The Lady Chiefs took advantage of the Lady Pirates’ 26 errors to exit The Arena in San Juan totting a 7-1 win-loss record behind the unbeaten San Sebastian College (7-0). Jovielyn Prado led Season 90 champion Arellano’s balanced scoring with 12 points anchored on 11 kills while adding 11 digs and nine excellent receptions on the defensive end. Team captain Rialen Sante chipped in nine markers while Andrea Marzan got eight points for the Lady Chiefs, who are in their fifth straight semis stint.

PVL: CSB, Ateneo out to secure last semis seats

College of St. Benilde and Ateneo de Manila University try to clinch the last two remaining Final Four seats on Sunday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Lady Blazers battle winless TIP in Group B at 10:00 a.m. while the Lady Eagles take on also-ran University of Perpetual Help at 12:00 noon in their Group A encounter. All games are available on iWant and via livestream. Adamson University and University of Sto. Tomas are through to the semifinals after completing a five-game sweep of Group A and Group B, respectively. CSB sports a 3-1 win-loss record behind the Tigresses and is coming of a straight sets demolition of NCAA champion Arellano University last week. The Lady Blazers are tipped to be at the advantage in terms of firepower against the Lady Engineers, who are listless in four games, behind a solid crew of Klarisa Abriam, Gayle Pascual, Michelle Gamit and Mycah Go. Meanwhile, the Lady Eagles are raring to rebound from a stinging four-set loss to Adamson last week that snapped their three-game winning streak. Ateneo is hard-pressed to win over the upset-seeking Lady Altas to avoid the complication of playing San Beda University (3-2) in a playoff for the last semis seat. Expected to make her return is Faith Nisperos, who skipped the Lady Eagles' last game because of a viral infection. Perpetual is on a three-game slide and holds a 1-3 card. Meanwhile, Far Eastern University (2-2) and Lyceum of the Philippines University (1-3) clash at 8:00 a.m. in the other Group B action. The Lady Tams can force a playoff for the last semis spot if FEU defeats the Lady Pirates and CSB loses to TIP.     ---      Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Baste charges into NCAA 95 Round 2 on four-game win run

San Sebastian College-Recoletos has forced its way into a four-team logjam at the second spot in the NCAA 95 Men’s Basketball Tournament after fending off Arellano University, 85-79, Friday at Cuneta Astrodome. After a roller-coaster ride early on at 2-3, the Golden Stags have rung off four wins in a row to stand on even ground with College of St. Benilde, Colegio de San Juan de Letran, and Lyceum of the Philippines University for the position right behind league-leader San Beda University. "The key now is everybody is playing together. Everybody contributes knowing their roles," head coach Egay Macaraya said post-game. This latest win was courtesy of JM Calma who willed in the inside basket with 33 ticks to go that quelled the Chiefs’ late rally. It didn’t hurt Baste either that lady luck looked like she was smiling on them as just when Arellano was making its run and was only down by one inside the last two minutes, both short stabs from Kent Salado and Justin Arana rolled out. Then after Calma’s inside basket, Arana only made 1-of-2 from the line and even though the latter got his own miss, their possession still ended with Gelo Sablan muffing on a corner jumper. RK Ilagan and Alex Desoyo then sealed the deal for San Sebastian by making good on all four of their free throws. In the end, Calma posted a 17-point, 10-rebound double-double before fouling out late while Allyn Bulanadi topped the scoring column with 22 markers on top of seven boards and two steals. Ilagan then wound up with 12 points and four assists while fan favorite Amman Cosari also provided a boost off the bench with five markers and five rebounds. "May bonus pa ako ngayon na Ammar Cosari. He was the difference kay Arana," coach Egay said of his backup big man who held his own against the most recent Player of the Week of the Chooks-to-Go Collegiate Press Corps. On the other hand, Arellano was paced by Kent Salado and Arana with the former finishing with 13 points, six assists, and four rebounds and the latter ending with 13 markers, 10 boards, and three blocks. BOX SCORES SAN SEBASTIAN 85 - Bulanadi 22, Calma 17, Ilagan 12, Desoyo 8, Capobres 6, Cosari 5, Villapando 4, Tero 3, Dela Cruz 2, Sumoda 2, Isidro 2, Calahat 2, Altamirano 0.

