Korea still united despite first Asian Games loss

A joint Korean women's basketball team recorded their first loss at the Asian Games on Friday but their coach insisted the players have put aside their national identities and are determined to win as a united squad. A 200-strong army of Korean fans -- sporting T-shirts bearing the unified Korean flag and the slogan "One dream, one Corea" -- cheered on the team, fresh from a thunderous win against hosts Indonesia on Wednesday. But the drums and chants were in the end not enough and the team went down to Taiwan 87-85 in their second league encounter. Nevertheless, Korea's assistant coach Ha Sook-rye told AFP there is a feeling of togetherness among the players. "Everyt...Keep on reading: Korea still united despite first Asian Games loss.....»»

Some PH athletes to miss Asian Games opening parade

JAKARTA---A huge chunk of the 272-strong Philippine delegation arrived in this version of Asia's Big Apple on Friday, but some athletes will be missing what many consider to be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to join the parade of athletes that will open the 18th Asian Games Saturday night. It's duty to country first, before anything else. The women's volleyball team, back in the Games for the first time in 36 years, will forego its chance to march in front of close to 100,000 fans at Bung Karno Stadium here as it needs to buckle down to serious work with a match with bitter Southeast Asian region rival Thailand up on Sunday. "We need this practice because our game on Sunday will be...Keep on reading: Some PH athletes to miss Asian Games opening parade.....»»

Duterte vows to support new members of Hugpong ng Pagbabago

        DAVAO CITY---"Coalesce with PDP-Laban but stay with your mother unit," President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday told over 6,000 new members of Hugpong ng Pagbabago, a regional political party founded by his daughter Mayor Sara Duterte, which continue to attract new members from different political parties nationwide.   The President admitted that the political party, which had carried his platform when he ran for president in the last elections, never grew very strong because of (lack of) money.   "The grouping of the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino...

How Sarah sees herself as a mother: I want my kid to be strong; I won’t be very strict

  Sarah Geronimo's journey to superstardom has been nothing but arduous---and it didn't come overnight. But, the so-called Popstar Royalty is appreciative of the lessons she learned from all her hard work as a child actress (she was one of the precocious kids in 1995's "Sarah, Ang Munting Prinsesa") and note-busting teen sensation ("Star for a Night," where she was declared its big winner), because they help solidify her reign as her generation's Nora Aunor or Sharon Cuneta. If you still doubt how remarkably Sarah has matured as a singer-actress, you must have missed watching her maturing thespic chops in Dan Villegas' "The Breakup Playlist," or have yet to listen to th...Keep on reading: How Sarah sees herself as a mother: I want my kid to be strong; I won’t be very strict.....»»

NCAA: James Canlas breakout boosts San Beda to 6-0

Head coach Boyet Fernandez has already stated that James Canlas is the future of San Beda University. The Filipino-Canadian showed on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre that he is raring and ready to contribute now, coming up big in the endgame in the Red Lions’ well-earned 65-54 win over San Sebastian College-Recoletos. Canlas turned in his best game yet with 12 points and the defending champions took their sixth win in as many games in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament. The two teams were going at it for majority of the matchup and the Golden Stags were actually ahead, 52-51, with six minutes remaining before San Beda’s prized rookie scored seven points in their 14-2 finishing kick. Throughout that decisive run, Canlas showed off all his moves, nailing a triple, a midrange jumper, and a couple of charities to take the fight out of Baste. “James really stepped up tonight. Luckily, we were able to make our shots in the fourth after missing a lot in the first three,” head coach Boyet Fernandez said. Javee Mocon accounted for the other seven points in that finishing kick and wound up with a 16-point, 12-rebound double-double. Robert Bolick only had six points, none coming in the second half, but made an impact elsewhere with eight rebounds and three assists. “Even though Robert was guarded really well by San Sebastian, he was able to make the pass to get Javee and James open,” coach Boyet said. The Red Lions also had another strong showing from Cameroonian Donald Tankoua with 12 points and 10 rebounds to help the Red Lions stay at solo second. For San Sebastian, Allyn Bulanadi topped the scoring column with 20 points while Michael Calisaan had 15 markers and six rebounds to his name. Without an answer for Canlas, though, they finish the first round with a 3-6 record. BOX SCORES SAN BEDA 65 – Mocon 16, Tankoua 12, Canlas 12, Bolick 6, Doliguez 5, Eugene 4, Presbitero 3, Tongco 3, Oftana 2, Carino 2, Abuda 0, Soberano 0, Cuntapay 0, Nelle 0, Cabanag 0 SAN SEBASTIAN 54 – Bulanadi 20, Calisaan 15, Calma 6, Capobres 4, Dela Cruz 4, Baytan 2, Villapando 2, Are 1, Sumoda 0, Valdez 0, Isidro 0, Desoyo 0 QUARTER SCORES: 18-18, 29-31, 45-46, 65-54 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
