Dondon Hontiveros quietly retires from the PBA

ANTIPOLO --- One of the best shooters the Philippines has ever seen is finally calling it quits. After 17 years in the Philippine Basketball Association, Cebuano Hotshot Dondon Hontiveros is calling it a career, playing his final game for the Alaska Aces Wednesday at the Ynares Center here. His final performance? A quiet two points and four rebounds in just over 21 minutes of play. Don't let that fool you though, Hontiveros was a bad, bad man in the PBA and is truly an all-time great. As a direct hire for Tanduay in the year 2000, Hontiveros' PBA career would take off after he joined the San Miguel Beermen two years later. As the premier shooter for the PBA's winningest franchise, Hontiveros would turn into a consistent All-Star in the league and was a member of the national team in 2002 and 2007. Dondon would also win two championships with the Beermen before he was shipped to Air 21 in 2011. He would briefly return to the San Miguel franchise later in the year and would later find himself playing for Alaska by 2012. Hontiveros would play out the rest of his career with the Aces, winning one final championship in 2013. He's also fourth in the all-time list for most 3-point shots made in PBA history behind only Jimmy Alapag, Allan Caidic, and Ronnie Magsanoc. While there's still chances that another team might try to sign him, Hontiveros is perfectly content with his decision now to walk away from the game of basketball. He says his focus now is to be there for his son. 'Right now, ine-enjoy ko muna yung moment with my teammates and reflect on what I have learned, and what I think I can improve on as a leader, as a teammate, or as a friend,' the 40-year-old Hontiveros said. 'Kung ano man natutunan ko ngayon, swerte ako may anak ako na ite-train ko,' he added. With almost two decades spent in the Association. Hontiveros admits that the championships are the ones that he will miss most. Those and playing for the Philippines of course. He was part of the Gilas Pilipinas program and made the team in 2011 and 2015. “There’s too many to mention, pero I guess one of those yung championships, kasi hindi mo talaga ma-ano yun. Other than that, I guess, as a player, being part of the national team,' he said. 'It’s really different to play for the national team, to represent the country. I’m lucky to be able to do that,' Hontiveros added. Asked regarding what's next, Hontiveros says that he'd still like to stay close to basketball althought it might be hard to actually figure out what to do now that's his daily routine will change drastically. 'On a daily basis, iba na yung routine. Pero there’s always something to look forward to,' he said.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

Ricciardo tops both Singapore GP practices in record times

em>By Jerome Pugmire, Associated Press /em> SINGAPORE (AP) — Red Bull showed it might have the form to contend for victory at the Singapore Grand Prix, with Daniel Ricciardo beating his lap record again in the second practice on Friday. Ricciardo had already crushed his lap record from last year by nearly five seconds in the afternoon's first practice, and then went two seconds quicker in the second practice. The Australian clocked 1 minute, 40.852 seconds under the floodlights, and that was enough to convince him that he can clinch a second win of the season and sixth of his career on Sunday. 'I'm not surprised with our performance,' Ricciardo said. 'I have a lot of faith we can stay there all weekend.' Teammate Max Verstappen was second, more than half a second behind, championship leader Lewis Hamilton was .70 back in third, and his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas fourth. 'We looked very strong,' Verstappen said. 'We all know that Daniel is always very quick here.' It was a disappointing evening session for Ferrari, which was expected to dominate on the sinewy five-kilometer (three-mile) street circuit. Sebastian Vettel, who is second in the title race, could manage only the 11th best time and teammate Kimi Raikkonen was ninth. 'It was a difficult day and not a lot of things made sense,' Raikkonen said. 'There is a lot to work on.' Even though Vettel set his time using a slower tire compound in P2, he looked shaky and brushed the wall coming out of a routine turn. 'I was very lucky I could continue,' the four-time F1 champion said. 'It was a tricky session for us. The balance wasn't quite there.' In P1, he was second to Ricciardo, Verstappen was third and Hamilton fourth. Singapore is like Monaco and Hungary in that it is a hard-braking track which is tough to overtake on, and more suited to Ferrari and Red Bull than Mercedes. No driver has more podium finishes in Singapore than Vettel, whose impressive streak at the night race includes three straight wins from 2011-13 during his run of four straight F1 titles with former team Red Bull. But Ricciardo arrives in Singapore in very consistent form, with six podiums in the last nine races. He has further reason to be confident, finishing second here in the last two years, with the fastest lap both times. 'I knew we'd come here with a good car,' Ricciardo said. 'A dominant weekend is what I'm after.' His Red Bull team principal Christian Horner joked, perhaps it was Ricciardo's 'aerodynamic' new haircut that helped him shave off chunks of time. Regardless, Horner was somewhat cautious ahead of qualifying on Saturday. 'It was a very good day for both of our drivers. Daniel had a very strong session,' he said. 'But we didn't see Ferrari's true hand and Mercedes always hold a little bit up their sleeves.'   .....»»

