Games Tuesday: (Paco Arena, Manila) 2:00 p.m. - AMA Online Education vs McDavid 4:00 p.m. - CEU vs Diliman College-Gerry's Grill   University of Santo Tomas obliterated Batangas-EAC, 94-70, to kickstart its 2019 PBA D-League campaign on a high Monday at Paco Arena in Manila. Coach Aldin Ayo proudly paraded his new recruits with Beninese forward Soulemane Chabi Yo uncorking 19 points, 11 rebounds, and two blocks to lead the charge.  Pangasinense forward Rhanz Abando also had a rousing debut with his 17 points, nine boards, two dimes, while Brent Paraiso collected eight points, six rebounds, and five assists. Meanwhile, Chadao-FEU hardly broke a sweat in its 84-62 victory over SMDC-NU in the second game. Alec Stockton triggered the rout, firing seven of his 15 points in the Tamaraws' scorching 21-8 first quarter as they easily cruised to their first victory in the Foundation Group. Sophomore guard L-Jay Gonzales did his part for Chadao-FEU with 12 points, three boards, and three assists as he slowly eases in to a bigger role with the team. Ken Tuffin and Branrey Bienes combined for 22 points and six rebounds, as Cameroonian slotman Patrick Tchuente impressed with his nine points, four rebounds, and a block. It was all Tamaraws in this game as they limited the Bulldogs to just 27-percent clip from the field and even took a lead as high as 28, 53-28, midway through the third quarter. Dave Ildefonso carried SMDC-NU in the losing cause with 14 points, five rebounds, and five assists. The Growling Tigers, on the other hand, also unveiled 18-year-old guard Mark Nonoy, who lived up to the hype to pour 15 points, five rebounds, two assists, and one steal as he became the youngest player in PBA D-League history. "Masaya kami kasi nakapaglaro agad ng maayos yung mga bago. Nakapag-adjust sila agad," he said. "Unang liga namin ito na big league. Masaya naman ako na hindi kami masyadong tight and nailabas nila yung laro nila. Yun lang naman, gusto lang namin na mailabas yung pineprepare namin." Abando led the blazing 10-0 start for the Growling Tigers that set the tone for the game, where the boys from Espana annexed the lead to as much as 33, 75-42, late in the third courtesy of Germy Mahinay's free throws. Senior playmaker Renzo Subido chipped in 11 points, five assists, and four rebounds for UST to gain an early headstart in the Aspirants Group.

FEU will have to wait longer for Flying RJ s liftoff in UAAP Srs.

RJ Abarrientos has played his last game for Far Eastern University-Diliman High School. Whatever happens, though, Abarrientos is certain he will keep wearing green and gold. This, even though, as it turns out, it is yet to be determined if he can seamlessly transition from being a Baby Tamaraw to becoming a Tamaraw. “Si RJ, Grade 11 pa lang siya, no, so kailangan niya munang tapusin yung high school,” head coach Allan Albano told reporters after they were booted out on Friday. Yes, apparently, Abarrientos may very well have to wait a year before being eligible to play for Morayta’s Seniors squad. As he himself put it, “Siguro nga po, baka mag-sit out muna ako.” He is currently completing Grade 11, but because he’s already 19-years old, he will no longer eligible to play next season in the UAAP Juniors where the age limit is 19. That means that, while the all-around guard is finishing up with high school, he will not be able to play for their varsity teams. Of course, there’s also an option for Abarrientos to take the Philippine Educational Placement (PEP) Test that grants students an opportunity to accelerate from a certain level to another. Still, he is well aware that is a long shot – and he may very well have to sit out for a while. Whatever happens, though, the nephew of Philippine basketball legend Johnny “Flying A” Abarrientos said that he believes patience is a virtue. “Sa akin naman, hindi ako nagmamadali. Kung anong ibibigay sa akin na opportunity, kung level up yun sa Seniors, ready naman akong anytime na ipasok ni coach Olsen [Racela],” he shared. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

UAAP 81 Final Four all set with Baby Tams, Baby Falcons

STANDINGS NU 11-1 Ateneo 9-3 FEU-Diliman 9-3 Adamson 8-4 UST 5-7 DLSZ 4-8 UE 1-11 UPIS 1-11 Far Eastern University-Diliman and Adamson High School are not getting left behind by Nazareth School of National University and Ateneo de Manila High School in the UAAP 81 Juniors Basketball Tournament. Courtesy of convincing victories over separate foes on Sunday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, the Baby Tamaraws and the Baby Falcons have completed the cast for the Final Four alongside the Bullpups and the Blue Eaglets. The Baby Tamaraws came out on top of the University of the Philippines Integrated School, 87-65, after getting propelled by RR Tolentino and his breakout game. The graduating forward scored a career-high 20 points on top of seven rebounds while Xyrus Torres chipped in 15 markers of his own in their ninth win in 12 games. “Kailangan naming masanay na kung wala si RJ, kailangang mag ibang mag-step up,” head coach Allan Albano said post-game. Main man RJ Abarrientos had his lowest scoring output in the season with just two points in 1-of-6 shooting, but made his presence felt elsewhere with 10 rebounds, seven assists, and two steals. It was also Abarrientos who orchestrated the Baby Tamaraws’ charge in the middle periods where they outscored their opponents, 46-26. They wouldn’t be threatened until the final buzzer and find themselves yet again on equal footing for the second spot with defending champion Ateneo. “Hopefully, makabalik kami dun sa maganda naming laro kasi mahirap na kung si Ateneo yung magkaroon ng (twice-to-beat) advantage,” coach Allan said. Meanwhile, the Baby Falcons pecked De La Salle Zobel, 94-77, to also advance to the playoffs. This will be their first trip there since Season 78 and none of it wouldn’t have been possible if not for Doria twins Adam and Andrey. The former finished with 27 points built on seven triples on top of six rebounds while the latter ended with an 18-marker, 11-rebound double-double. Main man Joem Sabandal was also right there with them with 19 points, 11 rebounds, and five assists as Adamson ascended onto an 8-4 standing. Even after the breakthrough, though, they aren’t resting on their laurels as they still have their sights set on a twice-to-beat advantage. On the other hand, the Junior Archers fail to make the playoffs for the third season in a row and now hold a 4-8 record. Ivan Cudiamat fronted their effort in this one with 27 points and nine rebounds. For the Junior Maroons, Polo Labao topped the scoring column with 19 points to go along with 10 rebounds and five assists. Their latest loss drops their record to 1-11.
