Lady Bulldogs win 51st straight even as DLSU remains winless

New stars continue to shine for National University as it registered its 51st win in a row dating back to 2014 on Wednesday at the MOA Arena. Trixie Antiquerra fired a career-high 27 points, Jack Daniel Animam turned in her best performance thus far, and Ria Nabalan flirted with a triple-double as the Lady Bulldogs pounded on University of Sto. Tomas, 95-65, for a strong 3-0 start in the UAAP 80 Men’s Basketball Tournament. Antiquerra waxed hot right from the start and had 21 of her career-high in the first two quarters alone. Still, the Tigresses were keeping close and were only behind by three at halftime. “The players just settled down. I told them at halftime that they’re rushing things too much,” head coach Pat Aquino said post-game. Indeed, the third quarter was a different story as the three-time defending champions turned it on and outscored their opponents, 25-14. “Again, it has to be teamwork in the end for a team like this,” Aquino said. In the final frame, Animam and Nabalan then took over and combined for 17 of their team’s 29 points. By themselves, the two outdid UST which only mustered 13. Animam wound up with a 23-point, 18-rebound double-double while Nabalan stuffed the stat sheet with 17 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists, and five steals. By taking down the Tigresses, NU is now the only undefeated team in the tournament. Anjel Anies topped the scoring column for UST with 18 points. Suffering their first setback in three tries, they find themselves in a three-way tie for the second spot with Ateneo de Manila University and Far Eastern Univeristy. Meanwhile, Adamson University scored its first win of the tournament, edging out De La Salle University, 88-84. Nathalia Prado scored a career-best 26 points to lift the Lady Falcons onto the win column now at 1-2. At the same time, they added to the woes of the Lady Archers who remained winless after three games. Ana Castillo paced last year’s runners-up with 19 points. Without a doubt, they continue to miss the services of ace scorer Camille Claro and bigs Susan Al-Mohamen and Benette Revillosa who are all out for the season due to injury.

Ravena flies high as season's first Player of the Week

The Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles are off to an impressive start in UAAP Season 80 after imposing victories over Adamson University, University of the Philippines, and just the other day, Far Eastern University  One of the catalysts of the Eagles’ hot start is third-year forward Thirdy Ravena who was named the Chooks-to-Go UAAP Press Corps Player of the Week for all his effort. The versatile swingman is averaging an all-around 18.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game to lead his team in their pristine 3-0 start. Ravena edged out runners-up Paul Desiderio of UP and Aljun Melecio of De La Salle University who both notched career-highs in scoring Part of last season’s Mythical Five, Ravena shared that he has learned to be a constant force for the Katipunan-based squad this year. “I need to stay more consistent than last season. Last season, I’ll have a good game then polar opposite (the next),” Ravena said. “I’m just mentally focused coming into the season that I need to stay consistent.” Ateneo has won over their opponents by a margin of 17.6 points per game with a variety of Eagles contributing in each outing. Ravena has made headlines with his numbers, but his teammates have been just as valuable - an indication of the team’s unselfishness and versatility. “The players have been terrific, their attitude has been that it doesn't matter how many minutes they play, they come in and they do their job. We'd like to keep it that way,” coach Sandy Arespacochaga said about their depth. “I have to trust my teammates because everyone’s been doing a really good job,” echoed Ravena. “We’ve been winning cause everyone’s staying together and we followed whatever coach Tab (Baldwin) told us.” Ravena and the rest of the Blue Eagles will look to maintain their record unblemished as they take on the University of the East on September 24. .....»»

AS GOOD AS GOLD: Lady Bulldogs win 50th in a row

National University and head coach Pat Aquino have added yet another feather to their cap now in the 80th Season of the UAAP Women’s Basketball Tournament. Turning the rematch of last year’s Finals into a mismatch on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum, the Lady Bulldogs had their way against De La Salle University, 77-56, for their 50th consecutive victory dating back to 2014. Rhena Itesi posted a 21-point, 15-rebound double-double, but it was Ria Nabalan who spearheaded the pivotal push that effectively put the game out of reach. With the Lady Archers mounting some sort of a fightback and trimming their deficit to 49-59 at the end of the third, Nabalan scored six of her 18 points in the 13-0 run that re-established a 72-49 edge for the three-time defending champions. Nabalan also added seven rebounds, four steals, and three assists to make sure their mentor retains his undefeated streak now into a fourth season. The last time NU lost was in the championship round of Season 76 in 2014. Since then, they have dominated UAAP Women’s Basketball with the likes of Afril Bernardino and Gemma Miranda and now, with Congolese Itese and fellow frontcourt player Nabalan. Aquino, however, remained modest as always about his monumental feat. “I never expected in my entire coaching career that I’ll get 50 straight wins, but again, I’ll downplay it. I told my girls not to think about it,” he said. With a 2-0 record, Aquino’s girls find themselves in a three-way tie for first with Ateneo de Manila University and University of Sto. Tomas. He then continued, “I told them that this is a new season so let’s take it one game at a time again.” The Lady Bulldogs imposed what has become their trademark bully basketball on DLSU, dominating inside points, 36-18 as well as rebounds, 56-34. “Siyempre, one factor is our defense,” Aquino said. Jack Daniel Animam was a big part of that with a total of nine points, 21 rebounds, and two blocks. For the Lady Archers, Angelika Figueroa topped the scoring column with 15 points. Without all of ace scorer Camille Claro and bigs Susan Al-Mohamen and Benette Revillosa, however, they just did not have enough to put up a fight against dynastic NU. Runner-up last season, the Taft-based team is yet to win through two games. Meanwhile, together with NU atop the leaderboard are the Tigresses who clawed Adamson University, 75-66. First-year player Jem Angeles had for herself a breakout game with 22 points, seven rebounds, four steals, and two assists and was backstopped by Sai Larosa who was a force with a 16-point, 17-rebound double-double. Behind those two, UST waltzed its way into back-to-back wins to start the season. On the other hand, the Lady Falcons suffered a second straight setback. Jamie Alcoy led them with 14 points and eight rebounds. BOX SCORES FIRST GAME NU 77 – Itesi 21, Nabalan 19, Antiquera 11, Animam 9, Sison 5, Del Carmen 4, Harada 4, Camelo 2, Ano-Os 2, Ceno, Tanesa.
