Bravo, Clemente shine as Perpetual survives JRU

strong>Games Monday: /strong> (The Arena, San Juan) 8:00 p.m. --- EAC vs Letran (jrs) 9:30 a.m. --- EAC vs. Letran (m) 11:00 a.m. --- EAC vs. Letran (w) 12:30 p.m. --- SSC-R vs. LPU (w) 2:00 p.m. --- SSC-R vs. LPU (m) 3:30 p.m. --- SSc-R vs LPU (jrs)   University of Perpetual Help kept its Final Four bid alive with a 25-23, 25-22, 24-26, 25-15, win over Jose Rizal University Friday in the 92nd NCAA women’s volleyball competition at The Arena in San Juan. Towering middles Coleen Bravo and Lourdes Clemente combined for 33 of the Lady Altas’ 58 kills. Bravo registered her career-high 21 points coming off 18 attacks, two kill blocks and an ace for Perpetual while Clemente had 20 markers. Jamela Suyat added 15 points for the Lady Altas, who survived the upset-conscious Lady Bombers despite committing 40 errors.      But it was Perpetual Help playmaker Necelle Mae Gual that hogged the spotlight in the victory with her eye-popping 73 excellent sets.     The Lady Altas improved their record to 5-3 at fifth to sixth spot tied with idle Lyceum of the Philippines Lady Pirates behind no. 4 San Beda College (6-3), which secured at least a playoff for a semifinals spot. With their backs against the wall, the Las Pinas-based squad survived another win or go home match to remain in contention for the last two semifinals berths. Perpetual will close its elimination round campaign on Wednesday in a do-or-die match with the streaking Arellano University Lady Chiefs (7-1). The unbeaten San Sebastian College (7-0) and Lady Chiefs (7-1) secured the first two Final Four spots while defending champion College of St. Benilde (6-2) and San Beda College are both assured of at least a playoff for a semis seat.   The Lady Bombers closed their season with a 3-6 slate. Shola Alvarez scored 18 points while Rosalie Pepito got 11 for JRU.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

Elite face biggest Philippine Cup test against Ginebra

If Blackwater is truly serious about being a true PBA contender, then passing a crucial test Friday is going to be big for the Elite. Fresh from winning their fifth game last week, their most in one conference and only two short of their entire total last season, the Elite battle Brgy. Ginebra San Miguel with a chance to go for a top 2 finish on the line. With one playoff bonus still up for grabs, a win by Blackwater certainly gives the Ever Bilena franchise an inside track especially since eight teams basically remain in contention to join defending champion San Miguel Beer at the top. Being one of those eight teams, the Gin Kings would like to further their own campaign by notching what would be their first winning streak for the season. Through eight games so far, the reigning Governors' Cup champions have stumbled to an even 4-4 mark but the team is coming off a huge win over rival Meralco back in Iloilo City. Gametime is set at 7:00 p.m. from the Cuneta Astrodome. Also one of the eight teams in contention for a top 2 spot, Rain or Shine takes on a free-falling Meralco Bolts in the first game at 4:15 p.m., looking to bounce back from a sorry loss at the hands of the Beermen. Armed with a 5-3 record, the Elasto Painters are out to make sure they maintain solo second place for at least a day while the Bolts simply want to arrest a six-game slide. The Bolts are currently tied for last place with a woeful 2-7 card. .....»»

Lionesses eye Final Four spot playoff

strong>Games Friday: /strong> (The Arena, San Juan) 9:00 a.m. --- San Beda vs. Mapua (m) 10:30 a.m. --- San Beda vs. Mapua(w) 12:00 noon --- Perpetual vs JRU (w) 1:30 p.m. --- Perpetual vs JRU (m)   San Beda College hunts to secure a playoff for a semifinals berth Friday when the Lionesses take on the listless Mapua Lady Cardinals to close their elimination round campaign in the 92nd NCAA women’s volleyball competition at The Arena in San Juan. Totting a 5-3 win-loss record at fourth to fifth spot tied with idle Lyceum of the Philippines University, San Beda puts its season on the line at the 10:30 a.m. clash with the Cardinals, who remain winless in eight games. A win by the Lionesses will not only give the Mendiola-based squad a playoff for a semifinals slot in case of a tie at 6-3 card but will also put San Beda in a good position to advance in the next round with Perpetual Help and LPU facing tough opponents in their remaining assignments. If San Beda hurdles Mapua and the Lady Altas and Lady Pirates absorbing their fourth loss, the Lionesses will get the last semis spot.   In case the Lionesses lose, SBC will have to wish that LPU drops its last game against San Sebastian College and for Perpetual to at least lose one of its last two remaining games for tie at 5-4 that will also force sa playoff for the last semis seat. Unbeaten SSC-R  (7-1) and Season 90 champion Arellano University secured the first two Final Four berths while defending champion College of St. Benilde (6-2) is assured of at least a semis seat playoff. San Beda is coming off a painful straight sets loss at the hands of the Lady Blazers, 25-12, 17-25, 23-25, 19-25, last week and is looking for a bounce back against the Lady Cardinals, who were swept by Emilio Aguinaldo College 18-25, 13-25, 24-26, last Friday. Meanwhile, the Lady Altas fight for survival when they face upset-conscious Jose Rizal University at 12:00 noon. With a 4-3 card, Perpetual can still make it to the Final Four if the Las Pinas-based squad completes a sweep of its last two games starting with the Lady Bombers. The Lady Altas will end the elims on January 25 against Arellano University. Perpetual survived its first test last week with a sweep of LPU, 25-21, 29-27, 25-23. JRU is out of contention with a 3-5 slate but is looking to play the spoiler’s role. In men’s play, San Beda (6-2) attempts to formally advance in the semis to join CSB (7-1) in a clash against Mapua (5-3) at 9:00 a.m. while defending champion Perpetual (6-1) also seeks a Final Four berth in a faceoff with JRU (1-7) at 1:30 p.m.       --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles    .....»»

