Metro Star Realty and Team Core to represent PH in Hoopbattle Championship in China

Metro Star Realty and Team Core booked their ticket to the HoopBattle Championship in China after finishing on top of the first ever Vivo HoopBattle Championship Philippines last Sunday (July 29) at the Market! Market! Activity Center, which aired live on ABS-CBN S+A and via livestream on ‪sports.abs-cbn.com. Led by 6’7 Jamal Thomas, who was also named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player, Metro Star Realty dominated Team Core, 21-10, in the final match to win the P200,000 grand prize of the 3x3 basketball tournament brought to the country by Ayala Malls and ABS-CBN Sports with co-presenter Vivo Philippines and in cooperation with Virtual Playground. Thomas and teammates Joseph Navarro, Reinier Quinga, and Argene Sabalza will represent the Philippines in the HoopBattle Championship in China later this year, where they will battle foreign teams for up to P3 million worth of prizes.  “It’s mission accomplished for me. I’ve always wanted to make my lola proud and make a name for myself and my family. I’m totally humbled and blessed,” said Thomas, who is currently a practice player for a local professional basketball team. Team Core, composed of Maharlika Basketball Pilipinas League players Axel Torres, John Vidal, John Cauilan, and JR Alabanza, also qualified to play in China, and took home P100,000 as the tourney’s second best team. “For me sobrang saya ng feeling, sobrang blessed, kasi hindi namin hiniling pero binigay ni God. Sobrang thankful kami. Mahirap pero sabi nga nila mag-enjoy lang,” shared Torres, whose team played undermanned with JR Alabanza getting injured prior the games. Both teams emerged on top after a single round robin elimination with six other teams that topped the Vivo HoopBattle legs held in different Ayala malls this July. The Metro Star Realty beat Team Ballers in the semifinals, while Team Core defeated Team Arellano University 2 in their own knockout game. The other teams that made it to the last eight were Just Coco led by Prince Rivero, Team Enderun bannered by former Batang Gilas Mike Dela Cruz, and Team F4 led by UP Fighting Maroon AJ Madrigal, and Team BS Susim Shipping. In an exhibition three point shootout, the tournament’s best long-range shooters Marco Sario (Team Ballers), AJ Madrigal (Team F4), and Mike Dela Cruz (Team Enderun) also bested Chinese players Jason Song, Camel Luo, and Young Sean, drawing cheers from Filipinos watching live in the venue. Song and Luo play for Chong Son Kung Fu in the ASEAN Basketball League, while Sean played in the 2014 FIBA 3x3 World Tour. HBC president Temple Deng said he is very happy with the turnout of the first HBC event outside China during an interview with ABS-CBN Sports anchor Andrei Felix, who hosted the event with UAAP basketball analyst Bea Daez and NCAA courtside reporter Roxanne Montealegre. “Just one word, amazing. I love it. They were very entertaining. Their performances were amazing,” he said. The tournament, which aims to highlight the both upcoming and undiscovered basketball talents in the country, started with 48 teams composed of players from both amateur and professional ranks. It was played under the strict guidelines of FIBA and sanctioned by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas. “This only shows how big 3x3 basketball already is here in the country. Players from all walks of life came to participate here. I know we even had a surprise team composed of security guards of an Ayala Mall. In terms of the level of play, these guys have obviously been playing a lot of 3x3,” ABS-CBN Sports head Dino Laurena shared. AMSI Inc. general manager Gabby Katigbak also said they look forward to more partnerships like the Vivo HoopBattle that gives Filipino athletes a chance to showcase their talent. Fans who watched the event yesterday also enjoyed special appearances by OPM star Inigo Pascual and athletes Ponggay and Therese Gaston, Bobby Ray Parks Jr, Chris Tiu, and Jimmy Alapag. ABS-CBN Sports anchors Martin Javier and Renren Ritualo also served as commentators for the livestream of the games.

