Balanced FEU sinks LPU for first time in Filoil Preseason

Far Eastern University rode a huge wave of team effort to drown Lyceum of the Philippines University in an 86-78 decision, Monday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Brandrey Bienes led three other teammates in double-digits with 14 points built on perfect 4-of-4 shooting from deep as the Tamaraws became the first team to put a blemish on the Pirates' record after four games in the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. Wendell Comboy, Alec Stockton, and Xyrus Torres all had 13 points of their own while new floor leader L-Jay Gonzales did it all with eight points, eight assists, and five rebounds. FEU charged to a strong start and built up a 28-13 lead after the opening salvo which they successfully protected in the face of repeated challenges by LPU. In the process, the Tamaraws scored their first win after back-to-back losses in the preseason tournament. For the Pirates, Jaycee Marcelino topped the scoring column with 17 points. Meanwhile, Colegio de San Juan de Letran bounced back with a 79-77 victory versus Emilio Aguinaldo College. Allen Mina topped the scoring column while Larry Muyang posted a 10-marker, 11-rebound double-double as the Knights improved to 4-1. With the loss, the Generals dropped to 1-2.

Mapua, EAC barge into win column in Filoil Preseason

Mapua University and Emilio Aguinaldo College both scored convincing victories, Thursday at Filoil Flying V Centre to break through into the winner's circle of the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. The Cardinals routed Arellano University, 85-65, on the back of a powerful double-double Warren Bonifacio. Bonifacio, their incoming second-year versatile forward, was tireless en route to 14 points and 14 rebounds in just 24 minutes of play. Fellow big men Christian Bunag and Denniel Aguirre brought the backup with 14 and 13 points, respectively, as they got off to a strong 25-4 opening frame and never looked back en route to their first win in four games. Meanwhile, the Generals dug deep and stood strong in the face of a late rally from National University to come away with a 77-73 decision. Jethro Mendoza top-scored with 20 points and five rebounds while JP Maguliano also added 12 markers and five boards of his own for the San Marcelino-based squad which evened its standing to 1-1. For the Chiefs (0-2), returning guard Kent Salado showed the way with 17 points while for the Bulldogs, Dave Ildefonso fronted the effort with 17 markers, six rebounds, and four assists.

Slasher Cyril Gonzales stays in NU; two Bullpup bigs headed to NCAA

Nazareth School of National University continues to be a producer of capable collegiate basketball players. The Bullpups - fresh off championships in the UAAP Juniors, NBTC, and Palarong Pambansa - have just produced three players who are being eyed to lend a hand to different Seniors squads. Cyril Gonzales, their starter at guard, is staying in Sampaloc and is now seeing time for the Bulldogs in the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. Gonzales is a fearless slasher standing at 6-feet. He posted per game counts of 8.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 1.6 steals in 21 minutes of play in their championship run in the UAAP Jrs. last year. Meanwhile, two big men who once helped NU slow down Kai Sotto will now help two NCAA teams. Pao Javillonar, a 6-foot-6 enforcer, will now patrol the paint for College of St. Benilde while 6-foot-4 raw prospect Dom Dayrit will now help the rebuild in Emilio Aguinaldo College. Javillonar normed 3.2 points and 3.8 rebounds in 9.8 minutes of play and Dayrit averaged 3.1 markers and 3.8 boards also in 9.8 minutes of play. The three players continue NU's recent history of sending up capable collegiate basketball players to different teams both in the UAAP and the NCAA. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Rookie Fermin shines bright in Adamson s winning start to Filoil Preseason

Adamson University's prized recruits made an immediate impact just as stalwarts Jerrick Ahanmisi and Papi Sarr did their thing in their 89-65 rout of overmatched Emilio Aguinaldo College in the two teams' opener in the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament, Tuesday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Aaron Fermin, a 6-foot-5 big man, opened eyes with 21 points, five rebounds, and two blocks in just 19 minutes of play while fellow rookie AP Manlapaz, a 6-foot-2 forward, contributed 12 markers and two steals of his own. Ahanmisi, for his part, scored 17 points on top of three rebounds, three assists, and three steals while Sarr chimed in 11 markers and seven boards. It was an all-out domination from the Soaring Falcons who used a 50-22 tear in the middle periods to blow out their neighbors in San Marcelino. Joem Sabandal and Joshua Yerro, two other prized recruits, then merged for four points, six rebounds, and three assists as Adamson's new faces wasted no time in introducing themselves. That is nothing but good news for a side which had lost team captain Sean Manganti and court general Koko Pingoy. For the Generals, Marwin Taywan was the lone bright spot with 10 points. Meanwhile, Colegio de San Juan de Letran also got its new era off to a winning start by charging through NCAA rival Jose Rizal University, 78-67. Jerrick Balanza showed the way with 25 points as the Knights gifted new head coach Bonnie Tan with a breakthrough win in just their first game in the tournament. Rookie John Delos Santos topped the scoring column for the Heavy Bombers with 16 points.

