Red Cubs sniffing top seed as Mapua, CSB-LSGH get tripped

strong>STANDINGS /strong> br /> Mapua 13-4 br /> San Beda 12-5 br /> CSB-LSGH 11-6 br /> Letran 10-7 br /> San Sebastian 10-7 br /> Arellano 7-10 br /> LPU 7-9 br /> Perpetual 6-10 br /> JRU 6-11 br /> EAC 2-15 For a while there, it looked like San Beda High School was losing its touch in the NCAA 93 Juniors Basketball Tournament. That has all been put to rest as here come the Red Cubs, once again knocking on the door of the top spot after besting archrival Colegio de San Juan de Letran, 63-60, on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Luke Sese top-scored with 13 points, but it was total team effort which fueled San Beda’s ascent to 12-5. Evan Nelle and Ain Obenza were the ones who showed the way in the final frame and had all the answers for the Squires’ charges. The former ended with seven points, five rebounds, and five assists while the latter finished with five markers under his belt. The boys from Taytay started the second round by dropping three games in a row which, in turn, dropped them to as low as fourth-place. With their fifth consecutive victory, however, this one completing an elimination round sweep of their archrivals, they have strengthened their stranglehold on solo second. More than that, they also stand within striking distance of league-leading Mapua University. The Red Robins yet again left a window open for the top spot they’re currently occupying after being at the wrong end of an upset by San Sebastian College-Recoletos, 80-81. Alex Desoyo caught fire in the final frame by scoring 14 of his 25 points to front the Staglets’ comeback from as much as 19 points behind. Baste was down by 16 at the half before flipping the switch and outscoring their opponents, 53-36, in the last two quarters. With the big-time comeback, they entangle themselves for the fourth spot with also 10-7 Letran. San Sebastian ends the eliminations against dangerous University of Perpetual Help (6-10) while the Squires match up with struggling College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills (11-6) On the other hand, now 13-4 Mapua needs to take care of business against already eliminated Arellano High School to avoid any complications regarding the top-seed. Last Thursday, the Junior Blazers were the victims of the biggest upset of the season, downed by lowly Emilio Aguinaldo High School, 77-81. Lester Castillo and Maui Cruz fired 29 and 28 points, respectively, to lift the Brigadiers to only their second win in 17 games. Conversely, the upset was CSB-LSGH’s fourth loss in the last five games. Once the frontrunners in the tournament, they now find themselves at third-place at 11-6 and with Letran and Baste both breathing down their necks. In other results, the Junior Altas frustrated the Braves, 88-81.

Cagulangan teams up with David to give LSGH its first-ever title

Joel Cagulangan has won at least three games for College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills in the NCAA 93 Juniors Basketball Tournament. It was only fitting that he was winning the championship for them as well. Cagulangan’s free throws coupled with Joshua David’s definitive defense energized the Junior Blazers right through now-dethroned champion Mapua University, 75-74, in a thriller of a triumph on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Now, Greenhills will be celebrating the first-ever championship in its school history. “We joined the NCAA in 1998 and for all the players who played since 1998 until today, this is for them,” a beaming head coach Marvin Bienvenida said. Trailing by one with less than a minute remaining, the 5-foot-9 point guard got a rebound and got a foul for his troubles. Sent to the line, he coolly converted both free throws to put his team up by one. At the other end, the Red Robins put the ball in the hands of red-hot Clint Escamis only to see David get two defensive stops on him in the same possession. “Nakukuha naman ng mga ‘to lagi yung bola,” Bienvenida said of his guards. The off-guard, standing at six-feet, was also sent to the line but muffed on both his charities. He made up for it at the other end, however, bothering towering Warren Bonifacio just enough as time was running out on Mapua. The ball ended up in the hands of Mike Enriquez, but his triple try went backrim. And so, CSB-LSGH reached the mountaintop after the steepest of climbs. “After the buzzer sounded, it seemed like I was in a dream. I cannot describe this,” the head coach said. They lost five of the last six games in the elimination round and had to win a knockout bout against resurgent San Sebastian College-Recoletos for the fourth-seed. Once there, they then downed top-seed and twice-to-beat San Beda High School to move onto the Finals. The championship experience of Mapua showed and yet, the Junior Blazers didn’t give up. At the forefront of it all was Cagulangan with 19 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, and four steals while David had 26 markers, six boards, and two assists. Both will be back next season as they go for back-to-back championships. There, Bienvenida is shying away from what would now be new targets on their backs. “Yes, I could say we could be the favorite, pero ‘di naman basta-basta binibigay yun. Papaghirapan namin,” he said. For the Red Robins, Escamis topped the scoring column with 21 points. He will be left behind by all of graduating players Bonifacio, Mike Enriquez, Joaqui Garcia, Will Gozum, and Carl Lacap.

