PBA: June Mar dominates again as Beermen score third straight win

Columbian just has no answer for June Mar Fajardo. June Mar feasted on the Dyip once again, leading the defending champion San Miguel Beermen to a convincing 129-117 win over the Dyip Wednesday in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup at the Big Dome. San Miguel was only up eight after three but then June Mar happened in the fourth period. The reigning four-time league MVP was simply unstoppable in the final 12 minutes and he ended up finishing with 37 points and 18 rebounds. 17 points came in the fourth period. Renaldo Balkman was right behind him, scoring 27 points on top of 18 boards while Alex Cabagnot had himself a triple double of 20 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists. "First of all ano, maraming salamat sa Panginoon at binigyan kami ng panalo. Alam naman natin na napakahirap manalo. And every time we will be facing KIA, I'm really worried because we have history with this team. Even though in the elimination or in the tune-up game, hirap na hirap kami manalo dito," head coach Leo Austria said. "Masaya ko na nanalo kami, pero malungkot ako dahil we gave up 117 points. So, it's not an indication na we're playing well sa defense ano. In order for us to win games, in the next few games, we have to play defense," he added. San Miguel was having trouble putting away Columbian in the first three quarters. But then the Beermen just unleashed the Kraken in the fourth and now the champs have fully recovered from their winless start to the conference. San Miguel is back to .500 halfway throuh its campaign and will work with a 3-3 mark moving forward. The Dyip are a complte opposite as they dropped their third straight game for a 3-5 record. John Fields, Rashawn McCarthy, and Reden Celda each scored 19 points for Columbian in the loss.   The Scores: San Miguel (129): Fajardo 37, Balkman 27, Cabagnot 20, Santos 18, Ross 10, Mamaril 6, Lassiter 6, Pessumal 5, Ganuelas-Rosser 0, Lanete 0, Vigil 0 Columbian (117): McCarthy 19, Fields 19, Celda 19, Ababou 14, Lastimosa 13, Camson 12, Khobuntin 9, Tubid 6, Escoto 6, King 0, Cahilig 0, Corpuz 0, Cabrera 0    --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: SMB’s defense yet to match its offense, says coach Leo

