Team KiefLy crushes first beach volleyball stint together in BVR

Philippine sports power couple Alyssa Valdez and Kiefer Ravena hit the sandcourts together for the first time in the celebrity match of the Beach Volleyball Republic December Open Sunday at the Sands SM by the Bay. They took home a close 23-21 victory in the one set exhibition match versus Charo Soriano and John Vic De Guzman. KiefLy wins the match, 23-21! @abscbnsports #BVRDecemberOpen — Danine Cruz (@the9cruz) December 16, 2018 Both duos put on a fun show for the fans in attendance as they gave an impromptu dance number before the game. The match itself was also not short of entertaining moments especially when Ravena who is known for being a crafty point guard in the basketball court produced most of the points in the sands. "Nakita naman natin na si Kiefer yung player of the game talaga. Service aces, blocks, and mga spikes," quipped former Ateneo beach volleyball player Valdez. This is Ravena's first time to play beach volleyball competitively and it was made more special because it was with beau Valdez. "Beach volleyball is very underestimated, I never thought it would really be this hard. Of course, we play it for fun every time we're on the beach with family but competitively, it's really different," said the sidelined NLEX Road Warrior after the fun game. "I enjoyed it especially playing with my girlfriend, Alyssa, who's really a beach volleyball player, it was nice to pull up a win tonight kahit nag-eenjoy lang din kami," added Ravena. Both shared that they did not do any solid preparation for the exhibition game in order to just enjoy the moment. "Before going here, nanonood na kami ng highlights ng beach volleyball kasi we never trained together," shared the five-time PVL MVP. "We wanted to come out as unprepared as possible to really enjoy it na lang," added the PBA standout. The Phenom's game versus Soriano and De Guzman is also for a good cause. The proceeds of the event will be donated to Mindanao State College of Sports, Physical Education, and Recreation Academy in Marawi City. "It was nice that I played for the BVR family. It's for a cause and it's one great experience especially knowing you're helping a lot of people," said Ravena.  .....»»

NCAA Season 94 volleyball: San Beda, CSB collide in marquee match

Top title contenders San Beda University and College of St. Benilde cross paths in a marquee battle Monday in the NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Lady Red Spikers put their unbeaten slate and hold of the lead on the line against the Lady Blazers, who are looking to extend their winning run, in their 12:00 noon clash that will air via livestream. San Beda sports a perfect 5-0 win-loss record tied with defending two-time champion Arellano University. Behind the career-high 26 points of Nieza Viray and the 25 markers of Cesca Racraquin, the Lady Red Spikers survived Jose Rizal University’s upset attempt, 17-25, 25-13, 25-9, 21-25, 15-11, last Thursday. San Beda’s grit and composure under pressure, according to Racraquin will be their biggest advantage against the taller but young Lady Blazers.     “Magiging advantage namin, if ever, ay 'yung grit namin as a team. 'Yung pagiging aggressive namin and 'yung service receive namin matibay ‘yan,” she said. CSB is coming off a weeklong break after making short work of Emilio Aguinaldo College, 25-11, 25-20, 25-13, for a 3-1 slate. The Lady Blazers will pin their hopes on Klarisa Abriam, Rachel Austero, Marites Pablo and top playmaker Jewel Lai to extend their hot streak to four. Meanwhile, Lyceum of the Philippines University (1-4) challenges winless Mapua University (0-4) at 2:00 p.m.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Hours after Bruce Springsteen show closes, film drops on Netflix

NEW YORK --- To director Thom Zimny, the key element in his filmed version of Bruce Springsteen's Broadway show was in the star's eyes. TheNetflix documentarymakes its first appearance on the service early in the morning of Dec. 16, hours after the singer's 236th and last performance of "Springsteen on Broadway" at the Walter Kerr Theater. A soundtrack is being released Friday. "I wanted to capture Bruce's eyes in a way that you don't get from being in the theater," he said. "It's another sense of intimacy, another sense of the performance." That focus paid off when cameras caught Springsteen's emotion during an introduction to the song "Long Walk Home," telling of an unexpe...Keep on reading: Hours after Bruce Springsteen show closes, film drops on Netflix.....»»

2018 PBA Draft Baller Breakdown: Rodolfo “Jjay” Alejandro

Another former King Bulldog, Jjay Alejandro has always been known as a scorer. Ever since his days with Malayan College, Jjay could light up the scoreboard, connecting from inside and out; while at the same time making a name for himself as a deadly shooter. While he joined the NU Bulldogs primarily as an outside threat, he improved his scoring in the college ranks year in and year out, averaging almost 17 points per game in his final year. Coincidentally, his final year was played under the mentorship of multi-titled coach, Jamike Jarin, who developed Jjay no longer just as a scorer, but more of a playmaker and leader. Not only was he allowed to play point guard more often, Coach Jamike highlighted his leadership, designating him Team Captain in his senior year.   STRENGTHS Season 80 (his final year) saw Jjay’s usage rate skyrocket, logging an average 33 minutes, scoring 17 points, grabbing 6.4 rebounds, and dishing out 6.7 assists per contest. He also shot close to 40 percent from the field and 27.5 percent from downtown, with almost two 3-pointers a game. Most impressive in my opinion was the emergence of his passing ability, which had been underrated throughout his career. With the ball in his hand more often, Jjay was able to create more opportunities for himself and his teammates by getting into the paint, where he showed a lot of craftiness and composure in traffic. As a result, he more than doubled his assist numbers from season 79. AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT Areas which he will need to improve on as he makes the jump to the PBA are primarily his strength and his defense. While Jjay is a deft pickpocket who can swipe at ballhandlers or play the passing lanes, he will have to hold his own on a nightly basis against stronger and taller guards. That means he’ll have to work on his on-ball defense, whether perimeter or in the post. If he wants to carve out a regular spot in the rotation, he’ll have to play point guard effectively, while polishing his jumper such that he’ll have a quicker release, as defenders are much quicker and smarter in the pros -- think Kevin Alas when he made the jump from college ball. That means tightening his handles, and improving not just his court vision, but his overall control of the game. One thing he’s definitely got going for him though is his ability to make plays in the clutch. Jjay Alejandro has never been known to shy away from big moments, and he will be more than willing to take and make big shots to decide the outcome of a game. That is one thing PBA teams are always on the lookout for.  .....»»
