‘Rusty’ Gilas Pilipinas bows to Jordan in tuneup

Gilas Pilipinas fell short in its first test after bowing to Jordan, 98-92, in a scrimmage Monday night as part of its buildup for the Fiba World Cup Asian qualifiers before a packed crowd at Meralco Gym. The Filipinos climbed back from a deep hole early and even took the lead but failed to sustain their form when it mattered most. "We're a little bit rusty but there's still a lot of room for improvement," said national team coach Yeng Guiao "We've had some good stretches but we also had some bad stretches. Our execution is not good. We have to fine-tune our execution on both ends." Marcio Lassiter kept Gilas in the thick of the fight late but Jordan turned to its veteran...Keep on reading: ‘Rusty’ Gilas Pilipinas bows to Jordan in tuneup.....»»

Kai Sotto forgoes Gilas practice and tune-up game for exam week

Citing academics, Kai Sotto won't be attending Gilas Pilipinas' tune-up game against Jordan at the Meralco Gym Monday evening. Sotto says he will be undergoing exams this week at Ateneo High School, thus not being able to devote his time fully to the rigors of national team training. "Hindi ako pupunta sa practice. Exams namin sa Ateneo. Hindi ako lalaro bukas," the 7 foot 1 center said. Even though he won't be able to attend training for Gilas, Sotto had a show in their 75-59 win against the Adamson Baby Falcons at the Blue Eagle Gym Sunday morning. The slot man had 27 points and 20 rebounds in the victory, with 17 of those markers coming from the free throw line. Even so, new Blue Eaglet coach Reggie Varilla was proud of his boys of towing themselves to the win, days after floor general Forthsky Padrigao underwent an appendectomy and will be out the remainder of the first round. Sotto even dedicated the victory to his recovering teammate who he is proud to be called as his best friend. "Si Forthsky talaga, best friend ko yan. Sobrang ka-close ko yan. Alam ko yung nararamdaman niya na yung parang comeback season niya tapos naputol pa." About his 25 attempts from the line, Sotto expected the swarming Adamson defense to give no inch to him, and took every opportunity to take advantage of the tactic. "Yun talaga gagawin lagi ng depensa. Expected na lagi. Marami rin akong namintis so sayang." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»

PVL: Angels complete semis cast

PetroGazz barely broke a sweat in sweeping hapless Adamson-Akari, 25-21, 25-9, 25-15, Sunday to complete the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference semifinals cast at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Angels started out flat but was quick to recover to claim their third straight win for an 8-5 win-loss record while adding more woes to the winless Lady Falcons. PetroGazz joined BanKo (10-3), Ateneo-Motolite (10-4) and Creamline (9-3) in the best-of-three Final Four after completing a back-to-back weekend schedule sweep. The Jerry Yee-mentored squad defeated Ateneo-Motolite in four sets last Saturday.  The Angels’ victory booted out Pocari Sweat-Air Force, which missed the semis for the first time in franchise history, and Tacloban, which are tied at 6-7 slates. Jessey de Leon poured 13 of her 14 points on attacks to highlight the Angels' 46-kill performance. Cherry Nunag and Alyssa Layug added 13 and 11 markers, respectively, for PetroGazz.   The Lady Falcons, who fielded Eli Soyud for the first time after recovering from a knee injury but still played without Bernadette Flora (back spasm) and Lea Anne Perez (ankle sprain), absorbed its 12th straight loss in as many games. No Adamson-Akari player scored in double figures with rookie Trisha Genesis posting six points while Soyud, who only played in the third set, and Chrislyn Uy added five markers each.           --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
