Naghihintay pa kami ng kapalit ni coach Jerry Yee -- Carlos

The University of the Philippines has yet to name a new coach almost a month after head coach Jerry Yee decided to quit his post after four seasons. The Lady Maroons are still sticking with the system left behind by Yee, who handled the Diliman-based squad.      “Sa ngayon kasi wala pang sinasabi (na papalit),” said third year player Diana Carlos on Monday after UP’s 25-19, 25-13, 25-19, win against listless College of St. Benilde on Monday in Group B of the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. “Sa ngayon more training and naghihintay kami kung sino ang papalit kay coach,” she added. The Lady Maroons scored their second straight win in three outings to keep their semifinals hopes alive. Carlos said that their five-set loss to the unbeaten Adamson University in their tournament debut was an eye-opener for the team.  “Talo kami sa Adamson hindi naman sa inaano ko (ang Adamson) pero yung skills kasi namin. Tinalo kami ng sarili naming,” she recalled. “Sa fifth set six straight points di kami gumalaw. Siyempre nagising kami kaya kailangan naming bumawi talaga.” UP remains in the thick of the battle for the two best-of-three semifinals slots. The Lady Maroons’s last two assignments are against San Beda College (2-1) on Saturday and Arellano University (3-1) on Sep. 30.    “Siyempre sobrang important kasi alam natin ang San Beda at Arellano mga nagta-top 4 sa NCAA ‘yan eh,” said Carlos. “Wala namang pinagkaiba ang NCAA sa UAAP eh. Kailangan lang naming mag-focus at mindset talaga.”     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

UAAP VOLLEYBALL: Adamson makes it rain from the service line for back-to-back wins

Adamson University took advantage of University of the Philippines’ service reception woes to carve out a straight-set, 25-9, 27-25, 25-20, win for the Lady Falcons’ second straight win in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Lady Falcons’ punished the Lady Maroons’ with eight service winners out of their game total of 17 just in the opening set to set the tone of the match as Adamson moved up to a 2-1 win-loss record at solo third spot. UP dropped its second straight game after opening its campaign with a five-set win over University of the East. Adamson feasted from the service line to open the match as the Lady Falcons built a 17-4 lead on an ace by rookie Chiara Permentilla. It ballooned to 22-7 before Mylene Paat sealed the first frame with Adamson’s eighth service winner of the set. "That first set really hurt UP and our passing was really good," said Adamson head coach Air Padda, whose squad surpassed its win total last year in her debut season.   Paat scored 15 points anchored on eigth service aces - six in the first set - and had 10 digs while skipper Jema Galanza added 14 markers. Joy Dacoron and Permentilla finished with 11 and 10 markers, respectively, for the Lady Falcons.   UP fought back from a 13-18 deficit in the second set with a six unanswered points to take the helm, 19-18, only to get behind, 24-23, once again on a running attack by Dacoron. The Lady Maroons saved two set points before Galanza pushed Adamson to a 26-25 lead. An attack error by UP’s Isa Molde yielded the frame to the Lady Falcons.               Adamson kept its barrage of service aces in the third to pull away midway in the third to cruise to an easy win, the Lady Falcons first since defeating the Lady Maroons in five sets back in Season 77 second round. Tots Carlos was the only UP player in double figures with 12 points while Molde and Jessma Ramos combined for 12 markers.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

These Adamson Baby Falcons are nobodies no more

In the first round of the 80th Season of the UAAP Juniors Basketball Tournament, it was all about fully-loaded Ateneo de Manila High School, powerhouse Nazareth School of National University, awoken giant University of Sto. Tomas, and defending champion Far Eastern University-Diliman. With those four locking down the top half of the standings, the Final Four seemed to be set. Then came the second round and a brand new upstart entered the playoff picture. Competitive in their contests up against the top teams in the first round, Adamson High School built upon that confidence to register a record of 4-3 in the second round. That, along with the Tiger Cubs’ struggles, led to a 7-7 elimination round finish for the Baby Falcons – extending their campaign with a playoff for the fourth-seed. The motivation was pretty simple for the squad nobody thought would be contending this quick. “Ang battle cry namin is we are nobody and we want to make a name for ourselves,” head coach Mike Fermin shared. He then continued, “Imagine, 14 rookies, sino ba yang mga yan? Yun lang nasa utak namin.” Adamson was expected to be rebuilding as it has not even been a year after the departure of former head coach Goldwyn Monteverde along with what was once a championship-caliber core including Gerry Abadiano, EJ Agbong, Forthsky Padrigao, Encho Serrano, and Carl Tamayo. Enter Fermin – and really, his track record of maximizing whatever materials he has should have told us that the Baby Falcons were taking flight sooner than later. The 38-year-old mentor once took over for Kenneth Duremdes and led the Soaring Falcons to a respectable finish. When Franz Pumaren was installed as Seniors head coach, Fermin then took his talents to the Lady Falcons whom he guided to the Final Four. Now, the always amiable mentor has been tasked to make sure that there is wind beneath the wings of Adamson High. And for the third time, the San Marcelino-based school’s faith in Fermin has paid dividends – with the Baby Falcons taking the Tiger Cubs to the limit before surrendering a one-point defeat in overtime in their do-or-die game for the fourth-seed. Of course, it had to help that three of Monteverde’s recruits opted to stay. “Malaking bagay na nandito pa rin yung Doria brothers at yung Sabandal kasi nadadala nila yung leadership on and off the court,” the head coach said, talking about starting forwards Andrey and Adam Doria and lead guard Joem Sabandal. He then continued, “Tapos yung experience nila, malaking bagay rin. Masasabi nilang, ‘Nakapaglaro na kami ng UAAP at mase-share namin yung experience na yun.’” And oh, of course, it had to help that one of those three returnees happened to be a star just waiting for a chance to shine.w Sabandal has been, without a doubt, the breakout star of the second round of the season – and even the entire season because, well, really, CJ Cansino has already been doing CJ Cansino things since a year ago. That was again evident in the fourth-seed playoff as the Cagayan de Oro native almost had a triple-double with a stat line of 20 points, nine assists, nine rebounds, and three steals. While their surprise contention didn’t put them in the semifinals, Adamson will remain intact and reap the rewards of their experience for next season. Without a doubt, nobody could say they are nobodies anymore. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Baby Falcons swoop onto playoff berth; UE scores vs UPIS

