Perpetual overpowers LPU in season opener

Games Monday: (FilOil Flying V Centre, San Juan) 9:30 a.m. -- Letran vs. Mapua (jrs) 11 a.m. –- Letran vs. Mapua (w) 12:30 p.m. -- JRU vs. SSC-R (w) 2:00 p.m. -- JRU vs SSC-R (m)   University of Perpetual Help gave new coach Macky Carino a welcome gift Sunday after sweeping past a limping Lyceum of the Philippines University side, 25-21, 25-17, 25-22, in the 93rd NCAA women’s volleyball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Veteran 6-foot-1 middle Lourdes Clemente led the Lady Altas with 14 points coming off eight attacks, four kill blocks and an ace. Cindy Imbo and Bianca Tripoli added 13 and 10 markers, respectively, while Jowie Versoza, who took the starting opposite spiker spot after Jhona Rosal was diagnosed with a cyst on her ovary just two days ago. “Happy. Siyempre unang pasok ng taon nanalo agad kami,” said Carino, who came in just two months ago as replacement for Sammy Acaylar after bolting out of College of St. Benilde. “Siguro kasi nagkaroon kami ng kaunting problema bago kami mag-game today kasi may isa akong player na na-ospital kasi may cyst sa ovary.” After a cruising in the first two sets, the Las Pinas-based squad faced a stiff resistance from the Lady Pirates, who only had eight players available in the match, in the third frame. LPU came back from an 18-23 deficit and closed the gap, 22-23. Imbo doused cold water on the Lady Pirates’ run with an thunderous kill that went through the defensive wall of LPU but Mery Rose Bongabong committed an error on a joust to surrender the match to Perpetual. Christine Miralles scored nine points while skipper Bien Juanillo and Monica Sevilla added seven each for the Lady Pirates, who lost some of their players due to academics while Rocelyn Hongria is yet to return from the States.     Perpetual completed a sweep of LPU with victories in other fronts. Noel Kampton and Ivan Encila scored 13 and 12, respectively, to power the defending champion Junior Altas to a walk in park win over the Junior Pirates, 25-18, 25-20, 25-13, while the Altas made short work of the Pirates, 25-19, 25-13, 25-18.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

NCAA Season 94: Lady Altas shock Lady Chiefs to take series opener

University of Perpetual Help started out cold. The Lady Altas needed a little time to heat up but when they got their game going, Perpetual completed a come-from-behind 21-25, 25-17, 25-21, 25-20, win over two-time defending champion Arellano University in Game 1 of the NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball best-of-three Finals at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan Friday.    Perpetual, which won their fifth straight game, recovered from a slow start to move a step closer to claiming its first title since winning it all in Season 89.     Game 2 is on February 8. Graduating hitter Cindy Imbo punched in 16 attacks in her 18-point outing while adding 16 excellent receptions for the Lady Altas. Jhona Rosal had 12 markers, 10 coming off attacks, while Hannah Suico and Shyra Umandal got 10 points each for Perpetual, which landed 49 kill points behind graduating setter Necelle Gual's 23 excellent sets. The Lady Altas got their rhythm going early in the second set to control the frame. With momentum on its side, Perpetual dictated the tone in the next two sets.  The Lady Altas opened a 17-11 lead in the fourth set before staving off the Lady Chiefs comeback attempt.            "Siyempre gusto kong bumawi sila agad. Sinabi ko hindi magiging madali yun kung di natin aayusin ang mga pagkukulang natin. 'Yun nga sa kanila nyo na narinig na maganda ang respond ng mga bata pagdating sa usapan namin," said Perpetual coach Macky Carino, who is looking to steer the Lady Altas to their fourth title overall.   "Then sabi ko one set at a time. Galing tayo sa talo so yung second set kailangan makuha muna natin then yung mg succeeding sets natin ilaro talaga natin ang pinaka-best natin and ayun nagawa naman nila," added Carino, whose squad survived four do-or-die games starting from the last two elims games before booting out twice-to-beat College of St. Benilde in the Final Four.     The Las Pinas-based squad also won in the men’s and juniors division Finals opening games and inched closer to completing a rare triple crown.   Regine Arocha was the only player in double figures for Arellano U with 17 points while Carla Donato and Mikaela Juanich had nine and eight markers, respectively.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA Season 94 volleyball: Lady Chiefs begin three-peat bid