San Beda beats LSGH on penalties to retain Juniors football crown

The San Beda College Red Cubs survived a valiant College of Saint Benilde-La Salle Greenhills effort, beating the Greenies 3-1 on penalties to retain the NCAA Juniors football title, Monday evening at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium.  While San Beda dominated the shots in the first 45 minutes of action, it was CSB who came the closest to scoring, getting the ball into the back of the net but the goal was ruled off side.  The Greenies eventually took control in the second half, with Vin Dela Cruz scoring in the 63rd minute.  Senior Red Cubs striker JR Suba needed only six minutes to respond, as he drained the equalizer in the 69th minute.  Two minutes later, the Greenies would take the lead once more, courtesy of a Kobe Del Rosario conversion.  Again, it was Suba to the rescue for the Red Cubs, pulling the defending champions even in the 73rd.  Neither side would manage a deadlock-breaking conversion and the match headed into extra-time.  In the 109th minute, LSGH would again take the driver's seat as Dela Cruz's brace gave the Taft-based side a chance to extend the finals series.  For the third time in the match, Suba would rise to the occasion as he headed in a 118th minute equalizer to ultimately force a penalty shootout.  LSGH was the first to get on the board in the shootout thanks to a Jethro Borlongan attempt, but that would be the only time they'd get past San Beda keeper Jessie Semblante, who successfully denied all of the Greenies' succeeding penalty attempts.  With the title one conversion away, it was Semblante who stepped up to the spot and calmly beat LSGH keeper Joshua Gatchalian to clinch the championship.  "Hindi parin ako nawalan ng pag-asa," said Suba, talking about being down 3-2 with mere minutes left in the match. "Sabi nga ni coach Aris Caslib, hangga't hindi pinipito ng referee yung final whistle, wag kang susuko, may chance pa din." "Ayun nga, dumating yung chance. Patience lang. Dumating yung goal." continued Suba, who finished with a hattrick in his final match as a Red Cub. Suba was also named the season Most Valuable Player, and the season's Best Striker, with 20 conversions to his name.  San Beda's Semblante was named Best Goal Keeper, while teammate Eldwin Escoro was named Best Defender.  Red Cubs coach Jeff Cuayong was named Coach of the Year.  Other awardees include LSGH's Raphael Santos, who was named Best Midfielder, and University of Perpetual Help, who took home the Fair Play Award.  This is the 17th juniors football title for San Beda and their fourth in the last six seasons.   .....»»

San Beda downs LSGH, moves closer to juniors football title repeat

Defending NCAA juniors football champions San Beda College used an early second-half blitz to come back and defeat CSB-LSGH, 2-1, Friday afternoon at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium. LSGH was getting the better chances early in the match, and came very close to getting a quick 1-0 lead after San Beda committed a foul inside the penalty box. Loyd Soco was tasked to take the Penalty Kick, but missed out on scoring after sending it straight to Red Cubs keeper Jessie Semblante’s mitts. The Greenies ended up getting on the board first anyway, after striker Vin Dela Cruz found the back of the net in the 33rd minute. It was all San Beda in the second half however, as the defending champs turned the match around in a matter of seven minutes. Jimmar Castillo scored the equalizer in the 47th minute, and then doubled up in the 54th minute to give the Red Cubs a 2-1 advantage. The Taft-based side pushed hard to pull even, but couldn’t manage an equalizer of their own as the Red Cubs held on for the win. San Beda finds themselves one game away from back-to-back juniors titles, while LSGH will look to even things up. Match two takes place on Monday, January 15th, at 4:00 PM, also at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium......»»

Seriously, where would LSGH be without Joel Cagulangan?

College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills is back in the Finals of the NCAA Juniors Basketball Tournament. For the first time in four years, the Junior Blazers will have a chance at winning their very first championship. For Inand Fornilos, who posted 16-point, 18-rebound double-double in their conquest of dynastic San Beda High School, Joel Cagulangan was the difference between the two teams – and the difference for the boys from Greenhills throughout the tournament. “Kung wala siya, ewan na lang kung saan kami ngayon. Isa talaga siya sa puso ng team,” he said He then continued, “Pag wala siya, parang magiging imposible. Pag nandun siya, kayang-kaya.” And it wasn’t the first time the five-foot-eight point guard has played big. In the eliminations, he has won for them three games by his lonesome. In Game 1 of the semifinals, against the Red Cubs no less, he had 27 points, six rebounds, and five assists as CSB-LSGH. “Last game, parang natulala na nga lang kami e,” Evan Nelle, his backcourt counterpart, said. Cagulangan was at it again in Game 2, dropping 29 points to go alog with nine assists, nine rebounds, and two steals. “Ang galing, grabe. Ang hirap i-stop. Game plan namin, siya lang din, pero ang galing e,” Nelle said. He then continued, “Contested naman lahat ng shots niya, pero sumu-shoot pa rin.” This, all while playing 52 of the 55 possible minutes in the triple-overtime classic. And for the Junior Blazers’ head coach, this was just the start for their main man. As he put it, “He’s just getting better and better. We haven’t seen the best of him yet.” —- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

La Salle Greenies survive Red Cubs in triple OT

MANILA, Philippines – The La Salle Greenies continue to surprise everybody.

