NCAA: EAC puts huge dent on CSB s playoff hopes

Emilio Aguinaldo College may very well have spoiled the supposed coming-out-party of College of St. Benilde in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament. JP Magullano played the hero anew as the also-ran Generals pulled off a 69-67 upset victory versus the playoff hopeful Blazers on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Magullano scored half of his 14 points in the last five minutes as EAC arrested its seven-game losing skid with its biggest win of the season. “This game is important for CSB, but it is more important for us. Kapag natalo kmai, magiging last kami,” a beaming head coach Ariel Sison said post-game. With the tally tied at 65-all, it was the first-year forward who nailed a floater over the outstretched arms of Clement Leutcheu for what proved to be the go-ahead basket. CSB had four chances to get even once more, or even take the lead, but Leutcheu and Prince Carlos missed all of their four free throws. Then sent to the line, Magullano and Juju Bautista both made good on one of two charities to put EAC ahead, 69-65, with 44.1 ticks to go. Justin Gutang hit a couple of charities to keep the Blazers close, but the Generals’ defense would stand strong for there and forced misses from all of Leutcheu, Gutang, Yankie Haruna, and Prince Carlos. Not long after, they were celebrating a win that hikes their record to 3-11. Magullano wound up with 14 points and nine rebounds while Jerome Garcia also posted a 10-marker, 10-rebound double-double. EAC has already been eliminated, but in the grand scheme of things, its win complicates matters for CSB which fell to 8-6 – now ceding the fourth spot to University of Perpetual Help which took care of business earlier in the day to improve to 9-5. Haruna topped the scoring column for the Blazers with 18 points on top of seven rebounds and three assists. Misfiring from the field with a 25-of-77 clip and from the line with a 14-of-27 mark, however, they now find themselves in a must-win situation if they are to keep up with the Altas. BOX SCORES EAC 69 – Magullano 14, Laminou 13, Garcia 10, Bautista 10, Cadua 8, Mendoza 8, Tampoc 6, Gonzales 0, Bugarin 0, Corilla 0, Neri 0 CSB 67 – Haruna 18, Gutang 16, Carlos 11, Dixon 8, Leutcheu 4, Pasturan 4, Belgica 4, Nayve 2, Naboa 0, Young 0 QUARTER SCORES: 22-15, 39-37, 52-57, 69-67 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Hero or heel, ‘Don Juan’ or hatchet man? ‘Goyo’ the film companion fills in the gossipy gaps

What do we really know about our heroes, such as Gregorio del Pilar? Filipinos grow up with one idea of the boy general as the loyal soldier who gave up his life to cover the rear of a fleeing General Emilio Aguinaldo at the place that's now synonymous to his name, Tirad Pass. But there will be many questions when people go to watch the new film, "Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral." The film is from director Jerrold Tarog and TBA Studios, the people who gave us the groundbreaking, record-breaking 2015 historical film, "Heneral Luna," which made General Antonio Luna a hot topic and made actor John Arcilla a household name. Now, Tarog has brought Del Pilar's story to the big screen, and actor...Keep on reading: Hero or heel, ‘Don Juan’ or hatchet man? ‘Goyo’ the film companion fills in the gossipy gaps.....»»

WATCH: ‘Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral’ full trailer shows a hero will rise during dark times

A new hero is set to rise during the country's darkest times---and his name is General Gregorio del Pilar. Paolo Avelino will carry on fighting for the Philippines as he plays the legendary young general in "Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral," whose full trailer was released Saturday. In the trailer, Del Pilar is seen being looked up to by everyone as he is picked by Emilio Aguinaldo (Mon Confiado) to lead the fight against the Americans. But it appears that he is being called the President's dog who always follows his every order. Another aspect seen was Del Pilar's lady love, portrayed by Gwen Zamora. It is undeniable that the two share a love for each other in the film with their pa...Keep on reading: WATCH: ‘Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral’ full trailer shows a hero will rise during dark times.....»»