PVL: Lady Eagles set sights on third straight win

Unbeaten Ateneo de Manila University may have the advantage in firepower against San Beda University but Lady Eagles head coach Oliver Almadro is not discounting the dangerous Lady Red Spikers. Ateneo will take on resurging San Beda on Saturday in the main game of the triple-bill action in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Collegiate Conference Group A at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. “Hindi pwedeng i-take for granted any team here in the PVL,” said Almadro, who steered Ateneo to the UAAP Season 81 throne. “They will not be invited here in the PVL in the first place if they are not capable of showing their best.” Game time is at 12:00 noon and will air live via iWant and livestream. The Lady Eagles share the lead with Adamson University after beating Letran in four set in the opener before dominating San Sebastian College 25-17, 25-17, 25-8, last week. Veteran Ponggay Gaston, who debuted with 10 points against the Lady Stags after skipping the opener, will lead the charge of Ateneo with rookie Faith Nisperos, who is averaging 17 points per game, Erika Raagas, Vannie Gandler, Jules Samonte and setter Jaja Maraguinot.   The Lady Red Spikers recovered from an opening-day defeat to Adamson U with a come-from-behind, 21-25, 21-25, 25-23, 25-8, 15-11 victory over Letran last week. League-leading scorer Cesca Racraquin, who is averaging 18.5 point per game and dropped 27 points last outing, Kimberly Manzano and Ella Viray will try to power San Beda to a huge upset. Meanwhile, NCAA champion Arellano University seeks a third straight win when the Lady Chiefs collide with Far Eastern University at 10:00 a.m. in group B. Arellano U is tied with University of Sto. Tomas at the top spot with 2-0 win-loss record. The Lady Chiefs defeated Lyceum of the Philippines University in five sets last week despite playing sans four injured players including veteran hitter Regine Arocha.   The Lady Tams recovered from a shocking opening day loss to College of St. Benilde after sweeping TIP last week. FEU and CSB are tied at 1-1 card. In the 8:00 a.m. opener, the Lady Blazers face the winless Lady Pirates.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA 95: San Sebastian stampede too much for struggling EAC

San Sebastian College-Recoletos has stretched its streak to three wins in a row in the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament after adding to the misery of Emilio Aguinaldo College, 86-65, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre. The Golden Stags started strong with nine unanswered points and proceeded to trample the Generals by as much as 18 more than a few times in the third and fourth quarter. They then wrapped up the dominant decision with the biggest lead of the game also serving as the margin of victory. In the end, Alvin Capobres was at the forefront of the attack with 20 points and seven rebounds while Allyn Bulanadi and Rommel Calahat chimed in 14 and 12 markers, respectively. Top gun RK Ilagan then had 11 points, four assists, and three rebounds all while fighting through an ankle sprain as well as cramps. Still, Baste's other guys came up big as they rang off their third win in a row and fifth overall in eight games. At the same time, they pounded on already grounded EAC which has now lost seven straight after a 1-1 start to the season.