The curious case of Willy Wilson's curly hair

After a bout with amoebiasis and other sickness, Willy Wilson successfully returned to the Phoenix lineup Wednesday, providing the energy the Fuel Masters sorely missed in the middle of their Philippine Cup campaign. One thing the team surely didn't miss and would love to have gone immediately is Wilson's hair which went from a nice clean look to a curly. 'Willy Wilson gives us a lot of energy, it's his first game back. I just hope he cuts his hair because I don't like his hair,' head coach Ariel Vanguardia said of his veteran forward who put up a cool 12 points, nine rebounds. two assists, and two steals in 30 minutes against NLEX. 'We've been teasing him about his hair but at least Willy Wilson is back,' Vanguardia added. The Fuel Masters hate Wilson's hair so much that they were willing to pay for his haircut. The 13-year-veteran insisted that he's keeping his hairstyle for now. 'Actually he [coach Ariel] had the team chip in 10 pesos each for a haircut. I kindly declined, I'm trying to see  what's going on with the hair, it's different. I'm turning 37 in a few days so I just wanted to do  a little something different,' Wilson said. Going away from the topic of his hair for a little bit, Wilson is elated to be back for Phoenix in time for the Fuel Masters' playoff push. Although still not 100 percent, the former De La Salle Green Archer insists that he's in a better shape now compared to a couple of weeks ago when he tried to push things that obviously backfired on him and his team. 'I just started hurting myself and I took some time off and now I'm just starting to feel a little bit better. Still not 100 percent but everyday that goes by I'm trying to get more and more back to being myself,' Wilson said. Now back to his hair, Willie says he'll cut it when the time is right. And the right time is when summer rolls around. ' I like it but you know, when summer time comes around, it's going to be too hot so I'm gonna have to cut it. I'm not used to having long hair for too long but I used to do this back in college, I go the whole UAAP season without getting a haircut and come PBL time I have long hair. Definitely before summer I'll be cutting it,' he said. br /> --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

Put the pedal to the metal

With their playoff hopes fading fast, Mahindra is just out to take everything it can out of the last three games in its Philippine Cup schedule. Losing to TNT Wednesday, the Floodbuster seem like a longshot of crashing the quarterfinals of the very first PBA conference this season. However, that doesn't mean Mahindra has taken everything for a loss so far in its All-Filipino campaign. “We’re still going game to game right now. We really have a nothing-to-lose-everything-to gain kind of attitude. It’s either we’re going to tank mode or we lift ourselves up from failure,' top deputy Chris Gavina said. 'I’m a big fan of believing that your failures lead to your success, so we’ll build off of this,' he added. After going on a mini two-game winning streak that put life to their otherwise woeful season, the Floodbuster looked primed for an upset after taking over the KaTropa at halftime, erasing an early 10-point deficit to post a six-point lead. Mahindra just wasn't able to sustain in the second half, leading to yet another disappointing defeat, it's sixth in eight games. 'It was a tough loss. We had the momentum for sure,' forward Alex Mallari said who ended up with a game-high 19 points for the Floodbuster. 'We had the momentum going into the second half and I don't know, we took off on the gas pedal. We Weren't aggressive,' he added. Basically looking for a miracle to make the playoffs at this point, Mahindra need not look far to find recipe for success. 'At this stage for us, it's all about team basketball,' Mallari said. 'Just go back to our last two games where we succeeded. Just be aggressive. If you're open, shoot it. Get some threes up. Keep assists coming. We need a lot of it. And defense as a group -- me, including everybody. So we'll get back on the drawing board and try to get another win,' he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

TNT and Phoenix face separate foes as playoff race heats up

Five teams currently have 4-4 records in the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup. At the end of Wednesday, two teams will break away from that logjam, for better or for worse. TNT and Phoenix face separate foes at the Cuneta Astrodome in hopes of trying to improve their respective playoff campaigns. The struggling KaTropa take the floor first against a confident Mahindra (2-5) squad at 4:15 p.m. with the Floodbuster looking to make in three in a row and solidify their own case for a quarterfinals slot. Since scoring a Christmsa breakthrough, Mahindra has carried on in 2017 and facing a vulnerable TNT squad, a team that has lost two straight, seems like the perfect opportunity for the Floodbuster to keep turning their campaign around. In the second game, Phoenix looks to jump back on the winning track as the Fuel Masters take on NLEX at 7:00 p.m. Despite an impressive outing against TNT, the Road Warriors failed to get anything going after falling short to Globalport, dropping their record to 2-6. The Fuel Masters meanwhile go for a strong finish after suffering a hiccup vs. Rain or Shine. .....»»
