Gilas Cadets crush Cardinals for third win

Robert Bolick debuted with a bang as he led the beefed up Gilas Pilipinas Cadets, 97-78, over Mapua University on Monday in Group A of the 12th FilOil Flying V Preseason Cup at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The San Beda University star scored 13 points in his first game for the national squad, which won its third game in eight outings. Aside from Bolick, Fil-American Troy Rike and Ateneo stars Matt Nieto and Thirdy Ravena saw action for the Gilas Cadets for the first time. Rike, a recruit from Wake Forest, finished with 11 points and eight rebounds while Nieto and Ravena, who played for the Blue Eagles earlier in a 108-44 blowout win over Emilio Aguinaldo College, chipped in with nine and eight points, respectively, for the Gilas Cadets. Kobe Paras had 12.      “We’re just experimenting on some things. We played three bigs, it’s all experimental. You know it worked. We’re just trying to see how we can make use of all the Cadets players,” said head coach Jong Uichico. The Gilas Cadets went off to a good start to take control of the match early before closing it out with stronger finish. Cedric Pelayo and Eric Jabel scored 14 each while Lawrence Victoria and Daniel Aguirre posted 12 and 11 markers, respectively, for the 3-3 Cardinals. Meanwhile, the Red Lions banked on their crucial defensive stops by Donald Tankoua and the steady hands of Javee Mocon at the foul line in the last 50 seconds of the game to put a dent on De La Salle University's erswhile unbeaten record, 72-70, in the night cap. Mocon finished with 20 points while Tankoua had nine markers for SBU, which improved to 3-2 slate. Mocon broke a 68-68 deadlock with 48.8 seconds remaining with three free throws off a foul from Kira Samuel, who tied the game in the previous play. Tankoua made two defensive stops in the Green Archers' possesion - a block oon Samuel and a steal off an inbound pass.  Tankoua split his free throws with 21.5 ticks left to give the Red Lions a four-point cushion. DLSU saw its six-game winning streak snapped. Andrei Caracut finished with 20 points while Justine Baltazar and Samuel had 13 each for the Green Archers.              Box score: GILAS (97) –- Bolick 13, Paras 12, Rike 11, Nieto 9, Ravena 8, Tuffin 8, Tamayo 6, Alejandro 5, Sotto 5, Gozum 5, Tratter 4, Go 4, Tolentino 4, Mocon 3, Tolentino Vi 0.

Lady Falcons collect third win in a row, remain unblemished

Adamson University kept its perfect record intact as the Lady Falcons easily picked their third win in as many outings with a 25-12, 25-14, 25-13 demolition of Technological Institute of the Philippines in Group B of the  inaugural Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference. The Lady Falcons solidified their hold of top spot and moved a step closer to clinching a semifinals berth. Jema Galanza pounded 11 attacks, nailed six aces and  a kill block for 18 points in an all-around performance that saw her also contribute 11 digs and five excellent receptions on defense for the San Marcelino-based squad. Joy Dacoron added 12 points while Fenela Emnas chipped in 23 excellent sets in Adamson's 44 attack points.    It was a quick stint for Adamson inside the FilOil Flying V Centre as the smaller Lady Engineers were no match against the rampaging Lady Falcons, who still have College of St. Benilde and San Beda College remaining in their elimination round assignments. TIP dropped to 0-3 mark and was pushed on the brink of elimination. Alyssa Layug scored eight points while Ashley Jinon had seven for the Lady Engineers, who only had 19 points off attacks.   ---       Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

Blue Eagles out to clinch a semis spot

Undefeated Ateneo de Manila University aims for the first semifinals spot against University of the Philippines on Saturday in the men’s division of the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Game time is at 10:00 a.m. Sporting a 4-0 win-loss record, the Blue Eagles are just a victory away from clinching a spot in the best-of-three semis. Behind the consistent game of four-time UAAP Most Valuable Player Marck Espejo, who is averaging 19 points per game, the Blue Eagles are on the right track of annexing another crown in a Sports Vision-organizeed tournament after claiming the now defunct V-League’s last two Collegiate Conference titles – all in clean sweep.  The three-time UAAP champion Ateneo is coming off a 25-13, 25-22, 25-22, demolition of reigning NCAA titlist College of St. Benilde last Wednesday. Espejo led the way with 17 points while Ishmael Rivera had nine markers. The duo are expected to deliver once again against the Fighting Maroons.

