Balanced FEU sinks LPU for first time in Filoil Preseason

Far Eastern University rode a huge wave of team effort to drown Lyceum of the Philippines University in an 86-78 decision, Monday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Brandrey Bienes led three other teammates in double-digits with 14 points built on perfect 4-of-4 shooting from deep as the Tamaraws became the first team to put a blemish on the Pirates' record after four games in the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. Wendell Comboy, Alec Stockton, and Xyrus Torres all had 13 points of their own while new floor leader L-Jay Gonzales did it all with eight points, eight assists, and five rebounds. FEU charged to a strong start and built up a 28-13 lead after the opening salvo which they successfully protected in the face of repeated challenges by LPU. In the process, the Tamaraws scored their first win after back-to-back losses in the preseason tournament. For the Pirates, Jaycee Marcelino topped the scoring column with 17 points. Meanwhile, Colegio de San Juan de Letran bounced back with a 79-77 victory versus Emilio Aguinaldo College. Allen Mina topped the scoring column while Larry Muyang posted a 10-marker, 11-rebound double-double as the Knights improved to 4-1. With the loss, the Generals dropped to 1-2.

Slasher Cyril Gonzales stays in NU; two Bullpup bigs headed to NCAA

Nazareth School of National University continues to be a producer of capable collegiate basketball players. The Bullpups - fresh off championships in the UAAP Juniors, NBTC, and Palarong Pambansa - have just produced three players who are being eyed to lend a hand to different Seniors squads. Cyril Gonzales, their starter at guard, is staying in Sampaloc and is now seeing time for the Bulldogs in the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. Gonzales is a fearless slasher standing at 6-feet. He posted per game counts of 8.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 1.6 steals in 21 minutes of play in their championship run in the UAAP Jrs. last year. Meanwhile, two big men who once helped NU slow down Kai Sotto will now help two NCAA teams. Pao Javillonar, a 6-foot-6 enforcer, will now patrol the paint for College of St. Benilde while 6-foot-4 raw prospect Dom Dayrit will now help the rebuild in Emilio Aguinaldo College. Javillonar normed 3.2 points and 3.8 rebounds in 9.8 minutes of play and Dayrit averaged 3.1 markers and 3.8 boards also in 9.8 minutes of play. The three players continue NU's recent history of sending up capable collegiate basketball players to different teams both in the UAAP and the NCAA. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Rookie Fermin shines bright in Adamson s winning start to Filoil Preseason

Adamson University's prized recruits made an immediate impact just as stalwarts Jerrick Ahanmisi and Papi Sarr did their thing in their 89-65 rout of overmatched Emilio Aguinaldo College in the two teams' opener in the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament, Tuesday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Aaron Fermin, a 6-foot-5 big man, opened eyes with 21 points, five rebounds, and two blocks in just 19 minutes of play while fellow rookie AP Manlapaz, a 6-foot-2 forward, contributed 12 markers and two steals of his own. Ahanmisi, for his part, scored 17 points on top of three rebounds, three assists, and three steals while Sarr chimed in 11 markers and seven boards. It was an all-out domination from the Soaring Falcons who used a 50-22 tear in the middle periods to blow out their neighbors in San Marcelino. Joem Sabandal and Joshua Yerro, two other prized recruits, then merged for four points, six rebounds, and three assists as Adamson's new faces wasted no time in introducing themselves. That is nothing but good news for a side which had lost team captain Sean Manganti and court general Koko Pingoy. For the Generals, Marwin Taywan was the lone bright spot with 10 points. Meanwhile, Colegio de San Juan de Letran also got its new era off to a winning start by charging through NCAA rival Jose Rizal University, 78-67. Jerrick Balanza showed the way with 25 points as the Knights gifted new head coach Bonnie Tan with a breakthrough win in just their first game in the tournament.
