Schrock, Pagdanganan to receive PSA special honors

Two more outstanding Filipino athletes in Stephan Schrock and Bianca Pagdanganan will be the recipients of special awards from the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA). Schrock will be conferred with the Mr. Football award, while Pagdanganan is going to be the first ever to receive the Ms. Golf title during the SMC-PSA gala night on March 6 at the Centennial Hall of the Manila Hotel. The 33-year-old Schrock and Pagdanganan, 22, join Ms. and Mr. Basketball Jack Animam and Thirdy Ravena, Ms. and Mr. Volleyball Sisi Rondina and Bryan Bagunas, and Coach of the Year Pat Aquino as among those to be honored with special awards by the country’s oldest media organization. For making the country proud with its exceptional performance that netted for the host the overall title of the 30th Southeast Asian Games, Team Philippines was the unanimous choice as the recipient of the coveted Athlete of the Year award. Pagdanganan had her own share in the Filipinos’ successful title drive in the SEA Games as she spearheaded the country’s two-gold romp in golf by winning the women’s individual event and the women’s team event in tandem with Lois Kaye Go. The recipient of the 2018 PSA Athlete of the Year (with fellow golfers Go and Yuka Saso, Hidilyn Diaz, and Margielyn Didal), Pagdanganan also won the Hawkeye El Tigre Invitational in Mexico last year. A gold medal winner in the 2018 Asian Games, the Filipina golfer attended Gonzaga University and later, the University of Arizona, which she helped win the NCAA Division 1 women’s golf championships in the same year. A sports and society major, Pagdanganan turned pro last year. Schrock, meanwhile, will be receiving his second Mr. Football award after winning his first in 2013. The veteran midfielder of Ceres-Negros FC stood as the rock of the Philippine Azkals that is currently on a transition, serving as the captain of the U22 team in the SEA Games that came close to reaching the knockout stage. The Fil-German player was also named by the ASEAN Football Federation as one of the recipients of the AFF Best XI Award during the AFF Awards held in Hanoi, Vietnam. On the domestic front, Schrock led Ceres Negros to a third successive Football League title and steered the team to the ASEAN Zonal semifinals of the AFC Cup. Along with goalkeeper Neil Etheridge, Schrock also spearheaded the Azkals’ campaign in the 2022 FIFA World Cup and 2023 AFC Asian Cup joint qualifiers......»»

PBA: 'Awesome news' as Parks Jr. reaches new deal with TNT

Easily one of the bigger stories of the ongoing PBA offseason was the status of incoming second-year forward Bobby Ray Parks Jr. On Monday, Parks Jr. finally agreed to a new one-year deal to stay with the TNT KaTropa. Pretty much a restricted free agent, Parks Jr. was in negotiations with TNT, which was described to be "95 percent" done as late as last Saturday, Feb. 15. Missing last season's Philippine Cup to complete his ABL duties, Parks Jr. only signed a two-conference contract with Blackwater, the team that picked him second in the 2018 Draft. He was dealt to TNT after one and a half conferences with the Elite. Parks Jr. averaged 18.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 1.4 steals in 32 games during his rookie season. "I'm just thrilled that he signed," TNT active consultant and interim Gilas head coach Mark Dickel said on the Parks Jr. news. "That's great news for us. Awesome news, it'll be great to have the whole team in practice. It's good stuff," he added. With Parks Jr. finally signed, the opportunity to join the Gilas Pilipinas pools also opens for him again. But with the start of the opening window of the 2021 FIBA Asia Cup qualifiers being so close, he'll have to sit it out for now pretty much. "As far as Gilas goes, these guys [players in practice] are 8-9 days in. Maybe we'll be thinking of next window for him [Ray]," Dickel said. — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

FIBA 3x3 Olympic qualifier to push through despite NCoV outbreak scare

The 3x3 basketball Tokyo Olympics qualifier in India will push through as planned despite the scare of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. FIBA 3x3 Event Manager Ignacio Soriano said on Monday that the world basketball governing body will stick with the scheduled qualifier in Bangalore, India slated on March 18 to 22. “It’s a force majeure, we cannot plan something we don’t know what’s gonna happen tomorrow and in the next month or in the next couple of months. So for now the first reaction is to keep the Olympic qualifying tournament in India as it is,” said Soriano, who is in the country to meet with Chooks-to-Go 3x3 league owner Ronald Mascarinas to talk about the league’s 2020 calendar as well as the country’s hosting of the FIBA 3x3 World Tour Manila Masters. Twenty teams will compete for slots in the Olympics’ first-ever staging of 3x3 basketball. The Samahang Basketbol sa Pilipinas is set to announce the six-man line-up of the national squad, which will include at least two players in the PHI top 10 3x3 ranking on Tuesday. The deadline of submission of names was on Monday. “As you know this is an important event for FIBA. This is the first-ever qualifying tournament and it’s a 20 teams per gender whereas only three will qualify to the Tokyo Olympics. It’s our first Olympics and we’re doing our debut,” said Soriano. However, the FIBA official added that there could be some changes in the FIBA Asia Cup set on May 13 to 17 in Changsha, China.   “We’re working already in potentially changing the host city for the FIBA 3x3 Asia Cup that is happening in May,” said Soriano. “We’re working with different hosts but as of now nothing is official.” Soriano welcomed the possibility of the PHI taking over the hosting duties especially with the country’s growing 3x3 basketball following and successful hosting of international events of the sport in the past.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
