New recruits spark Navotas latest MPBL win; Makati back on track

Navotas proved that it has made the right move in acquiring players in the ongoing trading and drafting of players in the free agent market as last Wednesday, the new recruits showed they could fit well with their new squad. Veteran point guard Jai Reyes scored 18 points while hardworking Marlon Gomez came away with a double-double effort and the newest Clutch towed their team 90-83 victory over the Parañaque Patriots at the Angeles University Foundation Gymnasium. Picked up in a trade with Caloocan for Monbert Arong, Reyes didn't have much difficulty fitting in a team that also includes Ron Dennison, Matt Salem, and Kris Porter, his teammates in the PBA D-League. "Hindi mahirap yung transition," Reyes said. "Kasi naglalaro rin dito sa Navotas yung mga teammates ko sa D-League, plus I have known coach Ritchie Ticzon almost all my life."    The inclusion of Reyes gave the Clutch the veteran presence they needed in arresting back-to-back setbacks. Navotas improved its win-loss mark to 5-6 while dealing Parañaque its sixth loss in 12 games. While Reyes was a welcome addition in the backcourt, Gomez, a do-it-all big man acquired by Navotas in exchange for Levi Hernandez, provided the intangibles and additional inside presence for the Clutch. His double-double effort of 15 points and 14 rebounds was testament enough proof at how solid contributor he is. "Marlon is here to stay for us. He's the big man that we need. Siguro, ang only reason for us to release him is if he's moving up to the PBA," added Ticzon.     Makati edged home team Pampanga, 69-67, in the second game. Jeckster Apinan led the way with 15 points, while Cedric Ablaza contributed 13. Ex-pro Rudy Lingganay and John Rey Villanueva added 12 apiece for the Skyscrapers, who improved their win-loss record to 7-4 and atoned from their previous setback against Cebu.  .....»»

NCAA: Robert Bolick pays it forward by mentoring James Canlas

Robert Bolick, the undisputed leader of San Beda University at present, has nothing but good words for their promising rookie. “We all know James is gonna be the next guy. I always challenge him because he has a lot of potential,” he said about James Canlas, the Red Lions’ Filipino-Canadian swingman who made noise with 18 points and five rebounds in their takedown of Lyceum of the Philippines University on Thursday For the graduating guard, Canlas has all the tools to be a star for the Mendiola-based squad – and not only that, in all of the NCAA. “He’s already a good player. Wala akong problema e kasi take charge din siya,” he shared. He then continued, “I see good potential kaya I always challenge him because gagaling siya dun.” So much so that Bolick, a contender to be the top pick in the looming 2018 PBA Draft, is actually jealous of the first-year player. “I’m really jealous of him. First year ko, ‘di ako nakakalaro nang ganyan e. My first two years, ‘di ko na-experience yung paano mag-step-by-step na mag-improve,” he said. Of course, the ever-playful King Lion is just joshing around – yet again narrating his colorful origin story of when he was still in De La Salle University and, in his own words, was a bench player and played behind the likes of LA Revilla, Thomas Torres, Oda Tampus, and Kib Montalbo. Turning serious, he said he feels it is his duty to make sure Canlas fulfils his destiny. “Nakikita ko kasi dati sa La Salle, sina Vosotros, tinutulungan nila ako so I think that’s my responsibility rin ngayon sa kanya,” he said. Indeed, while he didn’t have that much playing time as a Green Archer, Bolick still learned a lot from veterans such as Revilla and Almond Vosotros. That is exactly what he wants to do for Canlas – once called by head coach Boyet Fernandez as San Beda’s future. And so, now he is playing in his last few games in the collegiate ranks, San Beda’s current star is already making sure his school will remain a contender. “Hopefully, next year, our school is gonna be in good hands with him,” he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Pasaol on MVP chances in UAAP 81: Gusto ko lang manalo kami

Alvin Pasaol is Bright Akhuetie’s closest competitor in the MVP race after the first round of the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament. With averages of 23.7 points, 10.1 rebounds, 1.6 steals, University of the East’s main man has already accumulated 71.57 Statistical Points (SPs) – just around five points away from pacesetter Akhuetie. This, even though he doesn’t have the benefit of that much win bonus as the Red Warriors only have one win to show after eight games. For Pasaol himself, however, the MVP is far from his mind. “Wala sa akin yun. Gusto ko lang manalo kami,” he told reporters after their latest loss on Wednesday. And for them to do that, the third-year forward knows full well he needs to keep doing what he’s doing – and much more. “Mas maganda yung leader ka in action kaysa lip service lang yung ginagawa mo,” he said. Of course, Pasaol also knows full well that he cannot be a one-man show. “Sinasabi ko sa kanila na maglaro sila nang mabuti, kaming lahat, maglaro lang nang mabuti. Nandito lang ako sa likod nila,” he shared. He then continued, “Kung kailangan nila ako, nandito lang ako.” And even though they find themselves at the bottom of the standings at the start of the second round, last year’s Mythical selection still has full faith they have a shot at the playoffs. As he put it, “Kaya pa namin. Push pa namin ang sarili namin na kailangan naming gumawa.” He then continued, “Gusto naming yung standing namin last season, lamangan pa namin.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
