PBA: Aces finally on the board after destroying Magnolia in Game 3

ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal --- Alaska is finally on the board. The Aces scored their first win of the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup in convincing fashion, dominating the Magnolia Hotshots, 100-71, in Game 3 Sunday at the Ynares Center here. With import Mike Harris at the lead, Alaska reduced the final 12 minutes into mere garbage time and the Aces cut their series deficit in half, 1-2. After a slow first quarter, the Aces got it going in the second, pouring 34 points to take a commanding lead they would never surrender. Behind the shooting of its guard core led by Simon Enciso, Alaska took a 50-36 lead at the break and never looked back. Harris then went to work in the second half, finally having his first great game of these Finals and the Aces held off any possible Magnolia uprising. Harris scored 18 straight points for the Aces in the third period as Alaska took a 73-49 lead over the Hotshots. Alaska led by 33 after three quarters. "I thought we had a great defensice effort and we made some shots," head coach Alex Compton said. "Overall, the story of the game in the first three quarters was we made a bunch of shots, we didn't turn it over, and we defended at the same time," he added Harris was a beast for the Aces, leading the way with 36 points and 18 rebounds. He scored 22 total in the third period as Alaska landed its knockout blow. Vic Manuel added 14 points as the top local for Alaska while Enciso and Carl Bryan Cruz finished with 12 and 10 points respectively. For the Hotshots, everyone struggled as they only shot 33 percent collectively from the field. Romeo Travis was the high man with 18 points while Mark Barroca was good for 13. No other Magnolia player scored in double figures. Game 4 is set for Wednesday at the Big Dome.   The scores: ALASKA 100 - Harris 36, Manuel 14, Enciso 12, Cruz 10, Banchero 6, J. Pascual 4, Teng 4, Galliguez 4, Casio 4, Andrada 2, Baclao 2, Racal 2, Exciminiano 0, Magat 0, Potts 0.

PBA: Hotshots take commanding 2-0 lead in Manila Clasico

Two-time champion Brgy. Ginebra is officially down for the count. No. 4 Magnolia landed another haymaker Monday, taking a commanding 2-0 lead in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup semifinals following a 101-97 win over the Gin Kings in Game 2 at the Big Dome. Surviving a late flurry from the Gin Kings, the Hotshots are now one win away from the Finals and ending Ginebra's two-year reign in the Governors' Cup. Similar to Game 1, the Hotshots were in control for most of the game, frustrating the Gin Kings and making them play their game. Magnolia took multiple double-digit leads and had an answer for Ginebra anytime the champs tried to mount a rally. The Gin Kings only really had it going in the fourth after head coach Tim Cone was ejected for a pair of technical fouls. Ginebra cut the deficit down to just three points with 24 seconds to go but LA Tenorio and Justin Brownlee each missed game-tying triples. Romeo Travis then scored one free throw on the other end to seal the final tally.   The Scores: Magnolia 101 - Travis 25, Sangalang 17, Lee 14, Dela Rosa 11, Barroca 9, Jalalon 8, Reavis 6, Melton 5, Simon 5, Herndon 1. Ginebra 97 - Brownlee 31, Tenorio 15, Aguilar 15, Slaughter 14, Thompson 7, Mercado 7, Mariano 4, Chan 2, Caguioa 2, Ferrer 0. Quarters: 21-18, 47-46, 75-68, 101-97.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Where is new BuCor chief Nicanor Faeldon?

Is the new head of the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) missing in action? According to Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra, recently installed BuCor chief Nicanor Faeldon "has not showed up or said anything." "I have no idea why.

NCAA: Letran stands ground at third, stomps down on JRU

Bong Quinto and JP Calvo both had bounce back games even as Koy Galvelo continued stepping up for Colegio de San Juan de Letran in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament. Quinto stuffed the stat sheet anew, Calvo swished the nets, and Galvelo and Yu scored at will in the Knights’ 89-79 romp through already-eliminated Jose Rizal University on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. The team captain flirted with another triple-double with 14 points, 12 rebounds, and four assists while his running mate contributed 13 markers, six dimes, and five boards to lead Letran to a 10-4 standing. “Good thing, naga-guide (yung bench) ng mga leaders at yung mga leaders, willing mag-sacrifice,” head coach Jeff Napa said post-game. Galvelo only continued his hot shooting and had 16 points build on four triples in this one. From a close contest after the first period, the Knights rampaged to a 35-point second quartet to turn the game into a blowout. They would not be threatened the rest of the way. With the win, they kept their distance from fourth-running 9-5 University of Perpetual Help and now fifth-running 8-6 College of St. Benilde. The third-seed is far from a lock for Letran, however, especially with showdowns with top team Lyceum of the Philippines University and dangerous San Sebastian College-Recoletos up next. “Next week, mabigat na yung laban na papasukin namin. Hindi kami pwedeng mag-relax so mabuti naman, nag-step up yung shock troopers,” coach Jeff said. For the Heavy Bombers, Jed Mendoza showed the way as always with 25 points, five assists, four rebounds, and two steals. Overpowered by their dominant opponents, though, they dropped to 2-13 in the standings.

