Other key issues need focus besides arrest of Imelda Marcos – Suarez

Other issues, such as the rise in unemployment with the holiday season nearing, are more important than the conviction and possible arrest of former first lady Imelda Marcos, Minority Floor Leader Rep. Danilo Suarez said on Wednesday. "Kapag kinonvik mo 'yan, then focus and attention of the media will be centered [sa kanya]... Palagay ko mas importante itong about unemployment," Suarez said in jest. [When you convict her, then the focus and attention of the media will be centered on her...

Ateneo overwhelms UST for fine finish in UAAP 81 eliminations

Ateneo de Manila University has won seven straight heading into the Final Four of the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament. The Blue Eagles’ latest win was a breeze as they dominated University of Sto. Tomas from start to finish, 102-62, on Wednesday at the MOA Arena. The defending champions began the game as if it was shot out of a cannon, scoring 16 unanswered points in the first six minutes. “We’re happy with the win because one of the first things we told the team is that coach Tab wasn’t there, but his system is already in place,” assistant coach Sandy Arrespacochaga said post-game. Ivorian rookie recruit Angelo Kouame dropped nine of his 22 points in that strong start as he and his team didn’t miss a beat even without head coach Tab Baldwin who was out due to an illness. That strong start ultimately became a 34-13 opening salvo that built up an insurmountable advantage in favor of Ateneo. Fellow first-year player William Navarro joined in on the fun in the second half, scoring eight of his 17 points after halftime while also totaling five rebounds and two assists. BJ Andrade and Jolo Mendoza also added nine points apiece as the Blue Eagles sweep the second round and end the elimination round holding a 12-2 record. “We didn’t want to take a step back or relax. That’s just our sentiments today,” coach Sandy said. Ateneo, though, is still uncertain about whom it will be facing in the Final Four as all of De La Salle University, Far Eastern University, and the University of the Philippines still have fighting chances at the third and fourth-seeds. For the Growling Tigers, Renzo Subido topped the scoring column with 18 points in their first game without super rookie CJ Cansino. They wind up their campaign at 5-9. BOX SCORES ATENEO 102 – Kouame 22, Navarro 17, Mendoza 9, Andrade 9, Go 8, Ravena 6, Asistio 6, Nieto Ma 5, Nieto Mi 5, Black 4, Verano 4, Daves 4, Belangel 3, Wong 0, Tio 0, Mamuyac 0 UST 62 – Subido 18, Agustin 15, Marcos 13, Mahinay 6, Huang 4, Lee 2, Ando 2, Cosejo 2, Bataller 0, Zamora 0, Bonleon 0, Caunan 0 QUARTER SCORES: 34-13, 58-31, 83-42, 102-62 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
