The matchup between San Beda and Lyceum on Thursday had an atmosphere befitting of a championship series even though the they were only playing in the second round of the NCAA Season 94 men's basketball tournament. In the midst of all that hype was one rookie who shone under the bright lights and shrugged off the championship aura to deliver for thedefending champions.

Why the hype on the Communist threat?

One of the lies told by Juan Ponce Enrile in that pathetic video interview by Bongbong Marcos was that Bongbong’s father imposed martial law to save the country from the Communist threat.

UAAP: Juan GDL calls out kuya Javi for corny alley-oop

In the third quarter of the University of the Philippines matchup with National University last Sunday, Javi Gomez de Liano showed that he was much more than a sweet-shooting forward. Caught at the wrong end of a fastbreak, Javi GDL stood his ground before perfectly timing a block on a layup attempt by Reggie Morido. After completing a defensive stop all by his lonesome, the third-year Fighting Maroon, softspoken as he is, let out some emotion. Nah, says Javi Gomez de Liano 😤 #UAAPSeason81 pic.twitter.com/JgtZQtzZQ5 — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) Oktubre 7, 2018 Asked about it post-game, he answered, “I just wanted to hype up the crowd. Yun lang.” Hype up the crowd, he did – so much so that, after the block, younger brother Juan came right at him for a GDL celebration. Juan GDL, who has a few highlight blocks of his own, said he was no longer surprised that his kuya did that. “That’s what he does kahit nung high school – he blocks shots, he gets rebounds. You guys shouldn’t be surprised,” he said. What the Season 80 Rookie of the Year didn’t appreciate, however, was how Javi GDL didn’t put an exclamation point on the alley-oop they connected on in the first quarter. “Yung alley-oop? Ang pangit, ni-layup (niya) kahit he was all alone,” he said while laughing. He then continued, “Weak finish, parang, binaby yung shot. Ang corny. Walang thrill.” Juan to Javi GDL brotherly connection 😏 #UAAPSeason81 pic.twitter.com/qrvK0u9UwA — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) Oktubre 7, 2018 Of course, Juan GDL was just kidding and ribbing his kuya. Turning serious, he said that, as always, he was proud of Javi GDL – though, the former also said that the latter’s breakout game could have been way better. As he put it, “I’m happy that this is his breakout game, but he could have done way better. He also missed free throws and was letting his man get rebounds.” He then continued, “Javi could have easily had a double-double. He could do better.” Know what, Juan? Kuya Javi shares the same sentiments. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo.  .....»»

Ready to rumble

  Jerwin Ancajas, the reigning IBF world bantamweight champion, is not a big fan of the rambunctious fight-week hype.   On the day he came face-to-face against challenger Alejandro Santiago of Mexico, Ancajas greeted him with a warmth more suited for old friends than enemies scheduled for a vicious square off in the ring.   They once again crossed paths Wednesday in the final presser with nary an incident that promoters could use to fuel interest in the fight.   But that doesn't mean there won't be fireworks when Ancajas (30-1-1 with 20 knockouts) stakes his two-year-old belt against the dangerous Santiago on Saturday morning (Manila time), at...Keep on reading: Ready to rumble.....»»

PVL Open Conference: Lady Eagles on acid test

A new-look Ateneo de Manila University Lady Eagles squad will get their first test before the UAAP wars when they take on seasoned club teams in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference. New head coach Oliver Almadro, who replaced resigned Tai Bundit after UAAP Season 80, will get his baptism of fire handling arguably the country’s most popular college team in the tournament slated to begin on September 22. After missing out on the UAAP Finals for the first time after six straight appearances, Almadro will begin the Lady Eagles’ rebuilding process together with holdovers from last season’s team. Graduating veteran Bea de Leon and seasoned middle blocker Maddie Madayag are back to lead Ateneo. Kim Gequillana is also back after sitting out the last UAAP season due to an ACL injury. New recruits setter Jaja Maraguinot, sister of former Ateneo open spiker Jho, and Vanessa Gandler will also be put under the microscope as they try to live up to the hype and expectations of Lady Eagles fans.

