Romeo looking to move on from Globalport?

Terrence Romeo and Globalport might be headed to a basketball divorce. In a report by Musong Castillo of The Philippine Daily Inquirer on Tuesday, it appears that the high-scoring Batang Pier guard is on the trading block. Castillo cited a source that says Globalport has engaged with the Meralco Bolts for a possible trade with the Batang Pier looking at Chris Newsome and Baser Amer in exchange for Romeo. However, head coach Norman Black is hesitant to trade away Newsome, one of his former players at Ateneo De Manila University in the UAAP. Aside from Meralco, TNT has been involved with Globalport regarding a possible Romeo trade but the KaTropa are still hoping that Mo Tautuaa actually plays like a number one pick. Romeo reportedly asked to be traded during the Commissioner's Cup. Despite coming off another impressive individual season by averaging a league-high 23.3 points on top of 3.7 rebounds and 5.5 assists, Romeo's Globalport squad only made little noise in the grand scheme of things. Tha Batang Pier's best conference was in the Philippine Cup where behind Romeo's 28.2 points per game, the team made it to the quarterfinals only to getr swept by TNT, 2-0. Globalport made the quarters again in the Commissioner's Cup as the 8th seed but got dominated by no. 1 Ginebra. In the Governors' Cup, the Batang Pier missed the playoffs altogether.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Coach Napa: ‘Next year, Letran’s mindset is to become number 1’

After eight years, Rey Nambatac will no longer be in red and blue. That is, in the NCAA, at least, as his new team Rain or Shine sports the same colors. Nonetheless, the Colegio de San Juan de Letran product will be bringing with him his averages of 15.9 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 2.9 assists away fromIntramuros. And yet, even he has no doubt that the Knights will only be a stronger squad next season. “I’m pretty sure they will bounce back hard next year. Para sa akin, ‘di gaano kalaking kawalan na nawala ako kasi ang daming pwedeng mag-fill up ng spot at ng pwesto ko,” he said after their Season 93-ending loss to San Sebastian College-Recoletos a week ago. He then continued, “Kanina, kahit wala ako sa loob, nandoon pa rin yung toughness at intensity nila. Pinakita nila na kaya nilang manalo kahit wala ako.” Nambatac was talking about how, despite him being in foul trouble, Letran still had a fighting chance against the Golden Stags in their do-or-die game. All of that was thanks to the efforts of Bong Quinto and JP Calvo who kept them coming. Both will be back for their final go-round with the Knights next season and will be flanked by fellow returnees Jeo Ambohot, Jerrick Balanza, and Jeremiah Taladua. Those key cogs will then be joined by Jeff Napa recruits in former University of the East standout Bonbon Batiller, former College of St. Benilde tower Christian Fajarito, former De La Salle University power player Larry Muyang, one-time Batang Gilas member Fran Yu, and ex-NAASCU gunner Coy Galvelo. And highlighting just how deep their player pool is, Napa said no one is already certain to be in next year’s NCAA lineup. “Next year, talagang may competition. The talent we have, mabigat yung competition so there’s no assurance kung sino mala-lineup next year,” he said. Still, it’s safe to say that those who made up most of this year’s core in Quinto, Calvo, Ambohot, Balanza, and Taladua along with big-time transferees in Batiller, Fajarito, Muyang, Yu, and Galvelo will be making the cut. And that lineup – with skilled bigs in Ambohot, Fajarito, and Muyang; versatile forwards in Balanza and Quinto; and talented guards in Batiller, Calvo, Galvelo, Taladua, and Yu – is, without a doubt, a force to reckon with. That is exactly why Napa has nothing but high hopes for his third year at the helm in Intramuros. “One thing’s for sure: my target next year is to become a champion. Yun na yung mindset ko,” he shared. He then continued, “Ang mindset ko ngayon is the Final Four. Next year, our mindset is to become number 1.” The same sentiment goes for the now-graduated Nambatac. “Nakikita ko na ngayon yung Team B namin and marami dun, may experience na playing in the big leagues. Sigurado ako, nayon pa lang masasabi ko nang magiging matunog ang Letran next year,” he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Lady Blazers end campaign on a high note

