DOC VOLLEYBALL: Baring their Talons (Adamson vs. La Salle Analysis)

Coming off back-to-back close losses from UST and Ateneo, the Adamson Lady Falcons mustered enough grit to snatch their biggest win so far at the expense of the De La Salle University Lady Spikers. With simple and clean defense and execution, the Airess Padda- mentored squad was able to play technically sound volleyball. However, it was not an easy win for Adamson as La Salle showed moments of dominance when their middles were at work and when their services were coming off heavy. Set 1 AdU 25, DLSU 18 The Lady Falcons soared in confidently with an early lead, capitalizing on hitting miscues by the Lady Spikers off the pass. With an early 8-4 advantage from the start, the Lady Falcons were firing from all areas as setter Fhen Emnas showed commendable ball distribution. Adamson’s lead could have actually been higher early on if not for a couple of well placed serves by DLSU’s Des Cheng on zone 5 to disrupt the approach of Queen Falcon Jema Galanza from the left wing. Though it may seem that DLSU’s Michelle Cobb had some stuggles in the setting department, she was actually making good decisions on ball distribution. However, the Lady Spikers were simply not able to terminate especially with their first point conversion attempts off the pass. In most instances, DLSU’s first balls were low and flat, disabling Cobb to square properly into the net to find Majoy Baron or Aduke Ogunsanya and effectively attack from the middle. On the other hand,the Lady Falcons kept this pressure on the Lady Spikers by serving mostly to zone 1 to eliminate the threats from the middle and load up on their block on the wings, which were then successful in a couple of kill blocks as well as one-touches to help them convert in the transition. Adamson’s simple and disciplined defense was beneficial in holding DLSU at bay for the entire set. Set 2 DLSU 25, ADU 15 Quick to adjust from their 1st set lapses, the Lady Spikers went to regroup and prevented the Lady Falcons from getting an early lead once more. Whereas Adamson was able to force in some pipe attacks off poor passes in the 1st set, the DLSU blockers were better at reading the back row attacks of Adamson especially from a broken play. Contrary to their first set as well, the Lady Spikers were able to run their strongest assets, which are their middles as passing was higher, enabling Cobb to better position herself and locate her middles. With a barrage of low and flat floaters care of Queen Spiker Baron and Tin Tiamzon towards zone 5, DLSU was able to shut down the Lady Falcons’ offense to get the lead mid game. Adamson then went to adjust by the mid-game to start their own run. Targeting zone 5 as well, the Lady Falcons forced their counterparts to pass too tight and low, making it easy for Mylene Paat to set up her net defense and chip in a couple of kill blocks to minimize the lead. However, as soon as Baron went back to the service line, her aggresive serves spelled the end for the Lady Falcons as she continued to put pressure on zone 5, forcing Adamson’s passers and hitters to a series of mistakes costing the latter the set. Set 3 AdU 25,  DLSU 19 The third set opened with La Salle continuing its momentum from the second set with Baron racking some kills from the middle as well as disrupting the Adamson offensive with her services. Despite being one of the top receiving teams so far in this season, the Lady Falcons continued to show some struggles with low and flat floaters which the Lady Spikers continued to exploit. Adamson was then able to get ground once Eli Soyud showed that they were also capable of serving aggresively to shift the game to their favor. Serving fast floaters to zone 5, Soyud was able to prevent DLSU middle Ogunsanya from making a good approach, leaving the wings easier to defend. The Lady Spikers were then quick to adjust and reclaim momentum as they played aggresively from the serve and at the net care of Des Cheng and Baron. Down 11-16 in the middle of the set, Adamson made a spectacular 8-1 run as Mylene Paat put pressure on zone 1 with her services. This proved problematic for DLSU as it prevented Cobb once again from squaring properly into the net thereby eliminating any threat from a quick middle play. As a result, attacks from the wings by the Lady Spikers were easily defended by the Lady Falcons either with blocks or digs. Adamson’s better conversion off the transition towards the end of the set was instrumental in their 3rd set victory. Set 4 AdU 25, DLSU 22 The Lady Spikers mounted an early comeback at the start of set 4 as they once again challenged the Lady Falcons’ passing with heavy floaters from the service line. This proved effective in disabling Adamson from getting first point conversions, but the Lady Falcons proved they could hold their ground in the transition play. The middle of the set was when Adamson finally showed its talons making an amazing run care of Joy Dacoron’s consistent targeting of zone 1. With the DLSU attack strategy disrupted, Adamson had enough free balls to maximize their offense with Mylene Paat from the right wing. Adamson completely stunned DLSU as Paat, despite being a middle, continued to rack points from shoot plays from the right pin. The barrage continued as Emnas consistently served into zone 1 once more to eliminate the threat from DLSU’s middles. With only the left wing to defend, Paat showed dominance over the net as she set up back to back roofs to maintain the lead. The Lady Spikers mounted a run towards the end by targeting Galanza from the serve, but Adamson’s grit in transition defense enabled them to outplay DLSU and snatch away perhaps their biggest win in recent history. Take away points Given that one of the Lady Spikers’ main advantage is their middle play, the team must ensure that the first ball is optimal for the setter to locate the middles. With Adamson clearly exposing how zone 1 targeted serves prevents Cobb from squaring into the net and running a middle play, DLSU is challenged to minimize low and tight passes coming from Cobb’s blind side to lessen their attack predictability. In addition, back row attacks by Kim Dy from the right were sorely missed in the match leading to the left wing being heavily defended by Adamson blockers especially on a broken play. On the other hand, Adamson has clearly shown that they can consistently locate their serves as well as convert points from the transition. What proved to be crucial in their transition play is their disciplined floor defense that shows minimal extra movements. If the Lady Falcons can improve the speed and lower the height of their serves, they would be a significant threat since their transition defense would highly complement a more aggresive.  .....»»

TNT ties semis series after big Game 2 win over Ginebra

After being limited by foul trouble in the first half, Glen Rice Jr. balled out in the second, giving TNT the push it needed to level its 2017 Governors' Cup semifinals series against defending champion Ginebra. Rice's fourth-quarter explosion allowed the KaTropa to score a vengeful 103-96 win in Game 2 Wednesday at the Batangas City Coliseum, tying the best-of-5 series at one game apiece. Whistled for four fouls in the first half, Rice was unleashed in the final 12 minutes, leading TNT's bounce back effort after absorbing a 27-point embarrassment in the series opener. With the KaTropa trying to hold off a Ginebra uprising, Rice Jr. fired 12 points in the final period, taking over from the locals who managed to hold the fort quite nicely while he was on the bench. Rice Jr. finished with a team-high 21 points on just 10 attempts from the field, he also had three rebounds and four assists. With Rice Jr. in foul trouble, Jayson Castro did most of the heavy lifting, dropping 20 points on top of 10 assists and four rebounds. Troy Rosario was also effective, contributing 16 points and eight boards. After a flat Game 1 performance, TNT came out sharp in Game 2, taking a 31-14 lead after the opening quarter. However, the Gin Kings would settle down and cut the deficit to just two points at the break. Justin Brownlee was the high man for Ginebra, going for 25 points and 10 rebounds while LA Tenorio had 17. Game 3 is scheduled for Friday at the Big Dome.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»
