ABS-CBN launches National Cheer campaign during Pacquiao fight

One nation, one voice, one cheer. ABS-CBN launches a song in celebration of the string of victories that Filipinos have achieved in the international arena, showing the greatness of our people to the world. Entitled “Galing Natin Ito!” and sang by 29 Kapamilya artists, the song highlights the heart, wisdom, and strength of Filipinos that enable them to triumph over challenges in life. The song’s recording music video premiered during the fight of Sen. Manny Pacquiao and Keith Thurman that exclusively aired on ABS-CBN platforms including Channel 2, SKY Sports PPV, S+A, and iWant. It features Angeline Quinto, Bamboo, Billy Crawford, Daniel Padilla, Darren Espanto, Erik Santos, Gary Valenciano, Gloc 9, Iñigo Pascual, Jason Dy, Jed Madela, Kyla, KZ Tandingan, Martin Nievera, Moira Dela Torre, Morissette Amon, Ogie Alcasid, Piolo Pascual, Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Sarah Geronimo, Shanti Dope, Toni Gonzaga, TNT Boys Mackie Empuerto, Francis Concepcion, at Keifer Sanchez, Yeng Constantino and ZsaZsa Padilla. “Galing Natin Ito!” aims to unite Filipinos in showing support to our fellowmen who are raising the flag of the Philippines and bringing glory to the country in their respective fields and professions. They include athletes like Pacquiao, who continues to make history in boxing, beauty queens like Pia Wurtzbach and Catriona Gray who were named Miss Universe because of their beauty, wit, and advocacy, and thousands other of Filipinos making their mark around the globe. The song is the official theme of ABS-CBN’s National Cheer Campaign that celebrates the success of Filipinos to inspire the nation to unite and help unleash each other’s potential for greatness. With its catchy lyrics and melody, “Galing Natin Ito!” can be used to cheer on Filipinos during international competitions to boost their morale and make our presence felt in the world just like how it is done in basketball, volleyball, boxing, and football events. A full music video will be released soon featuring more cheerleading and dancing from the JRU Pep Squad, Mapua Cheerping Cardinals, Arellano Chief Squad, UPHSD Altas Perpsquad, and the UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe, and dance crews Precom, Aces PH, and Prime, which are all performing together for the first time. The song’s lyrics were written by Jerome Clavio, Jan Dormyl Espinosa, and Tiny Corpuz from the ABS-CBN Creative Communications Management, with Gloc-9 and Shanti Dope, while the music was composed by Thyro Alfaro. Behind the music videos are directors Paolo Ramos, Peewee Gonzales, and Lorenz Morales as directors with Elirose Borja and Patrick de Leon as creative directors, DJ San Jose, Jerome Clavio, and Lara Allardo as producers and Ruf Rosario as choreographer.

