Juan GDL guaranteed all of this even before UAAP 81

Safe to say, along with ice, Juan Gomez de Liano has confidence running through his veins. That is exactly why the University of the Philippines’ second-year stud had a promise to his fans even before the beginning of UAAP Season 81. “I could say the Final Four is a sure spot for us,” he said then. After a 3-5 record in the first eight games, that looked like a farfetched idea for the Fighting Maroons. But then, something just clicked and they wound up their campaign by winning five of the last six games. For Juan GDL, neither he nor his teammates ever stopped believing. “I knew it was coming. I actually thought na last year pa nga dapat sana, but we fell short,” he said. He then continued, “I promised ever since offseason na we’re gonna make the Final Four. Here we are.” Indeed, with a convincing victory versus De La Salle University, State U booked a ticket into the Final Four for the first time since 1997. And they got it just the way team captain Paul Desiderio wanted them to – “16 Strong.” In the end, Juan GDL had 27 points, four assists, and three rebounds while kuya Javi had his own 19 markers built on five triples. MVP frontrunner Bright Akhuetie posted another double-double of 16 points and 20 rebounds while Desiderio chipped in 10 markers, four rebounds, four assists, and two steals. “We just stayed together as one unit. We never gave up even though there were a lot of struggles and ups and downs,” Juan GDL said. “We just stayed together and that was the most important thing.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PVL: Perlas Spikers eye bounce back win, semis seat

After a shocking loss the last time out, BanKo marches back into action hoping to get back on the winning track and secure a spot in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference Final Four. The Perlas Spikers take on a desperate Pocari Sweat-Air Force side on Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Opening serve is at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream. BanKo saw its three-game winning streak snapped by PetroGazz in a disappointing 11-25, 23-25, 18-25 defeat just a day after the Perlas Spikers scored a dominating sweep of semis-bound Ateneo-Motolite. BanKo holds an 8-3 win-loss record in third place behind the Lady Eagles (10-3) and Creamline (8-2) and are already secured of at least a playoff for a semis spot. But the Perlas Spikers remain wary of the dangerous Lady Warriors, who nipped them in five sets in their first meeting in Baliwag, Bulacan. Pocari Sweat is in desperate need of wins in their remaining three games to keep its semis hopes alive. The Lady Warriors are outside of the top four, holding a 5-6 mark, a game and a half away from fourth running PetroGazz. Pocari Sweat despite the gallant effort put up by Myla Pablo, Jeanette Panaga, Del Palomata and Iari Yongco fell short in their last outing at the hands of the Alyssa Valdez-led Cool Smashers, 25-23, 21-25, 20-25, 25-22, 9-15, in Legazpi City last Saturday.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Guns N’ Roses at PH Arena: Rousing, expansive, historic

Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan and the rest of Guns N' Roses' present incarnation performed like a well-oiled machine Nov. 11 at the Philippine Arena--with Rose pausing only after the first part of a three-hour show to greet the crowd with a shy-sounding "How ya doin'?" Rose, the American band's controversial frontman notorious in the past for tardiness and unpredictable behavior, personified professionalism and showmanship. Belying his age and excess weight, the 56-year-old lead singer was all over the stage--running, dancing and egging on the audience to enjoy the experience of an authentic rock 'n' roll gig. His shrilly pipes--which defined heavy metal's signature vocals pioneer...Keep on reading: Guns N’ Roses at PH Arena: Rousing, expansive, historic.....»»

Rugby trained La Salle s Taane Samuel to get physical in UAAP 81

Taane Samuel finally played a full game for De La Salle University in the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament. After missing 12 games due to a Jones fracture on his left foot, the Kiwi big man contributed eight points and three rebounds in the Green Archers’ 62-71 loss to archrival Ateneo de Manila University on Sunday. Of course, the first-year player acknowledged that it was pretty difficult to have his return come at a rivalry game. “It was tough, it was definitely tough especially since it’s an Ateneo-La Salle game,” he told reporters post-game. That was even truer as, apparently, he only found out that he was getting back into action just a day before the game itself. “I actually only got told yesterday that I was actually gonna play. Before that, I was just told I’m gonna be running and jogging,” he shared. He then continued, “I’m just really happy to be playing again.” Indeed, it was very much evident that Samuel was overjoyed to be taking the floor once more as he already had four points and three rebounds in just the first half. That, as well as some up close and personal moments with La Salle players. Asked about it after game, the 6-foot-8 center answered, “It’s just banter. It’s just in the game. Whatever happens on the court stays on the court.” He then continued, “I have a lot of respect to every player in every team. They’re just doing what they can do to win – just like what we’re doing.” After all, physicality is just what Samuel promises to bring to the table. “I’m kind of used to the physicality, coming from a rugby background before basketball. If someone pushes, I’ll push back,” he said. He then continued, “I mean, it’s nothing new to me. I’ll just keep matching and keep trying to play like how they play.” The even better news is that the 19-year-old is he would only get better. “(Doctors) say it’s fully healed. My rehab is going well,” he said. He then continued, “I’m not 100 percent yet, but after a couple of weeks, I’ll be good.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
