Mapua gets through EAC to get to greater heights in NCAA 95

Mapua University started slow, but finished fine, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre, to score a 79-76 triumph over Emilio Aguinaldo College and go streaking anew in the NCAA 95 Men’s Basketball Tournament. The Cardinals caught fire in the last eight minutes with Noah Lugo, Laurenz Victoria, and Cyril Gonzales conniving for a 15-2 run that erased a two-point deficit, 60-62, and erected a 75-64 advantage with 4:19 remaining. "Credit sa EAC kasi ready talaga sila. Mas aggressive sila nung start so nung second half, sinabi ko sa kanilang kailangang matapatan namin yung energy nila," head coach Randy Alcantara said. Still, the Generals kept coming and Marwin Taywan’s short stab pulled them within 76-78 with 46.8 ticks to go on the clock only to see Mapua dig deep and stand strong until the final buzzer. In that last possession, they held on for the win after forcing Taywan and JP Maguliano into two forced shots each. Warren Bonifacio finally got the rebound for the Cardinals after the last miss, his 10th of the game to go along with 13 points, and passed the ball to Lugo. Not long after, the veteran guard was sent to the line where he made the first and missed the second. The rebound, though, went to Justin Serrano who sealed the deal in the red and gold's back-to-back wins - which they got even without super rookie Paolo Hernandez who was out due to a knee injury and even after losing Victoria to an apparent foot injury late. Victoria still wound up with 11 points on top of six rebounds and three assists while Lugo had 16 markers, four boards, and two dimes of his own to make sure their side built on its momentum from its big-time double-overtime victory versus Colegio de San Juan de Letran a week ago. More than the latest win run, Mapua has now won five of its last six to ascend to the sixth spot in the standings at 5-6. "One game at a time pa rin kasi kung titingnan mo, kaya naman. Kailangan lang maging consistent kami sa ginagawa namin," coach Randy said. Maguliano topped the scoring column for EAC with 15 points while Taywan also added 13 markers, six rebounds, two assists, and two steals. Unable to complete the comeback, however, they lost for the 10th time in a row and 11th overall in 12 games. BOX SCORES MAPUA 79 - Lugo 16, Bonifacio 13, Victoria 11, Gonzales 9, Gamboa 7, Bunag 6, Serrano 5, Nieles 4, Nocum 4, Salenga 2, Aguirre 2, Garcia 0. EAC 76 - Maguliano 15, Taywan 13, De Guzman 12, Mendoza 10, Dayrit 8, Cadua 7, Gurtiza 4, Luciano 3, Estacio 2, Martin 2, Gonzales 0.

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. BOX SCORES LPU 74 - Marcelino JC 23, Nzeusseu 17, Santos 7, Caduyac 6, Marcelino JV 6, Tansingco 6, Yong 4, Pretta 3, David 2, Navarro 0, Ibanez 0, Valdez 0, Guinto 0 CSB 71 - Leutcheu 15, Nayve 11, Haruna 9, Gutang 6, Dixon 6, Flores 6, Pasturan 5, Naboa 5, Sangco 4, Lepalam 2, Belgica 2, Young 0, Carlos 0 QUARTER SCORES: 22-23, 43-36, 68-51, 74-71 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Impact rookies allow Mapua to gun down EAC, go streaking in NCAA 95