San Beda outworks Letran for a shot at top-seed

Robert Bolick and Javee Mocon let San Beda College continue to be dominant in the NCAA 93 Men’s Basketball Tournament, but it’s the contributions of guys like Franz Abuda and Clint Doliguez who let them be downright scary. That much was evident on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre as Abuda and Doliguez turned the tides in favor of the Red Lions as they upended their archrival Colegio de San Juan de Letran for a 73-68 decision. Abuda and Doliguez only scored six and five points, respectively, but it was their hustle and defense that proved to be the key to the defending champions’ 15th consecutive victory. “Clint and Franz made me look good today,” a more than satisfied head coach Boyet Fernandez said. The Knights took control in the third quarter and still led, 63-61, inside the last five minutes before Bolick willed a layup through the outstretched arms of Jeo Ambohot. “I will not take this game away from Letran. They really needed to win this game to make it to the Final Four, but we also had to win this game to prepare us for our next game,” Fernandez said. That tying basket was then followed up with back-to-back hits off offensive rebounds for Abuda and Doliguez. “Our glue guys really played good defense. It was defense and hustle that won us the game,” their mentor said. With those seven unanswered points, San Beda mounted a 63-63 lead with 2:24 remaining. The cushion would hold for the remainder of the game. In the end, Bolick had 13 points and six assists while Donald Tankoua pounded in 15 markers and eight rebounds of his own. Little-known Calvin Oftana also had much welcome contributions with 13 points, seven in the first quarter, to go along with five rebounds. Along with completing a season sweep of their archrivals, the Red Lions also remained in the running for the top-seed with a 16-1 standing. They will try for that when they wage war against league-leading Lyceum of the Philippines University next Thursday in the same venue. On the other hand, the loss drags down Letran onto a three-way tie for the fourth and final playoff berth along with also 8-9 Arellano University and San Sebastian College-Recoletos. Bong Quinto posted an 18-point, 10-rebound double-double to lead them in the losing effort. That the three-way tie stays until the end of eliminations is a possibility as the Chiefs’ final assignment is up against 10th-running Mapua University, the Knights’ last opponent is ninth-running College of St. Benilde, and the Chiefs still have eighth-running University of Perpetual Help left on their schedule.

Red Cubs move into two-way tie for second spot

strong>STANDINGS /strong> br /> Malayan 12-3 br /> CSB-LSGH 11-5 br /> San Beda 11-5 br /> Letran 9-6 br /> San Sebastian 8-7 br /> Arellano 7-8 br /> LPU 7-8 br /> JRU 6-10 br /> Perpetual 5-10 br /> EAC 1-15 After an untimely three-game slide, here comes San Beda High School with a head full of steam now in the stretch run of the 93rd Season of the NCAA Juniors Basketball Tournament. Evan Nelle stroked the nets and the other Red Cubs just followed suit in their 35-point rout, 91-56, of Emilio Aguinaldo High School on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. A three-game slide to start the second round dragged down the boys from Taytay to as low as fourth-place. Now, however, they have bounced back big-time with four consecutive victories and an 11-5 record – good for joint possession of the second spot with suddenly struggling College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills. Nelle scored eight of his 21 points as San Beda raced to a hot start, 26-4, in the opening period. They would never look back from that point all the way to a momentum-building win ahead of critical contests against fellow playoff hopefuls Colegio de San Juan de Letran and Lyceum of the Philippines University. Sam Abu Hijleh also added a 10-point, 12-rebound double-double and seven other Red Cubs also contributed at least six points. Getting pulled back in the playoff race is San Sebastian College-Recoletos which was upset by also-ran Jose Rizal High School, 76-84. Toby Agustin was a man on a mission and had 26 points, nine rebounds, and three assists as the Light Bombers took down another playoff hopeful. Their list now includes San Beda, Malayan High School of Science, Arellano High School, and now, San Sebastian. That is quite the list for a team that is no longer in contention with a 6-10 record. On the other hand, it was an unwelcome loss for the Staglets who, now at 8-7, take a step back from the top four teams. As such, they need to win their remaining three assignments just to have a shot at a playoff berth. Damie Cuntapay led them in the losing effort with a 13-point, 21-rebound double-double. Their loss dropped the Brigadiers to 1-15.