PVL: Lady Eagles weather Lady Falcons upset scare for back-to-back wins

Ateneo-Motolite survived an upset scare from a very game Adamson-Akari, 17-25, 25-23, 25-20, 21-25, 15-12, on Sunday to score back-to-back wins in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Kat Tolentino stepped up big time in the deciding set, scoring six points in the frame to help the Lady Eagles improve to 4-1 win-loss record at second spot behind unbeaten BanKo (5-0). Tolentino scattered 28 points off 20 spikes, five kill blocks and three service aces while Jules Samonte added 11 markers off the bench for Ateneo-Motolite. Maddie Madayag and Ponggay Gaston chipped in nine points each for the Lady Eagles' second win in back-to-back weekend schedule after taking down Iriga-Navy in straight sets Saturday.   The incoming third year hitter scored five of Ateneo-Motolite's first nine points as the Lady Eagles built a 9-3 advantage. Behind Bernadette Flora and Ceasa Pinar's heroics, Adamson-Akari closed the gap, 9-8.  Ateneo-Motolite again went ahead, 13-11, before Krich Macaslang scored a hit to push the Lady Falcons within one, 13-12. Tolentino put the Lady Eagles at match point before Vanessa Gandler sealed the win with a cross court hit.    “Every game this is our problem because siguro new system, we always start slow for the past few games we really start slow and we try to fix that problem,” said Ateneo-Motolite head coach Oliver Almadro, who commended the Lady Falcons’ floor defense. “I thank the Lord that we won today, we won yesterday,” he added. “But I’m not happy with what we’ve shown today. It’s because, I guess, we’re getting used to playing pa sa back-to-back (schedule) so siguro being a student and an athlete hindi pa sanay doon sa big games na magkasunod. But we have to be used to it and this is a learning experience for us and we really just have to maximize our strength and really believing kung ano ang ginagawa namin.” The Lady Falcons, who showed superb floor defense but were plagued with terrible errors, dropped their sixth game in as many outings tied with the Lady Oragons. Adamson was in control of the second set, 10-5, but committed 11 of the frame's 13 errors the rest of the way as the Lady Falcons giave Ateneo-Motolite a chance to steal the set and tie the match.  The Lady Eagles again came back from a 14-15 deficit with a 10-4 run capped by an attack error by Flora for a 24-19 lead. Ateneo-Motolite committed a net touch in the next play before Adamson-Akari surrendered the set on another miscue by Flora.         Flora finished with 25 points on 20 kills, three kill blocks and a pair of aces while adding 24 digs and eight excellent receptions. Chiara Permentilla and Gracelchen Ave scored 15 and 12 markers, respectively, for Adamson.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles      .....»»

The Red Lions still hold the top spot with a 15-1 record but they're just half-a-game away from the no. 2 Pirates who also have a twice-to-beat bonus in the Final Four. "It'll be difficult if we become complacent at this point, everything starts in practice and what we need to do is put in extra work in both training and in games," said Mocon in Filipino Thursday at Filoil Flying V Center.