All of a sudden, Mapua University has gone streaking in the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament, adding Emilio Aguinaldo College to its just recently created list of victims via a 76-66 victory, Tuesday at Filoil Flying V Centre. The Cardinals actually found themselves in a close contest after two quarters and were only up by one, 35-34, early in the third. It was at that point, though, that they unleashed a terrifying 21-0 tear that blew the game wide open in their favor courtesy of a 56-34 lead late in the quarter. The Generals would not be able to threaten the rest of the way. With the double-digit decision, Mapua has now won its last two games. This, after starting the season with five losses in a row. "Hopefully, makatulong itong dalawang sunod na panalo," first lieutenant Yong Garcia said post-game. "Galing kami sa 0-5, down ang mga bata, pero ang focus lang namin is one game at a time." Just like in their breakthrough win just last Saturday, Laurenz Victoria was key in this one, dropping all but three of his 10 points in their massive surge in the third quarter. He was then flanked by prized rookies Cyril Gonzales and Paolo Hernandez with the former finishing with 13 points and three rebounds and the latter ending with 11 markers, three boards, two assists, and two steals. There's bad news for the Cardinals, however, as, with the decision no longer in question, Jasper Salenga incurred a disqualifying foul. That means he will have to serve a one-game suspension in their next outing opposite Jose Rizal University on Friday. "Disappointed si coach Randy sa last part ng game," coach Yong said, also explaining that head coach Randy Alcantara decided to go directly into the locker room to talk to his wards rather than go to the customary post-win interview. " Ginusto niyang bigyan ng chance yung iba para mabigyan ng confidence, pero 'di naging maganda ang resulta." For EAC, JC Luciano topped the scoring column with 12 points to go along with seven rebounds. At the wrong end of that terrifying tear in the third quarter, however, they absorbed their sixth loss in seven games. BOX SCORES MAPUA 76 - Gonzales 13, Hernandez 11, Victoria 10, Bonifacio 8, Serrano 8, Lugo 7, Garcia 5, Gamboa 4, Salenga 4, Bunag 2, Jabel 2, Nieles 2, Aguirre 0, Dela Cruz 0, Nocum 0.

Valenzuela the hero as Greenies hand Red Cubs their first loss in NCAA 95

STANDINGS CSB-LSGH 4-1 San Beda 4-1 Arellano 4-1 JRU 4-3 LPU 3-2 Perpetual 3-3 San Sebastian 2-3 Letran 2-4 Mapua 1-4 EAC 1-5 Lennox Valenzuela's floater over the outstretched arms of two defenders proved to be the difference for College of St. Benilde-La Salle Green Hills in their thrilling 99-98 overtime triumph over San Beda High School in the NCAA 95 Juniors Basketball Tournament, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre. The Jr. Blazers were chasing down a one-point deficit with 6.6 ticks to go on the clock of the extra period and, with top gun RC Calimag covered, Valenzuela took matters into his own hands - driving from behind the arc to the free throw line before rising for a one-hander that went over the heads of Red Cubs Hans Nicdao and Charles Delfino. Not long after, the ball bounced around the ring and then fell into the net, capping off the defensive-minded guard's 23-point, five-rebound, three-steal, two-assist performance. San Beda still had 2.2 seconds to make something happen, but Delfino's halfcourt heave was too strong. That game-winner scored for CSB-LSGH its third win in a row and fourth overall in five games in the season. Along with that, that game-winner also eventually ended as the first blemish on the once spotless slate of the Red Cubs Valenzuela would not have had the chance for that floater, though, if not for the efforts of Calimag who dropped 15 of his 30 points in the final frame which witnessed the Jr. Blazers' furious fightback. Rookies Jiam Quiambao and Jan Manansala were also key as the former finished with 12 points and four rebounds while the latter ended with 10 markers, nine boards, and three blocks. The green and white have now rolled to the front of the pack - with back-to-back wins against defending champion Mapua High School and then erstwhile league-leader San Beda The Red Cubs retained a share of first, also with a 4-1 standing, even after main man Rhayyan Amsali was limited to just six points in 2-of-10 shooting to go along with six assists and four rebounds as well as seven turnovers. In his stead, Yukien Andrada showed the way with a 21-marker, 10-board double-double. Meanwhile, University of Perpetual Help arrested its three-game slump via a 67-62 victory versus San Sebastian College-Recoletos.