San Beda remains in hot pursuit of CSB-LSGH for second spot

Both College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills and San Beda High School are still the frontrunners for the twice-to-beat advantage following separate wins on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Pounding on the boards and taking full advantage of their many more shot attempts, the Junior Blazers got the better of Jose Rizal High School, 80-73. Joel Cagulangan, Joshua Marcos, and Mark Sangco each scored 15 points to carry their team back onto the win column now at 11-4. Inand Fornilos proved to be the biggest difference between the two teams, however, and posted a 12-point, 18-rebound double-double. All this, while standing at the forefront of their massive advantage in offensive rebounds, 24-11; second chance points, 17-4; and shot attempts, 89-62. With the bounce back win, CSB-LSGH remains in solo second. Putting more pressure on them are the Red Cubs who mangled University of Perpetual Help, 87-66. The boys from Taytay started strong and never looked back all the way to a third consecutive victory and 10th overall in 15 games. Luke Sese, by his lonesome, outscored all of the Junior Altas in the first quarter alone, 9-2. Behind that 23-8 blitz, San Beda strengthened its stranglehold of the third spot while also staying right behind the second running Junior Blazers. Sese wound up with 12 points while Evan Nelle contributed 16 points, eight assists, three rebounds, and two steals. While the Junior Blazers and the Red Cubs are the frontrunner, 9-6 Colegio de San Juan de Letran and 8-6 San Sebastian College-Recoletos also have a fighting chance for the remaining playoff incentive. Meanwhile, their respective losses dropped the Light Bombers to 5-10 and the Junior Altas to 4-10.

