UAAP: FEU a thorn on the side of Ateneo anew with big-time win

In the span of three days, Far Eastern University has taken down the top two teams in the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament. Drawing contributions from up and down the roster, the Tamaraws stopped erstwhile streaking Ateneo de Manila University dead in its tracks via a convincing 63-60 victory on Wednesday at the MOA Arena. The Blue Eagles were in complete command in the first half only to see FEU go on a 17-7 stampede to tie the tally entering the final frame. “We had a bad start. Against Ateneo, hindi pwede yun kaya hindi nga namin alam kung paano namin nagawa ‘to,” head coach Olsen Racela told reporters post-game. There, the two teams were still going at it and Angelo Kouame pulled the defending champions to just 60-63 with 21.2 ticks to go on the clock. After a defensive stop at the other end, they even had a shot to tie the game. Adrian Wong was not able to find an open man, however, and was forced to put up a contester triple that missed the mark. Not long after, the Tamaraws were celebrating their second straight triumph over a title contender. Just last Sunday, they gave Adamson University its first taste of defeat. Hubert Cani was the only player in double-digits with 12 points to go along with six assists and five rebounds. He definitely wasn’t alone, however, as five players also contributed either nine or eight points. “I just want to give credit to our players. Sinunod nila yung game plan,” coach Olsen said. With top gun Arvin Tolentino serving a one-game suspension, veteran Richard Escoto and youngster Brandrey Bienes stepped up big-time by merging for 12 points and eight rebounds. With the win, FEU now stands in joint second in the standings at the end of the first round with also 5-2 Ateneo. Last season, FEU took Ateneo to the limit when the two teams met in the semifinals. The Blue Eagles also had only one player in double-digit scoring in Angelo Kouame who posted a 16-point, 12-rebound double-double to go along with four blocks. Thirdy Ravena struggled with just eight points, four assists, and two steals before fouling out with three minutes remaining.

Cojuangco, Vargas battle anew for POC presidency

The battle for the Philippine Olympic Committee presidency continues after incumbent leader Jose “Peping” Cojuangco Jr. and Ricky Vargas of Association of Boxing Alliance of the Philippines filed their certificates of candidacy Wednesday. Both parties submitted their certificates of candidacy at the POC office inside the Philsports Complex in Pasig City where an election committee headed by Frank Elizalde will review their eligibility to run in the scheduled election on Friday. Cycling federation president and Tagaytay City representative Abraham ‘Bambol’ Tolentino and table tennis head Ting Ledesma also filed their COCs. The 82-year-old former Tarlac representative Cojuangco won his fourth term as president unopposed during the November 2016 POC election after Vargas was disqualified to run after allegedly failing to meet the qualifications of being active members of the POC general assembly. Tolentino, who ran as POC chairman during the poll two years ago, was also disqualified for the same reason. Vargas, whose attempt for a temporary restraining order on the 2016 poll was denied by the Pasig Regional Trial Court, won an election case his camp filed on the same court December last year.   According to the court decision, the ‘elections of POC last Nov. 25, 2016 for Chairman and President is null and void” and ordered a reelection. An extraordinary POC general assembly was called Monday regarding the election with Vargas again fearing disqualification.   The election will be held 12:00 noon at Wack Wack Golf and Country Club......»»

Coach Egay happy that Stags wanna be like Mike (Calisaan)

