Only, both Mapua and LSGH, at present, find themselves at the bottom half of the standings as they are still adjusting to new coaches as well as the losses of all those stars. Still, this matchup may very well see the season debut of Jonnel Policarpio – and if that holds true, the rest of the league had better watch out for the oncoming Red Robins. The Red Robins and the Jr. Blazers do battle and y'all can watch VIA LIVESTREAM. THURSDAY, 4:00 p.m., Mapua vs CSB The matchup right after the NCAA Jrs. Finals rematch ain’t no slouch as well as CSB stakes its spotless slate against a Mapua side that is yet to win, but nonetheless remains dangerous.

Nazareth School of National University wasted no time in stamping its class in the 2019 Asean School Games, pounding on home team Indonesia, 87-47, Sunday at GOR Sahabat in Semarang.

The kings of UAAP Jrs. were in complete command from start to finish, blasting off to a 14-2 start that ultimately turned into a 29-9 lead after the opening salvo. Their lead would only balloon to as much as 42, 87-45, late in the game. In the end, youngster Harold Alarcon scored 10 points of his own while team captain Gerry Abadiano contributed six markers, five assists, and three rebounds. Freego and Oriental Group of Companies-backed Team Philippines now turns its attention to Malaysia which is coming off a loss to Thailand in the opener.

Batiller returns to form for Letran as NCAA Player of the Week

Letran Knights guard Bonbon Batiller had an NCAA Season 95 debut to forget. Playing in just his first two games this year due to a lengthy recovery from shoulder surgery, the graduating guard was a lineup afterthought, averaging 2.0 points and 3.0 turnovers in just 8.4 minutes a game. However, that all changed the very next week as Batiller led the Knights with 14 points in a 55-43 win last Tuesday against JRU.  He then proved his good game was no fluke as he dropped 22 more markers three days later in a thrilling 82-80 overtime squeaker against a Perpetual squad led by former UE backcourt partner Edgar Charcos. Letran benefited well from Batiller’s timely eruption and rose to a 3-1 win-loss slate, good for fourth in the league standings behind undefeated squads San Beda, CSB, and San Sebastian. Because of his resurgence, Batiller earned the season’s second Chooks-to-Go Collegiate Press Corps NCAA Player of the Week award. Even before the season started, Letran head coach Bonnie Tan had always been looking for Batiller’s missing spark. Safe to say, his veteran ward has responded well to the challenge. “Para sa akin, si coach Bonnie, talagang yung mga leaders, china-challenge niya. Talagang kailangan naming mag-step up,” he said. “Kaya para sakin, gagawin ko ang lahat para maabot ko yung expectation niya rin sa akin para makatulong ako sa team as a leader at senior.” The 25-year-old from General Santos City bested Letran teammate Ato Ular, the San Sebastian tandem of RK Ilagan and Allyn Bulanadi, Lyceum’s Jayson David, San Beda’s James Canlas, and JRU’s Agem Miranda for the weekly award handed out by scribes from print and online outlets covering the Grand Old League......»»

Mighty-GFG Philippines closes in on 2019 Jones Cup championship

Mighty Sports-Go for Gold Philippines is now one win away from the title in the 2019 William Jones Cup after a 28-point destruction of Indonesia, 94-66, Friday inside Changhua Gym in Taiwan. As always, reinforcements Eugene Phelps and Renaldo Balkman showed the way with 19 and 17 points, respectively. They were backstopped by ex-pro Joseph Yeo who turned in his best game of the tournament with 14 points, all but two coming from triples. Filipino-Americans Aaron Black and Jeremiah Gray also added eight and seven points, respectively. With their sixth win in as many games in the regional tournament, the Filipinos need just one more win to reclaim the crown they last wore back in 2016. They will get two cracks at that - first against Chinese Taipei Blue on Saturday and then second against Chinese Taipei White on Sunday.

