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 .....»»

Bolick rues San Beda’s five measly assists in opening win

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. Bolick, who was vital in the Red Lions' closeout of the Altas, took a shot at himself and at the team with how they had just five assists throughout the game. "Assists are a part of playmaking and I didn't do a good job, maybe coach Boyet [Fernandez] will let me see the tapes," said Bolick Saturday at Mall of Asia Arena. "We had five assists compared to 19, we should've lost the game."

As heartbreaking as University of Perpetual Help's 67-65 loss to defending champion San Beda, head coach Frankie Lim decided to look at the silver lining of their opener in the NCAA Season 94 men's basketball tournament. The Altas went up against the formidable Red Lions whose only notable loss from last year's championship squad were big man Arnaud Noah and shooter Davon Potts. "You know, I'm happy with the performance of the players and I told them that they can go out of this place with your heads help up high because there was nothing to be ashamed of," said Lim Saturday at Mall of Asia Arena.

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.

Jaycee Marcelino nabs first NCAA 94 Player of the Week honors

Jaycee Marcelino would be the last person to go down without a fight. With EAC threatening for an upset against the powerhouse Lyceum squad, last season’s Rookie of the Year took it upon himself to avert a meltdown, going down to work in the fourth quarter as he racked 13 of his career-best 24 points in the Pirates’ 106-97 win over the Generals on Friday. “Ayaw ko matalo eh kaya pinag-pursigihan kong magtrabaho sa court para maibalik namin ang lamang namin at manalo kami,” he said, while also collecting eight rebounds, five steals, and two rebounds in the conquest. With those efforts, Marcelino has been cited as the first recipient of the Chooks-to-Go NCAA Press Corps Player of the Week this NCAA Season 94. Not only did the 20-year-old guard average 18.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 3.5 steals in the opening week, but he was also key in leading Lyceum to an unbeaten 2-0 record to gain early leadership this season. Marcelino was as stupendous back in opening weekend, unloading 13 points, five rebounds, four assists, and two steals in the Pirates’ 85-80 win against San Sebastian on Saturday as he perfectly complimented the 20-20 game of Cameroonian center Mike Nzeusseu. He bested fellow Pirate CJ Perez, Perpetual’s Edgar Charcos, Mapua’s Laurenz Victoria, San Beda’s Robert Bolick, and San Sebastian’s Michael Calisaan for the weekly plum awarded by scribes from print and online publications covering the beat. But despite the promising start he’s having, Marcelino knows better not to be satisfied as he expects another tough season ahead for Lyceum. “Yung mga ganitong laro, challenge ito sa amin para alam na namin ang dapat naming gawin pag ganito ulit ang nangyari,” he said......»»

NCAA: Two games in, Edgar Charcos already making waves for Perps

It seems that Edgar Charcos is already enjoying his stay in the NCAA. For his debut donning the Perpetual Altas uniform, he has already made noise as the scoring guard for Coach Frankie Lim's offense. And two games in, it seems the team is trying to brand themselves as no pushovers. Perpetual had taken two-time defending champion San Beda to the limit, and could have tied the game if it were not for the heroics of Robert Bolick on the defensive end. In that game, Charcos led the team in scoring with 14 markers. The Altas had scored a big win, their first of the season over revamped Letran, 78-75. And if it were not for the former UE Red Warrior's career-high 27 points, Perps may have already sunk to a 0-2 start. Charcos could have had more if he wasn’t saddled with four fouls in the first half where he scored 21, leading him to miss the entire third period altogether. "Charcos had a good game but he had four fouls. Masyado siya naging agresibo kanina," coach Frankie Lim said of his player's game. In facing Letran, he faced his teammate of two years in Recto, Bonbon Batiller, and of course, the two had some friendly banter. "Siguro challenge yun sa akin kasi alam niya rin yung laro ko, nagsama kami. Kaya ayun, hindi ko pinansin mga sinasabi niya, focused pa rin," Charcos said after the game. "Hindi naman ako inaasar, sinasabihan lang na 'dahan-dahan' ka lang. May plano talaga si coach na tumakbo ako so ayun." As for playing under Lim, who is returning from a seven-year coaching hiatus, the 5'8”guard beamed and praised his new mentor. "Sobrang galing niya mag-motivate, lahat parang tinuturo isa-isa, hindi yung kani-kaniya kami. Andyan siya lagi pag may problema kami. May mga problema kami, sinasabihan niya kami." In his first two games, Lim had already entrusted with him a major role in the offense, something Charcos could not pass up, and does his best to repay the trust given to him. "Di ko na inisip siguro [ang responsibilidad] kasi kailangan talaga mag-step up. Tulungan lang kami. Siguro challenge sa sarili ko. Syempre new school ko to, lakasan lang ng loob. Gawin mo ang pinapagawa niya sa akin." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»
