Pirates put on cruise control vs Altas en route to solo second in NCAA 95

Lyceum of the Philippines University sailed to sole possession of the second spot in the NCAA 95 Men’s Basketball Tournament after outclassing University of Perpetual Help, 89-74, Thursday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Reymar Caduyac masterfully orchestrated the Pirates all-out offensive that eventually ended as their eight win in 11 games. Caduyac was at the controls as they went on a 11-0 tear that widened a four-point gap, 57-53, late in the third period to a 68-53 edge early in the final frame. "Reymar is the barometer of our team. Isa siya sa taga-tame sa speed namin," head coach Topex Robinson said of his so-called barometer who wound up with 11 points, nine assists, six rebounds, and two steals. Marcelino twins Jaycee and Jayvee as well as Mike Nzeusseu flanked him, as always, and they only built on their momentum in with a 17-5 run for an 85-65 lead late in the game. In the end, JCM had 21 points, eight rebounds, and two assists while Nzeusseu also had his own 21 markers, five boards, and two dimes. JVM chipped in 10 points, four rebounds, and three assists as well to help LPU yet again nudge ahead from the thick of things in the standings. On the other hand, the Altas suffered their second straight setback and seventh overall in 10 games. Tonton Peralta topped the scoring column for them in this one with 20 points while Ben Adamos and Jielo Razon chimed in 15 and 12 markers, respectively.

Red Cubs survive Jr. Pirates to stay as top team in NCAA 95

STANDINGS San Beda 7-1 Arellano 5-2 LPU 5-3 CSB-LSGH 5-3 JRU 4-4 Letran 4-5 Perpetual 4-5 Mapua 3-5 San Sebastian 2-5 EAC 1-7 San Beda High School had to go deep into its bag of tricks to be able to put away very game Lyceum of the Philippines University, 99-97, in overtime, Tuesday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Little-known Dom Cabanero's midrange jumper with under 40 ticks to go proved to be the difference between the two teams fighting over the top spot in the NCAA 95 Juniors Basketball Tournament. "Talagang fighter talaga yang batang yan. Buti, matapang talaga yung bata," a beaming head coach Manu Inigo said post-game. Cabanero would not have had that chance, however, if not for Tony Ynot and Justine Sanchez who connived in the last three minutes of the extra period to overturn a three-point deficit and tie the tally at 97-all. There was still time for the Jr. Pirates to make something happen, but both Mac Guadana and John Barba were well-defended and muffed on their inside baskets. In the end, Cabanero had eight points to his name while Sanchez and Yukien Andrada both posted 19 markers and nine rebounds. Rhayyan Amsali also just missed out on a triple-double with 18 points, 11 assists, nine rebounds, and two steals. Showing character when it mattered most, the Red Cubs retained solo first in the standings now at 7-1. "Yung LPU, gusto rin talaga manalo kasi pagtinalo nila kami, no. 1 sila so sinabi talaga namin sa players, dapat ready kami. Alam ko nga, talo na, pero buti na lang, binigay pa rin sa amin," coach Manu said. The pleasant surprise of heroics from Cabanero spoiled a big-time 31-point outing by Guadana to go along with seven rebounds, three assists, and three steals. Barba and Jae Omandac posted their own double-doubles with the former finishing with 22 points and 11 rebounds and the latter ending with 21 markers and 10 boards. All of those still weren't enough, however, as LPU sank to 5-3. Meanwhile, both Colegio de San Juan de Letran and University of Perpetual Help got their campaigns back on track with victories versus separate foes. First, the Squires overwhelmed San Sebastian College-Recoletos with their balanced attack for a 72-64 decision. Lenard Santiago and Joshua Ramirez were the only ones in double-digit scoring with 14 and 13 points, respectively, but Shawn Umali, Andrei Romenez, CJ Saure, and Stacey Tibayan each also added seven markers for the blue and red which has now won four of its last six following a 0-3 start to the season. Also standing at 4-5 are the Jr. Altas who braved through a late rally by Emilio Aguinaldo College for a well-earned 71-70 win. Perps was in control for majority of the matchup until the Brigadiers battled back to even notch a one-point lead inside the final minute. Emman Galman, however, would take matters into his own hands and hit a floater over the outstretched arms of two defenders for what proved to be the game-winner. That was the biggest make of his total of 16 points on top of seven rebounds and three assists while rookie John Escalante chippined in a career-best 21 markers. With their respective losses, the Staglets fell to 2-6 and the Brigadiers fell to 1-7 BOX SCORES FIRST GAME LETRAN 72 - Santiago 14, Ramirez 13, Argente 11, Umali 7, Romenez 7, Saure 7, Tibayan 7, Tolentino 2, Cauguiran 2, Flauta 1, Omega 1, Lim 0, Cabal 0, Miranda 0, Delas Alas 0 SAN SEBASTIAN 64 - Janao 14, Darbin 14, Are 10, Concha 8, Perez 6, Una 4, Balo 4, Dailo 3, Gomez 1, Bulasa 0, Lustina 0, Brizo 0 QUARTER SCORES: 22-15, 38-29, 54-44, 72-64 SECOND GAME PERPETUAL 71 - Escalante 21, Galman 16, Kawamura 10, Orgo 8, Cuevas 7, Gelsano 6, Angeles 2, Nunez 1, Dela Cruz 0, Balazuela 0 EAC 70 - Balowa 22, Ilustrisimo 17, Cabuhat 11, Dandoy 8, Sanosa 6, Calipco 4, Macaraya 2, Sollestre 0, Rodrin 0, Mejia 0, Baruelo 0, Reyes 0 QUARTER SCORES: 16-7, 34-25, 53-48, 71-70 THIRD GAME SAN BEDA 99 - Sanchez 19, Andrada 19, Amsali 18, Ynot 16, Cabanero 8, Pascual 6, Llarena 3, Delfino 3, Oftana 3, Nicdao 2, Pelipel 2, Valencia 0, Alao 0, Alcantara 0, Peregrina 0.