NCAA 95: Melo Banua s big win all for longtime mentor Egay Macaraya

San Sebastian College-Recoletos' campaign hasn't gone as planned in the earlygoing of the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament. The Golden Stags had been seen as title contenders, but have instead stumbled out of the gates with a 2-3 record. Worse, standing in their path to get back on track was another title contender in Colegio de San Juan de Letran. And even worse, head coach Egay Macaraya wasn't there to guide them in their matchup opposite the Knights as he was serving a one-game suspension. Still, Baste found a way to win last Tuesday, besting their age-old rivals in an overtime classic. Of course, much credit goes to acting coach Melo Banua for that as he remained cool, calm, and collected and made sure they stood strong in the face of Letran's late rally. This, only hours after he and his Staglets suffered a setback to the Squires. According to Coach Melo, it was actually somebody who wasn't even at the venue who pushed him to move forward and turn his attention to the Srs. game between San Sebastian and Letran. "After ng (Jrs.) game namin, tumawag si coach Egay at sabi niya, 'Okay lang yan, focus ka na sa Srs. Wala tayong magagawa kasi puro bago ang players natin sa high school so move on na tayo,'" he shared. He then continued, "Talagang ni-motivate niya ako na bumawi na lang sa Srs." The young mentor and the Golden Stags did just that and in the end, dedicated their well-earned win to the head of their basketball program. As Banua put it, "Ino-offer namin ito kay Coach Egay talaga. Lalo na ako kasi parang tatay ko na siya talaga." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

NCAA 95: No doubt, Larry Muyang left it all on the floor in Letran s OT loss to Baste

Colegio de San Juan de Letran was trailing San Sebastian College-Recoletos for majority of their matchup, Tuesday at Filoil Flying V Centre. That was until Larry Muyang took matters into his own hands. Muyang came alive in the final frame, scoring 15 of his 32 points to will the Knights into forcing overtime. In the extra period, the burly big man only continued making his presence felt with four points. "Sakin kasi kanina sa game, parang iniisip ko lang na gusto ko lang mag-bounce back kaya lahat ginawa ko na," he said post-game, referring to their previous game - a loss to archrival San Beda University. In the end, however, it was all for naught as they fell, 101-102. "Kaya lang, wala e, ganun talaga. Basketball talaga kaya siguro, 'di rin kami pinalad ngayon," Muyang lamented after he also collected 18 rebounds, two blocks, and two assists. Even worse, Letran's latest loss dropped them to 0-3 up against the other playoff hopefuls in San Sebastian, San Beda, and Lyceum of the Philippines University. "Ngayon sana (yung convincing win namin) kaso minalas. Okay lang naman sa amin kasi napakita namin kung paano kami maglaro ngayon, pero kinapos lang talaga," he said. Still, last season's Rookie of the Year remains upbeat about the Knights' charge to the playoffs - even with a match-up opposite another playoff hopeful in College of St. Benilde coming up. "Kailangang-kailangan namin yun. Kung 'di namin matatalo yung CSB, parang tagilid kami," he said. He then continued, "Pero para sa akin, may tiwala pa rin kami sa isa't-isa lalo na eto na naman yung chance para makatalo ng contender." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

San Beda takes LPU’s best shot, still takes seventh straight win in NCAA 95

San Beda University continued to have all the answers for modern-day rival Lyceum of the Philippines University for a convincing 88-73 victory in the two team’s first meeting in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, Tuesday at Filoil Flying V Centre. The now-vacated places of Robert Bolick and Javee Mocon were simply filled by Evan Nelle and James Canlas as the Red Lions remained unscathed through seven games in their title defense. Well aware of all LPU had up its sleeve, San Beda was in complete command for majority of the matchup. "Unang-una, nagpapasalamat ako sa players ko for all the sacrifices they have had the past few days preparing for LPU," a more than satisfied head coach Boyet Fernandez said post-game. Of course, the Pirates kept coming and were within six, 64-70, inside the last seven minutes. In the next four minutes, however, Nelle sparked a 14-0 charge that re-increased the Red Lion edge to 84-64. The red and white would not be threatened the rest of the way as they re-asserted their mastery over the LPU crew they had downed in the Finals of the last two years. Nelle wound up with 14 points, all but five coming in the final frame, to go along with seven rebounds and four assists while "Bandana Bro" Canlas also added nine markers, four boards, and three dimes. Topping the scoring column for the defending champions was Calvin Oftana who posted a 20-point, 12-rebound double-double while Cameroonian bruiser Donald Tankoua had 19 markers and six boards of his own. Even after taking down another playoff hopeful, however, San Beda is well aware is has a long way to go. "Hopefully, we won't stop here. it's only one game and we have so many to go," coach Boyet said. On the other hand, the Pirates were sank for just the second time in eight games. Mike Nzeusseu, their powerhouse from Cameroon, paced them with 18 points and nine rebounds and he was backstopped by Jaycee Marcelino who had 13 markers, five assists, three steals, and two boards.