PBA: Hotshots end NLEX s perfect start

NLEX's perfect start is no more. Magnolia demolished the Road Warriors in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup, taking a convincing 102-72 win Wednesday at the Big Dome. An undermanned NLEX crew entered the game with a 2-0 mark despite missing several key pieces including its head coach and the Hotshots fully took advantage of that fact. Magnolia dominated all game, opening up a 31-12 lead in the first quarter and never let go.  "We prepared hard for NLEX's offense," head coach Chito Victolero said. "In their last two games, they averaged 113 points. We want to limit them under 90 and I'm proud of my players, they did a good job on defense," he added. Former Best Import Romeo Travis played his first PBA game in three years and scored 21 points and had 13 rebounds for the Hotshots. Mark Barroca was the top local for the Hotshots with 13 markers. For the Road Warriors, Olu Ashaolu finished with 21 points. The burly import will have to conced his roster spot to Aaron Fuller for now as he deals with a knee injury. Despite the loss, NLEX keeps first place for the moment with a 2-1 record.   The Scores: Magnolia 102 - Travis 21, Barroca 13, Simon 12, Gamalinda 10, dela Rosa 10 Reavis 8, Melton 7, Jalalon 6, Sangalang 5, Mendoza 4, Ramos 4, Herndon 2, Pascual 0, Brondial 0, Abundo 0.

PBA: Magnolia beats SMB but Hotshots still stuck with 7th seed

At least the Hotshots are on a winning streak heading into the playoffs. Magnolia beat defending champion San Miguel Saturday at the Big Dome, 101-97, but the Hotshots are still stuck with the no. 7 seed in the 2018 PBA Commissioner' Cup. In order to avoid a playoff disadvantage, Magnolia needed to win by at least 14 points. They were 10 points short. Thus, Magnolia (6-5) will have Alaska (8-3) for the quarterfinals starting Monday with the Aces holding a twice-to-beat advantage. The Beermen (6-5) are relegated to the no. 6 seed and will face no. 3 TNT (8-3) in a best-of-3 quarterfinals.  SMB-TNT of course, is a rematch from the 2017 Finals. "Very happy pa rin ako because it affords us momentum going to the playoffs," head coach Chito Victolero said. "Pag nanalo ka naman laging masaya eh. Di mo naman pwedeng sabihin na nanalo kami, di pa kami masaya," he added. Magnolia recovered from an early 11-point deficit to frustrate the champs. The Hotshots took an eight-point lead in the middle of the fourth, which was enough of a cushion to hold on for the win in the end. Wayne Chism led the way with 21 points as he moves to 2-0 in his short Magnolia stint so far. Paul Lee and Ian Sangalang added 14 points each for the Hotshots. San Miguel got 31 points from Renaldo Balkman but it was not enough.   The Scores: Magnolia (101): Chism 21, Lee 14, Sangalang 14, Barroca 11, Herndon 10, Jalalon 9, Melton 8, Brondial 5, Dela Rosa 4, Simon 3, Gamalinda 2, Reavis 0, Ramos 0 San Miguel (97): Balkman 31, Fajardo 18, Santos 13, Lassiter 12, Ross 9, Cabagnot 9, Nabong 5, Rosser 0, Heruela 0 Quarter scores: 29-27, 45-44, 78-76, 101-97   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Hotshots shut down TNT to break 3-game slide

Magnolia was absolutely in the zone in the second half to crush TNT. The Hotshots were on fire on both ends Wednesday, beating the KaTropa, 111-89, in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup at the MOA Arena. Magnolia exploded for 36 points in the third period to turn the game around and then they just shut down TNT in the fourth, 32-16, to break the game wide open. The win finally got the Hotshots back on the winning track, breaking out of a three-game slump to improve to 4-4 in the standings. TNT dropped to 6-2, giving up its hold of the top-2 spot. "For the last two weeks we had different imports so we have a problem with chemistry," head coach Chito Victolero said. "But I told my players to find ways how to win games and I'm very proud and very happy that they responded to my challenge," he added. Magnolia appeared to be in trouble early as TNT opened up a 12-point lead late in the second quarter, 48-36. The Hotshots managed to close the gap before the first half ended, 43-48, setting up their huge rally in the next two quarters. A 12-0 run for Magnolia in the fourth to take a 99-76 lead pretty much ended things. Paul Lee led the way for the Hotshots with 25 points, 17 in the blistering third period as Magnolia started to take control of the game. Import Justin Jackson played his first game for the Hotshots and added 18 points and 19 rebounds. He also had seven assists. Terrence Romeo paced the KaTropa with 17 points and seven assists.   The Scores:   MAGNOLIA 111 — Lee 25, Jackson 18, Brondial 16, Jalalon 13, Barroca 9, Ramos 9, Melton 7, Dela Rosa 5, Simon 3, Herndon 2, Pascual 2, Reavis 2.