Head coach Egay Macaraya has long stated that San Sebastian College-Recoletos should aspire to be a lot like Michael Calisaan. Of course, it’s pretty much a tall task to put up their main man’s per game counts of 16.4 points in 42.7 percent shooting on top of 8.7 rebounds. What Macaraya wants to see from all the other Golden Stags, however, is the non-stop effort Calisaan gives game in and game out. “Ang gusto ko magbago sa team na yung buong team, maging Michael Calisaan. Sa nakikita ko, Michael is just doing his job,” he said. He then continued, “Harworker siya and he goes hard all the time.” This, even though there are people who believe he needs to do away with one aspect of his game. After Baste’s loss to San Beda College two months ago, the latter’s head coach Boyet Fernandez reminded the former’s fourth-year forward that he needs to play “physical lang, wag dirty.” Then, the Red Lions’ mentor said that Calisaan played with much extra-curricular activity. Defending his prized ward, Macaraya said that Calisaan is not a “dirty player” and is “just a victim” of questionable calls. After that time of heightened tension, the two teams turned their attention to different things. Now they are all set to collide in a do-or-die game for the remaining Finals berth, however, Calisaan, Macaraya, and the San Sebastian will cross paths anew with Fernandez and San Beda. Again, the Golden Stags’ mentor made it clear that their main man plays the game right. “Para sa akin, that issue is closed already kasi ‘di na naman nag-respond si Boyet,” he said, referring to their exchange of words. He then continued, “He should also understand kasi player din siya e. he should know about hard work and (being) a fighter.” Macaraya was talking about how Fernandez was once a scrappy point guard back when he was playing in the PBA – much like how Calisaan is now a scrappy forward in the NCAA. “It’s not about dirty. Sometimes, (things happen) because that’s part of basketball, when Michael was hit ng elbow (during a previous game), anong sinabi ko kay Michael,” he shared. He then continued, “Sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Tanggapin mo yan. Wag kang masira.’” The Baste head coach then went on to say how his team leader only heeded his advice. Now, Calisaan and his team are one win away from an unlikely trip to the Finals. “Para sa akin po, maglalaro lang po ako. Kung ano po yung masasabi nila sa akin, tatanggapin ko naman po,” he shared. He then continued, “Kung mali po sa kanila, wala akong magagawa, pero para sa akin po, ginagawa ko lang yung trabaho ko.” Indeed, that non-stop effort is what Macaraya wants to see – and is already seeing, actually – from all his boys. “I guess, all my players right now, sinasabi ko nang they have changed their attitude. Everybody is like Michael Calisaan na,” he expressed. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Gervacio returns to Foton

Dzi Gervacio will make a return stint with Foton for the 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix, slated to open on October 21 as the Tornadoes gun for a three-peat in the import-laden tournament. The former Ateneo de Manila University star last donned the Tornadoes jersey two years ago and her addition will shore up the squad's lineup in the nine-team season-ending conference.   “Injury-plagued pa rin kami so we’ll see (if maka-three-peat) but Miss Gervacio will be a big boost to our campaign,” said Foton team owner Rommel Sytin Friday when he met Gervacio and league officials headed by chairman Philip Juico and president Ramon ‘Tats’ Suzara. Gervacio will add more firepower to the Tornadoes, alongside veterans and national team members 6-foot-5 Jaja Santiago and Maika Ortiz and holdovers Ivy Perez and returning Dindin Santiago-Manabat. Foton tapped Sara Klisura and Katarina Vukamanovic of Serbia and Dragana Perunicnic of Montenegro.  Gervacio suited up for the Tornadoes back in the 2014 Grand Prix and the 2015 All-Filipino Conference where she unfortunately sustained a left ACL injury in a match against Philips Gold. She returned to indoor volleyball last year with BaliPure in the V-League and then played for BanKo-Perlas in the 2017 Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference. Gervacio is also busy organizing tournaments for Beach Volleyball Republic with close friends and Ateneo alumni Charo Soriano, Bea Tan and Gretchen Ho. The meeting also served as a chance for bridging the gap between Gervacio and Suzara regarding the issue of the delayed release of the international transfer certificates of PVL imports back in May. Gervacio apologized for her tweets and the hashtag 'IbigayMoNaTatsSuzara, which accused Suzara, the marketing and development committee chair of the Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) and an active member of the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB), of meddling with the processing of the ITCs. Gervacio in an letter said that her decision to bring the issue through social media platform ‘was in no way to try and disrespect Mr. Suzara as it was my way of eliciting a response from the authorities regarding the matter.’ Suzara said that everything’s water under the bridge now and thanked Sytin for initiating the fruitful meeting to clear the issue. “I respect Mr. Sytin and admire him for his decision to settle all things among the PSL, our stakeholders, our players and prove that negativity has no place in our quest to become one of the leading sports leagues in the country,” he said.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»
