‘Smart’ Kai Sotto impresses coach in Gilas win

Kai Sotto made his much-awaited preseason debut and the Gilas cadets escaped University of the East, 63-61, for a rare win in the Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup Tuesday night. Sotto was the center of attention and did not disappoint with a couple of dunks and blocks to finish with five points, three rebounds and two blocks, making the most out of his 13 minutes of action. The 7-foot Sotto may not have produced eye-catching numbers, but his stats did not show how big of a role he played for the young Nationals. "Isn't it great to be a 7-footer. Aside from his frail body, I think he's a smart player. He knows what's happening. For a 17-year-old, I think he knows what's happenin...Keep on reading: ‘Smart’ Kai Sotto impresses coach in Gilas win.....»»

Kai debuts for Gilas cadets, delivers much-needed win

Nothing much was going right for the Gilas cadets in their matchup against University of the East on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. That was until Kai Sotto entered the court. Sotto was a difference-maker on both ends in the last nine minutes while Ricci Rivero and Juan Gomez de Liano came through in the endgame as the national team rallied from 11 points down for a 63-61 triumph over the Red Warriors. The UAAP Juniors Finals MVP just had five points, three rebounds, and two blocks to his name, but it was during his time on the floor when the Gilas cadets went on a 13-0 run that erased an 11-point deficit and eventually ended as a much-needed two-point win in the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup. “It’s good to be a seven-footer, no,” head coach Jong Uichico joshed with reporters post-game, referring to their towering teen. UE was up, 61-50, early in the final frame until Uichico sent Sotto and Vince Tolentino back into the game. The two did nothing but stifle the Red Warriors as Sotto protected the paint while Tolentino clamped down on Pasaol. In all, the Gilas cadets only allowed four points in the pivotal period. That, coupled with their scoring burst capped off by short stabs from Rivero and GDL, was more than enough to hike their standing to 2-5. While he was scoreless in the fourth, Pasaol still topped the scoring column for now 1-2 UE with 22 points to go along with seven rebounds. In a heavyweight bout between UAAP powerhouses, Far Eastern University topped Adamson University, 75-64. Prince Orizu showed the way for the Tamaraws with 12 points and he was backstopped by Arvin Tolentino and Barkley Ebona who scored eight points each..  FEU improved to 4-1 with the win while also dealing the first defeat in three games to the Soaring Falcons. Sean Manganti paced Adamson with 20 points. Papi Sarr also had 13 markers to his name. Meanwhile, College of St. Benilde kept its slate spotless after powering through University of Sto. Tomas, 99-87. Clement Leutcheu had 22 points and 15 rebounds while Edward Dixon contributed his own 16 markers in the Blazers’ fifth win in a row to begin the tournament. UST dropped to 1-5 with the loss. Kenenth Zamora and Zachy Huang topped the scoring column for them with 22 and 21 points, respectively.

FILOIL PRESEASON: Desiderio-less UP rallies past Gilas cadets

The University of the Philippines overcame both the absence of Paul Desiderio and a 16-point deficit to score its first winning streak in the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. Behind Juan Gomez de Liano and Jun Manzo, the Fighting Maroons battled back from 16 points down in the third quarter before charging through in the final frame for a 78-72 comeback win over Gilas cadets on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Juan GDL was brilliant all game long with 22 points, eight rebounds, and four assists while Manzo fronted the fight in the endgame and had a total of 22 markers of his own. Bright Akhuetie also posted a 16-point, 13-rebound double-double while both Javi GDL and Jerson Prado had key contributions as State U won for the second straight game following a 0-3 start. “This is a big win for us, getting one against the best collegiate players,” a beaming head coach Bo Perasol said post-game. Their efforts were more than enough to make up for the absence of team captain Desiderio whom Perasol opted to sit out to get some rest. Arvin Tolentino topped the scoring column for Gilas cadets with 14 points. Now at 1-4, they need to win out in their remaining assignments just to have a chance of advancing to the next round.

Fernandez: You won’t see Gilas Cadets’ full capabilities this early

The Gilas Cadets' stint in the Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup did not start the way they hoped it would. In the three games the Cadets played, all have ended in defeats in one form and another. Gilas' latest loss was against 22-time NCAA champion San Beda with the Red Lions humbling the Cadets 91-70 Sunday at Filloil Flying V Centre. Red Lions head coach Boyet Fernandez, however, showed no doubt on the Cadets' capabilities. "You won't see their strength and full capabilities this early," said Fernandez, who once suited up for the Philippines back in the 90s. Gilas, which is at the bottom of Group A, first loss to Ateneo in the opener, 75-69, then dropped its second game...Keep on reading: Fernandez: You won’t see Gilas Cadets’ full capabilities this early.....»»

San Beda dismantles Gilas Cadets in 21-point blowout

San Beda University ripped apart a disorganized Gilas Cadets side with a punishing 91-70 blowout win Sunday to bounce back from a previous setback in Group A of the 12th FilOil Flying V Preseason Cup at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Red Lions bared their teeth right from the get-go to bury the Asian Games-bound national team early and cruised to their second win in three outings. “My boys played today. I challenged them today that the character of the team will be tested, on how we will comeback after that loss against Ateneo,” said San Beda coach Boyet Fernandez, whose wards played their last game before flying to Miami, Florida next week for their US training. James Canlas led the Red Lions, who will back in the tournament on June 1 against University of the Philippines, with 16 points while Jeramer Cabanag had 15. Donald Tankoua finished with a double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds while Javee Mocon had eight markers and 10 boards for San Beda.          The Red Lions ballooned their lead to 78-47 off a fastbreak layup from Calvin Oftana with 6:28 left in the game. Gilas tried to mount a rally that came a little too late, bringing their deficit down to 80-62 with 4:01 left off a Ricci Rivero slam dunk. But San Beda answered with a couple of baskets to quell the run and walk away with a morale-boosting win. National University Bullpup Carl Tamayo spearheaded the Gilas Cadets with 13 points while Kobe Paras and JJ Alejandro chipped in with 11 markers each.   Box scores: San Beda (91) – Canlas 16, Cabanag 15, Tankoua 13, Mocon 8, Soberano 8, Oftana 7, Carino 5, Tongco 5, Presbitero 4, Eugene 4, Abuda 2, Cuntapay 2, Mocon Ju 2, Bahio 0, Burri 0, Abadeza 0. Gilas  (70) – Tamayo 13, Paras 11, Alejandro 11, Rivero Ri 9, Tolentino Ar 7, Ambohot 7, Tuffin 4, Gozum 4, Tratter 2, Desiderio 2, Gomez de Liano Ju 0, Rivero Pr 0, Tolentino Vi 0.   Quarter scores: 20-15; 45-30; 67-43; 91-70.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
