Kevin Ferrer sees UST s fabled 3Ps in super rookie CJ Cansino

University of Sto. Tomas’ past and present converged last Sunday. Kevin Ferrer, once a stalwart for the Growling Tigers, was present to witness firsthand the budding stardom of their super rookie in CJ Cansino. And after just one game, the now Ginebra Gin King was left nothing but impressed. “Sobrang aggressive niya. Ang sarap niyang panoorin,” he told reporters while his alma mater was pulling off an upset over Far Eastern University. So impressed was he that, in his eyes, Cansino would have fit in quite nicely with the UST teams of his day. “Sobrang tapang niya. Nandun yung tinatawag namin na ‘3 Ps’ – yung puso, pride, palaban,” he shared. He then continued, “Sana, mahawa niya yung teammates niya sa aggressiveness niya.” When he was still donning the gold and white, Ferrer lived by the three pillars instilled by then head coach Pido Jarencio – puso, pride, and palaban. And according to the two-time PBA champion himself, UST’s new super rookie is more aggressive than he himself. “Mas aggressive siya, ako magulang lang e,” he kidded. For his part, Cansino was modest as always and expressed gratitude for hearing nothing but good words from one of the greats of their school. As he put it, “Sobrang saya ko kasi si Kevin Ferrer, PBA na and naabot na niya yung pangarap ng kahit sinong player. Grateful lang ako na masabihan niya nang ganun.” For the super rookie to continue fulfilling his destiny, the now PBA star had this piece of advice. “Wag siyang mapagod mag-improve. Kung nasaan siya, dapat higitan pa niya kasi kailangang nag-iimprove siya every day dahil future King Tiger siya,” he said. Along with the “3 Ps” and being King Tigers, Ferrer and Cansino also share the similarity of being former MVPs from their school’s Juniors program who then decided to stay. And in that light, both of them wanted nothing more than to give their all for the Growling Tigers. “Ako po, gusto ko lang talaga ibigay yung best ko for UST,” Cansino said. Knowing exactly how that feels, Ferrer is urging the faithful over at Espana to do nothing but support their resurgent squad. “Sobrang saya ko na nag-stay siya at ‘di na nga siya umalis sa tahanan namin. Sana, full support pa ang UST sa kanya para mas ma-boost pa yung game niya,” he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Durham, Amer rally Meralco past NLEX

Allen Durham and Baser Amer teamed up in the fourth quarter to rally Meralco past NLEX, 108-105, in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup Sunday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. Durham and Amer accounted for 12 of Meralco's final 15 points inside the last four minutes as the Bolts came back from 16 down in the final frame to resuscitate their flatlining quarterfinals bid. "We've struggled throughout the game. We've been struggling a lot lately especially when we came back from Thailand," said Meralco head coach Norman Black. "Our defense is really not on point right now but the players did not give up in this game. They kept fighting until the end and the result is we got a win tonight to keep our ...Keep on reading: Durham, Amer rally Meralco past NLEX.....»»

Poor guard play highlights absence of Ravena, Alas in NLEX’s ‘bad loss’ to Meralco

NLEX coach Yeng Guiao felt his team committed one too many mistakes down the stretch in a crucial loss to Meralco, a game the Road Warriors initially had in their fingertips but let slip away.

PBA: Amer says Bolts going for broke in final three games

Baser Amer went from zero to hero in a matter of days for the Meralco Bolts. Amer scored a grand total of zero points Friday in a Meralco loss to Northport. Sunday against NLEX, Baser was struggling again, good for only five points through three quarters. But then the final period came and it was Hammer Time for Baser, dropping 17 big points including a clutch, game-tying and-one play and the final go-ahead triple as the Bolts stunned the Road Warriors with a comeback win. Amer finished with 22 points for the game, 17 in the fourth alone. "Struggle yung shooting ko from last game pero nandun yung tiwala ng teammates at coaches ko," Amer said. "Of course malaking bagay to samin kasi anim na talo na eh, ang bigat na sa katawan," he added. Now at 2-6 after arresting a six-game slide, the Bolts are barely avoiding elimination in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup. With three games to go, Meralco is going for broke as they try to sneak into the playoffs. "Last [three] games na lang kami eh, so para sakin di na namin titignan yung standing," Amer said. "Yung last [three] games, look to win kami tapos bahala na kung ano mangyari," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Durham proud of Meralco s effort in win over NLEX

Meralco has made it to two straight PBA Governors' Cup Finals, but a third straight trip to the title round is probably not in the mind of the Bolts right now. Well for one, Meralco is barely avoiding elimination in the season-ending joust. The Bolts arrested a six-game slide Sunday by beating NLEX and Meralco currently only has a 2-6 mark. They are out of the playoff picture for the moment. With three games left, the Bolts are focused on just staying alive than trying to make a third straight Finals appearance. "We can't really think about playoffs right now," import Allen Durham said. "We just gotta think about getting better, take one game at a time. When we think too far ahead, that's when mistakes happen, your overlook the team, and everything falls from there," he added. Durham, the reigning two-time Best Import, was huge in Meralco staying alive Sunday. He finished with 36 points, 18 rebounds, and seven assists for Meralco. More importantly, Durham's big block on Juanmi Tiongson as time expired preserved Meralco's three-point victory. "It feels great. Even though we won we still didn't play perfect but I'm proud of our guys, they didn't give up. I think we're down 10 or 9 pts with six minutes, but we just showed relentlessness and we just kept fighting," Durham said. "That's what happens when you keep fighting for the whole 48 minutes," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

One last charge

Pido Jarencio is hoping that this sudden burst of brilliance by his NorthPort crew hasn't come too late in the day. "We might just still be able to make it [to the playoffs]," Jarencio said after his Batang Pier weathered several Meralco rallies in the fourth period to carve out a 99-94 decision Friday night at Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay, their second straight win in the PBA Governors' Cup that kept their flickering hopes of advancing past the eliminations alive. "The players worked hard for this. In offense and defense, I just can't ask for more," said the outspoken Jarencio after NorthPort rose to 2-6, still out of the magic circle of eight teams that will march on.

PBA: No. 1 Gin Kings out to add on ROS troubles

Two-time defending champion Brgy. Ginebra will be looking to maintain pole position in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup Saturday. The Gin Kings lead all teams in the season-ending joust with a 7-1 record. They target an eighth win as they take on Rain or Shine in Lucena, Quezon. A win by Ginebra pretty much locks up a twice-to-beat edge in the playoffs and they keep a safe distance from about four other teams at the top of the standings. Meanwhile, the Elasto Painters are still looking for their first win in the Governors' Cup. ROS has struggled all conference long, stumbling to a 0-4 record. Tip off for Ginebra-ROS will be at 5:00 p.m. live from the Quezon Convention Center.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