Red Sox fail to clinch AL East after loss to Astros

BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox once again failed to clinch the AL East, losing 3-2 to Alex Bregman and the Houston Astros on Friday night. The magic number for the Red Sox remained at one. Boston leads the New York Yankees by two games — both teams have two games left and they are each assured playoff spots. If Boston and New York wind up even, they will play a one-game tiebreaker Monday at Yankee Stadium for the division crown, with the loser going to the wild-card game. Bregman homered and drove in three runs for Houston, which reached 100 wins for the second time in team history. Charlie Morton (14-7) pitched into the sixth inning, and Ken Giles got three outs for his 34th save. strong>ROCKIES 9, DODGERS 1 /strong> DENVER (AP) — Nolan Arenado hit the first of Colorado's four homers, and Chad Bettis picked up his second win since his return from testicular cancer. The Rockies have two games remaining and hold a two-game lead over Milwaukee for the second NL wild card. Mark Reynolds, Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story also connected for Colorado. Bettis (2-4) allowed one run over seven innings. Los Angeles' Hyun-Jin Ryu (5-9) allowed five runs over two innings. It was his shortest outing this season. strong>BREWERS 5, CARDINALS 3 /strong> ST. LOUIS (AP) — Stephen Vogt homered and drove in three runs, Chase Anderson pitched seven solid innings, and Milwaukee kept its playoff hopes alive. The Brewers entered two games behind the Rockies for the second NL wild card. Milwaukee has won four of its last six games. Anderson (12-4) allowed one run and three hits in his fourth win in his last five starts. Cardinals rookie shortstop Paul DeJong hit his 25th homer in the fourth. John Gant (0-1) allowed four runs in five innings in his second start of the season. strong>TWINS 6, TIGERS 3 /strong> MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Brian Dozier hit a three-run homer in the second inning, leading Minnesota to the victory. Eduardo Escobar also homered and drove in three runs, helping the Twins bail Kyle Gibson out of a 3-0 deficit after an RBI triple by Alex Presley and a two-run home run by Nicholas Castellanos. Gibson was removed after 4 2/3 innings, so Jose Berrios (14-8) was credited with the win after recording four outs in a tune-up relief outing. Matt Belisle notched his ninth save with a perfect ninth inning for the Twins, who will visit New York or Boston on Tuesday in the AL wild-card game. Detroit's Matt Boyd (6-11) allowed five runs in five innings. strong>YANKEES 4, BLUE JAYS 0 /strong> NEW YORK (AP) — Masahiro Tanaka struck out 15 over seven innings, his highest total since coming to the major leagues, and the playoff-bound Yankees won for the fourth time in five games. Tanaka (13-12) retired his first 14 batters before Ezequiel Carerra reached on an infield single up the middle. Aroldis Chapman worked the ninth for his 21st save in 25 chances. Greg Bird had two hits and two RBIs for New York, and Aaron Judge also drove in a run. Toronto right-hander Joe Biagini (3-13) allowed three runs and six hits in five innings. strong>MARLINS 6, BRAVES 5 /strong> MIAMI (AP) — Miami slugger Giancarlo Stanton had two hits, but remained at 59 home runs. Marcell Ozuna drove in three runs for Miami, which trailed 5-0 heading into the sixth inning. Adam Conley (8-8) pitched a scoreless seventh for the win, and Brad Ziegler got two outs for his 10th save. The Marlins scored four times in the seventh. Justin Bour's two-run single gave Miami a 6-5 lead. The Marlins also got run-scoring singles from Ozuna and Stanton off Dan Winkler (0-1). Ozzie Albies and Lane Adams homered for Atlanta. strong>CUBS 5, REDS 4 /strong> CHICAGO (AP) — Ian Happ hit a three-run homer with two outs in the eighth inning, and the Cubs won for the 14th time in 17 games. With a second straight NL Central title in hand and their sights set on another World Series championship, the Cubs held sluggers Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant out of the lineup. Trailing 4-2 in the eighth, Tommy La Stella started the rally with a one-out single against Amir Garrett. Taylor Davis then singled to third off Michael Lorenzen (8-4). After Kyle Schwarber struck out, Happ drove his 24th homer to left. Brian Duensing (1-1) pitched a scoreless eighth. Justin Grimm worked the ninth for his first save in three chances. strong>NATIONALS 6, PIRATES 1 /strong> WASHINGTON (AP) — Stephen Strasburg pitched 7 2/3 shutout innings for Washington, and Ryan Zimmerman homered twice. Strasburg (15-4) gave up two hits, struck out eight and walked two. He is 5-1 with a 0.84 ERA since returning from the disabled list on Aug. 19. Zimmerman hit a two-run homer in the sixth and a solo shot in the eighth for the NL East champions. It was his seventh multihomer game of the season. Pittsburgh's Gerrit Cole (12-12) was charged with three runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings. strong>INDIANS 10, WHITE SOX 1 /strong> CLEVELAND (AP) — Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run double for the AL Central champion Indians, and Jay Bruce and Jose Ramirez drove in two runs apiece. Cleveland maintained its one-game lead over Houston for the best record in the AL with two games remaining. The top seed will play the winner of the wild-card game between the Yankees and Twins in the Division Series. The Indians' 101 victories are the second-most in franchise history and set a record for wins by an AL Central team. Cleveland's Trevor Bauer (17-9) allowed one run over six innings. Cleveland built a 10-0 lead after three innings, aided by six walks from Mike Pelfrey (3-12) and an error by shortstop Tim Anderson. strong>ROYALS 2, DIAMONDBACKS 1 /strong> KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City's Ian Kennedy picked up his first home victory in more than a year. Kennedy (5-13) snapped a franchise record of 18 winless home starts, holding the postseason-bound Diamondbacks to one run in five innings. It was his first Kauffman Stadium victory since Aug. 20, 2016. Jake Lamb hit his 30th homer in the second for Arizona. Zack Greinke (17-7) allowed two runs in four-plus innings in his final tuneup before starting the wild-card game Wednesday in Phoenix against Colorado or Milwaukee. strong>RANGERS 5, ATHLETICS 3 /strong> ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Shin-Soo Choo tied a career high with his 22nd home run, helping Texas end a seven-game skid. Rangers left-hander Martin Perez (13-12) allowed three runs in six-plus innings. The 13 wins are a career high for Perez and the loss guaranteed Oakland would finish last in the AL West. A's catcher Bruce Maxwell took a knee during the national anthem and was booed by a portion of the crowd before and after the song. It was the first time Maxwell has taken a knee on the field in an opposing ballpark. Oakland's Raul Alcantara (1-2) was charged with four runs in 4 1/3 innings. Alex Claudio worked a scoreless ninth for his 11th save. strong>RAYS 7, ORIOLES 0 /strong> ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Evan Longoria and Logan Morrison homered, and Tampa Bay clinched third place in the AL East. Longoria hit a leadoff drive in the fifth against Wade Miley (8-15), marking Longoria's fifth straight 20-homer season and the ninth of his 10-year career. Morrison hit his 38th homer off Chris Tillman in the seventh. Rays starter Jake Odorizzi left his final start of the season after four innings with a sore right knee. Brad Boxberger (4-4) got the win. strong>PHILLIES 6, METS 2 /strong> PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Maikel Franco, Jorge Alfaro and Cesar Hernandez homered, powering Philadelphia to the victory. Earlier in the day, the Phillies (65-95) announced manager Pete Mackanin would not return to the dugout in 2018. Mackanin was given a role as a senior adviser to general manager Matt Klentak. Jose Reyes and Dominic Smith connected for New York, which had won three in a row. Matt Harvey (5-7) allowed four runs and seven hits in four innings. Ben Lively (4-7) pitched six effective innings for Philadelphia. strong>GIANTS 8, PADRES 0 /strong> SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Buster Posey hit three RBI doubles, Brandon Crawford drove in three runs and had three hits, and San Francisco ensured it won't finish with a 100-loss season.