SUPER SHOWDOWN: UST four-peat vs La Salle four-peat

It has been a week since the legend of Aric Del Rosario came to a close. And of course, the passing of the always amiable mentor fondly called "Tatay Aric" only recalled his most memorable milestone - that of four consecutive championships for University of Sto. Tomas. In the same way that Del Rosario and the Growling Tigers lorded over the early-to-mid '90s, however, so did De La Salle University dominate the late '90s and early '00s. With first-time head coach Franz Pumaren at the helm, the Green Archers ran roughshod over the rest of the league for their very own four consecutive championships. And so, from 1993 to 2001, the UAAP became a battleground for supremacy between two teams - two teams that each won four titles in a row and two teams that would ultimately go down in history. Which four-peat was more impressive, however? This is the question we hope to answer in ABS-CBN Sports' Super Showdown. To concretize the strengths and weaknesses of Coach Aric's UST and Coach Franz's La Salle when compared to one another, we will be judging them in five categories (talent, system, level of competition, legacy, and impact) with a boxing-style 10-point must system determining the decision. TALENT You can't win four consecutive championships without talent - and without a doubt, both UST and La Salle were filled to the brim with talent in those days. All of Estong Ballesteros, Chris Cantonjos, Bal David, Dennis Espino, Rey Evangelista, Patrick Fran, Gerard Francisco, Henry Ong, Dale Singson, Siot Tangquincen, and Richard Yee were Growling Tigers in their four-peat. Meanwhile, the Green Archers had Dino Aldeguer, Don Allado, Mac Cardona, Mike Cortez, Mac Cuan, BJ Manalo, Renren Ritualo, Carlo Sharma, Adonis Sta. Maria, Mon Jose, Dominic Uy, Cholo Villanueva, Willy Wilson, and Joseph Yeo in their four-peat. Weighed against one another, La Salle had more players who became key contributors for PBA contenders in Cardona, Cortez, Ritualo, and Yeo. UST makes up for this with consistency, however, as not only did the likes of Espino, David, Evangelista, and Yee turn into rotation players in the PBA, they did so for a longer time compared to their green and white counterparts. More than that, the Growling Tigers hold a trump card over the Green Archers in this department in the form of national team players Espino and Evangelista. Advantage UST's four-peat, 10-9 SYSTEM In terms of name recognition, the famed "Pumaren Press" remains well-known to this day. With dogged defenders such as Aldeguer, Cortez, Jose, Cuan, and Villanueva at the head of the attack, playing against La Salle back then was not at all a fun proposition for opponents. Those turnovers were then quickly converted into easy baskets that, more often than not, led to wins - a recipe for success that still works until now. However, UST had some of the most complete teams in UAAP history during its four-peat and would most probably have had all the answers in the face of full-court pressure. In David, Fran, Francisco and Tangquincen, the Growling Tigers had steady ballhandlers who would have been prepared to the utmost by "Tatay Aric." And once they crossed over to their side of the court, good luck trying to stop, or even just slow down, Espino or Cantonjos at the post. Put simply, Del Rosario's black and gold machine just didn't have any holes or leaks back then. Advantage UST's four-peat, 10-9 LEVEL OF COMPETITION The UAAP was a gauntlet of good to great teams in La Salle's four-peat. For sure, winning a championship - let alone four in a row - was a tall task back then. Standing in the Green Archers' way were an Ateneo side that had Rich Alvarez, Rico Villanueva, Paolo Bugia, Larry Fonacier, and LA Tenorio; an FEU side that had Leo Avenido and Celino Cruz; a National U side that had Edward Asoro, Froilan Baguion, Alfie Grijaldo, and Rey Mendoza; a UE side that had Paul Artadi, Ronald Tubid, and James Yap; and a UST side that had Cyrus Baguio. Through its dynasty, the green and white had to down their archrival Blue Eagles once in the Finals, the Tamaraws twice in the Finals and once in the semis, the Growling Tigers twice in the semis and once in the Finals, and the Bulldogs once in the semis, That's not to say UST's four-peat was way easier, however. When the Growling Tigers sat on the throne, coming for them were Adamson's Kenneth Duremdes, who averaged more than 30 points per game in 1993, and EJ Feihl; Ateneo's Vince Hizon and Ritchie Ticzon; FEU's Long David and Nestor Echano; La Salle's Tony Boy Espinosa, Elmer Lago, Alvin Magpantay, Cali Orfrecio, Mark Telan, and Jason Webb; and National U's Danny Ildefonso and Lordy Tugade. Make no mistake, many of those names would go on to be PBA superstars themselves and the black and gold went through all of them and came away as winner. It's just that, during the Green Archers' four-peat, the league was fast becoming the killer competition from top to bottom that it is today. Advantage La Salle's four-peat, 10-8 IMPACT UST's 14-0 season sweep in 1993 forced the league to change its rules - rules that are enacted up to now. That year saw the supposed debut of the Final Four, but with the Growling Tigers winning each and every game of the elimination round, the new format wasn't meant to be. According to the then-league rule, a team that goes perfect through the elims is automatically the champion of the tournament. And so, after that year, that rule was no more and now, a team that goes perfect through the elims would still have to play in the Finals. How that UST dynasty was built also became the template for many championship cores to come as it heavily recruited outside Metro Manila. In fact, Tatay Aric was the pioneer in bringing over talent from Pampanga, now considered one of the hotbeds of Philippine basketball, with recruits like Espino. In the same light, La Salle's four-peat also expanded the league's horizons abroad with the likes of Cortez and Wilson taking their talents from the US to their native land. From then until now, Filipino-foreign players have actually become some sort of signature for Coach Franz, but there could be no doubt that he has only used it to great effect. The Green Archers' time at the top also coincided with archrival Ateneo's rise, rekindling a rivalry that would bring all of the UAAP to greater and greater heights. In all, however, UST just set the bar for what a team could win in the modern era - a bar that La Salle itself did its very best to clear. Advantage UST's four-peat, 10-9 LEGACY In Taft Avenue, championships have become the standard as La Salle has taken home three more trophies since its four-peat. In Espana, that '90s four-peat remains the glory days as UST has only been able to add one more title from there. Meaning, up to today, the Growling Tigers' four consecutive championships from 1993 to 1997 mean the world to Thomasians. Meanwhile, for Lasallians, that run from 1998 to 2001 is only expected for their teams - not the consecutive championships per se, but the continued contention, at the very least. Advantage UST's four-peat, 10-9 (Photo courtesy of UAAP Classics on Facebook) FINAL SCORE, 48-46, for UST's four-peat.....»»