Lionesses eye Final Four spot playoff

strong>Games Friday: /strong> (The Arena, San Juan) 9:00 a.m. --- San Beda vs. Mapua (m) 10:30 a.m. --- San Beda vs. Mapua(w) 12:00 noon --- Perpetual vs JRU (w) 1:30 p.m. --- Perpetual vs JRU (m)   San Beda College hunts to secure a playoff for a semifinals berth Friday when the Lionesses take on the listless Mapua Lady Cardinals to close their elimination round campaign in the 92nd NCAA women’s volleyball competition at The Arena in San Juan. Totting a 5-3 win-loss record at fourth to fifth spot tied with idle Lyceum of the Philippines University, San Beda puts its season on the line at the 10:30 a.m. clash with the Cardinals, who remain winless in eight games. A win by the Lionesses will not only give the Mendiola-based squad a playoff for a semifinals slot in case of a tie at 6-3 card but will also put San Beda in a good position to advance in the next round with Perpetual Help and LPU facing tough opponents in their remaining assignments. If San Beda hurdles Mapua and the Lady Altas and Lady Pirates absorbing their fourth loss, the Lionesses will get the last semis spot.   In case the Lionesses lose, SBC will have to wish that LPU drops its last game against San Sebastian College and for Perpetual to at least lose one of its last two remaining games for tie at 5-4 that will also force sa playoff for the last semis seat. Unbeaten SSC-R  (7-1) and Season 90 champion Arellano University secured the first two Final Four berths while defending champion College of St. Benilde (6-2) is assured of at least a semis seat playoff. San Beda is coming off a painful straight sets loss at the hands of the Lady Blazers, 25-12, 17-25, 23-25, 19-25, last week and is looking for a bounce back against the Lady Cardinals, who were swept by Emilio Aguinaldo College 18-25, 13-25, 24-26, last Friday. Meanwhile, the Lady Altas fight for survival when they face upset-conscious Jose Rizal University at 12:00 noon. With a 4-3 card, Perpetual can still make it to the Final Four if the Las Pinas-based squad completes a sweep of its last two games starting with the Lady Bombers. The Lady Altas will end the elims on January 25 against Arellano University. Perpetual survived its first test last week with a sweep of LPU, 25-21, 29-27, 25-23. JRU is out of contention with a 3-5 slate but is looking to play the spoiler’s role. In men’s play, San Beda (6-2) attempts to formally advance in the semis to join CSB (7-1) in a clash against Mapua (5-3) at 9:00 a.m. while defending champion Perpetual (6-1) also seeks a Final Four berth in a faceoff with JRU (1-7) at 1:30 p.m.       --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles    .....»»

Lady Altas keep Final Four bid alive in sweep of Lady Pirates

strong>Games Wednesday: /strong> (The Arena, San Juan) 8:30 a.m. --- Arellano vs. LPU (jrs) 10:00 a.m. --- Arellano vs. LPU (m) 11:30 a.m. --- Arellano vs. LPU (w) 1:00 p.m. --- JRU vs Letran (w) 2:30 p.m. --- JRU vs Letran (m)   With its season on the line, University of Perpetual Help survived to fight another day with a 25-21, 29-27, 25-23, win over Lyceum of the Philippines University Friday in the 92nd NCAA women’s volleyball competition at The Arena in San Juan. The Lady Altas improved their record to 4-3 and more importantly fanned the flames their flickering Final Four bid alive to escape an early elimination while snapping the Lady Pirates’ three-game winning streak. “During our practice hind ko na sila pinagalitan. Binigyan ko na lang sila ng motivation. Hindi ko rin binabanggit sa kanila ang mangyayari sa amin (kapag natalo kami) kasi ayokong madagdagan pa sila ng pressure,” said head coach Sammy Acaylar, whose wards are coming off a straight sets loss at the hands of unbeaten and semis-bound San Sebastian College.            “Nakita ko ang heart nila ngayon sa game nila,” added Acaylar, who was appointed as the school’s athletic director last month and recently tapped by Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc, as national men’s team mentor for the 29th Southeast Asian Games in Kuala Lumpur on August. Jamela Suyat led the assault for the Las Pinas-based squad by hammering 17 kills in her 19-point output while Coleen Bravo had a block party with seven blocks in her total of 13 points. Jowie Versoza added 11 markers for Perpetual, which still needs to win its last two elims assignments against eliminated Jose Rizal University on January 20 and Arellano University on January 25 to secure at least a playoff for a semis berth.    LPU absorbed its second loss in seven games.  Christine Miralles and skipper Cherilyn Sindayen, who committed a crucial service error in the last play that sealed the Lady Pirates’ doom, scored 10 points each. LPU still has Arellano and SSC-R in its list of assignments. In the other women’s result, Emilio Aguinaldo College captured its first win in eight outings as the Lady Generals buried Mapua deeper down the cellar, 25-18, 25-13, 26-24. Ladeisheen Magbanua finished with 18 while Jaylene Lumbo got 13 for EAC, which will close its campaign on January 23 against Letran (1-6). The Lady Cardinals are winless in eight games and will end their season in a clash with San Beda College on January 20.  In men’s division, Mapua (5-3) kept its Final Four bid alive with a 25-21, 25-22, 14-25, 25-15, win over listless EAC (0-8).          --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

