NCAA champ San Beda set to see action in Dubai Invitational

San Beda College is one of only three teams in the NCAA which will not be seeing action in the 2018 PBA D-League Aspirants Cup. That doesn’t mean, however, that the Red Lions will be getting left behind in terms of preparations. The defending champions of the NCAA will the Philippines’ representatives in the 29th Dubai International Basketball Tournament from January 19 to 26. For them, carrying the flag is nothing but an honor. “We got this rare invitation to join this prestigious tournament and represent the country against top teams in West Asia. It’s a great opportunity to learn from the top competition and a great honor to play in front of our fellow Filipinos in Dubai,” team manager Jude Roque said. Fronting the fight for San Beda will be Gilas Pilipinas 2023 prospects Robert Bolick, Kemark Carino, and Javee Mocon. “Our players will surely gain (a lot) from this experience. We expect them to come back home as a better team,” Roque said. Flanking them will be Finals MVPs Donald Tankoua and Arnaud Noah, Franz Abuda, Ben Adamos, JB Bahio, Jeramer Cabanag, Clint Doliguez, Calvin Oftana, Jomari Presbitero, AC Soberano, Eugene Toba, and Radge Tongco. The Red Lions will be mentored by multi-titled mentor Boyet Fernandez and assistant Gino Manuel along with statistician Benjie Berro, physical therapist Mike Sunga, and liaison officer Joey de Jesus. Winners of 10 of the last 12 NCAA tournaments, they will now try their luck against the likes of United Arab Emirates national team; Lebanese clubs Al-Hikma, Al-Riyadi, and Homentmen; Egyptian clubs Al Ahly and Zamalek; Libyan club Al-Nasr; Moroccan club AS Sale; and Tunisian club ES Rades. A year ago, the Philippines was represented by Mighty Sports which registered a 1-5 record in the invitational tournament. San Beda, along with Arellano University and Mapua University, opted not to join the PBA D-League. Conversely, all of Colegio de San Juan de Letran (Wangs Basketball), College of St. Benilde (Go for Gold), Emilio Aguinaldo College (Batangas), Jose Rizal University, Lyceum of the Philippines University (Zark’s Burgers), San Sebastian College-Recoletos (Che’Lu Bar and Grill), and University of Perpetual Help will be seeing action in the tournament commencing on January 18. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

  BANGKOK - A retired Japanese crime boss has been arrested in Thailand ending more than 14 years on the run after photos of his 'yakuza' tattoos and a missing little finger went viral.   The fugitive, Shigeharu Shirai, 72, was arrested by a SWAT team on Wednesday in the sleepy central Thai market town of Lopburi while he was out shopping.   Japanese authorities have called for his arrest over an alleged role in the shooting of a rival in Japan in 2003, after which he fled to Thailand, married a Thai woman and drifted into a seemingly peaceful retirement.   That was until a Thai local posted some photos of the diminutive, frail-looking retiree...Keep on reading: Japanese crime boss held in Thailand after ‘yakuza’ tatts go viral.....»»

Worry not, Perpetual, you have a homegrown hope in Jielo Razon

University of Perpetual Help will be undergoing some sort of rebuild. Following five straight winning seasons from 2012 to 2016, the Altas posted their first losing record in recent history a year ago. With a standing of just 4-14, they found themselves ninth out of 10 teams. The Las Pinas-based squad wasted no time in taking action by bringing in multi-titled mentor Frankie Lim as consultant. However, the cupboard remains bare in terms of talent with all of AJ Coronel, Gab Dagangon, and GJ Ylagan having graduated. That means that only Nigerian Prince Eze and court general Keith Pido remain from that core. Good thing then that Perpetual just so happens to have a promising prospect coming out of its high school. And it’s an even better thing that said promising prospect has committed to remain an Alta. “Sa Perpetual pa rin po ako mag-Seniors,” Jielo Razon told ABS-CBN Sports, adding that he has already been practicing with the team since January 4. In Razon, Lim is getting a confident player who can score from all over the floor while seemingly not getting tired. The five-foot-11 guard averaged 17.7 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.4 steals. He was the second-leading scorer in the NCAA 93 Juniors Basketball Tournament. While none of his three years in Las Pinas ended up in the playoffs, his talent alone kept his team competitive. It doesn’t hurt either that he is the definition of homegrown – having been born and then having grown up in Las Pinas. “Kaya nga po ‘di na rin ako aalis dito. Dito ako nagsimula kaya gusto ko, dito na rin ako ga-graduate,” he said. He then continued, “Kung ‘di naman po ako nila kinuha, wala pong mangyayari sa akin kaya malaki po ang utang na loob ko sa school.” Razon’s commitment marks the first time a well-regarded Junior Alta will become an Alta as former stars Gelo Alolino and Joseph Eriobu bolted for National University and Mapua University, respectively. While he is a Perpetualite through and through, the 18-year-old said his basketball idols are Jiovani Jalalon of Arellano University and Rey Nambatac and Colegio de San Juan de Letran. Don’t make the mistake of thinking, though, that he has forgotten about Alta legend Scottie Thompson. “Sana po, magawa ko yung nagawa ni kuya Scottie,” he expressed. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Creamline brings in Gumabao, Gohing