NCAA 95: Marcelino-led LPU puts a stop to CSB s best-ever start

Lyceum of the Philippines University still has the number of TY Tang-coached College of St. Benilde - even now in the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament. With Jaycee Marcelino captaining the wrecking crew, the Pirates powered their way right through the Blazers, 74-71, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre. After a tight first half, Marcelino just turned it on in the third, propelling his side to a 68-48 edge after scoring 10 of his 23 points in the quarter. The Taft-based team, however, would battle back to within four, 70-74, inside the last two minutes. "We have to give credit to CSB. They just kept on pursuing us," coach Topex Robinson said post-game. The LPU defense stood strong from that point, however, and allowed no more makes from the field. CSB inched closer to just down three with 3.7 ticks to go on the clock after Chris Flores was sent to the line and sent in his first free throw. Flores intentionally muffed on the second to keep the door open for his side, but it was Mike Nzeusseu who collared the rebound, finishing the job once and for all for the Pirates. In the end, Nzeusseu posted a 17-point, 16-rebound double-double to help the Intramuros-based squad to their fifth win in a row and sixth overall in seven games. "We'll always take this win. I'm happy that the boys got it," coach Topex said. This latest decision keeps LPU undefeated against the TY Tang-coached Blazers. This latest decision also just happened to put the first blemish on the once spotless slate of the green and white. Off to their best-ever start in school history, CSB suffered its first setback as top gun Justin Gutang was held in check, only with six points in 1-of-7 shooting to go along with eight rebounds and eight assists. In his stead, Cameroonian Clement Leutcheu topped the scoring column with 15 points on top of nine rebounds and two steals.

ABS-CBN brings the techno sport “HADO” to the Philippines

ABS-CBN officially launched Hado Pilipinas, a first-of-its-kind, dynamic technosport that promises to elevate the pulsating challenge of dodgeball by incorporating augmented reality (AR) into the mix.   Hado Pilipinas’ entry marks an innovation in Philippine sports from ABS-CBN’s subsidiary, ABS-CBN Themed Experiences, Inc., as the network continues to bring unique Kapamilya experiences in fun, engaging, and interactive themed attractions and activities.  “This technosport combines physical and digital play in a game that various teams, groups of friends, even families can play and enjoy,” shared ABS-CBN Themed Experiences head Cookie Bartolome.  Filipinos will enjoy this multiplayer technosport—a distinct activity that combines technology and sports for an innovative experience. Unlike e-games which follows the usual pattern of video gaming that involves mere hand-eye coordination, technosports require physical agility which makes the players exhaust physical energy and sweat.  Hado is a brand of Augmented Reality (AR) games developed in Japan. Hado Player versus Player (or Hado PvP) employs the use of a lightweight head-mounted display as the AR interface, and arm-worn devices that enable players to throw energy balls and put up their shields. Unlike most VR and MOBA games where the interactivity is between player avatars on a digital interface, players here are completely immersed in the game as they make use of actual throwing and dodging motions to play the game properly.  Up to six players can play Hado PvP per game, with three players per team. The teams have 80 seconds to battle it out inside the Hado PvP Arena, with the winning team decided by who knocks-out more opponents by the end of regulation. On the other hand, spectators watching also get the same exhilarating experience by watching the AR composite on giant monitors. These allow them to see the CGI energy balls, shields, and overlays for player stats. Meanwhile, students from the universities and colleges in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) already got a taste of the thrilling new technosport as “Hado Pilipinas” currently goes around each school to introduce the game.  The winning team at the ongoing Hado Pilipinas NCAA Collegiate Cup 2019 wins an all-expense paid trip to Tokyo, Japan to represent the Philippines in the Hado World Cup 2019 in December, and have a chance to win ¥2 million.  Interested players can experience the game at the soon-to-open Hado Pilipinas Camp, a training ground opening inside the ABS-CBN Compound in the last quarter of 2019.   The “Hado Pilipinas” journey, hosted by Vince Velasco and Denice Dinsay, airs on ABS-CBN S+A, S+A HD, LIGA, and LIGA HD every Sunday, 11:30am, starting August 25. The program can also be viewed on ABS-CBN’s streaming platform iWant.  For more details, follow @hadopilipinas on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram......»»