Lady Pirates set sight on at least a semis berth playoff

strong>Games Friday: /strong> (The Arena, San Juan) 8:30 a.m. --- EAC vs. MIT (m) 10:00 a.m. --- EAC vs. MIT (w) 11:30 a.m. --- LPU vs. Perpetual (w) 1:00 p.m. --- LPU vs Perpetual (m) 2:30 p.m. --- LPU vs Perpetual (jrs)   With unbeaten San Sebastian College clinching the first Final Four seat, Lyceum of the Philippines University attempts to draw closer to one of the remaining three berths Friday in a showdown with the desperate Perpetual Help Lady Altas in the 92nd NCAA women’s volleyball competition. Riding the crest of a three-game winning run, the Lady Pirates face the Lady Altas in the scheduled 11:30 a.m. clash to secure at least a playoff for a semis spot at The Arena in San Juan. Coming off a straight-set, 25-20, 25-23, 25-20, demolition of listless Emilio Aguinaldo College last week, the Intramuros-based squad parades a 5-1 win-loss slate and is on the right track for its bid to advance in the next round for the first time since 2011. LPU is on a high with its winning streak sparked by a huge upset of College of St. Benilde and head coach Emil Lontoc is confident the Lady Pirates can take one against Perpetual. “Sa tingin ko kaya naming silang tapatan gaya nu’ng laro namin sa Benilde kasi halos pareho ang laro ng dalawang ‘yan eh,” he said. “Kapag gumanda ang receive namin, gumanda ang atake lalaban kami sa kanila. Saka ang Perpetual hindi na rin ganoon (kaganda) ang laro.” But the Lady Altas will surely show a different form after sliding to 3-3 slate. The Las Pinas-based squad suffered a 22-25, 13-25, 13-25, beating at the hands of SSC-R last Wednesday, putting Perpetual in a dangerous spot of missing the cut for a Final Four seat. Another loss will eliminate Perpetual from the semis race. In the non-bearing game, tied at 0-7 slates EAC and Mapua collide to barge in the win column in their scheduled 10:00 a.m. match. Meanwhile, the Generals (0-7) faceoff with the Cardinals (4-3) at 8:30 a.m. while LPU (3-3) meets Perpetual (4-1) in the 1:00 p.m. match in the men’s division. The lone juniors play is between unbeaten LPU (4-0) and defending champion Perpetual (4-0) at 2:30 p.m.   ---   Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles   .....»»

