UAAP: Tigresses, Lady Bulldogs still spotless in beach volleyball

The University of Santo Tomas and National University stayed perfect by sweeping two matches Tuesday in women's division of the UAAP Season 81 beach volleyball tournament at Sands SM By The Bay. Reigning MVP Sisi Rondina and Babylove Barbon bested Ateneo's Ponggay Gaston and Jules Samonte, 21-9, 21-15, before returning in the afternoon session with a 21-14, 21-14 conquest of De La Salle's Tin Tiamzon and Michelle Morente to extend the defending two-time women's champions' undefeated run to three games. Rookies Klymince Orilleneda and Antonnete Landicho topped University of the Philippines' Isa Molde and Justine Dorog, of 21-19, 21-10, and University of the East's Rhea Manalo and Lyen Shan Ritual, 21-15, 21-15, for NU's third consecutive win. In the men's division, Far Eastern University became the only undefeated team, as Jude Garcia and Kevin Hadlocon repulsed UST's Krung Arbasto and Jaron Requinton, 21-19, 21-18, for a 3-0 card. Reigning titlist National University continued its rise from a shock opening day loss, with MVP Bryan Bagunas and James Natividad scoring a 21-12, 21-15 victory over Ateneo's Kurt Aguilar and Abai Llenos for a 2-1 card. The Lady Spikers raced to a 7-4 lead in the second set before the Tigresses regained control with the cat-quick pair of Rondina and Barbon making adjustments in their game to produce another straight sets conquest in front of a highly-appreciative crowd. Tiamzon and Morente, who dominated Adamson University's Hannah Nicole Infante and Gracelchen Ave, 21-10, 21-5, in the morning session, fell to 2-1. Meanwhile, the Lady Maroons and the Lady Eagles entered the win column after two straight losses. Molde and Dorog topped FEU's Ivana Agudo and Marianne Calinawan, 21-18, 21-11, while Gaston and Samonte, turned back Adamson University's Ave and Infante, 21-14, 21-14. In other men's matches, Adamson University's Pao Pablico and Jesus Valdez bested UE's Clifford Inoferio and Alven Aljas, 21-15, 22-24, 16-14, while UP's Nico Consuelo and Mac Millete outlasted De La Salle's Geraint Bacon and Paul Serrano, 23-21, 19-21, 15-12. The tournament resumes on Friday with eight men's and four women's matches beginning at 8 a.m. at the same Mall of Asia Complex sand court.  .....»»

Coronel breaks out, Perpetual breaks into top four of NCAA 94

Coming off the biggest win for any team thus far in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament, University of Perpetual Help was as confident as it has ever been. That was very much evident on both AJ Coronel and Jielo Razon who teamed up to tow the Altas past Jose Rizal University, 85-73, on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Coronel caught fire from the get-go and wound up with a career-high 22 points to go along with 11 rebounds and two steals. Not that far behind was Razon who returned from a one-game absence to contribute 21 points and five rebounds. With those two taking charge, the struggles of Prince Eze didn’t even matter as they improved to 8-5 - forcing a tie for the fourth and final playoff berth with College of St. Benilde. Behind those two, Perps got off to a blazing beginning, scoring 11 straight points while holding their opponents scoreless for the first five minutes of the game. That lead would soon balloon to 14 points and they would never trail until the final buzzer. In the end, Eze still had 16 points and 13 rebounds, but shot 7-of-16 from the field and had six turnovers. Edgar Charcos was also relatively quiet, with only four points and eight assists in this one and yet, Perpetual had more than enough to build on its biggest win in two years. Last Friday, they became the first team in two seasons to down Lyceum of the Philippines in the elimination round. Now, the Altas have put themselves in the thick of things – tied with CSB for fourth and right behind 9-4 Colegio de San Juan de Letran at third. For the Heavy Bombers, Jed Mendoza gave his all as always with 22 points, five rebounds, and five assists while Leo Esguerra fired a career-best 21 markers. Those, though, proved to be insufficient to prevent their fall to 2-12. BOX SCORES PERPETUAL 85 – Coronel 22, Razon 21, Eze 16, Aurin 5, Jimenez 5, Charcos 4, Cuevas 4, Mangalino 3, Tamayo 3, Pasia 2, Peralta 0. JRU 73 – Mendoza 22, Esguerra 21, Estrella 10, Aguilar 8, Dela Virgen 3, Mallari 3, David 2, Doromal 2, Silvarez 0, Bordon 0, Padua 0.

