FIBA: No time to party as June Mar’s focus shifts to Gilas Pilipinas

On Tuesday, San Miguel Beer had a victory party to celebrate winning the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup. Also on Tuesday, Gilas Pilipinas had practice in preparation for the 2019 FIBA World Cup, which is happening in less than two weeks. After missing weeks of national team training due to the PBA Finals, star center June Mar Fajardo had to rejoin Gilas Pilipinas already. He can party later but now, Gilas is calling and he has to answer. After a courtesy call to team management, the PBA’s reigning five-time league MVP got his Pilipinas jersey on and went to work. “Duty call. Priority yung Gilas ngayon so naintindihan naman ng mga boss sa San Miguel,” June Mar said. “Nagpaalam naman ako sa San Miguel na may practice, sabi ko di na ako sasali sa party. Naiintindihan naman ng management so okay lang sa kanila,” he added. Fajardo is drained after a grueling PBA playoffs but he has to power through as Gilas Pilipinas needs him. June Mar can rest when he’s done. “Syempre nakaka-pagod rin... hindi rin naman ganoong kadali ang pinagdaanan namin sa last conference eh. Pagdating namin sa playoffs do or die talaga. Buti nakuha namin yung championship,” Fajardo said. “Kailangan na naming mag-move on. Iba na yung priority. Gilas muna,“ he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PVL: Pagod na pagod -- Gonzaga on back-to-back 5-setters

PacificTown Army star Jovelyn Gonzaga is living up to her moniker as the ‘Bionic Ilongga’. Less than 24 hours after a grueling five-set match in a different tournament, Gonzaga’s endurance and heart went to the test once again, this time with the Lady Troopers coming back from two sets down including a record-setting opening frame to down ChocoMucho on Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference. Gonzaga led PacificTown Army to a 39-41, 19-25, 25-19, 25-20, 15-12, win to remain unscathed in two outings. The lefty Guimaras native displayed an all-around game and played her heart out despite seeing action in a draining five-set decider with Cignal in the 2019 Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference semifinals against Petron. “Pagod na pagod pero wala, high morale ako kasi puro panalo,” said Gonzaga, who just came back from a two-year hiatus following a knee injury. “Yun na lang ang attitude ko. High morale talaga ako, wala akong iniisip na iba.” Gonzaga displayed her vintage form as she finished with 24 points with all but one coming off attacks. The 27-year old former national team standout also contributed well on floor defense with 26 digs and 16 excellent receptions in the two-hour, 46-minute duel. Army allowed the opposite spiker to play in both leagues and as a way of giving back, Gonzaga vowed to give her 100% effort every game for the Lady Troopers. “Ang lagi ko ngang sinasabi gusto kong mag-give back sa coaches na nag-iintindi sa akin,” said Gonzaga, who in the Reinforced Conference helped PacificTown Army capture the bronze in the squad’s first stint in the league. “Kasi siya (coach Kungfu Reyes) grabe yung pag-intindi niya sa akin, hindi niya ako binubugbog sa training,” said Gonzaga. “Ito naman yung way ko paano ako makabalik ng tiwala.” Gonzaga will rest tonight, knowing that she accomplished her task for the day for the Lady Troopers. On Thursday, she’ll be back in action for her other club team.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

FIBA: Relieved Guiao can finally have Gilas go hard as a complete team

With less than two weeks to go before the 2019 FIBA World Cup, Gilas Pilipinas can finally practice with a full team. The national team is still dealing with injuries, the latest one hurt being Matthew Wright, but Gilas Pilipinas finally has everyone onboard with the return of June Mar Fajardo, RR Pogoy, and Troy Rosario. Gilas can truly grind it out now and the team enters the most critical stretch of its World Cup prep. As it stands, the national teamis not in ideal condition just yet. “Malaking relief actually,” head coach Yeng Guiao said on finally practicing with a full team. “Pero kung tatanungin niyo ako ngayon, di pa tayo handa eh,” Guiao added. The Philippines start the World Cup with an Aug. 31 showdown against Italy and time is running out to get some good practices in. Gilas will make the most of their sessions as they look to get things going with a complete lineup. “Itong last 10 days, importante satin, dahil nga parang sinalpak lang natin yung tatlo kahapon eh. Eh crucial yung tatlo,” Guiao said talking about Fajardo, Pogoy, and Rosario. “Malaki pa matututlong ng mga yun sa team. Kaya tamang-tama na meron pa tayong sampung araw,” coach Yeng added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Column: FedEx Cup about the money, not the majors