SSC-R targets at least a semis playoff

strong>Games Wednesday: /strong> (The Arena, San Juan) 8:30 a.m. --- AU vs. CSB (jrs) 10:00 a.m. --- AU vs. CSB (m) 11:30 a.m. --- AU vs. CSB (w) 12:30 p.m. --- Perpetual vs. SSC-R (w) 2:00 p.m. --- Perpetual vs. SSC-R (m) 3:30 p.m. --- Perpetual vs. SSC-R (jrs)     Unbeaten San Sebastian College goes for at least a playoff for a semifinals spot on Wednesday when the Lady Stags return to action in the 92 sund /su NCAA women’s volleyball competition at The Arena in San Juan. Carrying an immaculate 6-0 win-loss record, SSC-R looks to remain on top of the standings and plant a foot to the next round when it takes on a dangerous Perpetual Help side in the scheduled 12:30 p.m. clash. Behind reigning back-to-back Most Valuable Player winner Grethcel Soltones, who is averaging 16.16 points per game, the Lady Stags won its first six games including a straight sets victory over the Emilio Aguinaldo College Lady Generals last December 6 before the long holiday break. SSC-R is just three wins away from sweeping the elimination round that will propel them straight to the Finals with a thrice-to-beat advantage. In this scenario, the top three teams after the elims will play in a stepladder semis format with the no. 2 team enjoying a twice-to-beat advantage.    But Lady Stags head coach Roger Gorayeb is concerned with the mentality of his team heading into the crucial stretch of the elims with Perpetual, Lyceum of the Philippines and defending champion College of St. Benilde standing in their way.    “’Yung kasing kilos nila kung oobserbahan ko ngayon, ‘yang kilos nilang ‘yan hindi yan pang-straight (elims sweep) na panalo,” said Gorayeb. “Wala, ang dami pa nilang butas.” The mentor added that facing Perpetual will serve as an acid test for his wards. “Ang iniisip ko ngayon ay yung laro ng team ko at hindi yung laro ng iba,” he said. “Masusubukan kami sa huling tatlong laro namin.” The Lady Altas after a sluggish start won three games in a row for a 3-2 slate with Lourdes Clemente, who is averaging 10.6 points per outing, leading the way. Perpetual is coming off a 29-27, 25-15, 25-21 win over Letran last December 7. Meanwhile, CSB is also gunning for a semis spot playoff against streaking Arellano University at 11:30 a.m. The Lady Blazers sit a solo second with 6-1 slate ahead of the Lady Chiefs and idle LPU, who are tied at third and fourth spots with identical 5-1 cards. In men’s play, the league-leading Blazers (6-1) and Chiefs (5-1) face off at 10:00 a.m. while the Altas (4-1) and Stags’ showdown is slate at 2:00 p.m. In the juniors play, AU (3-2) and CSB (0-4) clash in the 8:00 a.m. opener while Perpetual (3-1) and SSC-R (0-4) collide in the 3:30 p.m. match.     ---       Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles        .....»»

Isi-shave (ang buhok) kapag natalo pa kami -- Lady Blazers

The College of St. Benilde players sported a new look. Nope, the girls of coach Macky Carino aren’t following a new hairstyle trend for 2017. The reigning champion Lady Blazers are using it as a motivation for the 92nd NCAA women’s volleyball. Some sort of self-flagellation.  Players of the Taft-based squad decided to cut their hair short as punishment after their five-set loss to Lyceum of the Philippines University last month.   “Kasi parang sugal nila ‘yun eh. Kapag natalo ng isang game putol ng buhok sila-sila,” said Carino Thursday after CSB’s 12-25, 25-17, 25-23, 25-19, win against the San Beda Lionesses at The Arena in San Juan. Coming into the season, the Lady Blazers set a goal to sweep the tournament in their bid for a back-to-back.   “Usapan na nila ‘yun kasi ang target namin this season, kami-kami lang, sweep talaga,” Carino said. “So kapag ‘di namin na-sweep at natalo ng isa, putol ng buhok.” Carino welcomed the decision of the team, seeing it as sign of unity and dedication among his players.  “Sila-sila kasi ang nag-uusap eh. Nagulat na lang ako a few days after ng game namin against LPU pagbalik ko putol na ang buhok nila,” he said. “So sabi ko at least nakikita ko na buo ang team ko. Sila-sila gumagawa ng paraan para ma-motivate.” Third-year middle Ranya Musa, who had 11 points, explained that it was the decision of the whole team to trim their hair each time they drop a match. The Lady Blazers had their first trip to the salon a few days after CSB dropped a 22-25, 26-24, 18-25, 25-20, 10-15, decider against LPU. They sported a shoulder-length haircut in their bounce back win against Emilio Aguinaldo College but then decided to crop their tops a bit more during the holiday break.         “Actually usapan namin ng teammate namin na si Rachel Austerio na ‘pag hindi namin na-sweep ay magpapagupit kami ng short hair, super short hair,” said Musa, who had to part with her long flowing hair. “Kasi kaming lahat na babae ayaw talaga naming magpa-super short hair. So nung natalo kami nada-down kami kasi nga natalo kami and then ‘yun parang nagpa-short hair kami. Doon naming na-boost ang confidence namin para manalo kami sa EAC at ngayon sa Beda.” The Lady Blazers, now at solo second with a 6-1 card, still have two games left in the elimination round against Arellano University on Wednesday before the Finals rematch against unbeaten San Sebastian College (6-0) on January 25. But what will happen if ever they lose again?    “Ewan ko kung ano ang gagawin nila kapag natalo pa kami ng isang game,” said Carino. Musa answered, “Isi-shave na namin kapag natalo pa po kami, hindi ko alam? Magsi-shave daw ‘yung next step kapag natalo kami, so dapat hindi.” So, good luck girls.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles   .....»»

