PBA: Beermen use late run to survive Northport in quarters

San Miguel will live on to fight another day. The Beermen used one final run to bury Northport Sunday, taking a huge 98-84 win in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup quarterfinals at the Big Dome. Facing elimination against the second-ranked Batang Pier and holding on to a precacious 82-81 lead, San Miguel unloaded a pivotal 16-0 run to put the game out of reach. With the win, the Beermen forced a one-game knockout against Northport set for Wednesday also at the Big Dome.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Seeding never matters for SMB as they close in on semis

Despite facing a Northport team with a twice-to-beat advantage in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup playoffs, San Miguel’s confidence never wavered. As far as the seventh-ranked Beermen were considered, whether they were in a true series or not, they need two wins to advance to the semifinals. They got one Sunday at the Big Dome after escaping elimination with a 98-84 win over Northport. “Nung natalo kami sa Meralco talaga naisip na namin na pupunta kami dito. Hindi namin inisip yung position namin, inisip namin na nasa best-of-3 pa rin kami kailangan namin ng dalawang panalo. Same thing,” Santos said. “Ngayon naka-isa kami, sa Wednesday sana makuha namin yung pangalawa,” he added. The Beermen won big based on the final score but they certainly worked for this one. San Miguel was only up one late, 82-81, and with rookie Robert Bolick heating up for Northport, the Batang Pier were in position to eliminate the Beermen from the mid-season joust. Then the Beermen unloaded a 16-0 blast to put the game out of reach. “Kita naman natin dikdikan, muntik pa kami nung huli,” Arwind said. “Maganda rito, kitang-kita naman na gusto namin manalo. Kaya lang, kung gusto namin na sigurado yung panalo next game, kailangan yung mga top scorer nila ma-stop namin. Malaking bagay yun para sa Wednesday,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Bolick on Northport s do-or-die vs SMB: Papakamatay kami

For the first time in its franchise history, Northport was one of the top two teams at the end of the elimination round and had a twice-to-beat advantage. Only, when the curtain raised in their quarterfinals matchup opposite San Miguel, the Batang Pier were ran out of the court, 84-98. Even so, super rookie Robert Bolick remains upbeat about their chances. "One game lang yan. We'll come back strong," he told reporters post-game. He then continued, "Part of the game talaga. Ganoon talaga." In the eyes of the third overall pick of the 2019 PBA Draft, Northport's breakthrough in the elims was just the insurance they worked hard for in case of a playoff loss like this. "Yun nga ang tinrabaho namin, twice-to-beat, 'di ba? Ganoon talaga. 'Di namin control yun at ang control lang namin is yung laro namin," he said. He then continued, "Sana, Game 2, step up kami." And Bolick has no doubt that he and his teammates will not waste their second chance. "Confident ako sa team namin. Hindi namin ibibigay nang madali to, for sure. We will fight, we will have a dogfight on Wednesday," he said, full of confidence. He then continued, "We worked hard for the second-seed tapos kukunin na lang nang ganoon? No. Papakamatay kami." Indeed, when their do-or-die game rolls along on Wednesday, he has no doubt Northport will rise to the challenge - no matter what their opponents have in store. Asked about getting special attention from the likes of Chris Ross, he answered, "Okay lang. They're just doing their job. Wala naman akong pakialam sa mga ganoon." He then continued, "Kahit rookie ako, hindi papasok sa akin yun. I just play my game kasi kahit anong tactics, part of the game lang yan." And actually, for the ever-competitive 23-year-old, that special attention will only be much more motivation for him. "Hindi nasisira laro ko sa ganoon. Lalo pa nga akong namo-motivate," he said. After all, his time on the big stage and under the bright lights of the NCAA, giving his all for San Beda University, has done nothing but ready him for these moments. "Parang sa NCAA, sanay na ako sa mga ganoon. Trash talk, siko-siko, part of the game yun e," he shared. He then continued, "They're just doing their job and I'm just doing my job to do my best para sa team ko.".....»»