MPBL: Late Ayonayon barrage rescues San Juan in OT win over Bataan

San Juan Go For Gold proved they have the heart of a champion by coming from behind late to beat the Bataan Risers, 87-79, in overtime in Saturday's Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Lakan Season play date. The crowd at the Ibalong Centrum for Recreation in Legazpi City was treated to a clutch performance by San Juan's Mike Ayonayon, who caught fire late, sealing the victory and keeping their slate spotless at 7-0. "Sobrang pangit ang laro ko noong first half. So pinaninindigan ko lang mga tira ko, bahala na. Eh sakto, na-shoot," said the former PCU Dolphin, who finished with 18 points, 15 in the second half and OT. San Juan took a 34-32 halftime lead thanks in large part to John Wilson's 14 first-half points. The former NCAA MVP nailed half of his eight three-point attempts. Wilson led all scorers with 22 points. Bataan started the third with an 8-0 run to seize the initiative and finished the period 53-46 up with the help of CJ Isit and Jai Reyes. A triple by Reyes and then a bucket by Mar Villahermosa put the Risers up 72-61 with just over two minutes left and San Juan's immaculate record looked in jeopardy. However, Ayonayon answered the call with two triples and nine points in the end of regulation, none bigger than a baseline jumper to knot the game at 72-72 with 3.5 ticks and send the game into an extension. San Juan spotted Bataan a 75-72 lead then bossed overtime with big baskets from Ayonayon and Jhonard Clarito. Meanwhile the Risers wilted in the face of the champs' stifling defense, committing several costly turnovers. Bataan slumps to 3-4. The Risers missed the services of offensive machine Alvin Pasaol, who was unavailable for the game. In the featured game the Iloilo United Royals spoiled the home debut of the Bicol Volcanoes LCC Malls by hanging on for a 77-74 victory. Richard Escoto starred for the Ilonggos, getting best player of the game honors with 21 points. Bicol started jittery and hesitant in front of their home fans, shooting just two  of 20 from the field in the first quarter to fall behind 19-11 after ten minutes. There was more bad news early in the second period when Volcanoes talisman Ronjay Buenafe was called for a third foul while going for a jumper. The early foul trouble meant Buenafe's minutes were curtailed and he never got in sync. The Camarines Sur native missed all nine of his attempts from the field and was a non-factor, his 10 points all coming from the stripe. With 1:28 to go in the half and up 37-29, Royals guard JR Parker was observed striking Volcano Leo Blanca in the face. Parker was called for a disqualifying foul and his Bicol adventure came to a premature end. The visitors took a 44-33 lead into the locker room, with Cedric De Joya pumping in 11 of his 12 points. Key baskets from Jonathan Aldave and Alwyn Alday cut the lead to six, 60-54 in the end of the third. LCC Malls continued to chip away at the lead in the payoff period, and an Aldave triple with 48 seconds left brought them within one, 75-74. With 15 seconds left and up 76-74 Richard Escoto had two charities to ice the game. He flubbed both but with no timeouts to call Bicol ran a poor play, with Raffy Gusi missing a wild attempt then getting called for a kick ball. A Samboy de Leon free throw iced the contest for the Royals, sending the big Bicolano crowd home disappointed. Iloilo wins despite shooting 37 percent from the field, two percentage points better than their foes. Bicol's topscorer was Aldave with 18. Iloilo improves to 4-3 while Bicol's four-game win streak is history and their slate is now 5-3......»»