Well-rested reigning champion Arellano University marches into battle Friday to begin its three-peat bid against a very hungry University of Perpetual Help side in Game 1 of the NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball Finals at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Explosive action of the best-of-three series opener will roll at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream. The Lady Chiefs advanced to their third straight championship appearance after making quick work of last year’s runner-up San Beda University last January 22 in the Final Four. Arellano U will try to overcome the challenge of the Lady Altas, who are making their first Finals stint since winning it all back in Season 89, to cement their dynasty and join San Sebastian College, Perpetual and Letran in the elite grand slam club.  “Kailangan talaga naming magtrabaho. Kailangan talagang mag-focus ng team ko at ibigay na nila ang 100 percent nila,” said Arellano U head coach Obet Javier, who is looking to steer his squad to its fourth title in five years.   Javier will pin his hopes on his top hitters in Necole Ebuen and veteran Regine Arocha with Carla Donato, Alyana San Gregorio, Princess Bello and seasoned setter Rhea Ramirez providing support. However, the Lady Chiefs, who defeated Perpetual in the elims, are sure to face stiff resistance from the Lady Altas. Perpetual is coming into the series brimming with confidence after a remarkable Final Four series where the no. 4 seed Lady Altas overcame College of St. Benilde’s twice-to-beat advantage. Behind the personal and season-best 32 points of Cindy Imbo, the Lady Altas completed their upset of top seed Lady Blazers in a thrilling five-set encounter. “Hindi pa tapos, umabot na kami ng Finals. Mas lalo naming kakapitan, mas lalo naming titibayan kasi Finals na 'yun eh,” Perpetual coach Macky Carino, who steered CSB to its breakthrough title in Season 91 before transferring last year. “Ang hirap ng pinagdaanan namin. Kami praktisado kami, 'yung kalaban namin nagpahinga ng matagal so advantage on our side.” Aside from Imbo, the Lady Altas will also lean on Jhona Rosal, Jenny Gaviola, Jowie Albert Versoza, setter Necelle Gual, Bianca Tripoli and Shyra Umandal. Game 2 of the series is on Februray 8 while Game 3, if needed, is on February 12.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA Season 94 volleyball: Perpetual earns Finals berth in thrilling comeback

University of Perpetual Help wanted to make history. The No. 4 seed Lady Altas wrote it Tuesday with a miraculous win. Perpetual came back from a 1-2 match deficit and showed nerves of steel in the closing stretch of the fifth set to escape with a hard-earned 25-17, 27-29, 19-25, 26-24, 16-14, win over top seed College of St. Benilde and clinch the last NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball Finals berth at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan Tuesday. The Lady Altas showed their big hearts and mental toughness, erasing a 12-22 deficit in the fourth set to force a decider and coming back from a 7-10 down in the fifth to set up a best-of-three Finals series against two-time defending champion Arellano University.   “Mental toughness,” said Lady Altas coach Macky Carino, whose squad defeated the twice-to-beat Lady Blazers in the Final Four opener last week. “Sabi ko sa kanila, ‘Hangga’t di tapos ang game, 'wag titigil na lumaban ng lumaban.”            Graduating hitter Cindy Imbo played her heart out to post a career-high and season-best 32 points to lead the Lady Altas back into the Finals for the first time in last four years. Imbo scattered 29 kills, two aces and one kill block while adding 14 digs and 11 receptions for an all-around performance for Perpetual, which last held the title back in Season 89 and first Finals appearance since finishing runner-up to Arellano U in Season 90. Jenny Gaviola got 10 markers while Hannah Suico and Jhona Rosal posted nine and eight markers, respectively, for the Las Pinas-based squad, which got its women's, men's and juniors team advance in the championship.  Game 1 of the best-of-three championship series opens on Friday. Perpetual saw itself get buried, 12-22, in the fourth frame before mounting an incredible 12-1 scoring spurt capped by Imbo's easy drop off CSB's misreceive to take a 24-23 lead. The two squads traded service errors in the next play before Imbo completed the fourth set comeback with a hit.     The Lady Altas again went down, 7-10, in the fifth frame before Imbo scored five of the next six points of Perpetual for a 13-10 advantage. The Lady Blazers countered to tie it at 14 before Imbo took matters on her own hands with a through the block hit and the championship berth-clinching service ace. Graduating Rachel Austero scored 17 points while Klarisa Abriam had 16 markers for CSB. Chelsea Umali landed seven aces for 14 markers while Felicia Cui got 11 for the Lady Blazers, who missed a return stint into the Finals for the third straight year since the Taft-based squad captured its breakthrough title under Carino in Season 91.      --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA Season 94: Lady Altas snatch first win