After three losses in a row to begin the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup, defending champion San Miguel is now on a roll with three consecutive victories. The most recent of which coming in a 129-117 thrashing of Columbian on Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum. In being able to stretch their streak at the expense of a team they have had trouble with in the past, Beermen head coach Leo Austria is nothing but satisfied. “Alam naman natin na napakahirap manalo. Every time we (are) facing (Columbian), I’m really worried because we have history with this team,” he told reporters post-game. He then continued, “Even in the eliminations or tuneup games, hirap na hirap kami manalo rito.” Columbian, then known as Kia, owns two upset wins over San Miguel in the last three years. That looked like it was going to be the case again in this one as the Dyip led by as much as 11 in the earlygoing. The defending champions quickly caught up to them, though, and scored no less than 28 points in each of the four quarters. Still, Austria was not a fan of how they allowed 117 points for a Columbian side not exactly known for its offensive firepower. As he put it, “Masaya ako na nanalo kami, pero malungkot ako dahil we gave up 117 points so it’s an indication na we’re (not) playing well sa defense ano. In order for us to win games, we have to play defense.” That is even truer for the multi-titled mentor as their offense is now finally firing on all cylinders – and that is even though top pick Christian Standhardinger is still sidelined. “Offensively, hindi nawawala yun, but we need our energy when it comes to facing tougher teams,” he said. He then continued, “We have to improve our defense for us to win and get a chance to get to the quarterfinals and eventually, into the semis or the championship.” Good thing then that the Beermen have done nothing but prove that it will bring the goods when it is most needed. “I know this team e. If we’re facing a team like Ginebra or the (other) top teams, it has a different attitude,” he said. They will have a chance to prove their head coach right once more with 3-4 Globalport, 6-1 TNT, 2-5 NLEX, 1-7 Blackwater, and 3-3 Magnolia all remaining on their schedule. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Games Tuesday: (Paco Arena, Manila) 2:00 p.m. - AMA Online Education vs McDavid 4:00 p.m. - CEU vs Diliman College-Gerry's Grill   University of Santo Tomas obliterated Batangas-EAC, 94-70, to kickstart its 2019 PBA D-League campaign on a high Monday at Paco Arena in Manila. Coach Aldin Ayo proudly paraded his new recruits with Beninese forward Soulemane Chabi Yo uncorking 19 points, 11 rebounds, and two blocks to lead the charge.  Pangasinense forward Rhanz Abando also had a rousing debut with his 17 points, nine boards, two dimes, while Brent Paraiso collected eight points, six rebounds, and five assists. Meanwhile, Chadao-FEU hardly broke a sweat in its 84-62 victory over SMDC-NU in the second game. Alec Stockton triggered the rout, firing seven of his 15 points in the Tamaraws' scorching 21-8 first quarter as they easily cruised to their first victory in the Foundation Group. Sophomore guard L-Jay Gonzales did his part for Chadao-FEU with 12 points, three boards, and three assists as he slowly eases in to a bigger role with the team. Ken Tuffin and Branrey Bienes combined for 22 points and six rebounds, as Cameroonian slotman Patrick Tchuente impressed with his nine points, four rebounds, and a block. It was all Tamaraws in this game as they limited the Bulldogs to just 27-percent clip from the field and even took a lead as high as 28, 53-28, midway through the third quarter. Dave Ildefonso carried SMDC-NU in the losing cause with 14 points, five rebounds, and five assists. The Growling Tigers, on the other hand, also unveiled 18-year-old guard Mark Nonoy, who lived up to the hype to pour 15 points, five rebounds, two assists, and one steal as he became the youngest player in PBA D-League history. "Masaya kami kasi nakapaglaro agad ng maayos yung mga bago. Nakapag-adjust sila agad," he said. "Unang liga namin ito na big league. Masaya naman ako na hindi kami masyadong tight and nailabas nila yung laro nila. Yun lang naman, gusto lang namin na mailabas yung pineprepare namin." Abando led the blazing 10-0 start for the Growling Tigers that set the tone for the game, where the boys from Espana annexed the lead to as much as 33, 75-42, late in the third courtesy of Germy Mahinay's free throws.

UAAP Season 81: Ayokong makilala ng tao na kapatid lang ni Ate EJ -- Eya Laure

Celebrated rookie Eya Laure hopes to make waves in the collegiate ranks and prove her worth as part of University of Sto. Tomas’ volleyball team. A multi-awarded player in high school, she is determined to make her own mark and step out of the shadows of her sister EJ and her father, former PBA player Eddie Laure come the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament. “Super excited kasi syempre ayoko rin naman makilala ng tao as kapatid lang ni Ate EJ or anak ni Daddy ganyan,” said the former UAAP girl's volleyball Most Valuable Player. “Gusto ko rin naman makilala kahit papano ng tao kung ano talaga kayang gawin ng isang Eya Laure and ma-perform,” said Laure, a versatile player who has collected recognitions both as a setter and a wing spiker. “Siyempre, ayokong andun lang ako sa shadow nilang dalawa.” Arguably, this season’s finest recruit, Laure gave a glimpse of what she can offer on the table during the pre-season including helping the Tigresses capture the UniGames crown.       A feisty competitor, passionate with high volleyball IQ and undeniable charisma, Laure could complement another fierce Tigress in Sisi Rondina, who is hoping to leave a winning legacy in her swan song. With Eya Laure on board to help Rondina and last year’s Rookie of the Year Milena Alessandrini on offense, the season looks bright for UST to end a nine-year title drought.     “Ako naman siguro it's an honor na rin na maglalaro ako for UST and matutulungan ko yung seniors team din, gagawin ko talaga yung best ko na matulungan sila every game,” she said. Laure is a favorite among fans and pundits but is quick to deflect the tag as a shoo-in for the Rookie of the Year award – the recognition her sister EJ captured back in Season 77. “Ewan ko ha. Hindi ko siya priority talaga eh, I mean ‘yung pagiging Rookie of the Year big deal siguro sa ibang tao pero sa akin,” said Laure. “Hindi kasi siya ganun ka big deal (sa akin) kasi more on andun kasi ako sa bigger picture, na mas madaming matutuwa kung mag-champion kami or magka-place kami this year. ‘Yun ang mas okay sa akin, sa kung saan mas maraming masaya, hindi yung ako lang ang masaya.” Unfortunately, the much-awaited team up of the Laure sisters won’t materialize this year as EJ skipped action for the second straight season following a long layoff after suffering a shoulder injury two years ago.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PBA: Nambatac makes most of first break with ROS

