LOOK: Armed man runs away, reaches for waist, shot dead by cops

CHICAGO, United States --- A man killed by Chicago police had a gun in a holster at his hip and was shot multiple times as he ran away, spun around and reached toward his waist, according to footage released Sunday from an officer's body-worn camera. Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said it's the quickest he has ever ordered such video released and that he hoped to dispel rumors that Harith Augustus, 37, was unarmed. He also hoped that making the 30-second clip public before a planned protest would prevent another violent confrontation between residents and officers. Protesters angry about the killing Saturday took to the streets in a city that's struggled with police shooti...Keep on reading: LOOK: Armed man runs away, reaches for waist, shot dead by cops.....»»

MPBL: Parks Jr. flirts with quadruple-double as Manda destroys Pasig

Mandaluyong did not take long to show just how hungry it was for its first-ever winning streak in the 2018 Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League. Rampaging to a 16-0 start, the El Tigre buried Pasig in a hole it could never get out of for a 98-55 demolition job on Thursday at the Blue Eagle Gym in Quezpn City. Ray Parks Jr. opened the floodgates and the rest of his teammates in the starting five only followed suit. It wasn’t just on offense that Mandaluyong was on-point from the get-go, however, as it did not allow a single basket for the first five minutes. Their lead would only balloon into as big as 50. With the game already decided, head coach Mac Cuan decided to rest key cogs Parks Jr. and Prince Rivero for the final frame. In their place, Kapamilya star Xian Lim was sent in and made good on his first-ever basket, a three from the top of the key early in the fourth. He wound up with six points, six rebounds, and one block. Still, it all wouldn’t have been possible if not for Parks Jr.’s brilliance. In just 23 minutes of action, he tallied a triple-double of 20 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists. In fact, three steals more and we would’ve had a quadruple-double in the El Tigre’s second straight win following a season-opening loss. It wasn’t meant to be, however, as Cuan decided against putting him on the floor for too long. Despite the big win, though, Mandaluyong are nothing but confident they could do even better. For the Pirates, Bernzon Franco showed the way with a 15-point, 11-rebound double-double. They remain winless in three games. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

