UAAP 80 VOLLEYBALL: Mabibigyan ko siguro ng passing grade -- De Jesus on DLSU s opening day win

De La Salle University head coach Ramil De Jesus didn’t like the way the grand slam-seeking Lady Spikers took their opening day win in the UAAP Season 80 women’s volleyball tournament on Saturday. The multi-titled mentor gave his squad a passing grade for his players’ composure at crunch time as the Lady Spikers outlasted University of Sto. Tomas and Sisi Rondina’s monster offensive outing in a 25-20, 17-25, 25-22, 15-25, 15-8, win at the MOA Arena.     “So sa ngayon, mabibigyan ko siguro ng passing grade kasi nanalo although makikita mo naman ‘yung character pagdating ng fifth set, ‘yun ‘yung mas maganda,” he said. The Taft-based squad receive a beating in the fourth set, trailing behind by as much as 6-16 that the DLSU failed to overhaul. But the battle-tested squad behind reigning Most Valuable Player Majoy Baron bared their teeth as they repelled the gutsy Tigresses to spoil the 28-point outing of Rondina.    Baron, who had 19 points, showed her leadership in the fifth leading DLSU to victory.  “Siguro ‘yung sinasabi lang sa akin ni coach na kapag yung mga kasama ko nawawala na, kailangan nako-compose pa rin ako,” she said. “So ‘yun lang siguro yung inisip ko and nahawa na rin siguro yung mga kasama ko.” DLSU raced to a 5-0 lead capped by sophomore setter Michelle Cobb’s back-to-back aces. The Tigresses, behind battalion of fans cheering them on, mounted a rally to close the gap, 6-5. DLSU built a 10-6 cushion only to see UST score two straight points to inch closer, 10-8, on a Rondina kill.        UST committed three straight errors that gave DLSU some breathing space, 13-8. Tin Tiamzon pounded a kill to put the Lady Spikers at match point before Cobb sealed the victory with a block on Rondina. The Lady Spikers will take on University of the Philippines on February 10.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Squires and Staglets still in a dead heat for fourth spot

strong>STANDINGS /strong> br /> Malayan 12-2 br /> CSB-LSGH 10-4 br /> San Beda 9-5 br /> Letran 9-6 br /> San Sebastian 8-6 br /> LPU 7-8 br /> Arellano 6-8 br /> Perpetual 4-9 br /> JRU 5-9 br /> EAC 1-14 One team is in and already has twice-to-beat advantage, two teams are knocking on the door of the other playoff incentive, and four teams still have a shot at the fourth and final playoff berth in the NCAA 93 Juniors Basketball Tournament. Fourth-running Colegio de San Juan de Letran and fifth-running San Sebastian College-Recoletos are still not that far from each other in the playoff race after separate wins on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. The Squires were almost at the wrong end of an upset before digging deep and hacking out an 86-85 overtime victory versus Emilio Aguinaldo College. Neil Tolentino scored 15 points and was backstopped by Enoch Valdez who posted 12 points and nine rebounds. It was the backcourt tandem of Russelle Aniban and Keith Peralta, however, who connived for nine points in the extra period to spark the Squires back into the win column. Standing at 9-6, the Intramuros-based squad remains well within the top four and still within striking distance of the top two. Right behind them are the Staglets who continued their stampede with a 101-91 overtime victory versus Lyceum of the Philippines University. Damie Cuntapay posted monster numbers of 26 points and 19 rebounds as Baste won for the sixth time in a row and for the eighth time in 14 games. The win not only moved San Sebastian forward and closer to the top four, it also dragged down the sixth-running Junior Pirates to 7-8. John Barba led them in the losing effort with 27 points. Yesterday, defending champion Malayan High School of Science re-asserted its mastery over upstart contender College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills, 71-62. Carl Lacap and Joaqui Garcia topped the scoring column with 14 and 13, respectively, but it was the Red Robins’ team effort that fueled their ascent to a still league-leading 12-2. Clint Escamis continued to do it all with 11 points, 14 rebounds, and four assists while twin towers Warren Bonifacio and Will Gozum merged for 14 markers and 17 boards. With the elimination round sweep of their closest competitors thus far in the tournament, the defending champions have now clinched twice-to-beat advantage for the next round. On the other hand, the Junior Blazers suffered their second straight setback and now stand at 10-4. They remain at solo second. Hot on their heels is San Beda High School which exacted revenge on Arellano High School with a resounding rout, 94-65. Luke Sese was the high man with 18 points, but all but one of the 14 Red Cubs sent in contributed at least two points in the scoring column. Now at 9-5, third-running San Beda is breathing down the necks of CSB-LSGH for the only playoff incentive left. The outlook is the opposite for the 6-8 Braves who need to win out in their remaining assignments while also hoping the four teams ahead of them take a stumble. In other results, Jose Rizal High School brought a 35-point beatdown to University of Perpetual Help, 86-51.