By Doug Ferguson, Associated Press ATLANTA (AP) — The FedEx Cup is still about the money. Whoever wins this week at the Tour Championship gets $15 million, more than Greg Norman's career earnings on the PGA Tour. The FedEx Cup might one day be as much about prestige. Tiger Woods (twice), Vijay Singh and Jim Furyk won the first four FedEx Cup titles, and all four will be in the World Golf Hall of Fame if they're not in already. The last four winners were Justin Rose, Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth. That's good company to keep. The FedEx Cup was never about major championships. Woods is absent from East Lake, this time not by choice but because he didn't qualify. It stands out because of his last two victories, Nos. 80 and 81, both in Georgia. The first was the Tour Championship, the most electric moment in golf all of last year. Woods won at East Lake to cap a remarkable return from four back surgeries, a DUI arrest stemming from his reliance on painkillers and his own fears that he would never compete again. Memories would be a lot stronger if he were here. Instead, he becomes the seventh player to win the Tour Championship and not be eligible to return the following year during the FedEx Cup era. Should he be at East Lake? It seems that way because of his other victory, this one in April at Augusta National, as captivating as any of his 15 majors. Woods said Sunday at Medinah when his season officially ended that he was disappointed and he wished he could be at East Lake. But he hardly was torn up over it, for one reason. "I'm the one with the green jacket," he said of winning the Masters. He also has company. British Open champion Shane Lowry didn't make it to East Lake, either. He has a claret jug at home in Ireland to console him. This is the fifth time in 13 years of the FedEx Cup that at least two major champions were not at the final event, usually with extenuating circumstances involved. Five major champions who didn't make it to East Lake were not PGA Tour members, three of them in 2010 — Graeme McDowell, Louis Oosthuizen and Martin Kaymer. The last time was in 2016, when Masters champion Danny Willett and British Open champion Henrik Stenson fell short. Willett didn't become a PGA Tour member until after he won the Masters. Stenson had a knee injury he wanted to protect for the Ryder Cup and wound up playing just two playoff events. Given their stature, it would seem the majors should get more FedEx Cup points than a measly 20% bump. For example, Woods received 600 points for winning that little invitational at Augusta National. That's only 100 points more than Kevin Tway got for winning the Safeway Open. Could it be more? Sure. Does it need to be? Not necessarily. Would anyone even be talking about major champions not being at East Lake if not for Woods being one of them? Because while the PGA Tour has drastically changed its season with the FedEx Cup format, what hasn't changed is what matters — winning majors. The reward for capturing a Grand Slam event is worth far more than having a tee time at East Lake and a chance to win $15 million. Besides, it's not like Woods and Lowry didn't have the opportunity. Woods played only six times after he won the Masters — three times he failed to make the cut, the other three he was a combined 39 shots behind the leader — and finished the season with 12 events. Lowry played 14 times, a product of having only conditional status at the start of the year. He had middle-of-the-pack performances at two playoff events. He finished 57 points short of East Lake, which equates to being two shots better at Liberty National and at Medinah. "I think what it says is that it's really hard to get to Atlanta and the Tour Championship," PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan said. "You've got to play exceedingly well over the course of an entire season. And with volatility, there's risk." The volatility refers to the playoff events offering four times as many points. If any change should be considered, perhaps triple the value would do the trick. Or the tour could double the points for the first event and triple the points for the next one. It really doesn't matter. The majors are over. Names are etched on silver trophies and in golf lore. The FedEx Cup is merely an end-of-the-year competition to keep golf compelling and to give the PGA Tour season a definitive end. It hasn't done any harm. If anything, it has kept the best players competing against each other after the majors. And they all get rich when it's over. Total bonus money for the 30 players who made it to Atlanta is $46 million. That's what they will be chasing over the next four days. Woods and Lowry now can only look behind them. The view is just as sweet......»»
