Coronel breaks out, Perpetual breaks into top four of NCAA 94

Coming off the biggest win for any team thus far in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament, University of Perpetual Help was as confident as it has ever been. That was very much evident on both AJ Coronel and Jielo Razon who teamed up to tow the Altas past Jose Rizal University, 85-73, on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Coronel caught fire from the get-go and wound up with a career-high 22 points to go along with 11 rebounds and two steals. Not that far behind was Razon who returned from a one-game absence to contribute 21 points and five rebounds. With those two taking charge, the struggles of Prince Eze didn’t even matter as they improved to 8-5 - forcing a tie for the fourth and final playoff berth with College of St. Benilde. Behind those two, Perps got off to a blazing beginning, scoring 11 straight points while holding their opponents scoreless for the first five minutes of the game. That lead would soon balloon to 14 points and they would never trail until the final buzzer. In the end, Eze still had 16 points and 13 rebounds, but shot 7-of-16 from the field and had six turnovers. Edgar Charcos was also relatively quiet, with only four points and eight assists in this one and yet, Perpetual had more than enough to build on its biggest win in two years. Last Friday, they became the first team in two seasons to down Lyceum of the Philippines in the elimination round. Now, the Altas have put themselves in the thick of things – tied with CSB for fourth and right behind 9-4 Colegio de San Juan de Letran at third. For the Heavy Bombers, Jed Mendoza gave his all as always with 22 points, five rebounds, and five assists while Leo Esguerra fired a career-best 21 markers. Those, though, proved to be insufficient to prevent their fall to 2-12. BOX SCORES PERPETUAL 85 – Coronel 22, Razon 21, Eze 16, Aurin 5, Jimenez 5, Charcos 4, Cuevas 4, Mangalino 3, Tamayo 3, Pasia 2, Peralta 0. JRU 73 – Mendoza 22, Esguerra 21, Estrella 10, Aguilar 8, Dela Virgen 3, Mallari 3, David 2, Doromal 2, Silvarez 0, Bordon 0, Padua 0. QUARTER SCORES: 23-15, 40-36, 67-56, 85-73. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

FIBA WORLD CUP: Lassiter-Wright is the shooter combo Gilas deserves

In an ironic twist of fate, three-point shooting has been one of the issues Gilas Pilipinas has been dealing with so far in the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers. In seven games so far, the Philippines is only shooting 28.5 percent from distance, which is 12th in a field of 16 teams. Gilas is only averaging 6.4 makes per game despite attempting an average of 22.6 shots per outing. In their last loss to Iran, Gilas shot 5/28 from three-point range for a woeful 17.9 percent. Fortunately, it looks like brighter days are ahead for Team Pilipinas from rainbow country as the national team is set to welcome back Matthew Wright from one-game suspension. The Fil-Canadian sniper is shooting 43.8 percent in these Qualifiers, second-best in Gilas. Wright will team up with Marcio Lassiter starting Monday against Qatar, giving the Philippines its best two-man shooter combo since Jeff Chan and Larry Fonacier shared the floor a couple of Gilas versions ago. "I'm excited because Marcio is one of the players I look up to," Wright said of his upcoming tandem with Lassiter. "Coming in, I've heard comparisons between us and it's very flattering with Marcio being a great shooter and a champion," he added. While it's they're first time teamming up ever, Wright is confident that he'll mesh well with Lassiter. As Gilas looks to recover from back-to-back losses in the Asian Qualifiers, a Lassiter-Wright combo should greatly help the national team's cause. "We get along off the court too. We have great chemistry and we will make things happen and open the floor for everybody else," Wright said. "We just got to do our job and knock down shots," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

ASIAN GAMES: PHI skateboarders try their luck to earn medals

PALEMBANG --- In the absence of top Japanese rivals Isa Kaya and Yososomi Sakakura, Cebuana Margielyn Arda Didal looms as the prohibitive women’s favorite in the 18th Asian Games skateboarding competitions opening at the Jakabaring Sport City Skate Park on Tuesday. “With the Japanese out, Margielyn is a very strong prospect for gold in the women’s street event,” Skateboard Association of the Philippines Inc. president Monty Mendigoria following the practice of the Philippine skateboarding squad on Monday. Mendigoria bared  that with the field reduced to nine entries “the qualifiers on Tuesday will advance to the finals the next day. This has been reduced to a ranking system to determine the order of performance in the next round.” He explained the qualifiers were also important “because this will determine who performs first to last, meaning if our girl gets a highest score tomorrow, then she will be the last to perform and gets to see how the rest fare ahead. “She can then execute tricks and routines that will be superior than her opponents,” he said. Mendigoria said that the Didal was confident of delivering the goods as the sport makes its Asian Games debut, and will also be among the handful disciplines that will officially make their bow in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.   He cited her extensive preparations for this meet, including completing in the World Xtreme Games in Minneapolis where she finished eighth overall out of 12 entries plus two weeks of intensive training for free at the Skateboard Camp at Camp Woodward in Pennsylvania. What sets Didal, 19,  apart, he said, “is the fact that Margielyn has been skateboarding with boys since she was 12 years so she is fearless, sometimes reckless, in competing against girls. May pagka-tomboy ang laro niya.” Besides Didal, also seeing action for the country in the men’s street event preliminaries on Tuesday are Renzo Mak Feliciano and Jeff Gonzales, according to Mendigoria.   .....»»