UAAP: Super rookie CJ Cansino knows he can do much more for UST

CJ Cansino lived up to the hype in just his first game in the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament. University of Sto. Tomas’ super rookie topped the scoring column for his side with 20 points on top of 10 rebounds. Cansino also dropped half of his output in the final frame, fronting their fightback from 17 points down. “I just want to win kahit down by (17). Sabi ko, baka may magawa (pa) ako kaya I just attacked the basket,” he told reporters post-game. Of course, the rally fell short and the Growling Tigers suffered a setback to open their campaign. Showing maturity beyond his years, the 18-year-old acknowledged that he could have played a lot better. “Medyo masakit kasi talo kami. Sa akin, more on sa defense kasi palagi akong nabo-blow by,” he shared. He then continued, “A lot to improve on.” Indeed, Cansino was opposite fellow super rookie Dave Ildefonso for majority of the matchup and the latter fired 19 points on the former. In the end, UST’s prized prospect had nothing but high praise for his counterpart in NU. “Si Dave, magaling talaga siya. Mautak tapos ang laki ng katawan kaya kain ako sa post,” he said. Still, Cansino said that the loss will only serve as a lesson for them. “Good sign para sa amin yung natutunan namin this game. Talo man kami, this will make us a better team,” he said. The UAAP Juniors MVP then continued, “Next games, I’ll just still do my best, I’ll just still compete.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

