Canadians, according to a 2011 University of Alberta study. &'8220;We know that there is some evidence supporting immersive VR for acute pain, so it's reasonable to look into how it could help patients that suffer from chronic pain.&'8221; Gromala has a PhD in human computer interaction and holds the Canada Research Chair in Computational Technologies for Transforming Pain. She also directs the pain studies lab and the Chronic Pain Research Institute at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, B.C. Using VR to relieve or treat acute pain has been done for a while. In the 1990s, researcher Hunter Hoffman conducted one of the earliest studies looking at VR for pain relief in the University of Wisconsin human interface technology lab. His initial focus was burn victims. Since then, the field has expanded. Gromala's lab focuses on bringing evidence-based therapies that work specifically for chronic pain, such as mindfulness-based stress reduction. They have published studies on their virtual meditative walk to guide and relax patients. Movement and exercise are a key part of chronic pain management in general. But for many patients, it can be too difficult. &'8220;Through VR we can help create an environment where, with a VR headset, they can feel like they are walking through a forest, all while hearing a guided walking meditation,&'8221; Gromala said. The team also designed a meditation chamber — where a person lies in the enclosed space, breathing becomes more relaxed and a jellyfish viewed through VR dissolves. Each experiment gives real-time feedback to the patient through objective measures of pain such as skin temperature and heart rate. For instance, while feeling pain, skin surface temperature and heart rate can increase. While pain medications can be important, chronic pain treatment should also address lifestyle aspects, says Neil Jamensky, a Toronto anesthesiologist and chronic pain specialist. &'8220;Physical rehabilitation therapy, psychological support and optimizing things like nutrition, exercise, sleep and relaxation practices all play key roles in chronic pain management,&'8221; he said. Other researchers like Sweden's Dr. Max Ortiz-Catalan from Chalmers University of Technology have looked at virtual and augmented reality for phantom limb pain — the particularly challenging syndrome among amputees who experience pain in a limb that is not physically there. In his study, published in The Lancet in December 2016, Ortiz-Catalan demonstrated a 47 per cent reduction in symptoms among VR participants. He believes the reason behind it is a &'8220;retraining&'8221; of the brain, where pathways in the brain effectively re-route themselves to focus more on movement, for instance. &'8220;We demonstrated that if an amputee can see and manipulate a 'virtual' limb — which is projected over their limb stump — in space, over time, the brain retrains these areas. &'8220;Through this retraining, the brain reorganizes itself to focus on motor control and less on pain firing,&'8221; said Ortiz-Catalan. With only 14 patients, this was a pilot study, but he plans to expand the work into a multi-centre, multi-country study later this year. The University of New Brunswick is one of the planned study sites. Others in the United States have published their own findings of VR for chronic pain. Last month, Ted Jones and colleagues from Knoxville released results of their pilot study of 30 chronic pain patients who were offered five-minute sessions using a VR application called &'8220;Cool!&'8221; — an immersive VR program administered through a computer and viewed through a head-mounted device. All reported a decrease in pain while using the app — some decreased by 60 per cent — and post-session pain decreased by 33 per cent. The findings were presented in the journal PLoS. &'8220;What was interesting to observe was that the pain decreased for six to 48 hours post-VR experience. It's not as long as we would like, but does illustrate that relief can be sustained over some period of time,&'8221; Jones said. His team will be expanding the research this year and will also look at how VR can help with the challenging mental health side-effects of chronic pain. Jamensky points out while VR could be a promising treatment one day, one challenge with clinical trials is the dependence on looking at pain scores when assessing the effectiveness of VR. This may overshadow individual patient goals. For instance, while the ability to decrease any individual's pain score from a &'8220;seven out of 10&'8221; to a &'8220;three out of 10&'8221; can be challenging, improving functionality and quality of life can often be more valuable to the patient. &'8220;A pain score may not [&'].....»»

LSGH denies San Beda s entry into NCAA 94 Final Four

STANDINGS LSGH 13-2 (Final Four) MAPUA 11-4 SAN BEDA 10-5 JRU 9-6 LPU 8-7 ARELLANO 6-8 PERPETUAL 6-9 SAN SEBASTIAN 5-10 (eliminated) LETRAN 3-11 (eliminated) EAC 3-12 (eliminated) College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills remains the first and only team assured of a place in the next round of the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament. San Beda High School tried its best to get that as well on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, but was instead resoundingly rejected by the Junior Blazers who registered a 91-78 come-from-behind win. Main man Joel Cagulangan topped the scoring column with 24 points to go along with six rebounds and three assists, but only made 9-of-22 shots from the field In the endgame, it was Sydney Mosqueda who came through, scoring 10 of his 19 points in the tight final frame. “We’re happy with the win because our boys showed resiliency,” head coach Marvin Bienvenida said post-game. The defending champions were down by five points inside the last four minutes until Mosqueda went on a 5-0 run to tie the tally. The Red Cubs again took the lead, 75-72, and even had a chance to increase it, but Inand Fornilos stole the ball and the possession from them. At the other end, Mosqueda then set up Fornilos for an easy look inside that proved to be the go-ahead basket. San Beda would keep coming from that point, but Cagulangan had all the answers for CSB-LSGH which strengthened its stranglehold on the top-seed. Now at 13-2, they are one win away from clinching the twice-to-beat advantage. “We are still taking it one game at a time. We are not done proving to ourselves that we are getting better each and every game,” coach Marvin said. For the now 10-5 Red Cubs, Zach Estacio showed the way with 13 points while Joshua Lazaro also had a 10-point, 12-rebound double-double. A win would have assured them of at least a playoff for a Final Four spot. Instead, they now find themselves still behind 11-4 Mapua High School and barely ahead of 9-6 Jose Rizal High School and 8-7 Lyceum of the Philippines University. In the day’s other game, University of Perpetual Help stayed alive after beating down San Sebastian College-Recoletos, 82-67. Emman Galman was on fire all game long and wound up with a career-best 30 points and was backstopped by Tony Ogunsanya who posted a 20-point, 14-rebound double-double. Just at halftime, Galman already had 17 markers to his name, almost matching the output of their opponents at 22. At 6-9, the Junior Altas still have a boxer’s chance at snatching a playoff berth. On the other hand, now at 5-10, the Staglets are no longer in contention for the Final Four. Kean Baclaan fronted their effort in this one with 24 points, six rebounds, five steals, and four assists.