Proud Parent Problems: For Currys, a fraught conference final

By Shaun Powell, NBA.com OAKLAND, Calif. — They are lock-step and lock-arm and also lock-jersey as they enter Oracle Arena in what is their crowning achievement as a basketball mom and dad. Dell and Sonya Curry are in the running for First Couple of the NBA, and in the Western Conference finals, this honor comes with an equal amount of pride and anxiety. “There’s so much emotion involved because you want both to do well, and here they are, on opposite benches,” says the mom. The father agreed, adding: “It’s hard for both of us.” [Watch the Playoffs on NBA League Pass for 30% less with this limited time offer! Select Annual package and use code SAVE30 at checkout to redeem] Their sons are, of course, Stephen and Seth Curry, and their dilemma is being played out in front of millions on TV, who see Dell and Sonya sitting in the stands wearing custom-made split jerseys honoring both players. For Game 1, Dell had Steph’s No. 30 Warriors jersey on the front and Seth’s No. 31 Blazers on the back, and vice versa for Sonya. They’ll switch up as the series goes along because the parents never want to show favoritism for any of their children. “Somebody’s going to lose and we’re going to the Finals with one of them and it will be bittersweet,” Dell Curry said. “But whomever doesn’t go to the Finals for his team will be there for his brother.” Aside from this being a sweet story involving a close-knit and stable family, what’s amazing about this is that it's happening at all. Yes, the NBA has had a fair share of siblings before -- do you know how many Plumlees are cashing basketball checks? -- but never in the same conference finals. And what’s more, neither of the Curry boys dropped strong hints, even as far as high school, that they’d be on anybody’s NBA bench. But religion and faith run through all the Currys and the parents, who’ve been married 31 years, must’ve struck the proper chord because they’ve been blessed with a playoff series neither will soon forget, no matter how it turns out. By now, their made-for-reality TV story is a familiar one. Dell was a smooth-shooting guard at Virginia Tech where he met Sonya, who played for the women’s volleyball team. They soon became a couple and delivered Steph while Dell played for the Cavaliers, who drafted him. Seth came a few years later in Charlotte, where Dell by then was one of the game’s best sixth men, dropping shots from distance for the Hornets. Their basketball education started at home and specifically the driveway basketball court where the boys wore Hornets jerseys and pretended to be in the NBA. “They battled each other,” Dell Curry said. “You know, trying to get the game-winning point and arguing whether you got fouled or not. You’re standing there watching them settle it and it never got settled. My wife and I took turns being the referee deciding who won the game.” Understandably, it never got heated, as anger or jealousy doesn’t seem to be in the Curry family DNA. “Steph did a good job with that,” said Dell. “Being the oldest boy, he could’ve beaten up on [Seth] a lot.” The boys became familiar faces around the Hornets’ practice facility and games. They attended small private high schools instead of basketball academies because of academics; their parents didn’t specifically groom them for the NBA. Even if the father’s shooting genetics and mother’s competitive instincts were soon apparent with both boys, they were size challenged. They played like solid basketball players but looked like future accountants. That all changed for Steph not long after he went to Davidson College and for Seth after he transferred from Liberty University to Duke. Steph was an NCAA tournament sensation, and later, Seth became a solid starter who replaced an injured Kyrie Irving at one of the country’s most prestigious programs. And thus began the crazy travel schedule for their parents, each splitting the duties between their sons as best they could; it hasn’t calmed down since. Steph has had the gold-plated path, winning a pair of Kia MVPs and three championships, changing the game from a shooting standpoint and punching an automatic ticket to the Hall of Fame someday. Seth’s career has been nomadic. He wasn’t drafted because teams wondered about his ball-handling skills. The Warriors initially tossed him a lifeline, but Seth didn’t survive training camp and was sent to their G-League team. He’s with his sixth team in five years and seemingly turned the corner last season with the Mavericks, where he started 42 games before injuries intervened. Steph is vested in his younger brother’s career and quietly simmers about how Seth, who’s now 28, lacks a long-term deal and security with one team. Although the younger Curry finished third in three-point shooting percentage this season -- one spot ahead of Stephen -- Seth becomes a free agent this summer. Yet the good news is he should have interest after a breakout season for the Blazers. “They want each other to do well,” said Dell. “They cheer for each other. They watch each other’s games all the time. Steph’s a quiet guy but he roots for his brother and vice-versa.” For the last several years, Seth has been in the stands watching his brother during the postseason, sitting with his parents, marveling at Steph’s talent and fortunes like anyone else. Until now. And here they are, trying to deny each other a championship. There are times when the Curry boys will guard each other and that always puts their parents in a tough spot. When it happened in Game 1, Dell and Sonya just watched, frozen in place. No clapping, no cheering, no nothing. “Coming in here, we didn’t know what to expect or how to react,” Dell said. “This hasn’t happened before. Usually we can go all-in on one team. We don’t know how to cheer or how to respond when one team goes on a run. We can’t totally go on one side.” Sonya said: “It’s hard on my nerves.” These are proud parent problems. There is a solution to the relentless travel, the back-and-forth between two teams and this emotional wringer and the constant wondering about games and victories and losses: Maybe one day, even next season, the boys will be … teammates? Dell Curry’s face suddenly brightens and the stress disappears. “Now that would be great,” he said “Being brothers and teammates, and in this situation where they both win? Let’s see what happens. Both have a lot of years left in the league. Seth’s a free agent. You never know.” Until then, if that ever happens, the parents will keep their travel agent on speed-dial and keep a tailor on stand-by in case they need another set of jerseys stitched together. “It’s been hectic,” Dell Curry said. “But don’t get me wrong, we’re not taking this for granted. We’re just taking it all in. We’re not complaining at all. We know how special this is.” Shaun Powell has covered the NBA for more than 25 years.
