JRU takes flight in NCAA just as Amores does so too in NBTC 24

John Amores of the JRU Light Bombers has been hailed the top high school player in Week 10 the Chooks-to-Go /NBTC 24 NCAA edition. The 6-foot-2 swingman is having a heck of Juniors campaign and his exploits have not gone unnoticed. Last Thursday, his herculean effort of 13 points and 19 rebounds paved the way for a 74-73 victory over title-contenders Mapua . That victory finished off an elimination round upset for JRU over the title conteder Red Robins. Amores, who is on his second and final year with the Light Bombers, is having a breakout season. Last year, he had modest averages of 3.6 points and 3.5 rebounds in just 13.4 minutes of play. Now in, Season 94, he amped up his game and has become one of the reasons why JRU is in a position to enter the Final Four as he is currently fourth in scoring with 18.8 points per outing. After being a constant fixture in NBTC 24’s top 20, including going as high as number two twice, Amores has finally earned the coveted number one ranking. Following Amores are three LSGH Greenies after the defending champions downed the San Sebastian Staglets, 76-65, last Tuesday. Inand Fornilos’ double-double of 24 points and 17 rebounds earned him the second spot while Joshua David came in at third following his 19-point, 9-rebound, 7-assist output. Joel Cagulangan is at fourth as he chipped in with eight points, three rebounds, and six assists in the win. Mapua’s Clint Escamis, who ruled the rankings for the past three weeks, settled for the fifth spot after their upset loss. Here are the complete Week 10 rankings: 1. John Amores (JRU) (6) 2. Inand Fornilos (CSB) (3) 3. Joshua David (CSB) (10) 4. Joel Cagulangan (CSB) (2) 5. Clint Escamis (MU) (1) 6. John Delos Santos (JRU) (9) 7. John Barba (LPU) (8) 8. Dan Arches (MU) (7) 9. Aaron Fermin (AU) (11) 10. Kean Baclaan (SSCR) (15) 11. Mac Guadana (LPU) (12) 12. Jonnel Policarpio (MU) (4) 13. Milo Janao (SSCR) (19) 14. Rom Junsay (AU) (13) 15. RC Calimag (CSB) (5) 16. Ezdel Galoy (UPHSD) (18) 17. Thomas Vasquez (JRU) (N/A) 18. Paolo Hernandez (MU) (N/A) 19. JR Ilustrisimo (EAC) 14) 20. Marwin Dionisio (JRU) (N/A) 21. Penny Estacio (SBU) (N/A) 22. Marj de Leon (LPU) (N/A) 23. Andrei Romenez (CSJL) (N/A) 24. Winderlich Coyoca (SBU) (N/A) This year, there will be three separate editions of the NBTC 24 – one for the NCAA, one for the UAAP, and one for the CESAFI – to accommodate the Juniors calendar for the whole year. After all three editions have been completed, a final list composing the top 24 players nationwide will then be chosen to participate in the annual NBTC All-Star Game in March......»»

Player of the Week Tankoua put San Beda on his shoulders vs Letran

In what could be his final San Beda-Letran rivalry game, Donald Tankoua made sure that he and the Red Lions would come out on top. Last Tuesday, San Beda held an imposing 22-point lead, 67-45, on archrival Letran with 6:19 left in the game. The Red Lions forgot one thing, however, and let their guards down and saw the Knights storm back with a 19-0 blast. "If we lost this game, I should probably blame myself for that because I gave everybody a chance to play and the other guys who came in just simply didn’t want to really step up," lamented head coach Boyet Fernandez. "They thought it was already a won game for us." With Robert Bolick fouling out with less than a minute left, San Beda needed someone it could lean on to stop the bleeding. It was Tankoua who heeded the call, knocking down a clutch basket that eventually gave the Red Lions a 74-68 win. Because of his herculean effort that saw him finish with 19 points and nine rebounds, the 6-foot-6 Cameroonian was hailed as the Chooks-to-Go/NCAA Press Corps Player of the Week. Though getting the victory, last season's Finals MVP hopes that this serves as a wake up call for his teammates that they could never sleep on anyone the rest of the way. "What happened happened and I think that we should realize that we really have to work hard in every game," the 23-year-old big man said. Tankoua bested Lyceum's Jaycee Marcelino, Mapua's Laurenz Victoria, and San Sebastian's Michael Calisaan for the weekly citation handed out by print and online sportswriters covering the beat......»»

Ahanmisi is hands down Player of the Week after shooting down Ateneo

An opening ceremony as grand as the one the 81st Season of the UAAP had needed an athletic endeavor to match the grandeur - and luckily, there was one hooper who delivered. After Filipino hearthrob James Reid, K-Pop star Minzy, and NBA champion and MVP Steph Curry opened the weekend, Adamson's Jerrick Ahanmisi gladly closed it. From highlight plays to clutch buckets, Ahanmisi had it all as he led the Soaring Falcons to a 74-70 shocker over defending champion Ateneo to be hailed as the season's first Chooks-to-Go/UAAP Press Corps Player of the Week. The Filipino-Nigerian edged out UP’s Juan Gomez de Liaño, National U's Dave Ildefonso, and FEU’s Arvin Tolentino for the weekly plum handed by scribes from print and online covering the beat. Without a doubt, Adamson wouldn’t have pulled off the upset if not for the efforts of Ahanmisi who put up 23 points, on 8-of-17 shooting, while grabbing four rebounds. The third-year swingman's offensive production was the highest for the opening weekend and included a mesmerizing buzzer-beating halfcourt shot that gave Adamson a 40-39 lead heading into the halftime break. His highlights, however, weren’t just for the early parts of the game as he had his hand in Adamson’s crunch time sets. With the game tied, Ahanmisi was given the isolation play off of head coach Franz Pumaren’s timeout and delivered with a clutch layup that gave his team a 70-68 lead with 1:09 left to play. Not long after, they finished the job in their first conquest of the Blue Eagles since 2016......»»