University of Perpetual Help made quick work of Emilio Aguinaldo College, 25-15, 25-8, 25-16, Thursday to barge in the win column in the NCAA Season 94 women's volleyball competition at the Lyceum of the Philippines University gym. Blanca Tripoli and Jhona Rosal showed the way for the Lady Altas, who erased the bitter memory of their five-set loss to San Beda University in the opener, with nine points each in the 55-minute duel. Cindy Imbo and Shyra Umandal combined for 15 markers for the Las Pinas-based squad, which rained down 35 attack points and frustrated the Lady Generals at the net with eight kill blocks. The Lady Altas also received 29 free points off EAC's errors. The Lady Generals suffered their second defeat in as many outings. No EAC player scored in double figures with Enrica Salud tallying a team-high eight points.

NCAA Season 94 volleyball: Lady Red Spikers, Lady Altas clash in opener

Last year’s runner-up San Beda University and University of Perpetual Help cross paths in an early battle of heavyweights in the NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball opener at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan Friday. Action starts at 2:00 p.m. and will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream. The Lady Red Spikers made history last year after closing the elimination round with an 8-1 record and barging in the Finals to face eventual champion Arellano University. San Beda may have bowed down in the title series but the experience it gained will surely help the Lady Red Spikers as they try for another shot at the throne. The Mendiola-based squad will parade an almost intact line up with Cesca Racraquin and the Viray twins Nieza and Jiezela tipped to be this season’s most dangerous trio. It has been eight years since the Lady Altas held the title. As season hosts, Perpetual will go all-out to begin its bid to return to its glory days on the right foot. The Last Pinas-based squad lost middle Lourdes Clemente and starting libero Marijo Medalla but will still be a team to beat with top hitters Jowie Albert Versoza, Blanca Tripoli, Cindy Imbo and setter Necelle Gual returning. Meanwhile, defending champion Altas battle the Red Spikers at 3:30 p.m. while reigning juniors titlists Junior Altas clash with the Red Cubs at 5:00 p.m.   ---        Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

San Beda may have claimed the opening day victory against Perpetual Help, 67-65, in the NCAA Season 94 men's basketball tournament, but main man Robert Bolick wasn't happy with how the Red Lions got the win.