It s a dream come true -- Kapamilya actor Xian Lim on MPBL debut

Kapamilya actor Xian Lim flexed his muscles and showed off his sculpted biceps after scoring over two defenders early in the fourth quarter. Lim’s Mandaluyong squad was already ahead by a mile when he scored the last of his six points but his basket was enough to energize the crowd inside the Blue Eagle gym at the Ateneo de Manila University campus going as the El Tigre ripped apart the Pasig Pirates, 98-55, in the 2018 MPBL Datu Cup Thursday night. The hunky heartthrob cherished his debut for Mandaluyong where he played alongside hardcourt stars Ray Parks and Prince Rivero, calling it a ‘dream come true’ as it brought back his interest to play competitive basketball – the very reason why he decided to come back to the Philippines. “It’s a dream come true para sa akin,” said the 6-foot-1 Lim. “Ito ang dahilan kung bakit ako pumunta from the States to the Philippines, to play basketball for UE along with  (JR) Alabanza kaya nakakatuwa na nag-reconnect kami.” Lim was a part of University of the East’s Team B a few years back but never made it into the school’s main team in the UAAP as he shifted his career into showbiz. Basketball runs in the veins of Xian, whose father Godofredo Lim Uy played for UE in the 80’s, and he’s thankful for the opportunity.      “Napakagandang opportunity ng MPBL especially for everyone, all the Filipinos who want to play basketball to be given a chance,” he said. “Siyempre mahirap (ang level of play). Nirerespeto ko ang mga ‘to eh, napapanood ko lang ang mga ito sa TV pero sabi nga ni coach Mac (Cuan) we have to respect the game, we have to respect all the players and we have to hustle hard,” Lim added. Lim scored his first point in the first half from a split in the free throw line. Fielded back in late in third quarter, Lim uncorked a booming top of the key three-pointer over an outstretched arm of a Pasig defender. He followed it up with strong drive at the hoop off an offensive rebound, twisting in the air and finding a crease to slice through defense of Pasig’s Martin Gozum and Kojack Melegrito at the fourth. Lim celebrated his basket with some swag, much to the delight of the screaming fans. Lim logged in 15 minutes of action, pulling down six rebounds and swatting away a shot.            “Unti-unti na po (nakokondisyon). Araw-araw nagpa-practice, napapagalitan nga lagi ni coach Mac pero to become a better player naman po,” he said. Lim also liked that his basketball career made him learn the importance of discipline in time management both in hoops and in showbiz. “Sa pelikula naman po nagagawan naman ng paraan. Nagiging flexible naman sila sa schedule,” he said. “Sobra (ang nagiging disiplina ko sa schedule) dahil iba po ang disiplina ng player. Kapag sinabing seven o’clock ang practice hindi pwedeng nine o’clock dumating. It’s a whole other discipline po sa basketball.” Lim is now looking forward to Mandaluyong’s game against Marikina – a squad that parades another Kapamilya actor Gerald Anderson. “Pinag-uusapan namin yun noong isang araw ang sabi ko, ‘Bro kailan tayo maglalaro? Wala pa tayong schedule,’” said Lim. “Pero parehong kaming nangangamba kasi all the other players we’re playing with napakagaling and siyempre for me and Gerald to get playing time, si Gerald naman he’s a really good basketball player. Pero for me and him to get playing time, nilalakasan na lang po namin ang dasal namin kay Lord.”     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Ateneo tops San Beda to take Filoil Preseason crown

For the third year in a row, there has been a clean sweep of the Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. And just like in 2017, the 2018 edition of the tournament has seen one sweeping squad get replaced by another. Claiming control from the get-go on Saturday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, Ateneo de Manila University didn’t give any chances to now dethroned champion San Beda University for a convincing 76-62 victory. The Blue Eagles scored the first basket and seized the lead right from tip-off. “We gotta give credit to the players. We didn’t really have practices so it was all verbal,” coach Sandy Arespacochaga said post-game. Still, the Red Lions were only behind by four after the opening salvo until Ivorian reinforcement Angelo Kouame imposed his will down low and fueled Ateneo’s 26-11 rush that mounted a 45-26 lead. San Beda would not be able to threaten from that point. With that, the UAAP champions proved that they were the top team in the tournament. Kouame finished with 15 points, 16 rebounds, and three blocks en route to being hailed as the Tournament MVP. “We’re very happy for him individually. We’d like to see him continue to improve,” Arespacochaga said. Fellow Mythical team member Thirdy Ravena contributed seven points, two rebounds, and two assists while Jolo Mendoza and Raffy Verano also added nine markers each. Ateneo’s sweep of the 2018 Filoil Preseason follows San Beda’s sweep of the 2017 Filoil Preseason which itself followed De La Salle University’s sweep of the 2016 Filoil Preseason. Last year, the Red Lions dethroned the Green Archers en route to a clean sweep. San Beda got a taste of its own medicine this time around, falling victim to a Blue Eagle side that did not lose in 11 games. Javee Mocon showed the way for them with a 14-point, 12-rebound double-double. Donald Tankoua also had 13 markers and five boards. Robert Bolick was scoreless in 10 minutes of play, but did not play much of the second half after suffering an apparent ankle injury in the second quarter. In the battle for third, Far Eastern University made quick work of College of St. Benilde, 78-58. No Tamaraw was in double-digits, but they counted seven players who contributed somewhere between six to nine points in the scoring column. For the Blazers, Kendrix Belgica and Robbie Nayve topped the scoring column with 12 points apiece. However, they elected not to play top guns Justin Gutang and Clement Leutcheu to rest them for the looming NCAA season.
