Ibibigay ko yung best ko, time ko, puso ko -- Barroca

Magnolia guard Mark Barroca is very much pumped-up to don the national colors once again after eight years. So when head coach Yeng Guiao called for the team’s first training session for the sixth and last qualifying window for the 2019 FIBA World Cup, the 32-year old Magnolia Hotshots backcourt star was one of the early players to arrive at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City. Unfortunately, the training session turned into just an orientation with just 10 players showing up and just six including Barroca participating in a quick shoot around.           But it didn’t dampen Barroca’s return as a member of the national team. “Sobrang excited ako makapaglaro dito. Sabi ni coach kanina ‘yung commitment nga sobrang kung meron pang 200 percent na commitment, ‘yun committed ako, so why not?” said Barroca, a pioneer of the then Smart Gilas program. “Bibigay ko talaga ‘yung best (ko), bibigay ko yung time ko dito ngayon na makapaglaro ulit.” Barroca last played for the national team back in 2011 during the FIBA Asia Championship where the country placed fourth.     “Siyempre as a player, lahat ng players gusto mag-national team so ito napili din ako so ibibigay ko yung best ko, yung time ko, yung puso,” said Barroca. “’Di na rin ako nagi-expect na makuha dito pero kinuha nila ako siyempre sobrang saya ko rin sobrang tine-treasure ko ‘yung pagkakuha nila dito sa akin. Alam mo yun, na-pump up ako e na kinuha nila ako,” he added. Barroca was joined by Roger Pogoy, Marcio Lassiter, Gabe Norwood, Troy Rosario, Jayson Castro, June Mar Fajardo, Poy Erram, Raymnond Almazan and Japeth Aguilar. Paul Lee and Scottie Thompson skipped the first training day while naturalized player Andray Blatche has yet to arrive in the country. Back-up naturalized player Christian Standhardinger has recently stated that he’s focused on recovering from knee injury and playing for San Miguel in the ongoing 2019 PBA Philippine Cup. Gilas is preparing for two must-win games against Qatar on February 21 and Kazakhstan on February 25. The national squad will fly to the Middle East on the second week of Ferbuary for a series of tune up matches. Gilas dropped its last two games on nail-biting fashions – against Kazakhstan (92-88) and Iran (78-70) last December. The national team is 1-3 in the last four games, and the two setbacks dropped the Philippines to fourth place with a 5-5 card in Group F behind Australia (9-1), Iran (7-3) and Japan (6-4).   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

UAAP: Adamson scores local blue-chip recruit in 6-5 Aaron Fermin

Aaron Fermin missed out on back-to-back MVPs as his team failed to make the Final Four in his last two years in the NCAA Juniors. Now, the 6-foot-5 big man will be joining an Adamson University side that is locked into contention for the playoffs for the foreseeable future. “Sa Adamson na po ako,” he said. Fermin is the Soaring Falcons’ first big get from the local high school ranks as the likes of Jerrick Ahanmisi and Sean Manganti were recruits from the US. In the 18-year-old’s final season for Arellano High School, he averaged 15.6 points, 16.2 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks. He topped the MVP leaderboard, but did not win the award because they did not advance to the Final Four. That was also the same story in 2017 as he was, head and shoulders, the top individual player in the tournament, showcasing both the physical and mental tools to make an impact on either end. Because the Braves did not make the playoffs, however, he also did not take home the trophy. Now, Fermin will be getting together with sniper Ahanmisi, versatile Simon Camacho, heady Jerom Lastimosa, and steady Koko Pingoy for an Adamson side coming off its best finish in the Franz Pumaren era. Alongside all that young talent, the Nueva Ecija native said learning under coach Franz was the clincher for his commitment to the blue and white. “Siyempre po, pinili ko rito kasi marami akong matututunan kay coach Franz,” he said. Securing the services of Fermin is a big-time beginning to the fresh two-year contract extension Pumaren had just signed last Friday. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