NCAA Season 94: Handa at palaban kami ngayon –- Napa

Letran just secured a spot in the Final Four and is in the right path to vie for the last semifinals twice-to-beat advantage in the NCAA Season 94 seniors basketball competition. The Knights’ chances for the Final Four bonus now depends on their next two assignments and a little help from fate. “’Yung tadhana na ang magsasabi kung aabot ba kami o hindi,” said Napa moments after Letran destroyed San Sebastian College, 79-61, Tuesday for its fifth straight win at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Sporting a 12-4 win-loss record at solo third, the Intramuros-based squad now needs to sweep their last two outings against College of St. Benilde and University of Perpetual Help and pray hard for Lyceum of the Philippines University (14-2) or three-peat-seeking San Beda University (14-1) not to reach 15 wins to force a playoff for the semis incentive. But Napa’s focus right now is not about the semifinals scenario but on building his team’s momentum. “Pero hindi na namin iniisip yun eh (twice-to-beat),” he said. “Kung di namin makuha ang twice-to-beat o makuha namin ang twice-to-beat magtatrabaho pa rin kami.” His concern is to make sure that his squad will be ready for the Final Four -- with or without an incentive.   “Kung sino man ang makakatapat namin ay talagang paghahadaan namin dahil kaming Letran handa kami at palaban kami ngayon,” he said. Letran just gave a fair warning.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA Season 94: Knights secure Final Four berth

Letran fought off the third quarter outburst of San Sebastian College - Recoletos with a scoring barrage in the payoff period for a 79-61 win to clinch a spot in the Final Four of the NCAA Season 94 men's seniors basketball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. After squandering a 17-point lead at the half when the Stags cut down their deficit to seven heading into the fourth quarter, the Knights dropped a 13-2 blitz to widen the gap to 72-54 with just four minutes left in the game. From there Letran cruised to its 12th win in 16 games and advanced to the semifinals for the first time since winning it all back in Season 91. "Thankful kami kasi umabot kami sa ganitong sitwasyon pero di pa rin naman ito ang gusto naming mangyari. Mayroon pa kaming last two games na kailangang trabahuhin before we look forward doon sa Final Four," said Letran coach Jeff Napa, whose squad will wrap the elimination round against University of Perpetual Help and College of St. Benilde. Larry Muyang finished with a double-double with 15 points and 13 rebounds while Bonbon Batiller and Nico Galvelo added 15 and 14 markers, respectively, for the Knights. Chris Fajarito got 11 markers in Letran's fifth straight win. A sweep by the Intramuros-based squad in its last two outings coupled by either Lyceum of the Philippines University (14-2) or San Beda University (14-1) not reaching 15 wins will force a playoff for a semis twice-to-beat bonus.   Letran built a 42-25 lead after the first half but SSC-R poured 27 points in the third period to cut down its deficit to 59-52 heading into the payoff period.  The Knights were able to counter at the start of the fourth to build enough cushion for the win. Letran limited the Stags to only nine points in the final 10 minutes of the ballgame. SSC-R dropped to 4-12 win-loss record. Michael Calisaan had 19 points, Regile Ilagan added 12 markers while Jesse Sumoda chipped in 12 in a lost cause for the Stags.   Box score: Letran (79) --- Muyang 15, Batiller 15, Galvelo 14, Fajarito 11, Ambohot 8, Calvo 7, Quinto 4, Celis 3, Yu 2, Taladua 0, Balagasay 0, Banez 0, Agbong 0, Mandreza 0.