Pasaol shows his class with 24 points as Zamboanga defeats Valenzuela

Zamboanga Family's Brand Sardines relied on a terrific night from Alvin Pasaol to subdue Valenzuela City Carga Backload Solution, 85-78, in Tuesday night action of the Chooks To Go Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Lakan Season. Val City were playing in their alternate home court, the brand-new Bahayang Pag-asa Basketball gym in Paso de Blas, Valenzuela City. But they could not give a full house of their fans a win, and thus stumble to 9-15. Zamboanga climbs to 15-10 as they continue their campaign for a higher playoff seed. Family's Brand star Pasaol tallied 24 points and 9 rebounds to grab the Chooks to Go Best Player Award. He revealed in his postgame interview that he is relishing the role of team leader. "Tinitignan ako ng Zamboanga team as a leader. Everyday, sa loob ng court at sa practices consistent ang ipapakita ko," said the former UE star. Family's Brand led 45-35 at the half thanks in part to Pasaol's 13 points in that time span. In a high scoring third quarter the Zamboanguenos shredded a porous Carga Backload Solution defense with balanced scoring to open up a 71-55 lead heading into the fourth. In the final quarter the home team could only get going offensively late in the game as Zamboanga secured the win. Pasaol got help on offense from Santy Santillan and Raffy Reyes, who picked up 14 and 12 points, respectively. Leading Val City in scoring was Paolo Hubalde with 16 markers. In the early evening match-up, the Davao Occidental Tigers - Cocolife withstood a strong second half charge from the Pasig Sta. Lucia Realtors to prevail, 75-71. The Tigers led 41-31 at the half but the Realtors won the third quarter 23-15 with a determined effort from Fonso Gotladera, who collected nine points, to pull to within 2, 56-54. Pasigueños Rob Manalang and Jeric Teng chipped in triples in the fourth, and when Josan Nimes laid in halfway through the fourth period, Sta. Lucia led 67-64. However, Davao roared back with an 8-0 run from Mark Yee, Ivan Ludovice and Billy Robles to seize back the initiative. In the endgame Pasig coach Bong de la Cuz eschewed his established stars and went with second-liners like Richard Velchez, Al Chavenia, and Thurlough Grealey. The shock troopers were unable to step up, and DavOc's vets closed out the game. Mark Yee was a stud for Davao once again, scoring 22 points and hauling down 16 boards. Such was the ex-pro's dominance that he had a triple double even before the third period was over. Manalang topscored for Pasig with 15. Cocolife wins a fourth straight game to climb to 20-3 and open up a 2-game lead atop the South Division over Bacoor. Pasig falls to 14-9. The first game saw the Pampanga Giant Lanterns - ADG Group of Companies lord over the Pasay Voyagers, 75-65. Lanterns guard Mark Cruz conducted a masterclass on how to play the point, dishing out 14 assists, six more than the rest of his team and only two less than the entire Voyagers squad combined. He also contributed 14 points, one less than Levi Hernandez's team-high 15. A stingy Kapampangan defense held Pasay to just 35% shooting as they drop to 13-11. ADG Group of Companies controlled the contest for most of the game but there was a late scare when a Jason Opiso three-bomb pulled Pasay to within five, 64-59, with two and a half minutes remaining. Opiso was Pasay's leading scorer with 12 points. The Giant Lanterns quashed the uprising with a Hernandez three and Dexter Maiquez jumper. Pampanga improves to 15-9 in the North Division......»»