Squires and Staglets still in a dead heat for fourth spot

strong>STANDINGS /strong> br /> Malayan 12-2 br /> CSB-LSGH 10-4 br /> San Beda 9-5 br /> Letran 9-6 br /> San Sebastian 8-6 br /> LPU 7-8 br /> Arellano 6-8 br /> Perpetual 4-9 br /> JRU 5-9 br /> EAC 1-14 One team is in and already has twice-to-beat advantage, two teams are knocking on the door of the other playoff incentive, and four teams still have a shot at the fourth and final playoff berth in the NCAA 93 Juniors Basketball Tournament. Fourth-running Colegio de San Juan de Letran and fifth-running San Sebastian College-Recoletos are still not that far from each other in the playoff race after separate wins on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. The Squires were almost at the wrong end of an upset before digging deep and hacking out an 86-85 overtime victory versus Emilio Aguinaldo College. Neil Tolentino scored 15 points and was backstopped by Enoch Valdez who posted 12 points and nine rebounds. It was the backcourt tandem of Russelle Aniban and Keith Peralta, however, who connived for nine points in the extra period to spark the Squires back into the win column. Standing at 9-6, the Intramuros-based squad remains well within the top four and still within striking distance of the top two. Right behind them are the Staglets who continued their stampede with a 101-91 overtime victory versus Lyceum of the Philippines University. Damie Cuntapay posted monster numbers of 26 points and 19 rebounds as Baste won for the sixth time in a row and for the eighth time in 14 games. The win not only moved San Sebastian forward and closer to the top four, it also dragged down the sixth-running Junior Pirates to 7-8. John Barba led them in the losing effort with 27 points. Yesterday, defending champion Malayan High School of Science re-asserted its mastery over upstart contender College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills, 71-62. Carl Lacap and Joaqui Garcia topped the scoring column with 14 and 13, respectively, but it was the Red Robins’ team effort that fueled their ascent to a still league-leading 12-2. Clint Escamis continued to do it all with 11 points, 14 rebounds, and four assists while twin towers Warren Bonifacio and Will Gozum merged for 14 markers and 17 boards. With the elimination round sweep of their closest competitors thus far in the tournament, the defending champions have now clinched twice-to-beat advantage for the next round. On the other hand, the Junior Blazers suffered their second straight setback and now stand at 10-4. They remain at solo second. Hot on their heels is San Beda High School which exacted revenge on Arellano High School with a resounding rout, 94-65. Luke Sese was the high man with 18 points, but all but one of the 14 Red Cubs sent in contributed at least two points in the scoring column. Now at 9-5, third-running San Beda is breathing down the necks of CSB-LSGH for the only playoff incentive left. The outlook is the opposite for the 6-8 Braves who need to win out in their remaining assignments while also hoping the four teams ahead of them take a stumble. In other results, Jose Rizal High School brought a 35-point beatdown to University of Perpetual Help, 86-51.

Carl Lacap led the way for defending champion Malayan High School of Science to clinch at least a playoff for a semifinals berth Thursday against La Salle-Greenhills, 71-62 in the juniors division of the 93rd NCAA basketball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Lacap scored 14 points while Joaqui Garcia had 13 for the Red Robins, who kept a tight hold of the lead with a 12-2 win-loss record. Clint Escamis finished with a double-double with 11 points and 14 rebounds including four assists for Malayan. The Junior Blazers absorbed their fourth loss in 14 outings. Joel Calungan posted 15 points, Joshua Marcos finished with 14 while Inand Fornillos registered 12 markers and 10 boards in a lost cause for LSGH. Meanwhile, Luke Sese scattered 18 points while Evan Nelle added 14 markers and nine assists in San Beda’s 94-65 rout of Arellano University.