PBA: Macklin makes game-winning free throws in final game for Magnolia

What a way for Vernon Macklin to make his way out of the PBA. Macklin gifted Magnolia one last win in the 2018 Commissioner's Cup, draining the crucial free throws that allowed the Hotshots to take a dramatic 81-79 victory over Meralco Friday at the Big Dome. Tied at 79, Paul Lee found Macklin on the break for a possible game-winner. Macklin almost immediately drew a foul after taking the pass and he ended up making two free throws for the lead with 3.1 seconds to go. In the game's final play on the other end, Chris Newsome failed to complete a perfectly-executed alley-oop and Magnolia won its third straight game of the conference for a 3-1 record. "I'm very proud of V-Mack," head coach Chito Victolero said. "Binigay niya par in lahat. I'm very happy. May contracy na siya sa China pero go-hard pa rin," he added. The Bolts had several opportunities to close the game out but several missed free throws from Arinze Onuaku and a questionable long two from Newsome ended up dooming Meralco. Magnolia certainly took advantage of that as a Mark Barroca free throw made it 77-79 for the Bolts. Paul Lee then eventually tied the game from the line and after Newsome's long miss, Macklin finally regained the lead for the Hotshots. Macklin led the way with 21 points and 15 rebounds for Magnolia while Lee added 20 of his own. Barroca finished with 18 points. The Bolts got 23 points from Onuaku but the hulking import missed 16 of his 21 attempts from the line. Meralco dropped to 3-2 with the loss.   The Scores: MAGNOLIA 81 – Macklin 21, Lee 20, Barroca 18, Reavis 6, Jalalon 6, Ramos 3, Herndon 3, Dela Rosa 2, Brondial 2, Pascual 0, Sangalang 0, Simon 0, Abundo 0.

Filoil Pre-season Cup: Ateneo holds off San Beda in battle of collegiate champs

UAAP champion Ateneo Blue Eagles survived a late run by NCAA titleholders San Beda Red Lions, 69-68 to remain unscathed in the 12th Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.  The Blue Eagles were up five points with 15.8 ticks remaining, 69-64, before AC Soberano launched and swished a corner triple which cut the lead to two, 67-69. Ateneo then turned the ball over, as San Beda fed the rock in the hands of their shooter Soberano, drove to the basket and got fouled inside with 10.2 left. However, Soberano missed the game-tying free throw, but the boys fro  Mendiola were able to get the ball back. Red Lion James Canlas got trapped in the corner, but passed it to the open Jayvee Mocon for the one-handed push shot, but missed it.  NCAA Season 93 Finals MVP Donald Tankoua got the rebound, but was not able to hit inside as Ateneo earns their second win in as many tries. San Beda meanwhile fell to an even 1-1 slate.  Ateneo head coach Tab Baldwin clearly was not satisfied with the UAAP champion's effort, as they were sloppy throughout the contest, turning the ball over 20 times. "Well, it's only two games in but I'm kind of disappointed. Again, we are not worried about wins but our composure was poor. I think we reacted too slowly. San Beda was prepared for us and I understand that because their season is about to begin," the former Gilas Pilipinas head coach said after the game. Baldwin also ripped through his team's lackadaisical approach in the first quarter, ending up tied with their opponents at 11-apiece at the conclusion of the first ten minutes. "We played selfish in the first quarter. I think we were affected by the TV cameras. Cameras are good but we didn't do well. I'm very disappointed right now." Isaac Go was the highest scorer for Ateneo with 14 points, while new import Angelo Kouame tallied 12 points and 12 rebounds. Thirdy Ravena meanwhile recorded nine markers and 10 caroms.  Mocon led San Beda's offense with 17 points, and six rebounds, while Tankoua added 13 markers and 13 boards.  In the first game of the day, the LPU Pirates notched their first win in Group B, as they thrashed the JRU Heavy Bombers, 90-69. Four Pirates finished in double-figures, with Casper Pericas leading the way with 16 markers. Yancy Remulla tallied 15. Jarvy Ramos paced the Heavy Bombers with 12 points. In the second game, Arellano, also of Group B, got their first win at the expense of the San Sebastian Stags, 68-61.  Michael Canete scored 12 points in 31 minutes of action, while Levi Dela Cruz added 9 markers.