SEA Games 2019 Opening Ceremonies: a collaboration of local and international talent

There is nothing like the 30th South East Asian (SEA) Games to help bring out the Pinoy spirit of bayanihan or community, as celebrated artists, production companies, youth groups, and many other organizations are uniting for the SEA Games 2019 Opening Ceremonies to be held on November 30, 2019, at the Philippine Arena. The grand event is set to be an exposition of Filipino culture, and contemporary music and dance, and a testament to the collaboration of great talents. Indeed, it embodies the games' credo of "We Win As One."  Among those who are joining hands to create this extravaganza include Palanca-award winning writer Floy Quintos, National Artist for Music and Ramon Magsaysay Awardee Maestro Ryan Cayabyab, US-based, Emmy-award winning live content creator FiveCurrents, and Filipino companies Video Sonic and Stage Craft International Inc. Heading the all-Filipino lineup of performers are: acclaimed singers Lani Misalucha, Christian Bautista, Aicelle Santos, Jed Madela, Elmo Magalona, KZ Tandingan, Iñigo Pascual, The TNT Boys, Ana Fegi, and Robert Seña, and international rap artist Apl d Ap. “This year’s opening ceremonies are envisioned as a showcase of the enduring aspects of Philippine traditional and contemporary culture,” explains Floy Quintos who is creative director of the 30th SEA Games Opening Ceremonies. The country’s premiere folk dance company, the Ramon Obusan Folkloric Group, is also contributing their skills together with hundreds of students from at least 12 different schools and colleges in Metro Manila. They will be dancing in elaborately choreographed production numbers with sets and costumes made by topnotch Filipino visual artists and designers. Eleven local beauty titleholders headed by Ms. Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach are also participating in the ceremonies. “The production’s aim is to show how aspects of culture reflect the energy, physical dexterity and competitive spirit of the Filipino,” Mr. Quintos elaborates.   The 30th SEA Games Opening Ceremonies is touted to be the biggest sports-related television special in Asia this year, as it will be broadcast live and nonstop in the Philippines and several countries in the region, including China and Japan. SEA Games 2019 organizers have found strong allies in Video Sonic and Stage Craft who are veterans in staging concerts and grand productions, and in FiveCurrents which has won 14 Emmy Awards and produced Olympic ceremonies such as the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics and London 2012 Summer Olympics......»»

PBA: With new milestones secured, Tenorio hopes for more

Following his Iron Man achievement, LA Tenorio has just added another pair of milestones to his colorful PBA career. With Ginebra’s win over Blackwater Wednesday in the 2019 Governors’ Cup, Tenorio now has 1,000 three-point shots and 800 steals for his career. He’s one of only two active players to achieve the milestones. He’s behind only James Yap for the 3-point shots made and behind only Chris Ross for most steals. For both categories, he’s the 7th player to achieve the feat all-time. “Another milestone. It just shows na I’ve been in the league for quite a while,” Tenorio said. “I don’t know what to say but thankful ako sa mga blessings na dumadating, sa tiwala ng teams na pinupuntahan ko when I started playing in the PBA,” he added. With another pair of milestones in the bag, Tenorio just looks to keep going and add more. LA certainly looks like he’s not slowing down anytime soon. Tenorio led the Gin Kings in scoring with 20 points in the victory over the Elite.   “I’m just very honored and thankful. Hindi naman tumitigil yun, tuloy tuloy pa,” LA said. “Bibilangin pa ni sir Fidel [Fidel Mangonon, head PBA statistician] yun. Sana marami pang mabilang,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