When Rain or Shine drafted Rey Nambatac, the former Letran Knight was to be groomed as the team’s point guard of the future. And with the Elasto Painters losing Chris Tiu to retirement, a huge spot has opened up for Nambatac. Maverick Ahanmisin remains as Rain or Shine’s number 1 point guard now but Nambatac is proving himself as a valuable no. 2 as he eases himself in the PBA in his sophomore season. “Actually last year pinaghahandaan ko na yun eh, kasi anytime soon pwede ako magkaroon ng mahabang minutes or madadagdagan ng konti yung minuto. Ito nangyari ngayon, nagkakatugma dun sa pinaghahandaan ko,” Nambatac said. “Syempre mahirap din punan yung ginagawa ni Chris Tiu eh, so ang sakin lang, dun lang talaga ako mag-stick sa kung ano kulang and pupunan ko yun sa defense. Kasi yung defense, yun yung bread and butter talaga namin,” he added. Nambatac has been consistent so far this season for the Elasto Painters. Friday against Northport, Nambatac was one of six players in double figures with 11 points. More important however, is the fact that Nambatac scored seven of his points in the fourth quarter just as ROS proved to be the steadier team to claim the win. “Masaya ako kasi unti-unti nabibigyan ako ni coach ng break,” Nambatac said. “Ako naman pag nasa loob ng court, pinupunan ko lang kung ano yung kulang sa team, which is yung hustle and defense and hindi ako umaalis dun sa role ko sa team,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Student Desiderio concedes defeat to teacher Cabagnot

Paul Desiderio turned himself into a legendary figure for the University of the Philippines. Along the way, of course, he was helped out by several coaches – one of whom he actually got to play against now in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup. In the matchup between San Miguel and Blackwater on Wednesday at the MOA Arena, Desiderio, arguably the most important Fighting Maroon in recent history, got to guard Alex Cabagnot, who also moonlights as assistant coach for State U. In their faceoff, the Elite’s prized rookie was only happy to report that he proudly showed off what he had learned to Cabagnot himself. “Lahat ng tinuro ni coach Alex, lumabas naman kanina,” he told reporters. Only, Desiderio’s efforts, as well as his team as a whole, were far from enough to stop the Beermen who cruised to a 93-79 win. In particular, the Blackwater youngster did nothing but acknowledge that he ran into a brick wall each and every time Cabagnot was on him. As he put it, “Si coach Alex, alam niya kung saan weakness ko. Kinain tayo ng buhay ng mentor natin.” He then continued, “Teacher tsaka student, siyempre, panalo yung teacher, wala tayong magagawa dun.” In the end, Desiderio only had four points in 2-of-8 shooting to his name. Nonetheless, the UP product said he only relished the rare chance to go at it with a mentor. “Siyempre, masaya na yung mentor mo sa college, kalaban mo na sa PBA. Inisip ko na lang na nandito na kami sa pros e,” he shared. He then continued, “’Di ko na lang inisip na coach ko siya, pero yung respect, nandun pa rin.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

