Keeping score with Jaime Fabregas

Most millennials and TV junkies may only know Jaime Fabregas as the avuncular policeman in "FPJ's Ang Probinsyano," but a quick peek into his IMDb page yields a stellar filmography not only as an actor, but also as a music scorer. He has provided the musical score for such screen gems as Peque Gallaga's "Scorpio Nights" and "Virgin Forest," Chito Roo's "Private Show," Ishmael Bernal's "The Graduates" and Lino Brocka's "Kislap sa Dilim." He first crossed paths with the original Probinsyano, aka Fernando Poe Jr., as scorer of "Batang Quiapo," the Action King's 1986 starrer with Maricel Soriano. He did most of his work as a scorer under Regal Films in the 1980s, he recalled. By...Keep on reading: Keeping score with Jaime Fabregas.....»»

PBA: Macklin lifts Magnolia past Meralco in farewell game

Vernon Macklin couldn't have written a better script for his farewell game for Magnolia in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup. Macklin sank the game-winning free throws with 3.1 seconds left to lift the Hotshots over the Meralco Bolts, 81-79, Friday night at Smart Araneta Coliseum. Macklin capped a 9-0 burst by the Hotshots in the final one minute and 48 seconds and finished with 21 points, 15 rebounds and a block in his last game before leaving for China to play in the National Basketball League. Magnolia coach Chito Victolero lauded Macklin not only for leading the team to its third win in four games but more importantly for his professionalism. "He already has a contract in China b...Keep on reading: PBA: Macklin lifts Magnolia past Meralco in farewell game.....»»

PBA: Macklin makes game-winning free throws in final game for Magnolia

What a way for Vernon Macklin to make his way out of the PBA. Macklin gifted Magnolia one last win in the 2018 Commissioner's Cup, draining the crucial free throws that allowed the Hotshots to take a dramatic 81-79 victory over Meralco Friday at the Big Dome. Tied at 79, Paul Lee found Macklin on the break for a possible game-winner. Macklin almost immediately drew a foul after taking the pass and he ended up making two free throws for the lead with 3.1 seconds to go. In the game's final play on the other end, Chris Newsome failed to complete a perfectly-executed alley-oop and Magnolia won its third straight game of the conference for a 3-1 record. "I'm very proud of V-Mack," head coach Chito Victolero said. "Binigay niya par in lahat. I'm very happy. May contracy na siya sa China pero go-hard pa rin," he added. The Bolts had several opportunities to close the game out but several missed free throws from Arinze Onuaku and a questionable long two from Newsome ended up dooming Meralco. Magnolia certainly took advantage of that as a Mark Barroca free throw made it 77-79 for the Bolts. Paul Lee then eventually tied the game from the line and after Newsome's long miss, Macklin finally regained the lead for the Hotshots. Macklin led the way with 21 points and 15 rebounds for Magnolia while Lee added 20 of his own. Barroca finished with 18 points. The Bolts got 23 points from Onuaku but the hulking import missed 16 of his 21 attempts from the line. Meralco dropped to 3-2 with the loss.   The Scores: MAGNOLIA 81 – Macklin 21, Lee 20, Barroca 18, Reavis 6, Jalalon 6, Ramos 3, Herndon 3, Dela Rosa 2, Brondial 2, Pascual 0, Sangalang 0, Simon 0, Abundo 0. MERALCO 79 – Onuaku 23, Newsome 15, Amer 14, Dillinger 12, Canaleta 7, Caram 4, Baracael 2, Hugnatan 2, Hodge 0. Quarters: 19-16; 34-31; 56-50; 81-79.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

‘Balangay’ recalls glory days of Butuan trade

BUTUAN CITY --- Once again, Butuanons paid homage to boatmen of old, who had tackled the mighty Agusan River on their wooden craft as they ventured into the open sea and traded with nearby empires and kingdoms.   And what better tribute than a boating competition --- the annual Balangay Festival here that officially kicked off on Friday.   The festival, now on its fifth year, features a dragon boat race dubbed "Bugsay Mindanao: Paddle for Peace," with at least 12 teams from all over the country seeing action.   The aim is "to connect us to our own historical pride," said Rev.

Victolero: Magnolia ‘surrendered’ in endgame vs Phoenix

Magnolia coach Chito Victolero rued the endgame blunders that led to the Hotshots' 87-89 demise at the hands of the Phoenix Fuel Masters that spoiled their 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup debut. "It's our fault. We controlled the game, but we gave Phoenix a chance to come back," Victolero said, as the Hotshots lost a 16-point third quarter lead, 62-46. "We controlled the game up to the 46th minute and then, in the two minutes, we surrendered." Matthew Wright drained the go-ahead triple with 3.2 ticks left to give the Fuel Masters the 88-87 lead before Victolero inadvertently called a timeout he did not have, leading to a technical foul being charged to the Hotshots.

Muntinlupa stays alive in MPBL Finals after escaping Batangas in Game 3

Of course, a change of scenery was all Muntinlupa needed to come to life in the Finals of the inaugural Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL) Anta Rajah Cup. Buoyed by their loud and proud faithful inside the Muntinlupa Sports Complex, the Cagers held on for a much-needed 82-77 triumph over heavily favored Batangas on Tuesday. Allan Mangahas fronted the all-out attack with 23 points on top of eight assists and was flanked by Pari Llagas who had 19 markers, six rebounds, five dimes, and two steals. It was also Llagas, along with Dave Moralde, who stood strong in the last 49 seconds to tame their opponents’ uprising and tow the home team to cutting their series deficit to just 1-2 in the best-of-five championship round. At the wrong end of convincing victories by the Athletics in Games 1 and 2, the determination was very much evident for Muntinlupa from the get-go as they scored 12 unanswered points to start this matchup and saw it balloon to a 19-3 lead. Mangahas stayed hot from that point and they looked like they were breezing towards a season-saving win as they were still up by 11, 77-66, with four minutes remaining. Bong Quinto and Paul Varilla weren’t going away that easy, though, and shot the visitors to just down by two, 75-77, with under a minute left. They wouldn’t be able to come any closer, however, as Llagas and Moralde hit back-to-back difficult shots to put the game away for good. Moralde wound up with 10 points and Chito Jaime chipped in 10 markers of his own for the Cagers who may now boast of being the only team to have downed Batangas in the playoffs. They try, and need to, do it once more in Game 4 on Thursday still at the same venue. For the Athletics, Quinto topped the scoring column with 14 points while Lester Alvarez and Varilla also added 13 and 11 markers, respectively. Despite the loss, they remain in the lead in the Finals series and remain the favorites to take home the first-ever MPBL championship......»»