STANDINGS Ateneo 13-0 NU 11-2 FEU-Diliman 8-5 Adamson 7-7 UST 6-7 DLSZ 4-10 UPIS 3-11 UE 2-12 The surprises are far from over from Adamson High School in the UAAP 80 Juniors Basketball Tournament. With their playoff lives on the line, it wasn’t Joem Sabandal who came through but the other guys as the Baby Falcons took care of business up against also-ran De La Salle Zobel, 75-51, on Sunday at the Blue Eagle Gym in Quezon City. Adrian Manlapaz had for himself a breakout game with a 20-point, 10-rebound double-double, Adam Doria also turned in his best game of the season with 18 markers, and the San Marcelino-based squad is now assured of at least an eliminator for the fourth and final playoff berth. While Sabandal didn’t star, he still had big-time contributions of 13 points, six assists, six rebounds, and one steal. It was also the team captain who detonated the 28-7 second quarter blast that turned a one-point deficit into a 44-24 lead. The Junior Archers would never threaten the rest of the way and the Adamson lead would only increase to as much as 27. With that, the Baby Falcons finish the elimination round at 7-7 – temporarily alone at the fourth spot depending on the result of University of Sto. Tomas’ matchup with Far Eastern University-Diliman later. If the Tiger Cubs lose, the fourth and final playoff berth goes to Adamson. If the Tiger Cubs win, they will head into a knockout bout with Adamson for the fourth and final playoff berth. Whatever happens from now, head coach Mike Fermin is nothing but proud of his boys who have emerged as the unlikeliest of contenders. In the game day’s opener, University of the East scored a well-earned 94-85 win against University of the Philippines Integrated School. The Junior Warriors drew power performances from their Big Three as Andrei Dulalia had a mighty 24-point, 21-rebound double-double; Agem Miranda had his own 22 markers, 10 boards, and five assists; and Shane Dichoso chipped in 20 points. With that, they registered only their second win of the season - and their first not due to forfeiture. For the Junior Maroons, Matt Santiago topped the scoring column with 19 points. Fellow graduating players Joelo Tupaz, Rafael Labao, and Jaggie Gregorio added 15, 15, and 10 markers, respectively. At the end of the season for them, DLSZ stands at 4-10, UPIS stands at 3-11, and UE stands at 2-12.

Cobb stars as La Salle halts late UP rally to stay unbeaten

UAAP VOLLEYBALL: DLSU, UP battle for share of the lead

Grand slam-seeking De La Salle University and University of the Philippines collide for a share of the lead Saturday in the 80th UAAP men’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Opening serve is at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA on SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD on SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream.      The Lady Spikers survived an early challenge from University of Sto. Tomas, 25-20, 17-25, 25-22, 15-25, 15-8, a week ago. Fielding a veteran core composed of reigning Most Valuable Player Majoy Baron, Kim Kianna Dy, Desiree Cheng, libero Dawn Macandi and with sophomore setter Michelle Cobb doing a great job filling in the shoes left by Kim Fajardo, DLSU remains to be the team to beat this season. The Lady Spikers are also looking to avoid a repeat of their first round defeat against the Lady Maroons last year.  “Hindi ko pa nakikita lahat, kung baga nangangapa sa isa’t isa kasi di pa namin nakikita kung anong meron ang UP ngayon,” said DLSU head coach Ramil De Jesus. “Although nawala dun si (Nicole) Tiamzon and si (Kathy) Bersola and yung libero si (Pia) Gaiser. So malaking bagay din yun para sa team nila.” UP is also coming off a tough win over University of the East, 25-19, 25-13, 21-25, 16-25, 15-8, last Sunday. “The challenge against La Salle, they have good service as well, so we just have to work on our passing and defense,” said Lady Maroons coach Godfrey Okumu. “But I respect their volleyball, they play good volleyball, but like them we are expecting good reesults from our next match.” Diana Carlos, Isa Molde and Justine Dorog will be the Lady Maroons' main offensive weapons.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