Coaching change to Frankie Lim is much welcome for Perpetual

HOW’D THEY DO LAST SEASON? 4-14, ninth YES, THEY’RE STILL HERE: AJ Coronel, Prince Eze WELCOME TO THE FAMILY: Frankie Lim (coach), Kim Aurin, Edgar Charcos, Jielo Razon GOOD LUCK ON FUTURE ENDEAVORS: Nosa Omorogbe (coach), Gab Dagangon, GJ Ylagan, Keith Pido (injured – out for season) WHAT SHOULD WE EXPECT FROM PERPETUAL? One thing’s for sure, this Perpetual team is not Frankie Lim’s team – not yet at least. The four-time NCAA champion coach had only officially taken the reins earlier last January and would need at least a year to gather and grow the team he has in mind. “I spoke to the (school’s) chairman and sinabi ko sa kanya na there’s nothing much we can do right now. Maybe in 2019, 2020 then we can build up a better team.” – head coach Frankie Lim That doesn’t mean, however, that the Altas will be pushovers in the upcoming season. Instead, the exact opposite is true as with a stern mentor like Lim on the sidelines and with talented pieces such as Nigerian powerhouse Prince Eze and versatile wing AJ Coronel as well as solid transferees Kim Aurin and Edgar Charcos on the floor, the Las Pinas-based ballers still have what it takes to compete. And who knows, Lim may very well do what he does – turning foreign reinforcement Eze into an MVP frontrunner. After all, that’s exactly what he did with the likes of Sam Ekwe and Sudan Daniel. WHO IS/ARE THE PLAYER/S TO WATCH OUT FOR FROM PERPETUAL? With Lim at the helm, everybody should expect a more consistent and more focused Eze. Last year, the 6-foot-11 center was the frontrunner for MVP after the first round, but was unable to lift his team onto the playoffs and thus lost out on the MVP to LPU’s CJ Perez. “Ang alam ko dati, he only goes to practice when he wants to, but since I came in, he comes to practice every single day. He works hard and that’s why he has a good chance (at MVP).” – head coach Frankie Lim Scoring forward Aurin and steady point guard Charcos are also ready and raring to prove themselves in their second chances after stints in JRU and UE, respectively. “We have a good core. Competitive siya.” – head coach Frankie Lim Most of all, though, this will be the season for Lim to show the world that he has still got it, bringing another team to legitimate and consistent contention. WHY SHOULD WE ROOT FOR PERPETUAL? Perpetual has always known its identity – one built on stout defense and disciplined offense. Even with Lim in charge, that’s not changing. Meaning, the Altas we loved when the likes of Jong Balorio, Harold Arboleda, and Scottie Thompson were playing are still here. “I didn’t come here to lose. I want to win and that’s why we’re doing everything possible to make good things happen here.” – head coach Frankie Lim WHERE WOULD PERPETUAL BE AT THE END OF NCAA SEASON 94? Just like a season ago, Perpetual could very well be the league’s giant-killers as, if all is well, they could match up with the best of them. Matching up is a different matter from pulling it off, however, and the Altas aren’t there just yet. “Hindi ko masabi exactly kung hanggang saan (mararating namin), pero for sure, we will compete. ‘Di man kami mag-champion, we will compete. Makikita niyo na it is fun to watch Perpetual.” – head coach Frankie Lim WHEN IS PERPETUAL’S FIRST GAME IN NCAA SEASON 94? As if the season opener on July 7 at the MOA Arena needed even more color, Lim’s first game for Perpetual comes against the San Beda side he once led to four championships in five seasons. Yes, it’s the league’s traditional matchup between defending champions and season hosts – only now, with a lot more spice. As always, all of the #GalingNCAA will be on S+A, S+A HD, LIGA, LIGA HD, and livestream. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

NCAA 94 opens with San Beda vs ex-coach Frankie Lim and Perpetual

San Beda University will begin its title defense in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament up against somebody who knows a thing or two about its winning tradition. The Red Lions’ first test in the new season will come on July 7 at the MOA Arena and will come against hosts University of Perpetual Help and its new coach in Frankie Lim. As always, the latest tournament in the first and oldest collegiate league in the Philippines will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream. In the season-opener tipping off at 2:00 PM, San Beda will trot out an almost intact lineup still led by Mythical selection Javee Mocon, Finals MVP Donald Tankoua, and top gun Robert Bolick. Also expected to contribute are AC Soberano, Clint Doliguez, and Jomari Presbitero as well as prized rookie Evan Nelle. Opposite them will be Lim who won four championships as Red Lions mentor in the 2000s and who now leads the Altas as they try to return to relevance. He will lean on holdovers Prince Eze and AJ Coronel as well as incoming talent like Edgar Charcos and Jielo Razon. Of course, before the first game of Season 94, there will be opening ceremonies at 12:00 PM. In the day’s other game at 4:00 PM, Season 93 runner-up Lyceum of the Philippines University embarks on a new voyage with San Sebastian College-Recoletos as the first obstacle in its way.