For fully loaded UP, it s first Final Four since 1997 or bust

HOW’D THEY DO LAST SEASON? 6-8, fifth YES, THEY’RE STILL HERE: Paul Desiderio, Javi Gomez de Liano, Juan Gomez de Liano, Jun Manzo, Gelo Vito WELCOME TO THE FAMILY: Bright Akhuetie, Will Gozum, David Murrell, Jaydee Tungcab GOOD LUCK ON FUTURE ENDEAVORS: Kyles Lao, Ibrahim Ouattara, Noah Webb WHAT SHOULD WE EXPECT FROM UP? This is the year fans of the University of the Philippines have been waiting for – because this is the year it’s all supposed to come together for this long-suffering team. Head coach Bo Perasol has always said that, slowly but surely, the Fighting Maroons will be in contention once more. “Nobody can assure success in terms of winning, but I know we are progressing. From where we were and where we are right now, nag-iimprove from year-to-year, month-to-month. We’re just positive na dapat lang, mas mahigit sa anim yung aming maipapanalo this coming season.” – head coach Bo Perasol And the upcoming UAAP Season 81 is the culmination of all the development, of all the recruitment, and of all the hype. “We anticipated this, we planned this. In everything we improved on, expectations are really high. (That means) that we are doing the right thing.” – head coach Bo Perasol The core of Paul Desiderio, Jun Manzo, and Gomez de LIano brothers Javi and Juan is back and better than ever – with Paul and Juan even getting valuable experience as Gilas cadets. Only now, that core has also welcomed with open arms even more talent in the form of Nigerian powerhouse Bright Akhuetie, NCAA Juniors MVP Will Gozum, former Adamson University slasher Jaydee Tungcab, and versatile Filipino-Amerian forward David Murrell. Hands down, this is the strongest lineup UP has ever had on paper – yes, even stronger than that 1986 championship led by Benjie Paras and Ronnie Magsanoc. Still, that championship team had long proven to be winners before they even got to DIliman. That is yet to be determined for this current crop of Fighting Maroons. WHO IS/ARE THE PLAYER/S TO WATCH OUT FOR FROM UP? Desiderio wants his legacy in UP to be that of the captain who led his team to its first Final Four since 1997 – and its first Final Four of many for the foreseeable future. After a championship in the PBA D-League, the main man is nothing but willing to do it all for more of that winning feeling now in his alma mater. For the first time since the days of Paras, the Fighting Maroons will have a dominant inside presence in Akhuetie who once powered University of Perpetual Help to the Final Four and a near-upset of dynastic San Beda University. the rest of the frontline isn’t too shabby either with Javi GDL, Jerson Prado, and Gelo Vito. The most must-watch aspect of State U’s season, however, has got to be the leap Juan GDL is supposed to make. The former Juniors MVP and reigning Rookie of the Year was always destined for superstardom – the only question is will he be getting there as a sophomore. WHY SHOULD WE ROOT FOR UP? For years, UP has said that there is nowhere to go but up. With just 13 wins in nine seasons from 2007 to 2015, that is indeed the case. The loveable underdogs are no more though, as the Fighting Maroons have the makings of a league powerhouse for years to come. “Wala na kaming excuses. Lahat (training camp, gym, weights room, et al) yan, at par na sa malalakas na programa. Ang kulang na lang is for us to deliver.” – head coach Bo Perasol If they live up to the hype, then a 21-year wait will come to an end and a long-awaited, much-wanted Final Four berth will be theirs to celebrate. “The important (thing) is we believe we can. We believe it’s difficult, but we’re willing to do whatever it takes to achieve it.” – head coach Bo Perasol WHERE WOULD UP BE AT THE END OF UAAP SEASON 81? Ready that bonfire at the Sunken Garden, Diliman. UP’s playoff drought will end – there will be a lot of hiccups on their way there as they are still on the process of learning how to win, but they will get there. “I don’t know where we’re going, but the mere fact that people are trying to pressure us, (that means) we’re stronger now. Before, I don’t think people were expecting people to win. This time, we’re happy and we’re up for it.” – head coach Bo Perasol This team is too talented and Desiderio is too determined for them not to get there. “Hindi (na) lang enough yung fighting, we have to win. Kailangan, iniintindi namin na hindi pwedeng Fighting Maroons kami – we have to be the Winning Maroons.” – head coach Bo Perasol WHEN IS UP’S FIRST GAME IN UAAP SEASON 81? UP is out for a confidence-booster right out of the gates when it is matched up opposite new-look University of the East on September 7. Of course, It All Begins Here on S+A, S+A HD, LIGA, LIGA HD, and livestream. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

NU Super 6 for UAAP Season 81

These are the players who will be key as NU hopes to live up to the hype. The new-look NU Bulldogs look VERY dangerous 👀 #UAAPSeason81 pic.twitter.com/wWu8ZSkWaQ — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) September 2, 2018 John Lloyd Clemente – Guard/Forward UAAP Season 79 (Jrs) averages: 16.8 points, 7.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 26.6 minutes John Galinato – Guard Issa Gaye – Center UAAP Season 80 averages: 14.3 points, 9.2 rebounds, 2.7 blocks, 26.1 minutes Dave Ildefonso – Forward UAAP Season 80 (Jrs) averages: 13.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.1 steals, 27.8 minutes Shaun Ildefonso – Forward UAAP Season 79 averages: 0.2 rebounds, 2.0 minutes Enzo Joson – Guard UAAP Season 80 averages: 6.8 points, 2.7 assists, 2.1 rebounds, 19.3 minutes.....»»

NU has all the pieces, but can they put them all together?