Bayern toasting Bundesliga dominance ahead of Oktoberfest

By CIARAN FAHEY,  Associated Press BERLIN (AP) — Bayern Munich's rivals appear to have thrown in the towel already. "Bayern's superiority is striking," Schalke general manager Christian Heidel said after his team lost to the defending Bundesliga champions on Saturday. "The way they played, I can't imagine them losing another game." Bayern was supposed to have had a tough start against Hoffenheim, Stuttgart, Bayer Leverkusen and then Schalke, last season's runner-up. But the team's confidence is booming after winning every game comfortably since its loss to Eintracht Frankfurt in the German Cup final in May. "It can go on like that," Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said. Ominously for Bayern's rivals, the Bavarian powerhouse has not lost during Oktoberfest for the last eight years. The 185th edition of the beer-festival in Munich started Saturday and runs until Oct. 7. While they may indulge themselves by wearing the traditional leather pants of the region, the players will have to resist the temptations of the jugs of wheat beer at the festival - at least until the last Sunday. "Until then they can maybe drink a radler," Salihamidzic joked, referring to beer watered down by non-alcoholic soda. Bayern coach Niko Kovac said the players know what is expected of them during Oktoberfest. "If they go there, they will certainly be recognized and that won't go down well. We'll have time to go there, but now we still have to get points," Kovac said. Bayern, which is going for a record-extending seventh straight title, next hosts Bavarian rival Augsburg on Tuesday, before traveling to second-place Hertha Berlin on Friday. A win against its closest rival could see Bayern open up a five-point lead after six matches. 'DEATH THREAT' Hoffenheim said it was shocked by the animosity displayed by Borussia Dortmund fans toward its billionaire backer, Dietmar Hopp, in the 1-1 draw on Saturday, when fans displayed what the club called a "death threat" against him. Dortmund fans rolled out a huge banner showing Hopp's head in crosshairs over the words "Hasta la vista, Hopp" across a large section of the guest block at the stadium in Hoffenheim. A similar banner, only much smaller, caused a stir 10 years ago. Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke apologized for the banner. Hopp is a target for Dortmund fans after initiating legal proceedings against more than 30 of them for alleged obscenities during a game last season. HERTHA HERO It took some time, but Ondrej Duda finally seems to have arrived at Hertha in his third season at the club. The Slovakia midfielder sealed the 4-2 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach on Saturday, taking his goal tally to a league-leading four in four games. Duda only made three league appearances - 67 minutes altogether - in his first season at Hertha after joining from Legia Warsaw in 2016, while he scored one goal in 17 appearances last season. GOETZE'S FALL Mario Goetze, who scored Germany's World Cup-winning goal in 2014, has yet to play for Dortmund in the Bundesliga this season. The 26-year-old Goetze was left out of the squad altogether for the game at Hoffenheim, a decision that coach Lucien Favre said was purely sporting......»»

Stewart, Wilson propel US to 100-88 win over China

By Doug Feinberg, Associated Press SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Spain (AP) — After a quiet first half, Breanna Stewart felt she needed to be more assertive on both ends of the court. She certainly made her presence felt in the final 20 minutes. Stewart scored 21 of her 23 points in the second half and A'ja Wilson added 20 points to help the United States beat China 100-88 on Sunday in the second day of the FIBA Women's Basketball World Cup. "I needed to be more aggressive. There were a few things that I could have done better — defense and rebounding. Focus on that and the offense comes," Stewart said. China trailed only 36-35 midway through the second quarter as the U.S. was still trying to figure out a lineup that worked on offense and defense. The Americans then closed the half on a 12-4 burst. Wilson had six points during the run. Layshia Clarendon, who played a few minutes in the first game, also provided a spark off the bench in the spurt. She had two points, two assists and two rebounds. The Chinese team hung around in the third quarter and trailed 60-54 before Stewart, who played in China the past few winters, took over. She scored nine of the next 11 points and China couldn't get within seven the rest of the way. "She was trailing a lot, and obviously the defense sucked down. The post players did a great job rim running," U.S. coach Dawn Staley said. "That left Stewie wide open at the top of key and she took advantage of them time and again. That's what we come to expect, Stewie like things. We needed her to be that way to give us some separation and widen our lead in the third quarter." The Americans were still missing Brittney Griner, who suffered a slight sprain of her right ankle in practice Friday. Griner said after the win over Senegal she would have played if it was an elimination game. China was able to exploit the lack of Griner with its own 6-foot-9 center Han Xu. Han showed an impressive array of post moves as well as a deft touch from 10 feet. The 18-year-old finished with 20 points and left to a warm ovation from the crowd with 20 seconds left. "Coach encouraged us to play with confidence. The U.S. is a very good team. We just went out and enjoyed ourselves," said China guard Shao Ting, who had 10 points. The Chinese team, which is the youngest in the tournament with the average age 23 years, lost to the U.S. by 43 points in the 2016 Olympics. The U.S. (2-0) hasn't lost to China (1-1) in six meetings in the World Cup. The Americans won the first five meetings by an average of 25.8 points. The victory was the Americans' 18th in a row in the tournament and 43rd in the past 44 games in the World Cup. The only blemish over the past 20 years was a loss to Russia in the semifinals of the 2006 World Cup. Sunday's game came on the 12th anniversary of that loss. CHINA CONNECTION: Many of the U.S. players have competed in China in the offseason. Stewart, Griner, Morgan Tuck, Jewell Loyd and Tina Charles all have spent time there. Wilson will be headed there this year. "You're having some of the top WNBA players going over there to China and showing them the standards of what we put ourselves through," Stewart said. RECOVERING: Elena Delle Donne played only 3 ½ minutes on Sunday. She suffered a bone bruise in the WNBA playoffs and is still recovering. She said that she and Staley would talk before each game to discuss how she was feeling. Delle Donne said after the game the back to back was difficult. SCOREBOARD: It was a great day for Africa with both Senegal and Nigeria winning. It's the first time in the history of the tournament that an African team won a pool play game, let alone two. Senegal beat Latvia 70-69 and Nigeria edged Turkey 74-68. In other games, Canada beat South Korea 82-63; Australia routed Argentina 84-43; Japan edged Belgium 77-75 in OT; France beat Greece 75-71 and Spain topped Puerto Rico 78-53. UP NEXT China: Will face Senegal on Tuesday with second place in the group at stake. U.S.: Will face Latvia on Tuesday looking to continue its dominance......»»