PVL: CSB, Ateneo out to secure last semis seats

College of St. Benilde and Ateneo de Manila University try to clinch the last two remaining Final Four seats on Sunday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Lady Blazers battle winless TIP in Group B at 10:00 a.m. while the Lady Eagles take on also-ran University of Perpetual Help at 12:00 noon in their Group A encounter. All games are available on iWant and via livestream. Adamson University and University of Sto. Tomas are through to the semifinals after completing a five-game sweep of Group A and Group B, respectively. CSB sports a 3-1 win-loss record behind the Tigresses and is coming of a straight sets demolition of NCAA champion Arellano University last week. The Lady Blazers are tipped to be at the advantage in terms of firepower against the Lady Engineers, who are listless in four games, behind a solid crew of Klarisa Abriam, Gayle Pascual, Michelle Gamit and Mycah Go. Meanwhile, the Lady Eagles are raring to rebound from a stinging four-set loss to Adamson last week that snapped their three-game winning streak. Ateneo is hard-pressed to win over the upset-seeking Lady Altas to avoid the complication of playing San Beda University (3-2) in a playoff for the last semis seat. Expected to make her return is Faith Nisperos, who skipped the Lady Eagles' last game because of a viral infection. Perpetual is on a three-game slide and holds a 1-3 card. Meanwhile, Far Eastern University (2-2) and Lyceum of the Philippines University (1-3) clash at 8:00 a.m. in the other Group B action. The Lady Tams can force a playoff for the last semis spot if FEU defeats the Lady Pirates and CSB loses to TIP.     ---      Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Lady Eagles eye second win

Ateneo de Manila University guns for its second straight win when the Lady Eagles take on San Sebastian College in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan on Saturday. Coming off a win to start their campaign in Group A, the Lady Eagles are looking to keep its hold of the lead and add Lady Stags to their list of victims in their 10:00 a.m. affair and will be available via iWant and livestream. Rookie Faith Nisperos introduced herself last week as she led the reigning UAAP champion Ateneo to a 25-16, 22-25, 25-13, 25-20, win over Letran. Nisperos will again anchor the Lady Eagles charge with Vannie Gandler, Erika Raagas, Jules Samonte and setter Jaja Maraguinot while veteran Ponggay Gaston is expected to make her debut after skipping last week’s game after feeling under the weather. The Lady Stags, on the other hand, want to rebound from a 24-25, 22-25, 25-2, 17-25, loss to University of Perpetual Help last Sunday. Meanwhile, the Adamson University Falcons and Lady Altas meet at 12:00 noon with both teams putting their unblemished records at stake in the other Group A clash. Rookie Lucille Almonte teamed up with Ceasa Pinar and sophomore Trisha Genesis on offense to power the Lady Falcons to a 25-18, 25-22, 25-16, sweep of San Beda University last week.   In Group B, NCAA champion Arellano University squares off with Lyceum of the Philippines University at 8:00 a.m. The Lady Chiefs defeated TIP, 25-12, 25-7, 25-13, to begin their campaign while the Lady Pirates absorbed a 18-25, 13-25, 21-25, beating at the hands of University of Sto. Tomas last week.   ---       Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Jr. Pirates scare off Braves to seize solo second in NCAA 95