La Salle still spotless in Philippine Baseball League

Coming off an 11-8 win over IPPC a day ago, the De La Salle Green Batters heated up at the right time before romping the UP Fighting Maroons in just seven innings, 18-8, last Sunday at the Rizal Memorial Baseball Stadium. With the win, the Green Batters are just one win away from an elimination round sweep in the Philippine Baseball League. In addition, La Salle clinched the top seed in the semifinals. But for long-time La Salle head coach Joseph Orillana, he was just glad as the Green Batters stepped up after reigning UAAP Athlete of the Year Kiko Gesmundo suffered a shoulder injury. "Masaya ako para sa team. Sabi ko sa kanila, kahit wala si Kiko, kailangan nila mag-step up. Hindi naman puwede na aasa lang kami sa seniors. Kanila na ito e," said Orillana as Gesmundo's first inning dive resulted to a shoulder sprain. The Fighting Maroons, who are coming off their first win of the season last Saturday, were able to keep pace with the league-leaders -- even picking up a 5-4 lead in the fifth inning. Errors, though, plagued UP at the bottom end of the inning while a 2-RBI single by left baseman Paolo Casas served as the go-ahead run. It did not stop there as the Green Batters, who were already up 11-8 entering the seventh inning, punch in seven more runs - capped by Mark Tuballas' errand pitch that hit Diego Lozano with the bases loaded that resulted to the walk-off stoppage. Tuwi Park was once again spectacular for La Salle, going 3-of-4 at-bat with five RBIs. Anton Acuna and Casas had three and two RBIs, respectively. Graduating infielder Boo Borandiaran earned the win for La Salle, pitching the last two innings -- fanning two batters. "Hopefully, sa UAAP magamit namin siya as pitcher," said Orillana as Barandiaran rarely pitched after his sophomore year. "Pinag-fofocus namin siya sa second [base], may times this season na magiging reliever siya. Hindi namin siya binibigla kasi galing siya sa injury." Earlier in the day, the Ateneo Blue Eagles snapped their two-game skid after escaping the UST Golden Sox, 13-12. Gino Tantuico connected on the first home run of the tournament during the first inning. In the last game of the triple-header, the Adamson Soaring Falcons kept their semis hopes alive after blasting the NU Bulldogs in seven innings, 19-3. Adamson will have to await the results of the games on Saturday, January 26 to see if it makes the Final Four......»»

Boxing: Four-division champion Donnie Nietes happy to be part of elite company in Manny Pacquiao and Nonito Donaire Jr.

Donnie Nietes made Filipino boxing history to close out 2018 by becoming the new WBO Super Flyweight World Champion after defeating Japan's Kazuto Ioka via split decision in Macau on New Year's Eve.  With the most recent title win, Nietes became a four-division boxing world champion, becoming just the third Filipino boxer to do it, after eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao and four-division champion Nonito Donaire Jr.  For the Murcia, Negros native, it was definitely a reason for a Happy New Year.  "Siyempre masayang-masaya, kasi nakuha ko na yung ika-apat na division, so masayang-masaya talaga ako ngayon, nakapag-bigay ako ng records sa larangan ng boxing na katulad nila Nonito Donaire Jr. and Manny Pacquiao, na [four division world championships] ang nakuha," Nietes shared with ABS-CBN Sports.  Sharing the stage with Pacquiao and Donaire, both sure-fire boxing Hall of Famers once all is said and done, is quite the honor, says Nietes, and he's glad to be able to have reached the same heights as those two Filipino boxing icons.  "Masayang masaya, kasi naka-abot ako sa level nila Manny Pacquiao and Nonito Donaire Jr. na top Filipino fighter talaga, na kumbaga naka-gawa din ako ng pangalan ko, naka-gawa si Donaire at si Manny Pacquiao ng mga pangalan nila, so masayang-masaya ako ngayon na na-abot ko yun." At this stage in his career, Nietes is no longer what people call an up-and-coming star.  At 36 years old and 48 fights under his belt, the truth is Nietes is nearer to the end of his storied careeer.  "Ahas" himself however, isn't thinking about hanging his gloves up just yet.  "For me, wala pa sa isip ko yung mag-reretire, gusto ko pa makapag-bigay ng karangalan sa ating bansa, yun lang yung gusto ko ngayon, yun yung nag-momotivate sa akin ngayon," he expressed. "Mabigyan ng karangalan yung bansa, makapag-bigay ng honor and pride, yun lang ang nasa isipan ko ngayon," he added......»»