College of St. Benilde head coach Macky Carino lashed out at his wards after the first set when the Lady Blazers went behind early. Veterans Ranya Musa and Rachel Austero responded to spark the Lady Blazers’ 18-25, 25-19, 25-22, 25-22 comeback win against Technological Institute of the Philippines to close their campaign in Group B of the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan on Saturday. “Sobrang relaxed (sa first set),” said Carino. “Sabi ko sa kanila, ‘na katulad niyan na parehas tayong walang panalo. Kung sino na lang gustong manalo sa laban na ito yun ang mananalo. Sa ginagawa nyo sa first set, ayaw nyong manalo. Kaya tingnan nyo ang resulta. Pero kung babaguhiun nyo yan sa second set hanggang matapos ang game, madodomina nyo lahat o angat na angat ang game nyo, mananalo tayo,’” The Taft-based squad regrouped just in time to clinch their only win in five games, while sending the Lady Engineers to a 0-5 finish. Graduating player Musa scored 19 points with all but one coming off attacks while converted open spiker Austero finished with 17 for the Lady Blazers. Felicia Cui added 10 markers with 15 digs for CSB, which gave TIP 47 points off its errors. Alyssa Layug had 12 points while Ashley Jinon and Jade Gentapa combined for 17 markers for the Lady Engineers.     ---   Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

Lady Chiefs respond well to Javier's 5th set instruction

Arellano University head coach Obet Javier gave his team a short and simple instruction heading into the make or break fifth set against University of the Philippines. Give everything you got, he said. His wards responded with a dramatic win that catapulted the Lady Chiefs into the semifinals Saturday in Group B of the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Huffing and puffing after an extended fourth set, the reigning NCAA titlists pushed themselves to the limit to topple one of UAAP’s top contenders. “Sinabi ko lang sa mga players ko na huwag ng magtipid at ibigay na ang dapat na ibigay,” said Javier, who was just coming off an operation to remove his gallstones two weeks ago. The Lady Chiefs came out firing on all cylinders and buried the Lady Maroons early to escape with a 22-25, 25-10, 25-19, 32-34, 15-3, win and a ticket to the best-of-three Final Four together with Adamson University. Jovielyn Prado and Regine Arocha exploded with 20-plus scoring outbursts to lead two more Arellano players in double figures while setter Rhea Ramirez had a superb 55-excellent set outing to welcome Javier back with an all-important victory. Javier was glad to see his team showing the kind of fighting spirit that brought them to the NCAA throne. “Kanina sa huddle namin sa dugout, sinabi ko na i-treat nila ang game na ito as a championship at pinaka-last na game na ng buhay nila. Kaya talagang ibigay na ang dapat ibigay. Wala ng relax-relax,” he said. “Sabi ko  naman na kung matatalo ayos lang kasi ang pag-join sa PVL puro gain ito sa aming lahat kasi bago ang team ko ngayon,” he added. “Malaking factor ang pag-join namin dito lalo na’t binigyan kami ng napakagandang laban ng UP, gagamitin namin yun para mas lalong umangat ang level ng performance ng team ko.” The Lady Chiefs will await their semis opponent in Group A. National University, Ateneo de Manila and Far Eastern University are still in contention for a semis slot in their bracket. Arellano U is the only NCAA team to advance in the semifinals, and Javier admitted that he loves that challenge of carrying their collegiate league’s pride.  “Paghahandaan namin (ang semis). Lalo ngayon na siguradong dalawang UAAP teams ang makakapasok sa kabila tapos dalawa kami ng Adamson,” he said. “Kung sino ang matatapat sa amin panibagong challenge na naman ito. Kami naman kapag may dumating na hamon, laban lang ng laban.”   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»