Bolts gain share of first after pushing Alaska to brink of elimination

After a record 14-game losing skid that spanned two PBA conferences, Alaska was hard-pressed to make it to the playoffs of the 2017 Governors' Cup. Still, after a recent three-game revival, the Aces looked like they could manage to crash the playoff party. Well, their chances just took a major hit again. Meralco delivered a big blow to whatever slim playoff chances Alaska has in the season-ending joust after the Bolts scored a dominant 106-78 win Friday at the Big Dome. The Meralco win put Alaska to 3-7 for the conference, barely holdin on for dear life in the current PBA season. The Bolts, meanwhile, moved to 7-2, tied for first place with defending champion Ginebra. It was the team's first win since acquiring six-time champion Ranidel De Ocampo from sister team TNT. 'It's been an interesting week, picking up Ranidel in the middle of the week and having to try to teach him the system in three days. I thought he did a pretty good job today blending in with the team,' head coach Norman Black said. 'About the game itself, just a good all around effort for the entire team,' he added. Behind the career outing of rookie Mike Tolomia, who the Bolts also traded for earlier this conference, Meralco surged ahead in the first half and took the fight out of Alaska early. Tolomia lead a big run in the second quarter where Meralco outscored Alaska, 30-13, to take a 23-point lead at the break. The former FEU Tamaraw scored 11 of his 24 points in the period and was a perfect 5-of-5 from beyond the arc in the first half. He finished 6-of-6 from deep and was 8-of-9 overall. Aside from Tolomia, import Allen Durham also had a big game, finishing with 26 points, 18 rebounds, and six assists to lead the Bolts. De Ocampo droppe 10 off the bench in his Meralco debut. Falling behind early, Alaska tried to mount a comeback in the third period, coming to within 10 points before Meralco quickly restored order just before the fourth quarter. Things fully fell apart for the Aces in the final period as the Bolts ended up leading by as many as 31 points. Buck Henton led the way for Alaska with 23 points while JVee Casio was good for 18. The Aces will now have to rely on other teams losing to have a chance to sneaking into the postseason.     The scores: MERALCO 106 - Durham 26, Tolomia 24, Amer 17, Newsome 10, De Ocampo 10, Hodge 8, Lanete 5, Nabong 3, Caram 2, Atkins 0, Yeo 0, Sedurifa 0, Hugnatan 0, Faundo 0. ALASKA 78 - Henton 23, Casio 18, Manuel 10, Abueva 8, Racal 8, Enciso 3, Banchero 3, Exciminiano 2, Pascual 2, Mendoza 1, Thoss 0, Baclao 0, Galliguez 0. Quarters: 28-22, 58-35, 78-59, 106-78.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

Bodies of some of the 10 missing US sailors found after collision off Singapore – ABC News