STANDINGS San Beda 7-1 LPU 6-3 CSB-LSGH 5-3 Arellano 5-3 JRU 4-4 Letran 4-5 Perpetual 4-5 Mapua 3-5 San Sebastian 2-5 EAC 1-7 John Barba and Mac Guadana were not letting Lyceum of the Philippines University get denied a shot at school history in the NCAA 95 Juniors Basketball Tournament and propelled the Jr. Pirates right through Arellano High School, 81-64, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Guadana remained a force with 16 points, seven assists, four rebounds, and two steals while Barba remained on the rise with 19 markers, five boards, and two dimes. Those two remained the fuel for the Jr. Pirates' drive back into the win column now at 6-3. More importantly, those two allowed the Cavite-based squad to register its best first round finish in school history. "Masaya kami kasi first time lang sa history ng Lyceum na second kami sa dulo ng first round," a more than satisfied head coach JC Docto said post-game. Impact rookie Gyle Montano and returning forward Matthew Ragasa also provided a big boost off the bench with the former finishing with 12 points and four rebounds and the latter ending with 10 markers and seven boards. Thanks to that total team effort, LPU wasted no time in moving forward following a close loss to traditional powerhouse San Beda High School last Tuesday. Still, coach JC and his wards know full well they haven't won anything yet. As he put it, "Swak pa rin naman sa goal namin. Ang goal namin, top 1 o top 2 kasi mga nakaraang season, goal namin top 4 tas lagi kaming nabitin." He then continued, "So kailangan pa namin mag-work hard lalo." For the Braves, Adrian Rellama fronted the effort with 13 points, eight rebounds, and four assists while Chris Recto also added 11 markers and six boards. BOX SCORES LPU 81 - Barba 19, Guadana 16, Montano 12, Ragasa 10, Garing 8, Omandac 7, Caduyac 3, Garro 3, Panganiban 3, Dumon 0, Gamlanga 0, Caringal 0, Santos 0, Dejelo 0, Gudmalin 0.

NCAA 95: Nzeusseu, JVM save day as LPU shoos away Perpetual

Jayson David's assist, Mike Nzeusseu's basket, and Jayvee Marcelino's block all worked wonders as Lyceum of the Philippines University fought off motivated home team University of Perpetual Help, 87-85, in a thrilling tiff, Thursday at the latter's school gym in Las Pinas. The Pirates needed each and every one of those three plays to put a stop to the Altas furious fightback while also powering through to their fourth win in a row and fifth overall in six games in the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament. "Jayson could have easily taken the shot and been the hero, but that's what's special about this team - everybody's just trying to make everybody look good," a beaming head coach Topex Robinson said post-game. The visitors actually looked like they were on their way to convincing victory, up by 13 at the end of three. Boosted by its home crowd, however, Perps got going in the final frame as Jeff Egan energized it into tying the tally at 85-all with two minutes remaining. "We have to give credit to Perps for showing school pride with the way they played. At the end of the day, it was a really nice game," coach Topex said. The two teams then traded defensive stops until, with under 10 ticks to go, Jaycee Marcelino tossed the ball to David in the baseline who then found Nzeusseu down low. The Cameroonian powerhouse then willed what proved to be the game-winner through Ben Adamos. No panic. Just automatic.