LSGH denies San Beda s entry into NCAA 94 Final Four

STANDINGS LSGH 13-2 (Final Four) MAPUA 11-4 SAN BEDA 10-5 JRU 9-6 LPU 8-7 ARELLANO 6-8 PERPETUAL 6-9 SAN SEBASTIAN 5-10 (eliminated) LETRAN 3-11 (eliminated) EAC 3-12 (eliminated) College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills remains the first and only team assured of a place in the next round of the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament. San Beda High School tried its best to get that as well on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, but was instead resoundingly rejected by the Junior Blazers who registered a 91-78 come-from-behind win. Main man Joel Cagulangan topped the scoring column with 24 points to go along with six rebounds and three assists, but only made 9-of-22 shots from the field In the endgame, it was Sydney Mosqueda who came through, scoring 10 of his 19 points in the tight final frame. “We’re happy with the win because our boys showed resiliency,” head coach Marvin Bienvenida said post-game. The defending champions were down by five points inside the last four minutes until Mosqueda went on a 5-0 run to tie the tally. The Red Cubs again took the lead, 75-72, and even had a chance to increase it, but Inand Fornilos stole the ball and the possession from them. At the other end, Mosqueda then set up Fornilos for an easy look inside that proved to be the go-ahead basket. San Beda would keep coming from that point, but Cagulangan had all the answers for CSB-LSGH which strengthened its stranglehold on the top-seed. Now at 13-2, they are one win away from clinching the twice-to-beat advantage. “We are still taking it one game at a time. We are not done proving to ourselves that we are getting better each and every game,” coach Marvin said. For the now 10-5 Red Cubs, Zach Estacio showed the way with 13 points while Joshua Lazaro also had a 10-point, 12-rebound double-double. A win would have assured them of at least a playoff for a Final Four spot. Instead, they now find themselves still behind 11-4 Mapua High School and barely ahead of 9-6 Jose Rizal High School and 8-7 Lyceum of the Philippines University. In the day’s other game, University of Perpetual Help stayed alive after beating down San Sebastian College-Recoletos, 82-67. Emman Galman was on fire all game long and wound up with a career-best 30 points and was backstopped by Tony Ogunsanya who posted a 20-point, 14-rebound double-double. Just at halftime, Galman already had 17 markers to his name, almost matching the output of their opponents at 22. At 6-9, the Junior Altas still have a boxer’s chance at snatching a playoff berth. On the other hand, now at 5-10, the Staglets are no longer in contention for the Final Four. Kean Baclaan fronted their effort in this one with 24 points, six rebounds, five steals, and four assists.

Defending champion San Beda University joined Lyceum of the Philippines University on top of the standing and secured at least a playoff for a Final Four spot in the NCAA Season 94 seniors basketball competition. Robert Bolick sparked the Red Lions’ telling run in the fourth quarter while JaVee Mocon buried two cold-blooded triples to break the backs of the San Sebastian College Stags for an 82-75 win Thursday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Red Lions captured their seventh straight win for a 13-1 win-loss record tied with the Pirates.

Mocon finished with 20 points and 11 rebounds while Bolick scored 18 for the Red Lions. Donald Tankoua got 16 markers and pulled down 14 boards for the Mendiola-based squad.  Bolick scored five straight points to put San Beda back in the lead after trailing 64-65 early in the fourth. Mocon put the game away with consecutive treys that gave the Red Lions an 82-72 lead with 1:52 left. The Stags saw their three-game winning streak snapped to fall to 4-10 slate. Allyn Bulanadi got 23 markers while Regile Ilagan and Alvin Capobres finished with 20 and 12 points, respectively, for SSC-R.   Box score: SBU (82) --- Mocon 20, Bolick 18, Tankoua 16, Kwetkuteye 10, Soberano 9, Nelle 4, Abuda 2, Cabanag 2, Eugene 1, Presbitero 0, Doliguez 0, Oftana 0, Cuntapay 0, Tongco.

PVL: Lady Blazers try to keep semis bid alive

College of St. Benilde looks to breathe life to its Final Four hopes when the Lady Blazers clash with also-ran University of Perpetual Help in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference Saturday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The match begins at 4:00 p.m. and will air via livestream. The Lady Blazers are one of the three teams still in contention for the last Final Four spot with a 2-4 win-loss record tied with San Beda University. Unbeaten Adamson University (6-0), University of Sto. Tomas (5-1) and Far Eastern University (5-1) occupy the other best-of-three semifinals seats. CSB is in a must-win situation against the Lady Altas, who are looking to play the spoilers’ role after bowing out of the race with a 1-5 slate. A win by the Lady Blazers will give them a chance to force a playoff for a semis ticket. But their fate will also depend on the Lady Red Spikers’ match against University of the Philippines (3-3). CSB must win in straight or four sets and wish that San Beda will defeat UP in five sets to earn higher quotient in case of a three-way tie at 3-4. If the Lady Blazers, Lady Red Spikers and Lady Maroons close the elims in a three-way logjam, the two squads with higher quotient will faceoff for the last semifinals seat. Meanwhile, UST and FEU battle to end their elims on a high note and a good position heading into the Final Four in PVL on Tour’s Cagayan De Oro stop. Game time is at 4:00 p.m. at the Xavier University gym.   ---             Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