Bodies of some of the 10 missing sailors have been found in flooded compartments of the USS John S. McCain, a Navy destroyer that collided with a commercial vessel east of Singapore early Monday morning, the U.S. Navy said. Ten sailors have been missing since the collision, and the remains of some were found by divers performing recovery operations inside the ship, Adm. Scott Swift, the commander of U.S. Pacific Fleet, said in a statement. Remains that may belong to another sailor missing from the McCain were found by the Royal Malaysian Navy as it assisted the U.S. in waters east of the Straits of Malacca and Singapore, Swift said. &'8220;Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the families of those sailors and the families of our sailors who were injured,&'8221; he said in the statement, issued from Singapore's Changi Naval Base today, where the damaged USS McCain is docked and where the tanker that it collided with is anchored. &'8220;The search-and-rescue efforts continue.&'8221; One of the missing sailors was identified by government officials as Ohio resident Jacob Drake. Drake's cousin, Brandie Roberts, told ABC News that he joined the Navy right out of high school at 17 years old. Roberts described her cousin as a &'8220;hilarious&'8221; and &'8220;ridiculously smart&'8221; person. &'8220;We are all begging for answers and begging he is found safe,&'8221; she said. Drake is engaged, Roberts said. He has plans to marry next summer, The Columbus Dispatch reported. In a statement, Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, offered his support to Drake's family and the U.S. Navy. &'8220;Connie and I are thinking of Jacob’s family during this horrible time and we join Ohioans in praying for Jacob’s well-being and safety,&'8221; Brown said. &'8220;Servicemembers like Jacob represent the very best of our state, and I’m hopeful the divers searching for these brave sailors can find him and bring him home safely.&'8221; Ohio Gov. John Kasich wrote on Twitter that he is &'8220;praying for all, especially Ohio's own Jacob Drake.&'8221; The McCain was heading to Singapore on a routine port visit after conducting a sensitive freedom-of-navigation operation near one of China's man-made islands in the South China Sea, according to the Navy. The destroyer collided with a tanker vessel, the Alnic MC, off the coast of Singapore around 5:20 a.m. local time Monday, the Stealth Maritime Corp. said in a statement. Reports of the damage to the two ships seem to indicate that they were crossing paths or at least attempting to move in different directions at the time of the collision. The McCain's hull received significant damage as a result of the collision, according to the Navy. Photos show what looks like a wide cave on the port side of the ship at the water line. An initial report about the collision indicated that the ship reported a loss of steering three minutes prior to the impact, a U.S. official said. The official notes this was an initial report, and that it’s not clear if this is what led to the collision, as the crew could have taken several evasive maneuvers to avoid a collision &'8212; something crews are trained to deal with. After the collision, adjacent compartments on the McCain —- including crew berth, machinery and communications rooms —- flooded, according to the Navy, which added that a damage-control response prevented the situation from becoming more serious. Ships from multiple countries searched for the missing sailors after the collision. President Trump tweeted that his &'8220;thoughts and prayers&'8221; are with the McCain's sailors. Several politicians on both sides of the aisle echoed his sentiment, including Sen. John McCain. The ship is named for his grandfather John Sidney McCain Sr. and his father, John Sidney McCain Jr. &'8220;Cindy and I are keeping America's sailors aboard the USS John S McCain in our prayers tonight &'8212; appreciate the work of search &'38; rescue crews,&'8221; McCain wrote in a tweet. The collision was hardly an isolated incident for the Navy. It comes only two months after the USS Fitzgerald's collision with a Philippine container ship in the middle of the night off the coast of Japan. Seven U.S. sailors lost their lives in that collision, and last week the Navy relieved the Fitzgerald's commanding officer, executive officer and senior enlisted sailor for mistakes that led to the crash. The USS Lake Champlain, a guided missile cruiser, collided with a fishing boat in the Sea of Japan in May. There were no injuries from that crash. The Navy ship tried to alert the fishing boat before the collision, but it was too late. The USS Antietam, also a guided-missile cruiser, ran aground off the coast of Japan in February, damaging its propellers and spilling oil into the water. John Richardson, the Navy's top admiral, called for an operational pause in the region and &'8220;a deeper look into how we train and certify forces operating in and around Japan,&'8221; after the McCain's collision. &'8220;We'll examine the process in which we train and certify our forces that are deployed in Japan to make sure we're doing all we can to make them ready for operations and war fighting,&'8221; he told reporters. &'8220;This will include but not be limited to looking at operational tempo, trends in personnel, material, maintenance and equipment. It will also include a review of how we train and certify our service warfare community, including tactical and navigational proficiency,&'8221; he said yesterday at a press conference.( MICHAEL EDISON HAYDEN, JULIA [&'].....»»