HOW’D THEY DO LAST SEASON? 5-9, sixth YES, THEY’RE STILL HERE: Issa Gaye, Enzo Joson, Jonas Tibayan, Dave Wilson Yu WELCOME TO THE FAMILY: John Lloyd Clemente, John Galinato, Dave Ildefonso, Shaun Ildefonso, JV Gallego (returning), Joshua Sinclair (returning) GOOD LUCK ON FUTURE ENDEAVORS: J-Jay Alejandro, Jordan Bartlett, Matt Salem, Chino Mosqueda (injured) WHAT SHOULD WE EXPECT FROM NU? National University is not messing around as it tries to put an end to its three-year playoff drought. Even though they lost longtime starters J-Jay Alejandro and Matt Salem, the Bulldogs are all set to welcome blue-chip recruits in the form of Ildefonso brothers Shaun and Dave, John Lloyd Clemente, and John Galinato. “Right now, we’re excited that we got a very talented team, but it’s a very young team.” – head coach Jamike Jarin We named NU the 2018 king of recruiting because of that – and so, nothing less than immediate impact is expected from the Ildefonsos, JLC, and Galinato. “Of course, it’s make or break for everybody – for the entire school, for the entire team.” – head coach Jamike Jarin If all goes well, the new blood will fully fill in the holes beside Senegalese tower Issa Gaye, second-year playmaker Enzo Joson, and stalwart Dave Wilson Yu. More than the rookies, however, head coach Jamike Jarin wants and needs all his holdovers to take another step forward for the Bulldogs to live up to the hype. “We’re so young and the experience that we have is not enough. It has to be a combined effort to make us competitive.” – head coach Jamike Jarin WHO IS/ARE THE PLAYER/S TO WATCH OUT FOR FROM NU? Gaye has a chance to claim the vacant spot of best foreign student-athlete – only if the tall and long-limbed Senegalese tower plays up to his potential. At the wings, NU is brimming with talent in veteran DWY, returning JV Gallego and Joshua Sinclair, and first-year players Shaun and Dave Ildefonso, JLC, and Galinato. “JLC, Dave Ildefonso, Josh Sinclair, those are the guys that you will see in the long run.” – head coach Jamike Jarin The issue that persists, however, is at point guard – as it always has been since Gelo Alolino left. Rev Diputado is as steady as they come and Joson can turn into a problem for opponents as a big guard, but both of them have no time to waste and have to become masterful generals for all the weapons the Bulldogs have. WHY SHOULD WE ROOT FOR NU? NU is, hands down, the 2018 king of recruiting. That means that most of the top talent from this year’s recruitment class will be donning blue and gold. The youth movement is well underway and, coupling that with head coach Jamike Jarin’s uptempo attack, there is no doubt that the Bulldogs will be nothing but fun to watch. Get ready for a lot of running and gunning when the NU Bulldogs will be let out. WHERE WOULD NU BE AT THE END OF UAAP SEASON 81? NU will be fighting for a playoff berth – make no mistake about it. “We’re gonna play with a lot of heart. We’re gonna give a scare to the entire UAAP.” – head coach Jamike Jarin Unlike the likes of favored Ateneo, intact Adamson and FEU, reloaded La Salle, and primed UP, all of whom we know what we’re going to get, we’re still not sure how the Bulldogs look like when they finally play together in the UAAP. When the veterans and the new blood perfectly co-exist, then look out for the Bulldogs. Otherwise, however, add one more year to that playoff drought. WHEN IS NU’S FIRST GAME IN UAAP SEASON 81? NU trots out its stacked lineup up against rebuilding UST and coach Jamike will be matched up once more opposite coach Aldin Ayo on September 7. Of course, It All Begins Here on S+A, S+A HD, LIGA, LIGA HD, and livestream. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Why were we not surprised---that Filipinos, in Metro Manila at least, are tad short of going crazy over "Crazy Rich Asians"? It's the talk of the town in a week that saw a rush of private screenings, including that of Philippine Tatler last Wednesday, where we went to at My Cinema at Greenbelt. The movie adaptation of Kevin Kwan's best seller not only lived up to its hype, it actually gave us a good time. Ever since we broke the news about a year ago that Kris Aquino had bagged a Hollywood contract and would be in the movie---which set off an avalanche of speculations (how cameo-ish was her cameo, they asked)---and Kwan went to Manila and Cebu on a book tour, Filipinos had looked ...Keep on reading: Tatler audience swoons over Henry Golding.....»»