Robins ascend to solo lead as CSB-LSGH is upset by Baste

strong>STANDINGS /strong> br /> Malayan 11-2 br /> CSB-LSGH 10-3 br /> Letran 8-5 br /> San Beda 8-5 br /> San Sebastian 6-6 br /> Arellano 6-7 br /> LPU 6-7 br /> Perpetual 4-8 br /> JRU 4-9 br /> EAC 1-12 Game in and game out, Malayan High School of Science is being challenged in its title defense in the NCAA 93 Juniors Basketball Tournament. On Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, the latest challenge came from their much-improved neighboring rival Colegio de San Juan de Letran. And still, the Red Robins proved to have more than enough for a well-fought 81-76 win against the Squires in overtime. Randy Alcantara’s boys actually found themselves trailing most of the time as Letran showcased all that led it to a six-game winning streak heading into the game. “Good win sa amin kasi kami naman naghahabol from the start e,” the head coach said. Little by little, however, Malayan clawed themselves back into the matchup and by the final frame, the two teams were even. “Credit sa mga bata kasi binigay nila lahat nila,” Alcantara said. With the tally tied after four periods, the two teams needed overtime to settle the score. There, the Robins’ championship experience came through as Will Gozum’s block led to a fastbreak layup for Joaqui Garcia and another defensive stop led to Clint Escamis’ slash-to-score for a 78-74 lead with 36.4 ticks to go. Lakksman Ganapathy kept things interesting for the Squires, but was immediately answered by Gozum’s inside basket. Not long after, Malayan was celebrating its rise to a league-leading 11-2 standing. “Malayo pa ‘to. Ang focus pa rin muna namin, makuha yung twice-to-beat,” Alcantara said. In the end, Gozum had 10 points, 21 rebounds, and seven blocks; Garcia had 11 points and four assists; and Escamis had 19 points, 10 rebounds, and three assists. Topping the scoring column was Carl Lacap who had 21 markers to his name. Those four were more than enough to put down the Squires. Even with the loss, however, the gallant stand should be a source of pride for a squad that was not even mentioned among contenders a season ago. With an 8-5 record, Letran stays at the third spot. The defending champions are now alone atop the leaderboard after College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills found itself at the wrong end of an upset by San Sebastian College-Recoletos. Damie Cuntapay towered above all for 16 points and 14 rebounds to lift the Staglets over the erstwhile pacesetting Junior Blazers, 71-67. A total of four players were in double-digit scoring in San Sebastian’s fourth win in a row and sixth overall in 12 games. They now stand in solo fifth. Inand Fornilos had eight points and 11 rebounds, but neither he nor his fellow frontcourt players were a match for Cuntapay. Joel Cagulangan had 16 points and six assists to show the way for the Junior Blazers who were forced to take a step back onto a 10-3 standing, still good for solo second. Meanwhile, San Beda High School stayed on the right track after avenging its loss to Jose Rizal High School, 70-69. Evan Nelle topped the scoring column with 19 points to make sure the Red Cubs did not suffer another shocker against the Light Bombers. More importantly, the win pushed San Beda into a streak and onto an 8-5 record. Just right behind them, however, and still fighting for a spot in the Final Four are Arellano High School and Lyceum of the Philippines University following separate wins. The Braves whipped Emilio Aguinaldo College, 81-70, on the back of MVP leader Aaron Fermin who yet again posted monster numbers of 25 points, 23 rebounds, and four blocks. It was a much-needed win for Arellano which had been on a three-game slide, but now improves to 6-7. Tying them for the sixth spot are the Junior Pirates who weathered University of Perpetual Help, 74-72. Vincent Cunanan had 20 points, 13 rebounds, and three steals and teamed up with Mac Guadana who had 12 markers, seven boards, and three pilfers. All of Baste, Arellano, and LPU remain within striking distance of two of the last four spots in the Final Four. Their respective losses dropped the Junior Altas to 4-8, the Light Bombers to 4-9, and the Brigadiers to 1-12.

Red Robins, Jr. Blazers still tied for first; San Beda stops skid

The two teams remain in each other’s throats for first-place following separate wins on Thursday and Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. The defending champion Red Robins made quick work of the Brigadiers, 82-68, last Thursday. Team captain Warren Bonifacio showed the way with 19 points, nine rebounds, three assists, and two blocks while Clint Escamis also contributed 12 markers, seven boards, and one pilfer. They were never threated all throughout and waltzed their way onto a 10-2 standing. Tying them there once more are the Junior Blazers who rode Joshua Marcos’ career-best 22 points to go along with 12 rebounds past University of Perpetual Help, 82-69, on Friday. Marcos was backstopped by three other teammates in double-digits en route to a share of first. Court general Joel Cagulangan orchestrated the offensive with a total of 10 points, eight assists, and four rebounds. Their respective losses dropped the Junior Altas to 4-7 and the Brigadiers to 1-10. Meanwhile, San Beda High School finally got back on track following a gritty overtime victory versus San Sebastian College-Recoletos, 85-78. Evan Nelle was the difference, scoring eight points and assisting on five others in his team’s 13-6 extra period. The Red Cubs lost three in a row before the much-needed win. They now stand at 7-5, still solo fourth. Strengthening their stranglehold of third spot, however, is Colegio de San Juan de Letran which grounded Jose Rizal High School, 91-87. Kurt Reyson had 20 points to lead a total of four Squires in double-digits as they improved to 7-4. Their respective losses dropped the Staglets to 5-6 and the Light Bombers to 3-8. Also still in the running is Lyceum of the Philippines University which added to the woes of Arellano High School, 89-82. Mac Guadana topped the scoring column for the Junior Pirates with 19 points.