Arellano U eyes solo lead; Perpetual, LPU begin quest

Games Sunday: (FilOil Flying V Centre, San Juan) 8:00 a.m. –- LPU vs. Perpetual (jrs) 9:30 a.m. -- LPU vs. Perpetual (m) 11 a.m. –- LPU vs. Perpetual (w) 12:30 p.m. -- EAC vs. Arellano (w) 2:00 p.m. -- EAC vs Arellano (m) 3:30 p.m. – EAC vs. Arellano (jrs)   After a dominating win to open its title-retention bid, Arellano University looks to take an early solo lead on Sunday when the Lady Chiefs take on Emilio Aguinaldo College in the 93rd NCAA women’s volleyball competition. Game time is at 12:30 p.m. at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Behind Regine Arocha’s 12-point outing and superb debut of transferee setter Sarah Verutiao, the Lady Chiefs easily hurdled Mapua University, 25-10, 25-17, 25-13, Thursday that extended Arellano U’s winning streak to 13 since their championship run last season.    Although the Lady Chiefs are heavily favored to prevail over the Lady Generals, who lost to an eight-woman San Sebastian College, 16-25, 19-25, 16-25, in the season-opener, head coach Obet Javier is not taking EAC lightly. “Sa EAC ganoon din bago ang coach nakita ko medyo may konting adjustments sila. Kasi nakita ko noong liga namin sa Founder’s Cup, nakita ko na rin ang position ng player,” said Javier, who steered Arellano to its second title in three years last season in a Finals sweep of the thrice-to-beat Grethcel Soltones-led Lady Stags. “Nakita ko kanina (against San Sebastian College) na mayroon silang kaunting adjustments ng player so sinabi ko sa team na kailangang paghandaan namin,” he added. Verutiao, who had 28 excellent sets as backup to injured playmaker Rhea Ramirez, is expected to deliver the same numbers to utilize the firepower of Arocha, Jovelyn Prado, Mary Anne Esguerra and middle Andrea Marzan. The Lady Generals will pin their hopes on Ladeisheen Magbanua, Jaylene Lumbo and Yvette Tongco. Meanwhile, Perpetual Help will try to give new coach Macky Carino a good welcome gift when the Lady Altas clash with Lyceum of the Philippines University at 11:00 a.m. Carino, who resigned from his post as College of St. Benilde coach a few months back, will bank on Lourdes Clemente, Cindy Imbo and setter Necelle Gual. The Lady Pirates will have to look for other scoring options with top hitter Cherilyn Sindayen skipping this season because of academics.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Blazers turn in best outing of season to sweep Altas

College of St. Benilde in the NCAA 93 Men’s Basketball Tournament came via forfeiture and came at the expense of University of Perpetual Help. This time around on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, the Blazers left no doubt on who was the better team, destroying the Altas by 28 points, 83-55. The Taft-based team got off to a scorching 23-6 start and never lifted its foot off the pedal until the final buzzer. It was, without a doubt, CSB’s biggest win in the season. “We wanted to win convincingly. We just played good basketball on both ends and finally, we were able to get over that hump,” head coach TY Tang said after they ensured that they still had a fighting chance in the tournament. The two teams were matched up against each other to start the season and Perpetual came out on top, 69-65. However, the Altas were clad in maroon then when they were scheduled to be donning their light uniforms. As such, the decision was overturned in favor of the Blazers. There were no questions whatsoever in their second round meeting as Tang’s team dominated most of the statistics: 30-19 in made field goals, 19-10 in assists, 16-29 in turnovers, and 42-26 in inside points. “We had that motivation,” the head coach said. “We just wanted to prove a point that (season-opener) just slipped out of our hands.” Edward Dixon had a second straight 20-point game with 21 points on top of seven rebounds in this one. Coming off a one-game suspension, Carlo Young also made his presence felt by scoring 14 points. CSB’s lead grew to as high as 32 points in the final frame and in the end, they completed an elimination round sweep of Perpetual. More importantly, at 3-9, they still have a chance, however slim it may be, at the Final Four. They’re not thinking about that just yet, however, as Tang said, “Our mindset right now is we want to win as much games as we want. What’s more important is top pick up learnings the rest of the way.” On the other hand, the Altas’ playoff picture got dimmer as they suffered a shock defeat. With a 4-7 record, they fail to take a step forward and remain tied for seventh. No one was in double-digit for them. MVP leader Prince Eze was shackled to only six points.