No truth to the allegation of corruption -- Ramirez on SEA Games

Philippine Sports Commission chairman Butch Ramirez on Friday denied the allegations that the country’s preparation for the hosting of the 30th Southeast Asian Games has been tainted by corruption. “There is no truth to the allegation of corruption,” said Ramirez in a statement. “Yesterday, Cong. Alan Peter Cayetano, and myself sat down with Sen. Bong Go and Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea to sort out issues being reported by news outfits in the past days.” Reports earlier this week surfaced that President Rodrigo Duterte is taking the embattled Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee (Phisgoc) Foundation, Inc., a private body that aimed to organize the 30th SEA Games, out of commission and will be subjected to investigation due to alleged corruption and other irregularities. Ramirez cleared that all transactions made regarding the buildup for the biennial meet are met with ‘utmost transparency’. “We assure the athletes and the general public that all decisions and transactions will be done with utmost transparency,” he said. “The PSC, through the guidance of the Department of Budget Management and assistance of the Procurement Service shall work together to ensure that public funds are protected and that all disbursements or expenses follow existing government rules and laws.” A unity meeting to form a cohesive team for the country’s final push in the preparations of regional meet has been set. Ramirez, the chef de mission of Team Philippines, said all national sports associations that will participate in the coming Games and their athletes are invited during the gathering scheduled July 24 at the Malacanang Palace. The top brass of the Phisgoc and the PSC are also enjoined to attend the meeting to pledge their cooperation and all-out support to the entire organization of hosting the 11-nation sportsfest. “If we want to win as one, we should embrace a united front,” said Ramirez after attending the meeting with Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea, Senator Bong Go, Taguig City Congressman Alan Peter Cayetano and Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo on Thursday in Malacanang. “One team, one goal. The country should come together and be united in supporting this government effort,” added Ramirez, who led Team Philippines to its first overall title in SEA Games during the 2005 Manila hosting. Each national sports association has been tasked to bring along five athletes during the 10:00 a.m. Malacanang assembly. A total of 57 sports will be played during the Nov. 30-Dec. 11 Games to be held in three main clusters—Metro Manila, New Clark City and Subic. Ramirez has expressed high hopes that the meeting will encourage officials of the Phisgoc, POC and the PSC to move in one direction with four months to go before the biggest multi-sports event in the Asean region unfolds. Medialdea, Go and Cayetano, who also sits as chairman of Phisgoc, are expected to attend the gathering where at least 300 sports officials and athletes will be present......»»

PBA: Timely Banchero takeover saves Alaska’s conference

With Alaska on the brink of elimination in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup, Chris Banchero was in full takeover mode Friday in the one-game knockout for 8th place. Banchero hit two clutch jumpers for Alaska, allowing the Aces to force overtime against Meralco. They got the win in extra time to move on. The first for Banchero was a big triple off an offensive rebound by JVee Casio to cut the deficit to one with 11 seconds to go. Banchero then got another big one, a shot under duress with three seconds left to force a 96-all tie. He scored nine of his 15 total points in that crucial fourth quarter rally. “It started with JVee, he got a big rebound on the first three that I missed. When he kicked it out to me I know I had to knock it down for us to be in that game. Luckily it went down,” Banchero said. “That last one, it was a big shot. I’m happy it went in. Sometimes those are the games you gotta have to break through you know,” he added. Alaska’s prize for this tough overtime win is a date against no. 1 TNT on Sunday. The KaTropa hold a twice-to-beat advantage and enter the playoffs with an eight-game winning streak. The Aces are prepared to stand up for themselves even if they’re seen as heavy underdogs. “We’ve been in a lot of tough games this conference, sometimes when that happens, teams begin to play well. Hopefully we do that on Sunday,” Banchero said. “I told the guys not to be too happy, we’re still in the playoffs but at the end of the day we got a lot of work to do. TNT is very good but we’re not looking at it as a twice-to-beat but one game at a time,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Muscle Man ready to rock as he makes return to playoffs

A healthy Vic Manuel is a dangerous Vic Manuel. Meralco found out how tough the Muscle Man is Friday in the one-game knockout for 8th place in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup. Manuel torched the Bolts for 23 points, 15 in the fourth quarter and overtime, to lead Alaska back to the playoffs. “Last opportunity na sa amin ito. Yung last three games namin, parang binibigay na sa amin para makapasok kami sa playoffs, hindi namin nakukuha,” Manuel said. “Binigyan pa kami ng isang pagkakataon, so ngayong gabi, na-grab namin,” he added. Manuel came back for the Aces this conference after a long recovery from injury. While he’s been playing well, he wouldn’t say he’s regained his previous peak condition but he is healthy enough to play. Manuel played almost 25 minutes Friday against Meralco. “Ayun nga yung hindi ko masabi kasi minsan naninigas pa yung likod ko. Ako laro lang ako, laro nang laro kasi ayaw ko din i-pahinga eh,” Manuel said. “Pag pina-pahinga ko, parang lalo siyang sumasakit so nilalaro ko nang nilalaro,” he added. Ahead of his first playoff game this season, the Muscle Man will be ready to rock for Alaska. “Oo naman syempre,” he said as the Aces take on no. 1 TNT on Sunday. “Bibigay ko pa rin lahat ng best ko kahit na may nararamdaman pa ako, lalaro ko pa rin. Importante sa amin yung laro eh,” Manuel added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
