Jaycee Marcelino nabs first NCAA 94 Player of the Week honors

Jaycee Marcelino would be the last person to go down without a fight. With EAC threatening for an upset against the powerhouse Lyceum squad, last season’s Rookie of the Year took it upon himself to avert a meltdown, going down to work in the fourth quarter as he racked 13 of his career-best 24 points in the Pirates’ 106-97 win over the Generals on Friday. “Ayaw ko matalo eh kaya pinag-pursigihan kong magtrabaho sa court para maibalik namin ang lamang namin at manalo kami,” he said, while also collecting eight rebounds, five steals, and two rebounds in the conquest. With those efforts, Marcelino has been cited as the first recipient of the Chooks-to-Go NCAA Press Corps Player of the Week this NCAA Season 94. Not only did the 20-year-old guard average 18.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 3.5 steals in the opening week, but he was also key in leading Lyceum to an unbeaten 2-0 record to gain early leadership this season. Marcelino was as stupendous back in opening weekend, unloading 13 points, five rebounds, four assists, and two steals in the Pirates’ 85-80 win against San Sebastian on Saturday as he perfectly complimented the 20-20 game of Cameroonian center Mike Nzeusseu. He bested fellow Pirate CJ Perez, Perpetual’s Edgar Charcos, Mapua’s Laurenz Victoria, San Beda’s Robert Bolick, and San Sebastian’s Michael Calisaan for the weekly plum awarded by scribes from print and online publications covering the beat. But despite the promising start he’s having, Marcelino knows better not to be satisfied as he expects another tough season ahead for Lyceum. “Yung mga ganitong laro, challenge ito sa amin para alam na namin ang dapat naming gawin pag ganito ulit ang nangyari,” he said......»»

Cignal keeps perfect slate, Petron downs F2 Logistics

Reigning champion Cignal booked a return flight to the semifinals as it clobbered Cocolife in straight sets, 25-21, 25-21, 25-22, in the Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga (PSL) Invitational Conference Saturday at the Muntinlupa Sports Center. Skipper Rachel Anne Daquis got the job done as she spearheaded the HD Spikers to a clean sweep of the preliminaries. Daquis nailed the semis-clinching backrow kill to complete an impressive third-set fightback and finish with 15 points built on 13 attacks, two blocks and seven digs. “Rachel was really very eager to win this game for us. She played in beast mode and carried the team,” said Cignal head coach Edgar Barroga, noting that he fired up his wards by reminding them the importance of the game. “We came in a bit relax because our opponents is already out of contention and then we realized that we cannot afford to lose this game because we might blow our opportunity for outright semifinals.” Meanwhile, Petron bounced back from an upset loss with a morale-boosting 25-16, 21-25, 25-20, 26-24, win over archrival F2 Logistics. Bernadeth Pons led the way for the Blaze Spikers with 16 points while Mika Reyes had 13 markers. Sisi Rondina scattered 11 points in two sets of action, making her presence felt in the tightly fought fourth frame while Aiza Maizo-Pontillas added 10 for Petron, which tied its victim and idle Generika-Ayala, which handed the Blaze Spikers its first loss, with 3-1 slate.         National Pool member Mylene Paat scattered 10 kills and six blocks for 16 points while Mumay Vivas notched six hits and playmaker Acy Masangkay made 21 excellent sets for the HD Spikers, who also drew impressive game from seasoned libero Jheck Dionela. Cignal will take a one-week break while waiting for its foe in the knockout semifinals. After taking the first two sets in convincing fashion, the HD Spikers lost steam in the third set as they trailed the Asset Managers, 11-15. But the HD Spikers used its experience to the hilt as they found their way back to force a neck-and-neck duel until the Asset Managers fired back for a 21-19 cushion. Cignal never wavered with Vivas and Shirley Salamagos providing the clutch blows before Daquis hit the game-winning backrow hit. Barroga also managed to limit the production of her daughter, Gyra Barroga, who had only four points, leaving Denice Tan and Justine Tiu leading the way with eight and seven hits, respectively. The Asset Managers finished fourth in Pool B and will be relegated to the classification battle for seventh to 10th places starting Tuesday......»»