Lowry, Holmes share Open lead as McIlroy leaves with cheers

By Doug Ferguson, Associated Press PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland (AP) — Everyone in the massive grandstand rose to cheer and celebrate a bold performance by Rory McIlroy, who longed for such support and affection on his walk toward his final hole at Royal Portrush in the British Open. Except this was Friday. And now McIlroy can only watch on the weekend as one of his best friends, Shane Lowry of Ireland, goes after the claret jug. Lowry birdied four of his opening five holes on his way to a 4-under 67 and shared the 36-hole lead with J.B. Holmes, who had a 68. Lee Westwood and Tommy Fleetwood were one shot behind. Brooks Koepka and Jordan Spieth were three back. That can wait. This day was all about McIlroy, who kept the sellout crowd on edge as he tried to make the cut after opening with a 79. The roars had the intensity of a final round as McIlroy ran off five birdies in seven holes to brighten a gloomy sky over the North Atlantic. Needing one last birdie, his approach took a wrong turn along the humps left of the 18th green. He made par for a 65. "It's a moment I envisaged for the last few years," McIlroy said. "It just happened two days early." He was disappointed. He was proud of his play. Mostly, though, he said he was "full of gratitude toward every single one of the people that followed me to the very end and was willing me on." "As much as I came here at the start of the week saying I wanted to do it for me, by the end of the round there today I was doing it just as much for them," he said. Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson won't be around, either. It was the first time in 77 majors they have played as professionals that both missed the cut in the same major. Darren Clarke, who honed his game on the Dunluce Links as a junior and now calls Portrush home, missed the cut in a most cruel fashion with a triple bogey on his final hole. And now the first British Open in Northern Ireland since 1951 moves on without them, still with the promise of a great show. Lowry was so nervous he was shaking on the tee when the tournament began Thursday, swept up in the emotion of an Open on the Emerald Isle, and on a course he knows. He gave fans plenty to cheer when he opened his second round with three straight birdies, added a birdie on the fifth and holed a 40-foot birdie putt on No. 10 to reach 10 under, making him the only player this week to reach double figures under par. The cheers were as loud as he has heard. "Just incredible," Lowry said. "You can't but smile, but can't but laugh how it is. There's no point trying to shy away from it. It's an incredible feeling getting applauded on every green, every tee box. I'm out there giving my best, trying to do my best for everyone." He three-putted the 14th, saved par on the next three holes with his deft touch around the greens, and closed with a bogey to fall back into a tie with Holmes, who played earlier in the day and was the first to post at 8-under 134. Holmes won at Riviera earlier this year, and then failed to make the cut in eight of his next 12 tournaments as he battled a two-way miss off the tee and felt so bad that he never thought he'd recover. But he did enough in Detroit three weeks ago to regain some confidence, and he has been in a groove at Portrush. "You can have that great round and that day where everything goes right. But it's nice to get two rounds in a row," Holmes said. "It shows a little consistency. And two days in a row I've hit the ball really well and putted well." Fleetwood and Westwood, two Englishmen at different stages in their careers, each had a 67 and will play in the group ahead of Lowry and Holmes. Westwood is 46 and can make a case as the best active player without a major considering his status — a former No. 1 in the world and on the European Tour — and the number of near misses in the majors, such as Muirfield and Turnberry at the Open, Torrey Pines in the U.S. Open and Augusta National when Mickelson out played him in 2010. Is it too late? Westwood wasn't willing to look that far ahead. "There's too much ground to cover before Sunday night," Westwood said. "There's a long way to go in this tournament. I've never felt under that much pressure, to be honest. You lads write about it. I've always gone out and done my best. If it's going to happen, it's going to happen, and if it doesn't, it doesn't." The experience of winning majors was behind them. Justin Rose had a 67 and was two shots behind, along with Cameron Smith of Australia and Justin Harding of South Africa. Another shot back was a group that included Koepka, who has won three of the last six majors. He was in a tie for eighth, the 16th time in his last 17 rounds at the majors he has ended a round in the top 10. Koepka wasn't happy with much about his 2-under 69, calling it "a little bit disappointing," perhaps because he played in dry weather and only a mild wind. "But at the same time, I'm close enough where I play a good weekend, I'll be in good shape," he said. Spieth hasn't quite figured out how to get the ball in play more often — too many bunkers on Thursday, too much high grass on Friday. But that putter is not a problem, and it carried him to a collection of mid-range birdie and par putts for a 67. "I'm in contention. I feel good," Spieth said, winless since his Open title at Royal Birkdale two years ago. "I feel like if I can continue to improve each day, hit the ball better tomorrow than I did today, and better on Sunday than Saturday, then I should have a chance with how I feel on and around the greens." Graeme McDowell, born and raised in Portrush, played well enough to make the weekend. He finished with four straight pars for a 70 to make the cut on the number at 1-over 143, and felt the pressure of sticking around for the home crowd. Woods, meanwhile, began this major championship season as the Masters champion, ended it as a mystery. He missed the cut in two of the next three majors, and never seemed fully fit or engaged at the British Open. He was 3 under for his round through 11 holes with hopes of making it to the weekend, but he had no more birdies and finished with two bogeys for a 70 to miss by five shots. "I'm going to have my hot weeks. I'm going to be there in contention with a chance to win, and I will win tournaments," Woods said, facing the reality of a 43-year-old who has gone through eight surgeries on his knee and back. "But there are times when I'm just not going to be there.".....»»