Creamline is building up a powerhouse team months before the start of the 2018 Premier Volleyball League. After securing the services of volleyball stars Alyssa Valdez and Risa Sato, who played for BaliPure last year, the Rebisco franchise in its Facebook page announced the addition of former De La Salle University teammates Michele Gumabao and Melissa Gohing. In a ‘Guess Who?’ post by Creamline Thursday and Friday, there were clues about the two new players that the Cool Smashers tapped to beef up their roster – all were pointing at Gohing and Gumabao. Gohing won the UAAP Season 71 Rookie of the Year award and collected four titles with DLSU. Gumabao is a three-time UAAP champion, two-time Best Blocker winner and Finals Most Valuable Player back in Season 75 before foregoing her last playing year the following season.   This will mark the return of Gumabao to the Sports Vision-organized volleyball league after bolting out of Pocari Sweat last year. She transferred to Cocolife in the Philippine Superliga. Gohing, on the other hand, left the Lady Warriors after three years with the Federated Distributors, Inc. franchise. The multi-awarded libero played with Gumabao in the PSL back in 2015 when they left the DLSU core-led Generika Lifesavers to transfer to FDI’s club Philips Gold Lady Slammers. The two gave the Lady Slammers a couple of bronze medal finishes that year in the All-Filipino and Grand Prix before the club bolted out the following year to join the V-League.   With Gumabao, Gohing and Myla Pablo at the helm, the Pocari Sweat dominated the tournament winning the Open Conference and Reinforced Conference titles at the expense of Air Force and the Valdez-led Bureau of Customs, respectively. Creamline despite having collegiate aces Valdez and top setter Jia Morado settled for a third place finish in the PVL’s inaugural Reinforced and Open conferences. The PVL is tentatively scheduled to open April......»»

Ngayon lang ako na-threaten sa pagpasok sa Top 4 -- Gorayeb

After more than three decades with San Sebastian College both as a player and as a coach, seasoned mentor Roger Gorayeb admits that for the first time he feels threatened by his team’s chances of advancing in the semifinals. Though his Lady Stags survived their opening day match in the 93rd NCAA women’s volleyball competition Thursday with a sweep of Emilio Aguinaldo College, Gorayeb’s 9-woman roster with only eight available players proved to be a difficult challenge even for the seasoned mentor. “Sa tinagal kong ito, 30-plus years sa NC parang ito na ‘yung pinakamahinang team (na nahawakan ko). Kulang sa tao, hirap talaga ako kasi two years nga na walang recruitment (because of the K to 12 education system),” said the multi-titled mentor after SSC-R’s 25-16, 25-19, 25-16 win over the Lady Generals at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.       The NCAA implemented a minimum of nine players per team to participate in the tournament. SSC-R only has eight holdovers from last year’s roster after the departure of three-time Most Valuable Player Grethcel Soltones, Kat Villegas and Denice Lim, who migrated in the US, and needed to tap an additional player, a former swimming team member, to meet the requirement. Out of the eight available players only seven saw action in the Lady Stags’ season debut with Julie Anne Tiangco sitting out to rest her knee injury. A short rotation is nothing new for Gorayeb but his current situation by far is the most challenging. “Mayroon na akong naranasan (noon sa Baste), champion pa nga kami eh. Maraming beses simula’t sapul hindi ako nagdodoseng players. Marami na sa akin ang 10. Nagtsa-champion kami na pito lang kami eh,” Gorayeb recalled. “Kaya lang ‘yung pito na ‘yun sobrang lakas na nun.” But this time it’s different. Looking at their remaining eight games in the tournament, Gorayeb said that making it to the Final Four could be an uphill climb. “Ito lang ‘yung time na nati-threaten ang pagpasok naming sa Top 4,” he said. “For the last 30-plus years hindi naman kami nawala roon eh. Ang lowest na nakuha ko third place eh.” “Eh wala eh. Pero I don’t want to look at it on that perspective na mahina ang player. Kasi marunong naman ‘yang mag-volleyball eh. Kailangan lang talaga isapuso lang nila na kulang kami sa tao, kailangang mag-extra effort ang lahat. Hindi pwedeng ang isa mahina ang loob o natatakot. Ang puhunan lang naman diyan ay tapang eh.”   ---            Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