Mapua rides Player of the Week Victoria to breakthrough win in NCAA 95

Laurenz Victoria made sure to steal the thunder from the rivalry game between San Beda and Letran. In the NCAA's first game in 11 years at Cuneta Astrodome, a venue that's just 23 minutes away from Mapua, Victoria fired a season-high 29 points to lift the Cardinals to their breakthrough win in the Season 95 Seniors Basketball Tournament last Saturday. "Mahirap kasi talagang kada talo namin, bumababa ang morale namin," Victoria recalled about their horrid 0-5 start. This time around, the Mapua captain did not allow any meltdown to happen against the Arellano Chiefs. Up by just two with 1:09 left, the 22-year-old guard took matters into his own hands, scoring on a fadeaway jumper to give the Cardinals some breathing space. After a defensive stop, Victoria then aggressively drove through the lane, drew a foul, and then knocked down two clutch free throws that halted Arellano's hijack attempt. For his heroics that lifted Mapua to a 73-64 win over Arellano, the 6-foot guard was hailed as the Chooks-to-Go Collegiate Press Corps NCAA Player of the Week. "Kailangan kasi maging aggressive, ito yung chance namin na makuha yung unang panalo. Jumpball pa lang, pagkuha ko pa lang ng bola, inatake ko na talaga," disclosed Victoria, who also tallied eight rebounds, three assists, and a steal. "Wala na akong pakialam basta manalo kami." Victoria bested Lyceum's Mike Nzeusseu and San Beda's Evan Nelle for the weekly honor handed out by scribes covering the beat from print and online......»»

Mapua takes fight out of Arellano to finally take flight in NCAA 95

Mapua University has always given it all in the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament and, at long last, that was more than enough for a well-earned win, 73-64, at the expense of Arellano University, Saturday at Cuneta Astrodome. Laurenz Victoria turned in a career game with 29 points in efficient 8-of-13 shooting from the field and 12-of-15 shooting from the line, shooting the Cardinals to their very first win after six games in the season. "Masaya kasi, siyempre, saan pa ba ako pupunta. Naka-focus lang talaga kaming makuha yung unang panalo at tinrabaho ng lahat ng players," a beaming head coach Randy Alcantara said post-game. With the two teams going at it inside the last two minutes and their lead at a precarious two points, 66-64, it was also the veteran guard whose fadeaway jumper detonated a 7-0 blast to put the game away once and for all. Victoria had four points in that finishing kick while rookie Paolo Hernandez accounted for the other three and wound up with 14 markers and seven rebounds. Arvin Gamboa and Noah Lugo then chipped in nine and six points, respectively, as Mapua took full advantage of their aggressiveness throughout - going 26-for-37 from the charity stripe. "Sabi nga ni coach Randy, kahit natataloy tayo, 'di tayo makukuntento kaya kada practice, kada laro, talagang pinaghihirapan namin," Victoria said as they finally barged into the win column at 1-5. Now sporting the same slate are the Chiefs whose effort in this one was fronted by Archie Concepcion with 13 points.