SWAG ON: The UAAP gears up with New Era PH

The most popular collegiate sports league in the Philippines just experienced a major style upgrade. New Era Philippines recently celebrated its third year anniversary along with the announcement of their biggest local collaboration at the Mega Fashion Hall in SM Megamall. The world-renowned headwear, apparel and accessories brand has officially partnered up with the UAAP (University Athletic Association of the Philippines) in preparation for its 81st season which begins on September 8. “We’ve been thinking about which local partnership we should do. One of them was the UAAP. Pretty much a lot of people here came from one of those schools in the league. New Era’s been in sports. Like, in the States, they sponsor the NCAA. Why should we not do it here?” said Melvin Lloyd Lim, Chairman and CEO of Authentic Caps Distribution, Inc. New Era is known for its partnerships with major professional sports organizations in the United States like the NBA, NFL and Major League Baseball. Despite having this image, New Era Philippines is optimistic about this new venture with the UAAP. “This isn’t the only collegiate partnership we have in the world. We actually have a number of them. The fans of our brand are 18 to 25 years old and in many cases college students. So, you think about the lifestyle consumer who buys New Era and are trying to put together an outfit. They can do it now sporting their university,” said Daniel Broderick, New Era Managing Director for Asia-Pacific. Also present at the event entitled, “Infinithree” was UAAP Executive Director, Atty. Rebo Saguisag who revealed the theme for UAAP Season 81 which will be hosted by National University. “The partnership between the UAAP and New Era is actually in line with our theme for the upcoming season which is ‘It All Begins Here’,” said Saguisag, who also added that the deal covers three years from the league’s 81st season to the 83rd season. Fans got a glimpse of the New Era UAAP cap collection which can now be pre-ordered here Since the arrival of New Era to the country three years ago, the brand has expanded from just having one store to 11. Their products are also being sold at other retailers like NBA Store, Capital and The Nines. Lim and Broderick are delighted with the growth of the Filipino cap community. “When I see people in the mall or outside, a lot of them are wearing New Era caps. I’m very happy that they accepted it. Actually, I think we are a cap wearing country. Before, I was thinking, ‘It’s a premium cap. Will they accept it?’ So, I’m just very thankful to the Filipinos for accepting it,” said Lim. “It’s beyond our expectation. We knew we had a huge amount of fans here. But, it’s about finding the right people to bring our brand to life. And our friends at Authentic Caps have been able to take our vision and bring it to life here,” said Broderick. Moving forward, Lim, the Chairman and CEO of Authentic Caps Distribution, Inc. is envisioning more collaborations with local leagues and even local artists. “Act Global, think Local. New Era has a mentality like that. That’s why we’re doing a lot of collaborations with local artists. Gloc-9 is the first but, we’ll be doing more. I want to represent the Philippines because this is New Era Philippines.” With the UAAP becoming the first sports league to partner up with New Era, Broderick, who hails from New York sees this opportunity as a way to really show everybody in the country what the brand is all about. “I think it really is a new beginning for us in this Philippine market because the reality is, we’re coming into the market primarily as a streetwear brand. But, if you look into our stores, ‘what do you see?’ It’s more of a lifestyle fashion environment. It’s not really a sports environment per se. With the UAAP, it really gets into who we are as a brand. We really are rooted as a sports brand.”    .....»»

Roman to LGBT community: Be realistic on same-sex marriage

Bataan 1st District Rep. Geraldine Roman on Sunday told equality advocates to be "realistic" about same-sex marriage, defending her stance that it would be easier to convince her colleagues to pass a law on civil partnerships instead. Amid the celebration of Pride Month, the country's first transgender representative reacted to online criticism by members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community who were disappointed over the compromises she defended as natural to Philippine politics.

PVL: Cagande making a name for herself in PVL debut

BaliPure-National University may be the youngest team in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference with its core composed of high school standouts but the Water Defenders are already making their presence felt and could give other established squads a run for their money. After falling short in their debut, BaliPure went on a roll, winning their next three matches to climb to a share of the lead with Creamline and PayMaya. American import Janisa Johnson is scoring consistently since she checked in for BaliPure in their second match while young libero Jennifer Nierva is holding the fort on floor defense. But the recent success of the Water Defenders could also be attributed to the steady game and quick adjustments of setter Joyme Cagande. The incoming Lady Bulldog has been lording over the setting department with an average of 9.1 excellent set per frame.     Known for her superb playmaking for the four-peat UAAP high school champion Nazareth School of NU, Cagande continues to dazzle even in the import-laden commercial league. The reigning UAAP high school Best Setter delivered her best performance yet with 54 excellent sets Wednesday in BaliPure’s 25-22, 25-22, 22-25, 32-30, win over BanKo at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.    Cagande welcomes the challenge of setting up plays to imports Johnson and Alexis Matthews, who are grizzled veterans in international play.      “Challenging siya kasi especially may imports. Iba kasi yung speed ng import, iba yung height ng import so kailangan talaga nandoon ang dedication mo para makuha ang eksaktong set for them,” said Cagande, daughter of a Philippine Star senior photographer Joven. Cagande is particularly comfortable playing with Johnson, making their tandem one of the most dangerous setter-hitter partnerships in the tournament. “Actually po kay Ate Janisa sobrang walang pressure kasi nandoon lang ang support niya lagi,” she said. “Always kapag ang set ko mali nandoon lagi ang feedback niya po kaya hindi gaanong mahirap makipag-work together with her.” Johnson in her previous interview said that she likes her role as mentor and ‘mother’ for the young BaliPure players. Cagande surely is learning a lot from the hitter, who is just coming off two big tournaments in France.  “‘Yung mga adjustments po sa mga mistakes (ang tinuturo niya). Sinasabi niya na OK lang mag-commit ng mistakes basta yung ibibigay nyong solution kaagad nandoon,” Cagande said of one of the things she learned from Johnson. With a 3-1 win-loss record the Water Defenders are in the thick of the battle for the outright semis seats. Expect Cagande to be one of the BaliPure players leading the way.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