FIBA: No questions about Andray Blatche’s fitness for World Cup

As always, Andray Blatche will play a big role for Gilas Pilipinas for an upcoming FIBA tournament, this time being the 2019 World Cup in China. As always, his overall fitness will dictate just how well he’ll play. Finally in Manila, Blatche has had a week’s worth of practice with the national team. Andray is moving well and everything, but it’s quite obvious that he’s not at peak condition just yet. However, the national team is not worried about that too much. Blatche has a good six weeks of straight training to get himself in top shape. “Of course we still need to get him into game shape,” head coach Yeng Guiao said of Blatche. “But he’s been doing extra work. He’s actually been practicing by himself and also trying to get extra practice time with Rain or Shine and sa Monday, sa NLEX. There’s plenty of time to get him in shape,” he added. Blatche’s arrival has also added a big boost to Gilas’ regular practices. As a longtime member of the national team, Blatche has turned into one of the most crucial pillars for Gilas and his presence has been nothing but positive. “Wala naman siyang problem sa integration, because he’s been here and he knows 90 percent of the players,” Guiao said of Blatche. “There’s no problem with chemistry or attitude. They all get along together,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8  .....»»

NCAA 95: Squires take down formerly undefeated Jr. Altas

STANDINGS San Beda 3-0 LPU 2-0 Perpetual 2-1 JRU 2-1 Arellano 1-1 San Sebastian 1-1 CSB-LSGH 1-1 Letran 1-3 Mapua 0-2 EAC 0-3 Colegio de San Juan de Letran has, at long last, barged into the win column in the NCAA 95 Juniors Basketball Tournament. Not only that, the Squires did it while also sending a statement, toppling erstwhile unbeaten University of Perpetual Help, 70-52, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Gilas Pilipinas Youth forward Joshua Ramirez turned in his best game in blue and red with a 26-point, 10-rebound double-double on top of four assists while CJ Saure also added 18 markers and five boards of his own for their breakthrough win after four games. Letran took control right from tip-off and after a tight first quarter, dominated the middle periods, 38-20. It didn't hurt them either that the Jr. Altas' super scorer Emman Galman was attending to a personal matter and missed his first game of the tournament. Still, that didn't change the fact that the Squires outworked their opponents with 86 attempts from the field as compared to the other side's 65. For Perps, Shawn Orgo topped the scoring column in place of Galman with 14 points. Unable to get into their groove, however, they suffered their first setback after back-to-back wins over defending champion Mapua High School and last year's runner-up College of St. Benilde-La Salle Green Hills. BOX SCORES LETRAN 70 - Ramirez 26, Saure 18, Argente 8, Tibayan 7, Umali 4, Santiago 4, Romenez 3, Miranda 0, Cauguiran 0, Cabal 0, Omega 0, Delas Alas 0, Flauta 0 PERPETUAL 52 - Orgo 14, Escalante 10, Berwite 6, Manuel 6, Galoy 4, Nunez 4, Gelsano 4, Belazuela 2, Cuevas 2, Dela Cruz 0, Kawamura 0, Angeles 0, Ignacio 0, Banaticla 0 QUARTER SCORES: 15-10, 29-15, 53-40, 70-52 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