Policarpio, Galang team up as Red Robins finally take flight in NCAA 95

STANDINGS San Beda 4-0 Arellano 4-1 CSB-LSGH 2-1 JRU 4-2 LPU 3-2 San Sebastian 2-2 Perpetual 2-3 Letran 2-4 Mapua 1-4 EAC 0-5 At long last, Mapua High School has put it all together in the NCAA 95 Juniors Basketball Tournament, battling back from a 20-point deficit and busting out for a 92-90 come-from-behind triumph over Colegio de San Juan de Letran, Tuesday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Rookie guard Megan Galang came up clutch, firing half of his 16 points in the last five minutes at to boost the Red Robins to their first win after five tries in their title defense. It was Galang who hit the go-ahead jumper from the baseline that put his team on top, 91-90, with 18.4 ticks to go. The defending champions then forced a miss from CJ Saure before their young playmaker was sent to the line where he muffed on the first and made good on the second. The Squires called time for the last chance to win it, but both Andrei Romenez and Joshua Ramirez failed to convert as time died down. When the final buzzer sounded, Mapua was celebrating its breakthrough win in a season that has, thus far, witnessed it working through an adjustment a coaching change as well as absences from key cogs such as Jonnel Policarpio and Anthony Fransman. "Sobrang saya. Feeing ko, nag-champion kami," first-year head coach Yong Garcia said post-game. Now in his second game back from dealing with personal problems, Policarpio yet again proved to be the missing piece for the Red Robins, almost tallying a triple-double with 19 points, 15 rebounds, nine assists, and three blocks. Fransman then had seven points and 13 rebounds while Hector Buenaflor, another long-limbed forward, top-scored with 20 markers and four boards. The defending champions needed all of those to overcome a horrible first half which saw them falling behind by as much as 20, 15-35. "Sinabi ko lang sa kanila na ibigay yung best nila, i-enjoy yung game, pero at the same time, mag-stick sa system namin," coach Yong said, talking about their halftime adjustments. For Letran, Saure was at the head of the scoring column with 21 points on top of 10 rebounds and four assists while Shawn Argente and Romenez chupped in 20 and 17 markers, respectively. Meanwhile, Arellano High School maintained solo second following a decisive 78-70 decision against suddenly struggling University of Perpetual Help. Danren Nepomuceno showed the Braves the way to a fourth consecutive victory after a season-opening defeat with 23 points and four rebounds while Felix Villarante also added 11 markers and four boards. On the other hand, the Jr. Altas lost for the third time in a row after back-to-back wins. Yuki Kawamura topped the scoring column for them with 17 points while Emman Galman had 14 markers, seven rebounds, and three assists of his own.

NCAA 95: Squires take down formerly undefeated Jr. Altas

STANDINGS San Beda 3-0 LPU 2-0 Perpetual 2-1 JRU 2-1 Arellano 1-1 San Sebastian 1-1 CSB-LSGH 1-1 Letran 1-3 Mapua 0-2 EAC 0-3 Colegio de San Juan de Letran has, at long last, barged into the win column in the NCAA 95 Juniors Basketball Tournament. Not only that, the Squires did it while also sending a statement, toppling erstwhile unbeaten University of Perpetual Help, 70-52, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Gilas Pilipinas Youth forward Joshua Ramirez turned in his best game in blue and red with a 26-point, 10-rebound double-double on top of four assists while CJ Saure also added 18 markers and five boards of his own for their breakthrough win after four games. Letran took control right from tip-off and after a tight first quarter, dominated the middle periods, 38-20. It didn't hurt them either that the Jr. Altas' super scorer Emman Galman was attending to a personal matter and missed his first game of the tournament. Still, that didn't change the fact that the Squires outworked their opponents with 86 attempts from the field as compared to the other side's 65. For Perps, Shawn Orgo topped the scoring column in place of Galman with 14 points. Unable to get into their groove, however, they suffered their first setback after back-to-back wins over defending champion Mapua High School and last year's runner-up College of St. Benilde-La Salle Green Hills. BOX SCORES LETRAN 70 - Ramirez 26, Saure 18, Argente 8, Tibayan 7, Umali 4, Santiago 4, Romenez 3, Miranda 0, Cauguiran 0, Cabal 0, Omega 0, Delas Alas 0, Flauta 0 PERPETUAL 52 - Orgo 14, Escalante 10, Berwite 6, Manuel 6, Galoy 4, Nunez 4, Gelsano 4, Belazuela 2, Cuevas 2, Dela Cruz 0, Kawamura 0, Angeles 0, Ignacio 0, Banaticla 0 QUARTER SCORES: 15-10, 29-15, 53-40, 70-52 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

He then continued, “Napakalaking bagay nito kasi napatunayan na nila sa sarili nilang kaya nila.” At 2-0, Perpetual stands on level ground with San Beda High School and Lyceum of the Philippines University, but their back-to-back wins are the most impressive thus far by virtue of having come at the expense of last season’s top two teams.