LPU demolishes EAC in NCAA volley

strong>Games Thursday: /strong> (The Arena, San Juan) 8:30 a.m. --- CSB vs SBC (jrs) 10:00 a.m. --- CSB vs. SBC (m) 11:30 a.m. --- CSB vs SBC (w) 1:00 p.m. --- Mapua vs Letran (w) 2:30 p.m. --- Mapua vs Letran (m)   Lyceum of the Philippines University opened the new year with a sweet sweep of the 92nd NCAA volleyball competition playdate against Emilio Aguinaldo College Wednesday at The Arena in San Juan. The Intramuros-based squad emerged victorious on all fronts highlighted by a shocker dealt by the Junior Pirates to the erstwhile unbeaten Brigadiers in the high school play to start the day. The Junior Pirates banked on the 20-point production of Valeriano Sasis to put a dent on the Brigadiers' record with a 25-19, 25-23, 22-25, 25-22, victory for its fourth straight win in as many outings. LPU snapped EAC’s five-game winning run. The Lady Pirates, on the other hand, rolled to their third straight victory for a share of the second spot with a 25-20, 25-23, 25-20, demolition of the listless Lady Generals. Picking up from where they left off last month before the holiday break, LPU improved to 5-1 win-loss record tied with idle defending champion College of St. Benilde. Skipper Cherilyn Sindayen, Czarina Orros and Christine Miralles logged in 12 points each for LPU. La Rainne Fabay added 10 markers for the Lady Pirates, who uncorked 40 attack points with Sindayen and Orros hitting 10 each. Despite their easy win, head coach Emil Lontoc was far from satisfied with the way his players’ performance. “Kailangan pa naming mag-step up pa kasi yung nakikita namin sa ensayo hindi namin nagagawa rito. Kanina ang pangit ng receive namin,” said Lontoc, whose squad is on the right track to advance to the semifinals for the first time since 2011. “Siguro kanina masyadong kumpiyansa sila na alam nilang hindi gaanong malakas ang kalaban,” he added.

Arellano, LPU seek a share of the second spot

strong>Games Wednesday: /strong> (The Arena, San Juan) 8:30 a.m. --- EAC vs LPU (jrs) 10:00 a.m. --- EAC vs. LPU (m) 11:30 a.m. --- EAC vs LPU (w) 1:00 p.m. --- Arellano vs JRU (w) 2:30 p.m. --- Arellano vs JRU (m)   Action in the 92nd NCAA volleyball competition resumes on Wednesday at The Arena in San Juan. Arellano University looks to extend its winning streak to five when the Lady Chiefs take on the struggling Jose Rizal University in the women’s play at 1:00 p.m. Behind the steady games of Jovielyn Prado and Rialen Sante, the Lady Chiefs won four straight after dropping its opening game against unbeaten San Sebastian College. Arellano is coming off a straight sets win over San Beda Lionesses, 25-22, 25-22, 25-14, almost a month ago for a 4-1 win-loss record tied with Lyceum of the Philippines University Lady Pirates, who will open 2017 with a clash with listless Emilio Aguinaldo College Lady Generals in the scheduled 11:30 a.m. match. A win by the Lady Chiefs and the Lady Pirates will move them at second place tied with defending champion College of St. Benilde (5-1) behind league-leading Lady Stags (6-0). The Lady Bombers, on the other hand, are on a three-game skid for a 2-4 slate and are on the brink of elimination in the race for a semis spot. JRU absorbed a 15-25, 10-25, 23-25, beating at the hands of SSC-R last December 12. Meanwhile, LPU is on a two-game roll after a big five-set upset over the Lady Blazers and a straight sets dismantling of Mapua to end 2016. The WNCAA multi-titled squad, which joined the league five seasons ago, is just a few steps closer to breaking into its first-ever Final Four appearance. The Intramuros-based Lady Pirates will bank on Cherilyn Sindayen, who is averaging 14.8 points per game, Czarina Orros and La Rainne Fabay against the Lady Generals, who are winless in six games. EAC is at the cellar with other eliminated teams Mapua (0-6) and Letran (0-5). In the men's game LPU takes on EAC at 10:00 a.m while Arellano U face-off with JRU. In the lone juniors game the Brigadiers collide with the Junior Pirates at 8:30 a.m.        ---  Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles          .....»»