History corrected: Church venue of 1st Independence Day Party

ANGELES CITY --- For the first time since 1898, the Holy Rosary Church here has been included in Independence Day celebrations on June 12. The National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) had installed markers stipulating that this old Augustinian church was where the first anniversary of the 1898 declaration of Philippine independence from Spain had been celebrated. Previous accounts erroneously named the Pamintuan Mansion here, where Emilio Aguinaldo stayed, as the venue of the celebration.

Discrepancies and more questions about Luna’s ‘deadly’ P3.2M telegram

Controversy continues to swirl over a telegram sold at auction last week for P3.2 million.   That may seem like a lot of money for a yellowed piece of paper with a missing corner, but this is no ordinary telegram---it was heralded as "The Extremely Historically Important Hen. Luna Telegram from Emilio Aguinaldo summoning him to his death."   Everyone who has seen the blockbuster film "Heneral Luna" is curious to know the mastermind behind Luna's assassination, and this telegram may very well be the smoking gun historians have been looking for.   Or is it?   A noisy minority, including partisans of Emilio Aguinaldo, claim the telegram is fak...Keep on reading: Discrepancies and more questions about Luna’s ‘deadly’ P3.2M telegram.....»»

NCAA Season 94 volleyball: Lady Stags go 2-0

Rookie-laden San Sebastian College moved up for a share of the lead after trouncing Mapua University, 25-23, 25-15, 14-25, 25-23, Friday in the NCAA Season 94 women's volleyball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Nikka Dalisay, one of only three veterans left in head coach Roger Gorayeb's lineup, posted 17 points built on 14 kills, two kill blocks and an ace for the Lady Stags, who improved to 2-0 win-loss record tied with defending two-time champion Arellano University and San Beda University. SSC-R had a scare in the fourth set with the Lady Cardinals threatening to send the game into a decider after gaining momentum in a strong third frame showing, but the Lady Stags were quick to recover to quell Mapua's uprising and seal the one-hour, 35-minute duel. Ashtara Sarmiento scored 11 points while Joyce Sta. Rita had nine markers for SSC-R, which pulled through despite its atrocious 44 errors. "Ang hirap kasi nago-on and off ang laro. Wala eh, lumalabas yung pagkabata," said Gorayeb. "Ang bilis nilang ma-distract. Ang bilis nilang mawalan ng loob." Angelie Mangundayao finished with nine points to pace Mapua, which dropped its second straight game in the season and continued its win drought since 2016. Meanwhile, the Cardinals outlasted the Stags, 19-25, 25-21, 25-20, 24-26, 17-15 to tie their victim at 1-1 card with Jose Rizal University, Emilio Aguinaldo College and San Beda University. Angelbert Navas and Alfredo Pagulong hamered a combined 34 attacks in Mapua's 54 kills to finish with 21 points each. Robbie Pamittan and Nathalian Bunsuan scored 22 and 21 points, respectively, in a lost cause for SSC-R. In juniors play, the Red Robins bested the Staglets, 16-25, 25-20, 25-19, 25-23, for a 1-1 card while dealing SSC-R its second straight defeat.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

No EAC player scored in double figures with Enrica Salud tallying a team-high eight points.

Aguinaldo’s ‘death summon’ to Heneral Luna surfaces

A telegraph dated June 4, 1899, purportedly sent by President Emilio Aguinaldo to Gen. Antonio Luna summoning him to a conference in Cabanatuan, Nueva Ecija, where he would later be killed by Aguinaldo's own men in one of the most controversial episodes in Philippine history, has surfaced and it will be auctioned off by Len Gallery on Dec. 1. The telegraph appears to be the smoking-gun evidence that historians have been looking for to establish that Aguinaldo himself engineered the assassination of Luna by his own Kawit platoon, said writer and Len consultant Lisa Guerrero-Nakpil. The platoon, whose members were Cavite provincemates of Aguinaldo, had an axe to grind against Lun...Keep on reading: Aguinaldo’s ‘death summon’ to Heneral Luna surfaces.....»»