NCAA Juniors: San Beda Cubs smother Squires; Mapua, Lyceum prevail

This time around, the San Beda Red Cubs got big help underneath from alternate big man Josh Tagala.   Tagala, a 12th grade student, had only eight points, but his 12-rebound output helped the Red Cubs control the boards, and allowed them to coast to a 91-45 smothering of the Letran Squires at the Arena in San Juan.   He and slotman Sam Abu Hijle, who also had eight points, combined for 19 rebounds, and their efforts helped power the Red Cubs to their fourth win in five games in the 93rdNational Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) junior basketball tournament.   “Natutuwa ako. Everyone was sharp.  Pinaghandaan namin itong game,” said Red Cubs coach JB Sison.           The win put the Red Cubs in third spot behind the defending champion Mapua Red Robins and the La Salle Greenhills Junior Blazers.   “For the past three games, di maganda ang rebounding ko. Ito ang focus ko ngayon. Para more possessions for the team,” said Tagala.   Evan Nelle top-scored for a game-high 24 points, probably one of his best performances for the season, while Luke Sese added 15.   The Red Cubs quickly took control of the game with 17-8 advantage even as they took a lot of pain in shutting down one of the Squires prolific players, Enoch Valdez.   With Valdez was held to only three after being scoreless in the first two quarters with Abu Hijle and Germy Mahinay keeping an eye on him.   Nelle hit 11 points in the third period, and with his shots finding their mark for a 53 percent field goal percentage, the Red Cubs went on to enjoy a 60-30 spread at the end of the third.    Mapua-Malayan Science High School 99, EAC 60 Will Gozum led six teammates who scored in double digits as the defending champions Mapua-Malayan High School of Science Red Robins stamped their class on the Emilio Aguinaldo College Brigadiers, 99-60.   Gozum, a transferee from University of the Philippines Integrated School two years ago, made 15 points for the Red Robins, who led by as much as 52 points.   The Red Robins, who had a 55.26 percent shooting clip, went on to pick up win no. 4 and stayed in the solo lead.   Teammates Mike Enriquez, and Jeff Sapinit contributed 14 points while Gerard Sarmiento and team skipper Warren Bonifacio had 12 and 11 points.   “Tulong-tulong lang kaming lahat,” stated Bonifacio.   Bonifacio, Gozum and Sapinit had eight points each in the first period as the Red Robins went on to post a 30-17 edge when the second canto came.    Lyceum Junior Pirates 95, Arellano 85   Vincent Cunanan struck with a career-high 29 points as the Lyceum of the Philippines University fought their way out of a 13-point deficit midway in the game and upset the Arellano Braves 95-85.   John Barba had 16 points, including 10 in the third period.   Marj de Leon scored all of his 10 points in the third as he and Barba stepped in and helped the Junior Pirates turn the tables on the Braves with a 71-67 edge at the end of the third.   Cunanan led a  7-2 run that gave the Pirate an 87-76.   Kobe Camacho showed the way for the Braves with 27 points......»»

Ito ang focus ko ngayon. Para more possessions for the team,” said Tagala.   Evan Nelle top-scored for a game-high 24 points, probably one of his best performances for the season, while Luke Sese added 15.   The Red Cubs quickly took control of the game with 17-8 advantage even as they took a lot of pain in shutting down one of the Squires prolific players, Enoch Valdez.   With Valdez was held to only three after being scoreless in the first two quarters with Abu Hijle and Germy Mahinay keeping an eye on him.   Nelle hit 11 points in the third period, and with his shots finding their mark for a 53 percent field goal percentage, the Red Cubs went on to enjoy a 60-30 spread at the end of the third.    Mapua-Malayan Science High School 99, EAC 60 Will Gozum led six teammates who scored in double digits as the defending champions Mapua-Malayan High School of Science Red Robins stamped their class on the Emilio Aguinaldo College Brigadiers, 99-60.   Gozum, a transferee from University of the Philippines Integrated School two years ago, made 15 points for the Red Robins, who led by as much as 52 points.   The Red Robins, who had a 55.26 percent shooting clip, went on to pick up win no. 4 and stayed in the solo lead.   Teammates Mike Enriquez, and Jeff Sapinit contributed 14 points while Gerard Sarmiento and team skipper Warren Bonifacio had 12 and 11 points.   “Tulong-tulong lang kaming lahat,” stated Bonifacio.   Bonifacio, Gozum and Sapinit had eight points each in the first period as the Red Robins went on to post a 30-17 edge when the second canto came.    Lyceum Junior Pirates 95, Arellano 85   Vincent Cunanan struck with a career-high 29 points as the Lyceum of the Philippines University fought their way out of a 13-point deficit midway in the game and upset the Arellano Braves 95-85.   John Barba had 16 points, including 10 in the third period.   Marj de Leon scored all of his 10 points in the third as he and Barba stepped in and helped the Junior Pirates turn the tables on the Braves with a 71-67 edge at the end of the third.   Cunanan led a  7-2 run that gave the Pirate an 87-76.   Kobe Camacho showed the way for the Braves with 27 points......»»
